I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It’s hard to believe the year is almost done.

For the last collection of Faved on Flickr for 2010, I’m pleased to present another strong collection of powerful images. Some are really cool. Others are great portraits. Some are perfect captures of a moment. All are excellent photography.

Every Sunday, we present a small number of the outstanding images that were posted to the Life In LoFi group on Flickr recently.

Click through for more of this week’s faves. >>>

This week’s lead image is a brilliant, almost surreal photo by Dave Weekes. It’s almost Escher-esque in its lines and composition. Miki Ballard’s “Bouldering Poses.” is a series of great monochromes that make the scene move and come alive. Ubertism’s “Eclipse” is full of contrasts, not only in the image itself but the great contrast between the title of the photo and the content.

Emily Rose has been taking her iPhoneography up a notch and moving it indoors. “pixie” by Emily Rose is an outstanding shot, professionally lit and shot using her new tripod mount. It’s a great glamour shot. This week features other excellent portraits from Bat Ray Day, Jeff White, Aga Dhiyaulhaq and a nicely apped self-portrait quadtych from Red Kiwi.

Clockwork Orangutan has created an ongoing series of photographs with this mask. The image selected here, “Test Shot 19″ has great color and crop. The model’s blue eye stands out against the deep color of the rest of the image. The crop leaves so much to the imagination.

I like Dixon Hamby’s street art series and I love the contrast and deep color of “the scream” and the contrast with the gray, old man behind it. Greg Schmigel’s “the lunchbreak” is another one of his excellent candids of an everyday moment. The convergence of lines in T. S. Elliott’s “Great Hall of Observation” is just about perfect as his composition creates silhouettes that put the viewer into the image.

Links go directly to each iPhoneographer’s Flickr photostream. If you like what you see, please click and check out their other work. For your chance to be seen, all you have to do is be a member of the Flickr group, post, and keep adding great images. If you haven’t joined yet, here’s the link to Life In LoFi on Flickr. Then, check back here every Sunday. We’ll have a dozen more next week.

I hope you enjoy this week’s selections and kudos to the iPhoneographers. The point is to go out there, shoot and have fun. Many thanks to all who post and share.
