With the deadline for RFF book 2 nearing, I'm still in doubt which photos to use. I've narrowed things down to only R-D1 shots but still I have nearly a dozen from which to choose.

Now, choosing between my own shots isn't my strongest point, so can you help me? For book 1 y'all gave me great advice and pointed me in directions I hadn't considered myself. I hope y'all will do the same this time.

The candidates are here (http://shardsofphotography2.blogspot.com/), in my new photo portfolio blog.

Don't let me down! :)

I'd say the first two photos (the abstraction of the stairway and the first train pic) are by far the best, and the best suited for sitting in a book.

They have a lot of visual impact, and a great deal of feeling is evoked by them. Also, the two pictures have just enough in common in terms of light and shape to sit well next to each other on two pages...at the same time they are different enought to comprise a good representation of you as a photographer.

10 and 2 for me - so diverse, but linked by quality of light - but none would be out of place.

Regards

I'm taking notes here, people. Let it coming. :)

So far nr 2 is leading the pack quite clearly. I guess that one is going to be in.
It's followed by nrs 1, 7, 9 and 10, all with equal votes. Dang! :p

I've added a poll to make it easier. :)

I would pick 2 and 10. I do like the quality of the light(as Gid says) in these two particularly. And the wake of the oarsmen(scullers?) is appealing to me.

I voted for 6 and 9.

I really like that Red Cat!

Err 8 and nine, just like the atmosphear really. Nine is the better though.

Aah, the fog seems to be clearing. :) I can see nr 9 appearing, followed by nr 1, I think...

2 and 8, definitely. Love the green on 8, but the reflection on the train and the bright, vibrant contrast in 2 are excellent.

It seems 2 and 9 are the finalists.

Damn! Why do you guys never select the photos that I was thinking about?! :p

Three and ten. (Wel, I like most of them!) I see the attraction of two - the shimmering light on the side of the train is wonderful, but three is the braver composition. Ten is zen...

I liked the rowing best

I love the first picture. To me this is what great rangefinder photography is all about. I also really like the last picture because it's a shot that I'd typically associate with an SLR or MF "landscape" camera but clearly RFs are just as good at this kind of subject matter.

My Canadian 2 cents,

#3 is definitely my favorite; the intense but simple colors and the spacial trickery really stirs the visual perception. I also like two other architectural ones, #1 and #4, and so the problem is picking between them. #4 has similar richness of color and is more interesting than #1 spacially, but #1 has its own richness and secrets.

2 and 5 for me...

I liked #1 (the abstract light in the stairway is awesome) and #8 (love the green and the great light).

#2 and #9. There is enough diversity between these shots to showcase your photographs and the RD-1, which I think is great.
