How much is an entry worth? I entered a photo in JPG's "Beginnings" for the $2 fee, I entered a photo in JPG's "May You Live In Interesting Times" for the $1 fee, and I entered a photo in JPG's "Where in the World" for the $5 fee, but I didn't bother entering this pic in JPG's "Best of" for the $10 fee because I just can't see wasting $10s on one of my pics for "Best of". This pic isn't my best ever, or my best of the year, or my best of that was however the best one that I took through the salt spray on the rear window of the car as the wind howled outside.

    I don't know anything about the fees...but I don know what I like. It's a gorgeous image. Moody, like looking out of half-closed eyelids. Fantastic.

    I love the shot, especially through the salt spray. I don't enter those themes that cost because my images are strictly for fun.

    GReat shot, John - and I agree on the sentiment. However, I do enjoy seeing the pics that ARE entered.

    Fees, Fees, Fees, and more fees. JPG is a great site but their fees are a joke at times. $19.00 for 25 Spotlights I pay less for a month’s subscription on WoW. Great image, John.

    The sea spray made a great filter to give just the right blur to this fabulous capture. The lighting and aqueous tones are superb. So is the minimal seascape. The figures give it perspective and life. It COULD win, but I think $10 to enter anything is ridiculous. LOL!

    ha, love this, John. maybe they will have a contest for "he best one that I took through the salt spray on the rear window of the car as the wind howled outside." I don't think I'll enter anything again. I really find the voting part of it cumbersome. It would be much easier if you could page thru the thumbnails and pick and vote for what you like, instead of having to click thru every single shot.

    I love this image; it's so majestic with a touch of surreal.

    Great, and so true! Leslie you have an excellent point, I totally agree. However, $10 is ridiculous!

    I live by the ocean and never get tired of seeing it through a different lens.......I think this is actually very lovely

    They're gettin' to you, John. You know, when I returned 14 months ago I decided I wouldn't even enter the themes. As for the entry fees, if that will help JPG meet the payroll, then I am all for it, but I'm with you on this one. Headin' to Maine myself, tomorrow.
