    if i voted for myself id be much closer to winnin this badboy!

    I like the redish color in the bottom of #5... I think it would lose something if you cropped it (besides 1/3 of the picture...)

      I voted for yours ^^

      Edit: I had a hard time choosing between yours or Broacher's.

        Number 8 just has a "gray" feeling to it. Only thing that would make it "grayer" would be to have Alcatraz there in the distance. Since, based on location, that would take an *extremely* long telephoto lense, it stands just great as it is.

          I know 1/3 is drastic, but it makes for a very dramatic panoramic. I just think it's much more dramatic and deep without the ground, makes you feel like you're out at sea in a storm. Much more daunting than standing on shore.

          Forgive me Mo for tampering with your shot.

            thanks exodus

            Mac- it becomes a totally different picture (which i think is what you were going for...) but I prefer the uncropped... I really like the subtle color in the sand and the reflection of the sky on the shore. Either way great pic mo!

              To me, it's really tough that we have colour and bw mixed together here. I guess one of the real challenges of BW photography is to get what Morea has alluded to: 'color'. In true greys, that has to be a psychic colour association, very subject dependent. High contrast black and white shots have to take it one step further and minimize tone, highlighting pattern, shape, texture instead.

              Then I think of the assigned theme: grey. It's only a word, not a design parameter. A full colour shot of say, a homeless person eating in a brightly lit MacDonald's-- that would be taking the theme to an editorial level. I admit I'm a little disappointed that nobody took the assignment too far in the editorial direction. There's also 'mood', expression. Colour contrast? A single grey element in an array? (say a greyed out light bulb in a marquee panel)

              I don't know how many of you have ever played judge in an art or design contest, but another thing that I've become aware of over the years of doing these kind of things is just how important the presentation structure is. It's very difficult when the photos are stacked so close like this to not have adjacent entries 'colouring' each other. The sequence of presentation also has a real effect.

              But, that's one of the differences between commercial and the fine arts. Most of the time, we don't know who the neighbours to our ad designs will be. You hope for the best, and design for the worst.

              Good luck all!

                  ick.
                  that was kinda tough....

                  I like a bunch of them, but if it REALLY comes down to it, which one's are good and which ones are WOW!

                  after being to a photog. workshop w/ some big wigs teaching/ critiquing i look at everything much more critically now.

                  I like #3 because i think it's different. i haven't really seen that shot a bunch of times more or less. OR maybe i'm just partial to farmland....

                  ps. i didn't vote for 3 though

                      definitely. These just get better and better!

                      What do you guys want to take pix of for the December contest? I need to get that started. There are a bunch of ideas on the "brainstorming" thread, and I'd love some feedback on what you guys would like to shoot.
