August Count


August Countdown Thread
Welcome to the Agust Countdown Thread.
With our Little Granddaughter born on 8/1/18 I was primed to see the Baby Theme Category come up. Did you have a favorite category last month! Did you have a favorite photo last month???

Now is the time to share one or two of your favorite photos from last month. There are so many fabulous photo posted on BP. So many very inspiring works of time and talent. I like this thread because its purpose is for each of us to show case your individual photo that you believe is your best or that you feel is most representative of your inner self. So... let's see your personal best!
*If you are a regular here you know what to do.
**If you are new to this thread, take some time to read our helpful hints below and join in the fun.
*** If you found yourself here because you are lost.... Hmmm.., Don't worry, this is not the Hotel California, you can escape!
Some helpful hints for attaching photos into a BP Forum Thread, if you're unfamiliar with the process:
1) Sign into BP. IF YOU HAVEN'T entered the Contest for today, you can use the "Photo ID" method to pull an existing image (from your Member Center) into your reply here.
a. Jot down the PhotoID # of the photo you wish to share. To determine your PhotoID, go to the little Pancakes icon, then click “My Photos”, then “Manage/Enter.” The PhotoID is right below the number.
b. Go to the Countdown Contest thread. Click “Respond” at the bottom of the page.
c. Type in whatever you wish; e.g., “Here’s my Fav image for the month.”
d. Click the “Select” button below the text input box, and select “1.” Toggle on “Notify” box if you wish to be notified. Click “Submit.”
e. The Image Uploader appears. On the right-hand side, you’ll see an input box for the PhotoID (from step 1a). Type it in then click “submit your photo.” Then, return to the forum thread and you’ll see your photo.
2) IF YOU HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest for today, you can't use the Photo ID method *today*. Either wait until tomorrow to reply here first, or upload a copy of the image (from your PC) and attach to this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
3) If you're uploading a duplicate, I suggest titling it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later on. This can also help nudge BP viewers to go find the original image in your gallery, if they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, first try to tell if it is a duplicate upload. As a courtesy, try to find the original image in the member's gallery and leave your comment there instead of on the duplicate... which may one day be deleted.

I saw these beauties from a dirt road traveling near South Point Hawaii. What I didn't see was the knoll and barbed wire fence that would be in the frame when I got close enough to take the shot. Ended up having to climb the knoll and hold the camera over my head, hoping for the best. Several shots and some cropping later, this is the result. Next trip, I will have to include a ladder in the luggage!

I'm certainly ready for the August countdown, although I thought I had some great shots entered which were just passed over for the Editor Pick ... Here is one which did make the cut that I hope will advance:

Reworking an image from an old trip to San Antonio to fit the theme this month. A little help from Topaz filters brought this up a notch or two and gives it a soft nostalgic look. I wonder what this old fat-tire bike looked like back in the day and wonder how much fun it was to ride!

I got 10 out of 15 EP's. Not bad. I've been really busy and haven't been able to get here much. I haven't even entered for September yet. 😲. But here is my son holding my granddaughter that is an EP. My favorite for the month, but that's a personal attachment thing. 😉

  SUCH pretty babies all around! I do not have grandbabies yet, and I'm actually OK with that for right now LOL, but I do enjoy seeing other people's. You're all blessed!

  My Spotted Ponies (above) missed Staff Fav, but the Memory Garden effort (up there at the top of this thread too) received one. Yay!

  If your personal favorite photo did not get a Staff Favorite (like mine didn't!) now is the time to share your favorite Staff Favorite.
