Having a hard time deciding on your favorite?

Comparing the original size of each image can help and is recommended. Photos should not only be judged by the chameleon displayed, but also on composition and image quality.

I gotta say, I am pretty disappointed to see that both of my pictures of Sammy were cut from the final list. Could have sworn the one of him go after a snail was a winner...

aww that's too bad. I pretty much stopped entering in the photo contests. It caused me too much grief. Haha. No matter how hard I worked to get a great picture or how awesome I thought it was, it wouldn't go anywhere. Maybe I took it too seriously, so I stopped.

Having to narrow the entry count down to 16 every month is a horrible job and I really hate to disappoint people. I'm open to those that want feedback on their photo before or after the entry deadline. The competition this month was much higher than usual so I encourage everyone to keep trying.

Yeah I am very competitive. And I really wanted a little ribbon below my name haha. I would have been happy with third just to get one. But in the end I am happy to take a break, one day I will enter again when I can take it more lightly LOL.
