I think I like #3.

I just sent my prints off to the lab today.... having them drop-shipped in NH, so I won't even see them until I open the case in NH! Yikes! Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?

I was staring at the final ordering screen from my lab and after about 5 minutes of staring I finally went "whatever... it is what it is!" and hit submit. Yikes. We'll see how it goes. :D

Squint your eyes almost closed while looking at your prints one at a time. If you see what you deem focal point of the subject first, perfect! If not, manipulate your image until it happens. Turn the image upside down to give you a new perspective.

IMHO #3 is the strongest. #2 would stand a better chance but it is overexposed.

Cheers!

John -- Just wondering what leads to the conclusion that the "peony" is overexposed. Does it appear too saturated? That is something I could pull back on.
Heather -- I woke up this morning realizing that nhppa was a week from today. I have no idea how it snuck up on me - i had in my head that i add two weeks left. oops! will be making final decision today.
