I just looked at the new competition details, does anyone else understand them?
I'm not sure if the subject is supposed to be pics of men, women or both and the balence between them, or if it's just 'balence' . and also , do we have to team up with a man or woman to take the photo, or take two photos(one each) that are judged togeather etc etc, maybe I'm dizzy today, but I couldn't work out what it was supposed to mean.

Paul, you are excused - its a Sunday!

Basically, I think that we all submit photos as usual, and there's an overall winner as usual too. But in addition to that, the system adds up the votes from all the bloke members and all the lady members, and gives a total for each group. Then we'll see who's the fairer sex! Couldn't be simple! ;-D

I'm not confused, just blank!

Theme is Balance, so can be anything to do with the word.

You have to have visited your Profile to say Male or Female and the idea is to see if the 'wimmin' can come up with good enough pics to justify being the 'Fair Sex'. No other rule.

I've just submitted my entry and clicked the female bit in my portfolio. I'm ready to go!!!

Was hard work though coming up with an idea, especially one that the blokes might think a bloke has come up with!!!

He he he he he .......;oP

The one i might send has nothing to do with balance and is poor quality, so ive changed my name to karla on my portfolio ; ^ )

Well that would work "Karla" but the names are coming off and nobody will be able to tell anyway! ;o)

The competition wording is changed, hopefully it's even clearer now.

Apologies if it says this somewhere and I missed it, but perhaps the fairer sex should be based upon the average clicks per picture to even out the imbalance in numbers.

Never mind average clicks, what about average cliques?

Well if this site is anything to go by , the way to get maximum clicks is to do a shot of two naked ladies on a see saw . *joking*

Or two dogs on a seesaw! Or even two birds of prey on a seesaw! Wink

A male and female robin on a seesaw - at sunset of course...each with a gerbera in its beak....

LOL... maybe we should be checking not whether male or female is the fairer sex, but whether naked women or robins or sunsets or gerberas get the most clicks!!
