Mr Low Notes: Good shot Barb! Looks a lot like the Smoky Mountains where I live.
Small world! My 1 trip south by car was a long time ago and I stayed in Gatlinburg and had a flat tire in Pigeon Forge. Triple A said "Go to a local station to repair it ; we don't know where Pigeon Forge is!" So, I know what it looked like before it became any kind of destination :)
Massive2: so many entries don`t include the word boat
And had someone printed the word "Boat" and photographed it, I'd let the joke run the course. You know it would finish at the bottom end. I am trying to keep things simple, let as many people who want to enter, do so.
Sorry if a few photo's are not the typical definition of a boat. The series description says "Each contestant should enter a photo that they believe illustrates that 1 word. There are no other rules."
I want the series to run as easily as possible with the least amount of complaints. If someone thinks an aircraft carrier is a boat, I'm allowing it. I'm trying not to DQ unless I see a clear misunderstanding of the "word".
That's exactly what I thought, as I drive thru the Smoky mountains just once, and before taking up photography. I'll head that way again sometime I Hope.
Mr Low Notes: Cool shot! My wife seconds that.
Wow - thanks again.
Mr Low Notes: Excellent composition.
Why Thank you!
I have to say, I found this to be a really interesting entry and a favorite as well. If you know, can you tell me what this is? Thanks!
Nice entry Archie (among strong competition too). Congratulations!
Mr Low Notes: That photo is beautiful!! I can't believe someone gave it a .5. Oh, yeah I can. This is DPReview....
As usual, it's nothing personal... The .5 voter only was generous with giving many many .5 and 1 star votes, but he/she did find 1 entry to garnish with 5 stars. Thankfully it didn't skew the results :)
And another super entry - I love it!
Another one - really nice!
Nice Nice Nice Nice Nice!
vbuhay: can you extend this number of entries on this challenge???
I added a second "flower" challenge instead. Get your photo's ready and submit when that challenge opens in 2 weeks. I'm also adding 10 spots to this one.
barb_s: I really enjoyed the entries as a whole. MAny stood out - this included of course. Great shot -and congratulations on the win!
I do plan to get out there again soon. It's so vast, you need a long vacation to really dig into it. That will be years out but in the plans :)
I really enjoyed the entries as a whole. MAny stood out - this included of course. Great shot -and congratulations on the win!
Love it Jill!
This was in 1st place when I left on a long road trip here in the USA... I was really hoping to congratulate you Ruth. This was a fun entry to see. I thought the challenge might be a large mix of things, and it was.
I'm happy to see your photo stayed the leader.
I'm going to be away from my computer when this challenge finishes but I will make it a "point" to congratulate the winner a few days later. Good luck everyone!!!
My daughter is studying astronomy so I will enjoy sharing this challenge with her. The first few entries are amazing. Thank you all. I'm enjoying the view :)
I really like this one also - it's inventive and a great runner up!
