Apparently fixed lens rangefinders are ok - and they can't accept other rf lenses.

Unless my understanding of what a fixed lens rangefinder is is incorrect!

I really think we need some clarification on what is acceptable

Great contest. I didn't know about it until I got an email from RFF today. In the email, it states that I still have 2 weeks to submit but actually it was ended already . A little bit too late .

"Greetings from RangeFinderForum!
This email is to remind you that you still have two weeks to enter the Street Photography Contest to win a NEW Voigtlander 21/1.8 Leica M mount lens! You will find the rules here: http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...d.php?t=127318"

Is there a supposition in the rules that street photography can only happen in cities? Can it not happen in the countryside?

If you hover or select "Gallery" (inside the "New Gallery", not in the "old" "Gallery"...yes, we don't not have no bananas), there's an option in the drop-down menu, "Upload Photos".

First among the smorgasbord of boxes and buttons and drop-down menus, at the very top, is the "Select Category" drop-down menu, from which you can select the contest.

Got it ;-) Thanks! Still, there are no fields for city, camera, etc. Is this done at a later stage? Pardon my lack of knowledge but this is the very first time I have to deal with galleries within the forum…

I have followed this link from Stephen:

yes, that's old contest gallery which was discarded

upload to http://www.rangefinderforum.com/phot...y.php?cat=9317

Thanks,
Stephen

when I get there, I can see 'gallery' mentioned twice: once near the top, right side: 'View: gallery'. Hovering over this does nothing for me.

Then there is a 'Subscribe to gallery' near the bottom, left side. When i click there, nothing happens either.

The gallery shows 215 nice pics right now with many views.

Where, how can i submit a pic or two to the contest, that is my question.

Can anyone educate me how to upload and annotate, please? Thanks!

HI,

you posted in the old gallery - which is confusing - but the gallery and the contest was moved to http://www.rangefinderforum.com/rffgallery/index.php

so, please upload your pics in the new contest gallery

Ok, before I submit my entries just want to be absolutely sure about parameters of entries (!)

The two cameras I use are Minox 35-GT and Hexar AF - both of which seem to fall into that ***possibly*** acceptable category!

So Stephen, could you possibly tell me if those are okay (or not)?

(Also, true that the pics must have been taken in 2012, through this month - i.e. not in 2011)

Thanks!

sorry, no go.

both are fixed lens non-rangefinder cameras.
neither is capable of mounting rangefinder lenses via adapters.

the pics are for 2012 thru 1/31/13.

Hi. I overlooked that the city should be listed because there is no option in the upload menu. How should it be listed and is it possible to delete and reload?

How to connect "city, camera and lens" data to a photo for the competition ???????
uhligfd
Registered User
So, does anyone know how to add a 'city, camera and lens' to an uploaded picture? Please tell if you do.

Stephen, can you please tell us before the competition closes and our un-tagged, un-taggable pictures are disqualified.

Added later: after I posted this, I went back to my pictures in the competition gallery. And just clicked on one as I had done yesterday after the initial post:

Lone behold, not only did my picture get enlarged (same as yesterday) , but today there was also a whole list of categories I could fill in. Yet the lens that was used was not even listed ... But I mentioned it inside the "Notes" and the EXIF data which can be brought up also was including the lens only as missing ...

You can add data in the Notes field of your photo.

I am a bit confused. In the new gallery software, there are native fields that capture this information. Shouldn't we use those in lieu of duplicating the information into other fields?

Below the image is a field most contest members seem to be using for titling their image. Instead use that field for the Camera, Lens, City info.

I am not sure what's happened with the switch over of gallerys, everything was fine prior to this. It wont let me click the photo contest 2012 to upload 2 images again to the new gallery.. Do the old images automatically transfer over then? Im confused. And one other question, the 2 photos I submitted one was shot with a Leica M4-2, and the other shot with my Fuji X100. Do both photos qualify for the contest as I do currently have a rangefinder body.

This is a strange contest:

I can see just one of my contest pictures in the competition gallery, the other one was visible adjacent to it a day or two ago. Today there is no trace of my second picture.

If I click on my name (under the still visible picture), there is the pair, but in the competition folder it is no longer visible, I searched all 8 panels.

Where did it go? Who took it out of the competition?

It does not really matter , does it. Just curious.

Maybe I should try submitting another one, but how can I 'delete' the lost one first ???

Stephen,

if I'm not mistaken, the competition was supposed to be open for new entries until end of Jan. and then voting should start.
I just checked out the competition gallery and a lot of pictures do have votes, mostly only a single vote and surprisingly most of them only a rating of "1".

I assume someone with a very strange sense of competitiveness gave a generous freebee round of low ratings to most members.
As we had a separate thread about low ratings, this seems to be something strange...

I would very much prefer to have the rating system like it has been in the old gallery, i.e. not anonymous. I'm not sure if this is also possible for the new gallery. Maybe this wouldn't work competition but I have also no idea how to cap ratings for manipulative purpose.

Obviously the generous prize is so tempting, that some folks forget about sportsmanship, sad thing.
