****May Photo Contest Preliminaries--Thread 1**** [View all]

May Photo Contest Preliminaries -- Thread 1

I have stepped up to pinch hit for Atman, who was the original host for this month's contest, but needed to bow out due to other responsibilities. Atman selected the theme "Nautical But Nice".
Photographers were asked to submit anything with a nautical theme; an old anchor, a knotted rope, or maybe some old buoys or a ship's lantern. Even a schooner or a ship, or the Gorton's of Gloucester fisherman.

Please vote for your favorite in each of THREE threads.

The other threads are here:

Thread 2: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027858211
Thread 3: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027858212

Preliminaries will run for three (3) days.

The TOP 2 in each thread plus the NEXT HIGHEST 2 across all three threads will advance to the finals. Finals will
also run for 3 days.

The photographers always value comments. Please keep the threads kicked and recommended so that everyone will have a chance
to see the photos in this month's contest and VOTE!
