My best photos of 2013

I continue my tradition to post my best photos of previous year for you to choose your favorite ones. It's always interesting to see what other people think and percieve.

You're welcome to write comments too!


1. TV Tower
In light festival Staro Riga time TV tower is creating incredible effects on the sky



2. Commieblock textures
Sometimes an interesting compositions can be found just by looking out of window a bit differently



3. Vecāki Vecāķos
Parents in Riga's Vecāķi beach with their kids in one of longest days/shortest nights in 2013



4. Red umbrella
The umbrella's red was almost only color standing out in this white winter harmony



5. Tall Ships Regatta Night
After 10 years, regatta "The Tall Ships Races" has visited Riga again.



6. New promenade
In a sunny August evening people enjoyed the new promenade alongside Daugava river



7. High(way+rise)
Best of ~50 shots I tried to take at Eastern highway next to New Teika highrise in Riga



8. Spiderweb road to sun
Photo of autumn sunset in meadow next to Alauksta lake, Vidzeme



9. Riga Life Arteries
Wasn't easy to take an night aerial from a flying plane window, but with the help of high ISO it was possible. Here you see mostly all main streets of Riga central part



10. Brussels' readers
Just a lucky moment to catch these two book adorers in Brussels in December



11. Vidzeme stony coast



12. Demolishing soviet Riga



13. Passing by decadence



14. Spring sunset



15. Vilnius perspective



16. Malta aerial



Tall Ships Races skyline



17. Liepāja sunset



18. Washing away



19. Blue dragonfly



20. Ķīpsala colours



21. Tram at Theatre



22. Castle of Light



23. Amsterdam's classic



24. Riga from TV tower

The one with the tall ships is the stand out shot for me, although the overall quality is top notch. Urban Puzzle...Amsterdam?

Thanks!

I forgot to add a multiple choice option but if you find it too hard to choose one picture, you can write several of them in comment.

Too many good photos to choose just one - but I went for 'Passing Decadence'. It is the image which intrigues me the most.
