The decision

Pin It Dear blogging friends,

I sit on the threshold of a decision.

You see, my sister showed up not too long ago with this magazine advertisement for a photography contest. According to the official rules, a photographer is allowed to enter this contest and ‘showcase’ a sampling of images which summate their photography experiences.

So, I have a decision. I have to pick approximately 12 images to submit should I choose to do this. However, there is a problem. You see, I feel that my photos are like children, I simply cannot choose a few of them as my favorites without offending all of the others.

Now comes the favor…

Would you help me to decide?

Now, this doesn’t have to be painful…in fact, you could just let me know (if you have a minute and feel so inclined) which of the shots from my photography website (or this blog) is your favorite(s). Oh yeah, if they don’t have a name (such as on this blog) would you just briefly describe them?

Thanks, in advance.

P.S. Sorry I’m not all that eloquent tonight…after 6 hours of parent-teacher conferences, I feel like I am going to drop.

Great idea, I think this is the best way to get an un-subjective view on this.

I liked the one under October 1st where there are three kids walking in a field with their backs to the camera. Enjoyed looking at your photos, you do a great job!
