Final Voting

This has been a lot of fun, and since it went so fast, we can get on with the final head-to-head voting. I saw that most of you (but not all, I know!) settled on the barn in the background (and it does look more western) and the gold (which does look more western). And it’s not the same gold as Dangerous Decision, I assure you. It’s very hard to take the official template from Kregel and photo shop it to try and find a decent color. My “hue” slider is limited, sadly. But Dangerous Decision is a much darker gold. Also, a lot of you liked number 1, but since the setting was outside, maybe you went with the inside barn setting because of that and so chose the original “gold 2.” So, now you get the chance to choose ONE MORE TIME.

All three are gold covers. All have the barn setting. Now, which one?

  1. Andi peeking out from behind Justin/Chad? (the most natural looking one)
  2. Andi in front of Justin/Chad? (I had to play around to make this one work)
  3. Andi in front of Justin/Chad and leaning on a wooden ledge in the barn?

They have their pros and cons. You can see more of Andi in #2 and #3, but Andi looks more “natural” in #1. Also, it was hard to remove those “light” stripes from the original Andi in the barn photo so it doesn’t look as natural.

On Friday I’ll share the BCC (back cover copy) along with the final cover!

To see what I am up against, here is the original Andi picture that I have used in #1 and #2. You can see the horse cut off her whole left side. I patched it from other pictures to give her most of her overalls, but the arm is very difficult to fake.

Next to the first picture is the original Andi picture I used for #3. You can see I have a lot of issues to overcome! See the stripes? Now you know why they are there. The sun is shining into this half-finished barn.

    1. Well, it’s not really out of focus. I upload low resolution photos so everything looks out of focus. The only reason the photo of Justin doesn’t look out of focus is because it came to me as a super-high resolution photo and even at low res, it will look better than the pictures I took years ago with a not so good camera.


  1. I saved up these votes so far and will continue doing so! 🙂
    Final Voting
    #1 Gold – 7
    #2 Gold – 20
    #3 Gold – 21
    #4 Gold – 0

    Looks like gold 2 and 3 are really close!!


    1. It’s tomorrow. Sorry. I changed it so I could add the final cover and post both back and front the same day. I wanted to give you guys one more day to tell me which cyber you like. 😉.
