I guess that it would be good to call out the best image which I think that I took last year. It was a hard choice but I think that the imag e which I took of the Iris Nebulae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iris_Nebula) is probably one of the best I have ever taken. What makes this image so special is the visible structure in the nebulae itself but also the dark nebulae which surrounds the object and moves to the top of the image. The blue of the nebulae is not enhanced and is in stark contrast to the wolf rayet star in the lower right hand side.
