Tis the season to be giving…

We are competitive.  We do what it takes to one-up one another – food, sports, and now, photos.  I will take a picture, he’ll look at it, “That’s nice” and try to one-up me! “Mine is better than yours.”  Perhaps.  Perhaps, he has one-upped me OR can we say I have taught him well… my little grasshoppah?  We took this weekend of relaxation, a little getaway from our usual routine and it turned into a little competition… a friendly competition.  I’d like to call it iphoto.one.up.u!  He calls it the Photo ProAm.  Dueling vantage points from our iphones to show our similarities and differences.

Our competition gave me an idea to get everyone involved and to give away a session this holiday season.  There are 13 sets of images below, mine and the Grasshoppah’s side by side.  You have to decide which image I took. To answer, post the set number and answer  (left side) with A  or (right side) with B to figure out which photo I took by posting it here or on facebook.

Example:  1. A (Sina’s) B (Grasshoppah’s) OR
1. Photo A (Sina’s)

The winner receives a 30 minute session, shot on-location in San Diego, with Vaylia Photography.  You will get to choose 5 digital negatives from the session and receive 25 (3.5×5) prints of one choice image.  In the event of a tie, a drawing will determine the winner.  I will post the answer on November 29th.  Good luck!!!

11/29/11 UPDATE:  I posted the answers above each photo for everyone.  There is a 3 way tie with only 3 incorrect:  Cyndee, Laura, and Mirabelle.  Lil’ Broozer helped me choose the winner:
