September 2013 Contest Countdown


Greetings fellow BP Members! The days may be getting shorter, but it doesn't make the Contest Results come any faster, alas!

The purpose of this monthly 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.; often, this isn't always the image that you *think* will win, nor the image the BP Judges may 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.
So give your favorite a showcase here, tell us why you picked it, and join us in the countdown... Best of luck to everyone in the September results!

++++++++++++++++++
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.

My favorite is a carving from the Washington National Cathedral, high up amidst some of the worst earthquake damages. He seems quite upset by the earthquake ;)
This is a total rework from the original RAW - an improvement over the first version I originally posted some time ago.

  This really is making me buggy. There simply is no option when I'm doing this to put in the photo id number. So, once again, I uploaded it anew. I know that option has been there elsewhere and before, but it simply isn't now.

  Hi Mitch -- I think you had already made your still-life/Gone Fishing contest entry for today, before you came here and tried to embed your Favorite. (Your contest entry shows about 9:45am PST upload, while your first attempt here in the Forum shows 10:55am PST.)

The Photo ID method to embed existing photos, only works (each day) *before* you make the daily contest entry on that day. As soon as you enter an image into the contest for a given day, the Photo ID method will not work in the Forum until the next morning...

  Chris, thanks. I guess that's it. I thought it applied only if you were trying to post your entry of that specific day. Didn't realize that was the case for any image once you'd done your BP daily entry.

This is my favorite shot from September. I went to the Friends of Bodie day picnic with my friend Linda Ruiz a couple of years ago. We were allowed to stay long after the gates to the park had been closed to the tourists, until the sun set and got to go inside several of the buildings which are usually off limits. There were wonderful clouds and the sky was so blue!

I don't want to jinx my "real" favorite, so I'll go with this one instead - for a flower picture, I quite like it :)

Good luck to everyone else - and glad to see this thread, Chris. With the slowed official activity at BP on all fronts - not just the announcing of Finalists and Winners - the social activity seems to have crawled to almost a complete stop, too. I find myself forgetting to even upload my daily entry sometimes which never used to happen. Anyway . . . here's to the Staff Favorites, Finalists and Winners in advance. I know the pool will be filled with excellent images as always.

Late to the party here this month as I was away for work the first week and then got busy celebrating Eid on a very long weekend. But looking at the recent trend of late Finalist announcement, I am all right.

The favorite this month for me is actually taken by my Iphone and not with my dear D40.

Good luck to all in the September contest, which should be done and over with in the next 10 days or so, hopefully!!!

Our Side
The western span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, shot from the Embarcadero last month. This weekend it stands empty and idle, closed while construction crews work to connect the new eastern span on the other side of Treasure Island. The old eastern span was discovered to be flawed when part of it collapsed during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Meanwhile, the new span, while designed to withstand a massive earthquake, exhibited problems during testing, when 32 bolts snapped. Officials insist it's still safer than the old eastern span. I think I'll stay on this side for a while!

  Well, good luck, everyone. It's so late in the month now, they will have no alternative but to rush through the rest of the month and miss half the good ones. It's getting quite frustrating.

  For me, the worst part about the huge gaps in activity at BP is not that they end up rushing (though that is annoying), but that it has curtailed almost completely our interest in the site. I used to check in multiple times a day for all kinds of reasons. Now I seldom check in more than once or twice and would not do that if it wasn't for a critique club here that I really enjoy (FFFP Club if anyone is interested).

  Hi Tammy; yes, the Staff Fav's are new -- came out in July's contest. They are a new "layer" in the progression from Editor's Pick to Finalist to Winner.

From the pool of Editor's Picks, Staff Fav's are selected. Then from those Staff Fav's, Finalists are selected.

  Tammy, BP also has a labeling problem with on their finalist page. The August finalists are also labeled as September Finalists, which makes it very confusing. You probably went to the People category of the "September" finalists, but you were really looking at August finalists. Still confused? :-)

  Actually September was blank until the SF's came out. SF's are in categories just like finalist would be for the correct month, however if you look under people my photo is NOT there but it I got a notification that I had a SF photo and it shows in my gallery. Hmmmm Maybe there are not done loading all of them.

  You are correct, Tammy. Interesting. At first, I thought maybe BP had posted the actual finalists without the formal notification, by accident. But I summed up the # of SFs that are at this link. Only 150. That number would be very low, if it were finalists. So, it's a mystery but I do think we'll see more than 150 finalists. I believe there were 750+ Staff Finalists (going off memory as I don't have the notification e-mail at work). And even if they take half of those for finalists, it would be far greater than 150.

  Tammy, they've only handed out Staff Favs for three months now, I think. And they've never displayed them like they did this month. It's quite possible you're really seeing the finalists...only 150, which would be a low percentage. Time will tell.

  They are clearly labeled SF, however, it could be the finalist to come. If they only pick 150 finalist may do more harm than good unless they are trying to thin a crowd. They are a business and feel it would eventually drive people away leaving only the extreme best of the best to compete which most certainly would leave out any chances of myself ever getting to the finalist round. I would be FLOORED if they only picked 150 but then again, they have surprised us many times with hard changes. As you said, time will tell.

  By my count there are 111 winners selected each month, so I think that this must be a glitch as there are not enough in the pool to account for both winners and finalists.

This is just a guess, but I suspect we're looking at the finalist nominations of just one (or perhaps two) judging queues. The glitch is that it is publicly visible. Once all the judges are finished the badges in this pool should turn to finalists... assuming they system works the same way it did years ago.

  If this SF selection just started in July I really don't seen any of the August winners with such a badge. Surely the staff would have liked many of the winners. This is confusing for me.... hmmmm

  The badges get replaced at each phase. The staff picks are essentially Semi-finalist. If it moves on to become a finalist, it's no longer a semi finalist and the badge is replaced. If it doesn't move on, it keeps the staff pick badge, presumably forever.

  Tammy, if a SF gets a finalist, the finalist badge will replace the SF badge. That's why you don't see any SFs for the recent winners and finalists. Kinda like the gold medal replaces the silver finalist medal.

  But wait, why on earth would they add yet another step in the process with over 6000 photos a month to weed through? So does that mean only 1 of my 3 entries have the potential to move forward based on SF? Maybe I am just all mixed up and maybe that is why I enter very little these days...........LOL.

  Nobody really knows the mysteries of how/why BP makes the various contest decisions they make ;) The addition of Staff Favs as yet another non-Finalist, non-Winner 'badge' was a bit of a head-scratcher for most of us...

  Sorry if I confused people. I got the email yesterday saying I got a staff selection and there are 743 of them. Interestingly when I checked this morning 7AM irish time, I went through the finalists link and saw September finalists. They were adding pictures live as I watched the number in my Travel category increased as I was viewing them.

Sorry if I called finalists too soon.

  Has anybody actually got a finalist notice in their email? Weird.

  I suspect it is a glitch as mentioned above -- an accidental "reveal" for some (hopefully not all) of the Finalists, *before* the announcement is actually sent out...?

  Woke up to see 3 out of my 4 SF turned to Finalists. Very excited, as I had very little hopes of any of the four advancing further.

Good luck in the Final round!!

  Congratulations to the winners! You simply never know what will come out in the contest rounds... My favorite in this thread didn't even land a Staff Fav pick, but I managed a 2nd Place on something else ;) I kind of enjoy that its never predictable... Best of luck to everyone in the October results now... seeya in a few weeks!

  I agree with Chris. Most will not agree but I like the change in EPs and the new SF. Makes it more interesting.
