feedback needed!

In case I haven't mentioned this before, photography is one of my main projects in 4-H. Every year I select the best of all the pictures I've taken and have them professionally printed and mounted for competition at county, state, and once even national levels. But there's always one part about all this that I hate. . . .

. . . And it's the part where I have to whittle several thousand pictures down to a couple dozen.

And this year, I think I have more than just several thousand to go through.

I have no idea where to start.

So . . . would anybody like to help me out? Have you found a photo somewhere in my blog posts that you think I should enter? I would truly appreciate your suggestions! Leave a link or a description in a comment for me and I'll check it out! Thank you so much! The county fair isn't until August, but I wanted to get a head start on all my printing and mounting this year. :)

And just for you: my latest of majestic Mt. Adams, taken this evening from the window right beside where I sit at the computer desk. God knows exactly how to take my breath away.


  1. I immediately thought of the Mt. Hood with bachelor buttons in the foreground from your landscape page. It's one of my most very favorites (as opposed to my very, very favorites, my very favorites or my favorites). Which picture went to nationals?

  2. You are the Grand winner in my Photo contest Hallie Jo! Come on over and please leave your shipping address so I can send off your prize!

  3. good GRIEF that is a tough assignment! Bur right off the top of my head...I love that picture of the frozen spiderweb with the horse in the background...and the dandelions in the field picture that you put up a few weeks ago. And I love your macro work...and I feel like Lenny needs a moment of fame too. :)
    Oh and there's one of a double rainbow over a shed that's absolutely stunning...
    I could go on and on... :)

  4. Can I steal that Mt. Adams picture for my desktop? It is awesome.

  5. RE Suze: I actually entered the Mt. Hood one last year, so I can't do it again, but I'm glad you like it! The photo that went to nationals was this one:

    RE Johanna: Thank you!!!!

    RE Laura: Great ideas! The one of the spider web is one that I entered last year, too, but all the others are possibilities, so I'll go through and pick some out.

    RE Tim: Thanks! I'm glad you like it. :)

    Thank you all for the input so far ... I need all I can get! :)

  6. Okay--I also really like the hummingbird picture on the May 17th post. He's looking very thoughtful. Since hummingbirds are very evil tempered birds, it is probably a good thing that we can't know what it is he's thinking...... I don't think he's thanking you for the nectar =)

  7. I especially liked the last 5 photos you posted on this post!
