Hey guys. I'm thinking about entering some photos from my recent trip to Alaska in a photo contest. However, I suck at picking which ones of my photos I like best. I narrowed it down to 8, but would love y'all's (spelling?) help to get it down to 3. C&C is great too. Thanks for voting! And in case anyone wants to see more/bigger photos, go here (external link) or here (external link).

Like them all, 1, 6, 8 if choosing only three. I think 6 is outstanding.

1. I like this one, but it's just a tad over-exposed.
2. Don't care for the BW and I'd like to see the Wolf with more room to the left then as it is now.
3 & 4 Looks more like a snapshot then a photo, not that there's anything wrong with snapshots.
5, 6 & 8 are WAY too saturated for my tastes.
7. Doesn't "wow" me.

That said, I like #6 the best, but I don't like the saturation and you cropped some of the canoe.

8 is a little too much on the blue. 6 is the clear winner imo. I do like the light in 7.

#6. KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

#6, but tone down the saturation just a tad and if you have room to un-crop the part of the canoe that was lost, it would be perfect.

Thanks guys. Yeah, unfortunately the stitch job I did on 6 forced me to crop the bottom part of the canoe.
