I need your help! Here's the deal. I'm entering a photo contest. I do realize that I am not the greatest photographer that ever was. I realize I'm not even a good photographer. I don't even have a good camera! I've got a SONY Cyber-Shot and pretty much do the "point and shoot" thing.

In any case, I'd like to enter this photo contest just to see what happens. There are two categories: Babies and all other photos. I need you to tell me which "baby" photo and which "other" photo you like best.

Here are my baby photos for your selection:
1. Sweet Dreams
2. Talk Baby to Me

3. You Are My Sunshine

4. Daddy's Girl

5. Strike a Pose

Here are my "other" photos:

6. In Bloom

7. Serenity

8. Deep Thoughts

9. Acrobat

10. Tear Drops

11. Freedom

12. Solitude

13. Peacefulness

14. Early Morning Mist

15. Day Break

16. Stream

17. Clouds

Daddy's Girl.
Can I wish you a Happy Fourth?
You are somewhere outside of Northern WI, right.

Sweet dreams is just impossibly sweet. Also like the meditating kitten. Have a great weekend.

Karen MEG said...

Gahhh, those are all spectacular, C.

But for baby, it has to be Sweet Dreams, OMG, how incredibly precious!

Other, I love teardrop, solitude, daybreak... uh, you're just really, really good at this, girlfriend !

Good luck with the contest!

(That was me who just deleted a post - it had a grammatical error in it! GASP!)
Anyway, I was saying that all the photos are great. You have a very artistic eye. You, K and I should go on a photo expedition when she visits next week!!

I think they are all great, but Sweet Dreams and Tear Drop get my votes.

Good morning from Athens,
as it is close to four in the morning and the kid is waking up way tooooo often would like to choose the 'sweet dream' one and the tear photo, eventhough I rather see a tube which is able to let water flow upwards and it just went over...providing life.

C said...

Tee hee! I was going to wish you guys a Happy 4th, but was out ALL day at the parade AND the fish fry. By the time we got home, it was around 7:30 and Little One and I passed out and didn't get up until around 8 this morning!

Hope you had a great 4th of July!

Word ver= caratur
"Yer such a caratur!" LOL!

C said...

Thank you for your choices :) Any idea how to make a graph to show which photos were the post popular? Y'know how technologically challenged I am! ;)

Hope you had a fantastic 4th of July!

C said...

Awww, thanks! Not bad for a non-photographer with a point and shoot camera, I suppose :)

Hope you guys are enjoying the sun and warm weather!! It's been a great weekend on the Island :) I am suffering from a massive sunburn though!

C said...

Thanks for your input :) I'll let you know how the contest goes.
Didn't those camping photos totally bring back fun/funny memories?! :)

Barbara said...

Love all your pics but I adore Sweet Dreams and Serenity.

Good luck with the contest.


louann said...

My votes are for 1 and either 8 or 13.. looking forward to getting together when we get back to the island!


Jackie said...

# 1, 5 , 6, 8 and all others, you are totally amazing!
Hey,we should really meet sometime.... i understand you sometimes visit my hubby=) At the garage, or when you break down in front of the grocery store.

love love love the photos

C said...

Thank you! Now all I have to do is figure out how to make a graph to show which the most popular pics are! :)

C said...

Thank you!! By the way, we need to get together soon! It was nice seeing you at the Canada Day festivities! Weren't those burgers deeeelish!?!? I was soooo hungry!

I ended up with the worst sunburn ever though! Did you end up getting fried too?

Chat sometime this week :) I may need you to play with LO so I can get some stuff done, if that's okay.

C said...

Thank you! Those seem to be popular pics! I hope I win something :) I'm entering just for fun, but actually winning a prize would be great too! LOL!

Jackie said...

Hey! good to chat with you. I plan to do etsy in the fall when both munchkins are in school. I want to get to a farmers' market, but weekends and family and summer seem to take precedence. Anyway, if you want a belt,I can make one, they vary anyway, due to waist size.
did you decide on pics yet?

J at said...

I like 1 and 14 best. :) Good luck, your pictures are beautiful!

C said...

Thank you everyone! :) I've just submitted the two photos! I'll let you know how things go!


Tracy said...

1, 6, 10, 13, 15 are my favorites. You're a really good photographer with an artistic eye! Good for you for entering a contest!

merinz said...

Sweet Dreams and daybreak are my two picks.
(I am finally online again - we have had a rather prolonged internet access problem)

Jinxy said...

I don't know if its too late or not but I can't decided between #1 and 4. They are all so very good.

Good luck, I can't wait to hear how it went.
