Making a choice

One of the greatest challenges I've been facing since taking up this hobby is paring down the selection to the "best" image.

I realize this is one of those "eye of the beholder things," but I presume some set of criteria can be used on just about any image to assess quality.

I'm pretty good at the obvious ones (WAY under/over exposed, out of focus, etc.), but what qualities make sense?

In the example set below, I probably shot 75-90 images, and was able to whittle down to the top 12 or so, which I uploaded to Flickr. From there, it's a lot harder, so I've been e-mailing friends and others I know who have good photographic eyes and design sense, and getting their thoughts as well.

What do you think? Have a look, and let me know ...
