HELP!

So, I'm entering a local photography contest and I'm only allowed two submissions. Unfortunately, I can't decide which two pictures to submit. Out of the more than 700 photos I've taken in the last six months, these four are my favorite, but I can't decide which two I like the very best because I'm too close to them to be objective. This is where you come in. Please vote for your two favorite by leaving a comment or e-mailing me here. The pictures that garner the two highest votes will be the ones I submit. Your assistance is appreciated!

To view larger images, click on the picture.





Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (or click here and see the last picture)










Lotus flower at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens (or here and see the last picture)






Lincoln at Sunrise (or here)







Widewater Gap on the C&O Canal Towpath near Great Falls (or here and see the second picture)





Let the voting begin! Vote early and vote often. And thank you for voting.

So many beautiful pics. I'll go with Lotus and Lincoln.

Huh. I can only see the first two pictures, the second two are little red x'es...which are quite fetching of course.

Miss Understood said...

I can only see the first two, too. the Lotus is beautiful. I'll try again later!

I LOVE the lotus (it's a picture that makes me sigh heavy and wish I'd taken it instead of you, but I am glad someone took it - I would buy this picture) and the White Water Gap picture (serene)

Di and Ms. U: I've reloaded the pictures. Hopefully this time you can see them. If not, I've provided a link to the locations where I first posted them (the one of Lincoln here, the other three on my photography blog, D.C. Confidential.) Sorry for the glitch.

Lincoln first, then the water gap.

Lincoln at Sunrise!

I'm definitely voting for the Lincoln pic (have you ever heard this rumor that he is supposed to be spelling out ASL in a silent support of American sign language?

My second choice is the lotus flower.

Good luck!

Lotus and Lincoln. Fer sher.

My vote is for the lotus and Lincoln. All of the photos are beautiful, though. Those two just seem to capture the subject perfectly...

Looks like Lincoln and the lotus flower are winning hands down here.

I'll keep the polls open a few more nights. I don't have to submit my photos until Dec. 1.

Thanks to those who have voted. And to those who haven't, as the entry says: Vote early and vote often!

I do love that Mr. Lincoln. Beautiful and evocative.
