need help selecting three images from ten

I need some help selecting three images to submit to my local camera club for our annual show. I've narrowed down my candidates to 10 images from the past 12 months, but I could use some help narrowing down the selection to the final three.

One that I'm pretty sure I'll include is the one with the ferry boat and the guy looking at the camera. So, I guess, I need two more entries.

Your thoughts are appreciated!

I would go with these two images if you're including the ferry boat image.
And I really like image #5.

4, 6, and 10, are the stand-out images for me. The others don't really engage me.

Do you want to mix b&w and colour?

I'd go all b&w, since you want to include on b&w shot already. I like the two before of that one, so a set of # 5,6,7.

I will add that I don't know anything about your town or what you want to say about it.

Well, you have some.
Which one to chose...
It depends how primitive those in camera club are.
You know them better.
Four and six for me, if I counted right.
Handless guy on last one...

Thanks for your input, everyone. There's definitely some clear favorites.

To Ko.Fe's point, "it depends how primitive those in the camera club are". In the past, landscapes, studio portraits, macro, dominated the selections, mostly in color.

1) baseball kid is a strong image; consider loosing the fake sepia and going with straight b&w.
2) head in the bushes
3) people looking at painting

As a matter of fact the baseball kid image is color on expired ultramax, but I did crank up the saturation of the sunset and I can see how it could work in bw, I'm just not accustomed to converting color to bw so I don't trust my skills on that front.

Thanks again to all for the suggestion.

4,5 and 6,

I'm not keen on the composition of 1
I'm not sure of the subject of 2 and my eye darts around and the church looks a bit over exposed.
3 is a bit boring and would need to be perfectly symmetrical to be less so.

The rest are ok.

4 and 6 are very good in my opinion.
Pete
