You Decide(d) 2008: the votes are in!

9 08 2008

Drum roll, please. Cover #1 wins by a landslide! Via e-mail, blog comments, telephone calls, in person votes, and man/woman/complete stranger on the street polls, Cover #1 received 34 votes, beating Cover 2 (with three votes) and Cover 3 (with five votes). Don’t ever say your vote doesn’t count!

Cover #1 will grace the September/October 2008 issue of Hearing Loss Magazine, which is in production now. I must confess that this is my favorite as well. (Did you notice it was the first one I prepared? I always go with my first instinct when I’m reviewing images from a session.) Why? In this photograph—“the eyes have it.” By the way, Patrick was a joy to photograph because he took direction well and heeded my advice on posing, facial expressions, etc. And to think he has never modeled!

Thank you to everyone who voted (and for taking the time to comment on why you chose which one you did).

Yes, I will post the “best of the best” photos from my next photo session with Patrick. 😉

Hey, if you like bugs (and who doesn’t?), check out Dan David Brady’s “Insect Picture of the Day” site. Dan David is a software engineer and amateur photographer. I checked out his site and it’s really fun to read. He definitely is “someone who thinks bugs are neat.” Just like moi.

Oh, and check out the addendum to my recent posting titled, “Photographic smorgasbord.” I’ve gone to the trouble (yes, folks, just for you) of researching and trying to identify most of the critters I photographed that morning. Go on, revisit that posting. I promise you’ll learn something you can spout about and impress your friends with at your next bbq!
