Below are the final picks for the 2011 Geckos Unlimited Calendar. If you do not see your photo here, it's probably because it was either not in perfect focus or it didn't meet the resolution requirements, or it was not really a calendar material.

Once again, just a reminder that for next year's contest, please be sure to shoot photos with the maximum resolution that the camera will allow. Remember, you can always reduce the photos, you can't enlarge them and still have a print quality image.

Job at hand - We have to select 13 photos that will make the calendar.

how to vote?
Take a pencil and write down 13 of your favorite photos, then vote for them! Easy!

RULES:
1. Vote for your favorites. Top 13 pics make the calendar. Top favorite makes the cover

2. Feel free to invite your friends to vote on this contest, however telling them to vote specifically for your photo will get you disqualified. Links to this thread will show up at the bottom, so please no funny stuff.

3. Top 3 get a free calendar shipped to them.

4. In case of a tie, to simplify matters, I will make the final selection.

5. Voting will close in 7 days.

6. You can only vote once. After you press VOTE you cannot change your vote. Please be sure you make 13 selections ONLY

7. Enjoy the eye candy !

Hi Marty, some great pics this year. Only thing i wish to comment on is the scalation of some of the pictures... Some of the dimensions aren't right, also with our picture. Is it possible you change that? If you want fixed dimensions for the calendar you might have to crop a few of them. Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the comment but...

Yes, of course, I'll take care of all the cropping if needed for the calendar. No worries.

Debbie

Okay, cause some of the pictures really look crappy now, no offense... We know some of the original pictures and they look totally different. I see some weird looking heads and stuff now. For us it's more difficult to give a good judgement on the pictures like this.

There's some amazing photos in here! However, some are definitely not resized to maintain the original aspect ratio. Photos that don't look right to me are 2,4,11,12,14,20, and 26.

I don't really get it anymore, I thought we were supposed to send in square pics:

The finished photos will be
12" x 12" in. at 200dpi. This translates to an image 2400x2400 at 200dpi.

Menhir
10-12-2010, 03:52 AM
Same here, I sent pic with 1:1 ratio and, well, if that hatchling would have had that head....:shock:
I agree with what has been said. Some pictures, especially portraits, look really crappy that way.

One question - will we blame the people who voted for their own pic in the end?

No, that's what helps keep it fair. If you know who took each picture, you might only vote for your friends and not necessarily the best photo.

Magnum
10-12-2010, 12:13 PM
I asked, because there are some phenomenal pictures and I would like to know who took them.

And I voted for the pics I like and not for the pics of friends.

Marty
10-12-2010, 02:29 PM
AFter the contest is done, everyone is welcomed to reveal which photo was theirs...honestly, I don't even know who is who. I dumped all the photos into one place and renamed them all...I'll have to dig through emails and pick out the people that made it into the calendar.

What happens if you vote for less than 13 pictures? will your vote be disqualified? is it a strict 13?

If it tells you anything, I added up all the votes and it works out to something like 10.2 votes per person. So not everyone is voting for 13.

44 is also out of proportion by the way.

Hahaha my thoughts exactly but I think losing to animals that have very noticeable underbites and overbites is just as bad, hahaha. I am not trying to start anything, just saying.:biggrin:

I sympathize with you. My picture didn't even qualify because the Silver Eyed Cat Gecko was on a fake plant and was deemed "unnatural"! When the heck did leos ever live in the grass? That's "natural"??? Oh well, every year we have this same issue. Can't make everyone happy. But the calenders always come out looking nice.

Kita
10-13-2010, 01:25 PM
Same here! I had three different colored Tokay girls on a piece of cork bark outside, but I think it was a little too small. I made sure to pick one that was completely in focus instead like a good chunk of what made it that has just a head over a blurry background. I don't know, I wasn't told why mine was refused.

GeckoHunter
10-13-2010, 07:33 PM
I'm truly amazed at how stunning some of these photographs are! I am looking forward to seeing who makes the calendar and finding out who took each entry.
Seriously, folks - some really fantastic entries this year!

In regards to voting, here are a few things that I looked at before I voted (and please keep in mind, this is just my opinion):

1/ Does the photo display good composition? Does it 'flow smoothly' to the eye?
2/ Is the animal in focus? In particular, its head/eyes?
3/ Is the background too distracting/cluttered? Does it distract from the main subject?
4/ Is the photograph good/nice enough to look at for an entire month on my wall?

Just some of my thoughts anyway.

Good luck, everyone!

Marty
10-13-2010, 08:12 PM
OK....I finally got access to the comp with the original photos. Looks like my batch re-size program screwed things up and re-sized all photos into squares without considering the vertical dimension, that's why some of the photos look distorted... All original photos look very good so just squint your eye when you vote :) My bad!!! I have to get the photos ready for the printer ASAP and honestly will not have much time to resize each photo individually and upload it and recreate the thread and wait another week for voting to finish. Rest assured that the final calendar will be top quality and with correct aspect ratio... Mea Culpa !!!

I am disgusted at the childish, rude, and harshness of some of the remarks I just read. I am referring to Hypnotoad, Nigel Moses, and Riverside Reptiles and their comments regarding my Navi.

I love Navi, sure she isnt a fancy type gecko, shes 8 years old, nothing really unique, but she is beautiful all the same. That photo means alot to me because she was pregnant and just glowing, her eyes to me are like jewels. She has brought me so much joy over these last few years and her babies bring me joy as well. She is not a hobby, or a breeding project, she is my beloved pet and she looks beautiful no matter where she is.

Having her on grass is not natural? maybe not natural to the regions she hails from but she doesnt seem to mind. I take her out to the fields to crawl around in the fresh air, warm sun, just to live free for a bit. Thats all I ever want out of life, so I share it with her.

So if you want to be spiteful and petty about a few votes who cares, i thinks its cool just seeing her pretty face up there :)

Good luck to everyone, all the geckos here are just wonderful!

I don't think that anyone meant anything against you or your little Navi. It obviously wasn't personal considering that up until just now, none of us even knew who's picture it was. Apologies at your being offended.

I didnt take it as a hit on me, but I didnt like the disrespect my gecko was getting. I am a protective mommy I guess. I know I am not a great photographer, I dont even try to be one, so if someone was picking on my photographer skills I would have agreed... I just didnt like Navi being picked on, but I thank you for your apologies, and accept them.

I wasn't referring to your gecko in the grass. I was bringing up the geckos that clearly have underbites and overbites, as far as I can see your gecko looks very healthy and fully developed.

Hey Nigel why is ur dog so ugly?????? i think hes got an underbite!!!
Seriously if ur gonna comment on someones pics, you might as well be open to taking the crap u dish out.

furthermore, Riverside Geckos:
as admin for the site, you think you might have a bit more tact. I havent had the chance to read all tho posts on this thread or those related to the photo contest, but you would think that you would be trying to support the individuals that actually take the time to make these contests, and the site for that matter, actually matter. what does it matter who"s pet ur knocking? have some respect people. I just joined this site, and first impessions are really disappointing.

NigelMoses
10-15-2010, 12:22 PM
He actually does have an underbite, thanks. That is typical of a French Bulldog. It is not typical, normal, nor healthy for a gecko to have an underbite or an overbite. It is also equally as bad if they make the calendar. I do not care if my picture makes it but I do think that a site that prides itself on the knowledge and the information it contains about geckos, should not present such pictures in a calendar. It is quite embarrassing. Each individual species represented should be at the utmost health. Not some malnourished deformed animal.

Congrats on just joining the site and getting a bad first impression, I'll send a pin.

I don't think that anyone was knocking anyone else's particular animal. I was simply saying that a leopard gecko in the grass was no more "natural" than a cat gecko on a plastic leaf. There was no "lack of respect". It was a simple opinion (which, admin or not, I am allowed). And I personally think that Bruce is correct in that photos of unhealthy animals should not be included in the calender. And he never mentioned a specific animal, so I fail to see where he was being rude either. I'm sorry that your first impression is poor, but this site, compared to most internet forums, is very friendly and community driven. Some people are obviously more sensitive than others though. If you want to talk about being rude, I think that entering a new community and attacking members and staff with your first post is relatively rude personally (especially considering that apologies had already been made and accepted by the offended person). So it seems as though we both have poor first impressions. If you have more to say, please feel free to send me a PM. But let's not continue to clutter up this thread.
Thanks,
Ethan

Maybe we will get lucky and get 2% of the "population" to vote :lol:

I think this forum only has 150-200 "members" so if you look at it from that point of view we are getting the same turnout as a presidential election ;)

Derek, you're always harping on the number of actual "members" that we have posting here. The statistics are posted for you to see at the bottom of the forum index. In the past 30 days we have had 1,400+ individual members make posts. That's more than many forums have for their total membership. As I always say, if you want more posts, start some topics that will incite conversation. :nana:

I am amused by this thread. Folks, if you want something "fair" - never ever submit to a forum photo contest! Typically, the winners of these contests are (a) rare species no matter how crappy the pic, (b) too common species in a "cute" position, and (c) the pictures of well-known board members that spam their picture in a "VOTE FOR ME" mail to all their friends. So, for the guys who put attention to the aspect of photography, lay back, enjoy, but don't hope to win. I submitted for the second time and will have no chance at all, but I also do not expect anything. Given that, there is no need to argue or get personal etc.
One thing I would like to add to the discussion of "natural" - what the hell is natural with pictures taken in vivs? If you want something natural, restrict the contest to wildlife pictures. Otherwise, I don't see where to draw a fair line. Regarding the underbite; I absolutely agree with what has been said about including animals that do not look perfectly healthy. For me it's a no go.

Best,
Micha

Btw. not voting for contests I submitted to is mandatory for me.

you need to relax, it's only the internet. I see nothing wrong with their comments since it's a fairly obvious thing they were commenting on. I thought it as well.

On the other hand you're just rude. Especially since you're only post is to attack other forum members. I'm sorry you're friend got offended, maybe they should take the virtual world so seriously.

You make some good points. I was mostly moaning to give Marty a hard time. He's denied my pics every year for the same reason...not natural enough. My thing is catching a rare species in an act of natural behavior (ie sleeping, hunting, etc)...I could care less about the background. You're just not going to get that if you have a nocturnal species out on a flower in the middle of the day. But honestly, it's no big deal to me. I just like to complain. If it really meant that much to me I'd pull some geckos out and stick 'em in cute little outfits on a flower :p

10-16-2010, 06:44 PM
Haha...Ethan, you're acting as if I rejected your photo because it wasn't natural enough. I should have said that the reason is that your photo was only 72dpi and horizontal dimension of the original was 1944px - not enough for print. The cropped was even worse 600px wide at 72dpi, which is OK for posting it in a thread but not nearly enough for print...plus only one submission was to be sent, not two :P

in other words your photo would be rejected anyways, even if I didn't even open the file, to view it.

Truth is that I don't want a collection of geckos on deli-cups and fake plants in a calendar that people have to look at for a year ... At the end of the day Calendar sales are a big part of funding for GU and I want to make sure it's as appealing as possible. I will be using it too and it has to appeal to me in the end! You could also argue that 72dpi and 600px wide is acceptable for you and a little blurry photo is not an issue as long as the gecko is rare and healthy. Accept the fact (though it may be hard!) that I'm trying to produce a quality calendar here and not a collection of web quality photos suitable for forum posts.

Be nice and stop moaning dude - Mods are getting free calendars this year, because I appreciate your help! And if a Lawn Leo :yikes: makes the calendar, it only means that members wanted it that way.

I was staying silent cuz the mod had asked it, but since he spoke back up . . .

I also agree that it was blown out of proportion and people need to chill since the deformed comment was not specified to a certain animal and the desert gecko photographed in grass was not an insult.

Just out of curiosity: when can we order them? bc until they are printed and shipped over to europe it's gonna take quite a while and only 2 months left until 2011 ;-)

but don't want to pressurize you, so don't get me wrong!

Really looking forward to the calender!

Hey Marty ~

Should have been following this thread. My bad.

Nice to hear that us Mods rate a free 2011 calendar each this year! Thanks.

About my ice cream cone: Sounds good to me, Ethan! How about a Baskin Robbins peppermint candy ice cream cone in celebration of it all? Two scoops will be just fine. I can pick it up in downtown Portland :D whenever you say. (Thanks, Ethan, for another of your "sweet" ideas!!!)

Looks like I shot myself in the foot with the free calendar offer :) Printer told me that they won't be able to schedule me as I'm beyond the deadline..Looks like next years Calendar will need to be started in June :) Also sucks that I'll now have to buy retail calendars for the mods :blushing:

I should have the calendars up, before the weekend

That's OK, Marty. "Retail" calendars would be nice, but certainly not necessary. (I'll keep volunteering anyway.)

Which calendar do the mods receive? If the wall, very nice! If the print, can we choose which one? (I definitely know which I'd choose!)

I received the print calendar which shows Dylan van Winkel's Naultinus elegans elegans photo a couple weeks ago. Just an excellent daily reminder of those green New Zealand emeralds :biggrin:.

Cheers to Marty! :yahoo:
