I extended the poll for two total days from now.

I really hope that the people that did vote will stop back and re-vote. However, I only see four available votes making a different choice so that could make it another clusterfluck but lets try to get people in here to cast their votes.

Fair call skippy. Another few days will hopefully get a decent amount of votes cast making it fairer.

As for the "clusterfluck" it's all my fault but it has had me laughing with tears as that word (minus an l) is exactly the right word to describe it. I havent heard that word for years and years.

Thank you for putting a smile back on my face after a hard few days recently.
I once prayed to God for a camera, but quickly found out he didn't work that way.... so I stole a camera and prayed for his forgiveness.

Still close and I expect it that way. Anyway, we went from 13 when I put out all the please vote threads and we are now up to 20. I like it! Lets hope it keeps going and maybe even attracts a few April entrants.

36 votes is nice. The leader currently has a 50% vote total which is also nice. There is still time for anyone that wants to get a late vote in.

I wouldn't call a 7 vote difference when there are 36 votes cast, getting smoked. We had some pretty nice shots to choose from this month.

Congratulations, nightowldup. Great shot  :)
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

It's all over but the fat lady singing...or a bunch of people suddenly showing up in the eleventh hour. Or is it the second hour since it closes at 02:34:29 PM. I guess that is MST as it is now 4:02 EST so I guess we have about thirty minutes before it is official.

nightowldup - while not official, I would say get ready to name the May theme for the month.
