April 2010 Contest Votes

Voting will run from 25 to 30 Apr 2010. Deadline for votes is 5pm (Central).

Only those that entered the contest may vote. All other votes will be deleted. If you did not enter, but would like to comment on an entry, please post your comments in the Contest Discussion thread.

Vote for the 5 best entries in order (only one person per place).

You cannot vote for your own image. If you do, your votes will be deleted.

Note, to encourage everyone to vote, voting this month is a prerequisite for winning. I will make an exception if you will be out of town during the voting, but you must let me know in advance.

Example Vote:
Pick the top five contest entries and list in order...

1. Entry X (First Place)
2. Entry A (Second Place and so on)
3. Entry Q
4. Entry S
5. Entry P

This thread will remain closed until it's time to vote.

And as always, when you vote try to include some things you especially liked about your choices…what made them stand out, what impressed you, etc. This is a learning experience!

Re: April 2010 Contest Votes

1) 0lBaldy - I was struck by OlB's entry because it reminded me so much of the stained glass windows in many of the old houses in my past.
2) K GiMiNi - your colors are outrageously rich and lush.
3) CathyH - quite contempory, and most realistic.

This was like trying to determine your favorite flavor icecream...(in my case, butter pecan, pralines & cream or, rocky road.)
Outstanding work, all!
