I absolutely think that the first picture makes the strongest photographic impression.  Without explaining where the picture was taken it is a very powerful image.  I think you should submit that one for your entry.  Don't get me wrong, I like all the pictures, but the first showcases your talent best.  Great job!

oh, i'm definately entering that one. There are actually four categories I'm entering in: Scenic (color), Scenic (monochrome), People (monochrome), and People (color). I still need to find a color people one though.

Like nearly everyone else, I vote for #2.  Nice contrast of sharp and unfocused, light and dark, color and monochrome.  Nicely framed, and those little thinner petals that jaunt off to the left injects even more life into this picture - very dynamic.  Good work!

Nope, have to disagree with folks, I absolutely love number 3 - I like the veining in the petal near the back, the off-set center, the different levels of focus, and the contrast of the greenery behind.  They are all gorgeous!  And thank you for sharing your experience at the museum.  If I am ever in Berlin, I will have to make a trip.

The 1st photo is stunning and hopefuly catches the eye of the judges. I know they also view them under very bright lights, are you having them contest printed? I have mixed feelings about the contest prints because they make them darker to compensate for the bright lights used to judge, but then in black and whites I think you lose some detail.


For the flower I like #1 it has a strong focal point I would possibly crop a tad off the right side to get rid of the line on the upper right that was a tad distracting to the eye, my 2nd choice would be #5 due to the focal point again I found 2-4 lacked a focus for me and my eye wandered trying to figure out where to land...all nice though but I'd go with #1 or #5

i like them all, especially the ones with the magnolia, they look so decadent and sad, like an old tattered wedding dress... i don't know if that made sense

anywho, i wouldn't use the picture of the museum, because I've seen many that are very similar (i live in Berlin, maybe that's why). Don't get me wrong, i think it's a cool picture and a good angle, but apparently many photographers think so too.

Great pics from the museum.  I definitely pick the 1st picture. For some reason, though, I think it would like more stunning if you rotated it 90 degrees to the right.  Why I chose it over the others?  Open composition is great, and even though the rest are open, too...this one is waaay more striking.  Your eyes move through the photo (the light parts of the flower).  Generally speaking an all around winner and much better than the rest.
