I'm in the same boat, I'll try to get one on my way into work tonight, maybe over the wetlands on campus. This is one I really wanted to do, sunsets/sunrises was on my list of shots to improve on this summer along with mountain shots. Working 12 hour shifts has made this one rough though, my drive to work is at sunset, and its been up for a bit when I get home.

I am in the same place!!! I have not had a sunset or a sunrise in a week. Nothing! It is currently cloudy and I don't think we are going to get anything today, either. YUCK!!!!!!!!

I have a suggestion. Since we did not agree on a topic for this challenge until two weeks into September and several folks who were interested in participating are up against the deadline, why not extend the deadline by a week or two?

Not that I'm one of them, but for folks who still work for a living, September's window was pretty narrow.

I have no clue about the sunrises blush

At the beginning of the month we had a couple of pretty sunsets. Since the challenge started, nothing pretty or colorful that I saw frown

The question is - is that fair to the folks who got their entries in? I know I did not get mine in. It has been raining all week...

If the three people who entered are ALL fine with it, I think it is fair to consider extending this by a week. However, if they are not, I don't think it is fair to ask. Also, part of me says that those three then deserve a second crack if there's was done in a rush....

James, on one hand, I think the deadline is sacrosanct. On the other hand, I have to ask when the decision was made about the "monthly" theme and if it was less than a month, then I think we should make it 30 days to get in our entries. Of course, as one who has yet to get a shot at either sunrise or sunset, this does sound a bit self-serving but the key issue is whether monthly contests are actually a month in duration or not. My opinion: 30 days is the duration regardless of when the theme is selected.

I second the motion. I also am not (as is the case here) adversed to extending deadlines if input is limited. I am sure all of us here with entries already would enjoy a much healthier competition.

Hey Guys, I am sitting here trying to send a photo. (Having some problems getting it to launch.) I think that if we extend the closing, those who have entered can withdraw their entry and resubmit, as long as there is only one entry per person.

Doug

P.S. If I get mine to download, I will. I think I can do better.

Hey Folks,

If Marty and KatieC are OK then with extending the deadlines then I will definitely extend it a week.

Cheers
James

PS Going forward (after this contest), all challenges will have a 30 day window. I think that is good feedback.
