Sorry, folks, but we can't post the Voting Machine yet because as happens every month, some of the finalists have incorrect settings on their Flickr accounts that are preventing us from using Flickr's API to pull their photos into the VM.

I've sent them emails via their Flickr accounts; as soon as they fix things we should be good to go.

Our judge for our August "Architecture" competition, Bruno Debas, has finished choosing the 50 photos from among all the submissions. His comments:

"I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the pictures. The range in quality varied greatly, however.

The best pictures had everything I feel is needed in a good photograph: Good composition, nice use of color, the right camera angle, the right time to shoot for the light.

For those who need suggestions, I would say to apply this set of requirements before shooting:

1. Pay attention to composition and how the viewer will read the photograph.

2. Ask yourself if this is the right camera angle for the building; walk around to look at other angles and perspectives.

3. Is the light just right? Is it the right time to shoot?

Finally each photographer should ask himself/herself: What is my point of view? What is it that I see that others do not? How to I transfer that point of view into the image?

Again, congratulations on a fine set of submissions."

Here's a full-screen gallery of Bruno's Final 50 choices.

We'll post the Voting Machine later today.

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?...
