Loud ~ Top Ten Poll

TOP TEN
Your turn now. Choose One that best depicts this weeks theme:

Joanne ~ Civil War
 
 8

Amalie ~ Tall Ship
 
 16

Doc ~ Young Hero
 
 16

Jenna ~ Squalling for Grass
 
 12

Goldendawn (Annie) ~ Hats off to Her
 
 19

Jazzmaniac (Jim) ~ Town Crier
 
 6

Amyukalichick (Amy) ~ Hot Air
 
 7

Bumblebike (Matt) ~ Flashy
 
 4

Rmgrant (Rachel) ~ Train
 
 11

Cyn ~ Cymbals 'n drums
 
 4

Ok, Ok... I confess... the theme was a hard one, but you all came through beautifully! Many of you had the same 'problem' I had with the theme, in that we usually tend to steer clear of noise and bustle.

I loved the variety. There were the usual selection of photos that made me smile, those that made me laugh, and those that made me misty eyed. Then there were the fun photos. All the photos were loud, in colour, style, or sound. The ones that won me over, in the end, were the ones that drew me in. Whichever way I looked at it though, the photos were all a huge pleasure to look through : )

 

..ooOoo..

Dancers accompanied by drums, stomping and what I can only describe as yelling... a lot of it

 

..ooOoo..

 

Herewith the Top Ten in no particular order. Congratulations to you all on inspiring photography!

 

..ooOoo..

Naturally, there are a few honourable mentions. I personally think that voting 10 out of all the entries is just way too hard. I have to be careful or the 'honourable mentions' will go on forever : )

  38. Congratulations to all and also for the intriguing theme. How to put up something for the eye that is usually for the ear. People have been amazingly creative. It was so much fun to go among the Top Ten pictures and the Honorable mentions and see (or hear) the pictures. I slept on it and cast my vote.

  54. Buch, it's there. Try refreshing your page. A Ctrl+F5 should work. There was a time today when Multiply was doing updates. You might have tried at an awkward time.

  59. i never did see a poll on the page... maybe that feature isn't compatible with Windows 98... shrugs

    ReplyDelete
  60. Aw... sorry about that, Buch. I have no idea if it is compatible or not. It would be interesting to find out.

    ReplyDelete
  61. no one else complained maybe bush isn't a member?

  63. If he wasn't a member, he wouldn't have access to this post at all. Having something not show up for you on a site is a common problem, especially if you are running on an older OS.
