WOW-Eeeee! Can you believe it? I can’t. I think next time I’ll have to narrow it down somehow. Getting these pictures together for the blog took me an hour and half! That’s a lot of time for a new mom! BUT, IT IS SOOOO WORTH IT! Aren’t they pretty?

So, your votes will narrow it down to the top 5 images and then I’ll retouch them and we’ll pick our favorite again. Remember be sure and write what you like best about the photo and why it’s your favorite.

I’m giddy…let the voting begin!

Cyndee - May 2, 2008 - 10:22 am

I’m voting for picture C. My allergies have been crazy the last couple of days. Just looking at that “snow”storm almost made me sneeze! That is DEFINITELY what Spring means to me! 🙂

calissa - May 2, 2008 - 10:36 am

Photo C…. I love how the cherry blossoms look like they’re snowing. Just beautiful!

tiedtogetherwithasmile - May 2, 2008 - 10:55 am

These are all so good! I love Photo H!! I like the angle and that its a candid shot. Those rubber boots are so cute too!

Jen Leitner - May 2, 2008 - 11:02 am

Photo L is the one I am voting for.

Spring is a time of newness, where nature is starting to live again. This picture defines my definition of spring perfectly.

The baby birds are nature and very new,

Can I vote for both? If not, I guess I’ll vote for photo D!

Jaice - May 2, 2008 - 1:43 pm

Nice, vibrant colors. Besides, the kid is just adorable.

Julie Bock - May 2, 2008 - 4:14 pm

Joyce – I vote for Q.

Marty - May 2, 2008 - 6:49 pm

I’m voting for R. Its beauty is stunning and the composition and color look professional.

Melissa - May 2, 2008 - 6:59 pm

C! Nothing like snowing cherry blossoms to show spring! (its mine…hehe) By the way, you should see how many people are wearing masks here because of the blossoms…the japanese love cherry blossoms but about 80% of them are allergic…sad…

Debbie - May 2, 2008 - 7:14 pm

My vote is for letter Q!

Teri Sommer - May 2, 2008 - 7:18 pm

I am going to vote for photo T because it’s mine, and my kids were so naturally drawn to that one piece of grass on the warm day.

However, there are so many other photos I love here. If I hadn’t submitted my own, I would probably vote for AA. I love the colors, and movement captured. And the fact that they are windmills are so fun to me. One of my favorite things about spring is openning the windows and letting the breeze flow through the house, or driving with windows open and the wind wipping. The refreshing winds of spring are one of my favorite things about spring!

All the photos are so beautiful, and they do bring a smile to my face!

Blessings,
Teri

Jill - May 2, 2008 - 7:20 pm

Kathryn - May 3, 2008 - 7:59 am

Varsha - May 3, 2008 - 8:09 am

Definitely S.. Awesome it is!!!!!

Vennessa - May 3, 2008 - 8:23 am

Beth Marsh - May 3, 2008 - 8:34 am

I vote for BB. I totally love how the couple is kissing, but also smiling so much like the beginning of their whole life together excites them! They are the subject of the picture, like thet are the only ones that matter that day!

Sarah Dolan - May 3, 2008 - 8:35 am

Photo BB.
It’s beautiful.

Jen Westpfahl - May 3, 2008 - 9:34 am

Can we vote for two? I can’t decide between Q and T. Q is just such a neat setting and I like the way the kid is sitting. But T best captures what spring is to me. And they are both really simple, which I like.

pavan - May 3, 2008 - 9:36 am

MY vote is for photo S .

Hannah - May 3, 2008 - 9:55 am

Photo C: The blossoms look like snow falling. Welcome to spring in MN, where it snows one day and blooms the next…and then snows again! Also, the construction in the background (because spring is when all the roads shut down for construction) and people out walking again. I like the angle the photo was taken at.

Rebecca - May 3, 2008 - 10:10 am

I like both L and X but if I can’t vote for both, I’ll pick L. Baby birds are so amazing!

BendingPeak - May 3, 2008 - 10:19 am

Oh, I love photo D.

julie - May 3, 2008 - 10:26 am

I vote for photo D. I think it has good clarity. I also like the combination of nature, man-made and patriotism.

Gena McMillan - May 3, 2008 - 10:29 am

I vote for BB I love wedding pictures and this is soo romantic. It is a great showing of the new beginnings that spring brings in life!

Dipal - May 3, 2008 - 10:43 am

Lexie - May 3, 2008 - 12:37 pm

Photo R. I like the pink flower.

Reed - May 3, 2008 - 12:38 pm

I vote for R. It is beautiful!

Ellie - May 3, 2008 - 1:33 pm

Photo “L” is amazing. It must have been difficult to get that shot of all the babies with their mouths open at once. I commend the photographer.

Sally - May 3, 2008 - 1:34 pm

Photo L is the best by far. My vote goes to the baby birds.

Pat - May 3, 2008 - 2:02 pm

Sherry - May 3, 2008 - 3:13 pm

Shelly - May 3, 2008 - 9:41 pm

Hi Everyone!

My boys love smelling flowers, I am to remind them that they can’t always pick them, even though they want to share them with Mommy, smelling them are amazing just the same.

My vote is for photo G

Shannon - May 4, 2008 - 1:05 pm

I think the little boy in P is so cute, and that little girl takes amazing picture. 🙂 But since it’s not really right to vote for our submission, I will vote for Q. That table is really neat. I would love to take my own children there. Thanks Noemi!
