*VOTING* for Pastel Picture Contest!! Help Everyone!

Ok so after alot of intense deliberation i've finally managed to choose my top 10!
I admit I had some help as there were so many great ones to choose from, but I made sure to take not only photo focus into consideration, but lighting, the horse's positioning as well as clarity and expression!
Now we just need help with the voting.
I've put the pictures in no particular order, without names just numbered 1 thorugh 10.
Cast your vote on the poll above & by January 19th we'll know the winner!

So I want to state why I chose the pics I chose...
For Photo 1, I just thought it looked so "clean." The background was plain & simple, though not natural, however I liked the clarity as well as the position of the mare's face and how well shined up she was, especially her white areas.

For Photo 2, this one just stood out to me. The horse, like #1 is clean & glossy and faced in the camera's direction, though not looking directly at it.

Photo 3 is just a lovely image, made all the more stunning in b&w. Love the gleam in the horse's eye & the sharpness of him in comparison to the background.

Photo 4 is great I think. The lighting is beautiful and the way the horse is coming down into the photo made it a sure pick for the top ten for me.

I liked Photo 5 because of the contrast between the horse & his background, which looks nearly black. The grey horse really stands out.

Photo 6 just makes me laugh. I was really taken by the clarity of it, and how the water droplets stand out, even on his whiskers!

Photo 7 is lovely. The foal's expression is so sweet & funny and i'm pretty sure she's on the verge of a whinny! Lol!

I really liked Photo 8. The color of the mare along with the shadowing and the "baren" background really makes it a nice pic. I liked how her left eye is still shining, even in shadow.

For Photo 9 I chose it simply because of the overal positioning. The little mini is groomed up nicely & the purple ribbon sets him off nicely. I love the background he's put against as well.

And finally Photo 10 was a last minute decision. Something about it really stood out to me. I love the softness in the horse's eye. He looks so gentle & sweet & the picture is sharp and at a nice angle, I think!

Woo, I made the cut! I am so excited to see the results!! I wish my photo had shown up sharper (#3) - it's so SO much better on my computer. Photobucket compressed it, and it lost a LOT of detail.
LilRuffian, your paintings are just amazing, and whoever wins is a lucky, lucky duck.
