I hope no one would be trying to guess finalist images and vote lowball. ;-) Just saying integrity is more important than a title.

Is this an attempt to get some info on how we're doing on the 1st challenge of the series? ;-)

Well, I'll let you know - we had somewhere between 0 and 6 entries in Holiday Card. For those who entered, the scores are ranging between 8.5 and 1.0. We are completely to not so confident in our ability to knock High Five's socks off in this competition.

But, don't tell anyone that I've given up our secrets. I wouldn't want to give High Five any unfair advantage. ;-)

Squirrels, at 40 paces!!


:) I can't do squirrels. Currently I have only one lens 18-55mm. The squirrel would have to be right next to me :)

ETA. Unless Cory uses his rifle and sends me the squirrel? :( No, that's not an option. Squirrels are too cute.


Tasty too... :)

..

Seriously though, a set of Yongnuo radio triggers like the 603's will allow you to set the camera up and just trigger it remotely when the delicious little fluffy tailed rat is in front of your lens.


Yongnuo 622c's now!

In all seriousness - if there's no challenge announced we can't very well start the championship round, so we will almost certainly have to delay some. Hopefulcrafty1 is also still without the ability to enter - so until that is fixed, we may need to delay as well.

All factors out of our control, but we do need to ensure the final is fair.


Please, do not delay the starting time for me. I have stated before that I am willing to pay for a month's membership to be able to compete in the TPL2 finals. I would not want to inconvenience everyone with a delay - especially with the holidays coming up.

It's a joke. Hence the winkie face at the end of the line.

I guess it make life more interesting.....,

I suspect nobody apart from Langdon knows if there will be a new challenge tonight so guess we all just have to sit and wait and see what happens.

However I assume that if there is not then whenever the next challenge does appear that will be the start of the finals assuming it is not some unusual challenge i.e not the mormal 7 day challenge.

That's what I'm trying to clarified....

Then again, maybe I'm just trying to confuse the opposition... ;)
