    This could possibly be the most difficult contest we have so far. Every picture is a winner.

    Please vote for the picture that best represents our theme, which is a valley.

    I had to go with physarrista, though it was very hard to choose. What won out in the end was thinking of standing in that stream over that sheer drop. Lots of beautiful shots this time, so it took a little extra something to tip the scales.

    Oh, geez, they're all absolutely gorgeous and perfect! Since I can't decide based on view, composition, skill, or fit with the theme, because they all qualifty, my vote is going to physarrista for bravery. Going the extra distance and putting one's life on the line to get the perfect shot should qualify for something, and in this case, it qualifies for my vote.

    OK, next time I'm going to make up a story that I took a picture while running in high heels on the edge of a cliff and being chased by a pack of wolves.

    :)

    Yes - indeed! :approve:

    It seems they all do that. :rolleyes:

    I've been to the same spot as Janus, and I probably have somewhere a nearly identical photograph along the Yosemite valley.

    This is ridiculous I can't choose. I must go think.

    Would've it helped if I had told you that this picture was taken during the first long road trip we took with my daughter? She was about 20 mo. old at the time, and to keep her entertained I made a tape of songs from a Sesame Street video. That tape played almost constantly the whole trip. I don't know how many times I heard C is For Cookie!

    Not exactly putting one's life on the line, but...

    I went with hypnagogue because the rock colour is truly outstanding and that lone person standing atop the rocks truly gives a sense of proportion that gets lost without a comparative. Not to say that the rest of the photos aren't spectacular, because they truly are. It was a tough decision.

    Someone put me at gunpoint, and then I'll choose a picture.:grumpy:

    Why do you guys make it so tough? I wish political elections were like this.

    Astronuc's picture is not showing up for me, so I will wait until it shows up, but this will probably only make the decision harder.
     
  15. Apr 15, 2007 #14
    Astronucs isn't showing up for me either. I still can't decide.

    Nothing new there; just another amazing picture. :biggrin:

    Mine seems to be showing up now. I think there was a glitch in the imageshack server. I won't feel bad if mine doesn't get a vote - really. :smile:

    I just wanted to round it out and match hypnagogue's picture from Bryce Canyon, which is near Zion NP.

    They are all great photos and wonderful places to see in person. :approve:

    I voted for physsarista's photo - but it was an excruciating decision. :cry:

    I'm still wondering where that is - near Grenoble or the Swiss border. I definitely want to visit that place, as well as those that I have not seen in person yet.

    This is a reminder that you have less than 2 days left to vote in this difficult contest. It is extremely tight right now, so every vote counts!

    I went with Hypnagogue but it was nearly an impossible decision.

    I went with Zz because of the colors and the lush green valley. Hypnagogue would get my vote for cliffs, that is a stunning picture.

    Funny, when Janus posted, I said "that's going to get my vote!" Then when I saw Monique's I said "that's going to get my vote!" Then Zz posted...

    Janus where is your picture taken, it looks like its from the same place as the one from the mountain contest? It looks like the type of place I would like to eventually visit.
