Top 10 Photos: Vote for Your Favorite Green Photo


In our second Top 10 Photos post, I wanted to do an image search on the word "green." With St. Patrick's Day coming up, photographers are obsessed with capturing images that show the wearing of the green, green beer, anything Irish, etc. But I wanted to find the 10 best - in my opinion - photographs that incorporated some aspect of green in the image. I've not put these 10 in any particular order - that task is up to you. Use the survey at the end of the post to vote for your favorite "Green" image. Thanks for voting and check back soon for another Top 10 Photos vote!

St. Patrick's Day Special - 5 Scenic Places to Take Photos in Ireland

Now is the time where everyone is transitioning from "seeing red" for Valentine's Day to "being green" for St. Patrick's Day, we thought it would be good to remind all photographers that there is much scenic beauty to be had - and great photo opps galore - in lovely Ireland. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones to be celebrating St. Patty's Day on the Blarney Stone side of the pond, we suggest you put these sites on your itinerary.
