So I will be submitting 3 images to the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. And here are the ones that you helped me choose:
This image was the clear winner.
These 2 below tied for third. I think that I will be submitting the top one since I am concerned about the sharpness of the bottom one, but I will probably print both and see which looks best.
Thanks so much for your votes everyone! It was great to see what you liked, my own personal jury process. I was originally thinking of submitting images like the winter biker (#6) but this got very few votes. And images like the three girls on the bench, and the soccer group got no votes (#s 9 and 10), so they obviously did not strike anyone. An interesting exercise, maybe we'll do it again sometime.
