I've posted every eligible contest entry that we have received so far ... 198 photos. And I must say, the range of subjects you photographed within our theme of "At the beach" is quite something. And the quality of the photos confirms the reason why we started this amateur photography site: So many of you have high-quality cameras, enthusiasm for photography, and lots of creative ideas.

You're all snap-happy!

Here are more details about the close of the August contest, voting, and the start of the September contest:

I did not post photos of flowers or meadows or marinas or canals or skylines that were unrelated to the contest theme, "At the beach". I also did not post photos from anyone who submitted more than one photo, which the rules stipulate. If those photographers remove the contest tags from their extra photos, then I will post the one photo they leave in the contest. Otherwise, they are out.

There still are two days left to submit a photo: The deadline is midnight Sunday. Read more about the theme here, and then read the contest rules carefully here and upload a photo. We are using the Flickr uploader, so you will need a Flickr account. (It's free.)

I will repeat what I have said several times before: If you are opening a new Flickr account in order to enter this contest, you must upload 5 photos before Flickr will add your account to its Search. It can take Flickr 2 to 3 days to find new accounts; that's why we aren't going to open voting until Friday, Sept. 5. If somebody opens a new account and uploads a contest photo on Sunday, it might not show up in our contest until Wednesday.

If you use our Uploader to add photos to your Flickr account, be aware that it automatically adds the 3 contest tags to every photo. So you will then have to remove the tags from all but 1 photo. If you have more than 1 photo in the contest, none will count.

We're taking a break from the site this weekend, so peruse the contest entries so far and start to pick your favorites. You can look at them one by one starting here and clicking on "Next Entry" at the bottom of each photo, or view them all on one very long page.

If you don't see your photo or have any other questions, email us at

And please vote for the September contest theme ... it's your choice.

Have a great weekend, wherever you go, and don't forget to bring your camera.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
