Calendar is a great thoughtNov 24, 2009 at 10:55 pm #1547938Nia SchmaldBPL Member
Great stuff from the entrants. Also I loved the constructive criticism. It will help me fix similar issues in my photos.Nov 25, 2009 at 11:32 am #1548050Ed HuesersBPL Member
What can be better than a lifetime membership as retirement gets closer.
Thanks for the comments on the picture too, my next camera gear addition is in the plans… A ND filter, I see the need/use in a large percentage of my photos.

Since the entire lot of pictures were submitted electronically, why not post them ALL? I would imagine even the least rated picture would be inspiring and welcomed by all.Nov 25, 2009 at 7:37 pm #1548173Sean MahoneyBPL Member

@trailfrogLocale: Northeast/Southeast your call
Very Sweet! Made me want to shoulder my pack, pick a scene and start walking into the photo.
Congrats to all.Nov 27, 2009 at 8:43 pm #1548519David ChenaultBPL Member

First of all, awesome work! The finalists represent such a diverse body of work. Very inspiring.
Second, I enjoyed the article format enormously. As a complete hack photographer myself, the learning aspect was most welcome.
I do take issue with the winner (and I want to do this without any disrespect to you Sean, or your excellent work). Mesa Arch is 1/2 mile from the road, and at sunrise it's been photographed to death many times over. That would seem to disqualify it, given the stated criteria (emphasis added).
Keep up the good work BPL and fellow forum members.Nov 27, 2009 at 9:21 pm #1548526W I S N E R !BPL Member
Ed, your photo is beautiful.Nov 30, 2009 at 2:29 pm #1549010Ed HuesersBPL Member
Thanks Craig. I've taken a lot of pictures over the years but I do believe this is my best one. I do keep looking for a better one though.Dec 3, 2009 at 11:00 am #1549978Sean MahoneyBPL Member
@cutlassdude70Locale: Southern California
I agree with Craig. Ed, that photo is absolutely stunning. While it's dominated by dark tones, it works incredibly well and almost feels like a painting. I love it! :)Dec 3, 2009 at 11:08 am #1549982John BrochuMember
@johnnybgood4Locale: New Hampshire
Wow, all of those photos are great and some of them are absolutely stunning. I first saw the article a few days ago and when I got home from work that night I pulled out my camera system and started thinking about how I could lighten it up so I would bring it along again!
(Figuring out how to capture shots like these would also provide extra motivation.)Dec 10, 2009 at 9:03 am #1552281Juston TaulMember

Awesome pics guys/gals! Just makes me want to be outdoors even more.Dec 18, 2009 at 3:06 pm #1555294Ryan JordanAdmin

Looks like Patrick Starich idea back in 11-24 for the BPL photo contest calendar has become a reality. It’s nice of BPL to compensate the contributors of the photos for their skill and artistry.Jan 19, 2010 at 10:56 am #1564192Charles HillMember
Just received my calendar today. Thanks BPL for including my photo (Dec. 2010). It's really an honor to be included along with all these great photos.
