Arrow Nominations for January POTM

January 2010 Photo of the Month Nominations



It's time to rummage through the gallery, or your favorites, and find the shots uploaded to the gallery in the past month that stand above the rest. POTM nominations should be compositionally sound and have few technical flaws (including wb, dust spots and sharpness).


Nominations will be open from February 1st, 2010 to midnight, February 7th, 2010 Pacific Time.

Rules:

* The image must have been posted in the gallery during January 2010
* Each member may nominate up to 2 images per month.
* Please do not nominate images that have already been nominated.
* Please do not nominate an alternate version of a photo that has been posted twice on the forums if there are only minor changes.
* To make it easier for the moderators to find the photos, please use the "linked thumbnail" under the photo. Just copy and paste it into your post. If you're unfamiliar how to post images into a thread, read the first part of How to Post Images in the Forums.
* Remember to include the member's name along with their photograph.

Judging/Voting:

* Voting will be open for 7 days after the poll is posted. The earliest it will be posted is 1 day after nominations end..
* Every PC member will get one vote.
* If there are less than 5 entries no voting will take place.
* In the event of a Tie for First Place, a second 7 day tie breaker vote will happen.

Which two pics would you like to narrow it down to, Russ?

Fred, how embarrassing! I originally put all 10 in as a shortlist and then quickly culled them to the final 2 via an Edit. I rechecked to ensure that only the final 2 posted.....okay. Thankfully I came back hours later to find.....VERY mysteriously.....that my edit had reverted back to the 10. I'm baffled my that malfunction.

What I was doing was opening 2 browsers, one to drop nominees into and the other to search thru the several pages of submittals. Upon getting all of my potential nominees (shown then only as links) I saved so that I could see them all at once. I then quickly edited it down to the final 2. I even added a comment in my (I thought) final edit that the 2 were of 10 shortlisted ones and hoped that others would nominate some/all of the others. I also encouraged everyone to scan thru the ENTIRE month's submittals.

In the future, can I use Favorites as this temporary interim storage.....and do so more privately?

I pretty much do it the same way as you. I have two windows open, one for the POTM thread and one of the gallery pics. I select and copy/list all the ones I like in the thread and then pare it down to two before I click "submit reply."

Yes, you could use the favorites as an alternative method.

Just a reminder that nominations close in three days. Please nominate your favorites for January!

Please use the linked thumbnail and not the BB code or direct link when posting your nominations, thanks! (It makes it so much easier to find the photos to award the 'POTM Nominee plaque' and for posting the poll thread. )

This was the toughest POTM nomination for me. There were SO many good ones this month! Good luck to everyone!
