Tyler from Bluebeast Reptile helped me with this process.

In order to narrow down the initial entry count to 10 photos I run them all through a few filters or phases. I had a harder time than usual this month and could not complete the task in time. Because of this, we have 15 photos in the public vote this month.

If your photo did not make the final cut, you are welcome to send questions to me privately. If you prefer a more public opinion you can create a new thread in the photo contest forum. If so, make sure to upload a copy of your photo entry as your original has most likely been removed.
