    Which camel(s) up to the job?

    OK - there's a photo challenge on a photo forum with the subject being camels, and only 1 entry is allowed per person. I have a selection of 4 images below - which do you think is most suitable???

    It doesn't have to be in black and white though, and I have colour versions of 2 and 4.


    1.

    Agreed, number 1, great contrast and the sharpness is almost unreal, reminds me of my deployment in Iraq. All are good but number Uno takes the cake

    I suppose it would be offensive to ask what the horsepower ratings are. This group of pix are comming up on my monitor at a better brightness than your previous group.

    #1 is my choice - good luck.

    One more vote for the 1st one! Amazing sharpness, good contrast and it actually comes with the challenge of counting how many camels are hehe Each one of them have a different "expression", it is funny to see it!

    I would have to go with #1 also, but it has to be viewed full size to truly appreciate it.

    Hi Phil,

    No. 1 may be the best technically. But if the subject is camels, then #1 fails because the man is too prominent. If the subject is camels, as suggested by the title, then you have to go with #2.

    But perhaps I misunderstand . . .

    #2 for me Phil.
    All brilliant images but there is something about 2 that immediately did the ships of the desert for me.
    Best of luck with the challenge

    #1 or #2, but I really like #2 the best, viewed on black, this really emphasizes the camels!! Nice work on all of them! Best of Luck!
