    The first one is my favorite, would have preferred if there were no people in the background but oh well.
    What's in the glasses though? Tea?
    I like the steam and the color of the drinks, I would crop the sides off a bit, they don't really do much for the photo.
    Anyways, it deserves all the recognition and awards it has gotten, great job :)

    P.S.: If Gators = UF: Gators suck, it's all about the U. If it's not those Gators, then...ignore that. :D

    hehe thanks, yeah that picture was a bit of a chance thing. I was taking pictures of something else and the teacups caught my eye. It was my grandmothers birthday (yes, it's hot tea in the glasses btw) and I didnt feel like asking everybody to clear out of the way haha. And yeah I would crop it, but I want to leave the teacup in the middle, and if the picture becomes to square it doesn't look as good when its mounted in the competition frames :/

    but thanks!! :)

    and gators is my swim team :thumbup:

    the first and thrid are my favorites. :D i think the steam from the tea was captured very well and the people in the background really added character!! ^_^ and the third well i just like the colors of dusk and lights... :)

    I like these images.

    I would definitely like 1 much better on a clean background, but other than that I love the steam.

    2,3,4 I really like. I'm not typically a fan of car pictures, probably because I'm just jealous, but I like these, especially the colors on #2

    Thanks for all the feedback and advice! Here are 2 more I dug up..

    7) "Snow"
    [​IMG]

    8) "Strange Plumbing"
    [​IMG]
    (I realize this would have benefitted from a larger aperture value, but it was with my old canon and I couldn't get a fast enough shutter without an overwhelming amount of noise)
