and the winner is....the loser

dear friends who took so much time and energy to give me your opinions about my tennis ball photos:
thank you thank you thank you. i know you are all desperately checking spackleshot for an update as to which photo i used. turns out a very interesting thing happened in the process of polling. 1) i was truly touched by your thoughtful analysis and sometimes complementary comments. 2) reading your often unique opinions only seemed to reinforce my own. i posted these photos because i was insecure about the shot i immediately chose from the group. i knew which photo i wanted from the start. i printed it first. in my mind it was the one. yet i was so unsure that it was the 'right' choice. turns out for good reason, as it came in last place. if i listened to all of you as you'd think i would since i'm the one who asked, i would have chosen the tennis ball disguised as a pepper. yet i rebelled. the more you guys passed up my first choice, the more confident i became that it was the one. and it was. so i present to you the loser which was my winner.....maybe i just tricked you all into commenting to show you how fun and easy it is. and maybe in the future you'll be so inspired that we'll continue to have this great conversation. or other great conversations....okay, enough.
oh, by the way, 'tennis ball, soft' was very well received by my class, who couldn't imagine me using any other shot. thank you for your encouragement!

I still like the self-portrait the best!

The ball between the legs is the most interesting. The ball in blue shadow is also quite fetching.

funny cause I wanted to say the veggie one or this one, but I didn't have any reasons why, so I didn't dare write it down. I'm really ignorant about photography, so really don't have any confidence. Reading spackleshot is very good experience in this respect I think. Thanks for the great work !
