Rodchenko, but I don't like that he beat Rodin.

Rodchenko has some fantastic pieces, but I'm less into his collages and design pictures. I'll go with Romney's consistently strong portraits.

Hmmmm...I get the idea these two would not have gotten along well with each other. I'll say Rodchenko.

Susan votes for Rodchenko by email.

I surprise myself by voting Romney, although I'd probably prefer OWNING a Rodchenko. If you were thinking about your holiday shopping, you know.

So that's five votes for Rodchenko, four for Romney, and one for neither, which by my math gives the contest to Romney. He'll take on Rodin in the Elimination Round.
