Well done Fred, the idea of starting a monthly comp has been very successful. I'm sure that all the guys and gals were happy to have the chance of showing their stuff and the quality of pics was excellent!! I would like,if I may,to congratulate Vivienne on her achievement; good stuff Viv

and Sandra on that delicious Paph.
Bon Chance to all who took part for the next comp. Bill

May I suggest a "Hall of Fame"? Maybe a single thread (it could even be this thread modified) where we post, each month, the winning pics with the owners' names and the award won are posted? It would be like a little Orchid Geeks Award Gallery. I would enjoy being able to go backand look at past awards, maybe others would too.

Cheers

I'm not worthy..........
I've been having a great time on this forum, feeling connected to others who are soooooooooo experienced and those still learning and sharing their knowledge with me. I've had a rough couple of months and what a great outlet this has been for me!!!!

Congratulations Bill, Mike and Vivienne

P.S. I thought the secret judge was Fred!!!

Good guess Sandra

but nope not me

I also think you are worthy of winning.

It was all up to the secret judge who we all know was Anton.

All I done was gave out the Awards

Congrats to all! Beautiful orchids.

Fred, is it possible to have the winners images posted as thumbnails that you can click on to enlarge? Also the best in species is not showing up at all.

Thanks,
NancyG

Congratulations and jubilations to all who won photo awards for May;
CHEFATPLAY, DDS2007, ANTON, ELLEN,and VIVIENNE.

To KEVIN who won two ; Most popular and most helpful member.

But I cannot find who won the Wackiest Avatar. Whoever you are, well done because there were some really wacky avatars this month. I have just been informed by Fred that ANTON was the wacky winner "hands down". I have always thought they don't come any wackier than our mate.

Will Fred illuminate the forum with the identity of the secret judge for May? We wait with baited breath!!!

Bill

Congrats to all of you. I can see the competition is getting tougher and tougher. So many nice pics this month, including those of the "non-winners." Everyone is to be congratulated. Job well done.

I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who voted for me for popular member and most helpful. I appreciate the kindness and a happy that the things I've written are useful and helpful. I have so much fun with the hobby and I like to be able to share that fun with others. One of the reasons I like this particular forum so much is because many of you seem to have the same "gee this is so fun" attitude that I have, which I also think makes this forum unique.

Many Thanks and Happy Growing!

-Kevin

Okay, first, I had to pick my jaw up from the floor. I WON something....wow.

Congratulations to DDS2007, Anton, Ellen and Vivienne. I am honored to be part of such a prestigeous group.

Now I would like to thank all the little people, for if it weren't for them, blah, blah, blah...

No really, I am stunned and honored. I think I said that already. Wow...

To Tippy and Angee, cheers

Kevin, I'm so sorry I didn't mention you in my last post, congratulations to you. (I voted for you.) Your consistant effort to educate us and your tireless devotion is awe inspiring at the least. Thank you for the education. I read every one of your threads with great interest.

i guess i am lucky because i get to see the pics the secret judge has judged to be the winners.

at the end of each month i am flat out awarding the prizes to the winning members.

I must say i get a good kick out of giveing the awards.

I see the rewards each day with the quality of the comp pics and with how pleased the winners are.

Quote] a cool geek Admin ( thats an honour )

I just love what i do for the forum and the awesome members we have

to all the orchidgeeks

Unacustomed that I am to public speaking..........

Congrats to May's winners, it seems like my photo 101, one on one lessons(you people know who I mean) makes it all worth it when you try the things I have recommended and end up achieving an award. It means I have done my job.

Congrats to all the winners, looks like photo101 is working.

Anyone needing help, tips or critiques on their images, PM me, or contact Fred for my address, and I'll do them via Email, but as those who already use "the service" know, expect long replys as I give in depth analyses and help.

Can't wait to see the entries in July's comp.

Congratulations everyone! Anton, you're right, the pictures are gorgeous. Snowball, I'm glad you won recognition for those beautiful orchids in the wild. We don't get to see that often. Vivienne, Sandra, Bill, Hummer and Ellen, (gee, I like that name, Ellen, has a good ring to it ), well done.

I will be working hard this month to enter a winner !

Anton, you should always win something, between your monk and your advice, who could not learn something from you! Here's my award for you for the most popular monk award.

Congratulations to the other winners, and thank you everyone (especially the secret judge ). I would also like to thank the brassia flower that did not make it long enough to see it's own achievement and to my wife for breaking it off by mistake in the first place. It will be missed... until the next flowering spike.

Talking I'm really excited

Thanks for my award in the beginner Category for my NOID Phal. I was so excited that I emailed almost everyone I know and shared the news. Most of my family and friends think I've gone a little overboard with the orchids, so it's really cool to say "Look, I won an award!". I really enjoyed looking at all of the pictures and congrats to Cynthia on her member award. BTW is it possible to ask the judge/s for a critique on another pic I entered, but it wasn't selected. I thought my Paph. Pinocchio pic would have won and I'd like to know how to improve on it as it is getting ready to bloom again and provide me with more photo ops. Thanks for the recognition, Lisa

Lisa I can not ask the Secret Jugde to stepup to answer this one.

I am sure if the Secret Judge wants to share his/her opinion then he/she will do so via a PM to you.

Well done to all contestants in the August comp. and congratulations to the winners. The quality of the entries is growing month after month and if July and August are any guide September comp. will be a cracker.

I couldn't agree more BillC. It's rather intimidating!! I can't wait to see all the September entries... it's going to be very exciting.

Congrats to all the winners! WELL DONE!
