Hello LJ. I hope everyone is glad the week is winding down. Mine was craptastic.
I'm closing the lid on that and looking forward to a busy weekend.
I hope those that have the weekend off have fun things planned.

One of the things I have to do this weekend is to try and pick two submissions for an upcoming photography competition I'm entering.

AND

I was hoping I could get help with that from all of you . . . .

There are ten 'finalists' behind

In numerical order (only to avoid trying to call them something in a comment):

PZ01Photobucket


PZ02Photobucket

PZ03Photobucket

PZ04Photobucket

PZ05Photobucket

PZ06Photobucket

PZ07Photobucket

PZ08Photobucket

PZ09Photobucket

PZ10Photobucket

cut tag.

If you've got a couple of minutes tonight or over the weekend, could you pop in, take a look at the 10 finalists and leave a comment with which were your top three? (that is if you liked any of them) Any feedback would be of the awesome. Thank you for taking a look if you do!

Okay, now get out there and get to your Friday night plans.

I like no. 3 best as a stand-alone photo. Then 8, then 10. The others are okay but they don't make me go wow.

Sorry, my vision is jaded from seeing really amazing stuff on Flickr. Heh.

The weather is horrible .. it's cold (for here) and stormy .. so I'm not going out this Friday.

Have a great weekend :)

Hello, hello.

*blech!* Horrible weather heading into a weekend is NOT GOOD!
I hope you have snuggle-under-a-blanket activities at hand.
...ummm, that wasn't meant to sound as naughty as it might.
Close the blinds and snuggle down with a good book?

Flickr? Oh goodness I wouldn't never compare my stuff to some of the amazing work on Flickr - or yours!

Try and stay warm and thank you for taking the time to vote.

I mean, it's subjective. I like the more abstract shots more than buildings or animals. But all of these are just beautiful.

Hey, how's it going? You and your teacher having fun 'studying'?
Did you get out on your bike today? It was gorgeous!

Thank you for commenting on these!
I hope the ones I end up submitting (I'm allowed two) get good rankings.

Hiya! Congrats again on the new position. Any word on the magazine position?
(I've got my fingers crossed!)

Thank you for taking a look through these and leaving your choices, darlin'.

YEAH I PICKED FOUR THAT'S HOW I ROLL

9: offers a bit of a visual trick -- I mistook them for bowls of rice at first glance, and then had to readjust, which was fun

5: that tiny red window on the whitewashed wall looks brave and lonely and just strikes something inside me

1: this photo pretty much sums up my complicated relationship with water, which is that I need to be near it and yet it terrifies me. I don't know how you manage to do that with one photograph, and yet--!

3:I love this one for the way you've framed it, but I would also say it's the most commercial of the ones I've chosen; that might affect whether or not it makes a good candidate for the contest.

Also, eeeeee! I have my fingers crossed for whichever you choose to submit! If the judging is post-St. Paddy's, we shall hoist a dram in your entry's honour when we get together and have (vegetarian) colcannon. *g*

*eeee!* Commentary! This is of the awesome!!! Thank you.

The preliminary 'judging' is happening on the 24th.
So pencil me in for an evening of Colcannon and Shinannigans!

Thank you again for checking these out and picking FOUR of them. :o)

*muah!*

I love how different everyone's choices are (not that it's making your job any easier, heh)!

I love 1, 9, and 5 best. Though 1 and 9 are tied for first place, with 9 ever, ever so slightly in the lead. By, like, a micron.

Mar. 7th, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
LOL. There are actually a couple of strong front runners so far.
I'm blown away that people are stopping in, taking a look and commenting.

Hello, hello! Thank you so much for 'voting'. :o) I'm kind of partial to PZ10 too.
But there are a couple of definite favourites most people seem to be picking.
I think it's going to be a no brainer as to which I'll be submitting.
Again, thank you for leaving your vote and very flattering comment!

Hi sis - are you kidding me? this is a tough one - they're all great, If I must chose, I guess my choice in order of preference would be: 7,9,8.

Hello Sis!!! It's weird and very cool to see you here. Thank you sweetie!
PZ08 has the most 'votes' so far. PZ09 is right behind it in second place.
Yours is the only vote PZ07 has so far.

Talk to you on the weekend. Love you!

Hello you. When are we meeting the new you? Have you decided to go ahead with the name switch? PaperDollKisses is catchy!

Thank you so much for leaving your comment. At the moment PZ08's in the lead, with PZ09 is right behind it.

hee! i really like 9, and i think 8 is really interesting, and kind of dramatic. i also heart 3, which made me think of brokeback the second i saw it. :D

Wow, very interesting call on PZ03. I went for a photo outing one weekend at "Historic Fort Langley". It's an old fort built over a century ago by the Hudson's Bay Fur Trading Company. It was cool there.

PZ 08 and 09 are the two leading images so far. It's going to be pretty easy deciding which I'm going to submit.

3, 5, and 9 - and in that order, too! I don't really have a background in photography or a particularly visual mind, so I can't articulate why I like them best, I just know that they were the ones that jumped out at me.

Good luck!

Thank you so much for looking through them and 'voting'.

"I just know that they were the ones that jumped out at me."
I want you to know that that means so much to me! Thank you.
