I'll put a final reminder in Tuesday's newsletter to prompt everyone to get their entries in before the deadline on Friday.

not long left now! the entries will close at noon tomorrow as per other post.  

Thanks for all the entries today , a busy evening for me logging them all! at the moment the sum raised is £472 (plus gift aid if it's applicable - not sure but if so that gets us up to about £590).

You have probably noticed that the pictures are cropping on the right; I will point this out to the judges and explain how they can view the full pictures so that they judge them uncropped. I don't know why this happens on some but not all , I've asked the Administrator if there is a cure but havent heard back so far.

thanks again for the entries and keep them coming in! - well done

Andy ;
The cropping issue often depends on what size monitor { and what resolution } you are using.

As this Forum is done using phpBB software , I just did a quick troll on t'interweb & found the following :

Forgot to say......
In case anyone doesn't know , if you think a photo is being displayed cropped , try the following :
Move the mouse cursor over the picture & right-click.....an option box should now appear , top of which is the option "view image"....left-click on this & the picture should now display correctly { you'll then have to use the "back" button to return to the page you were browsing }

I am still collating the responses and also waiting for a couple of returns. I may be able to get the some of the shortlists  done tonight but more likely tomorrow. The polls will definitely not be up until tomorrow.

please be patient

Wow it seems that this is less of a photography competition and more of a money making project! Being a photography judge myself I can safely say that this is the worst lineup of finalists in a competition that I have ever witnessed. Good Job.

a nice first post! thanks and welcome. :twisted:

It is actually intended to be both, an effort to raise money for '558 and also for club members to compare their photos with other members in afriendly competition

I did have a reply typed-up & ready to post , but I decided not to as I'd almost certainly have been banned from the Forum for breaching several COC rules !!  :evil:  :evil:
Way to go on such a wonderful first post on this forum..........feel free to enter some of your own photos , just to show us 'plebs' just how pitiful our efforts are !
{ Oh , and no doubt you're a fan of highly-manipulated/photoshopped/HDR'd images ?? }
