So my company (one of the largest financial institutions in the world) is holding their annual photo competition. I'm a new employee so this is my first time entering. Winners (there are 13 in total) will get their photo featured in the company annual calendar (one is for the cover) and will be awarded US$1500. The basic rules is:

- Must be in landscape/horizontal format
- The theme for this year's competition is "contrast"

Let me know which one you like the best! I'm debating about entering in the following one of the following photos:

1)

These are all so fantastic it is hard to help you out :)
They all exemplify 'contrasty images'....

I think #2 is my favorite. It just seems the most dramatic. I also love #1...

GOOD LUCK! :)

#1 or #4
Since it is for a calender, that means it will be hanging on a lot of walls for 30 days.

Wow. They should just give you the entire 20K and let you do all thirteen shots.
Really.

Wow...these are great! I like #2 the best for that contest category, but #5 is more like a 1a. I love the progression from dark to light at you sweep your eyes left to right...great capture!
