The set of photos is titled 'Venetian Gondolas & Scenes'.

I'd really appreciate it if you could give me a vote by visiting the link below, and clicking 'Like' under my set of images.  You must to be logged in to Facebook to do this.

Is there a way for people like me that aren't on Facebook to vote?

Thanks for your interest.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is.


Cheers, Phil

Hmmm. This topic is painfully naff. I thought it was supposed to be photography competition rather than an FB 'Like' contest? There's no way I would vote for your images when compared to the work of many others there.

Anyway, this is MSG. The 'votes' that we're interested in are those from buying customers. That's all that counts when you are doing it to put bread on the table. Fawning platitudes and compliments won't pay the bills. I shoot what I think might sell __ not what might get me FB 'Likes'. There's a very big difference.

This is off topic, and I'm sure many people here also shoot for beauty and their own joy, not only what will sell.
But I also dislike the idea that to win a competition it's all about how wide your 'social network' is. Seems to be very common these days, so we are just dinosaurs in this matter.

Thank you very much for your keen support and encouraging words!   :o  I'm glad you  liked my set of images.  ::)

I'm a microstock photographer as well, with around 2000 images on 18 sites. 

However, occasionally, I also dabble in photography competition sites and other 'social' online photography sites.  For me, it's not all about selling my images....I also enjoy the fun side of taking photographs and uploading them to these other aforementioned sites. 

Whether you like it or not, social media has taken over the world, and I'm sure it's here to stay, and will become more and more important in our lives.  Many sites, including photography competition sites, are designed around using social media for publicity, advertising, and even voting.  It's the way it is.  Enjoy! ;)

Yes, we have become Digital Share Croppers... we provide the content and the hard work, and they get the profit.... we are all digital serfs

[] social media has taken over the world, [] and will become more and more important in our lives.
And will be more and more important in the files of NSA, CIA, FBI and other similar agencies
Good luck to the world and to the democracy!

I liked your post-processing Phil - happy to help out. Brought back fond memories of Venice - wonderful place. I want to go back. You've inspired me to post a link of my own - on a separate topic - for a contest where social media is just the first stage.

Good luck!

Thank you very much, wordplanet!  I appreciated your support!

Let me know when you post your link, and I'll pop in for a look!  :)

Once again, thank you!

You are desperate aren't you? How many times are you going to try bumping this 'topic' up in your pathetic plea for votes?

If you want to win a photography competition why don't you just submit some outstanding images worthy of doing so? Is this actually a 'photography competition' or just a social networking exercise?

Oh, gostwyck, my posts appear to be really upsetting you! If you don't like my posts, why don't you just ignore them?  You'll get high blood pressure if you let my posts get you all upset.

In recent years, I've seen similar posts in forums on Microstock photography sites, and I've been only too happy to help photographers by way of a vote.   I've never thought negatively about them asking for votes.....I've always viewed it as helping another member of the photography family.  :)

If you read the rules of this competition, one facet of the competition is the 'People's Choice' category....which depends entirely on obtaining 'likes' from Facebook members.  So, yes, part of the competition does rely on social networking. 

However, this is also a competition that will be decided by a panel of judges. 

Don't let my posts get to you....I certainly wouldn't want to be responsible for getting you all worked up about it!  :)

Phillip Minnis I like your venetian gondolas and scenes very much, they are beautiful.

The post-production you have done on your images is really awesome.
You have my honest vote/like! ;)

While I couldn't vote because I'm not on Facebook, I agree that the post-processing is fantastic!

Have you thought about posting them in 'Photosig'? That site has a lot of professionals that will critique your photos and you gets points as well...

Thank you for your suggestion, however, no, I haven't throught of doing that, as I don't want a critique done on my photos.  :)

I'm happy with the way I have processed them, and if I wasn't, I wouldn't have entered them into the competition.  :)

Thank you very much, Boris, for taking the time to vote for my set of images!

Thank you, also, for your positive comments. 

I don't expect everyone to like the way I processed the images, however, I am, so, really, that is all that matters.  ;)
