    What I cannot figure out, when I searched the category of dogs, I don't see your white dog picture, but the puppy image shows further down the page.

    I just searched and found it. It currently has a score of 628, but there were a few with a score of 627 ahead of it. Weird; maybe there's a delay of some sort.

    I figured it out, you can search by day, two days, week, all, etc.

    A couple of years ago AT introduced me to this site.

    I don't spend much time on it at all, but periodically I will have a look and submit an image every now and then. Sometimes I will enter their free competitions on a half-hearted basis. Sometimes the photo will finish in the top 5 or 5%.

    I did this again a couple of weeks ago (but this time it was a sponsored contest) and then forgot about it.

    Today I received an email saying I had placed 3rd in a competition with 6500 images. I won a Gary Fong diffuser. It isn't a big deal, but a nice unexpected surprise.

    Now to see if they will ship it to Australia.

    Thanks mate.

    It is a older photo and I must admit I am embarrassed by the processing looking back on it now. The theme was "dramatic light".

    I will also add that the winners are chosen by the members of the site via a multiple head to head voting system. I find that I often totally disagree with results, and they don't reflect my personal tastes. It often is the most colourful or boldest images or (dare I say) the most garish HDR that score the highest. From memory I think I may have entered another image that I much prefer that didn't even make the top 20%.

    The image page is located here Waterscapes | Landscapes | Pixoto and the contest winners are here Photo Contest: The Dramatic Light | Pixoto

    The people at Gary Fong were excellent in following me up and shipping the diffuser. It arrived yesterday. I am now a happy owner of a Lightsphere® Collapsible

    Not bad for an entry to a contest that had no cost and when I had no expectations at all.
