    Hey guys- I went on vacation the past week to a little place called Jeffreysbay on the east coast of south africa. Got a few pics, will show more later on, but for now i need to choose one of these pics for a competition the local paper is running on- you guessed it- Vacation photos. What do you think?

    1. Waves crashing. This is also my new desktop: Low POV waves crashing... blah blah

    2.Fake sunrise, (actually the moon) EDIT My least favourite, should not have put this one up. Colours are off. The more i look at it-the more i dislike it. Only keeping it on as a request from my girlfriend.

    3.In the middle

    4. Real Sunrise. It was cloudy- no real sunrise, got the reflection of the clouds though.

    5. Fun on the beach. I like this photo it looks like 'vacation' to me. Note- i know my shadow is in the picture, was a spur of the moment photo- amateur error never the less. Will try and PS it out.

    6. Surf's up!

    I really like photo 3 but for a 'vacation picture' competition I'd be inclined to submit the last one.

    I really like #5. I guess if you are going for a vacation feel then I would go with well................#5. Looks like a mother/daughter on vacation having a good time!!!!

    #6 I think... should be the one that should be submitted even though I like #3 the best.
