October 2010 Countdown Thread


Hi everyone! It's November, we're into the holiday season (did everyone have a Happy Halloween?), fall and nearly winter in many parts of the US and abroad. For those lucky enough to be in the Southern Hemisphere - it's almost summer - ENJOY! And, once again, it's time to bide our time while we wait for the judges to go over our work and pick the finalists and winners from October. Here's to hoping we all get some early presents this year!

And, since Chris B. reminded me that we all need something to look forward to, and the next big thing is not until Turkey Day (only in US), we're all hoping for something to turn up a little sooner - some badges! In the meantime, we can all spend some time picking our faves and seeing what others pick for theirs! Above all, let's have some fun!

Helpful hints for attaching photos into Forum Threads:
1) Sign into BP completely (name + password.)
2) 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.
3) 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, upload a new copy of the particular image (from your PC) into this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
4) If you're uploading a duplicate, maybe title it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later... This can help direct viewers to find the original image in your gallery, when they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, try to tell if it is a duplicate upload. As a courtesy, try to find the original image in the member's gallery and leave your comment there instead of on the duplicate---that way, if the duplicate is deleted later, the comment history isn't lost.

Good luck everyone!!!

Thanks Shell for hosting this thread. I am going with a re-edit of one of my all time fave images.

Good luck all in the October Contest!

Time flies by, this time of year! Thanks for starting up the thread, Michelle! Halloween was a lot of fun--I went to a costume party as Henry VIII.

Here's my favorite new entry from October---I made a few resubs of past favorites, so I'm not considering those. And I had fun creating 3 composite "mosaic" images from my past Finalists and Winners, to celebrate my fifth anniversary at BP and my 1,000th Contest Entry, both occurring in October; but I kinda count those mosaics as "resubs" too ;)

I haven't done very well picking the ones the judges have picked the last few months, but, here goes nothing...my favorite from October was from a session with a family that I also took pictures of last year - all four children are beautiful, and Skylar has particularly dazzling eyes!

Good luck everyone!!!!

  Congratulations to all the Finalists---looks like this was a tougher month, with a drop in the percentage awarded down to about 4.9%. And one of mine this month was my pick for this thread; that hasn't happened in a long time!
Best of luck in the next round!

  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WINNERS!!!

Two months ago got 10 finalists but none of then got to win, and this month just one finalist, isn't that funny?

See you on a few weeks!!
