I am right there with you, Mike. I think you already have my email. Please send me an invite. I agree with you 100% about this site. I have always enjoyed your photos. Take care and please send me the invite. Ready to try something new. #10585731

Colette M. Metcalf level-classic 2/26/2013 3:04:02 AM

Terrific find and image, Mike!!! I too always enjoy your work! #10585737

Shelly A. Van Camp level-classic 2/26/2013 5:55:02 AM

I will miss you, Mike.....I agree and would love to have the info. I will probably stay here on BP, for one reason, the people. I have decided not to worry about badges, etc. I have many pictures that are overlooked as well. I love your images. #10586056

Monnie Ryan level-classic 2/26/2013 7:29:19 AM

Terrific find well done (as usual). Please send me an invitation - like Tammy, I'm always up for new challenges! #10586258

I enjoy your "man of few words" wit and humor. I think I stick here in large measure because of the camaraderie that ywe all find here. We all learn more about photography here, whether we realize it or not. AND, I learn so much about the world from our travelers and members in countries all over the world.

But I'm also interested in what you've found. Just sent you a note that you can disregard because I now understand the meaning of what you wrote.

Wish you would stay.

Terrific image, Mike; keen eye to catch this interesting comp! I've also gone through periods of non-participation for the same exact feeling but always seem to come back. I also would love that info. Hope to see more of your superb work! #10597563

I spend a lot of time in frustrated fury at some of the same things you mention. I'll stay because of the people, but many of us feel like you do.
I can't handle another site..this one and my 2 "sales" sites are almost too much for me as it is. I wish you the best of luck and keep hanging out in those junkyards. They are full of treasures. #10599725

JO ANN CLEVELAND level-classic 3/11/2013 11:49:46 AM

Ahhhhh, I hate to see you go Mike! I always love your work.
I too sometimes get frustrated and then I decided I learned photography with this site..the most joy is in the people and learning from them...folks have been great.
Would love to look at the site and consider it though..
Best of luck to ya!

I agree with the others...we like you.....we know you...we like your work. A lot of us don't win....I stay because I love the people....Please stay!! #10607659

I was so wandering about you and had to pull up your gallery. I sure miss seeing your images. I guess you have heard what is happening now. They are only picking just a handful of EPs. I think everyone is upset. I keep thinking about doing something else with my images. I really think this site is just about to fold. I do laugh every time I read... Win big prizes! LOL Oh, how I remember my children loving to get those silver and gold stars when they did something good at school or home. #10612373

Shelly A. Van Camp level-classic 3/19/2013 3:26:28 PM

As Jo Ann..I stay for the people and I have learned so much...I wondered why I am not getting any EP's....Hmmmm #10616145

Avril Young level-classic 3/25/2013 5:33:28 PM

Oh my goodness will miss your work..have been away, then found no more EP's so sad,when I got back.. #10623739

Description

This is my last post on BP. Tired of playing for computer badges and tired of the judges continued show of favoritism. If you want to participate in a REAL photo contest where the judges don't know you and are not associated with the contest, and you can win REAL prizes not associated with the website, then send me your email address and I will send you an invite.

Thanks for commenting over the years and keep on shooting.
