Spot Wins First Runner Up

Remember this photo I posted last week?


Well, I decided to look up the photo-contest community snapshot_hunter, which posts a theme, and then people comment with an original photo to match the theme. Then members vote amongst the pool, and then there's a run-off poll of the most popular pix. The theme happened to be "Delectable," and I thought that the Spot-eating-snow pic was perfect!

Check this out: http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1505714&mode=results

"Wow," says I! That's my first go and I got into the finals and ended up with nearly a quarter of the votes out of four contenders. It was "a very close race," as the mod said.

I really like this comm. It's so cool to see everyone's different takes on the theme, and everyone is quite civil and (dare I say?) nice. You don't have to play to join, but you have to join to vote. There are usually quite a few entries, so I track the comments and try to comment on the ones I think I might vote for to make it easier to find them later. I encourage you to join (One of us! One of us!), but do vote on the photos. Shilling for votes is bad, so make sure you're voting on merit, not on who you're friends with.

I still can't believe that coffee pic isn't bottom... it looks deelish, but goddamn it's a horrible picture technically!

It gave me a little vertigo, but I voted for the wine on its composition, even though I don't care for wine.

Of the two, the wine definitely beats the coffee.
