 The New Picture Of The Month Contest

 

              January 2015

 

                

 

      Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest, and congratulations to all of Decembers nominees. January kicks off a New Year and appropriately, new beginnings.

 

So, let's take time, a short moment, to nominate and give recognition to the photographers and images you think have gone above and beyond on this forum. Pictures that awed and inspired you, deserve to be given credit and recognition. Thank those who shared them in the Forums with a nomination. Whether they be artsy, creative, or downright impressive, this is where we want you to recognize them. If you love it, post it here.

 

When you nominate an image please upload the image to this thread, tell us who took the picture, and where to find it. There's a wealth of quality pictures every month here, and many of us want to see them and recognize those behind the lens. Good luck to all of those involved. Nominations can be made from January 1st, until January 31. The voting poll will be put up January 31st and remain open for 15 days. The Winner will be announced at the close of the poll.

Who knows, maybe you'll be nominated.

 

 

                       To Nominate a Picture:

 

1.The picture must be taken by a member of Mycotopia.net - no self nominations.

 

2. *(Rule adjustment for extended time frame)* Applicable from now forward.

Picture's must be posted to Mycotopia.net during the current contest month, or within the last 15 days of the month prior.

 

3. Please include the member's name, the picture to be nominated, and a link to the post where picture can be found

 

4. Don't forget to vote for your favorite image at the end of the month!

I love this picture. Great timing, technical control, and it has the ability to evoke an emotional response.

From our friend in the great North, Juthro.

I nominate this awesome log sized forest of Cubensis from eatyualive.

 

As much for the beauty of this bulk grow yield, as for the incredible quantity of superbly illustrated tec's this member has contributed, making it almost impossible to select only one photo from this thread:

When you click the save button at the bottom right of a picture you have clicked to full size, it opens in another window. You can then right click on the new picture, and select copy picture. Then you go back to your post, select where you want to place the photo by clicking the cursor in that place and paste the picture. (If you do not have a paste button, pressing control and V will paste a copied picture. 

 

(The simplest of all methods is to do as you did, and I will edit it to the larger version when I see it, so I can see it without glasses)

:cool:

I don't care if it was posted in December.  I'll nominate it this month.

The photographer wasn't responsible for our oversight. 

 

Perhaps the rule about the current month isn't all that good for the contest.  I would vote for a wider window of opportunity for nominations.  Think about it; a pic posted in the last minutes of a month loses out, logistically, in that month, and can't even qualify again?  We need some flex here.

I am very inclined to agree with your point Alder. As a result I have edited to show the now accepted nomination photo, and will adjust the time frame for qualifying entry's to overlap into the previous month for 15 days in the rules.

This is not the first time a photo deserving recognition was posted late in the month, and got skipped over. I consider this a valid request for some flexability, and the point of this contest is recognition, not rigid adhearence to past guidelines.

 

I think a 15 day overlap is fair, do we all agree?

 

(technicly Alder, the photo you linked to was posted in January, but I agree with the premise that an overlap works better)
