  81 .  January 2013 Countdown Thread
Happy Valentine's Day (almost)! Since we have a short month, I thought I'd post this thread a couple of days early. Good luck everyone! I'd like a box of delicious chocolates and a glass of bubbles please!

Helpful hints for attaching photos into Forum Threads:
1) Sign into BP completely (name + password.)
2) If you have NOT YET entered the Contest today, you can use the "Photo ID" to pull an existing image from your Member Center into your reply to this thread (avoiding a duplicate image upload.) Get the Photo ID# from your Member Center, come to back this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, then choose "1" from the images-to-attach drop-down. Click Submit; at the next screen populate the "Photo ID" box at the right. Skip the other fields on that screen.
3) If you HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest today before replying to this thread, you can't use the Photo ID method today. You can either wait until tomorrow to reply here (before your new Contest entry!) or, upload a new copy of the particular image (from your PC) into this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
4) If you're uploading a duplicate, maybe title it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later... This can help direct viewers to find the original image in your gallery, when they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, 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---that way, if the duplicate is deleted later, the comment history isn't lost.

Good luck everyone!!!

  I already entered the contest today, so I will try to remember to post my favorite tomorrow. In the meantime, my January entries can be found in my gallery on pgs 1-2 starting with "Trio" and ending with "Illumination."

Good luck everyone - I can't wait to see your hopefuls!

Thanks Shell for hosting this thread each month.

My fave this month has been gradually growing on me, each time I see it, it looks a wee bit better, but I know that's just me and has nothing to do with the chances of this going any forward.

And good luck to all of you in the January Contest. For those who might want to take a peek at my January entries, these run from "All Indoors" on the first page to "Right Diet' on the second page of my gallery.

O, and Happy Valentines Day to all!!!

  Zig Zag

A rework of an old favorite of mine; drawbridge "teeth" joined together while the bridge is unopened.
 
  Dynjandi
Dynjandi
Easily the most spectacular (and largest) falls in the Westfjords of Iceland, this was the first "destination falls" we visited on the trip. The falls
tumble some 300 feet in all, forming a collection of 7 distinct waterfalls, all very different from each other. The uppermost falls however,
steal the show, spilling over the ridge and then doubling in width before reaching the first lagoon.
The falls are at the innermost end of a long fjord, and once you pry your eyes off the falls and turn around, the view is equally stunning.
 
 
So, winter is my slowest season, photographically. I tend to use Dec-Feb for lots of resubs of old favorites, or reworked versions of old favorites. I'm still going through new images from Iceland, however, so this winter is, unusually, a pretty even mix of new, resub and rework.
Thus, a favorite New ("Dynjandi"), a favorite Resubmit ("Morning Beauty"), and a favorite Rework ("Zig Zag") ;) Best of luck to everyone!

  Pat, I'm just outside D.C. - so it could be much worse winters if I lived elsewhere---but the "photo hibernation" effect takes over nonetheless, and I'm seldom interested in going outside to shoot, without good reason (such as a great snowfall---which we didn't get this winter, to my dismay.)

My Butterscotch kitty, who most of you have seen before, and who I think has garnered me the most photo awards of any family member, passed away in January. So, I'm picking one of her, but hoping for any. Here goes...

  Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that, Michelle! I love all your captures of her; such a beautiful cat!

2/17/2013 4:30:58 AM

  I'm beyond sorry about the kitty. I sure know how that feels to lose them. My Ally is almost 11 now, and she's slowing down a bit. I worry about them a lot more after losing Boo. It hurts so much when they have to go.

And The Feathers Fairly Flew...
Thanks Michelle for the title of today's image! Part two of the squabble over lunch. This is Red-tailed Hawk number three stealing left overs from Hawk number two. I think all three hawks got plenty to eat though the first two did all the plucking!
 
 
I think my favorite for the months is "And the Feathers Fairly Flew", though I have a lot this month that I really like I was able to get out a lot!

My images start on Pg 3 with Sandhill Crane and end on Pg 6 with Tundra Swans in a Row.

Michelle - so sorry about Butterscotch - I am glad she provided such love and affection while she was here with you.

2/18/2013 6:50:41 AM

  Thank you all for your warm thoughts about Butterscotch. She was a beautiful kitty. She really, truly photographed larger than life - she was the runt of her litter and very sick as a kitten. She managed to live for 10.5 years but the last couple she wasn't very well. I miss her and her liquid golden eyes. I'm thankful to have so many beautiful reminders of her - reminds me why I love photography so much.

2/18/2013 2:15:59 PM

  Good grief, I am slow joining in this month. Good luck to everyone!

If you want to look, mine start with "Barn Owl" and finish with "119"

Hopefully I will get a chance to pick some favorites before they post finalists.

It appears the site has rearranged and I was unable to find the forum for awhile. I will take a look at your gallies tonight and make my pics. :) I have not been subbmitting much but if I was lucky to get one move on I think it could be Icy Cold Waters (in my Jan folder)

2/20/2013 11:31:26 AM

  Whew...a little late to the party this month. Michelle, I am so sorry about Butterscotch. I adored your pictures of her. I am sure you both added much to each others lives and sometimes that's the only consoling thought :)

I haven't looked at my Jan entries to pick a fav yet. They run from "Put to Bed" on page 2 to "Talk to the Talons" on page 3. Will post my fav's soon!

2/20/2013 1:29:45 PM

  Susan, I like Studebaker..I learned to drive in one, had my first accident in one, etc..they have a place in my heart!

2/20/2013 1:53:34 PM

  Here is my stab at favorites:

Michelle - My Beautiful Beasties (also love Trio)
Usman - Light of my Life (or Pas de Deux)
Tony - Respect
Pat - Towering over Dallas
Carolyn - Cypress & Smoke
Leslie - American Brown Pelican Portrait
Jeff - Brass & Steel
Jackie - Winter Frosting

Carolyn, I'm glad that Studebaker sparked some memories for you!

I just realized there's only 8 more days left in the month!

2/20/2013 3:34:17 PM

  Chris, I love all three of your choices, but my fav would be Morning Beauty. The lighting is fabulous!

2/20/2013 3:36:25 PM

Carolyn ....Morning Song (or any from that series)

Usman...Archways

Tony.. Its a Bird Its a Plane

Pat...An Awesome Dude

Christopher...Morning Beauty

2/20/2013 4:15:11 PM

  I was too busy at work in the past week or so and just now got the time to go over your beautiful galleries. And so sorry for your loss, Shell :(

Michele F. = Taylor (Wonderful Portrait and smile)

Carolyn F. = The Colors of Beaver's Bend (remarkably beautiful fall landscape)

  82 .  Monthly Theme
During the BP site updates the contest "Monthly Theme" reverted from LOVE to All Indoors. Some of the new entries reflect the indoor theme instead of love.

Most likely this is an error that will be corrected so be careful what you enter in the Monthly Theme.

2/11/2013 6:22:44 PM

  It's showing Love Story this morning.

2/13/2013 6:17:55 AM

  I knew they would correct the theme soon.

Now I have to find something loving to shoot.

2/13/2013 7:00:46 AM

  I just looked on my computer it still says All Indoors. How can that be? Would an older browser display something different from other computers?

  Thanks Gregory, I did what you suggested. I never would have guessed that some BP elements will stay the same until cookies have been deleted. Now I see Love Story also.

Come to think of it the first time I saw the current monthly theme I was on a friends computer and not mine at home.

I wonder if this has happened to anyone else? Maybe I was seeing the wrong theme other times in the past.

  84 .  Wrong category
The entry I put in on the first of Feb, is suppose to go into element of design and I accidently pressed digital darkroom.

It has a finalist award on it so I don't want to delete it and put it back up.

Is there anyway to fix it?

  Tomorrow (Feb 2) before you enter anything new, go to your Member Center, Edit Photos, and locate this photo. Under it, is a link to "Enter Contest"---click that, and specify Elements of Design, then submit. It will change the category, but won't count as your daily entry. Then you can make your Saturday entry (if you've got one planned.)

2/1/2013 5:53:57 PM

  Thank you Christopher I will do that tomorrow. That is excellent advice to know.

I pressed the wrong category this morning when I entered the image.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

January 15, 2013...WOW! Welcome to 2013 everyone! I hope that this new year is treating you all well with happiness, health and maybe some special treats from the BP judges. It's time to select our favorites and to break out the chocolates (I have a bunch left from my stocking) and your favorite beverage. It's chilly here, so I might need some hot chocolate.

Helpful hints for attaching photos into Forum Threads:
1) Sign into BP completely (name + password.)
2) If you have NOT YET entered the Contest today, you can use the "Photo ID" to pull an existing image from your Member Center into your reply to this thread (avoiding a duplicate image upload.) Get the Photo ID# from your Member Center, come to back this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, then choose "1" from the images-to-attach drop-down. Click Submit; at the next screen populate the "Photo ID" box at the right. Skip the other fields on that screen.
3) If you HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest today before replying to this thread, you can't use the Photo ID method today. You can either wait until tomorrow to reply here (before your new Contest entry!) or, upload a new copy of the particular image (from your PC) into this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
4) If you're uploading a duplicate, maybe title it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later... This can help direct viewers to find the original image in your gallery, when they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, 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---that way, if the duplicate is deleted later, the comment history isn't lost.

Good luck everyone!!!

  Hi Michelle! Happy New Year and thanks for continuing to host this thread :)

I haven't picked a fav yet. If a pic got a POTD, I guess that one is more likely to move forward? Anyone have any takes on that?

I finally got around to making a folder on my gallery for the EP for january.. YEAH.... so from now on I can keep my picks each month in a folder.... here is what I think is my best shot for december

1/16/2013 7:24:05 AM

  Susan, I think it has a good chance if it has a POTD, but it's not a guarantee.
I once had a POTD that disappeared from everywhere else..that was back in the day when we could know such things..but it never reappeared until I resubmitted it, and then it got a 2nd place.
I forgot to say that my Decembers run from "Mountain Fork River" on page 3 to
"Crackin' An Eyeball" on page 6, if anybody wants to pick their faves.

1/16/2013 8:31:27 AM

  Good luck, everyone!

1/16/2013 9:12:08 AM

  Thanks Carolyn! So if I pick that one I *might* be right for once! lol

Yours are always tough to choose a fave from Carolyn, but I'm going with Apocalyptic.

Already uploaded for today so I'll post a pick tomorrow. My entries are from Buh-Bye 2012 on page 2 to No Wine-in Here on page 3.

  I haven't picked a favorite for me yet. But if you are interested in looking, I put "bookends" around my December photos. I uploaded a December and November marker - December images fall in between. :)

Good luck everyone!

1/16/2013 5:02:58 PM

  Mine run from "The Homestead" to "Danger".

The Homestead is probably my favorite.

1/16/2013 5:07:10 PM

  Pat: Now Arriving is definitely the one!
Jeff: I liked several, but also The Homestead for me.

Jeff - Curves and Angles (but I also loved the Shattered series you did! Cool and unusual)
Pat - National Gallery Portrait (it has that storytelling element)
Chris - Connection (wasn't totally sure on where Dec's are but I also liked Colorful Living)

Tony, I like with your pick above and Kara's as well (so adorable). Michelle, I don't know where your Dec's are but I really enjoyed browsing your gallery! ;)

1/17/2013 2:37:36 PM

 
 
 
Happy New Year again - I keep forgetting to post my favorite. I haven't seemed to pick one the judges pick in quite awhile. Hmmm...going to go with a resub that I love, and also because December is usually when I go to the Omaha Zoo (but this year we went in October) - Big Bored Bear

  Okay - my personal favorite by far from my own gallery is "Searching" - the woman in front of the National Portrait Museum searching through the trash. Susan stated exactly my reasons for loving the image - it tells a story. A sad story, right in front of an amazing building.

Carolyn - "An Autumn Evening in Oklahoma"
Jeff - "Navy Bean"

I didn't pick for anyone else because I don't know where December starts and ends. Please let us know! :)

1/17/2013 4:01:39 PM

  oops, sorry Pat I got the name of the pic wrong! Mine start at Buh Bye 2012 on pg2 to No Wine-in Here on pg 3.

1/17/2013 8:03:13 PM

  Susan, I did a very quick check of the November POTDs for badges and found:

6 gold (including at least one 1st)
12 silver

1/17/2013 8:10:18 PM

  Thanks Martha! I was also cruising another gallery and they had a lot of POTD's and about 1/2 of them didn't advance. But that's ok with me cause I am just thrilled to have gotten a POTD, something I figured was as hard to get as a 1st Place!

1/17/2013 8:14:52 PM

  Well, I've had 3 POTD's. One ended up with Gold, one with Silver, and one with an EP. I know, I'm not very helpful. . . .

1/17/2013 8:22:39 PM

  Dang ....!! I forgot again to put my entry in the thread before submitting my daily entry. Hopefully tomorrow....

For those who would like to take a pick from my December hopefuls, these start on page 2 with the image "Majestic" and ends with "Joy of Photography" on the same page down below.

Good luck to you all. Could it be that Judges surprise us with early Finalists this month!? Stock up with the goodies, if they don't.

Usman.

  Usman, I like your "Looking Down" pic..
It's unusual and cute!

1/18/2013 2:45:59 AM

  Usman, it's a tie for me between "First Light" and "The Knowing Look" Like all the other galleries I've looked through, I see many award-worthy images! :)

  Thanks Carolyn, Susan and Pat for your peek and pick from my gallery.

My favorite "B I R D S" was shot looking down from the 19th floor building right opposite the Lake front in Sharjah, UAE. Was happy to get the blurry effect on some of the birds, which I intended.

When viewing everyone's images, I feel I'm not worthy to post here. I'm sure I'll be inspired and maybe some of your talent would rub off on me. Of my December EFPs I pick "Changing Guard go Evergreen".

Carolyn - Apocalyptic
Susan - No Wine in here - colors are fantastic!
Pat - Amid the Hustle and Bustle
Jeff - US Capitol

1/19/2013 1:36:36 PM

  Ken, leave it to me to be different, but I like your Niagara Skywheel.

1/19/2013 3:50:28 PM

  My picks so far:

Susan - Great Egret & A Thing of Beauty is
Carolyn - An Autumn Evening in Oklahoma
Ken - Wet Wet Wet
Pat - It's Time!
Jeff - The Homestead
Usman - Majestic

good luck everyone!

1/19/2013 5:12:43 PM

  Wow, beautiful imagery everyone. Here what my eye liked:

Carolyn = Misty Impressions (frame it)
Jeff = WWII Memorial (cool long exposure)
Pat = One Way (If I were a gambler I put all my money on this beauty, great eye for comp and seeing the Extra-ordinary in ordinary)

Tony = Best Friends (wonderful feel)

Kara = You've Got a friend (Another Big Winner IMHO)

Chris = 6 (awesome tones and EOD)

Michelle = Jaden (Wonderful portrait work)

Lola = I like both of your above picks.

Ken = Maple Colors (lovely colors and dof)

Good luck with all these and more ;)

  Jeff, if you're trying to attach with the Photo ID method, remember you can't do it today, if you've already entered the contest yourself...

Congratulations Pat, and the rest of the Finalists! Managed 3 here as well (not the 3 I'd pick, but I seldom predict it correctly anymore!)

Good luck in the next round! I was surprised how early the Finalists came out this time---Haven't come out this early since May '12, and that month was a bit of an anomaly for 2012...

1/23/2013 6:48:17 PM

  Yup, I'm aware of that and haven't entered yet today (usually the last thing I do before logging off for the day). I was able to post in the Phello's thread, but keeps failing on this one. Oh well.

  88 .  November 2012 Countdown Thread
It's mid-month AGAIN - and this happens to be the last mid-month of this year. 2012 you came and went awfully quickly.

Happy Holi-DAZE everyone! Will it be early or late this month? Anyone have a guess?

Helpful hints for attaching photos into Forum Threads:
1) Sign into BP completely (name + password.)
2) If you have NOT YET entered the Contest today, you can use the "Photo ID" to pull an existing image from your Member Center into your reply to this thread (avoiding a duplicate image upload.) Get the Photo ID# from your Member Center, come to back this thread, click Respond, enter the text of your reply, then choose "1" from the images-to-attach drop-down. Click Submit; at the next screen populate the "Photo ID" box at the right. Skip the other fields on that screen.
3) If you HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest today before replying to this thread, you can't use the Photo ID method today. You can either wait until tomorrow to reply here (before your new Contest entry!) or, upload a new copy of the particular image (from your PC) into this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
4) If you're uploading a duplicate, maybe title it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later... This can help direct viewers to find the original image in your gallery, when they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, 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---that way, if the duplicate is deleted later, the comment history isn't lost.

Good luck everyone!!!

  Coffee Shop Light
Coffee Shop Light
While waiting for a friend in a coffee shop in DC, the wire-cage light fixtures, against big windows with sunscreen mesh blinds, caught my eye.
A traffic signal light on a lamp post is visible just outside, and an office building rises across the street.
 
 
I just really like how this one came out, for such a spontaneous, unplanned image (shot while waiting for a friend to arrive at a coffee shop.) Good luck to everyone in the Nov. results!

It's that time again. While I like a lot of my images this month, I only have one that I think might go on - it was one of the POTD's this month.

I have a resub ("@" in bw) that I would LOVE to see go on, but I've posted it as a favorite before so I'll go with something different here.

  My last entry for November was "Waiting for Monday Morning", and work backwards to "Reflections on Vietnam".

Jeff, it looks like we were both in DC in November. :) Or maybe you live there. It was my first visit.

12/16/2012 7:06:01 PM

  Sorry, start at Black and White Bean and work backwards to Pentagon Memorial.

Pat - I don't live in DC, I was there in August with some fellow BPers and was just back a couple of weeks ago for work. I can't wait to go back again.

My November entries start are between "Ivory" and "Bark Be Gone" - I have several of my own little ones, so naturally they are my sentimental favorites, but for this month, I will go with...

Many faves to choose from, but I specially liked this one. Good luck to all and I think the December Golds will come out on the 21st with Finalists by 19th, so post your faves before its too late.

For those who may want to check my November entries, they start from "Seagull & the Cormorant" on page 1 and end with "Payay Pano" on page 2. Thanks for looking :)

This is my pick for November. It wasn't a particularly strong month for me. My Catalina Island photos are my favorites. My photos can be found in the November Editor's Picks album.

My guess is that finalists come out on Dec 21 with gold announced the following week. It would be too much to think we would all get early Christmas gifts! Chris - what do your statistics say for December?

12/17/2012 5:13:37 AM

  Mine go from "Awash In Color" on page 3 to "Twisties" on page 6. I'll come back and pick a fave in a while. They are all sunsets, so it's hard to pick.

  I had hoped to get my picks in for everyone b4 heading to Florida for the holiday but didn't make it. I have limited internet access here. Thanks to everyone who made a pick from my gallery :) I keep my fingers crossed for everyone to see their work recognized with a medal!

Reading the holiday wishes above really warmed my heart which is good because it's freezing here in Florida! So until it warms up I'll be pressing that shutter with a cold blue finger haha! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday and good times with friends and family. Wishing you all the best!

12/22/2012 7:29:45 PM

  Usman - your photo of the gorilla behind bars was the very first that I commented on when I first joined BP. Your comments were welcoming when you didn't know who I was. Since then I am happy that our paths have continued to cross. Your warmth and graciousness are amazing and your thoughts and comments always touch me. Thank you. Happy Holidays.

12/23/2012 6:51:53 AM

  Happy Holidays and Peace and Happiness all. Hoping too that all get awarded a special treat of a finalist. :)

  Thank you Marcie for the kind words. BP is such a wonderful online community of photogs who love photography and its not uncommon to receive appreciative feedback/comments on our work, I try to give it back on the images that inspire me, and so many of them do. Many BPers have and continue to touch me too with their warmth and caring thoughts, and I agree with you, its a nice feeling!!!

Now if only, BP showers the Finalists today and winners just before Christmas, it would be icing on the cake ;)

  I hope everyone (including BP Staff) enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day today...

Just some contest trivia, as you munch on left-overs this week, play with new toys and gadgets, or take a break from family, all while awaiting Finalists...

Back in 2006, the November Finalists came out on one of the 5 latest release dates thus far -- 12/29. But then for 2007 - 2011, the November Finalists arrived before Christmas each of those 5 years (including one of the 5 earliest announcements thus far, 2010's 12/13.)

Fingers crossed for news by Friday! May BP Santa bring you silver and gold!

12/25/2012 5:53:14 PM

  Thanks, Chris! I love the stats and trivia. I liked your last line...hint, hint Santa! Lol

I also hope everyone had a joyous and fulfilling holiday!

  I got a judges comment on the first picture in my gallery the duo purple flowers which is a finalist.

I am crossing my fingers.

12/29/2012 6:10:33 PM

  They seem to be commenting on everything.

12/29/2012 6:52:09 PM

  I don't get many judge's comments but I appreciate them when I do. I have had them on images that remained finalists as well as on images that went on to gold. Of my three finalists this time, I have a judge's comment on only one so they are not commenting on quite everything :)

12/29/2012 8:06:08 PM

  :-(

no judges comments for me.

12/30/2012 7:15:41 AM

  Judges commented on one of my two - not the one that I have higher hopes for. In the past I have not had images with Judges comments move on - hope for that trend to change! But it IS nice to know what it is that caught their eye.

12/30/2012 7:24:45 AM

  I had a comment on 1 of the two Its probably the image I think has the best chance. The comment wasn't particularly encouraging that it would go any further though. Still wonderful to get a comment from them. :) I have only had two 2nd place winners thus far so really for me just getting a finalist is thrilling.

Did get a 2nd place, though, and I'm super pleased with that.

  89 .  People's Choice
Wouldn't it be fun if after the finalists are posted for the month that BP members could cast one vote for their favorite photo out of the judges finalist selections and whoever received the most votes would have a "People's Choice" badge under it? Just a thought....what do you all think?

12/6/2012 3:45:19 PM

  Some photo sites have something like this: in way it would be a good chance to get noticed (then, more people would look at Finalists), but the problem could be that it may become a vote-fishing/popularity contest: those with more friends will probably get more votes, thus some people might start commenting hundreds of photos to get more friends and, thus, more votes. As commenting takes time, this will probably result in lots of short or copy-paste comments (e.g. "cool" to every photo).

12/7/2012 2:19:13 AM

  You are probably right Tiia. I never thought about it that way.

12/7/2012 2:35:54 AM

  Tiia is right. There's always that perception when there is voting involved. Not that I ever enter contests except for here, but if I did, I wouldn't enter one where the population of the site votes. Too much clickishness...(if that's a word)

12/7/2012 11:32:14 AM

Christopher J. Budny

  I think you'd likely run into some of that, in a members-voting situation. Maybe more so at BP, where we're very much a fun, friendly, chatty community of like-minded photographers---and I mean that as a contrast to some of the photo sites whose members are 100% competitive, critical (in an analyzing or scrutinizing or technical perfection way.)
Perhaps you could reduce the impact of "best friends" voting (instead of "best image" voting) by saying for example, if you're going to participate, you must vote for 20 images, and no more than 2 can come from the same photographer. Something along those lines perhaps...

12/11/2012 5:36:54 AM

  I was thinking one vote per member. You would look at all the finalists, pick your favorite out of those finalists and cast one vote. I do it every month anyway. I just don't get to actually "vote" and it's always kept to myself. If each member had only ONE vote and there was no way of knowing who voted for whom, (did I say that correctly? lol) I think that would be pretty fair. Like I said, I choose my favorite each month anyway out of the judges finalist selections and think to myself...THIS is the photo I would choose! I have alot of photographers on this site that I watch, a few that I am friendly with but when I look at those finalists and see that one photo that just absolutely blows me away, friend or not, that's whose photo I would vote for.

  Good point...! One vote would also go a long way to knocking out "BFF" votes ;)

12/11/2012 9:22:57 AM

  Interesting idea, Dayna! I agree with the issues raised but also agree that community feedback is important. We do have the "Add to My Favorite Photos" option. I use this to express appreciation of those images that really blow me away. When I review finalists, I use it to provide feedback to the photographers, and also as a reference for myself to review and learn from those images that impress me the most. Unfortunately people using the old-style galleries don't have an easy way to see which of their photos were Faved.

12/12/2012 8:10:09 AM

  Sounds like a great idea to me. How about allowing one vote for a favorite per photo category instead of just one overall??? Just a thought.

12/12/2012 8:58:14 AM

  Who has time to go through all those finalists?

12/13/2012 3:07:45 AM

  Honestly, I would not like to see the contest on this site being influenced by any kind of ‘Vote’.

  Carolyn, the same thing happened to me-they took one of my EPs off - December 4 I think, but I didn't ask them why, I just thought maybe I was going nuts. I guess I should have called them on it. Next time...

12/10/2012 2:26:06 PM

  You should tell them..Email Jay@betterphoto.com..He wasn't aware of it til I told him, so he will want to know about yours, I think..It was on the 4th for me, too.

  Not really, Susan - I mean not easily. You can go to Photos on the main menu and drop down the possibilities. Choose Editor's Picks. Now start clicking to look. I think these are pretty much the current month's picks, esp since we're well into the month. If you see your entry there, it should mean it has been selected again this month for an EP. However, since they are displayed randomly, you can click all day and never see it but it could well still be there.
At any rate, this is how I understand it. I sometimes browse the EP's this way, but not to check on my own entries - just as a way to see some nice photos that I might have missed.
