Default 2013 Calendar - Vote for Winners

Below are the final picks for the 2013 OrchidBoard 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. Crazy amount of photos this year !

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.

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 !

Marty, I spotted a duplicate. Photos 44 and 49 are the same, except that the lighting is different.

Wow!

How am I supposed to choose only 13 of these?

Is it ok to ask for some identification and names on some of these orchids?

I've seen a bunch that I would like to put on my wishlist.

If anyone can tell me the names of the following I'd be a very happy girl....

7: What is that? I LOVE it. I think the color and shape is just so cool.

10: I've got a slight tendency to lean towards purple chids at the moment. I really like this one.

38: I don't know... I just immediately thought I WANT ONE when I saw this picture. What is it?

41: What an incredibly charming, cute little thing! Never seen this one before. Do you know what it is?

60: Yeah, I said I was into purple and bluish orchids, right? So...nuff said.

83: I waaaant one. This looks so amazing.

87: And I want one of these too.

91: Yeah...yeah...yeah...it's the blue purple phase that is talking again.

Amazing pictures from everybody.

May the prettiest orchids win!

Couldn't we have a new picture every week = 52?

Otherwise, what Rosie said!

Sorry, but there are pics here that are out of focus, blurry, poorly composed and yet you rejected other people who presented better pics. I have seen this for several years.. I wont bother to try again and I am sure some other members wont either. This comp blows..

Even very good pictures can be rejected, if they aren't in the right orientation, and if they aren't of high enough resolution.

Personally I think Marty does a great job. He organizes these competitions in his free time, and I can only imagine how much work it is to sort through probably well over 100 emails, download the pics, sort through them, put together this thread.... It could be that yours simply fell through the cracks.
