I Clicked it Up a Notch Photography Contest-October 2012
I Clicked it Up a Notch

I am sad to say but this is going to be our last I Clicked it Up a Notch photography contest. I need to cut back on a few things and this contest didn’t make the cut. I still want to see your photos of you Clicking it Up a Notch so I hope you will continue to share them on our Facebook page.

This past month I really focused on shooting daily again. I forgot how much I enjoy that and also what a challenge that can be. It was a hard choice for me this month but I decided to pick something other than my kiddos.

Did you click it up a notch this month?? I know you did!! Show us what you got!

In order to be eligible to win, please read the list below.

  • -Only one photo in the entry post.
  • -Our button (not just a link) must be in the post.
  • -The photo needs to have been taken this month.
  • -Summit your permalink, not your main blog address. You can use a flickr account as well (Just add the button in the comment section)

Click It Up A Notch

That’s it! It’s that simple! So go through all your photos you have taken this month (October) and submit your favorite/best one. Don’t forget to leave comments on the other entries because that is half the fun!! I recommend commenting on the 5 people in front of you. That way everyone gets at least 5 comments.

Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to comment on everyone’s post as I am going out of town this weekend. Yay!! But I will still go through and every entry to view them and pick the top 5.

We will pick our top 5 favorite and then you will vote for the winner. Contest closes November 3rd midnight EST.

    Does the picture have to have a specific theme or just that it was taken this month?

      This was taken for a young gal having her senior pictures…it is taken at our hometown train depot and view this as her looking at where she is at and where she is going~

    Very nice lighting effect. It is like the long lost toy is saying “I’m over here!”

    Oh so sad this will be the last of these fun posts I really have loved them so I had to play along! Thank you for giving the inspiration!

    I’m sorry to say this is my first entry– sorry I missed so much fun! But good for you drawing healthy boundaries! :-)

    I’m going to miss this contest, but I understand the need to keep our families a priority, which is why I don’t join in as often as I’d like. Your photo is so sweet. Tells a story and I love the lighting.
