What a fantastic select of images we had for the very first MONTHLY Photo Contest!!!! In the past I used to pick the top 5 and than you got to VOTE for the winner. I thought it would be more fun to extend this to a monthly photo contest and allow you to select your 5 favorite images.
This is how the voting is going to work. I will select images that I are all over the map, some images I like others I think others will find really interesting. This month we have 23 images to choose from and your job is to select your 5 favorites by VOTING below. You have one week to make your selections before we close of VOTING on Jan 24th at 3pm EST. At that point the top 5 vote getters will be put back up for another VOTE to select the PHOTO OF THE MONTH.
You can cycle through the images by clicking on the any of them and arrowing left or right to rotate. The file names are all clearly listed so be sure you are voting for the right image.
Good Luck and don’t forget to LIKE this page and leave a comment below for your chance to win a BLACKRAPID Strap.
We are back!!!!!!!! For more than a year I have been holding the weekend THEME and it is time for a change. The themes have been going very well but from time to time you have to make some changes to keep things FRESH. Before I explain the new simple rules for the Monthly Photo Contest, please be sure to VOTE for last weeks TOP 5 to help one of the photographers WIN a BlackRapid Strap.
After a few weeks of entries here is your TOP 5. Another solid showing for the top 5 and I am thinking this will be a very close vote to see who wins the BlackRapid strap this week. Be sure to select your favorite as well as leave a comment below to try and win a stap for yourself.
The NEW THEME which again is being extended this time until January 3rd is “Red, Green or Blue”. This means you can submit images until January 2nd to VOTE and January 3rd to post your images in the forum to be considered for the Top 5. The reason I am extended it is to give myself a slight break here at the end of the year. Come next year I may change the time frame and some of the rules up but for now this will be the last weekend theme for the year.
A quick note in regards to the gun photo that is in the top 5. We are all deeply disturbed and saddened by a cowardly act committed by a very disturbed person. I am not a fan of guns and never have been other than for shooting at non living things.

After the latest two week theme it is time now to VOTE for your favorite images from the theme “Thankful”. Below you will find five images for you to VOTE on. The one with the most VOTES will WIN a BlackRapid Strap. Someone who leaves a comment in the facebook comment box on why they voted for the image they did will also be selected to win a strap as well.
Going forward for the next few months I think we will stretch the theme across a two week window. This way it gives you guys more time to participate and get out there and create some amazing images. That means you now have roughly 13 days to go out and photograph as well as VOTE for your favorite image from the top 5.
The NEW 2 WEEK Theme is “Tools”. Could it be a person, object, thing or something that never crossed my mind. Is it a microphone because you record music? Is it your car keys, baseball bat, pen, pencil or even a paintbrush. What type of image would capture the theme “Tools” for you?
Be sure to post your images starting Friday Nov 30th until Dec 13th in the FroKnowsPhoto Forum. Any picture you take from the 30th-13th can be entered into the running to be selected for the Top 5 and critique. Good luck and keep on shooting.

Smiles brought out a really steller top 5 including the same photographer getting two photos in it. I think that may be the second time since doing the Top 5 that this has happened.
I have to say fantastic job last week by everyone who voted as there were almost 1300 votes and 1000 Likes. We also had a very close vote to boot.
This week the NEW THEME is “Golden Hour”. That is the first our of sun and the last hour of sun. This light is so amazing and tends to be golden thus the name. What are you going to capture during this time, portraits, landscapes, animals or inanimate objects?
