I did miss one entry in August's FREE PHOTO CONTEST

I JUST sent them to my judges, so I still had time to shoot them an email with this attachment
so it is fair to who I forgot to include in the blogpost....

But, fortunately for YOU, you can look at all the pictures
ONE MORE TIME today...
including the first one listed by Jacob Mc. (Who I forgot to list the first time!, so sorry Jacob!)

Please, if you entered a photo into this contest and I somehow mistakenly forgot to list it here,
let me know ASAP and I will repost the blogpost to include yours. I will do this before I contact any judges, but you must let me know as soon as possible if this occurred.

Hopefully (*fingers crossed*), I didn't forget any entries this time.
Now, I ask you....
if YOU were a judge and YOU had to pick only ONE photo to choose to win this month's contest,
which one would it be????

And now....
the theme for September's 


Send me your "Shadows" photo no later than midnight on Sept. 30, 2011

Valerie said...

Every picture is an awesome piece of work but I like the one from CrazyCris because it evoked my imagination. I felt a story coming on when I looked at it.

L. D. said...

I was anxious to see where everyone had ventured to take pictures. All are such wonderful photos.

SquirrelQueen said...

Each one is gorgeous, I love all the different takes on the theme.

Grandmother Mary said...

Nancy/BLissed-Out Grandma said...

Seriously, I love them all. So many different approaches and techniques. Wow.

Im sorry to say you forgot to put my photo in

Linda Reeder said...

There's quite a lot of geography covered in these photos!

Debbie said...

these are just amazing, so many talented people!!!

diane b said...

They are all very good and varied. I like the drama in Arti's.

Far Side of Fifty said...

Me too..I sent you one:) These are all wonderful:)

CrazyCris said...

Oh my what beauties! I'm glad I'm not in the judges' shoes! ;o)

If I had to choose, I think I'd go with Arti's. Looks like a glacier river rushing through a glacial valley and just brings back so many memories from my recent trip to New Zealand!

@Valerie: when I took that picture it kind of felt like we were in the middle of a story! Just walking, and walking and walking towards the clouds... wondering where the reservoir had disappeared to! The clouds teasing us with glimpses and then hiding it all again, as if playing a game. Twas a beautiful day during a very dry summer in Mallorca... :o)

Andrea said...

As usual they are all wonderful, it is difficult to choose just one. Congratulations for the success of these photo contest you are hosting.

Country Gal said...

All are such fantastic photos again I couldnt choose just one! Have a wonderful day !

CrazyCris said...

Poor Jacob! Good thing you caught that in time, 'cause his photo is not at all "bland and boring"! The woman reminds me about how I've felt on numerous occasions gazing at water. :o)

Debbie said...

happy to see them once again!! gorgeous!!
