Please re-read my comment. As originally drafted (since amended to 3 from each group) by PC, the rules ONLY allowed 1 from each group (aka round) to go forward into the finals. The 2nd or 3rd etc. would NOT. It is very possible that the 2nd in one round could be judged better than the 1st in another IF it had the opportunity. It now does. I was advocating MORE than just the 1 go forward into the finals. There will now be places 1-3 coming out each of 5 groups (aka rounds), comprising 15 finalists. I vaguely recall, although I may be mistaken, that there will be prizes for the top 5 finalists.

Re: 2015 Photograph of the the Year - Round 1

Wow, and I don't mean I'm in awe of the photos (which I am of course). A big error has happened that there is a very old photo of mine here that somehow got mixed up with this POTY. I'm emailing you John at photographycorner1@gmail.com. I've actually noticed some weird tagging on Smugmug, some are tagged with ccc, or POTM??? Sabine's image with her name on the shot with a POTM 4 tag?

Re: 2015 Photograph of the the Year - Round 1

Sorry about that. I didn't get the memo on that one. I looked at my shot and was a little dumbfounded, or maybe just dumb I guess lol. Good idea! Thanks for clearing up that shocker for me

My vote is in, and no it wasn't for mine. I thought there was one that clearly shone a little brighter than all the other stars. Good luck to all!

I'm with Michelle. I wish we were able to vote on more than one, like our top 3.

Re: 2015 Photograph of the the Year - Round 1

100 semifinalists, ie 5 groups/rounds of approximately 20 images each, will become 15 finalists, ie top 3 vote getters from EACH group/round. At some point we need to cull down to the top 5 overall. Presumably your 2nd or 3rd choices out of each group will either warrant being 1st choice for enough others to result in going forward into the finals.....or they never would've made the Final 5 awarded POTY anyways. If each of us voted on 3 from each group x 5 groups = 15 votes per voter, the logistics starts to get a little overwhelming. I think that as is, 100 to 15 to 5 is a good culling process relatively ensuring that the best 15 go forward into the finals from which the best 5 become awarded. This is a popularity contest and there will always be debate over the merits of one image over another......but the rules are the rules and they're reasonable as is IMO!
