All are so lovely.
Done ...... and didn't vote for my own image :)
Vote, folks.
Sadly, halfway through, no more than 24 votes were cast.
Perhaps for this "POTM" another set-up could be considered, such as the much more interesting possibility of members nominating a photo they made themselves. Direct result will be: more participants, more voters and less "bump" messages to keep things going.The current system, whereby even photos taken in the year 2006 are nominated (14 years after dates!) in this section as photo of the month might be called absurd. Innovation is unfortunately not the strongest point of TPF, but I think it really can't hurt to try something new and when I look at the meager score of 24 votes (did I read somewhere the TPF forum has more than 250.000 members?) it doesn't seem to be a luxury either. It's 2020, so let's move forward!
I welcome suggestions for improvement, especially since this is my first month moderating this contest.

Rule #4 You may nominate any photo posted during the month of August 2020 as part of a thread or in the galleries. Photo must have been taken by the poster and all rights must belong to original photographer.

This says nothing about being taken during the month. This discussion has occurred before.

As far as nominating one's own photo, let's do the math. Of 250,000 ( your number ), we'd probably have 100,000 people nominating themselves. Multiplied by the 3 per person allowed, 300,000 photos to scroll through would soon destroy the contest in my humble opinion. I feel this is the reason for the rule in place.

Please, continue trying to make this forum a better and more interesting place!
@Dean_Gretsch wishing you much success on the new responsibilities.

Some of the other sites I frequent use some interesting approaches. Sometimes it's really hard to pick just one image, especially when there's several good choices. Maybe rather then a one vote, one image, one winner, go to three votes per member, with a first place, 2nd, and 3rd, even if there are no prizes awarded except for 1st. At least there's a bit of recognition when the choices are close. Also, I'm not sure having the ability to "change" your vote is such a good idea.
Tough choice this month with so many outstanding images.
Low voting has been a trend for a while. These things are more or less cyclic.
