You cannot vote for your own image. If you do, your votes will be deleted.

And as always, when you vote try to include some things you especially liked about your choices…what made them stand out, what impressed you, etc. This is a learning experience!

Re: June/July 2013 Contest Votes

Here are my votes.
1. Jeremy1986: Nice depth of field. You did a good job and the rifle was not over looked.
2. Chellam: Nice coloring
3. Roger_ele: this kind of looks like a painting, and the left eye is weird
4. MikeMcN1: still looks like a old photo and nice soft coloring
5. diablof: I like the grainy look, not enough coloring
This was a hard contest to judge, I think everyone did a great job.

Red face Re: June/July 2013 Contest Votes

I have looked at these again and have made some changes in my votes. I have so very much to learn from all of you. I am so impressed with what can be done. I will keep plugging away, listening, watching, and learning and maybe someday......

1. Snapper50s- there is something compelling about this one. Although it is not “perfect,” I think it really retains the era, colors, and feel better than all the others. The way you did the face makes me feel as though this is a real human being–someone’s son.
2. Diablof – even though the colors are not as vibrant, I like the overall look of this. Again, you make this young soldier look so human – he has that soulful look. Love it!
3. Roger_ele – I like the way you brought out the textures/folds colors of the pants.
4. Chellam-looks a bit more like a painting but I like the color contrasts. A little dark. You also got “the look” on the young soldier’s face.
5. Jeremy – Love the flag but I feel like the soldier is not really alive.
