    I was going to post a pic but went to the page and no entries!

    Can someone confirm I'm looking at the right page please?

    Hey - it's the photographer, not the equipment that makes a good shot. That's why I never win :(

    im moving house on sunday as i start a new job in cumbria. ive not got a house sorted as of yet, so im living in a B&B for the foreseeable future, and living at my parents during the weekends, so im gonna be about very infrequently until im settled, photography takes a back stage at the mo, ive not touched my camera for a few weeks, all i have to do is shoot the glitterati on saturday, and thats all my photographic chores sorted until further notice! :clap:

    witters, I have had to delete your entry as it was in the wrong place. Use the 'New Article' button as opposed to replying to the main thread ;)

    here

    Cheers

    I won't be entering as a gesture of support for Seany.

    Well as much as I like Sean (having met him) I'm not sure boycotting the photo comp is the correct thing to do. Stevegreen has put a lot of work into the comp and it would seem unfair to do so.

    I really want to enter this month but i have been very busy and not had enough time so far to take a shot. I have a shot that would be perfect that I took in Sept 04 but of course I can't enter it...

    Hopefully I'll find time before the closing date.

    That's the worse excuse I've ever heard for not entering a competition :D
    I'm off this week so will be looking for stuff to photograph and should have an entry in by the end of the week.

    You couldn't win though Tony :laugh:

    You have to vote and can't vote for yourself, so you would not be able to vote, meaning your entry would be disqualified.........if you get my meaning :confused: :laugh:

    Hey, I don't need excuses, I know I'm cr@p! :)

    I know its got nothing to do with SteveG, and I'm sorry it might temporarily affect his competition, but its a way I can express my disgust at what happened.

    And now I'm going to zip it, before I'm :censored: :p

    Hey Richard,

    Couple of points,

    Nobody is under any obligation to enter the competition, people either will or won't, and, it's not my competition. Yes, I run it, but it's there for forum members who want to enter. If you read the recent 'discussions' about archive shots you will know the reasons why it was started :)

    Sean resigned, he wasn't forced out, it was his decision, and yes, I was as sad as most that he decided on that course of action. It's a loss to the forum in my opinion but there you go.

    As far as I am concerned, everyone is entitled to their opinion and also free to take what action they feel necessary to back their opinion up.

    I have no problem with your decisions in any way, you are certainly not going to be chastised by me.

    Be nice to see you entering next month :)

    You obviously have no idea what happened if you are posting comments like that. Sean left by his own free will and I'm sure he would not want to be made into some kind of martyr for it !
