I like the first one a lot, but there is something too.. I don't know. Bright, maybe, I am not sure? What I do know is that the colors are spectacular, that is without a doubt. Also, Who knows, This may be the color combo the competition needs. Either way, you have got yourself some solid entries there my friend.
Thanks Arley. I took the brightness up a bit, turns out that my images might be too dark for print in some instances so i'm working towards a lighter image now! I too look at it and think it may be too bright.. but then I check it on my laptop and its fine (I should gamma adjust both setups, but lazy as this laptop is for web only)
All the other entries are quite dark from what I rememeber, maybe I just like to go against the grain in that sense
