Voting Time is Here!

Well the hard part is done… shooting, developing, photoshopping, entering. Now comes the fun part, Voting.

We had nearly 40 participants from all around the world, a nice turnout and some really superb images. I always love to see the variety of perspectives from the entrants, we all have our own vision.

Where Do I view the Images?
The images are hosted on "iPernity" in my "HCBEntries" account (http://www.ipernity.com/doc/306743/29733305/in/album/601255). To see the images on a black background (my personal preference) simply click the "slideshow" button on the upper right side of the page layout. See below:

How to Vote.
OK, it's easy. Once you have made your choices for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place images simply go here to vote (http://form.jotform.co/form/31970314807858).

This simple form will allow the data to be both emailed to me and to be recorded in an excel spreadsheet, making the task of adding up the point totals far easier. As always 3 points will be awarded for 1st place, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd place selection.

DO NOT VOTE HERE IN THE FORUM. Votes placed in this thread and not in the form will not be counted. Feel free to discuss your votes and I will post voting data to this thread but remember, if you just place your vote here it won't be counted. You have to fill out the super-easy form.

Voting Rules:

You can only vote once.
Remember, no voting for your own image.
Votes must be placed in the form to count. Feel free to share how you voted here after if you like.
Voting ends on the 31st.


So, to summarize:

1) View the images. (http://www.ipernity.com/doc/306743/29733305/in/album/601255)
2) Vote using the form at this location. (http://form.jotform.co/form/31970314807858)
3) Pop up a message here that says "I voted" and feel free to discuss your choices. Remember, no telling which is yours if you're taking part.

If you notice anything wrong with either the gallery or the voting site please let me know ASAP. That includes if you don't see your favorite image in the pop-up lists.

Thanks and good luck to all the participants!

Kent--I didn't see all the pictures listed on the form that were on your website.
What did I do wrong?

Gang,

I will review the entries in the voting form. It was a cut and paste from the submission spreadsheet, I'll get it worked out.

People will also be able to re-vote if needed as I do not want anyone to miss out on an image they may have liked to vote for.

Dan, many of us lamented our mediocre results that weekend. Mine is nothing special, I participated anyway . ;-(

My bad, I don't read! I don't read instructions, and I should. I forgot that it was only a weekend event. Sorry.

Despite my best efforts there were two images that were not available for selection in the voting form.

They were:
Blackness
Boulevard of Winter Dreams

I highly recommend you have a look at them and if you'd like to vote for them simply recast your vote, I'll take the latest entries of any duplicates.

My sincere apologies to those involved and hopefully if you're interested in voting for either of these images you will return to the voting site and cast your vote accordingly.

Thank you.

No problem Dan. Part of the "Challenge" is the limited time component...not easy to snag a compelling photo in a specified time period necessarily.

Hope you cast your votes for your favorites when you have time.

Looking forward to the results! A very diverse group of images and as it's discussed at each edition some seem to stretch the definition of street, but I thought there were some great entries.

Just voted. I didn't know about this edition of the Decisive Challenge until after the shooting weekend (I must have missed the email). Fortunately, I had taken a few photos that weekend - alas, nothing that great but I submitted something anyway. Thanks for putting this on again Kent! Good luck everyone!!
