*****Final Poll for March Photo contest***** Please come, Vote, and K & R [View all]

Subject for the March contest :

"A Photographer's Favorite"

The participants posted a favorite photo of theirs, any subject, that they had not had a chance to show in a contest.

Thanks to all of you for voting in the three preliminaries. Here are the 10 finalists for your consideration. I expect this will be a stiff competition.
The poll will run for 3 days and after that I will announce the winners and the names of the photographers of all the photos that were submitted since this has been one of our rare completely blind contests where the names are only known to me as the host.
Please vote for the photo that speaks to you the most, and don't forget to Kick and Recommend.

We especially appreciate your comments.

Thank you very much. We could not have this much fun without your participation and appreciation.

Here are the top ten photos from the three preliminary threads:

Garlic and White Onions

Panes of Gold

Three Phases of Landing

A Portrait of Intensity

Winter Range

Misty Solitude

I'm coming for you
