Those are great! I'm guessing the eye photo is going to be a winner for sure. Good luck!

Shannon - I found your blog through the Photographer's Workshop (I was in it the same time as you). I have so enjoyed looking at your daily pictures but I have to say, the pictures you submitted for the contest are out of this world!!!! You have such a talent for photography. Best of luck to you in the contest, I'd be surprised if you didn't win.
