Which Photograph is your Favourite?


  1. I love all of them but specially the tenth and eight..

  2. 2, 3, 6, 8, 12.
    Could only narrow it down to those 5. They are all very evocative and just simple fun to look at. Excellent images.

  3. 2,5,6,12. They are so wonderful!

  4. # 2 but they are all fantastic. I have never seen a puffin. What crazy looking birds!

  5. 3 & 10, but they're all beautiful!

  6. They're all excellent. I particularly like the way in which the light and shadow shows the ridged structure of the beak. In most photos their beaks look smooth.

  7. #2. He seems so painfully vulnerable.

  8. Wow -- they're all just stunning -- how on earth to choose? 2 is probably my favorite, but I love 1, 8 and 12 too. How lucky you are to live near them!

  9. No 12 best by far. Terri

  10. I LOVE ALL OF THEM, esp the HOPLESS ROMANTIC....for that one is my twin..Being Gemini I knew I had another half of me somehwere and how glorious it is in Fair Isle...---Merri McElderry

  11. No.2 reminds me of an old carry on actor called Leslie Phillips & No. 6 looks like he's saying REALLY!!! Do You Mind - Stalki Wurly
