wooooh yah, WAY difficult challenge!!
I was going back and forth the whole week, tried all kinds of stuff, but the one I ended up picking was the one with the most pop indeed.......
Thank you so much Kent for the compliment!
Geeee and now I got to vote and there are actually several that catch my eye.
I love Kent's picture for indeed how sweet your girl looks, she is a natural for sure
Cuba's is also great, love the way those clouds are built up, but somehow I feel like there should have been a 'resting point' in the picture where my eyes can settle, does that make sense?
Then the two dandelions, funny thing is I was trying to find something like that, find something in nature that is built out of something repetitive, where it becomes almost something 'mechanical' (again, does that make sense?) so I made several pictures in the same category but just could not find the right one and then you guys make it extra hard by having 2 of those, hahahahaa, I am going to settle though for Purple Puppy, I like the amount of black in the picture, more than I do where it fills the whole picture, weird thing is that when I myself would have made the pic I would probably have made it the way chopper did.........maybe that is why I vote for Purple's, it's different than what I would have done
All compliments to everybody that participated, this one was tough!
 thanks photomom!!!!!!
