    Is it a themed contest?

    No, just a general contest

    OK, it is official, #2 wins (I posted these images on several forums and most said #2). I actually like #1 better but for a reason y'all don't know about. These images are not mine, they are Maddy's (my 11 year old daughter). She is in a photo contest again this year with the BETA Club. With #1, it was all her, she saw the scene and grabbed it all by herself. In #2, I pointed out the scene, told her to take several angles (from behind the artist, etc). She did the editing on both (with a little instruction from me).

    I am hoping they let her enter both images, since there are two categories, BW & color.

    She took 2nd place in state last year with this image

    It was funny to see the reactions on people's faces as she walked around New Orleans. Most people had camera phones, or basic DSLR's, and here she is with $2500+ in camera equipment hanging around neck. She used a simple Canon T1i with a 24-70 2.8 ans a 430 EXii speedlite.

    For some stupid reason, the images have to be 8x10 instead of 8x12 (like most cameras take), so here are the final products. I guess that is what happens when non-photographers set the rules

    Awesome stuff Maddy,

    I agree # 2 all the way

    Had you suggested to her to consider a vertical crop? just a thought

    Beta 1 great shot Chris. I would crop it just above knee to remove bright distraction from my eyes. Just a thought. I love the shot.
