Challenge #4 is now close and the voting is open effective Wednesday 16-mar at 00:01 EST. I have enjoyed managing this challenge and hope that all members and visitors to the Nikon Cafe will vote for the excellent entries. The cutoff for voting will be at midnight EST on Saturday 19-Mar 2005 (4 days voting period). The winner to be announced on Sunday 20-Mar 2005. Voting rules are the same as Challenge #3 which means: 1. Anybody can vote but may only vote one time. If a voter has an entry, they may not vote for their own image. 2. Each person that votes will have 6 points to be awarded. Voters will vote for their top three choices only, by awarding 3 points for first place, 2 points for second place, and 1 point for third place 3. When voting it should be kept in mind that the theme for this challenge is FEELING BEST GENERATOR. It is recognized that technical excellence and artistic beauty may play a role in the voting but in the end the image that generates the strongest feeling to you will receive your first place vote. 4. Be sure to identify your first through third place finishers by including their name and title of their image (if shown) and the numbers of points awarded 5. In the event of a tie in the contest, the administrator will decide who the ultimate winner is. To preserve an independent judgment for a possible tie, I have decided not to participate to the voting. All my best wishes to all contestants. The winner of this competition will have the privilege of selecting the next Challenge #5 Theme and managing the competition. Note to Gordon: I'm sorry not asking for your permission before doing a cut and paste of the voting rules from your post. They are so clearly written that I can't help myself. Shame on me.
