>>>Voting-Challenge 229: On the Edge<<<
9 months ago

So – on behalf of Stefan – it’s time to get voting. A special warm welcome to newcomers Steve and Max and another to MikePDX for his first entry in a Competition. Clearly winning the last Exhibition has given you a taste for victory    Also a ‘well done’ to Art for a very fine last minute recovery.

Ok, here is how this goes: In each gallery -- Exhibition and Competition -- you have 16 points (votes) to give out among your favorites (do not vote for your own entries). Please vote in both galleries. In each gallery, you must assign 4 points to one photo, and then you can share the remaining 12 points as you wish, but you cannot give 4 points to another image in the same gallery. Other entries can get 1, 2, or 3 points – until the 16 run out. And, in addition to allocating 16 points per gallery, you can award Honorable Mentions; just click on the "H" instead of a point-number. There's no limit on the number of H’s you can give. H’s have practical value as well as glory; they are a tie-breaker when entries' point totals are equal.

In the voting page given below, if you use the same login name upon returning, you can make changes up until voting closes. Be sure to ‘Save’ your completed vote, so it will be there if you want to come back later to review/change. It's useful to view the entries full-size before voting, either stepping through them or in slide-show mode. Mere thumbnails simply don’t carry the impact of a larger image, and it honors the photographers to respect their work by seeing it in large-view.

If you are new to the voting, I think you will find it wonderfully easy, thanks to Warren's wonderful voting machine, invented many years ago and still going strong. Voting period is from now until 9 pm (GMT) on Wednesday, March 5th, 2014.

Here is a handy time checker: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

The Results post will appear as soon as possible after tabulation (it sometimes takes more time than we’d wish). Our overall top pick in the Competition Gallery is the winner and earns the photographer the honor of setting a theme for the next challenge, and moderating that challenge round.

As always, on behalf of all in the forum our grateful thanks and continuing appreciation for pBase's generosity in hosting our challenges and to Warren Sarle for his Magical Voting Machine.

Please vote, your vote matters!
