I have officially broken my long standing streak of NOT entering a photo on the last day (often hours/minute) of the deadline. Today, I posted my entry in to water! Can't believe I have an 8 day cushion!!

Have a photographed an open / shut entry.... nope. But you know, baby steps! I am feeling SUPER accomplished. Just wanted to go on record, as it will likely be short lived.

ETA: I have also voted on all available entries! Now, off to do taxes. No, I was not procrastinating.

Ha! Good luck with that, Erin!

I'm a "last minute Lucy" no matter how much time we have.

*sigh*

I thought the same thing as you when we went from one week to enter to two weeks to enter.

*sigh again*

Wait...

WHY are you doing taxes so EARLY??

:D

Nicely done! I am not sure I have ever submitted 8 days early. I am typically uploading my entry the evening of closing. Several times within 8 minutes of closing.

I am with you I have never submitted that early there were times where it was with minutes to spare back in the DPL days when someone would have advice on how to fix something in a photo

I think I've had one as close as two minutes to closing, but I've also had situations where I have entries submitted to all or all-but-one of the challenges available.

I don't go shoot pictures as often as previously, but when I do I try to keep all of the challenges in mind, and often can cover two or three topics in one session/day ...

I will be doing that next week - just fearful people may vote me down for not liking my subject or think Iím repetitive. Have to effort to really switch it up.

Yeah -- I have an idea for open/shut, but probably won't do it until I have help tonight. Last minute, here I come!!!

BUT -- I do have an idea for the move challenge!!!! So Maybe I'll at least take a screen shot today. :)

Looking to see if I shot anything open or shut in the last 2 weeks!

Seriously you have NO idea how funny that is to me! I am feeling SUPER accomplished right now - itíll be short lived, I have NO doubt! Kind of bummed out on this image, not happy with it, just not inspired on this topic. Nonetheless, itís in! Yippee!!

I have NO doubt that you have shot something that you could make work. No doubt at all!

Why are we doing this??? I think mine was in with 15 min to go ...

Always last minute and the worst is, once I get going I have all these great ideas what I could have done, but now can't do anymore because I would have had to organize a prop, or shoot at a particular location or time, and can't do that anymore. How absolutely ridiculous is that????

Oh my gosh that happens to me ALL the time!! That is kind of is what lead me to wanting to photograph it earlier; although my idea for shut/open couldnít be pulled off with even two days to pull it together. Oh well. LOL

I am IN for Black and White . . . over 2 days to spare. Hoping that my creative juices kick in and I find something else to enter instead, as my entry is not very exciting.

I am hoping to find something else tomorrow - as I am not happy at all, but it is an okay placeholder.

I hate to admit it, but yes, my B&W is also in AND I have done my blue/yellow already, just confirming some editing query with the powers that are.
