Hey guys
Trying to scrounge up votes because I made it to the top-10 of the EarthFare tomato photo contest. My experiences at DPC definitely helped hone my skills at stuff like this and I'm hoping to get your vote.

I never would ask for a vote if I didn't think the image was worth it - so judge for yourself of course.

They require an email address but give you a free coupon and you get the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping feed a 5-person family ;)) We could win a 100, 250 or 500$ gift card =)

Thanks so much.
Tate

Yes, that is Soren. He's such a good kid. Filled with joy.

Thanks for the votes, everyone. I think my wife is getting her hopes up for a gift card ;)
Feel free to pass along to others who might appreciate it.

THanks everyone. I knew I could count on DPC.
The unfortunate thing about contests like this is that they are more a popularity contest rather than a contest like DPC where the photos are judged regardless of the origin.

But since I am proud of this photo AND I want to win, I am not ashamed to pander relentlessly ;)
I will refrain from posting again as "FREE TOMATOES COUPON" but here's the link just in case:

Vote for the baby! =)
Thanks.

Tate

I voted for ya, Tate, and I'm normally a big anti-baby advocate! An imaginative image as usual, from you.
07/26/2012 11:48:17 AM · #16
I'm with you - I'm actually not big on baby photos. Well, unless they are my babies - but I do try to generally stay away from stereotypical images unless requested by a customer during a photo shoot.
So many people just seem to love Anne Geddes' stuff but those tend to make me ill, really. LOL

Thanks for the vote and compliment. I had several ideas for this shoot and they all involved kids interacting in some way with tomato/es I guess I've never been too fond of dressing up fruits or babies so I went with an alternative ;)

Hmm, one hesitates to mention this, but did you know that it's one's email address that is doing the voting? So, if one has more than one email address ...

I won't put my e-mail address in for a website to spam me with just to vote for someones photo. It won't even let me see it without my e-mail address.
07/26/2012 08:37:49 PM · #19
Voted for your wonderful image.

I have a "real" addy... and a "spam" addy... just for this purpose. That's what gmail is for, right??
:D

Voted. Great photo - Good Luck.
07/27/2012 08:14:02 AM · #22
I know what you mean Matt -
but like Lydia mentioned, since unwanted email is sort of the norm, I have a similar e-mail setup (2 addresses)- although I usually just use my main address and then set a filter for things I don't want in gmail.
Secondly, if Earth Fare is a store that is near you, the stuff they send is actually pretty decent. Good coupons usually.
No worries though- I cetainly don't expect anyone to jump through hoops just to vote on my image =))

BTW Voting is still open LOL!

I was just about to ask if voting was still open.
Then I read your thread.
Oh, what the heck, I'll ask anyhow.
