Like most photographers - amateur or professional, every year I shoot many thousands of images. Most of them are discarded for one reason or another, and maybe 1 in 100 will become a final image (if I'm lucky). There are some though, that while being good images, simply fall through the cracks.
There may be some niggling imperfection, or I have a very similar image that I decided to go with instead. They're not 'bad' images, by any stretch - and one or two I would really liked to have used, but simply couldn't justify two very similar images, even if I loved both.
I'm going to do a 'year in review' post, where I go through some of my favourite images of the year, but I also thought I'd draw some attention to the ones that haven't yet seen the light of day.
