    I'm planning on entering a photo contest. It's basically a cheesy mall one, but if I do well enough I could win some cash.... not a lot, but enough to help buy my crossover steering. Anyhow, I was hoping for some input from you guys... like what looks good and what you think works best. Here's the categories:

    1. Scenic pictorial (color)
    2. Scenic pictorial (black & white)
    3. Portraits (people only) (color)
    4. Portraits (people only) (black & white)
    5. Open (color)
    6. Open (black & white)
    7. Sports

    Anyhow, here's what I got (page is slow to load)....
    (scans are not the best and resolution is low due to space on my site)

    http://chevycagal.homestead.com/MyPics.html

    If you put your cursor over a pic, a number will show up so if you like number such and such, you can just say that instead of trying to describe the pics.

    I can make any of the pics into black & white for those categories in black & white easily. I can enter up too two pics per category. Anyhow... I'm just looking for opinions, and would appreciate yours. Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If its scenery you want color. But for anything else, you gotta go black and white. My friend is big into black/white photography and EVERYTHING she takes pictures of are great. They look like they should be in a magazine or something.

    Just looked at your webpage... wow, they're all excellent. I personally liked the river scene 5th down on the right column and i like the racing buggies. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Wow! All are great! Had a hard time picking a few. All are good....The flowers I couldn't make up my mind between #8, #23 and #35.....A white tiger will always get my vote #33....and I've always liked old fences, barns and covered bridges (Do you have any covered bridges out your way?) so I also picked #16 and #34 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
