  91 .  Unable to upload.
Is anyone having problems uploading a photo into the contest? I tried several photos and made sure that they were within the correct amount of pixels and MB.



1/1/2014 3:46:42 PM

  Yes - seems there are issues today.

1/1/2014 4:32:36 PM


Thanks! I thought I was loosing it and so early in the year!

Happy New Year!!


1/1/2014 4:42:18 PM

  Me too. I just tried, and can't upload.

1/1/2014 6:50:34 PM

  It is so comforting to know I am not going crazy. Have a Happy New Year!!

  I spent 3 hours trying to find out what was wrong with my computer' server-Firefox, because BP told me that it was my servers fault not theirs. I think BP took the day off and someone hit the switch! My server is fine- BP's is dead!

1/1/2014 7:26:10 PM

  I didn't think about that, Nancy Marie. I use Firefox too, but I just tried to upload with Internet Explorer, and it didn't work either ...

1/1/2014 7:50:59 PM

  Must be a January 1st problem...I have tried with IE and Firefox. Nothing works. WEll, Happy New Year anyway :-)I am sure they will get it fixed when they come back to work...

1/1/2014 8:09:31 PM

  It seems to work now (I saw some photos uploaded on 1st).

  92 .  Server Problems Today?
anyone else having problems uploading images today? I have been receiving server error messages since early this morning.

1/1/2014 9:43:07 AM

  The most recent image uploaded to the contest is dated 12/31/2013, so it seems we're all having the same problem.

1/1/2014 10:14:49 AM

  thanks, Martha. at least I now know it's not just on my end. Happy New Year!

1/1/2014 10:19:31 AM

  I haven't been able to upload anything, either. I was wondering if there had been any changes with the uploading process starting this new year.

1/1/2014 11:02:03 AM

  It is possible to enter a previously uploaded image (also those that have been in the contest some time ago).

1/1/2014 1:54:16 PM

  Good point, Tiia! Let's all enter a previously uploaded favorite since I doubt anyone will be in the office to fix this before tomorrow.

1/1/2014 2:01:16 PM

  Might just do that. No luck on my end, either.

1/1/2014 2:53:41 PM

  Now the system seems to be working.

Just wanted to thank BP for making this virtual platform available to so many of us to showcase our passion. Through this medium I have been able to learn a lot about photography and also have made friendships along the way.

All the best to Team BP and fellow BPers in the NEW YEAR and also for many more years to come.

  Thanks Usman for starting this thread. I credit BP for my love for photography, and continued desire to travel to beautiful locales. If not for BP, I would not be into photography. And BP has remained viable in a fast-paced and ever changing Internet/technology environment, I think for 19 years now. So for all the folks that make BP what it is today…THANKS!! And Happy New Year!

Photography Question 
Ellen D. Hall

  94 .  Need to buy a camera (soon).
Until last week I owned a Sony Cybershot DSC-H2 - it has been lost or stolen and I must have a camera. I loved the image quality of my camera - I want something of equal image quality but faster (I like to shoot pets, butterflies, hummingbirds, etc). I also would like to be able to shoot closer in macro. I have tried looking at online reviews but I don't understand the categories. My Sony had a 12x zoom. It was larger than pocket-sized, which was fine with me. Don't need a smaller camera. Would like to stay in $400-$600 range. Any suggestions?

12/29/2013 12:42:42 PM

  Look at the Canon point and shoots. They have some nice ones. A friend of mine has a Power Shot SX50HS and he gets marvelous shots with it. It has about a 30-50X zoom, too. It was just on sale for $329. Might be just the thing for you. A tip about shooting closeups with this sort of a camera is DON'T use your zoom, put the camera right up on what you want to shoot. I hope this helps some.

  97 .  Photos look soft after uploading.
Does anyone else think their photos look soft and lose detail after uploading to BP. When I look at my originals and then the same image I've uploaded to BP there is a big difference. Am I doing something wrong?

12/21/2013 7:00:10 AM

  What size images are you uploading at BP, Nicholas? I make it a point to upload 800 ppi on the wider side and sharpening is my last step in post processing before saving it as a Tif file. This way the images look the same on my hard drive as on BP site. Hope this helps.

  To add onto Usman's comment…several years ago BP made a statement in the forum about the 800 pixel restriction. I think their upload instructions still mention 1600 pixels, but their process will reduce it to 800 pixels on the long side, for display. Rather than letting the BP process downsize the image, they recommended BP members resize to 800 pixels and sharpen…as Usman has said. I tried to search thru the forum for this thread on the resizing, but couldn't find it.

In the same BP forum thread, BP had also suggested uploading as TIF, because they would appear slightly better than JPG. But over the years, I don't think this is as applicable, although I still upload as TIF.

You can do some easy experiments. Upload an image at 2500 pixels, then another at 1600 pixels, and finally at 800 pixels (and be sure to sharpen the 800 version). Do one as JPG and another as TIF, then open them up in browser tabs and compare side-by-side.

  98 .  Outdoor Nativity Pageant
I hope to go to an outdoor nativity pageant and would like to know if anyone can give me some tips. I already know to use my tripod and wear warms clothes... it is the Great White North who know.. eh. LOL Please give me a tip or two and I'll consider that my Christmas present from you. :) Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to whoever reads this. May you receive heaven's best!!!

12/19/2013 10:41:14 PM

  Take some extra camera batteries with you and keep them in your pocket (preferably zippered pocket close to your body. Also, carry, in case you need one, a cover for your camera and lens, like a rain cover, or you can use a plain shower cap, to keep the rain, snow, sleet, freezing fog out, when you are not shooting. If you are going to be shooting, you could cut a whole the shape of the front of your lens, put a rubber band on to hold it in place, which will help to keep rain, etc. out. Wear as many layers as you are comfortable with, including a warm hat. If you do not own a pair of polartech gloves-you can purchase some inexpensive ones at national brand stores--, cut just the tips of the fingers of the right glove off that you will need to operate your camera. Lastly, take someone with you, if possible-safety in numbers; cell phone if possible; don't leave home without telling a family member, good friend, where you will be and what time you are expecting to be back. Have Fun!

12/20/2013 10:16:11 AM

  Thanks Nancy for the excellent advice.

I won't bother trying to photographing it if it's raining but will still go if just cold. The glove idea is brilliant as I have the ones with all fingers cut out and the fold over mitt but if I just had the shutter finger and thumb cut off that would work great for me.

I don't do a lot of photography at night as I feel it is not safe. My one Christmas post this year is from last year with me holding an umbrella in 7km winds, using my glove on a low lamp post as a tripod... in a semi safe area but won't do it again. It's a miracle I got a shot in at all so I am very pleased with it.

The pageant will have many other people there so it will be a safe environment.

Victoria has a few excellent night time, male photographers and I enjoy their images so much but would not tackle the winter, dark & cold conditions they do. It's a shame that this world is not safe place for woman to come and go as they please.

Just bought a cell phone and it is so new to me I forget to take it with me. LOL

Thanks again for taking the time to reply to my question.

Happy Shooting, Sharon

12/20/2013 12:40:49 PM

  I also wonder what would be the best camera settings for slow moving people outdoors in the dark with pageant lighting as for a play. Please share some tips with me... or just use special night settings on camera and not more technical ones?

Here are some sample photos that others have taken...

12/20/2013 12:45:55 PM

  If you want to freeze slow moving action, 1/125 should be enough. A high ISO, around 800+. You would either need a long zoom lens (if you are further away from the stage, or get as close as possible)with a wide angle zoom. It wouldn't hurt to review your camera manual for settings, as I do not know what camera you will use, or how far you will be from your subject. Also, the lighting on the stage will affect your settings. If you could get their early and meter some shots, that would be ideal, but sometimes that cannot happen for various reasons. For my camera, (5D2), if close using Canon 24-70mm, I might try using Tv to regulate the speed of the shutter@70mm, with a fairly high ISO to stop action, without blowing out highlights. But read your manual, as only you know how to incorporate all the different settings to fit your camera and lens. Study now a few days before the show and try some shots at night at home in similar lighting, like inside in a dark room shooting into a lighter room.

12/20/2013 3:30:22 PM

  Thank you again Nancy. I will try out what you've suggested. I only know how to shoot in AV but will experiment with both my lenses... just kit lenses and go from there. If it doesn't stop raining I won't be going... which would be a shame as they put on such a lovely show for a gift to the city of Victoria every year. Lost my manual but have it downloaded on my computer. I will show you the results if I get some shots in. Thanks again, Sharon

12/20/2013 4:25:50 PM

  99 .  Contests
I have seen wonderful (just my opinion) and amazing photos (my opinion only) over looked. And I have seen photos that lack imagination, resemble mass produced greeting cards, simple and blurry etc photos celebrated as contest winners. (simply my opinion).

Are contest winners only considered if they have taken BP photography courses?

thank you for your time

12/19/2013 3:04:37 AM

  Nope, I don't think so. I have yet to take a class and have been fortunate to get a few badges over the years and I happen to live on the other side of World too.

And also I do get inspired from all the Winners, some more than the others, but all are badge worthy (just my opinion).


12/19/2013 6:20:51 AM

  I also have never taken any classes and through the years have won several times and had many finalists. It is a mystery to us how they do the's just a contest, it isn't like we actually win anything anymore...back when I joined BP was free and you could win a years membership if you got a 2nd place,a camera bag for 1st place and a deluxe website if you got a grand prize winner..

  MaryAnne, similar to Usman and Jill, I have not taken any classes and have gotten some finalists and gold medals. Likewise, I know of others that have taken 5+ classes, without getting many finalists or gold medals.

12/19/2013 10:29:29 AM

  I agreement with Usman, Jill and Ken. Have never taken a class and received Gold, finalist and POTD. In my opinion the Judges are doing great at picking the winners and finalists. To me they are always well worth the awards they received.

12/19/2013 12:49:16 PM

  I have not taken any classes, either, and I've got a few 2nd places, lots of finalists and a couple of staff favorites. Still, I've noticed that a lot has changed this year: e.g. in the beginning of 2013 I got editors' picks for almost every image, while so far, I've got only 2 for November and none for December. Also, I agree that some badge winning photos are not very original and/or creative and some are not techically perfect but, on the other hand, some are...

12/19/2013 1:24:57 PM

  Same here. Never any classes and yet I've had a lot of finalists and some winners, too. Definitely the courses have nothing to do with it.
We would all agree with you that many great images are passed over and some that maybe aren't so great move on to gold, but as they always say, it's all subjective.

12/19/2013 5:31:20 PM

  I am so thankful to read that feedback.

12/21/2013 9:03:27 AM

  I was wondering the same thing and am glad to see the responses. I have won several EPs and a couple of 2nd places but nothing lately. The judging has definitely changed but can't see any rhyme or reason. While I see many wonderful photos being selected I do notice the same thing...that many seem to be blurry, have lots of noise, are over saturated, have poor composition, etc.. I don't want to criticize and give credit to anyone who even enters the contests but something is definitely wrong. I haven't spoken up until now because I didn't want to sound like "sour grapes". I realize that everyone always has room for improvement and it helps us to strive to get better and better no matter how good we are at our craft but it would also help to know why excellent photos are passed over. Is there something we are missing? I am wondering if there is a change in staff ...maybe fewer staff to judge or less experienced. Oh well.

1/19/2014 7:00:12 PM

  I have taken many classes and have only won three finalist awards in four years and Editor's Picks but those have become few and far between. I haven't been able to figure out why the change so if someone can explain it, I'd appreciate it.

1/21/2014 8:40:25 PM

12/19/2013 8:42:40 AM
I have heard the same, but it no longer happens.

Now I have won badges and am a finalist (but of all the photos I have posted - they not my best shots by far)

"I joined BP was free and you could win a years membership if you got a 2nd place,a camera bag for 1st place and a deluxe website if you got a grand prize winner.."

Good to know.

2/1/2014 11:24:23 AM

  Hi MaryAnne. I've never taken a class through BP but I did sign up for a web site last year. I've had 2nd place winner, a few POTD and many finalists. No rhyme or reason to the judging this past year. I rarely had an entry without an EP and now I receive just a few per month. My personal rule of thumb is that I only enter what I think deserves at least and EP.

2/15/2014 4:41:27 AM

  Since posting my question I have have had quite a few recognitions. It's so funny because I sell my work in art galleries that I as starting to think that maybe my work was too artistic compared to others here.

thanks for your response.

2/15/2014 7:31:00 AM

  I was also worried because I do not do staged photos. Most of my photos are dynamic. I was seeing a lot of what I consider typical photos eg. a baby in a hand and forearm - an over used concept. I curate and I like to see and create photos that make people want to look at them for more than a glance. A photo that is not obvious in a single moment.

I was considering moving to a different site.

But things have changed the more I participate in explaining my purpose, my love of irony, my intentions and my mantra, the more I have been understood.

  100 .  November Countdown
Season's Greetings! May your holidays be filled with warmth and joy, and just hopefully, a few BP medals thrown in ;)

This monthly thread is intended to let us share our one favorite image from our entries last month -- November. Your personal favorite, or maybe your most hopeful, or your proudest photographic achievement that month, etc.; perhaps it isn't always the image that you *think* might potentially go on to Finalist or better, and it may not be an image the BP Judges are drawn to! It isn't about predicting a Finalist/Winner (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 November contest results!

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. This avoids a duplicate image upload to your Member Center. Note the Photo ID# of the image you wish to include here (visible in your Member Center) then return to this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, and 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" field shown over at the right. Skip the other text fields on that screen, check the boxes at the bottom, and Submit.

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.

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.

  Fjords of Chicago
Fjords of Chicago
Playing around with another image of the Aqua Tower in Chicago. The undulating balconies, different on
every floor, reminded me (when viewed at this steep upward angle) of a topographical map, suggesting
rolling hills, or a constructed landscape viewed from "above and at an angle." Windows then,
reflecting blue sky, became lakes or fjords within the hills. (I tinted them all a sky blue to heighten the effect.)
I enjoyed a wonderful photography visit to Chicago in October, which formed the basis of most of my November entries. I was slightly obsessed with this hotel/condo tower...!

  Looks like another late set of results... Perhaps even running into January. (Which if I recall, has only happened once before.)
Best of luck to everyone, and here's wishing you a very Happy New Year!

I guess I'm not too late for this thread! I'm thinking SFs today, finalists on Thursday? Maybe?

Anyway here's my fave for the month.

Good luck to all and Happy New Year!

  It doesn't look like the SF's have been chosen yet. They certainly are waiting until the end lately. Good luck all. And more importantly good luck in the new year for good health, love, and happiness.

12/31/2013 2:52:10 PM

  Yes they have!

Good luck in the next round for those with SF's. I did receive two so pleasantly surprised. One was on a favorite of mine although I don't post it on the thread.
But anyway I don't mind jinxing myself now.

  That's beautiful, Jackie! I got 8 SFs.

12/31/2013 6:48:03 PM

  CONGRATZ to all who got SFs, Finalists and Winners shouldn't take too long now!!!

  6 Finalists and a Win for me. CONGRATZ to all who got golden and good luck in 2014!!!

  Nothing for me (no surprise: I got only 7 EPs out of 30 entries) and now, due to some error on this site, I cannot upload a contest image... I guess I'll not continue on this site after my portfolio expires in September.

  Happy New Year to everyone! May it be full of beautiful imagery!
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists; I went to bed having only seen SF announcements, and woke up to finalists and winners announcements--honestly didn't expect to see them so fast!
Best of luck to everyone as we move into the Dec contest results!

PS---looking for a new volunteer to take over launching the Countdown thread next month... I won't be able to.

  Happy New Year to everyone and congratulations to all. I received one finalist and SF for November for "de las golondrines" and this is the first time I'm trying to use Nikki's directions to include link, so fingers crossed it works.

  well it almost worked, the link took you to the gallery. My finalist is the second one - it's a fanned seed head from a purple Texas dandelion that I took in Ransom Canyon and crossed my fingers it would turn out well. ~April
