POTM for July 2014 - we have a winner...
« on: July 25, 2014, 04:58:23 AM »
Slim pickings again this month so only 3 to choose from for the 'Purple' Theme.

Hopefully one or two more will arrive shortly but either way I think we will be going for just one round of voting.

Please vote for the 'Purple' image you like the most and then give the poll a bump :)

Purple 1 - Bish


Purple 2 - Tartlaghan - Joint Second Place


Purple 3 - Snapper - Winner (how many bees did you spot?!)  ;)


Purple 4 - bandmandq - Joint Second Place


Purple 5 - Suka

Never stop photographing. It is very likely that your best photograph has not yet been captured

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?

The 4th entry could not be sent to me yesterday for reasons beyond the photographer's control.

In order to be fair,  for the next 24 hours only, anyone who has already cast a vote can change his/her vote.

Hope you all are happy with that?

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.

We now have 5 entries but I think that just one poll will do the job. Shout if you disagree?  :-\

Only 10 votes so far - c'mon people! It's not a proper comp if only 10 people have voted, especially as 5 of the votes will have come from the entrants!

A low turnout of entries and a disappointingly low number of people voting but the results are in and posted above.

Many thanks to all who did enter!  :)

A quick reminder that there is no Theme for August - get a photo that fits the 990x415 crop.

Hoping and assuming that the POTM doesn't fold due to lack of interest, I will think about a theme for September and publish it  shortly...  :-\

Congrats to Snapper on the win and to the other entries that absolutely NAILED the theme this month!
