Thank you for the nod on my render and congratulations to the other winners. Thank you Skipper25 and Music for the prizes. Jeeperz, I thank you for the critique. I for one appriciate it when someone is brave and honest in their assessments of my work and I will be more sensitive to the spirit of the challenge because of it. Being on the otherside of the fence as a host I appriciate your comment. It so helps the host when they don’t have to be the heavy about complying with the rules.


thanks Dollygirl, I really hesitated to say anything because people sometimes get offended when you say something. But seriously everyone, stepping up to the challenge is all part of any render you enter into a contest. We may not be all experts and can knock out work like LG and some of the others do, but the main thing I like about this contest is that anyone can win, one of the most important tips I can give you is to follow the theme, get some good lighting and shadows in your render and you may be the next winner. The prettiest picture isn’t always the winner, the first year this contest was around I won one month, not because my render was the best, it clearly wasn’t, but because i followed the theme more than the other people did. And the host gave us all critique on what was good and wrong with out renders. Gotta love Salashin for that. she never held the punches and was very honest. we need more of that around here, it really helped me to grow as an artist.

Let’s try this again. I have posted the winners here two times already, let’s try for three. First time, for some reason, it did not take. Second time, I was interrupted by massive thunderstorms in my area, some of the worst I have ever seen. I lost my bedroom TV, and my son’s pooter, to power outage. It happened before I could get everything in the house unplugged. For real…that fast. The power went out for about two hours, when it came back on, these were no longer working. Got to go buy a new TV and pooter today. It will cost $160.00 to fix the TV, I can buy a new one for $250.00. Son’s pooter has XP, old anyway. New one…$300.00. So…lets try this again.


My judges were on the ball with their pics. So with theirs and mine, we came to this conclusion:


The two honorable mentions are:
hm1 - My Sunny Vacation - Takeo.Kensei
hm2 - Car Wash - Lord Ganthor


The third place winner is: A Star Is Born - Dollygirl
The second place winner is: Beach Ball - Oom Fooyat


And the first place winner is…..Hot Lead At Sunrise - Lord Ganthor


So, there you have it. Congratulations to all the winners, and I hope to see all of you here again next year for the annual “Summer Fun and Pinups.”


grin

Congratulations to all the winners!


(And I must remember for next year - less “summer fun”, more “pinup”...)

Yes Jeeperz . As Dollygirl knows we encourage feedback in the New Users COntest, and most everybody has been really happy to receive it and have taken it on board, and worked to improve.

Congrats to the winners!

By the way, mine does have a title, if the gallery is remaining.  It’s called Sliding2 - isn’t on the image in the gallery.  Not that it really matters I guess

There is no problem with critics. At least with me. It’s a good way to progress. I enter contest to get something to render and sometime test things and have some fun so there is no problem if the judges want to tell me what they didn’t like even if they are very harsh :)

Congrats to all the winners and let’s go to the next month challenge :) this one is my taste

~  I lost my bedroom TV, and my son’s pooter, to power outage. It happened before I could get everything in the house unplugged. For real…that fast.

That is the reason to get UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) units for sensitive electronics.

And congrats to the winners.


Remember the batteries in consumer level units only last 2 - 2.5 years and then the UPS itself becomes a threat to your electronics.  One should budget $35-50 US every 2 years / UPS system or just purchase a professional unit to start with.  If one is buying a house, one should look into seeing if getting a power conditioner unit installed by the seller is an option for sale.  This can cushion the cost over the life of the mortgage and protect all of your electronic assets in the house.


Kendall


The batteries in the APC units last longer.  I replace one about every 5 years.  Usually, either the second or third time, I’ll do an upgrade, or as they call it a Trade-UPS!  Tech is better by then and units are less expensive all the time.  Last time I upgraded I went from a 500 to a Smart-UPS 750.  Never had a problem with surges since I started using them.  And they’ve saved my butt a few times during power outages or brief brownouts.

Wait a second…I won first…for a pin-up of a guy? Good grief…this is an…unexpected turn of events. I didn’t think it was that good of a render myself. I had high hopes on another one (and I won’t say which one) but it just goes to show you that you should never underestimate the judges’ perceptions. My thanks to everyone and to everybody who entered with their considerable talents that really gave me a run for it.

Well you know which one I would have voted for, had I been a judge.

BTW did you visit back to the thread I started in the Bryce forum and see what David had added to it.
