My favorites are: windows and crew relaxes but it's hard to say because they are all really great! Very artistic.

They are all great, but my favourite four are:

<B>"Tame green lizzy at Bird Island"</B>
A good, sharp close up.

<B>"Hawksbill turtle hatchling rescued out of a small swamp at Dutchman Bay"</B>
Another good, sharp close up with vivid colors.

<B>"Windows from old road looking at cades reef"</B>
Nicely proportioned with the ocean in the distance.

<B>"Mirror Calm fishing day in the Atlantic"</B>
Just looks great, such an intense blue that fades up into the sky.

the exhibition starts Friday Feb 3rd and it's going to be very good. Saw some of Soumi Sengupta's photos and they were great. He has a proper camera it showes in the images. There are some pros who are entering as well. Looks like it will be very good. Thanks for the help picking them. I ended up printing about 10 and picked the three that i figured lookes best in frames. I let my mom and sis pick the 4th. the ones that i am trying to get shown at the exhibition are the mirro calm, the ray, the side of the boat at sunset, and a different jelly fish shown here: <a Image

Just got back from Antigua this morning. I went along to the Woods Gallery and had a look around, some very good photos there. Eli, your four pics were great, I liked the mirror calm the best, I look fantastic in the frame.

thanks. i think someone is taking that one home. pics of the ocean and water in general make most people feel peaceful. its funny how many people love that image. my sister, standing over my shoulder told me to include it otherwise nobody would have seen it. i didn't think it was that special. glad i did tho.
