I would like to enter the amatuer photography contest at the county fair this fall. I would like some advice on which of the following pictures would be best to enter and any constructive critism would also be great.

  Hi, out of the images I would pick the "eyes" photo. On my laptop screen (which isn't calibrated to your screen, so if I'm wrong with what I'm saying I appologize) I don't see much contrast in your black and white images, they look very grey the image doesn't pop out at you. You need to have brighter whites. Your flower image is very beautiful, I do think that if the whites (also) were brighter it would give it more "depth" to the image and make it even more appealing to the eye. In the "tracks" image the sky is the only eye catching part. The image is blurry, I'm assuming that it was a longer esposure since the sun was setting. If you had a tripod that image would be Stunning! So, just a few things to consider when/if you reshoot these images. You have a great eye for finding your shots it's just the fine tuning. Good luck at the fair!
