I voted for Whisper To The Wild Water, because she stands there and on the background an beautifal landscape

I think it looks nice - it portrays a perfect mother showing love to her child. Every mum on the planet would love it!

I voted on Two Horizons, (well, because on my copy, i have Moya's autograph!) no, not only the autograph, but this is such a nice picture of her. She looks very young on it! And the dress she is wearing is very beautifull! The second best is the Máire, with the luuuuuvely baby on it,.. *sigh* I love babies :mrgreen: and the third best is WTTWW.

I voted for Perfect Time. Just cause ;) No, I like her sitting on that stone with the stonewall behind her and I recently saw such a beautiful version of this imagine. :mrgreen:
But I have to say it is very closely followed by Máire. I love the photo and I think it is one of the best photos of Tim Jarvis I saw so far. Really great artistic work. He just captured this magical moment of love and peace.

I voted for the WTTWW-cover, because I think that it fits the music very well. The bluish background looks very beautiful and the word that comes to my mind spontaneously when I look at the cover is 'spirit'.

:mrgreen: You don't have to be flattered, that always sounds a bit like: Oh nice, that you say that, but I don't deserve it. And that is soooo untrue. So it IS great artwork so if you can't find a place for it in your flat... :oops:
There is by the way another great Tim-Jarvis-Photo on the cover of Máire's book. When we are just in voting for artworks and photos.

I like WTTWW, but I prefer two horizons. I love the whole shoot a lot and the cover is amazing

Woah- Nigel, do you not think that's a bit harsh? Personally, I think there's no image more beautiful and pure than that of a mother and child.. to call it tacky is just beyond me! Whay on earth do you say that? :shock:

After careful consideration i think i was a bit too harsh, but its still my least favourite album cover. It reminds me of that Celine Dion album cover "Miracle" and thats not a good thing :lol:

I really liked the perfect time cover, so I voted for that one,
I like how she is sitting there in the middle of the ruines of an old building :)

I'm going for An Irish Christmas

It shows that Moya is modern and progressive and not content to sit on her laurels

For me her album covers have evolved with her music

As AIC is not on the list i've voted for 'Maire' for it's purity

I love it too- I always wondered where that was taken- maybe it says on the inside of the album cover, I must go check!! :?:

Ah yes that is my favourite too. I love the dress she is wearing there, and the thoughtful poses
