Re: 30th Photo Challenge -"Inspired By a Song Title" Voting

Great entries which will make voting very difficult and which will involve viewing, reviewing, sorting, re-sorting with probably a toss of a coin at the end!

Thanks for all your work on this challenge, Greg.

Thanks to everyone who has voted so far

There are four pics in the frame at the moment but the way the votes are spreading across the entries - it is wide open

Keep the votes coming folks

Greg

Re: Photo Challenges

I've just sent off my votes for the current competition - not an easy choice and many thanks to Gregles for organizing it.

However could I register a request that these monthly competitions are timed to coincide with your real, actual, genuine, kosher month (as decreed by the calendar, the Good Lord, the Man in the Moon, Mother Nature, and the Natural Order of Things)?

I did actually have an idea for this last one, for the first time in a while. I even took the shot it was to be based on some 3 weeks ago.

I even did some practiced on the manipulation in the Gimp I would have had to do on my entry and was beginning to make some progress when I noticed that June no longer ended on 30th but on 22nd!

OK, of course it was my fault for not reading the small print. But this does seem to be a complication and an unitentional trap for the unwary. Surely it wouldn't matter much if one competition was finishing as the next one started?

Or at least please post a warning message when there is, say, a week to go.

David

That is a pity that you never got your entry in on time David. Hopefully the timing will be kinder for you in future.

Time is nearly up for voting so please let me have your choices as soon as possible

Cheers

Greg
