#2 and #5

#1 would be really nice if you had a long shutter and some moving rides in the background.

They are all great shots, making it difficult to have to choose just 2 from them. I would have to say #2 and #4 would be my picks if I had to choose. Great work!

They're all lovely pictures, as you already know.

I suggest you make, or have made, prints as large as you can sensibly afford of each, and lay them out ona floor or big bed, so you can see them all at once. Preferably make your own choice. But also you could do some research on the judges, and try to view the results of previous competitions, to see what's expected, and if there's a theme, or type of image that wins from year to year.

Unless the judging's by popular acclaim, though, you may as well make your own choice; personal taste in artis gloriously variable. And don't forget that almost all the world's greatest, in all spheres of the arts (and even sciences sometimes), have often been wildly out of step with the views of their elders and 'betters', and usually most of their contemporaries. So if you were to be judged a failure, many others are likely to disagree, later if not now.

That's what I tell myself, anyway! Alan T
