Vote for your Favorite Photo - May

This voting thread is now open and will close this Saturday May 31st at 10pm (PDT)

You may view the entries in the Competition thread or all together here: -- http://www.pbase.com/shadepuppy/competition

Voting is open to all RetouchPro members.

Post your choices (in this thread) for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd by listing the member's name. If you want to explain your reasons, please do.

Vote for the 3 entries you like the best - you might consider how well a photo captures your attention, how well it deals with the subject, how well it fits with the chosen theme, how well the technical details are handled -- lighting, composition, sharpness, etc., -- you are the judge of what appeals to you and what is important to you in an image and the subject category.

Votes will be weighted to give greater weight to First Place votes than to Second and greater weight to Second than to Third place votes. When you place a vote for First Place, that entry will receive four (4) points; when you place a vote for Second, that entry will receive two (2) points, and a vote for Third Place will receive one (1) point.


1. Entry X (their name) - First Place
2. Entry A (their name) - Second Place
3. Entry C (their name) - Third Place


The winner will be notified and will choose a subject for June.

Re: Vote for your Favorite Photo - May

notsogood - really like the color and she has very interesting eyes
K_GiMiNi_M - I like cats and the depth of field
Mister8 - interesting perspective

I also liked: Vegas_Ric - nice detail but I think i would have liked it better if the catch lights were not over the pupils.

1. pickle-eyes-CathyH.jpg - I love the evil look in this cat's eyes, like he's saying "Now what!"
2. OlBaldy-Eyes.jpg - Good use of different "kind" of eyes.
3. Zlatan-Skauskas.jpg - Just cause I like cats.

Re: Vote for your Favorite Photo - May

The first two were no brainers for me.

1. Mister8. I love the composition, the lighting, the creativity, and especially thinking outside the box on this one.

2. Zlatan. Tack sharp on the eye while leaving the rest of the cat's face in mystery.

3. A three way tie with the tie breaker going to CathyH just because I like cats.

Sweetlight and Notsogood were the other part of the three way. GREAT photos. Wonderful treatment, beautiful lighting on both portraits.

Janet

Re: Vote for your Favorite Photo - May

1. Janet Petty-I'm voting for yours anyway cuz it made me laugh. If your photo can do that it deserves a win in my book.

2. OlBaldy-very moody photo and made me laugh.

3. Skauskas- Just a real solid photo. Nice framing and focus.

1. Cathy H.. Hmmm, a cat with attitude! Who would have thought it?

2. Fedje.. Cute baby, a tighter crop eliminating all the yellow and extraction evidence would have helped a lot

3. K_GiMini_M.. nice capture
