"Limelight"

Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage

Cast in this unlikely role
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact

[Chorus:]
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme

Living in a fish eye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can't pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend

All the world's indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another's audience
Outside the gilded cage

[Chorus]

Stranger

I have no heart to lie

OK... I'll have a go. I've used this picture already for a different set of lyrics, but I think it fits here too:

Tough call. All work well in one way or another, but I guess I must decide. So,

*1
*2
*3 1+2+3
*4 1+2
*5 1+2+3


Oh, hey wait. Can we vote for more than one? Looks like PJ might have done that. (I swear I'm not trying to cause any trouble).
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
Oh bugger, I thought I'd corrected the voting, actually I've messed it up. Well spotted BBI Natrix!!
The correct scores should be:-
*1
*2
*3 1+2+3
*4 1
*5 1+2+3
Sorry, I wasn't trying to cheat, it's not in my nature!!!
Can someone please check up on my incompetence and make sure the scores are right again???? Thanks
MOD
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
as far as i can see the scores are correct! at the moment its a tie between no's. 3 and 5 with both on 3 points! close or what??!! LOL keep em coming! ;-))
MOD
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
ok so if we close the voting now it will be a tie! so we need at lease one more vote and move on or do we wait and see??
BBI Natrix Posted 11 years ago. Edited by BBI Natrix (member) 11 years ago
I suppose you could add to the rules that ties split off to two additional contests, but the exponential growth in number of concurrent contests could make our heads spin!
How about a runoff (maybe after 14 days or 10 days or 21 days 12 hours [no, that's too long]), where we all re-vote between the two deadlocked photos?

well i was kind'a hoping that with over 100 members now that more than a couple of people would get involved and start having fun! but i like you idea so i may come to that.

i will leave it until this Friday and then we'll look to a re-vote if no one has settled the deadlock!

Here's a proposal going forward: The first photo to 3 votes wins
MOD
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
yer thats a good idea! ok we'll do that, voting will close on Friday (09/11/07), if no one votes the first to three wins (which is David's shot, and rightly so coz its a great shot!!) so if ya wanna vote get them in asap!
MOD
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
OK thats it voting over **congrads to DAVID** a well deserved vicroty for a very good shot, well don e David!!!
MOD
shutterBRI PRO 11 years ago
David, please open a new challenge using the above format...thanks and congrats!
DavidDMuir 11 years ago
Sorry chaps. Too excited on Friday with my win, too busy on Saturday with a DIY project, to notice I'd won the Rush photo challenge too. When I finally got on the Internet, I spent the whole evening posting and describing photos from Friday's event.

However, it's done now. Enjoy!
