    I usually just save the files as "poster - imagetitle.jpg" then upload them so as to save myself the bother of typing stuff out multiple times...

    Bagsy not counting the votes this month. So many!

    1. entry2 - snadge
    2. grr - cybertect
    3. you lookin at me? - big eejit

    Loads more excellent pictures though, particularly all 3 of wordie's, school days, blagsta - untitled, the moody green man, alien queen does disco, my sentient girl, my father, carnival fair, mon frere, after clint eastwood ah fuck it...there's loads of them...

    I ended up choosing the 3 I did because they all said something to me beyond how good they are technically. entry2 makes me want to find out what the story is, grr makes me laugh and want to go for a beer with the subject and you lookin at me? makes me laugh and freaks me out in equal measure - I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of her like...:D

    I've been putting off voting because I've had a fever and a banging headache all weekend and I just had a look and still can't get my head round it.
    They all look really good. Its much harder than voting for pics of buildings or shapes isnt it.
    Anyway, well done all and thanks for all the votes I got.
    I didnt think I'd get any at all when I saw all the great pictures being entered.

  13. Paulie Tandoori

    Paulie Tandoori shut it you egg!

    Yep, certainly looks like School days by Barking Mad got the most votes from my calculations, followed by My father by cybertect, Entry 2 by snadge, Alien Queen goes disco by Garf, and Self portrait with a common cold by chooch.

    So congratulations are in order to Barking Mad. Well done that man!!! :) Lovely shot and well deserved winner.


    (I totted up the scores on the basis that unnumbered entries followed the format:


    that's because most of the numbered entries were entered like that, i.e. from 1 down to 3)

    I didn't know that it was tiered like that. I just thought it was one point per vote. Doh! It would have taken me ages if I had to put them in order of preference :D

    Teach me to read the rules at the start I guess!

    Barking_Mad Non sibi sed omnibus

    Thanks to all who voted for my photo! Lots of great photos in there.

    Somebody (way back on this thread) asked where the photo was taken. Well it was taken in Kanchipuram, India, in a narrow tunnel entrance to a temple. The young lad was leaning against the wall and I thought straight away that it would make a good photo. Unfortunately, due to the tunnel being so busy, so narrow and there being people behind me sat on the floor, I didnt have time or space to bend down and frame the shot. So I held the camera down by my waist, guessed the framing and hoped the focus would be ok, and took the photo.

    Turned out to be one of my favourites, which goes to show that sometimes skill has nothing to do with photography :) Although to be fair I do take a lot that way and I had got reasonably good at it.

    I will try and get a new subject up for March by 2pm today!

    And many thanks to Garf for the thumbnails, it was really good to be able to find those so easily, all updated.

    I thought it was a brilliant comp this month, so many fantastic shots.

  27. Paulie Tandoori

    Paulie Tandoori shut it you egg!

    I have a list on lappie at home, there were loads of photo's that were picked by people, far too many to list imo. I was almost cross-eyed after more than an hour of counting up the votes (of which there were also loads).

    Shows what a good selection of entries there were this month, that so many people had so many favorites.

  30. selamlar

    selamlar is aware of the irony.

    I got TWO points! Thats the most points I have ever got (in fact the only points I have ever got!) so on the basis of that I am now going to jack in my career and start up again as an artist. <smug>

    Nicely done Barking, thanks to Garf for caps.
