    Ok so I bought a flash template and ONE of these guys can't make the cut because each page can only hold 10 photos. VOTE FOR THE WORST ONE! (oh ps this is for my urbanish/landscape gallery. I divided it into 3 sections - Landscapes (which are pure nature) - Urban (which are urban shots or urban landscapes) - People (obv)

    To me the first stood out - not only was it the shot I felt that I liked least from your selection, but it also had a very strong different look to it than the rest. Of course one wishes to show variety, but part of professional work is having a "look" or style that the buyer is looking to get - so having a more select appearance to your portfolio is no bad thing

    Well, I agree with overread, the first is different, but also is nice, in matter of fact they're all brilliant! But the picture that isn't interesting as the others is #6, I don't say it's not nice, but it's not good as the others

    I voted to get rid of 1,4,7,8 and 11

    #1 in the set, its the odd man out. A nice capture, but doesnt go with the rest

    #4 the colours are sublime, but I'm not liking the angle of this shot

    #7 nice and moody, but its too tilted and the sky looks a bit odd

    #8 I dont like the emptyness of the foreground, it should have some light streaks in it. It is what draws my eye, more than the streaks or the Arc

    #11 same as #1 in that its a nice image, but I find the lack of colour makes it stand out in a different way. I'd still use this image, but maybe not with the others in the same gallery

    On the positive side, they are all excellent captures.
    #9 is phenomenal, I love it!
    #5 is also a great picture
