    Please vote for my images in National Geographic’s photo contest!



    http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/photo-contest/voting-machine?category=1


    Select “Week 3”


    There are two photos by Bill Lynch. Flickr links to the photos:

    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3222/2753847532_a766e900b4.jpg?v=0

    If you could rate these 10 (and maybe rate the rest 1 if you really want to help me out) I would be supremely grateful for it!

    Power of OT FTW...although the image I initially picked as the best is already leading the pack. :hs:


    Thanks guys.

    Im sorry. But I cant help but think of how pitiful this is. I rated the pictures based on what I thought of them.

    If you think the other people aren't doing the same thing you're kidding yourself.

    It's fine if you just want to rate them on your own opinion...figured I'd ask for the help though. Getting a photo published in NatGeo would be insane.

    If the pictures got through the selectors/editors to make it into the competition they're all considered "worthy" by the magazine. :dunno:

    1. I don't think your photos are the best, so I can't vote for them as such.
    2. Everyone cheats, and I don't think you should be faulted for doing what you need to to get your work published, it's what separates people who do get published from people who don't.

    I gave a lot of them at least 5s. there's not a single 1 in that group and I can't hate that bad. I did give yours 10s though. :)
