Very cool!

It's mysteriously missing pictures from photographer "Steve". :P

Seriously, me and Chris are going to bug you until you give us pics :P

How lovely! RES are so neat. They are beautiful and they just ooze personality. That really comes through in the pics.

We really must think about a calendar.

Calendars not a bad idea, you could use the pic you posted of all the past winners as its cover. Just would need to come up with something for the interrior (sp?).

Most of the photos are not large enough to be suitable from printing, but we should have enough for a calendar. In the "fine print" of the rules page, I can use the photos submitted but I still want to track down photographers so they can be properly credited. There needs to be a process to pick which ones are chosen and which turtle-charity/org that would receive any proceeds -- unless the calendar is presented at cost. But, it's not like I thought about it ;)

Oooh, very awesome! I see some great shots there for sure, no wonder they all won. And I see my wittle Hurley in there twice! Such a good boy, yes he is, oh yes he is...*scritches his chin.....OUCH......gets bit*

Well, only a handful were winners and finalists. I am a sucker for chin-rub pics :)

calender sounds great. if you need higher res photos I'm sure they could be provided. It would be a a lot of work to put together.

The tough part would be choosing which pics :)

Why not have a special calendar contest? and then have a vote. Top 12 make it on.

Just a thought :)

I think other forums do this very thing around the holidays.

A vote might be tricky considering all the pics we get. Remember, the ones above are just some of my personal favorites. I'll look into it though.
