Welcome ladies, gentlemen and birds, to the 2007 calendar competition!!

As some of you may have seen in a previous post, I have offered to make the calendar we all knew about and voted before Christmas. Although I had many people discussing for and against I have now decided to make my own, in my own way (no offense to Lisa laugh )

This is how it will work - you all have just one week to submit ANY photograph of your birdies!! They can Photoshopped or added to in anyway!
To make it easier for me (LOL!)I would appreciate if your submitted photograph was not cropped and, if possible, horizontal (with a horizontal calendar the quality of the finished result would be a lot better if all photographs were the same way- I have tried before and failed to make vertical photographs fit into the horizontal calendar, it is possible but doesn't look that good - honestly! - There IS a vertical calendar available so if we get enough vertical photographs that people vote for I could easily organise a second calendar? (why not upload one of each?!) smile )

I am very excited to be producing the calendar for everybody and cannot wait to see your babies!! As said before there will be no profits made for this calendar, let's say I am giving you all a late Christmas present!! X
(apart from the fact that you have to pay for it:D)

So, the entry week for bird pictures starts... NOW!!! :p
BRING IT ON!!!

PLEASE READ!!!

Please can you name your photographs so when voting begins everyone (by that I mean me!!) can just post the name and I can count... (I know there is probably an easier way to do this but I am not THAT good at posts and computer linkage-thingys so this is the idea I have come up with laugh If anyone has a better way please send me a private message and let me know.. thanks )

Ooo, it would be good to say which month you would like your photo in. Like Viggo_and_Pigs_Mom, I think that Wedding photo would be great for May or June. smile

What colour did you want again? lol actually i will see if I can get all four 2 and 2 in a square with some sort of border more like a Warhol. I dont know if it's good enough but I'll try anyway.

I'm with you there Coco's mom... I just hope we get 12 mindblowing photographs by the end of it! I'm positive we'll get more! laugh

PLEASE could everyone try to post only photographs that are in focus, I know they are your babies but I think everyone would prefer birdies we can see properly, I know how hard it is to keep the birds still though!!! laugh laugh

LOL! I totally understand the art thing.. I am halfway through a university art course (an access to uni anyway) and I have just started the section on photography ( what I wish to do as an honours degree course after this one) and just LOVE seeing other peoples work.

As for voting and how long to enter, I did say one week for both but if by next week we don'y have that many then I guess I shall extend the entry time.. It's really up to everyone who enters.. This is a very open competition laugh
I just wanna get the calender done so quickly so we can have it hanging for some of Jan!! (It would not be fair on whoever gets January if noone can hang it up because we are in Feb!!) smile

I am sure loads more entrys will blow us away! TELL EVERYONE you know with a bird to enter!!! laugh

Yeah, that flight shot is a bit blurry. Mostly because my camera takes 2816x2112 pixel Superfines. That's been cropped and zoomed, and I have to original, but it's been shruken to a good size be Photobucket. My batteries are charging now, and I've figured out the settings, so expect some nice photos! smile

Ophelia- You have to get a flight shot in they are so nice * ahem..taps ruler on desk* Your assignment for today is to take as many flying budgie photos as you can in a day. I expect the assignments best works submiited right here. Good Luck!!

Hehe, I can't believe Caleb eats crisps. So funny! I need to get some veggies for Ophie, we're low on keet-safe veggums. So she's just getting less seed, more kibble now. (I think you'll enjoy the picture about her reaction to this...)

I'll be sure to get some flight shots! I love taking them. We have some delays though, Ophelia's partially damp, which doesn't make for good flying, and she eating.

I'm so excited about the calendar!

Oh, you could do runner-ups too. You know how on some calendars, there are smaller pictures before the first day of the month? That might be good so more people could get in .

Haha i think the scrabble one for Sept (back to school would be cute, Love the words spelled out. Can u get it with no stuff in the background, the mousepad, camerabox and cds are taking away from her presensce and the clever wit of the board-if she was on the other side of the tiles on the pic under the heart pellet pic I think it is #11, i would vote 4 it.
By the way I gave you an A+ for effort and an A- for results. (only cos i like clean backgrounds. I 'm a picky bird lol.


Please do another Scrabble one i think it's so great.

Yeah, I know. I noticed after I took the picture..I'll try another. I always overlook things like that with pet pictures because with pets it can be a one-time chance. She's taking a rest right now, so I'll let her do that, and get her out for a few other pictures.

Of course, the desk/wallpaper has to stay, but that will make it look clean but real. A few of those other ones can be cropped a bit to lessen in mess in the backgroud, the originals are huge! Like, twice my computer screen.

Well, I hope you guys like these. I had to redo the words about 20 times because she ran over them about 20 times. And she kept getting mad and flying away, so I got mad, and we started sqwuaking at each other because we both have really bad tempers, and now we aren't on speaking termms. mad

(Some of the mess-mess ones like Dane Cook were simply taken on the spot, so those I can't really fix. I'm messy--like my bird.)

...But I got the pictures. a few will need to be cropped about 50-100 pixels, but it should be okay.

I'm thinking again..
[Linked Image]

You didn't get those points for that!
[Linked Image]

I give up...

Edit:We're cuddly again. She's on my shoulder. I hate my temper--I get it from my Dad. Ophelia started throwing Scrabble pieces, and I started throwing the camera (at the floor...nothing at her) and she flew away and I shut her music off, and she squawked and I yelled....wow...I think I'm a way too into my bird (is that even possible?) *kisses Ophelia* My baby.

Hehe, thanks Alateriel! Zeus is so cool too! I gotta teach Ophelia to pick out clothes for me. :-P

Do you mean the Sony or the Canon PowerShot A540? The Sony is my moms, and the Canon is mine. Except, the Sony doesn't work really, because I stole it's batteries.

Ophelia loves to eat the Canon. Its so cute.

I can't decide which I like best, the one where she has her foot on the tiles or the one where she is moving a tile with her beak! Both are so adorable! laugh

I just LOVE them.

your ophelia is a beautie. I get po'd at sasha sometimes because when he's out he rules the house. I can't get dressed, brush teeth, go potty, without him being in my business. But, I'm crazy over him and he get's his way. I've got him spoiled rotten to the core. Just like your Ophelia.

I just love all the photo's. I won't be able to submit one of Snowing Feather and Perfect Lady becuz of digital camera insuffiency.....crummy camera. But, I really want to look into downloading my camcorder and take still-shots of my video if possible becuz I have so much footage of Snowing Feather in the wild. Someday for sure. I may have to buy a special program.

Thanks Fab and thanks everyone for the awesome photos.

Ophelia- I think the very first scrabble picture you posted is the best! It's sooo cute!

Do you have photoshop? If you do, you can blur out the background so only Ophie and the board are in focus.

I have Microsoft Photo Editor, and I might try that. She really does look like she's thinking!

Ophelia: I like the one where she's moving the tile, if you could just try to lighten it a little. What is it, gamma corrections, something like that. If only it were as bright as the first one. It's so cool how she is actually moving the tile. smile

Yeah, brightness and contrast, right? I'm going to touch them up a bit. laugh

Okay, I got the touch-ups. Much better! Thanks! The blurring isn't very effective though. If any one knew a better way to blur than what I have, that's be great!

This is the best blurring I could do:

What about the one where her foot is on the tiles? That one would be good in a blur? I already tried to do that blur, but it blurred EVERYTHING, and when I tried to smudge, it just made everything look weird, like, bent.

Alatariiel: I was wondering if the backround could be blurred on the photo of Zeus looking in the mirror.

Birdfriend had done that for Ophelia's photo. I just love that photo of Zeus.

Actually, that photo could be cropped to take out the right side.

It could be for October. smile

well, I kinda lied!!! LOL My man knew how to do it (I should have seen how! I shall ask though and let you know!) I know he used the paint programme on my computer (one that came with Windows) and made a rectangle with a box and then used the "stretch/skew" tool and applied 100% horizontal... what it does it take the highlighted section and copys it, somehow!, and then drag it to the end and TAAA DAAA!!!!! It moved the image across!!

I shall ask him when he pops over tomorrow what he did and I shall also ask him to post on here to tell you proper, like!! laugh laugh I try LOL!!!

Fabutam: I just love that photo! I love the 3 D-ness of it. smile

I want a keet: Mine let me take their photos all the time. I just talk to them like i always do when I take hte photo. I say to them "Aww, what a good baby! OH so cute!!" when they do something I want a photo of, then i get the camera and I say the same thing as I get the camera up level for the photo. At first they may get frightened, but I just repeat that this is a camera and that they are cute and sweet. Then they fluff and do that thing I said was cute again, and I take their photo. smile

They're all pretty used to it now. I think only McCartney or Lennon might get spooked now, sometimes. But Scouser, he's so taken with it now. He poses for me all the time. laugh

sam sees the camera and decides he wants to look in the lens, lick the flash, bite the camera, bite the blinking light....anything but let me take a good picture of him! so far i love all of these pictures....oh and to make the picture portrait go into paint and go to the stretch/skew button and just stretch it

OK... As no one has answered me I will assume that nobody wants an extention to the entry time (one week) SO guys, gals & birdies, entry to the 2007 calender competition will END on SATURDAY 20th Jan! THATS tommorrow!!!!
THEN the voting shall begin!!!

As I've said before, voting will be only ONE week too... Lets get this calender moving shall we!!! laugh I shall be completing the calender next weekend and (hope) to have it finished and available to purchase on SUNDAY 28th Jan... THAT does mean that we all might not get it until FEB SOOOOO I shall sort something out for Jan... perhaps a cartoon picture of birdies?... No point in giving someone January if noone will be hanging it up in Feb, showing it off!! Please let me know if you have any other ideas for January (NOT fair on whoever gets it I think) laugh laugh KEEP `EM COMING!!!

I think that we still should do a January. After all, we could always tear the page off and save the photo. smile

Personally, I think that I am going to eventually frame every single month laugh

Fabutam- Is there a way for the calendar to start in February 2007 and end January 2008? That way we could use every month.

I think Fabutam thought it would be great to have one additional photo per bird... ??? for something extra special...??? But we keep the photos we've already got for the calendar...

I like the idea of having photos onto another page, to help make it easier to locate photos, to see what ones are described in the poll.

I do like the idea of lessoning the amount of photos submitted per bird. I think maybe the top 2 photos per bird to not be too limited. I just don't want someone to not submit a terrific photo and we miss out. Because redoing the calendar, we are already missing out on some great photos that had been submitted to the other calendar.

I hope Alatariiel will choose Zeus looking into a mirror as one of hers to put into that other section, becuase that one is beautiful.

I think there should be a thumnail of the photo posted and the name and birds name all in one so we can see all the submission small version withought having to go through 8 pages, or something simple like that the more computer savvy may know what i mean, also Jan could be 4 six or 8 pics of runner ups so u can cut out or save the pics.

Or the January winner could also be the cover, becuase the back side of January's photo would be the cover of the calendar. smile
