p.1 #1 · Help with Contest entries....


Hello all.... I generally don't post here, but would really appreciate your help. I need to select 5 of these images for an entry into a contest/juried exhibition. There is no particular theme for the entries (IOW, all subject matter is allowed) but the main judge is a well-known National Geographic photographer who does mainly wildlife and landscapes... although this is not "supposed" to matter.

Anyways... any help you can offer would be appreciated... and just so you know, I have a thick skin... If you think something sucks, no need to beat around the bush......

Thanks in adavance!

Fun shots!

If I had to choose I'd go with 1, 3, 4, 5 and 7.

Looks like you're a diver too! Is that a nurse in 4? Great angle!

Quick comments:

1 - can you increase the sharpness some and pull some more texture/detail out of the tree?

3 - drop the highlights a bit to reduce the flash spot on the face

4 - love it!!

5 - love this too, great shot/composition.. really speaks volumes here

7 - cowfish? might not appeal to some folks because of the tight crop

All in all, nice shots!

Cheers,

Jeff

Q

Jeff


Thanks for your input.....

And yes, that is one very curious nurse shark.... Here's a shot a friend made of me making that picture.... I think the shark could see its reflection on the dome port of the housing... it kept coming up and nudging it with its snout... not in an aggressive manner at all.. just seemed curious...
