    I like #1 and #4. If you can crop in tighter on #1, that would be my choice. Else it's #4.

    I would like to see #1 larger. Otherwise, its #4 for me, its got the best contrast. #2 is hazy, but the foliage is beautiful. If that one was a bit clearer, I might choose that one, but you can't see the bridge that well. Overall, they are all very good.

    #3 and #4 are fine, but #6 works best for me in terms of composition and subject matter.

    If there weren't these funny things going on in Photo 2 (foggy pic, no contrasts), that one would be my pick. I know that of the intended subject there is only little to be seen, really, but I do like the fact that the many branches and leaves surround what is the subject with a bit of mystery. But something is not right about saturation and sharpness. Both too strong along with too week contrasts and depth (not "of field"!) ... I don't quite understand what it is that went wrong... Was it maybe rescued in PS from an all underexposed photo?

    Well this should show IMO, that what you sometimes like and think is good , is not always a winner,,, As I said , I sent around 50 shots in a submission, and granted not all are great, but you want different looks also..

    As with Magazines, luck and timing are sometimes everything...

    Ok enough, hear ya ya go. IF YOU PICKED #3.... YOU GOT IT!

    Now they will without doubt enhance this photo, but I still feel not seeing the entire bridge/ the tree on right/ the hot area under bridge ( support/ and virtually no sky, would shoot this pic right off the desk...

    so again, this is a type filler shot, not great , but what they wanted.. perhaps it was this bridge's location, town???

    Thanks folks..
