    G'Day
    My pal and I have a bet to see who can take the better shot. I have included 8 pictures straight out of the camera. No editing. These are his rules this time. I can only submit 1 and am looking for your help. Please pick the one you like best. I know the one I like but want others input. Thanks and I will post the edited photos when the competition is over.

    Would be easier if they were bigger. I say 4.

    However, who and how are they judging... what's the criteria? Is it based on technical aspects of the shot - focus, exposure, lighting, etc. Or composition based?

    One of the local photographers and his staff have agreed to judge the photos. The rules were, straight out of the camera, no post processing of any kind. I'll leave the rest to the judges to figure it out. Thanks for the votes. Keep them coming.

    I'd say 3, and when your ready to do some PP on it, I would slightly tilt the image to give it a more stunning look. But that's just my .02! :D Picture 2 is a very close winner as well.

    CORNDOG, how would you tilt it? So the background is straight? Go ahead and post an edited pic of it if you wish. Thanks
