Google + Top 11 of 2011

As some of you may know, I have been a pretty active member of the photographic community at Google+ over the last few months. I have to say that while I had serious doubts in the beginning (another social media outlet?!?! who needs THAT!) I have become a fervent adept once I got a taste of it. A really vibrant community, endless new possibilities, great interaction. It has been lots of fun, and I am sure, will be for a while.

My way to give back to the G+ community was to organize and curate a list of albums from G+ members each featuring their top 11 images of the last year. I also volunteered to choose the top 20 entries and feature them on my blog. The response was overwhelming and truly fantastic. With over 100 entries to look at and choose from, I had my job cut out for me! After days and days of browsing through these fantastic entries (you can find them all here), and agonizing hours to whittle them down, my final list is ready at last! I have to admit there were just too many entries to choose from and I ended up going over my self-imposed limit of 20. But hey, my game, my rules :D .

So, without further ado, here is the list of (slightly over) 20 entries that made it. In no particular order:
