Looking for advice. I want to enter this in the 'People' category. I took the picture in town while this guy was waiting for tractor parts at the implement dealer. So it really is 'Street Photography' but the image does not impart traditional street photography concept.

In my small town tractors are a regular sight, but again, the photo does not impart 'Town' at all.

Suggestions?

  If nothing else....you could enter it in Catch All (Monthly Theme). If he drove it into town, and you were "on the street" when you took the shot, I would think Street Photography (People) is also appropriate.

  Up to 10th for me but I must say it's very disconcerting to see the new sub-themes on the old images . . . so a photo of a bird now shows "Bugs".
I have suggested in other threads that you put the full category on your image when you upload and it's quite obvious to me that I will need to be vigilant about that or I'll get completely confused.
I am also wondering whether the April EP's reflect the April sub-themes - but there's no real way that I can see to determine that.

  I feel ya, Nikki. I am very confused about the new monthly (theme) Categories! I thought for March that the entries for "Animals" were ALL supposed to be "Birds" for that category (for example). And yet, when I looked at the 2nd Place winners, some were dogs and one was a lion! They were great images, but were not birds. Are the new monthly theme categories merely "suggestions" for any particular category?

  No, the special themes didn't kick in until April 1, Cary, so the March winners should have much variety. It's the April Finalists and Winners that should be all Birds for Animals, for example.

The problem is that at least so far there doesn't seem to be any programing in place that switches the sub themes AND those sub-themes show for March when they weren't even in play.

  Thanks Nikki. I was confused and just assumed that THAT aspect of the website programming would be in place when the "new" monthly categories went into effect. A new visitor to the site would certainly be confused/amazed if they looked at the March Winners for each listed category!

  Up to April 6th for me, but then, I didn't enter anything for April 7th through April 19th.
Was a bit disappointed that my April 5th entry in the Abstract category, Corrugated VI, was skipped. I thought it as an okay abstract. :(

  12 of mine are EP's. A few didn't make it, but they were personal faves and probably not really contest worthy. But that's ok. It can be so subjective.

  Hard to tell on mine because I missed several days between about the 17th and 22nd, but I did pick up a few and the two that I know were skipped are really no surprise :)

  26 out of 30 but one was a mistake - I re-entered a finalist from last month (operator error LOL). Two of my skips don't surprise me at all, but the other two have me scratching my head :)

Well, I actually have 31 because when I put my March links in the Countdown thread, the system automatically re-entered them into the April contest. One went nowhere, so I deleted it; but the other actually got a gold. I sure hope it doesn't lose that because now it's a dog in the April birds category!

  20 out of 27 entries. Pretty happy with that. The few not chosen are no surprise really. Just some favorites of mine. 😉

  26 out of 27 EPs for me. Apparently, one was not what they were looking-for under Architecture; it was a resubmit, anyway. Good luck in the coming rounds, everybody!

  8 out of 10 EPs for me. Not a bad "batting average" but, like Nikki, I'm scratching my head over my two that were skipped. Oh well, art is subjective...
Good luck to all !!! :)
