The voting booth is now open, and all members of the Nikon Cafe are invited to cast a ballot. I'm keeping the booth open until Monday night at midnight so the folks who went on the Florida shoot will have a chance to participate. Every voter will have a total of 22 voting points to award... 11 for for artistic value and 11 for technical merit. You may award between 0 and 4 points for each of these categories to an image. In order for your ballot to be valid, all of your alloted 22 points must be awarded, so you'll need to vote for several pictures. Contestants cannot vote for their own entry. The theme of the contest is the innocence and joy of childhood. Vote by specifying the name of the photographer, and a separate value for T (technical merit) and A (artistic value). Here's a link to the submissions: https://www.nikoncafe.com//forums/viewtopic.php?t=295 Since this is an informal contest, and the contestants will value your feedback... particularly if they are of the "wow" variety... feel free to make comments about why you voted for a particular picture if you wish. It will add to the fun, and I doubt that it will sway anyone else's votes. I'll announce the winner shortly after the voting period is over. The winner will select the theme for CAFE CHALLENGE #3, and manage the contest.
