I have entered two photos into a contest sponsored by a cabin rental company in the Smokies. My church used a cabin there in October for a women's retreat. I took a couple of shots off of the deck at sunset. The prize package for the contest is a $500 gift certificate toward cabin stays (which would be awesome!) plus an Ipad.

To "vote" you need to go to the Cabins For You Facebook page and "like" my photo (photos...I actually have two entered.)

An added benefit to connecting with their Facebook page is that they very frequently run last minute EXCELLENT deals on cabins, only on Facebook. Sometimes as low as $25 a night with no additional fees. We were very pleased with their service and the large lodge we rented.

Anyway...the number of "likes" a photo receives will be a strong (but not the only) consideration in the winner they choose. I appreciate any votes and comments left on the photo there. They really are not my best photos, but I think are probably in the running there where most are just snapshots and I figured it's worth a try.

Gonna try and link it...hope it works:

Edited to add: Comments will also help the entry to stand out :) And don't forget that karmat (below) also now has entries there too.

I saw the photos, nice sunset light, but I can't find any "like" button (not so familiar with Facebook yet). Any ideas?

I think you have to be logged in. And you definitely have to have an account.

you'll need a facebook account, and you will probably have to "like" the cabin rental place first.

what i usually do when friends request this is "like" what I need to, vote, and then when it is over, if it isn't somewhere i want updates on, or whatever, i'll "unlike" them.

Yep...I think you do have to like the whole Cabins For You Facebook page first, so it's not a big deal if you're not into doing that. That is why I posted that, if you're fairly local to that area, they offer some great last minute deals. I hate getting extra emails and forwards and all that garbage, but they have not bothered me at all.

Still...I'm one who is very cautious about signing up for anything online, so I certainly understand not wanting to hassle with it. For those who are already connected up with Facebook it's easier.

Thanks for taking the time to consider it! It's much appreciated. I haven't been around in a long time due to a lot of personal scheduling issues, but I still love checking in once in a while for the photography and the forums. Good to see some familiar names :)

Thanks for the plug and the "Likes!" I really like the train shot you posted too :) Good luck!

One last "bump" going into the last week of the contest. No more bumps after tonight..promise!

Judy didn't bump, I did. :P

Today is the last day of voting. If you are a facebook user, you can "like" the Cabins for you (you can unlike or block after voting), then vote for the pictures you want.

Judy's linked to hers -- mine is the train picture at the bottom of the page (next to the little girl in the frog goggles -- also mine).

This is my train picture

No time for a look at all the photos posted there, but I liked the ones you linked here. Good luck with the contest!
