Very nice job Jon..... I think its awesome, and I am honored to have a couple selected.
Last year I dont think there were any helis, so I am honored to help represent the genus this year.
Not all the ones I thought should have won did, but that is ok too... If they had, it would have been Av's calendar
Jon, thank you for the hard work and putting up with the masses. Andy, thanks for making this possible... Membership, thanks for some sweet photographs.
Kudos to all involved.
My vote would've been completely different, HAD we seen all of the entries.
Some of those pics are fantastic. I'm a little upset we didn't even get to see them..
wireman, mcmcnair, kulamauiman, and nepfan.. you now have my unofficial votes. sorry guys..
I personally think the selections were well done. The photos that were chosen all have a nice composition or style, sharpness, backgrounds, etc, and there were still plenty to choose from. Just my opinion anyway.
You have complained about every vote ever taken, time to get over it.... its getting old.
You're right, I misspoke and did mean "had I", since I only ever speak on behalf of myself.
I complain because it's necessary. If it didn't, we'd still be dealing with swayed voting systems around here. For starters..
The style of sit back and do nothing may work for you, but it's not me.
So I'll get over it when I'm good and ready. Or until the problems are resolved.. whichever comes first.
If Andrew wants my calender money, I feel I have the right to express some opinions first. No?
I suggest that for next year we have an outside photographer and/or artist select the entries.
