Autoblog's Top 100 Photographs of 2009 – Click above for high-res image gallery

We're a privileged bunch here at Autoblog. We drive some pretty amazing cars and go to the world's best automotive events. Of course, it's our job to not just keep these experiences to ourselves, but let others enjoy them as well. Our cameras are perpetually in hand, capturing the best moments of each test drive, auto show, auction, race and everything else to share with you, our faithful readers.

With 2009 coming to a close, nothing reminds us more of how lucky we are than browsing through the thousands of photos we've taken ourselves throughout the year. Of course, we wanted to share the memories with you as well, so we picked out our favorite images taken by the Autoblog team in the last year and put them in one big gallery. We've also included a link to the original story from which each image was pulled, just in case you missed out the first time. So to honor the year that was, we give you Autoblog's top 100 photographs of 2009. Enjoy, and let us know which are ones are your favorites!

For nostalgia's sake, feel free to also check out the top 50 photographs of 2008.

      100 photographs... all contained within the absolute worst gallery software i've ever encountered on the internet.

      congratulations. how about a New Years resolution to go ahead and fix that turd you call a "gallery"...?

      Can someone please put these into a .zip?

      Would be a brilliant My pictures slideshow screensaver.

      You guys sure have some slick photography... I only have one lil' beef - why must the 'large' version of each image be so... small? It's a shame that they're just shy of being large enough for full-size wallpapers (at least on my 1680x1050 monitors). Oh well, keep up the great work AB, I look forward to what you'll come up with in 2010!

      I count 15 maybe 20 great photos out of your 100. A lot are the same angle with almost the same background. Unless you giving yourselves credit for focus and basic composition, you should have kept 20 best photos.

        I'd have to agree, I think 100 was too many, way to many. Still pictures of cars are nice when it's a car that deserves attention. Still shots of basic everyday economy cars (Mazda 3, Mitsu Outlander?) should not be included.
        Also, less staged pictures please, make them seem more candid sometimes. The historic races and actual action shots are what I'm talking about. The rolling shots of the cars you've included/reviewed are too staged, and there's too many of them.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yea, I have to agree... Was looking through them and some I was just like... wait.. what? Like the side shot of the blue Camaro with the white brick wall behind it.. there is nothing interesting about that picture.

      i am starting to be bothered by the amount of love autoblog gives to camaros and mustangs. seriously, why? they are ugly cars and are pathetic compared to european cars. you'd think autoblog's staff consisted of a bunch of rednecks given the amount of face-time these crappy cars get.

        You have no right to be alive.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think one of the reasons they are getting so much attention right now is because we have been missing good muscle car models for the last 30 years. Perhaps once the fascination with our return to good design settles the focus will back off a little more.

      Dear Autoblog,

      In order to make 2010 a better year you're going to have to fix your photo gallery. It is terrible. If I click a thumbnail I expect to see the picture I clicked on, not the first one in the gallery. The same thing goes for when I switch a picture from small to large.

      I love you guys and I wish you all & everyone who frequents this site a Happy New Year.

      Sincerely,

      Slightly Frustrated Autoblog Reader who has it set as his homepage

      Wow amazing pictures. Great job Autoblog!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Ironic, I was just looking for some pictures to put on my digital picture frame.

        "First Drive: 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo is Stuttgart's quickest car yet"

        Er, no, it's not.

        The 997 GT2, Carrera GT and even the old 959 are all faster, both in acceleration and top speed.

        There, my geek impulse is sated for now...

        That isn't ironic, it's coincidental

      Better send some cash to Robert Silvers for that mosaic.
