I respect your choice.

Somehow I managed not to see the contest this month.

I often wish I could vote for several entries. But I really, really like the Photo Contest.

comes down to a handful of votes!

Hey Grumpy, want to collaborate on the theme for the next contest? With a 'photo' finish like this I think it's fitting

I think I'm running the August contest, so I'll be in touch.

This was a hoot, wasn't it?

"Hello Kitty" is a great photo. I almost voted for it.

Almost.

It really is a perfect photo. Great lighting, composition, processing and subject matter. The kitten is adorable. You did it justice.

supposed to be a 'purrfect photo'. And yeah, that was fun! There were so many others that deserved to up there with us but that's the nature of contests. It isn't about 'winning', it's about showing everyone the things we see.
