    ReplyDelete
  56. some amazing talent here. regardless of the outcome, i am honored to even be mentioned among the best of these shots and i am glad to be back.

    ReplyDelete
  57. and since i have just come back after a long hiatus, i would appreciate it if someone could answer this question for me - is there a main page where you post your photo entry link? i was responding to visits to my page and their links and then fanning out to visitors of those pages who had left links. i thought that i had covered everyone, but there are at least 5 entries in the top ten that i never saw (probably because they never left a link on my page). am i doing this right?

    ReplyDelete
  58. everyone drops their link on the page with the weeks theme, in this case
    http://fotofriday.multiply.com/journal/item/492/Picture_Perfect_Competition_1_Close_to_Home

    everyone's links should be on that page. i made picture perfect a favorite in my inbox so i can find the recent updates easily. before i did this, the updates to this group were not showing up in my inbox.

    if you only visit the ones who leave links on your own page, then you don't see the ones who didn't make it to your page, so it's best if you use the theme page for the week to find everyone's links

    ReplyDelete
  59. that is what works best for me too

    ReplyDelete
  60. thank you. i will do that from now on.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I also like to put the link to the theme page in my blog so I can use it for reference to check for new entries and posts, etc. After I look at entries I place some sort of a marker (many use mm) so I can find where I left off.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'd quietly slipped in to cast my vote during the wee hours after work but was simply too sleepy to say anything.
    Congratulations to everyone! :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Good morning/afternoon/evening...everyone...just woke to find a very different race than the one I left last night...whooohooo its going to be a close one....

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Jim, the links are all left here on Picture Perfect..on the blog where the theme is posted, you can then choose which ones you would like to visit..its not expected of you to visit everyones enty just as many as you can manage....

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
