New this month. Please PM me your shot and I will post it without your name. We are going to judge blindly this month to test it out.

Do Not forget. Your shot needs to be 990x415 to be in the contest.
=================================================================================
Got a nice picture you took with your T2i?  Submit it below and the winner's picture will be posted up as the website header for the month of June.
 
I wish we could throw in a prize but unfortunately, we don't have any sponsors yet.  Bragging rights are always fun to win though!

Also the winner will choose the next POTM`s theme!

Looking forward to seeing what you all got!  The poll will be added on May 20th for the first round of voting.  May 25, 2012 as the poll will be updated so that everyone can vote on their favourite from the top 3 that made it past the first round of voting.

The Theme of this Competition is *Vast*

I like this dictionary definition to help people with ideas;
vast   [vast, vahst]  Show IPA adjective, vast·er, vast·est, noun
adjective
1. of very great area or extent; immense: the vast reaches of outer space.
2. of very great size or proportions; huge; enormous: vast piles of rubble left in the wake of the war.
3. very great in number, quantity, amount, etc.: vast sums of money.
4. very great in degree, intensity, etc.: an artisan of vast skill.
noun
5. Literary . an immense or boundless expanse or space.


RULES

1.  One photo entry per user (so pick your best one!).  Choose wisely as the first photo you submit will be the one judged.  You can't switch photos once one's been submitted.
2.  Photo has to be in some way related to the Theme.
3.  Photo has to be in landscape orientation (as opposed to portrait), preferably 990x415 as this will be the cropped end product (Photos that have a smaller width than 990 or a smaller height than 415 will be disqualified - the reason, enlarging photos degrades their quality).
4.  Deadline for entries is midnight MST on May 20, 2012. Update (Suggested deadline is the 20th as we will now take an entry all the way up to the 25th if you want to suffer from not getting your shot in when the poll opened up.)
5.  Between May 20 and 25, members vote on their 3 favourites and can update/change their votes up until midnight May 25.  From midnight May 25 to the end of the month, the poll will be reset with the top 3 vote-getters from the first round and members can vote for their favorite.
6.  Moderators can now enter a photo in the contest without worrying about conflict on interest.

=================================================================================
Our theme for May will be "Vast".
=================================================================================

Here come the shots:

Shot Number One: Suka


Shot Number Seven: bbdn


Shot Number Ten: Skippy

Skippy, if we don't have a link to our photo (no flickr, 500px, etc. account) can we pm you the 990x415 photo as an attachment?
I don't think we can attach to PM's. if push comes to shove send me a pm and I will give you an email to send it to.

You can open a free photobucket account and it will allow you to upload files.  Skippy would probably allow you to use a dropbox link as well.

Okay, for the last shot who ever took it, where is it? When the anonymous voting is done, I would love to know.  ;D Because that place needs to be put on my bucket list.

Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Poll now added.

Keep in mind that if you still want to send in a picture then I will take it. I will take it all the way up to the cut off of the first round of voting.

Also, I don't know what is up with the poll. It says that it is going to close tomorrow but I have it set for five days. I will come back and open it if it looks tomorrow.

Hmmm...I don't ever look at that "unread posts" listing but I will have to check that out. I wonder what that could be?

The unread listing is all I ever work off unless I am going back to dig out something specific - at least then I know that I get alerted to all new threads and all new activity :)
