September 2011 Countdown Thread


Happy October everyone! It's that time of the month again - time to start wishing and hoping on our favorites and waiting for the judges to decide which images to reward. We are all going to be on pins and needles for the next week or two - so...choose a favorite to share (instructions below) and then grab a cocktail and chocolates - sit back and let's all get each other through this!!! Smiles to 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!!!

Fingers crossed for one and all! Here's one of my favorites - my friend brought her little pup over, and she was quite the poser.

I have high hopes for this one and its in the DD category where I usually do not fare well. Hoping this month changes all that.

Good luck to all of you for a month full of appreciation of your images by the judges.

  Wow... I forgot to post my Sept. favorite into this thread---and just now, Finalists came out! A small number this time; 639. Congratulations to those who got one! I did, but not at all what I would have guessed!!

  Same here, Christopher - one, but not what I would have expected. However, all of my finalists (not that I've had many) have been a surprise!

  One for me, too. Definitely not one of my favorites, but then they usually aren't..funny how what you like isn't necessarily what everybody else likes.
