January 1st Addendum
Greetings to All!
I have decided to extend the CameraQuest Street Photography 21/2.8 contest entries until January 31st.
Make sure your entry lists the City, Camera, and Lens
You are on the honor system, but entries missing this info will be disqualified.
If shot with film, the type of film and developer would be appreciated.
Besides 2012, it is also open to any 2013 image you can make before January 31st!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Below the image is a field most contest members seem to be using for titling their image. Instead use that field for the Camera, Lens, City info.
the tally page has been disabled to encourage people to look at all of the entries before voting.
yes, this has been a learning experience.
Looking backward I would have done a few things differently, but I trust the members to determine the best entries.
The top voted entries will have ALL of their votes carefully evaluated before a winner is determined.
