I know you guys don't accept excuses so I'll just apologies for the delay.
No excuses necessary. This is all on your own time and we accept you are busy. This all becomes available to us on your timeline, not ours.

Maybe a new thread so those who are not keeping up here due to the random BS (What did they expect) will know the voting is up now.

Thanks Tim for all the hard work. The link & voting all worked for me.
I know last year there was a request or discussion about all the photos submitted being put together for a screen saver did that ever happen? If so where are they if not is it something that can be done? If not for last years submissions maybe this years?

If that's the worst mistake I make, I'm ok with that.

If you pull up the older years, there is a gallery at the bottom of the page. There's more we could do so if you have better suggestions, I'm all ears.

I'll put an announcement at the top of the forum page to bring attention to it.

Intentionally to save you the embarrassment. :lol:

Actually the original image is too cropped to start with. Subject won't fit inside the dimensions unless I skew the photo a lot. Send me another rayZerman.1 and I'll get it up.

Well it was indeed a bit unusual, I thought it well done and if I could have brought that home I would have....... I have done leaded stained glass work in my day, so this impressed me that someone would take all that time. It took up a bit of wall space.

It would be even more impressive if some retired old fart were to do the same thing for Canada on the same scale. Given the size of some of the Canadian Provinces said retired fart will need to be inventive... nudge, nudge, wink, wink, you know what I mean.

It's a very cool piece. The photo is the problem. But I've included your new submission now.

8) Voting is a 5 star system. Click on the highest star you want to award. Rankings are a combination of rating and number of votes.
IIRC, you encourage everyone to rate each photograph not just the ones they like the best, correct? 8-)

Yes. And I thought by releasing all the photos at once would give a more even vote count. Apparently that's not true as there is a 7 vote difference between the most votes and the least votes for a photo.

Voted. As requested, recorded a vote for each image.

Bummer that both extrememarine photos can’t be selected. Both are superb, young man.

From examination of the contestants, me thinks this will be one fine calendar. A mix of scenery, close-ups of the bike, and some "action riding" shots.

Best of luck to everyone.

Thanks again, Tim. This is awesome!!

It says a lot about yourself and opinions others have of you, that when pinged privately and asked "Which of these photos should I submit" that the recommended photos were NOT submitted at all. :D
