Well, I've been in the June FS for over 2 weeks (#76). Am still hoping for a 6.4 from a shot that has been seen before here but (hopefully) have a different slant on it - I'll certainly make a print of it.

$10 goes to the charity of my choice for every comment I receive naming me (if you name me on more than 3 images it won't count btw)

I entered June 1st... I will be in first 30 :) I will beat my own record or second best... and remember, winner gets a DPC hat from me ;)

I'm in....but expect the unexpected from me......snicker, snicker!!
06/30/2008 07:00:15 PM · #4
I've been waiting 2 weeks as well, and it's killing me..lol

I'm hoping for a 6.4+ as well, which would be a personal best.

Wish me luck!

Best of luck to all (except Andi) ;o) I entered yesterday and all I am hoping for is to beat Andi, this months free study sees us in yet another side bet...I'll let Andi tell you what happens if he loses ;o)

Aaaaaaaaaaargh! I forgot it was the 30th! Now I've gotta go chimp through my shots from the month and find something to enter when I get home from work tonight. Never a good thing ...

Hey, wheres the thanks for the reminder?

And, on second glance (and I should have done some more editing) this could be my second 7 :)

:>P thank you thank you thank you. I *think* I've got a few to choose from, and hopefully something that will sneak above a 6. Nothing up in your neck of the woods, tho. Good luck! And thanks again.

Hoping for 6.4546 ... just enough to change my home row pictures. :-)


06/30/2008 08:12:08 PM · #13
I just want to break this (5.9291) for my highest free study!
06/30/2008 08:13:20 PM · #14
I just wish I had something to enter... :(
06/30/2008 08:19:15 PM · #15
I am seriously hoping for a ribbon, hahahaha, I will be happy not to end up last... ok no I won't, I'm greedy and I want at least a 6.... buuuuut I know how some of the voters are.... I'm just hoping I don't receive some of the comments I am expecting because those comments will be very annoying and also incorrect, but I will probably get them anyway.
06/30/2008 08:54:38 PM · #16
I love FS's! I score the highest on my entries... :)

I am just hoping for a new PB... but I will take a 6.0 or greater.
06/30/2008 08:57:39 PM · #17
Hoping for a 6.5+, dreaming of a 6.+8+, expecting to barely stay above 6....
06/30/2008 09:02:19 PM · #18
I'm hoping to get a 6 or higher but if not a high 5 would be good also.

Same here. I need a 6.8457. That setup studio type shot ('Stepping') at the tail end REALLY needs to go. It's so not my normal style. I think I have a fair chance of replacing it this month.
06/30/2008 09:34:16 PM · #20
Not in. I had been hoping to go into Tokyo on Sunday, but it rained all day so what I had planned wouldn't have eventuated. Nothing else during the month was worth entering a FS for... :-(

I entered mine a few days ago even though it’s a picture that was taken during the first week of June.

I did lots of Photoshop (anyway… to my standard "LOL") to it and did resubmit at least 3 or 4 times in the last 2 days. I truly believe that this is one of my best FS so far this year and I expect at least a 6.5 or higher.

Now that I said that, it will probably finish around 6.1 or 6.2 which will be very fine also :)

Well how am I going to overtake you in the FSM with that sort of carry on?

Yeah. Right! ppfffhhh. Probably 7.2 will be more like it. :-D

I believe I can firmly say that my "suicide" shot will be getting bumped off my home page in a week. Not exactly a pleasing shot to see every time you visit the page.
06/30/2008 10:55:01 PM · #25
I'm in! Found a shot I forgot about but really liked back when I shot it. Some quick editing and I'm pretty happy with my entry. I'm thinking this has a good chance to hit a 6.3 or better, which probably dooms it to a 5.8 (or worse!). It's all good though.

Thanks again Andi for the reminder. After entering this image I'm quite glad I didn't forget.
