There is a photo competition that I will be entering in about a week or so, and there is really no theme to the competition all I have to do is enter 5 of my best pieces.
Now I have chosen 7 photos and I really need help trying to figure out which ones I should pick. Make sure to comment on which ones you think I should pick. P.S. Sorry for so many links!

Wow, really cool shots.

I'd say get rid of "Sunk" (easily the worst IMO) and "Plane" (photoshopping is obvious, not as unique/elegant as the others).

Great shots. I personally really like Tree. I do agree that you shouldn't use Sunk in the contest.

I would actually go for Sunk. Capital seems to be the most polished, but at the same time, I feel like I've seen that type of photo a lot.

I definitely wouldn't do Plane, as Pooks says.

My second choice would either be Singer (there is some neat stuff happening in that picture) or Capital (it does have a nice feeling to it).


Edit: Whoops, you're trying to eliminate 2, not choose 2. I would get rid of Plane and Tree. Tree's background clouds bore me.

My choice is for Singer, but I'm biased. \m/

I also think Singer is easily the strongest photo in the bunch. Sunk and Plane are the two I would lose first. Sunk feels really over-processed to me, which isn't going to go over well with many photo judges, though the composition is still quite nice. Plane is less striking than most of the other options. Nise work in general, though.

Also, since this is directly photography related, I've moved it to the Photography forum.
