    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow! All of the top 10 entries were very good this week. It was hard for me to chose one.... I saw only a very few of the others that were entered... and they were very good as well.... I wanted to make my choice this week without looking first to see who is in the lead... When I finally did look to see who was in the lead at this moment.. I was not at all surprised....The shot was very well taken.... Congratulations to everyone who made top 10.... You all have wonderful pictures...Good Luck to each of you.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I agree..It is a hard choice to chose the best.

    ReplyDelete
  60. awesome selections Tint...you did a great job this week..our busiest yet!!

    Thanks everyone for playing along with such great spirit...good luck Top Ten!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Just a note... I was over on the PP page a few minutes ago and someone had asked if the entries had been counted... I tried to count and came up with 239 single entries.. That does not count if anyone had put in entries that went into Private Messages, or that left entried on the web pages of the Admins. Or people who might have left links to thier pages on other peoples pages and forgotten to get over to the PP page and leave thier entry....

    At any rate with even 239 entries, and if even 1/4 of them were as good as the top 10 that were chosen.. The Admins must have had a hard time chosing only 10...

    My hat goes off to all Admins on their hard work and Congrats to all who made the top 10, and also to everyone who added an entry....

    ReplyDelete
  62. I was away and could not play.... but I visited the top ten... wonderful and diverse photos.... now I need to vote....

    ReplyDelete
  63. It's going to be tough to choose between these!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Congrats to the top 10 and Good Luck!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Now these were some good choices!!
    Congrats to the top 10, they were all favorites of mine!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ohhhhhhh I LOVE the Perfectly Pink Pelicans!!! Amazing photo! Great choices for the top ten and I didn't have a difficult time voting...I knew the moment I saw the photo it would be in the top ten! Although they are all great photos...this one in particular stirred within me a sense of peace and mystery! Well done Team!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  92. I have never heard of Pink Pelicans!! And since Pelicans are in my top ten list of birds, I am biased enough to say, this rates a Top Ten in my book!! I do not envy the judges, the top ten has to be just about an impossible choice to make!!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. John has a top ten list of birds ? I wonder which bird is number one lol Does it start with "P" hmmmmm !!

    I voted and I cant wait to see who wins , very tight race ~ great choices !!
