Hmm. That's like asking which one of the three folk will vote for and that's almost like submitting three entries in the competition proper. I don't think that's fair to other entries so, unless over-ruled by popular demand, I'd suggest you don't do it. I'm sure you'll make the right choice and doing so is part of the fun... 8)

Good luck with your entry.

Bob.

I have a good idea but that's only possible after returning from Hong Kong, and that's one day too late, 1st of march. :cry:

Thank you Bikerag. I used graduated-fog, graduated-filters, and manual Split-toning. I hadn't heard of this program until the studio I work at had it installed on all of the computers- dynamic skin softener in particular has been an extremely useful tool for retouching. I'm still getting the hang of all the other effects it is capable of, this is actually the first image of my own that I have used it with!

I'm honored that I got your votes. Thank you very much. My A700 and 70-200 f/2.8 lens took a drop. Killed my best lens, and my camera lived on for about three weeks before it also died. So I'm shooting my husband's camera until...
