Who Should Be Chopped?

Have you ever watched Chopped?

It’s a show where contestants face off in a culinary competition and after each round one of them is “chopped” and sent back home.  The last one standing is awarded the title of “Chopped Champion.”

Well, I need your help.  My husband’s company is having a photo competition and I have been urged to enter.  Each contestant is allowed to submit six pictures.  I have narrowed it down to seven and need to decide which one to chop.

Here they are –


Pine Warbler


Tufted Titmouse

Blue Jay - the peanut thief

Green Heron at dusk

Baby Bluebirds

Goldfinch in the early spring

So – which one should I eliminate from the competition?  Is there one I should definitely enter?
Thanks for your help!

  1. Love your photos and they are all great. If I had to rate them I would have to put the Tufted Titmouse as my favorite and the Green Heron as my least. Good luck on the contest!

  2. Wow Kathy, this is hard! They are all great photos. If I must choose one to cut it would be the Green Heron. I just like the other photos more. My favorite, a tie between the “Snowmageddon Blue Jay” and the “Baby Bluebirds” saying “Feed Me, Feed Me.”

    The peanut-stealing blue jay is the one that I would chop.

    By all means, enter Baby Bluebirds!

  5. Jeff Bradford says:

    My fav is the titmouse, I would eliminate the first one however they are all excellent. Baby blues are great shot too.

      Thanks Jeff. I almost didn’t pick the titmouse picture to enter, but a lot of people seem to be picking it at as there favorite. What do I know???

  6. Terry Hoyt says:

    you need to add the mockingbird in the rain.

  7. kathydoremus says:

    I wish I could enter that one, but it wasn’t taken within the contest time frame.

  8. Bill says:

    All of them are wonderful, but I would chop the pine warbler.

  9. Julie Shields says:

    I would omit the Green Heron photo. They’re beautiful, Kath!

    Thanks Julie. This blog has been a gift from God to me. 🙂

  11. Sue says:

    I’m glad I didn’t have to make that decision! I like them all.

  12. kathydoremus says:

    Looks like the Green Heron will be getting chopped!

  13. I’m probably too late to give my two-cents worth – but the one I would eliminate would probably be the blue jay with the peanut. My favorites are the snowmageddon blue jay and the spring goldfinch in the rain. I think they are all fab, though! 🙂

    I have a soft spot for bluebirds so my vote goes to them, but all pics are amazing!

  15. kathydoremus says:

    The bluebirds will definitely be entered. 🙂
