Having a hard time deciding on your favorite?

Slideshow: Click to view slideshow

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.

HEy how do contests work anyway? :eek: Im new!!
You can read all about it under contest rules.. but in a nutshell...........

At the beginning of the month everyone who wants to submits a photo for the contest... The higher quality the photo is the better.

After the 15th or 16th of the months all the entries are narrowed down to 12 to 16 finalist.

Then all members of the forum can vote on which of the finalist they like the best

There are also 3 or so judges that also vote and their vote carries a little more weight.

The 1st 2nd and 3rd place winners are announced at the beginning of the following month

1st place winner gets $50 gift certificate and their photo displayed on the home page for the whole month... All Winners also get little medal icons on their profile.

I think i remember seeing poll results as the voting was going on in past photo contests where you could see who was getting the most votes before it was closed. Is that just something done every now and then, or am i missing the link?
