11. Impossible for me to choose.

A few contests have such marvelous entries that makes it impossible for me to choose.

This is an excellent example.
All these are brilliant.

17. Pretty difficult choices. All of these are very, very good - each in

its own way. Snowy River Colne was my favorite, just because I think the composition was brilliant. But every single one of these was amazing.

I love these threads! Beautiful art.

22. Maybe it's time to do ranked choice voting...

I had a hell of a time deciding, and it looks like I'm not the only one.

That said, Thank you CaliforniaPeggy for posting these incredible photos.

44. Ranked choice voting would be excellent for the early stages of these

contests, too. But I suspect it would be too much work for whoever is running them.

42. What a selection! 👏 ...

not easy!

Finally choose "fog sunrise". You can just about see the upper parts of the trees contrasting with that vivid pink steak.

Mt Shasta - amazing ?lenticular clouds.

Evening Snowfall - lovely composed B&W

2am Driveway - the opening of a movie?

Snowy River - another beautiful B&W composition
with a surprise twist of upside-down

And Squirrel!

45. Early morning kick, with a rec regarding viewing the photos...

For each, right click or press & hold, then, "Open image in new tab," or "View image," depending on the browser.

Takes a little time, but I find it helps to see each photo on its own with a neutral background. Still hard, though, to choose just one pic as best!

50. Another great batch. I've narrowed it down to 2, but I just cannot decide!

I thought last night I saw there were only 25 hours left, but it says 1 day, 36 minutes left, now, so I must have misread it before. I might have to flip a coin before tomorrow afternoon.
