what can I do?

As far as I can tell the only pictures of your own that you have successfully displayed on the forum start "http://lh5.ggpht.com/" whereas your On Assignment image starts "http://3.bp.blogspot.com/". Maybe you could host your image on the known good site and link to that?

Bob.

Hmm. Looks like a poor suggestion on my part then as I'm still not seeing it with either Firefox or IE.

But if I put
into the address box of my browser and navigate to that I see the image. The only difference I can see between this URL and the one you used successfully in this post is the inclusion of the sequence "%20" to represent a space. Memory tells me that the technique should work but if you are still having trouble you could always rename the image file to "febcontest2.jpg" and see if that works.

Bob.

That's really weird. I've yet to find a member who has successfully used Picasa to host images for display on our forum but the strange thing here is that you have successfully used your host before. If you have a Flickr account, or similar, then that would solve the problem entirely but as an interim measure why not add a link just below the broken image thus:

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Gqm92t8y6Xg/SaOSe ... ntest2.jpg

Not ideal but at least members will have a better opportunity to see your entry than at present.

Bob.

P.S. When I tried navigating to
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Gqm92t8y6Xg/SaOSe ... ntest2.jpg
I got a "Not Found" error. Are you sure you used the correct URL when you last updated your Assignment entry?

That is a great photograph, let alone the tension it indeed does emit.
The light that is cast on your right eye is just great, it is brighter than the light on your left eye and increases the feeling of doubt with subtle contrast, seriously good stuff. And as far as tension goes, the feeling in your lips do communicate some serious consternation. Great entry.

Sue ... have a little lie down in a darkened room, that should do the trick!

Not too many many submissions for <<TENSION>> this month, but very well done to all who have made the effort ... have I over-taxed the folks too much?
Still, think of it this way, the less people that subscribe the better chance each of you each have of grabbing some votes.

Come on you other sinners, there's a whole 24hrs remaining ... get cracking!

(Oh, I really do love to see you guys suffering!)

More great entries this month, and a challenging theme. mikeroch and Mark / Orsan were the best, I think, but mikeroch got my vote. I love the way it shows tension.

After long consideration my February vote went to "picturesonthemind" with his photo of the steel cable at the Grand Arch in Paris. Great composition and b&w picture. Like the short focus area and the structure of the cable.

Unfortunately, one has to decide for just *one* picture while I had four in my final decision making phase. And for one reason or another had to rule three other great ones out.

Is there a possibility that Gordon would consider a change to a "multiple votes possible" mode? We would still come to a result this way. And those pictures who would maybe get 0 votes in the 1-vote-only mode would then possibly get at least a few and the photographers would be happy. ;-) Just a thought.

Anyway, congratulations to everyone for all your entries and especially to "picturesonthemind" who is my personal winner for February!

regards,
HTG

I'm with HTG on two counts: a couple of votes per voter might spread a little happiness and encouragement to those in the middle-ground who currently only pick up the odd vote or none at all but whose efforts are nevertheless worthy of praise ... but I suspect that this might be technically very difficult, I'm sure that Bob will respond. What we really need is more individuals voting. Secondly, I too preferred 'picturesonthemind' to all others, cracking composition, bang on the topic, thoughtfully selected and technically well executed. I rate madczech's portrait highly .... the stress is tangible, quite a horror-film image. Spooky.

Bjorn. Thanks for the vote. My effort was very much a deliberate 'tongue-in-cheek' send-up of myself intended primarily to create an 'aunt sally' for people to knock off its perch and so to get the show rolling. Of the 10 frames shot that was the only that didn't make me look like a deranged relative of Quasimodo!

Interesting to note though that monochrome images are getting a good slice of the votes ... I've got a personal theory that somehow you engage harder with monochrome images for some reason. Hard to figure out how or why, I'm guessing that perhaps you subconsciously fill in colour detail in your mind and therefore just try that bit harder when looking at the image.

Hi Mikeroch and HTG, I agree, it can be hard with just one vote, but technically it may not be possible to implement a multiple vote option with the current forum software. If anyone knows a reliable mod for phpbb2.x though, let me know.
