Photo Competition and Photo Trickery

It's that time again. My camera club will have another competition on November 24. As I am undergoing surgery next week, I have to start thinking today about which photos I would like to enter.  I can enter a total of five photos: two digital and three actual photos.

Here are the photos that I am thinking of entering:

My two digital entries

These will be my photos:

(I love this photo. I think my daughter-in-law looks so beautiful wearing her hijab (head covering). We were in a Mosque when I took this picture. The hijbab brought out her beautiful dark eyes. Anyway, I want it as a photo, because I intend to frame it and hang it in my living room.)

I took this photo today. I was on my way to the dentist and there they were, perched on top of one of my neighbor's rooftop. Luckily, I carry my camera with me all the time and was able to take pictures.

Here's another shot:

Which leads me to"Photo Trickery."  We are allowed to enhance  our photos. I did a  some cosmetic adjustments with the photo I took of Ambereen. I removed some shiny elements. Here's the original:

Here's a side-by-side exhibition of the photos:

Shininess removed

Here's the original vulture picture:

Here's another type of enhancement on the same photo:

I actually would like to enter this photo in the competition. I am hoping that it can be entered in the monochrome series. I know that the pink one is OK to enter as monochrome, but I have to clear this one, as I really like it a lot.
