I have to say it was really tough to choose just one to vote for -- so many great entries! Great job everyone!! :D

Sure was some good entries! I wonder if Admin can post a link at the top of the forum to get more people to vote?

I looked at them all several times before I voted, nice job everyone!

Good luck to everyone who entered!

I just came back from climbing the big mountain you see in my entry picture. :) My knees are killing me.

I am having a really hard time. I suggest next time we allow for ordering our votes, 1st, 2nd, 3rd. I love all of the pictures, and several of them are all equally the best. Perhaps a key consideration could be the clarity or the image or capturing the specific details of the contest. Anyway, my vote tonight before I rest.

Thanks to all.

Good idea Hogg but we're trying to keep it as simple as possible while we grow the contest..

VERY tough decision. It was difficult not to be influenced by the beauty of the scenery. I went for photo quality, composition, perceived difficulty of flying in the area and whether the photo grabbed me the first time I saw it (weighted most heavily).

I finally narrowed it down to one, but only because I HAD to. It would be great if this eventually evolves into a set of "judging criteria" or at least a ranking rather than a single choice.

But I'm happy that there were so many quality entries to inspire me to get a camera and get it airborne myself.

Congratulations to ALL the entrants. All of the entries were a joy to see and I'm glad I got the opportunity to see them.

Wow!!! Two comments

1. What a choice. I can't believe how great some of these pics are. I have only got it narrowed down to seven (which I saved off into a folder so I can view again easier). I may need until the 29 to decide...

2. Man I need to get out more. Even if I had a camera on my plane I wouldn't be getting pictures like these.

Nice job everyone

With all there great photos voting for only one is tough I know. While it hasn't happened before theres always the possibility of a tie for first or second place. Should a tie occur I think we can have a 5 day run off between the photos involved to get our winners if needed. Anyone see a problem with this backup plan?

Sounds reasonable, What a great bunch of pic's! Had to do a lot of pondering before I could cast a vote on this one.
