We did a photo contest and then it fizzled out. Since everyone has been busy, how about we just have a photo contest where the photo was taken sometime in 2007? Could make it general sports related if we want. The problem was we got to specific. <BR> <BR>Who's game? Post your best sports photo from this year?

scott_a 12-28-2007 5:11 PM

So the rules are... <BR> <BR>post your best sports-related photo taken in 2007? <BR> <BR>Count me in. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

bigdad 12-28-2007 5:21 PM

Well that would be my choice. The "Best of 2007" is popular right now with a lot of other websites. Walt, Joe or Rich may have the final decision but I think it's a good idea. <BR> <BR>I just figure somewhere on our hard drives is a really good photo we took this year and would be happy to display it.

Walt 12-28-2007 5:25 PM

I can probably dig something up.

dakid 12-28-2007 5:42 PM

don't leave it up to me! you saw what happened last time. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>i have no chance, but i'm in.

wakesurf12 12-28-2007 7:36 PM

I'm in! One photo eh? Deadline 11:59pm 12.31.07?

dakid 12-28-2007 8:45 PM

ryan's in it???? that's it...i'm out!

andy_nintzel 12-29-2007 9:54 AM

20 bucks says taylor takes the win, and he wont even have to use a photo he took of me to do it. <BR> <BR>Seriously these photo contests and thread are super rad, keep up the radness!`

bigdad 12-29-2007 10:52 AM

Well we have at least 6 participants. Walt, you still up for setting it up? Maybe have a deadline sometime in the next couple of weeks in case people are still on vacation and haven't checked the thread in a while?

joshturner 12-29-2007 11:09 AM

i am in for sure.

antbug 12-29-2007 12:30 PM

count me in...

projectely4 12-29-2007 1:21 PM

im in for sure

Walt 12-29-2007 2:04 PM

A.P., <BR> <BR>I think this one is all yours.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

bigdad 12-29-2007 2:28 PM

Well, it's not difficult for me to start the thread... just hard to find a celebrity judge. Not sure if Stephen Hahn is still interested in judging, or we can make a new rule that the winner of the last contest becomes the new judge. Or we can just put it to a vote to all registered wakeworlders. <BR> <BR>Any consensus?

krkx93 12-29-2007 6:34 PM

k well for somebody to win there has to be some pictures<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>

scott_a 12-29-2007 7:56 PM

how about everyone just votes after all the pics have been posted?

wakesurf12 12-29-2007 8:08 PM

that could be good. I don't want to speak for anyone but I know Murray has been posting a lot this week. Maybe he could take a few min during his off season to vote. I dunno.

EXACTLY! What else are we gonna do in here? It's friggin winter...all we're gonna be doing is looking at pictures of people's dogs and cats from now until April! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

wakesurf12 12-29-2007 8:23 PM

Rule #1. Cannot vote for your own. <BR> <BR>Rule #2. Vote for 3 photos. No order. Photo with most votes wins. 2nd most votes 2nd. etc. etc.

scott_a 12-29-2007 10:26 PM

<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>That pic is just BEGGING to be used in a "caption this photo" thread!

bigdad 12-29-2007 10:37 PM

I like Ryan's idea for voting. I think we can stick with that. We can have the final submission time one day before Umali get's home. That way we can eliminate him from the competition. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I'll start the thread. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by bigdad on December 29, 2007)

scott_a 12-29-2007 11:22 PM

Let's have a little fun with this one... <BR> <BR>After all the voting is done, someone should start a post in General Wake telling people that we are having this contest and that we want people to vote for what they think is the best photo. <BR> <BR>Think the same photo will win? I don't. We'd likely have two winners and we could argue over who is the "real" winner instead of having to look at photos of Joe's cracked out dog for the rest of winter! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

dakid 12-29-2007 11:51 PM

you're just mad 'cause ollie doesn't like you. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>believe it or not, he's actually loosened up a lot. he's not too scared of people now.

xcharrier 01-02-2008 12:54 PM

Can the "photo" be a sequence?

bigdad 01-02-2008 7:20 PM

Well at first I was going to say no... but it is a best of... So now I say yes.

bigdad 01-04-2008 7:08 PM

Russell- <BR> <BR>In my opinion, that didn't need to be a sequence. It would be perfect if you froze it in one of the last frames.

scott_a 01-04-2008 8:38 PM

Yeah...the one problem people run into with shooting sequences is that they focus too much on the sequence and throw everything else out the window. The snow is blown the F out, and leaving the shutter open that long really messed up the fire. Now, don't get me wrong- that rider smeared across the frame is dope as hell, but the rest of the frame is pretty much yucky.

solo 01-05-2008 9:44 AM

I would have to say, with the exception of a few photos, I was quite disappointed with peoples entries. I have seen better images out of a lot of the people who entered this year. I thought this was the best of 07?

Walt 01-05-2008 10:19 AM

I'm sure a few more shots will go up before the deadline and you might keep in mind that there are many different levels of photographers posting. <BR> <BR>It's good to see everyone contributing to the thread and I'll take the bad with the good and look forward to seeing everyone's shots getting better in 08. It's also cool to see a few new people posting photos.

bigdad 01-05-2008 10:25 AM

Some of the heavy hitters have yet to post yet either (Umali, Rich D, Bess). So the best is yet to come. <BR> <BR>**I hope mine was one of the better ones** <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

themxercr85 01-05-2008 1:09 PM

Is anyone using a mac? because I hit upload but it doesnt do anything??? heres a slide show of mine. <BR> <BR><a href="http://s71.photobucket.com/albums/i133/themxercr85/?action=view&amp;current=18918a8a.pbw" target="_blank">http://s71.photobucket.com/albums/i133/themxercr85/?action=view&amp;current=18918a8a.pbw</a>

solo 01-05-2008 1:28 PM

You're absolutely right Walt. It wasn't my intention to single any one person out. I just felt that I've seen better images from a few people that have already posted. Still waiting to see the rest. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by solo on January 05, 2008)

scott_a 01-06-2008 12:58 AM

You can't post slideshows on WakeWorld. <BR> <BR> <BR>Pick ONE photo that you think is your best and post it.

deuce 01-07-2008 12:25 PM

Well, I think that is a wrap if we are talking noon on the pacific coast. <BR> <BR>Who is judging or are we voting? <BR> <BR>Fairly small turnout. Wonder if some of us amateurs were not interested in competing against the better photographers of WW. <BR> <BR>As for me, I have no shame.....it is all fun and a learning process.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

01-07-2008 12:51 PM

Here's my stab at the photo caption: <BR> <BR>"I don't have a problem...I can stop anytime I want!"

deuce 01-07-2008 6:40 PM

Joe, <BR> <BR>Thanks for the input. Getting both positive and negative feedback on photos helps tremendously with the learning curve. <BR> <BR>I should have been shooting in continuous mode.....<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0> I just ran down next to the track at the finish line and sort of followed the horses down... (MY GOD THEY ARE MOVING FAST AS THEY GO BY!!!) Didn't really know what to expect. I will know better my next time out... <BR> <BR>I can also use quite a bit of work with my photoshop abilities...but as with life, this is a work in progress.
