As part of the BenSpark’s August Add It Up Contest I have asked each contestant to submit a photo for a little photo contest that was suggested by Lisa. A few contestants have submitted a photo to me. I am putting them all up here. I want each person who visits this site to leave a comment on which photo they like the best. Photos will not be identified by the contestant, but rather by numbers. so in the comment say. “I like photo #__!” That will bring in a vote for your favorite photo. Comment voting ends on the 24th at 12:00 noon EST.

Here are the photos. You can click them for a larger photo.

  1. Spanish Joe says:

    Are contestants allowed to vote for themselves? :)

  2. Drew says:

    Sure, I will consider that post one vote for your photo. No need to say which photo you are voting for, that way we keep it all anonymous. So each contestant has one vote for themselves. So either way you are all starting equally.:-) Thanks for sending a photo for this, I really thought that more contestants would have sent in photos.

  3. Hmm now if Spanish Joe Votes we will know which picture is his.

    I like photo #3.

    #1 is ok but having the truck in the frame ruins it for me

    #2 is really cool but it looks like a postcard

    #3 is cool the way the bronze on the lion in stained is really neat and the background of the grey sky is perfect for the lions expression. If you stare at it long enough you can feel the emotion the sculptor was trying to express.

    Oh yeah and I like Lions (even though technically they are cats)

  4. Drew says:

    Stpehen you are correct however if each player already gets one vote for voting for their own then we know nothing about who is who. Your insight into each photo is well noted. Thanks for voting.

  5. Lisa says:

    Are we allowed to promote our own picture?

  6. Drew says:

    If you would like to write a post on your blogs to promote your photo go right ahead. That is fine. All I ask is that you not reveal the identity of your photo on this blog so that the commenting can be impartial. Other than that promote away.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    Although I agree that photo #1 would be better without the vehicle in the shot, I still like it the best. The composition and colors are so nice, and the framing is excellent.

  8. Kat says:

    I like #1 because it’s a dead tree. It has that perfect creepy feel to it.

  9. Laurie says:

    All three are neat, but I like #1 best. It’d be even cooler in black & white… kinda like Ansel Adams!

  10. Shannon says:

    I like #1 the best… it would be great if the vehicle was cropped and it was in B&W. For colors though #2 is awesome

  11. AzDana says:

    I like #1 the best. Its an interesting study in contrasts, the bare tree standing amongst trees with full foliage. Very nice!

  12. Lisa says:

    Add me to the photo #1 camp!

  13. jon8105 says:

    I must say I like photo #1 the best!!

  14. I like #1! Way cool! I’ve been getting in a Halloween-y mood already – and that fits in perfectly with it!

  15. Charlotte says:

    I like #1 the best!

  16. skeet says:

    Another vote for #1, though all three are good photos!

  17. Drew says:

    Thanks Elizabeth, I appreciate you commenting and voting.

  18. Drew says:

    Thank you for voting Kat.

  19. Drew says:

    I agree that black and white and teh cropped out truck would have made this a better picture. Thanks for voting.

  20. Drew says:

    Thanks for stopping in to vote Shannon.

  21. Drew says:

    Thank you AzDana. I appreciate you coming to comment and vote.

  22. Drew says:

    Thank you Lisa, I have added you to the Photo #1 camp.

  23. Drew says:

    Thank you Jon, I appreciate you taking the time to comment and vote.

  24. Drew says:

    Thanks Lisa Marie,
    That photo does come in time for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

  25. Drew says:

    Thanks Charlotte, your vote for #1 has been counted.

  26. Drew says:

    Skeet, nice to see you around these parts, I appreciate all the voting you’ve been doing for me int he Super Bowl contest, I am in 4th place and probably not even close to winning but I have appreciated the help from my online friends.

  27. AVCr8teur says:

    Congratulations to all who remembered to send in photos. I got busy and forgot, oh well… I love Photo #2.

  28. Drew says:

    That is okay, many people forgot. I appreciate that a few folks remembered. For some reason this post had 459 visits yesterday through Stumble Upon, that is insane.

  29. Lisa says:

    I think I submitted it there. I was trying to figure it out. :)

  30. Drew says:

    Thanks, it brought 459 visits to this blog. People didn’t do much while they were here but wow. I’d love to see people hit the Photo-A-Day page that hard. It was awesome to see.

  31. Jenn says:

    I’m throwing in my vote for #1. Even though it would be better without the vehicle, I understand we can’t always get what we want. I think the photographer made the best out of it.

  32. Drew says:

    Thanks Jenn, #1 did end up winning the prize. Thansk for voting.
