Photography Favorites of 2008, Goals for 2009

Photography has really become my new passion in 2008.  Looking back at the photographs I took this past year, I can tell I learned a good bit.  The year started slow, photography speaking, but picked up as I had much more time to shot during a two week family vacation, then months later while taking a workshop with Bryan Peterson.  Here are a collection of my favorite shots this past year, including several that allowed me to work on my Lightroom and Photoshop skills.
