Thanks for everyone's input. After some soul searching and comparing side by side and lots of butt scratching (sorry for the visual) I narrowed it down to three images...

#8 Lighthouse Point, New Haven, CT
#4 Christ Church, Dublin, Ireland
#12 "I am the Entertainer" Dublin, Ireland

I'll be dropping them off tomorrow (Saturday) and judging is on Monday with results being posted online by the 16th. This is through the Shoreline Arts Alliance and it's their 35th annual competition. It's my first foray into a juried show so I don't really know what to expect but I suppose it doesn't hurt to try.

Wish me luck...

Thanks for the encouragement, Tom. I appreciate it.

I dropped off the three prints this morning. We'll see what happens. There's going to be a gallery showing later in the month. I'll have to check it out and see what the competition was like. I'll bring my camera, of course.
