Help Judge the PHOTO Contest! You choose the TOP Pics entered!

Here it is......the Amateur PHOTO Contest entries are in, and I need your help! Thank you to all of the artists that sent in images, I had more then I anticipated. I had over 100 images entered for the PHOTO Contest and there are some really great images here! This is the initial blog to narrow down the competition, let me know if there are any mistakes as I tried really hard to make sure the image matched the artist. Please leave a comment on this blog telling me what your top 3 images are. These photos are in no particular order. You can go by the letter under the image, as well as the the name of the artist, since some artists have more then one image that made it in. Tell us why you love the image! The images with the most positive feedback will go to a vote. Please no negative feedback. A poll will go up and the true voting will begin with only the best images. There were just too many images to go straight to a vote, so here's your chance to be a photography judge. Artists, share this blog on your Facebook, and anyone else that would like to help out with the voting, please share on your Facebook for more feedback.     What images do you like and why?

  7. All were excellent, but my favorites:

    V - Amy Therriault

  8. I - Rosa Garcia - The serious expression on the dog's face made me laugh a bit because it is so often I hear how dogs are not expressive and don't have emotions, I feel this picture somewhat captures the opposite...
    I2 - Rachel Archer - I loved the playfullness of the splashing and how the water was caught in that motion. Reminds me of innocence.
    A2 - April Orozco - AMAZING colors in this one. I love Dia De Los Muertos so the significance of this along with the vibrancy of the colors really caught my eye!
    Those are my top 3 but they were all exceptional and beautiful! Awesome job photographers!!
