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.

Who's game? Post your best sports photo from this year?

So the rules are...

post your best sports-related photo taken in 2007?

Count me in.

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.

I just figure somewhere on our hard drives is a really good photo we took this year and would be happy to display it.

20 bucks says taylor takes the win, and he wont even have to use a photo he took of me to do it.

Seriously these photo contests and thread are super rad, keep up the radness!`

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?

I think this one is all yours.

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.

Any consensus?

how about everyone just votes after all the pics have been posted?
Old    Ryan Taylor (wakesurf12)      Join Date: Jun 2003       12-29-2007, 8:08 PM Reply   
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.

it would be an X-way tie. everyone would vote for their own pic.

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!

Rule #1. Cannot vote for your own.

Rule #2. Vote for 3 photos. No order. Photo with most votes wins. 2nd most votes 2nd. etc. etc.

That pic is just BEGGING to be used in a "caption this photo" thread!

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.

I'll start the thread.

Let's have a little fun with this one...

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.

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!

Can the "photo" be a sequence?

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

Russell-

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.
Old    Scott (scott_a)      Join Date: Dec 2002       01-04-2008, 8:38 PM Reply   
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.

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?

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.

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.

Some of the heavy hitters have yet to post yet either (Umali, Rich D, Bess). So the best is yet to come.

**I hope mine was one of the better ones**

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.

You can't post slideshows on WakeWorld.


Pick ONE photo that you think is your best and post it.

Well, I think that is a wrap if we are talking noon on the pacific coast.

Who is judging or are we voting?

Fairly small turnout. Wonder if some of us amateurs were not interested in competing against the better photographers of WW.

As for me, I have no shame.....it is all fun and a learning process.

Here's my stab at the photo caption:

"I don't have a problem...I can stop anytime I want!"

Joe,

Thanks for the input. Getting both positive and negative feedback on photos helps tremendously with the learning curve.

I should have been shooting in continuous mode..... 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...

I can also use quite a bit of work with my photoshop abilities...but as with life, this is a work in progress.
