Countdown to August, 08 Results



Hello fellow Bpers Addicts.


Welcome back to the August Countdown thread.


In the past few days or Country has been pas for several important events in the both sides of the scale; in the good side we had the Democratic and Republican Conventions, no matter witch candidate in you favorite donít forget to VOTE in Novemver 4th.
In the other side we had the Hurricane Ike that barreled across a wide swath of Texas on Saturday, deluging the city of Galveston with a wall of water, flooding coastal towns and leaving extensive damage across metropolitan Houston.
Until the moment there were reports of as many as four people killed, but it could take days to search flooded homes to assess the full impact of the storm.
I ask all you, please pray for those who die and for and all the people affected by Ike.


Letís distract ourselves for a moment with the countdown.


Sign into BP completely (name + password.)

Niagara Falls, USA
Up close, tourists not only have a glorious view, but also experience the roar and the mist of these majestic cascades.
A feast for the senses!

I have a few favorites from August (my visits to Niagara Falls were very good to me.) I think this is my favorite. 'On Nature's Edge'(T&P)

Wonderful intro, Elida; both the statement AND your beautiful favorite entry!
Thanks for organizing this thread and getting us started on yet another month's nailbiting and chocolate indulgence!
Best of luck to everyone here!
Blessings, Lisa♥

Here is round two of playing with textures! Thank you Amber Skene for your help in my learning process!! :) I played with a few differnt versions of this, and think I like this one best. Added some old paper filter, removed some if it from her face, cropped image, and added saturation.

All advice, suggestions, and comments are welcome AND appreciated!! :)

Have a Happy Wednesday!!! :)

I participated in this thread for the first time last month. Being REALLY new to photogarphy I am a happy camper with each EFP I recieve with in a month. I have yet to reach the finalist level but I DO have a hopeful this month probably because it is close to my heart! It's my two year old learning how to blow dandelions...a moment I was fortunate enough to capture!!! We'll see how it goes but like I said...still a winner in my heart!! :) Best of luck to all!!

Elida, You are doing a wonderful job in continuing with this popular and what I think has become an integral part of ĎFree Photo contestí forum thread , though I donít enter in this thread but like to see how it sets the ball rolling for the upcoming contest result every month and the mood surrounding it.

I had 3 images that I though had equal chances to go farther, but I think this one might be the top. My "Bottles Galore" and "Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay" could be contenders as well.
GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE! Can't wait to see how many of these move forward.

  To funny Rob!! I never answer those types of postings. I think that's all they want is to try and get people "riled" up. Guess they're just not happy in their own lives. It's to bad and kind of sad as there are soooo many wonderful people here on BP it could uplift their spirits.

  Personally, I think he's a penguin in disguise. You know how they like to stir the pot. They are also the ones that hide the best candy at the bottom of the jar, just to watch you dump the whole thing out to find it.

This is a Chinese Crested taken today at Safety Harbor, FL during a 2-hour world-wide photowalk. The walk was initiated by Scott Kelby (who lives in the area and whom I actually met today). The rain from tropical storm Fay actually stayed away for our walk, but as you can see from this little dog's ears, the wind did not!

I suppose this one has to be my favorite of the month. This little dog's ears flying in the wind just make me smile. My other two favorites are One Magical Summer Night and the McCaw portrait.

Second I'd like to say it's REALLY HARD to choose one. I really love Op Art, Lily Twins and My Steel Magnolia* but my heart will always be with Phantom so he has to be my Number One choice.

Wonderful work as always, everyone. Time's getting near!
I had my best month ever. Usually I delete or hide at least 4-5 of my entries before the month is over, just because I am no longer satisfied with them. In August I entered 31 and they are all still on display (though I have moved one of them up with the September entries in my gallery as I re-submitted it in hopes of getting an EP).
For sharing, I think I'll pick this one that I like for its colors, simplicity and composition. Good luck, everyone!!

  Does anyone have an idea to kill some time until the finalists get out. I'm open to suggestions.

  99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beeeer!

OK, maybe that won't kill enough time.

  Well, I've really missed BP these past weeks, having been so busy with kitten-care and not able to comment on galleries or even enter the contest. I figured I was too busy to obsess about contest results ... but the other night I dreamed I got 10 finalists and 1 win! ROFLOL So I guess my addiction's still there, even if only in my dreams! :)

GOOD LUCK everybody!

  Woohoo! I'm so happy; I got 4, including two of my favorites. One of them was a resubmit, so you all know what that means: if at first you don't succeed, try, try again! :)

Congratulations everybody, and good luck in the next round!

  Congrats to everyone whose favorite received a finalist, or who received a finalist on another image and for those who didn't, resubmit! There are so many great images posted on here that I am surprised did not make it! So, maybe they were overlooked. I have received a finalist twice on an image that was resubmitted twice (so 3x in all).

You could always submit to microstock sites and make some money while waiting ;).

  Sharon, the finalists are out!!!

Some wonderful, wonderful images out there! (Not sure if I'm right on this but I think ?Mr. Contrast or ?Lucis Art are popular with the judges this month. Did anyone else notice that?
I really love the images made with those processes.)
Really happy to find out that I got four finalists this month. And two were re-submits. (Like Colleen said earlier: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!")
Congrats to everyone who entered this month!
Smiles, Lisa♥

  Huge congrats to all the winners!!! I bombed this month, but got the best news ever today. My eleven year old sheltie, Sky, who is in my gallery, had surgery last week. They were almost sure he had cancer, and the results came back today......all NEGATIVE! I know this is off topic, but I don't care. I am dancing with joy!

Again congrats winners....there are some amazing images in this group!

  Congratulations to all the finalists and good luck in the next round to everyone!

And...I'm officially a believer.

Resub, resub, resub! I had my best month ever and 3 of my 4 were on resubs with minor tweaks. If you believe in an image - keep believing!!

Way to go everyone!!

  WAY TO GO, WINNERS!! Especially those of you who are first-timers. Sometimes it can take a little while to get that coveted gold, but I firmly believe if you work at it, everyone can win. See you next month!!
