  Bob, don't give up on the 3rd or 4th just yet. From looking at the EP link (http://www.betterphoto.com/gallery-editors-current.asp), the latest EPs I've seen are from April 3rd. And no one has reported an EP for the 4th, on this thread.

A couple of days ago, folks were reporting EPs for the 2nd, but it took two more days before I got an EP for the 2nd. Meaning, you still might get an EP for third.

  Highlighted Comment: I was looking at my entries for this month and realized that I don't know, with confidence, where to enter some of my shots. Elements of Design and Man Made are confusing to me. I still miss the Catch All category. It is like the junk drawer in the kitchen.....when in doubt, throw it into Catch All. This may have been a problem for BP,though.

  Just got one in the junk drawer - uhhh - Man Made category. Could have easily gone into T&P or, of course, C-A.

But they skipped the 2nd which saddens but does not surprise me :)

  Very flustered. Have entered 8 and not one EP. I thought I read form BB that they were going t be more generous again. I definately dont expect every shot that was the case a couple years ago but 0 for 8. thats aweful. Hopefully my photography isn't really that bad. Its of course just a hobby for me but still like to think I can occasionally take a photo that is ok.

  1st and 3rd for me, too, though a skip on the 4th wouldn't surprise me. I'm actually more interested in their going back for a second look at the March EP's :)

  Jackie, in my opinion you take more than the occasional photo that is better than ok. I wish we knew who does the judging and what they're judging on.

I haven't had an EP since the end of Feb. but in fairness to them, I stopped entering as a result of frustration and then entered two at the end of March which were both skipped. The one I entered so far in April is from the 4th.

  Well, I was worried my photography really got bad....but I guess 8 out of 14 is not too bad. I just don't have time to put on an image every day. (Care taking for my mother) I'm like Carolyn, there are a few I really loved that didn't get Eps....

  Are we still not allowed to re-enter pictures to the contest? I didn't get a single EP for April and I feel like several of my entries would have deserved at least an EP. Maybe BP isn't the right place for a wildlife photographer. I thought I had improved, but I'm getting fewer EP's those days.

Wild Flower

Not only is the wild onion, or allium, a wildflower, it's a wild flower!
This one has burst open and is just about to send out tiny flower stalks.

  Well, if they passed through a second time, they didn't pass through me. Nothing more than I already had.
None yet for May either. Boohoo.

  Everything "new" that I see reported is for the 6th or earlier. Maybe they only got through the first week or not even.

  The word from Jim is:
we have a lot more EPs coming for April. My team may even be working on them this weekend or early this week. Hang in there.
The competition is steep... especially in the Flowers category. There are simply so many awesome high-quality close-ups of flowers. This makes it what Galen Rowell called a "mature" subject that then requires even more unique and eye-catching compositions and treatments.

  I got one for the 17th--Bubby--but more exciting for me is a first place win in pictorial category that I received at camera club tonight. It's my first award.

  Thanks, Usman and Joannie. No, Joannie, he had to compete with cute furry little ducklings so Buddy didn't make it through. My textured rose was one of the three in that category for my level. Each judge got to pick a final image out of all the winners for the season.

  One of my two favorites was entered on the 20th and still doesn't have an EP. As Usman and Carolyn have both reported for the 23rd, I guess I can give up on that.

A Serious Fellow

The American green tree frog (Hyla cinerea) is about two inches long, and lives mainly in the southeastern United States.
This little guy was sleepily lounging on a dry reed in a wetlands area near Houston, Texas.
He was a docile subject, but I couldn't get him to smile for the camera ... :)

  Yep, just got one for the 30th. I reckon they have finished. I was picking them up left and right through the middle of the month but after the 16th, I didn't pick any up until the 30th (skips on the 20, 22, 24, 27, 28 and forgot to enter on the 29th).

  I'm also thinking they may be done, or close to it. Hopefully we'll see Staff Favorites in the next few days. Best of luck, everyone!

  April 30 - The Bright one - DD

That would make 23 EPs out of the 30 entries for me in April. That is actually more than I was expecting earlier ;)

However, my two favorites of the month were again skipped ;(
(which are now going into the resub folder).

I guess that is just like life, its a mix .... can't have all the happiness or all the sorrow!!!

  I also ended up with 23 of 30. They got most of the ones I thought would get one. Just one I think they missed. I have a similar one from the same batch I'll put up later.

  Glad they went back and did another round. I ended up with 14 out of 26...much better :-)
I was getting very discouraged until I heard from Jim about some of the new things they are working on for "The New BP..."I can't wait to see what changes are coming :-)
