  I have a question. Where would I enter a photo of flowers blowing in the wind? It is a blurred effect made by moving my camera so not much was done in digital darkroom.... I remember that Carolyn had one similar to mine but was it in Catch All? Since catch all is now Man Made, it would not work there. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

  My guess is, if they are recognizable as flowers, they should still go in the flower category..if they are more abstract, maybe in EOD.. In your member center there is a link under "your photos" for how to categorize. I just read through them, and that's the best I can come up with.

  I went thru the N/L and flowers contest entries for May 2nd. Opened each one to see if it had an EP. For N/L, 39% got an EP.

For flowers, the EP rate was much lower, 6 out of 27 for 22%. Maybe they're still going thru flowers.

Assuming these EP rates don't change, they're lower compared to previous months. But the 2nd pass-thru could bring these numbers up.

  Sharon, I didn't get an EP either for the 4th, in N/L. So, I took a look at all N/L entries from the 4th. BP handed out 9 of 26 for EPs, with success rate of 35%. So, they are handing out EPs but at a lower rate than what they've done in the past.

  I know that this discussion is about the June EP's but I asked this question in the Q/A and only got one reply. Since I am not having a lot of luck this month,I guess these questions do pertain to the June EP's :-) I am hoping that my fellow photographers would answer a couple of questions for me.
1. What program do you prefer, Adobe or Lightroom?
2. What do you use for HDR ?
3. Is there a pluggin or program that would be best for florals?
Since joining BP I have had a lot of help and am hoping that I can get some responses to these questions. Thanks in advance. Feel free to use BP mail if you wish.

  Harriet, I've never used Lightroom; just Photoshop. And I have Photomatix for the HDR software. I also use NIK Color Efex which has various categories of effects; e.g., Nature, Landscape, Portrait, and Wedding.

  Harriet, I couldn't figure out how to respond in BP mail.

I use CS6 for editing. I've never had any use for Lightroom more because I don't need it for file organization so I don't really see the point in having it.

I use Photomatix and Nik for HDR. Sometimes Photomatix works better and sometimes Nik works better. I guess it just depends on the set of images I'm working with. Why one program works better with some images than the other is beyond me but that's my experience with HDR.

I'm not sure about floral images. I just edit those like I would any other image. I love pretty texture overlays, but rarely use them.

6/9..Landscape..The Rain! It's Insane!

I still use Photoshop 7.. And some filter programs, such as Topaz. Can't afford a Photoshop upgrade and am used to having to put out a little more effort to get what I want, so I'll probably be using what I have for the duration.

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   True Blue
True Blue

These brilliant blue little flowers are called Blue Daze, scientific name Evolvulus glomeratus.
They are of the Convolvulaceae, or morning glory family, so they are open early in the day and close up at night.
These little beauties live on my patio, and are quite tolerant of our very hot summers.
Minor adjustments in CS PP, and a bit of texture from Kim Klassen.

  This month has been an exercise in futility. Guess I'll crawl back in my hole again. It's pointless to enter when so many aren't even making the first round. As for May, I picked up one in the 2nd pass. 13 entries, 4 EP total. I give it to those of you who hang in there. I just don't see the point.

  Only one for me way back on June 4, although starting this month I decided to give up on trying to post every day and have only 8 entries so far. May isn't much better, with just 8 EPs out of 31 after what appears to be a second pass.

  Monnie, Sharon, Beth, Mitch, I hear you! I almost feel like not even bothering to post anymore...It is just so disappointing each morning to look and not see any EPs...I even wrote to Jim and asked what I was doing wrong...His reply that the Flowers category had so many entries that they were looking for truly unique images, really doesn't mean much when you look at the ones that have gotten EPs...Of course there are some stunning ones, but I see so many that are nothing special...I have given up trying to figure out how they choose. :-(

  This is a replay of what happened about this time last year. It ended up with our posts being deleted if they were negative. Thing is, in may I had 80% EP's but in June so far, I only have three. I have almost given up on flowers and the new categories have me confused. I feel that I have not entered photos in the correct place and this may have affected the outcome. The winners are outstanding for sure but I feel that some of my photos are good enough for EP at least and they have been skipped this month. It is frustrating. I will keep plugging away and hope for the best.

  What it will boil down to is are you having fun? If it's fun to just share your photos without any expectations then it's still worthwhile. I like to win occasionally though ;). I can't even remember my last win. BTW, no one should get all bummed because something is passed over. While that is disappointing I can say some of my best sellers with microstock the judges have just completely ignored, AND you're in good company :). Several have mentioned all the great photos passed over.

  I wonder if the powers that be are tired of reading all our complaints? That thought just popped into my head. Another thought I had was that maybe there could be a way for these contests to be anonymous. I don't know if it's possible but it would be interesting to see if that made a difference.

6/24 Details & Macro

This was my last entry for June, so that makes 2 out of 8 for the month. Yikes, that's my worst ever.

  Thanks, Jill and Joannie. I have never tried them. Maybe next time I see them I pick up a couple. Jill, what do they taste like? Are they tart?

Good luck on the second pass.

  I am doing so much better in June than May. But, I have been working so so hard at improving my photography. :-)

Have a very exciting 4th.

  Sharon, I think they're done with the first pass through. For the last few months, BP has gone thru them again, prior to Staff Favs being handed out and most folks have picked up a few more. Hopefully tthis 2nd look is now part of their contest selection process.

  I just noticed an EP on one that didn't have any before. It was entered June 1. No others though at this point.

  Harriet, for the last three or four months, BP has gone thru all contest entries a 2nd time...part of their new contest process. I know some folks that pick-up five or 6 new EPs. So, don't delete any more! :-) Usually, the 2nd pass-through is closer to when they hand out Staff Favs. Based on Mitch's update, maybe they're doing them earlier for June's contest.

  I picked one up, too. June 4. I never delete until after Staff Favorites are announced. I may undisplay, but I do not delete. You never know.

  Impatience, discouragement and frustration are bad emotions. No more deleting until after staff favs for me. I did pick up at least one from the ones I did not delete.

  It's been pretty close to the end of the month, Lorri. It comes right before finalists. Don't delete anything that didn't get an EP until the SFs are out. They go back through them a second time before SFs, so you might pick up more.

  Eight of about 26 for me. In the second round, nada, no means no. I'm okay with that. In May, I only got one Staff Favorite and it made POTD and then 2nd Place Gold. So, sometimes one is enough.
