Contest Photos

**EDIT**

The photos are JUST too wide to be seen fully. Sorry. But the link in the beginning works!

**End edit**

Here's where I need your help guys.

Below are all the photos I'm thinking of entering into the contest. I need to cut these down to a group of 10 and a group of 5. Leave comments on which you like best.

Here's the link to the set of contest photos in Zooomr.

But I know I wanted more photos in my posts anyway, so...

haha 5364 is from Treman isn't it?

duffield ceiling windows remind me of mitochondria ><

need more focused people photos (ie. 1-2 persons), imho. my eyes got tired from lines...

nice shots! i didn't find the ones of hallways with no people particularly fascinating. maybe its because the hallways remind me of philips hall at 4 am.

in my opinion the group photos are less "artistic" and evoking. i find candids of people are interesting.

so i guess i narrowed it down to like 50 :p

those are all amazing. I agree with hainlee; the ones that are just hallways with no people are somewhat less interesting. some of the ones of illuminations performances are cool if you know the people in them (which is clearly a reason you chose them :)), but are less interesting for a nonpartial judge. however, the way the geometry lines up in 2971 is eye-catching. 3581 and 4290 are interesting because of the people; 4290 has the interesting angle going for it, too.

the pictures of pieces of buldings are quite captivating, i think. esp. 4295, 6169, 5642(i didn't like this one much at first until i noticed the empire state building on the edge. that makes it really neat.), 4007, 5634, 6288(the play on the focus depth is really interesting), 6285(this is rather plain and monochromatic, but if clean lines and simplicity are what you're going for, this is a good one).

the close-up shots of things that aren't immediately identifiable are also interesting; 2470 and 2752 caught my eye right away. also, 2550, 2990, 2047(not a close up, but the way the spotlights are softened and the stage slighly out of focus, it catches the eye.).

i also think candids of people are interesting, 2258 especially.

also, 2356 doesn't fit in any of my previous categories, but it's quite striking. i've always liked symmetry and lake reflections, and it seems to be something a lot of people like.

hope this helps! it was a lot more fun than doing my stats homework. :)

Hm... I don't know if I can come up with however many you want, but I'm shying away from the empty hallways and the waterfalls. They're good pictures, but they don't really stand out.

My favourite is 2550 (with the ring). I like texture and shadows in the picture. I also really like 2732 for the contrast, and on top of that, you can see Venus (?) in the sky as well. 3581 is good too, because the people have separated themselves into the forwards- and backwards-going sides. I also really like 3146... you somehow managed to catch two very instantaneous moments at the same time (unless the flash is a reflection of your own)...
