Yes, they are being slower in getting EP's out right now. It is about a week away from when they determin Finalists from last month. So it may be a while before they "catch up"again.

Congrats Jeff....can't wait to see which one it is! :~)

I got 2 finalists last month and I'm actually shocked at the ones that made it and the ones that didn't. I thought for sure that Rhapsody in Green would make it since it got published at the insanely difficult to get in 1x.com. And the two that I got I wasn't even sure would get an EP! Funny how subjective photography really is! It's fun though and I'm excited to add to my list of finalists on BP. I'm up to 9 now with no wins so keep your fingers crossed for me! :~)

Congats on your first finalist Jeff, its a great feeling to cherish..

WTG with 2 Aimee! I like them both but also thought Rhapsody surpassed them, you should def re-submit next month..

This is only my 3rd finalist and the first in 7 months so it it gave me a nice boost..

  I think I figured out where Rhapsody in Green went wrong. I had it entered in Nature&Landscapes. Today I'm rentering it in details and macro. I thought about animals, but the image is about the leaf and the worm...not just the worm. :~) Try try again! LOL :P

Yes, Rita. It has been a strange couple of months. I don't even want to tell you how many EP's I got last month but it was very disappointing that not a one of them was good enough to become a finalist. Then again, I've had months where I only got four or five EP's and two were finalists. So just keep at it. Some months will be good and others not.

I think they are giving less EP's this month so who knows? Here are my most recent ones.

Look at that! My first double goof of the week. Hopefully, the last.

So that one was "Bon Voyage" and I entered it 9/15 in Catch-All. Balloons seem to do well in that category.

This is
9/16 - It's My Pad - Flowers

What is this strange thing called anyhow. Surely one of you out there has a botany background...

Last one. One of my favorites of the shoot. She and her mom really liked what I gave her. She brought her lap top to our sorority meeting and we had a "slideshow" of my pictures.

  Thats a good idea Tony, but I would still have to look thru all my un-EP images to figure out which ones I entered and where they belonged. I think this month I will copy and paste my entry page to a word document on the last day of the month if BP will allow it. :~)

I accidentally entered the contest today before I posted my EP in the thread. But my Fall Motion photo got an EP in E&D category. I'll post the photo tomorrow . . . if I don't forget.

And thanks Aimee, for the motion challenge . . . it was fun.
