i'm entering a photo contest ... in fact the image is due within the hour. the subject on the contest is vintage los angeles signs ... (los angeles county - so i chose long beach). i'm happy with a few of the images i got, but now i'm having trouble picking the one that should go in the contest ... and a little about the contest ... i'm ot entering a contest to win or even compete actually - i'm just curious to see what my pictures look like next to the other entries ... do i suck? do i use to much saturation? how do i stack up?
if anyone is reading this between 4-5:00 PM pacific time today, monday, june 13, 2011 - tell me which image i should submit to the contest please!

i am thinking about entering a photo contest. i am not 100% sure why. i don't want to "win" anything nor do i really want to compete, but i guess i'm curious about how my photos look with the others that enter ... you know? to see if mine stand up to the others. the contest that interests me is one on perspective ... the sample image for the contest was a giant building with a jogger running by so you could see how giant the building is. i shot 2 of the 3 pictures above with that in mind, as that agave is HUGE! but i don't think they are too successful ... just be warned, there will be more pictures of that blooming agave ...
