  The ones I liked best didn't get EFPs, so I don't know what to pick. Maybe the "hungover" dog from the first, and any of the sunsets.

Well, this is the first month in 3-4 months that I have posted many photos and can hope for a finalist. I have been really busy with tutoring and other things and had not been out taking any photos, but then in January, Justin and I went on a camping trip to Tallahassee, and we went to a model shoot in Ybor City. Also, Justin got a new hair style and blond streaks, so I persuaded him to pose for me one day. So I have to post a photo of him as my most favorite, and then one from my model shoot. I have several other favs too but can't post them all!

Oh Wow! I'm not trying to brag, but last month was a really good month for me. Seriously, I am having such a hard time choosing just one. I guess based on comments it would be this one.

Good luck everyone!

Got a few favs, but don't have a strong "winnin' feeling" on any of 'em.

I like this one; not sure I should've entered it in D&M, though.

(For the MT category, I liked "The Protege," too. #6079645)

Good luck, everyone. I've got brownies with Kahlua and extra chocolate chips in the oven... Should be ready to pass around in about an hour!

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Watching
Watching
Something bold and different for me. Reminds me of the song lyric, "I always feel like somebody's watching me."

I'm trying to take an SP a day this entire year (missed one day already - darn!). Anyhow, it's a little more difficult than I thought to not be completely boring and take the same shot all the time. And, this day, with no make up, I was NOT feeling particularly beautiful. I do however, usually like my eyes. Well, I took the shot intentionally close, but did crop a bit. Then, I could not stand all the wrinkles (when did I get so old?). So, I started messing with healing brush, gaussian blur, airbrush filter. Well, before trashing the whole idea, I decided - hey - how about a texture! If you can't beat the wrinkles - then make the most of them! So, I applied a texture layer and blended to taste. Voila! Different - but, it's me!

Good luck to everyone! January was an up and down month for me. And, I actually accidentally deleted one image that was in the running while I was cleaning up my website - OOPS! Still...I have some favorites for sentimental reasons of course, but I'm actually going with one that is totally out of the norm for me. Hope I don't jinx it! Here it is...

  Thanks Elida for picking my Lily Moon.

I think this would be a fun thing add to the thread. We should all pick each others and see who's comes closest to what gets the Finalists.

(for some reason when I click on your picks both the picture or the link it doesn't open it up???)

  Thanks Elida for picking my little tree. It's the last chance for this one, the tree went down in the last ice storm a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't the prettiest tree, but it was in a great location right at the top of a little rise from the beach, so shooting up at it made it look better.

  Elida, thank you for picking my image Surreal. That is another favorite of mine! And Ann, you are so funny about Hershey and his jammies! I do think he is cute in them too...wish you could see him in person (dog??) LOL And Bold more than Sassy...I liked both and it was hard to choose. I guess I like the hair blowing in her face on Sassy. I just hope I get one finalist at least because I haven't gotten any in months, but then, I haven't entered much either! Good luck all! I have to work in the morning (sub teach) so have to get in bed so it will be tomorrow or the weekend before I can look thru the photos here and comment. So bear with me! I love all the ones I have seen so far in this thread, although I have not had time to click on all the links.

  Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our galleries and pick and post your favorites, Elida. What a great idea for sparking up the thread. I'm glad Winter Pier caught your eye -- I took it last year and the composition has always pleased me but somehow it lacked pizzazz. I got Topaz Adjust recently and I thought a touch of that filter really enhanced the colors and lines. Thanks again.

  Thank you , Elida...we've chosen the same as my hopeful for the month. I have others, especially my Frost on the Farm, that I believe are better images, but having to think like a judge and consider the competition levels in the different categories, I came up with the same conclusion as you. I went without a finalist last month, so hoping for one this time around. Crossing fingers for ALL of us!

  So, when will the finalists be out?
My guess is Tuesday.
In the meantime, have a brownie.
(I just baked a fresh batch.)
♥Smiles, Lisa

PS: My secret to rich, fudgey brownies:
Use a package of brownie mix. Use one less egg than required on box. Replace egg with 1/4c Kahlua. Use brewed coffee instead of water. Throw in a handful(or more)of chocolate chips. Remove from oven about 5 minutes less than the box says.
(When we were dating, my hubby and I would try to bake the best... everything. 'twas an ongoing friendly competition between us. We eventually came up with this recipe for brownies. Came up with a pretty good chocolate chip cookie recipe, too.)

  I made them. OMG they are so rich my teeth screamed of sugar shock every time I took a bite. LOVED IT!!
Next time I think I'm going to add a caramel swirl. Everyone should add something and we can make the most killer brownies around. If we don't win with are photographs we'll win for sure with our brownie recipe. LOLOL

  Hi everybody!

Lisa, those brownies sound amazing. :) I've been away from BP a lot lately, and I only entered a few (not great) photos in January. So I'm not expecting anything. But that's fine 'cause I'm still riding high on December's results. ;)

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say GOOD LUCK, EVERYBODY!! And remember the magic word: resubmit! :)

  I am sure all of you here can tell me what happens when you get a finalist since I would not know; I am working on that issue and eventually I will luck up and get one and my chances are better for February since I am at 10 EPs already. Do they send all the finalist an e-mail notification before listing the finalist on the BP site? In other words, who is the very first to know when finalist are out?

  I got two! One I thought had a good chance (Three stooges and a friend) and the other (Standing at Attention) a nice surprise!

  Thank you Eldia.....


Again, congrats to all, which is the same thing I have to say month after month...lOl....

The style of my photos are so different than what the BP judges are picking.. at this rate I will never get finalist.

I see alot of people who have stunning photos here did not get a finalist...

  I got one.
Funny thing, for three months in a row, I've gotten finalists for the one I picked as my 'hopeful' on this thread the previous month.
Said once again, "Re-submit."

  You did get one? Great, that is so wonderful. Please don't anyone here take me the wrong way and I don't hold any reservations for the ones of you who did in fact get finalist. I am always extremely happy to see you all get rewarded for your hard work. I am just sour about myself and just want to feel as if I fit in with all of you who produce some of the most amazing photos that I have ever laid eyes one. You all never stop surprising me with your talents. I love coming here seeing what everyone comes up with each month.

In reality I don't need BP to validate my talent to the rest of the world but it sure would feel great to accomplish an inner satisfaction by progressing to the next level.

Again, congrats to all who did get finalist this month and I will cross my fingers for all of you in hopes that you advance further and perhaps a win. But of course only one of you can win the grand prize.

Tammy

  I'm still in shock! The ones I wanted to get didn't and the ones I thought didn't have a chance in Hades did.

  I've just discovered this forum and I'm not sure exactly what it is for....do members post their best images (3??) that they hope will make the contest finals, or is it for something else?
Also, I followed the link to finalists - on this forum- for Jan., but I am unable to locate it from my Member Center....Can anyone give me directions for how to locate the finalists for future references??? I really like looking at them for inspiration!!!
Thanks!!!! gretchen :0)

  Congrats to all who got a finalist and congrats on everyone who entered! Just because we don't receive a finalist doesn't mean that our photography is unworthy. I had a lot of EFPs this month, but only one finalist. I didn't choose it as my favorite here, but it was a hopeful as many of mine were this month. You can never tell about the judges. Resubmit though if you believe in your favorite(s); many times they go on to win a finalist later. I submitted one three times before it made finalist. Maybe they finally gave it one because they were sick of me entering it! :D I will try to begin going thru the finalists tomorrow. And Elida, love the hearts!

  I can't complain too much. I've had a ton of finalists and quite a few winners in my time on BP..Not that I don't like to complain, because I do, but my time seems to be over and somebody else will get the benefit. I guess that's how it should be.

  Sounds like fun Elida can't wait. I don't delete them but I do move some to the back pages. There just isn't enough room at times.
