2008 Contest Vote Off

Welcome back to the Skelton Photography 2008 Favorite Image of the Year Contest.
Since my wonderful, dedicated, loving, kind-hearted, slightly indecisive blog readers could not vote on ONE's a Vote Off!

I have narrowed down the choices (okay, I admit I
might have given you a few too many too choose from before) to the ones that received the most votes.

Please choose your favorite from the Friends & Family Gallery & the Wedding Gallery below.
Please vote by leaving a comment by Saturday, February 7th. The number is above the image.

Enjoy! And remember, the image winner and a lucky voter will win a surprise! :)

Happy Voting!

Friends & Family

Denise, number 13 is my favorite. There are so many different things that you could say to interpret that photo. Things like...."Wait a minute before we carry on here, I need a Coke break." or maybe, "Buddy, we may be married now, but you are not going to stop me from having my Coke when I need it." It is just something so normal and ordinary that we do set in a very special day when we do out of the ordinary things.

Ok, this was a hard choice, but for Family and Friends #2 - TOO CUTE! For Weddings I have 2 favorites, but I guess my number 1 pic is #10. 2 me it's one of those take your breath away photos - the scenery is beautiful. My 2nd pic is #11 - They'd better be going to an awesome honeymoon for her to have to pump the gas - LOL!!! Great job on all & wish they could all win :) Can't wait to see the 2009 choices!

I'm going to be selfish and vote for my own children! #7 ROCKS! For the wedding shot, I'm gonna go with #11.

Jana said...

Well, I gotta go w/ my girl in the friends & family....#4. As far as the wedding pic goes, I love #10!

Kellee Gilpin said...

All the pictures are great! But I'm voting for #6 as my favorite :)

They are all great but for family and friends I pick #2. This is so cutsie, sweet and heartwarming. We see lots of women in pictures like this-not many guys-I love it. For the wedding photo I'd have to say #14-It's like his buds are saying "We're right behind you man and we're keeping it real for you" acting all goofy on one of the most important days of his life. It adds some calmness to a usually stressful day for most people-I love it.

Friends and family: #9. The best wife and son EVER!

Wedding: #14, for I will never, ever get that much air again. I'm glad it was documented.

Sorry, I'm selfish, I know.

Susan Helms said...

MICHAEL said...

I'm voting for sweet little Maggie #4, and #10 on the wedding photos!

Kay said...

Hi, I like #2 & #13. All are priceless to the people involved and their families. How about a series of wedding day pictures of the brides and their canned drinks?

Friends and Family has to be #2. This is so sweet, cute, touching-we see lots of girl pictues like this but not so many guy pictures. I love it. The wedding photo for me is #14-his buds acting on goofy on one of the most important days of his life-kind of a calming affect-I love the unusual.

Do employees get a vote? ;)
I love them all!

britt said...

I'm voting by photog standards - #6 is a perfect shot.
On a personal level, it's a 3 way tie between "Kisses", "Bellies", and "Miss Mags". :)
I'll leave the wedding shots to the voters!

"Hey Denise! I can't make my vote from my blackberry for some reason. The photos are amazing! I like 6 and 13 the best. I love your work!"
