August 2013 Contest Countdown


 
  Wire Pass Logjam
Wire Pass Logjam
At several points on the hike through Wire Pass, you're reminded just how much debris runs through the slot canyon in a flood;
and clearly how bad it would be for you, if you were caught in the canyon during a flash flood, as part of that torrent of debris!
Where the slot canyon narrows, bottlenecks form with debris lodged in place. (Some hikers have survived floods by clinging
to tree trunks which sometimes get lodged 20 feet off the canyon floor.)

Greetings fellow BP Members...! Fall is finally creeping into the air (at least here in Virginia) and it is hard to imagine we're now counting down the days until the August Contest Results are announced -- truly a "summer's over" kind of moment!

Thanks to Michelle Frick for "hosting" this monthly countdown thread; over the years at BP, this mid-month countdown thread (aka "Chocolates and Cocktails" -- named for certain tools which may help members pass the time expectantly awaiting results!) has been hosted by a number of different folks--I offered to pick it up again from Michelle, after her recent run.

The purpose of thread is to share your one favorite image from your entries last month -- your personal favorite, or your most hopeful, or your proudest photographic achievement that month, etc.; which is, naturally, not always the image that you *think* will win, nor the image the BP Judges will be drawn to ;) It isn't about predicting your Finalists/Winners (although that's a fun trick when it happens here!); it is about sharing your personal best/favorite image here. (Case in point; my Favorite for August didn't even get an EP -- but it is certainly my favorite!)

Best of luck to everyone in the August contest!

++++++++++++++++++
Some helpful hints for attaching photos into a BP Forum Thread, if you're unfamiliar with the process:

1) Sign into BP completely (name + password.)

2) If you have NOT YET submitted your Contest Entry for today, you can take advantage of the "Photo ID" method (to pull an existing image from your Member Center into your Reply to this thread.) This avoids a duplicate image upload to your Member Center. Go get the Photo ID# from your Member Center first, then come to back this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, then choose "1" from the images-to-attach drop-down (even though you won't actually be uploading a file.) Click Submit; at the next screen populate the "Photo ID" box shown over at the right. Skip the other text fields on that screen, and finalize the submit at the bottom.

3) If you HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest for today, you can't use the Photo ID method *today*. You can either wait until tomorrow to reply here (before making your new Contest entry) or, upload a new copy of your 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.
If you're uploading a duplicate, I suggest titling it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later on. This can also help direct BP viewers to go 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, first 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.

Thanks for picking this up Chris!

I'm not sure I have a favorite (well, of the ones that got an EP) for August, but for the sake of picking one, I'll go with this one.

Thank you Chris for offering to host the thread again! With school back in session here, I just looked at my calendar and was shocked to see we are already on the 16th. It's 96 degrees here today which makes it very difficult to feel like fall will ever arrive in the South, but I sure hope it does! I'll miss the green grass, but this heat has got to go!

I'm so happy you will be moderating again! If I could, I would give you a giant thank you hug!

And, for my favorite - I'm picking a picture of my daughter and her best girlfriend. These two have been close since grade school and now they are starting high school together. I guess I blinked because I swear it was yesterday they were little!

I have watched this thread for a long time now and have decided to join in if that's ok. My favorite is this photo of my husband Mark's old 54 Willys jeep. An old jeep on a country road in the hills of Kentucky with an awesome sky behind as a backdrop. It was a perfect summer evening.

Thank you Chris for taking on the task of initiating this very interesting monthly thread. I so enjoy reading your thoughts and comments.

My favorite for the month is something different from what I normally shoot and don't think it will go past the EP anyways, but I like it very much so here it is.

Good luck to all in the August contest.

UB.

  Seems like at a glance, EP's are finally done for August - so perhaps we'll be hearing the Staff Fav's and Finalists for Aug later this week?
Fingers crossed -- and best of luck to everyone (whether or not your Favorite here is in the final running!)

Well, I'm going to try the photo id method here once again. I didn't know I'd even left part of the message earlier (and didn't get notifications of additions to the thread until I got one today). Didn't work last time, but . . . here's my most hopeful for August, Slingshot. Sparse month for EPs, with only 11 of 31, if they're finished.

I seem to be having major problems with this. Thing is, when I go to the next option after choosing 1 image, there's no place to enter the photo ID number, none at all. So, shoot, I'll just reupload.

Thank you Michelle for your time hosting this thread and to Chris for taking over hosting.

All great photos I see here, EP or not! Carolyn, I am rooting for Sammy and I'm so glad you shared his picture. I am so sorry for his tragic loss but it seems as tho he left many with good memories. What better job could any of us hope to do. :)

13 out of 18 for EPs so I am hoping to get a fav, finalist or winner! Its been awhile..hehe. Here is one of my faves that I posted on my bday!

The Welcome
This friendly chap welcomes folks to Bent's Old Fort, also known as Fort William, located near La Junta in southeastern Colorado. Two Bent brothers, William and Charles, along with Ceran St. Vrain, built the fort in 1833 to trade with Indians and trappers for buffalo robes. The fort was destroyed under mysterious circumstances in 1849, but it has been carefully and beautifully reconstructed and restored and is now a National Historic Site and a National Historic Landmark.

  Here's hoping for some announcements soon... Monday remains the most "popular" day for Finalists announcements to come out, over the last 8 years - but the 30th has only been "hit" once for Finalists, so we're definitely in late territory...
Fingers crossed for everyone!

  Hi Nancy - Staff Favorites are the pool from which Finalists are drawn now.
(Then Winners are drawn from Finalists.)

  Two Finalists out of the three SFs. Pretty happy about that, although my fav above didn't get picked (almost never happens!).

I see quite a few of you picked accurately, congratulations! Best of luck to all in the next round!

  Woohoo! I see 4 images posted here as personal favorites, that made it to Silver! Congratulations to those, and the rest who snagged a Finalist (even if it wasn't on your personal favorite shared here.) I managed 3 Staff Fav's, turning into 2 Finalists... Best of luck in the winner's round---wonder if that will be pushed out later tonight to keep it all on the 30th!

  Congrats to all the awesome finalists!!

Two of my three Staff Favorites went on to Finalist. One of them is my fav posted in this thread, and the other is my self portrait. I am especially thrilled about that one because it is my first self portrait ever!

Best of luck to all in the next round!
