Help Required

So this is an emergency post. Last week I posted about a charity calender competition for Epilepsy Ireland which I am submitting images for. The maximum allowed is 3 images per entry and I am having serious issues choosing. After narrowing down some of my favourite shots taken this year, I am still left with thirteen images to choose from. So here is what I was thinking of, and I hope that you will help me. Below you will find all thirteen images and I would really appreciate if you could vote for your favourite image or images, up to a maximum of three. The top three voted images will be submitted for the competition, and we shall wait and see what happens. So thank you in advance for your help, I really appreciated it.

    Do the images for the competition have to relate to some particular month? I voted with that in mind, anyway.

    Ed, I originally followed your Blog after seeing the warrior overlooking the battle scene. but then I’m no photo editor – I just liked the story behind the photo. #12 is the pick for me- among a bunch of great shots

    I chose 2, 9 and 10. My gut said some of the others could be lighter so better separate the subject and the background. But saying that I mostly do macro’s so not sure if I am that qualified.

    • Thanks Kathy, They have been there for a couple of hundred years. Said to be the prints of Donnelly himself and have survived by people walking in them all the time. Im just waiting for a good snow, it should make for an interesting shot 🙂

    After I voted I saw that two of my choices were in the top two although I originally had checked Ballinafagh first and then replaced it with the Black Castle. It was difficult choosing just three. I hope this helps Ed ! Great work !

  38. Ever since I was little I have had a fascination with castle architecture, there is something about them that gives off an aura of beauty and power. I suppose voting for 3, 4 and 12 with that information would seem fairly obvious, however I did find it a somewhat difficult choice as many of the photos are fantastic in their own right, especially the more I looked at #1. The more I studied it, the more I found myself wanting to put it in the mix. Unfortunately, my bias for castles kicked in and I stuck with 3,4 and 12, but all the shots were phenomenal. Great work!
