I like Picture A because of the colors - it is also perfectly composed. An extremely pleasing picture.

In Picture B, one's line of sight is drawn at once (at least for me) to Queen Silvia standing close and supportively next to the King. This one factor makes the picture compelling imo. The rest is 'ordinary' if one can call beaming in-love parents 'ordinary'.

In Picture C, I love Mathilde. Great color and composition.

In Picture D, the women's dresses are amazing, especially the lower left pale green one. However, the composition is 'ragged'.

Picture E is a nice action shot - good composition.

Picture F not unique in any way.

Ditto Picture G - unsure why this was chosen.

Picture H is amazing. The two soldiers' positions are absolutely serendipity. The soldiers are what make the composition unique and interesting. Quite aside from the royalty subject, this is a prize-winning shot.

Picture I is not unique nor interesting in a compositional sense.

Ditto for Picture J.

SO......the standout pictures (imo) in terms of composition are A, C, E, and H - with Picture H winning hands-down.

However, in terms of subject matter and overall interest - plus color and composition - Picture A wins.

I voted for Picture A.
