What a hard decision! We had so many neat entries representing fabulous people who were local, as well as several different states, and even some international entries! It takes a lot of courage to enter, and I just want to thank everyone who crossed over the comfort zone and put themselves out there! You’re awesome! Keep shooting!!!
I requested that people send their most “compelling” image. To me, I find something compelling that evokes some type of emotion from a viewer. And certainly, what I find compelling may be different from someone else. But I felt that these images certainly had the “compelling” factor!
I really struggled narrowing it down to five, so I put one extra image in the mix. Here are our final 6 picks. All very different from one another, and hard to judge against each other. I know its not comparing apples to apples in any of the entries or finalists. Maybe if I ever do this again I’d pick a theme for the images to be more on level playing ground. We live and learn!
But for now…
Which image do you find the most compelling?
Title: Electric Love
Title: Another Day in Africa
Title: Heart Break at the Track Meet
Title: Daddy’s Girl
Title: A Kiss in the Stairwell
Title: All Bundled Up

oh man I totally forgot to enter! whoops! 🙂 Great pictures!
Wonderful pictures and congrats to all of the finalists – how exciting!
Awesome – nice use of detail in a soft way
So exciting! Loved the 6 you selected. I voted for #2! So sweet!
each image really pulled me in, one way or another… what a difficult choice
They are all so nice. I really like the emotion of picture 2, yet the color, clarity, and eyes of number 6 are awesome as well! Good luck choosing! The winner will be very, very lucky!
they are all great but I LOOOOOVE the emotion in #3, the sheer emotional power that that photo has is incredible! I also love #6, but I don’t think they need photography classes, it’s so pro.
