Re: Vote for the 2011 Photograph of the Year: Final Round

definitely some great photos here! Still kind of surprised of a few of the ones that didn't make it in (and at a couple of the ones that did).

Art contests like this are hardest for Judges, I think.

Re: Vote for the 2011 Photograph of the Year: Final Round

Kudos to those who entered; congrats to those who made it this far; and mega congrats to those that win some sort of prize. This was a very tough decision. For me, this has been the toughtest vote since I've been a member. And each year is difficult.

It was extremely difficult to narrow my vote down to a single photo. They are all exceptionally good.

Hard to choose! wondering what condition the adult had in the Guardian Hands photo; those black nails should be indicative of something=sweet photo though.

Re: Vote for the 2011 Photograph of the Year: Final Round

OK my vote is in. Hard to choose between three or four of this quality, but when there are this many it is definitely a challenge.

Well done to all who got this far!
