Vote for your Favorite Photo - November



This voting thread is now open and will close this Sunday November 30 at 7pm (MST) (2 a.m. Greenwich Time)


You may view the entries in the Competition thread or all together here:



Voting is open to all RetouchPro members. If you submitted an entry, you may not vote for yourself.


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 December.

Re: Vote for your Favorite Photo - November

1. Frank Lopes - beautiful color and nice pano
2. Pagetk - I like the composition, the tracker to the side and the one tall tree in the middle.
3. Swabees - very tricky shot, I'm not sure I liked how soft it is.

corey b - I loved the colors of fall with the hot colors of summer.
dcoats - this is one of those photo with a overall color theme, for some reason it doesn't show much depth, probably the small size.

Swarbees - Great shot. I would have done a bit of post processing to darken the top part of the picture a bit more. Nevertheless, the shot is tricky enough to begin with.

CathyH - I like the composition and the colors. Very nice.

Frank Lopes - Lovely Pano and great colors. Pretty traditional fall picture. You did a nice job.

I didn't get around to entering. Too many other irons in the fire. Here is what I would have posted if I had been more on the ball. Enjoy.

Janet

1. CathyH ---The colors aren't as dramatic as a couple of the others but I love the way the path and the river draw me into the scene.
2. Frank--wonderful colors and composition
3. PagetK--this one has a wonderful harvest feel

1 - CathyH: I thought including the path, with it's shadows, enhanced the composition of this beautiful and peaceful scene.
2 - Frank Lope: Probably not the best asymmetric balance, but truly beautiful colors and reflections!
3 - dkcoats: Very nice composition and lighting!
