The contest is over tomorrow Saturday January 15th 2005, this is the last 24 hours you can email me a photo. If your photo is not up by tonight please let me know.


The end of the year is finally here and there have been hundreds of images shared amongst our members. But who has the talent, the patients, the luck, and the know-how to capture the “Best Image of the Year”

How can you label an image as the best when there are so many different types of photography? Simple, chose an image that you feel will make people say “Wow!”

Any photograph has a “wow” factor, some more then others. Sports photos can make you say wow, nature photos can make you say wow, portraits and glamour can make you say wow. But which one does it the most. Which image is the “Best Image of the Year”?

Gallery can be viewed here:
http://www.pbase.com/t​immyquest/best_of_the_​best (external link)



Rules:
1.)One image per member
2.)Any subject/type
3.)No writing or text should be on the image
4.)All images should be 800 pixels in the widest dimension
5.)Entries must have been taken during 2004
6.)Minimal post processing to image
7.)Photos can be entered from now until January 15th 2004 (it has been brought to my attention that 1/15/04 has already passed, so i have extended the date a whole year) :lol: :oops:

All entries must be emailed to me at Canastaspeciale@yahoo.​com (external link)
Information included should be:

Member name
Title
Shot info (shutter, aperture, ISO, lens, camera)
An explanation of the photograph if desired (who what where when etc), poems, stories etc, will be ignored.
For safe measure, title the image: MemberName.jpg



    Voting will be via Poll after Jan 15th on these message boards. Only one vote per user, voting for ones self is not allowed as it is...well, cheesy.

    Already got 5 emails (one needs to fix something, thus four photos). I can tell already that this is going to be fun.

    Can you just clarify a few questions for us?

    If this is a contest, how will the votes be tallied? A poll after the submissions? (jan 16th?)

    You ask for member names.. but there are none listed.. (this is a good thing if it is a contest) :)

    Thanks, and great idea :)

    That is most likely how i think we should handle it...it's what i had in mind

    I'm asking for member names so i can keep track a few things. For starters, i'm sure we all want to know who took what at the end after the voting. Also, it is a way for me to keep track of people trying to send in more then one photo from differnt emails, not really something i'm worried about, but ya never know.

    2nd runner up gets pride, 1st runner up gets most pride, grand prize is mostest pride.

    If you guys want to put together some sort of fund for some sort of materialistic prize then go for it i guess.
