April Countdown Thread


April Countdown Thread

Welcome to the March Countdown Thread. I am here a little early this month as I am packed up for a Spring Road trip and will be away from my PC. Yes, I am taking my camera bag!
Now is the time to share one or two of your favorite photos from last month. There are so many fabulous photo posted on BP. So many very inspiring works of time and talent. I like this thread because its purpose is for each of us to show case your individual photo that you believe is your best or that you feel is most representative of your inner self. So... let's see your personal best!
*If you are a regular here you know what to do.
**If you are new to this thread, take some time to read our helpful hints below and join in the fun.
*** If you found yourself here because you are lost.... Hmmm.., Don't worry, this is not the Hotel California, you can escape!
Some helpful hints for attaching photos into a BP Forum Thread, if you're unfamiliar with the process:
1) Sign into BP. IF YOU HAVEN'T entered the Contest for today, you can use the "Photo ID" method to pull an existing image (from your Member Center) into your reply here.
a. Jot down the PhotoID # of the photo you wish to share. To determine your PhotoID, go to the little Pancakes icon, then click “My Photos”, then “Manage/Enter.” The PhotoID is right below the number.
b. Go to the Countdown Contest thread. Click “Respond” at the bottom of the page.
c. Type in whatever you wish; e.g., “Here’s my Fav image for the month.”
d. Click the “Select” button below the text input box, and select “1.” Toggle on “Notify” box if you wish to be notified. Click “Submit.”
e. The Image Uploader appears. On the right-hand side, you’ll see an input box for the PhotoID (from step 1a). Type it in then click “submit your photo.” Then, return to the forum thread and you’ll see your photo.
2) IF YOU HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest for today, you can't use the Photo ID method *today*. Either wait until tomorrow to reply here first, or upload a copy of the image (from your PC) and attach to this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
3) 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 nudge BP viewers to go find the original image in your gallery, if 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... which may one day be deleted.

Here are my two favorites from last month. Both being landscape.

The first is of Horseshoe Lake at the very southern boarder of Illinois. a very peaceful place and about 3 hours from my home. You may have seen other shots of this lake before in my gallery but the panoramic theme category made this an instant desired post.

My second is another shot from Stove Pipe. I did well from one of the photos shot on the same outing but I choose this one for one of my fav's particularly for the degree of difficulty in taking the shot. A one hour hike in the cold desert to get to the location after a 45 min drive from the nearest hotel. Being here just as the sun peeks the horizon and setting the camera in the dark. Then there was the hot hike back to the car. Besides that... lots of LUCK! Would I do it again? No. Am I glad I did it, yes. Hope you like it

The card board panels on the false ceiling and lighting in a shop in Packages Mall, Lahore instantly made me reach for my mobile and I started taking a few images of the cool light and shadow play over my head.

  The 1st place prize winner for Elements of Design is....

Drumroll...

Pow Wow Dancer by Colleen Edwards

and we won't let Cathryn Gallacher miss out, just because there was a problem with my programming. So Cloister, Gloucester Cathedral will still retain an honorary First Place.

I won't be able to fix the page at that time, due to the site move. But hopefully someone will remind me in about a month... when the rest of the reprogramming work is complete.

Thanks!
Jim
