Decisions, decisions - Part III

Somedays this picture perfectly depicts my mood -
Leave me alone and just let me sit in the corner by myself!

This one just makes me smile -
How can you not love that face?!

I just want to take a bath every time I see this one!

Some one sure is having fun!

This one is titled "hidden dragon"
He is so intense - he was stalking a woman on the other side of his enclosure.

I love the texture and colors in this one.

I bit the bullet and submitted my entries into the contest today.  Wish me luck and hopefully by the end of the month I can bill myself as an 'award' winning photographer!

Decisions, decisions - Part II

Today's theme seems to be following MEF's post for today - 
I love this picture from our honeymoon in Mexico.

This one was from our honeymoon too!
I could live in this hotel f-o-r-e-v-e-r!

This one proves that you should always carry a camera - 
you never know when you will see something that you love!

Hello texture!  

I love the light and the gorgeous detail in the rotunda dome.
Can you guess the location?

No guessing games on this one - Where else can you travel the world on one street?
Vegas Baby!

These are some more of my options for the Photo Contest.  
I found today that I can enter more than one, so my decisions are a little easier -
not much, but a little bit easier!

Decisions, decisions

Is this the one?

Or how about this one?

Another option?

My employer loves holding contests.  Build a kite, decorate an easter bonnet, carve a pumpkin.  All kinds of contests that you can enter to win a prize.  Most of the time, I read the notices and move on with my day.  But the latest contest caught my attention.  It is a photo contest!  

For the girl with 20,000+ photos, this should be easy-peasy, rice and cheesey, right? NOT!  The first criteria - the photo can NOT be of a person.  That does eliminate oodles of pics but still leaves me with too many 'favorites' to choose from.

These are some of my final picks that I have since eliminated from consideration.  I guess you could call this my Spring collection.  Stayed tuned for more options that I discarded and to see which one made the final cut.  Oh, and wish me luck - I really need to win this one to gvie me the boost of confidence that I need!
