    Have a look at Autumn Photo Challenge

    My photo is "Camrose Golf Course", the black and white one. What do you think?

    Please VOTE for my photo if you like it. This is the first time I have submitted a photo for a contest, and I'm stoked I made it to the top 12!

    Nobody vote for this tool. I voted for another photo just because you came here to waste our time.

    I don't think there was any reason to be unpleasant about it. You didn't have to open his text after reading the title. It's not as though he wasted your time. I agree, however, that someone with only 1 previous post shouldn't be coming here to ask for our votes. Did he even post his photo here?

    What's with all the hate? Even though I just joined this forum, I intend to stick around and contribute as much as I can.

    This happens ALL the time. People open up an account here, post a link to some stupid contest the entered, and then ask us all to vote. It also happens with people wanting Fickr traffic.

    Yes, I did. If I've offended this community by this request, then my apologies. I was just excited to be in the top 12 in this contest, and I was looking for support.

    I don't think anyone (well, most) would have been upset if you had done this and if you had been a regular contributer/participant in the forum. I think the thing that stuck in the craw of some is the fact that this was almost your very first post here.

    Anyway, now that the air is (hopefully) clear, welcome to TPF and congratulations on your accomplishment.

    Thanks, I'll take that hug if it's for me! I think I need it...

    What did you guys think of the photos in that contest? A lot of people have told me they like the one with the little girl. Maybe people connect better with a photo when there's a person in it (especially a little girl).

    All of them are colorful except for mine... my photo is kinda eerie huh? A musician emailed me last night asking if he could use it for free for his album cover... not sure how I should respond to that.

    I generally don't follow links off of this site, so I will not comment on particular images. On the other hand, I will say that I would not freely give away all rights to any image of mine. You might let him use it for free (that is obviously your decision), but make sure that you clarify (in appropriate writing) that the rights remain yours.

    Maybe this person came here just to troll for votes, maybe not... either way, a rude, insulting post like this will turn any new member off. Totally uncalled for.

    Well I am sorry for insulting you and using such angry language. If you are serious about becoming a member here, than welcome!

    You just have to understand that TPF means a lot to me. There are some awesome people here, amazing photographers, and all around it's a great community. And like I said, these posts appear ALL the time and the majority of people who post them never return. So I take back what I said, please forgive me.
