    Congrats to all the winner! I'm pleased that I got a mention. Don't know what the points mean but I'll take them! Maybe I can trade them in on a nice meal... perhaps some steak and lobster?

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    For the last two rounds I've entered photos that incorporated my hiking boots while I was relaxing sedately and free(dom)ly.

    I get the message..... NO MORE FEET!

    Thanks to everyone that provided feedback and thanks to all who entered such great photographs.

    The fact my picture wound up in the top ten is testimony to the quality of feedback one can receive from the helpful members of this forum. I was pretty much ready to ask the moderator to remove my entry of the crosswalk symbols (which was apparently a universal dud) and sit this round out when the members of the forum started giving me great tips and suggestions and even photo-editing advice on my other picture. Their help even overcame my inability to use my camera correctly half the time (see my post on the Behind-the-scenes thread for full recap of my blunders) to help me produce the final entry.

    So a big thanks to hawkeye978, KvPhoto, PaulThomasMckee, dlscott56, Debboggy, Llywellyn, emmalou, and especially Sizam for the encouragement, advice and tips on helping me with this entry. It wouldn't have happened without your help. Thanks a ton!

    And a big thanks to the judges! clap.gif

    One question - Since I qualified for the semi-final last round, should the next person on the list get selected as a semifinalist for the semifinals round?

    nope, if you qualify twice (high five!!!) that means you increase your odds. deal.gif

    YAY!!!

    Being my first time entering, I was sure I was going to do something wrong and not even be eligible. Thank you so much judges and everyone who helped me polish up my Escape entry. I'm so excited to be selected for the semi-finales.

    This is the first recognition of any kind I've had for my photography, so it's very encouraging. And now that I've re-read the rules more carefully, the thought of prizes in the next round is even more exciting!!! :giggle

    Congratulations to all the other semi-finalists! Great job everyone and Pat, keep hogging those top spots--less competition is a good thing. rolleyes1.gif (And I could use all the help I can get. :D )

    Congratulations to the semifinalists and everybody that entered since just participating takes guts. All the photos are incredible in their own way.
    clap.gif

    I need to add that I love the threads of members giving feedback and discussing photos. Particularly, I have been impressed with the thread that discuss the process of taking the final photos and showing the different versions until the final was chosen. I will try to do that with mine if my arm allows me. The day after I took my entry, #9, I lost 75% function on my right arm with lots of pain. Please continue with those threads and I will try to participate in discussions as my pain allows.

    Again, great job to everyone and thank you to the judges.

    PS: Read something about farting and Shay, Laughing.gif, poor Shay. He must be very brown.:D

    21-2-43 - shatch -I Can't Breathe!
    22-1-52 - saurora -ADOPTION (A Lifesaving Option)


    So because I am anal, I have the following question. Based on the points above, is my following interpretation of the results correct?

    1st - tsk1979 -Second skin
    2nd - LiquidAir -A Glimpse (tie)
    2nd - urbanaries -o p e n (tie)
    4th - imax -Caged (tie)
    4th - Debboggy -"The Escape" (tie)
    4th - drdane -Free at Last! (tie)
    4th - Pat664422 -Up, Up and Away! (tie)
    4th - traunerk -O Lord, Hear My Prayer... (tie)
    9th - vandana -"Don't fence me in"
    10th - indiegirl -"...can't find a better man..."


    The reason I ask is because I have a gallery on my smugmug page where I am putting my submissions into LPS and I like giving them a caption of where they placed in what challenege. I had already labeled it as 7th place, but then I noticed I was in a 5-way tie.
