Help me pick some pictures!

So I am maybe/probably entering the Champaign County Parks District photo contest thinger (insert a lot of babbling about how I don't think my pictures are very contesty here) and I'm having trouble narrowing it down to three pictures. Input appreciated. And if there's a picture you've seen on my flickr that you think is way better than these, let me know.
Here's the set on Flickr.


Feathers
Love this one but I doubt abstracty stuff is popular.

Conquistador Helmet
Also love.

Paint the Rink Pink
Love because it makes me dizzy.

This way!
benchilada has insisted I enter this one. :D

Roasting tea
Worried that the hand looks out of focus rather than in motion.

Buddha's palm
Needs to be lightened.

Manequin
Probably too creepy?

Squirrel Monkey 2
People love monkeys.

Strolling monk
And monks! This one's a little boring, actually.

I like #1, 2, 6, and 7. I don't think & is too creepy.

On a related note, I was in Alembic the other day, drinking and looking at their bitters, and decide I want to make some too! Is there another site where you talk about your project? Any "Bitters-Making" online communities I should know about?

Also, would you be interested in swapping samples? I have to get tiny bottles for this. Also I have to go down to BevMo and buy several kinds so I can figure out what I want them to turn out like. But we've had great success with our galangal infusion and are looking to branch out into bitters this year.

I could certainly swap samples. I only have the Earl Grey left though. Have you started your project yet?
I just looked at a few different sites to get recipe ideas, this one's pretty good- http://spiritsandcocktails.wordpress.com/2008/04/22/how-to-make-bitters/
Next time I think i'll do some cooking down of ingredients after infusing them. I think all my bitters taste great but could be heavier bodied. Not sure how to make that work.
