    Well we got what we were hoping for with this months challenge. 63 photos in all this month! Good luck to everyone who submitted this month.
    Please keep in mind the new restrictions for voting this month.

    Free-for-All

    Also thanks again to Joby.com for sponsoring another great challenge.

    You may notice that in the gallery some files appear larger then 150KB, but every photo included was less then 150KB when uploaded to the gallery.

    Please keep in mind that we are trying to keep this challenge anonymous (and unbiased) when it comes to both the submitting and the voting. Please avoid sharing your opinions about any specific photos until after the voting has completed and the winner is announced.

    Please read the titles carefully in order to avoid confusion before voting. The photos may not be sorted in the correct order so to ensure you view them in proper order scroll to the bottom of the page and where it says "Display Options" ensure you select Sorted By: "Image Name" Sort Order: "Ascending" and then click on the "Show Images" button.

    After viewing the photos please take the opportunity to vote for your favorite. Good luck to all. If there are any questions please let us know.

    The mods/admins of thephotoforum.com may decide the winner from the top five submitted photos. The winner of the photo challenge will be contacted by Private Message (PM) on the day that the winner is announced. If the winner does not respond to the PM within 30 days they will not receive their prize and it will be put towards a future challenge. If we are unable to ship the intended prize to the winner do to his/her location we will provide another prize of equal value.

    The polls will be open for the next seven days.

    so what the hell howcome some images are like 240kb and we were told 150?! 150 is like thumbnail sized and its kind of rediculous because people cant see the photos as well. lame.

    Pretty funny. After I looked at every picture and made notes, I looked again at the numbers I wrote down and finally got it down to eight. Then I looked again and ended up with two. I couldn't decide which one. But that means a whole list of them stood out, eight jumped out at me and I still had to pick only one. The other 55, just about any one of them could have been a contender, it's just personal taste.

    Great Work everyone.

    I'm impressed!

    Very hard choices. Partly due to the apples and oranges nature of the free for all. Great work! Given the large number of entries, a fairer way to do this is to have each photo rated on a scale or two e.g., technical 1-5, Artistic 1-5. Then the winner is chosen based on the highest average ratings. This avoids having 80 people look at earlier photos in the list and only 30 making it to the end to look at the later photos. It also gives losing entries (like mine) some feedback as to whether the photo was good or okay or 'nearly the best'. Just a thought.
