Tee hee. . .that's funny!!

I think I'll have to take a break from doing another tournament just right away after this one tho. I love shooting what inspires me, and I have to admit to a few stressful moments not having anything that I really thought worthy of submitting, but having to anyway.

But I'm glad I saw it all the way through.

Just 5 more days to go :)

This has been a great competition, and for a good cause. To all the participants: You're all winners in my book :-)

...oh, and Go Rikki ;-)

hehehehe... thanks for the vote of confidence gene ;) too bad there weren't any side bets on the prediction leader board eh? my predictions got all messed up when No. 1 kiwiness got ousted early including Manny. Then came Nasti :(

Oh what a great game this is and what a great site we are ;) Woohoo!

That's what caused my downfall in the predictions too.. yet I still managed a 5th place showing on the prediction leaderboard :)

Err.. until the latest update, where I dropped to 8th :)

Now. . .how in the world were you a 4th seed??? How in the world was I a 2nd seed????
05/12/2006 12:12:49 PM · #338
Score ??? ummmmmm. .. .it's okay. I love my photo and think it's one of my best, so naturally, I don't think it's scoring as good as it should be scoring. . .but it is doing okay. But like I say. . .I'm staying grounded because I'm a realist too :)

I think Terry bracketed us into four groups and we were seeded according to that group ;) Yeah, I think my image is great as well (as with most people). However, I did learn to just go with the flow as what inspires me might not inspire others ;) 4 more days and we're done ;) Kinda sad but it's a relief in some way. Then again I'm in the WPL so I still need to keep the photos coming and the shutter clicking for a while ;)

Cheers,

Rikki

I think I will be more relieved than sad :) It's just that my philosophy about photography is that for it to touch people and be good, it has to have something of the photographer's passion and expression in it. If I have to enter a challenge that does nothing for me. . .then, it's going to be flat and boring (for me anyway). I did find that in a couple of my MS entries, and It was very hard for me to enter photos I wasnt all that happy with. . .on subjects that didn't inspire me in the least. Sooooooo, I'm going back to my hard and fast motto: shoot what you love and love what you shoot :) No more forced entries for me :)

I'm not sure how I'm 2nd on the prediction leaderboard when I only got one right in my Final Four prediction. Everyone else must have really sucked. :P
05/12/2006 04:23:30 PM · #344
why second? Cause you have me in there going to the finals dude ;) look at Bear's predictions and he's in third place ;)
05/16/2006 10:13:02 AM · #345
Well, we are in the final hours of this. Go SandyP, Go Rikki! I can hardly wait for the outcome!
05/16/2006 09:20:55 PM · #346
almost done... at last ;) what a great effort everyone ;) thanks Terry for letting us share in the fun and helping out a great cause as well ;)

cheers,

rikki

Awwww. . .Thank you Tinky! We are indeed almost at the finish line :)

And I'm happy too to have played such a fun game for such a good cause. My brother-in-law's sister was this gorgeous, cheerleader, model type and was diagnosed with MS in her late 20's. She married a man with MS and they have a son. But for the past many years, they've both been confined entirely to a wheelchair. It's a devastating disease, and I'm glad to have any small part in raising funds and awareness for MS!

Congrats to Rikki for tking the title, and well done to Sandy for a very high score to completely justify your second place.

And a big thanks to Terry for setting the whole thing up in the first place.
