    Voting closes on May 12.

    We had 20 entries (1 disqualification). Well done, people! The entries are separated into 2 groups according to when they were submitted. You may vote once for EACH group. Top vote getters (to be decided later) will have a run-off in the final voting.

    It's impossible! I think I need to print them out, make paper airplanes, and the one that goes furthest wins. :biggrin:

    hypatia's picture reminds me of the movie "The Brave Little Toaster", so for emotional reasons, that would be my choice if a gun were held to my head.

    My first impression is to go for the mist one... I also like the street one... I'll pick the mist one...

    Should've found a better pic of the 'Dam :smile:

    Actually, who lives on a misty lake with ducks... Perhaps I'll go for the street...

    btw: mine was taken from my front window :tongue:

    Wow, I received a vote! I feel very flattered. Thanks whoever gifted me with it. Myself, I think my photo is bad, it's really bad. I hope I'll get better for next contests

    That was one hell of a tough choice, and I assume that Part II will be as well. I had to go with the one which I'd most like to have blown up and framed on my wall, which is MK's.

    I voted for ZapperZ's photo. It was between his photo and the ducks, but I thought the ducks lacked anything interesting to them. I like Zz's photo because of the lines. Look at it, everywhere there are lines. Verticle lines for the buildings, light posts, trees, the sculpture. Horizontal lines, the side walk, the row of trees that extend straight back, the rows of boats lined up. I also think it is interesting that your eyes are not drawn to the sculpture in the picture, your eyes are first drawn to the left corner where the rows of skyscrapers meet (that building with the angled black roof). Its funny, because I am so fixed to see what's going on with those skyscrapers in the background that I would be totaly oblivious to a person walking by me nude on that sidewalk 2 feet away.

    I like Mk's, and Gokul's best. I dunno, but for some really really weird reason, I love sunset... :!!) And it's damn hard to choose only 1 between the 2. :cry:
    Can we just have multiple choices for the next vote?
