If you take a picture with your iPhone it is geo tagged with gps location. If location services are turned on. Just trying to make sure someone doesn't take a photo from the web and call it theirs. Some SLR and point and shoot will geo tag and other will not. - GoofyJoe

I have the same question: I'm in UT and won't be able to go. Do we still get to participate? Or only people who are there? Obviously if we aren't there, then we can geo tag it. I do have pics from my previous trips that I can use, but it's not from this weekend. - Amanda

Geo tagging is automatic if you have location service running on iPhone. Other cameras have it as a option if you don't, don't worry send in the pics anyway. - GoofyJoe

Bump ... Great contest! Too bad I stink at taking pics - indyRocks
343.9 #424 1:44PM
@indyrocks, that doesn't matter,you can take good photos if you take your time and frame it up... Or cheat and use photoshop.
1864.1 #41 2:43PM
There r quite a few great pics so far - UppityEmpress
783.8 #2 3:25PM
@Mike its getting more and more difficult to choose.. I will create a rating system so we all can rate each pic then add it up and choose winner... With my class it's so much easier.
1864.1 #41 3:30PM
I'll be sure to keep my eye out for shots today :D -May - MayBie

@zooter, i made the change for you.

I have a quick question... The contest says no professional photographs... but I noticed a few photographs stamped with professional logos?? - michelledork
658.3 #159 2:07PM
Thank you GJ! I promise, no more swapping out! :) - Zooter
1361.8 #58 2:08PM
Feel like you got someone to beat, Zooter??? ;)))) - michelledork
658.3 #159 2:11PM
I did Michelle, now you do! *snap* - Zooter
1361.8 #58 2:13PM
@michelledork, you can create a macro in photoshop to always put a logo on. that means nothing, I see first year students do it all the time, in Dig1 it one of the first lessons. @Zooter, no prob, just a few steps...
1864.1 #41 2:13PM
I agree w/ calypso, hope the judges keep the prompt in mind. I'm going to he parks wed and will take some shots there I don't really have anything that fits the prompt in my collection alrdy. Will be sure to email them by fri night, GJ! - TickledTink

Someone should try the old time camera app. It creates some neat stuff. - GoofyJoe
1864.1 #41 2:59PM
@all who entered, my computer crashed but i have a backup, the restore is very slow. even with 58meg connection carbonite limits how much data you can restore at once. i will email them to push it faster. The pics are posted on flickr and i will upload the last 5 today. once up i post to here again. - GoofyJoe
1864.1 #41 8:58AM
The remaining pics are uploaded.
