February 2011 BP Countdown Thread


It's almost Spring...and here we go again! Pick your favorite from last month and share it here while we wait for the judge's to make their selections. I've got my fingers crossed for us all! And, I've got plenty of chocolates to eat while I wait! Smiles to you all!

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!!!

Beautiful capture, Shell. Spring has started to sprung here in Islamabad and my fave of the month is a Calendola flower.

Good luck to all of you for striking some finalists and later Golds!!

Some really nice choices here... good luck to everyone!
I'm breaking my own rule, and sharing 2; February was just about split between resubmits and fresh uploads for me, so my favorite resub (Aspire) and my favorite new entry (Ready To Row).

Aspire
A 3-exposure combination of the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, VA. The three arcs of steel-clad concrete evoke the spirit of flight, and the site
offers wonderful views of Arlington Cemetery, the Pentagon, and DC beyond. Each arc is a different height;
the tallest (center, here) is 270', while the other two are 231' and 201' respectively.
A 'regular' street-level view of the memorial is included in the discussion thread.

A rework from way, way back... The rowboats on the lake at Mohonk Mountain House, waiting for guests; it was an early favorite of mine,
just a year into photography when I shot it. Seeing it in my archives this week, makes me really want to go back for another weekend stay.

  My favorite is Feb 13th for this months entries. It an image taken a Pearl Harbor.

It an abstract with a human element in the image and it different than anything I ever seen taken and this has been photographed tons of times.

All my images are marked with date of entry so just check out my port.

  Hi Tony---don't know if you're trying to use the "PhotoID" method to place an existing gallery image in your reply here---but remember, you can only use that PhotoID method each day, if you HAVEN'T yet entered that day's contest entry. Once you make the day's contest entry, the PhotoID method will not work here until the next day.

  I do not... usually I think it is Dominick, or Elida, or some of the other folks who aren't based on the east coast of the US, who tend to get the final numbers just before midnight PST on the last day of the month.

Once the Finalist notices come out (this week, I'm guessing) those notices include a rounded count of how many entries were made in total.

Kay M. Sykes   There are so many beautiful and interesting pieces of photography that I have looked at.

February is my first month entering the photo contest. I tried to get something into every class. Yes, A few are Editor's picks, but I don't think my work holds water to others that I have seen. Good luck to everyone.

Ya know, I have the tingling too. It must be contagious.

  Welcome to BP, Kay. Looking quickly through your gallery, I think you are underestimating when you say "I don't think my work holds water to others".

I specially liked the masterful treatments and effects in your portrait work, I am sure this will attract attention of the judges soon. Good luck!

  Logically speaking February Finalists should come a bit early as about 1500 to 2000 less contest entries are entered as compared to January or March...!

Me too, I thought it will be early. But then expectations are there to be ...... broken sometimes!

  It would make sense... though if I recall (don't have my info in front of me) the January Finalists came out around the 10th of February! So by that standard, processing a 31-day-month, they're running late to release February Finalists! Maybe today... I'm breaking into the dark chocolate now, getting antsy! ;)

Surly today sometime..:) We have all been spoiled to these early release dates... Oh how soon we forget... It's been as late in the month as the 25th for finalist release.. I think... Chris would know..:)

  Indeed... the relatively recent BP development of giving us "fast Finalists" (only been that way for about a year now) has spoiled us to expect Finalists by about the 15th or so, every month.
But yes, prior to that development, Finalists rarely came out before the 21st, and once or twice it went as late as the 29th or 30th! Let's hope that isn't the case here...

  I hate to say it, but the 21st remains the most popular date for BP to announce Finalists, in my 63 months of tracking... But the 18th and 19th also have precedence.
Looking back, February results have come out increasingly later, on the following dates:
3/22/06, 3/22/07, 3/24/08, 3/25/09, 3/26/10---not a very promising trend, it would seem...

Fingers crossed... I'm about to make a cheesecake; I fear it could succumb to this impatient anxiety, not surviving intact to reach the potluck dinner tomorrow for which it is intended...

  It only seems that way---I have all the data in a simple spreadsheet, and I only have to add each month's stats, filling in about 5 cells, when they come out---the spreadsheet then tallies up how many were on Mondays, Tuesdays, etc., as well as how many were on the 19th, 20th, 21st, etc. ;)

  Thought for sure, being away from the PC for 7 hours this afternoon, that would do the trick... sigh. Off to bed, with hopes they come out overnight...

  Another day out of the house (this time, giving a tour of the cathedral to fellow BPer Janet Fikar and her family visiting DC) to pass the time, yet no Finalists thus far... sigh. About the only safe bet now, would be to say "I think they'll be out by the 31st." ;)

  Congratulations to all the finalists. Best of luck in the round.

I got one in travel and place entitled Walkway. It was taken on the big Island of Hawaii at our hotel.

It is first in my gallery.

Melinda, your comment reminds me of a line from Star Trek, Spock saying "You may find, that having a thing is not so pleasing as wanting a thing." ;) A wise Vulcan...!

  Oh my gosh! I got a finalist! I'm jumping up and down!! I've only received one before, and it was several years ago. I almost didn't enter the one that received finalist!

Anyhow, I'm excited. :)

Oh - It's "I Can See It in Your Eyes"

  I got one too, but not the one I had posted here. I think this is the first time, since I joined this thread, that NONE of the above hopefuls got picked by the judges, weird isn't it!!!

CONGRATZ to all who managed to snag one or more and good luck up next
