I'm not shocked the passed on my first two entries, but they passed on Mr. Eisaman (the chocolate of Gideon I had posted on the club recently). O'well resub because I disagree! And this one was passed on last month, but got one this time! :P

  aimme how do you know they passed on [the adorable] mr. eisamann? I am so clueless about the inner workings of this contest! is it b/c you got an ep on something you submitted after? typically how many days after you submit somthing do you get the ep?

Agreed, this has been a very difficult month. Something may have changed with the judging but sometimes the month can start out difficult and get better. I think they switch out their judges at least twice during the month.

  Debbie...WTG on your EP...hey I noticed you uploaded this image on 4/1...when did you enter it? Reason I ask is if you uploaed the image last month and entered it this month...then the notion of you uploading images and then entering on a later date ...that image is passed up when judging is done...doesn't hold true. Right?

  Hey all!! Just wanted to say congrats on all of your fantastic work this month!!! I've had ZERO luck when it comes to EPs this month but I'm making it a personal challange to start shooting more images and working to post something new everyday next month...figure if I'm only going to improve if I start doing something!! :) So, maybe I'll be joining in soon but in the meantime keep up the AWESOME work!!! :):)

  I have done about half as well as usual this month. Kind of disappointing but oh well...can't do much about it. And it's some of my better ones that aren't making it...no lions or lionesses at all.

Not sure about the crop here or the brightness of the petals. Can't seem to get this without a bit of blown out spots. Ideas?

  I'm floored. I managed to get two Finalists this month, and one in a category I haven't cracked before: landscapes. Just getting the finalist will be enough. The landscape one was for "Pastel Light of Dawn" and "Right at Home" was for my kestrel. At least I think that is what he is.

Congratulations to both Christie and Michael.

I am going to go put them in my gallery. I've already entered for today so can't show them here now.

  Sharon you definitely should reenter the frog if it does not pick something up - such a great shot. Congratulations on your sunset though. I think we may see it again.

Jodi congrats on the EP for your excellent wedding shot. You did such wonderful work hope to see some more as you finish your edits.

Anthony congratulations on your EP also.

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Kestrel Attack
Kestrel Attack
We have a Kestrel house attached to the second story of our house. This is the second year in a row they have occupied it and raised a family. This year they are very protective and have started to attack us if we are in the yard. Hard to get a good photo when ducking and hitting the ground, but here is my most successful attempt to date.

  How exciting, Michael - Your EP and your kestrel. Just what, exactly does a kestrel house look like.

Sharon, I think your frog is wonderful. So is your sunset but I'm thinking the frog definitely needs another try.

Isn't it nice how an EP comes along when you need an "atta-girl?. We have seen your expertise in portraits grow phenomenally over the past year. Congrats!

wow has this thread gotten long. I can't wait to go see everyone's images. jodi, mike, tony, debbie congrats!!!

i guess I was disappointed too quick. the frog has been tagged as was the bleeding heart image I was working on awhile back - remember the one where we said "hey let's clone out those side flowers." I finally got to it and submitted it.

  :~) got 8 EPs this month which is below my goal of 10 per month, but I can't complain since they have been very hard to come by for everyone! I'll be posting a link to a new thread soon! Sorry I didn't comment on everyones EPs this month, but I did take a quick peek at them and they are awesome! So proud of the work my Phellos are doing! A fantastic group of Photographers!

  I managed to eke out nine, Aimee. I, too, like that double digit number. Funny, huh? It was a TOUGH month for sure. Here are my last two and if not for these I'd have only been at seven.
