  2. I picked my favourite rhyme. So many to choose from but there are both rhymes and songs so I narrowed it down to only the rhymes according to the theme.

    Congrats to everyone mentioned.

  3. It took me several minutes to choose my vote!!!!! However, I just had to pick Row, Row Row your boad because the photo itself left me awe struck!

  4. Mine is actually one of the oldest Mother Goose Rhymes there is, the title is misleading by mentioned the word 'song'. It isnt a song.

  22. Many beautiful entries. I narrowed mine down to the true Nursery rhymes, not songs. I guess the retired school teacher in me, is saying, read your assignment and follow it correctly.. I was a hard nosed teacher Can't help it.
    Congratulations to all those in the Top10 and the honorable mention. I am sure that it is a hard job to pick out that many from all the wonderful photos submitted.

  25. OMG the photo's chosen this week were all my favorites , how to choose, how to choose !! Sigh I have chosen but I am to torn by a few others too !!! Great job Cherie !!!!

  26. I think the line between what makes it a nursery rhyme or song is a very fine one.

    Each country/culture has different rhymes and songs, and different definitions of what they are. So what some see as a song, many others know as a nursery rhyme, something they learned in kindergarten or preschool.

    There are no restrictions when it comes to art and interpretations of themes..as long as we as the viewer can link the themes to that picture..even vaguely because in the end it is about the BEST picture! Which is another reason why there are no restrictions about manipulating your pictures either, (while not for everyone) if done correctly and professionally, it is a form of art in its self

    I urge everyone not to get boxed in by themes, to think further and deeper than is expected, its the only way we can really grow as artists!

  27. How in the world were you able to choose? Whew, hard choices, they were all so, to steal the word, enchanting! Great week everyone!

  54. I have to say it's disappointing that only 100 people have voted when there are so many entries. Congratulations to Amber for a wonderful photo and to all those other wonderful runners up.

    ReplyDelete
  55. the poll blog is open to contacts only, and not everyone wants to add themeselves as a contact...for some unknown reason..

    ReplyDelete
  56. why can't i vote twice? oh well, we have a winner. lol!

    ReplyDelete
  57. also as was show previously some do not wish to have a contest prefering only to blog the picture as usual - and perhaps some have not been able to choose a favourite - I know I struggled!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I need a vote for each participant

    ReplyDelete
  59. I was away from my computer at voting time so couldn't participate in the polling. The top 2 pics were my faves and I would have had a hard time picking one. Thanks for including me in the 10 runner up pool. Quite an honor really considering all the talent entering.
