Thanks for the link - you were up against some really strong competition and your shot is something to be proud of.

Thanks Chris.

The money and the expensive camera usually brings out the big guns....

Re: close but no cigar


I came across I-Shot-It the other day. Is it worth doing? Ive not heard of them before. I entered the free competition to see what its all about. Ive noticed they don't tell you how many votes the winners got, so you can't see how you fared against them.

Re: close but no cigar


The winners are judged by the pre determined and listed judges. Not the general public.

The top prize in the B&W contest this last time was over 6K cash and a 8K Leica MM. It has been as high as $20,000 cash and an MM.

It's sponsored by Leica.

This last B&W contest only about 7% of all the entries got n Mark of Excellence and only one winner.

Which contest did you enter?

I stand corrected. I think the free comp is one where you can vote. I've never entered that one.

Ah so its only the free contests where the public votes?
Ill give a paid one a go then.
Only 6 hours left of voting on this one I'm in. I don't think my 9 votes will cut it tho ;-)

Re: close but no cigar


Only my 2 pennoth, but I personally wouldn't enter any of these competitions. I understand all the reasons why people do but for me it is a bit of a "gravy train" and degrading. It has become a bit of an industry. I take pictures for me, not for some "expert" who is weary of seeing 1000s of photos.

Each to his or her own of course. I get published (usually in the U.S.) not that it is worth it for the money, but I don't want someone who has their own set of values judging mine.
