Great photo!  I think most people who appreciate tops also like kites.

Generally I don't want to nominate more than one photo from the same photographer (and with the same player to boot), but Jay has so many good ones that I'll make an exception:

Are others having difficulties voting?
There isn't a check mark box next to the nominees that I see.?..
My votes will be for number 4, 1 and 2 though in that order.  :)  ;)

Mark: you should now be able to vote on the poll on top of the thread. I forgot to reset the settings of the ITSA Jr. members who could not vote during the ITSA general assembly.

It seems that this is heading to a runoff between Sunset Spin and Spintop Cowboy. But there is still one day left.

Congratulations Jim! Great sunset!
You join select company!

I will probably use photos from the contest on the ITSA website (I should have included a clause on the rules, but I don't think anybody is going to object).

(I have merged the voting thread with the original thread).
