Default Entering into local photo contest. Need help choosing which to submit!

I'm entering a local photo contest. I have the pictures narrowed down to a few, but can only submit 2. Please choose the 2 you think are winners. They have to be submitted to the cemetery staff in 8x10 size. I'll post thumbnails with links to the larger images. If the image is too big, click on the "medium" link at the top.

The cemetery was quite unremarkable. really boring. I'm going to try to make this a poll where you can choose 2 of the 5. Hopefully it will work. If not, I appreciate any feedback here.

Photo 1:
This was taken with a Holga plastic lens on my Digital Rebel XSi. Then I dangled a Hoya R72 IR filter in front of it. Note the person (me) kneeling. It was a 30 second shutter.

Photo 2:
Shepherd watching over his flock? Preacher and the congregation?

Photo 3:
Another Holga Infrared. This time I made it B&W. Note me again, as a walking ghost.

click for photo 3

Photo 4:
Holga IR again. Note the inverse focus. I don't know if this works or if they will understand it.

click for photo 4

Photo 5:
Note that with all these Holga IR pics here, I will only be able to submit 2.

#2 is the best composition.

In your poll you should have added one more....None of the Above. Your shots all suffer from poor post processing and most if not all have a focusing problem. I would like to see the originals posted before any pp was done.

Thanks for your constructive input. As a matter of fact, there was almost no post-processing. auto levels. That's it. Do you know what a Holga lens is? Only photo #2 was taken without the Holga.

So I hoped that this photo forum would have been able to provide useful feedback. guess not. oh well. back to flickr.

I can't see the images, or I'd be happy to give you feedback. I get the message to sigh up here, and I don't sign up to any sites, unless I personally use them.

Memento, please give us a chance here. Your links just go to some sign-up page for Flickr. I'd like to see these at a reasonable size.
