I hope this is OK. I need help picking an entry for the next contest. [View all]

I was really excited to see that the topic for the next contest is rivers and streams. I've been shooting landscape photos ever since I retired ten years ago, and I have lots of rivers and streams. However, I quickly went through my files and came up with thirty eight possible entries! Yikes! I'm having a worse time than usual picking two of them.

Would you folks mind helping me decide on one or two? Thanks. Let me know if you think this isn't OK. I still have a lot more and I may make another post.
