    I went with larkspur; that photo is fantastic. I thought about spacetiger's but I did not quite understand the symbolism with the box parts.

    Very tough choice!

    I'd go with Larkspur's picture for artistic quality or turbo's or hypatia's for sentimental reasons, but in the end having to choose only one - I went with turbo's Snow Valentine.

    This is incredibly difficult! Larkspur's entry is amazing for sheer photographic quality, especially the unique choice of lighting (even if it was accidentally discovered), Zz's is so cute, turbo's is really sweet and romantic, but, I think I'm going to go with ST's entry...both for creativity, and for best exemplifying both the his and hers views of how the holiday should be best celebrated. :biggrin: :rofl: If I could vote more than once, I'd give all 4 photos a vote though. This was truly a tough decision, because each is a winner for a different reason.

    I think I have to vote for Astronuc 'cause love should be measured in Scoville units.

    Before giving my vote, I'd like to request an explanation by the photographer as to what the sock(?) in SpaceTigger's submission is supposed to represent, artistically speaking.

    If no response is provided before the deadline, then please count my vote towards turbo.

    Sorry, I can only count the votes that were actually cast before the deadline. I can't count those that were not, even via "proxy" like this.

    OK.

    So, is that infact a sock in his picture?

    Yes, it is symbolic of ST's middle years as an out of the closet peeping Tom. This picture was taken around the time he was stocking his valentine.

    Aww...thanks to whomever gave me a pity vote. :smile: I wouldn't have even bothered with that entry if I knew so many better ones were going to follow after mine (I thought I might have a chance for 3rd place when there were only 3 of us in the contest :biggrin:).

    To me, the photo is depicting a contrast between the neat and comfortable commercial image of Valentine's Day and the raw animal drives that provide its foundation. However, art is not supposed to have a single interpretation. If the photo speaks to you in some way, any way, then vote for it. Otherwise, vote for one that does...or, failing that, the prettiest picture.
