VOTING <<<<< GREEN>>>>>>>

A big thanks to all those that took part, some cracking images you now have to vote for.

Anyone can vote and there are still two more days (TILL June 19 @ 9pm GMT) to comment on the entries. The photographers always appreciate receiving feedback on their work.

Your vote matters! Winners are often decided by a single point or HM. Needless to say, do not vote on the CLOSED placeholder, superb though it may be.

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, which is your personal choice for a winner, 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. But …

… 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 used as tie-breakers 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. Voting period is from now until 9 pm (GMT) on Wednesday, June 19th, 2013.

Here is a handy time checker:

The Results post will appear as soon as possible after tabulation (it can take more time than we’d wish). Our overall top pick in the Competition Gallery 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.

If you're new to all this and have any questions on procedure, please post them here and someone will answer. Let the voting begin!!
