Hey All! I'm entering a photo contest, and I can't seem to narrow it down enough. Care to let me know which is your favorite?

Ryan,
Glad to see you cropped them, that was going to be my first suggestion. Beyond that, I like photo 5, but it's just too bad the eagle is so dark in it. You might consider finding someone who has very good knowledge of photo editing and see if they can lighten the eagle without bleaching out the rest of the picture. Good luck!

I agree with Dave. Anytime you can get a picture with the horizon line or some sort of scenery it becomes more interesting. I found when taking pictures and videos of hang gliders the ones with something other than just blue sky were more interesting. JMHO..

I like #2 myself. I dont know why probably because of the majestic look of it owning the world.That and you can see the tone of its muscle. But as a contest photo it probably wouldnt hold up.But I still like it better then the rest. JMO

Not sure what you mean here, but most photo contests have a rule against photoshop. You can crop the pic but they generally require the full size version (original) as well to verify there has been no tampering.

Thanks for the help guys. My computer crashed, and I lost all my photos. Didn't get to submit anything. Glad I have quite a few of my favorites spread out on the forum!

Ryan you can get the photos off of that hard drive. You'll just need to take it to the right technician with the right programs set up for that.
