Welcome to the Never-Ending Photo Contest !!

See also
The OTHER Never-Ending Photo Contest
The SUPER-SIZED Never-Ending Photo Contest

Here's how it works:

Post a photo, MEDIUM size, and declare the category
-- e.g. black and white, sunset, etc. (see suggested categories)
Wait for someone to challenge it by posting a photo of their own.
Villagers then vote for either the first or the second photo.
• First one to 5 votes is the winner !!
(whoever casts the winning vote awards the winner an Award Globe - see code below)

After each round, two new challengers start the process again. We may introduce a hall of fame for the winners, in the fullness of time...

If you cast the 5th vote, please wait a few minutes before starting a new thread, to avoid the appearance of impropriety, and to give someone else a chance who may be waiting.

The scoring is kind of like table tennis -- a running total, one point added per vote, for either the first or the second photo.

You add one to the first number, to vote for #1.
You add one to the second number to vote for #2.

Example scoring sequence...
1-0
2-0
3-0 photo # 1 gets first three votes
3-1 photo #2 finally gets a vote
3-2
3-3 all tied up at 3 votes each
3-4
3-5 Winner is photo #2


One vote per person.
You can vote against yourself, but not for yourself.

Post medium size photos only, any photo in your stream is fine,
it does not have to be in the Global Village 2 pool (but we'd love to see it there!!)

How to post a photo in our threads

Congratulations, you are the latest winner in the NEVER-ENDING Photo Contest at Global Village 2 (post 1 - give a globe to 5)

If no challengers after 1 hour someone else may jump in with a new subject (sound fair?)

I wish you had not deleted it, it seems unfair to your challenger, and a bit petty. The good-sportsmanlike thing to do now would be to award him the prize.

Admins reserve the right to broaden the declared subject to keep the game moving.

4-1 (I think)

I like the second better as far as the actual lighthouse goes, but the first one is a much prettier setting, so overall nicer.

That may have been me, speaking facetiously as usual, and now I have nothing with a power tool, damn. Is it too late for a lighthouse with an added sunset...?

I suppose it is too late... never mind... B-)

Panoramas.

This one is pretty much a challenge for Bob cause he loves panoramas but I'll accept any opponent.

Dang I missed my chance...

While neither is the kind of panorama composed of multiple images stitched together, both are exactly the right approach for their subject, a nice pano crop. Both equally good, too, hard to pick...
