Post your best shot. Then we judge as a group. <BR> <BR>Anyone interested?

dakid 12-08-2008 8:54 PM

i'd lose but i'd judge.

wakedad33 12-08-2008 11:08 PM

I'll play, but Walt will kill me. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/650638.jpg" alt="Upload">

Funny that Joe won the last few contest that we had. Just looking for interest right now and we can do an official thread later

dakid 12-09-2008 9:22 AM

well, i know i'd lose this time 'cause i don't have jack to submit! haha!

wakesurf_ohio 12-09-2008 9:27 AM

Sounds good to me. Limit of one photo then?

scott_a 12-09-2008 11:29 AM

I'm in. Is the format going to be the same as last year?

<font size="+1">Why not give it a try... <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/650750.jpg" alt="Upload"></font>

bigdad 12-09-2008 2:34 PM

When we did it last year it did not have a theme. Just your best shot of whatever. The only limitations we could put on it is no heavy photoshopping. Normal tweaks in post is to be expected but no cloning or merging of different photos together. Unless someone wants a theme, but that may limit the entries.

wakesurf12 12-09-2008 2:44 PM

Might as well do a free for all but since this is a wakeboarding site we may want to have favorite wake photo along with favorite photo. Maybe everyone submits their favorite wake photo along with their favorite which could include the wake photo. <BR> <BR>Just a thought.

steezyshots 12-09-2008 3:59 PM

I like your Idea Ryan.

04outback 12-09-2008 5:19 PM

Nice Shot DFTR Josh! Love the composition

scott_a 12-09-2008 5:28 PM

Maybe just have a few different categories? <BR> <BR>-action <BR>-lifestyle <BR>-photo illustration (heavily photoshopped stuff) <BR> <BR> <BR>And maybe have two groups, one for the serious(ly good) dudes and one for just-for-fun'ers?

12-09-2008 5:56 PM

This is a Rad Idea, all the photo threads are always amazing. It would be awesome to see what everyone has to throw into the mix.

wakedad33 12-09-2008 7:42 PM

Scott I like your just-for-fun'ers idea, so I don't have to compete with Ryan &amp; Riley <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

dakid 12-09-2008 10:48 PM

i don't believe in separating the groups. 1 group...if you're intimidated, good. that should push you to get more creative with your shots.

bigdad 12-10-2008 8:19 AM

I agree. There are a few people on here that just kill it. Mike Isler does it for a living but historically has never participated but has helped judge. You should be inspired to try harder. We could separate the topics but some people will be left out. (For instance I have 0 wake shots). But I'll conform to the masses.

12-10-2008 12:20 PM

My money is on Ryan to bring this thing home.

mammoth 12-10-2008 12:43 PM

I'm on Joe's side. I'm one of the intimidated just-for-fun guys, but I'll be submitting something just for the beating.

steezyshots 12-10-2008 4:09 PM

"My money is on Ryan to bring this thing home." <BR> <BR>So is mine.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

scott_a 12-10-2008 10:59 PM

Hey, lets get this thing started! <BR> <BR>Quick! Let's set some ground rules for this thing...

wakesurf12 12-11-2008 11:11 AM

Wow, big expectations. I might have to think about my submission for a bit. <BR> <BR>When is the deadline? Should we start a post that only the photos belong just like last year. One with no comments and then a voting thread?

Walt 12-11-2008 12:54 PM

I'm in.

jjakober 12-11-2008 1:15 PM

I'll play<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

steezyshots 12-11-2008 2:20 PM

If it is voting versus judged, how about you can't vote for your own pic?

scott_a 12-11-2008 4:12 PM

I think that's how it was last year. I don't remember anyone voting for themself.

deuce 12-11-2008 6:35 PM

I'm in.... I was kind of sad that the photo assignment thing ended...

bigdad 12-11-2008 10:40 PM

I'll organize it. What works best is one thread devoted just to photos. No comments. When the contest is over, another thread is devoted to the contests. vote for your top 3. Winner is whoever gets the most "votes" Tie breakers are decided by who ever has the most 1st place votes. <BR> <BR>The prize... none. You get to say you won.

wakedad33 12-12-2008 7:16 AM

Do we summit one photo only?

bigdad 12-12-2008 12:09 PM

You can climb as many mountains and take as many pictures as you want but you can only enter one photo in the contest.

russian 12-13-2008 6:20 PM

I'll play

scott_a 12-14-2008 6:13 PM

wait...so is this a wakeboarding photo contest or a general photography contest?

deuce 12-14-2008 6:14 PM

Rules say anything....

bigdad 12-15-2008 7:52 AM

general photography

steezyshots 12-15-2008 2:56 PM

All my best photos are of naked chicks.. guess I am gonna have to step up my game on the wake shots.

steezyshots 12-15-2008 4:12 PM

Steezyshots.com has been cleared of all links to other sites. If we want to put up high res shots.

steezyshots 12-15-2008 5:11 PM

<a href="http://www.steezyshots.com" target="_blank">www.steezyshots.com</a> <BR> <BR>I have put the page up there to give you all an idea of what it will look like. <BR> <BR>If everybody wants it like that we can use High res images. If not I will take it all down. <BR> <BR>Also I can make thumbnails if you would like? <BR> <BR>(Message edited by steezyshots on December 15, 2008)

downfortheride 12-15-2008 5:14 PM

Riley ~~ So are you saying to send them to you or are you working to were we can post them up. I like your idea and the high res shots.

steezyshots 12-15-2008 5:21 PM

Send them to me at <a href="mailto:wsbriley@gmail.com">wsbriley@gmail.co m</a> with your WW Username. <BR> <BR>If we were to post them first we would still be confined to medium res shots.

steezyshots 12-15-2008 5:24 PM

Unless somebody knows the code to create a photo upload tool. Im sure I can figure it out, but I am swamped working on the new byerlywakeboards.com

steezyshots 12-15-2008 5:29 PM

<a href="http://www.steezyshots.com/photos.htm" target="_blank">www.steezyshots.com/photos.htm</a> <BR> <BR>This would be a thumbnail version, the name of the photo when you open it is the WWer.

steezyshots 12-16-2008 10:33 AM

Images have been removed due to lack of interest. <BR> <BR>Have fun with the contest guys!
