Professional Photographer's Magazine Contest

Every year I see the contest unfold.  I see the entries.  The judges' critique.  The winner.  I then wish I would have made it a priority to enter. 

That will not happen again!  I need to enter more competitions.  First, it is a great way to get feedback.  What I'm doing right.  It also can stretch me in helping me see what I could improve on. 

This year I have selected 9 best examples of my real-world portrait photography. I can enter ONE image so I'm asking your help to narrow it down.  Please leave a comment below with your favorite Image Number.  Images will be judged on technical and artistic merit, not a "theme" so vote accordingly!  Thanks so much for helping everyone!

{Remember every registered vote will be entered in the drawing}
{ONE vote per person please}

    I would like to cast a vote for 3, 4, 9. I know that on'y narrows it down to 1/3. But this is why.. #3 has an awesome angle for technique. #4 Great timing to capture that smile and pose. #5 Well set up, but at genuine real life expression and tone to the picture. That is why I can't decide :)

  21. I really love them all but #4. That is such a great age, and too hard to capture that smile! Every mom needs to have a picture like this.

  22. I'm reading a lot of praise for #3 & #5 and while I agree that they are very, very nice -- both of these "photo shots" have been way over used (with all due respect!!!). The most unique and beautiful photo here is #8..... WOW!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. #8 has such great color and the children's expressions are priceless!

  24. I like #9!! Hope it goes well, Chrisitne

  26. # 3 for sure, shows depth and amazing angles!

  27. I agree with Anonymous. Though precious, I feel like I’ve seen #3 before. And though #1 has breathtaking scenery, superb lighting and of course gorgeous subject matter (speaking as only a mother could ;-) I am going with #8. I think it is very original and the color is brilliant.

  28. My vote is #5 but 8 is awsome too...
