    A local contest will allow me to enter one photo for each category. All of these are in the same "category". Do any of them strike you as you view them? Which is your favorite?

    Thanks for any input. I may be able to go back for more.

    EDIT TO ADD: UPDATE - Post#19 below. These images didn't "get in" but two different ones did.

    All decent. I think the #2 prarie dog photo would do best in a contest though. Cute subject interaction is sure to sway the judges. :thumbup:

    Thanks, I REALLY appreciate your responses! :)
    So far it's kind of going how I thought - a split between the Leopard and #2.

    If anyone has any title suggestions, feel free to shout them out.

    For #2 I have thought a little bit, maybe too cheezy though...
    - Tender Affection
    - The comfort of family
    - Friends
    - A Kind Gesture

    Still thinking...

    #2 - I got your back - or - do you see what I see

    I like #2 the most in regards to the prarie dogs.

    I like the leopard, even though his eyes are focused on something other than the camera.

    Is the leopard a cropped shot?

    Leopard looks incredible but somewhat... i dunno, doesn't look perfect... Prairie Dogs #2 would get my noob vote as well. Rare nature moment captured is always a winner :)

    Good suggestions.

    Yes, the leopard is cropped.Where he was and with the crowds I wasn't able to get the whole body, so without the crop it looked odd.

    Thanks everyone for taking part and giving your input! This is fun!

    Arkanjel Imaging: "wow, your hair smells really nice" that's funny! I like it!
