    *checks last entry date*

    11 days... I've narrowed my choices down to three, just need to pick one of them. Thank you for the reminder Chrissie :D

    I wonder if a seascapes scene are allowed, there is some rock involved which could count as land partly.

    I hope so, because mine is a seascape. Well, it's got breakers, sea, and mountains.

    My first entry into this competition. Doubt I'll get anywhere, but it's really got me thinking about what I want to phpotograph, and it's really got me working on my technique.

    The point of any AP competition Brendan :) Perhaps Alfred Stieglitz...

    Hey maybe AP should consider having the medals again. I quite like the thought of a medal. :)

    So do I, but then again the AP forum competition has the equivalent of a medal: it's called a mug.

    I'm struggling to choose what to enter for this round... just when I think I've made a decision I look again later and change my mind again

    I used to be decisive but now I'm not so sure :confused:

    It's finding something original and interesting that's my problem. My seascapes just bore me now.
    Maybe I shall just give this one a miss.
    Good luck to you with your choice!

    I didnt... after assessing the criteria, carefully assembling a short list then after much deliberation, head scratching, soul searching and indecision... I let my girlfriend pick! :D

    Haha! Good strategy - or as good as any.

    I do note that all the winners so far have had a dark, dramatic brush applied to them.

    So I went for pale and interesting! lol

    Good luck! I'm keeping up my 100% rejection record. I am going to go for gold on that and enter every round. :D:D

    Evening all. First post etc..

    Sent a picture in for round three and got hooked.

    For this round I knew which photo to send in, then had doubts. I asked my GFs opinion, and finally sent the picture I had first thought of. From other posts I don't seem to be alone in this.

    Enjoying it, and planning a picture for round five.

    Well... Took me 10 days to decide and I've just sent in my chosen image.

    Best of luck to everyone :)

    *fingers crossed*

    Phew - just happened to be reading through the APOY homepage and realised the deadline is 5pm today! So much for my plan to see if I can get something this evening. Had to send the back up image in, think it might be slightly wide of the brief. Oh well. I like it.

    Good luck everyone. :)

    That's what I always do. I didn't get chance to ask her this time so I had to choose the image myself. Don't think I've got much chance this time!

    Good luck everyone.

    I just got home from the weekly camera club meeting and I saw your post Lesley, wondering what it was about. Then I checked the APOY results. Boy was I surprised. And pleased

    Yeah, well done.

    I remember seeing the similar shot posted in the Appraisal Gallery.

    Of cause the comp one is better because as the judges point out the lone figure adds alot.

    But the light in the Appraisal Gallery shot looks more dramatic to me.
