    Please tell me which three you think are the best ones for me to enter into a contest about coastal photographs.

    Thanks!

    #1 For sure!

    I like #9, but maybe cropped to feature the tower?

        1 - Clearest pic but I'm not sure how it fits the theme, it shows the view from the inside of a cave

        2 - I like the contrast between the setting sun and shadowy lamp post and fence, and its almost melancholy (maybe I'm looking at it from the wrong angle of my laptop monitor lol)

        4 - Can be used for one of those vacation ads showing a warm sunset right at the center with an extra element of a boat breaking through the rays on the water.

        8 - Nice clear shot of the coastline, several elements, sloping land and architecture on the right, moving water on the left, people, small (is that a) lifeguard shack off center. Light conveniently coming from the left. Maybe crop the pic so we dont see that white fence (triangle shape) at the bottom. It's distracting. If you remove it, I can imagine it in a cover of a landscape magazine.

        9 - I like this because it shows a cooler side of the coast opposite to #4 but I don't see any interesting element, there's a shack in the middle but it's not lighted or colored red to stand out.

        The shots are great, for some reason I can visualize them in an ad of some topic or another. These are just my humble preferences. =)

        --------------
        First place: #8 cropped to remove that white fence at the bottom
        Second place: #2
        Third place: #4

              1, 8 and 9.

              I kinda like the tower being off center.

                  By cropping, I mean reduce the surrounding background...not that the tower should be center.

                    Thanks for your input and votes so far. I'm bummed I can't get my personal favorite into my signature file to share, so I'll post it here and you can tell me what you think of it as compared to the ones you've voted on.

                    Thanks everyone!!!

                      Yah, but I think there's something about it, just the way it is. If anything, maybe a tad off the top.

                        Oh, wow. You my dear are an awesome photographer. I loved 1, 8 and 9 as well. I love sunset photos, but those three just really looked awesome. 10 and your sig pics would be excellent candidates as alternates though.

                            #1 should have gotten the whole top of the cave

                            #2 Lower right looks bad

                            #3 Top right, that stupid bird makes it looks bad

                            #4 I like

                            #5 It looks to simple

                            #6 Not bad

                            #7 I like

                            #8 I like

                            #9 Maybe you could have changed your angle, The yellow sign doesnt look right in the pic

                            #10 The lady on the beach, If she wasnt there it would have looked better.

                            #11 Not bad at all

                            Thats just my .02, i was trying to be honest. Im no pic pro but thats my opinion

                              I think the last picture is gorgeous, but to me it doesn't look as clear as the others, especially the rocks or kelp or whatever at the bottom. (I guess the darkness has something to do with that, rather than your photography.) It's also just another view of the horizon with nothing particular of interest (not saying the sunset isn't beautiful) and not as much of a variety of colors.

                              Truthfully, I think the 1st one is the most unique and interesting. Was it taken in Laguna? All of them are wonderful though, and I'm sure you'll have a good chance with whatever you choose. Best of luck.
