I really like this cover because she is showing her personality through her body language and facial expressions. It also has excellent colors that bring out her facial complexion.

I like this cover because what guy doesn't want to look sharp, and JT knows how to do it. Also he's my man-idol.

I chose this picture because I like her face expression and the way she's sitting, its more unique than someone just standing there.

There are several reasons that I like this cover. First, all of the text does a good job of framing George Clooney, yet it is still easily legible. Second, The text is angled so that it looks as if it is all pointing at him. And third, because practically everything except for the magazine name is in black and white so the name pops out.

The lighting creates a black and white tonal balance in the photo. Also, his outfit and his hair are really fitting for a 70's rock group. The simple color scheme is appealing as well.

i pick ed this photo cause it was the one where things were actually happening. i know its standard for the regular looking into the camera thing or just profiles, but this one got my intention with the action and because of the intensity of the sillouette in front of the sun

I like this cover a lot because of how close up to her face it is, she is in a different angle than just straight on, the green colors makes it feel exotic and the pink and yellow stands out and makes it more interesting. I like the lightning, all the details and how sharp the picture is.

The photo is well composed and gives the viewer a taste of why he's on the cover.

This cover is my favorite because it really captures the intensity behind snowboarding. Also it has a great depth of field showing how beautiful the snowboarding environment really is.

I really like how there are three main colors black, white and red i sometimes don't want to be blinded when i look at a cover and its really bright i just seems cleaner and clam.

This is a great picture of Johnny Knoxville, it shows his personality great and it really shows that he his always in motion. Also the lighting makes the picture look bright.

I like this cover because it shows a rap group, but not just a normal rap group trying to act gangster, but a group that is acting like how they do on a daily basis. The photographer got a fantastic pic showing actions and faces that the artist are making. the magazine also had a good label for the picture explaining this group and you can tell by the actions that everything they said is true or close. this is a fantastic picture

I like this cover because of the cool sky and how the Skater is just a silhouette.

This picture has an interesting background, lots of color and a model running, showing off sports gear.

I really like this cover because it's unique and it seems like a difficult picture to get. I also like how it has an obvious theme and is interesting to look at.

I like this cover because it show emotion. Also because of what the subject is doing with his hands.

I like this magazine cover because its very simple. The lighting makes his face serious and really portrays the headline.

I picked this cover, because I love her look. Her make up is different and it just makes for a very unique looking picture.

This cover strikes me as interesting because of the use of color, mysterious lighting, and the meaning behind it.

I like this not only because he is a favorite artist of mine but, because the photo embodies not only him as a new up and coming artist. But also makes fun of but still brings up the topic of the royal wedding which also is big news across the globe. So it brings almost two topics to the table. Lastly, his attitude is always not caring about anything, so this is a great example shown by his facial expression, and outfit that he doesn't care about the "big news" of the royal wedding.

I like this cover because it shows them in the middle of a game and they are both glaring at each other. then the caption says "can MJ tame the weirdest guy in the NBA?" You get a glimpse of Rodman's weirdness by his red hair. Plus i like how in the top left corner it says "why the patriots don't win."

I like this cover because it is so simply composed, yet shows a lot of the personality that is the Beatles simultaneously.

I like this because it barely even showcases the fashion aspect, but I still feel like it sells them. The model's expression matched the outfit perfectly.
