Countdown to November, 08 Results


 
 

Hello fellow Better Photo Addicts.

Welcome back to the November Countdown thread.




HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.  - Augusta E. Rundel.


I't time for the countdown.

Sign into BP completely (name + password.)
If you have NOT YET entered the Contest today, you can use the "Photo ID" to pull an existing image from your Member Center into your reply to this thread (avoiding a duplicate image upload.) Get the Photo ID# from your Member Center, come to back this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, then choose "1" from the images-to-attach drop-down. Click Submit; at the next screen populate the "Photo ID" box at the right. Skip the other fields on that screen.
If you HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest today before replying to this thread, you can't use the Photo ID method today. You can either wait until tomorrow to reply here (before your new Contest entry!) or you can add a link to you photo, if you don’t know how you can learn
here or I can post the picture for you, all you need to do is ask.

Please don’t post pictures that are not belong to you, only when you have the owner permission to post it.

If you are not conform with the winners, you can express yourself, but please not direct attacks, we don’t want this thread to be removed from the regular flow.


 

Listen to your heart and post your favorite picture from October. Good luck to everyone.

  First thanks to Elida for hosting this awesome thread. It's been a wonderful first year on BP for me. I learned so much and met so many incredible people. Next year I hope to continue to grow and learn and maybe even more of you will venture out to Los Angeles and give me a chance to show you the beauty of this city.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO EVERYONE AND HEALTH AND PROSPERITY IN THE NEW YEAR!!

Next I have to say I just CAN'T DO IT. I can't pick just one or even two. I have a few animals I really love, a couple EoD I'm proud of and my canal pictures. So friends YOU MAKE THE CALL!! My EfP for Novemeber start on page 1 at "Green Leaf Peace" and end on page 2 at "Lily Eye" Tell me if you feel any of them are worthy of continuing on. I'm really curious which ones you'll choose as I just could not do it. I want them ALL to continue on!! Now that would be the GREATEST gift of all!!

In Memory *** Donovan***Beloved Lap Warmer
This is Donovan, he valiantly battled Lymphoma and we finally had to give him up after a weekend of loving on him. This is how I like to remember him, big, strong and content.

He had a great life, we have great memories and many, many cherished images of this wonderful cat.

Hi all! Had my worst month ever for EFP's anyway (it was a great month otherwise). I will go with a sentimental favorite. I am happy this one was noticed.

Check out our newest addition to the family, Cricket, in my BetterPholio. She is beginning to fill the large hole that this magnificent cat left in our hearts.

  I had five EPs for November, but Im not too hopeful for any of them. I had high hopes for one a few months ago, only to be disappointed. I will just enjoy viewing alll the other fabulous entries.
Good luck everyone.

  Elida Suicidal King is totally cool, Good Luck with it.
Great pick Diana Love it and hope it makes it through.
Leslie that isn't fair playing the heart string card...and making me cry!! Good Luck with your beautiful tribute to Donovan.
Susan Great pick and would love it see it make it too.
Elida see how different we feel about each others work. I would have to pick either my lion, tiger or Gazelle first. One of the Monterey pictures second. Then one of the canal houses or canal captures. And if anything makes it, it will most likely be the wine press as I have no emotional connection to that capture. LOLOL

I'm especially fond of my "Happy Birthday Kara" image but with it being in Details & Macro I'm not sure how far it wiil go, but it looks AMAZING as a 20.24 print in a black frame in my kitchen! So I'm chosing this one as my hopeful

  I think that disease is called CRS. Can't Remember Sh*t. And I think we all suffer from it starting at a certain age. I'm WAY past the starting age. LOLOL
Like the judges who forget they should be judging and not partaking in all those Christmas parties going on. Get back to work guys. We have to much chocolate and booze around this time of year for you to be taking so much time off. LOL

  I already entered today, so I can't post my favorite. And, I do seem to remember the finalists being early last year - thanks for verifying Ken since I don't always trust my own mind these days.

And, Vicki - I LOVE the bridge image, but you have it in your kitchen - does that mean I should fear your cooking? In that case, no chocolate from your house please - LOL! And, just so you know I'm totally teasing, I don't cook!

I'm wishing alllllllllllllllllll good luck and best wishes for a joyous holiday season!

  LOL, Michlle!!! No, it's not THIS one I have in my kitchen, it's my Happy Birthday, Kara image that's framed there. I could see why you would be a TAD bit concerned about entering a kitchen decorated with scary stuff....although sometimes there's things in my frig that are pretty frightening!!!!!

Hi All!

Yeah Jessica, I remember last year, too--the fewest finalists ever! But now that entries are fewer, it seems the finalists have remained at a steady percentage of submissions.

I'm late to the thread; I wouldn't be surprised if finalists were announced today. I only entered a couple of times last month; have been away from BP a lot, but here is my favorite.

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, and thanks for hosting, Elida!!!
