2012 Calendar Nominations
« on: September 30, 2011, 08:46:31 AM »
It's time to start nominations for the 2012 BigBendChat Calendar!

Any photo that has ever been posted to BigBendChat by a member that has not already been in a calendar is eligible for nomination. Keep in mind that horizontal landscape images will work best. I am open to combining images from a single photographer, should anyone have any panoramic or vertically composed shots that would look good together.

For anyone new, here is the 2011 calendar: http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/from-the-administrator/2011-calendar-available-for-purchase/

UPDATE: the deadline for nominations will be midnight, October 31.
Ok, so the real deadline will be when I lock up the topic the following morning, as I'm too tired to stay up until midnight.

Don't forget to provide info on who took/posted the picture and preferably which topic it came from. Gallery pictures are fair game, too.

For example, WL2's Clouds in Mexico

Richard--can I re-nominate my nominations from last year?  Can I post pictures now into the gallery that can be part of the contest?  What if people are in the shot?

Yes, yes, and yes.

You can also re-nominate other people's nominations from years past, as long as they haven't already been in a calendar.

Thank you Richard for posting a few of mine!!!  :icon_biggrin:  A couple may be repeats, but here are all of my submissions for this year all together in one post.  I wish I could had been out there more, but I had to save my time off for my upcoming surgery tomorrow.  I don't know how long it will be until I can sit at a computer, but I will check back in as soon as I can.  I sure wish I had an ipad right about this time!!!

"I have an excellent profession, but I don't enjoy it near as much as I do when I am in the heart of the wilderness, surrounded by marvelous creations, and efforting to capture what I see and feel so I may share it with others."
