Urban Photo Safari 2011

So today I participated in the Urban Photo Safari for the first time. A tip o' the hat to my Little Buddy "The_D_Rules" for letting me know about this.

It worked like this. We showed up at Mildred's in the Cross Roads to register at 9am. We had until 1pm to take as many photos as we wanted. We returned at 1pm to have all of our photos downloaded. We have until Monday at 11pm to let the organizers know which 10 photos we want to submit for voting. In addition to the 10, we also need to submit a self portrait. We can also submit extra photos in the categories of "Collision", "Invade" and "Illuminate".

I took 65 photos. I have culled those down to a self portrait, 2 Collision photos, and 15 possible submissions. Although the photos had to be submitted "as is", right off the camera, I have 2 ex-wives and numerous ex-girlfriends who will vouch for the fact that I am incapable of leaving well enough alone. So I have included both the raw and photo shopped versions for your enjoyment and judgement.

I would be most appreciative if you would vote in the comments and let me know which ones you like and don't like.

Here is my self portrait.


These are my "Collision" photos.




The rest of these are all candidates for my 10 submissions. I've included the numbers so you can vote for your choices. Let me know which ones you like best.

I like "Vote 5" not because the other ones are bad, but because they are obvious and are likely to be submitted by others. They are exactly like I would've taken them. Dude in the hat is good but half of someone's face doesn't belong.
