    Jeremy.

    why should you be ineligible? just don't vote for yourself. unlike Matt and Phil you actually take pictures. you should be included.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Thanks Eric, I appreciate the thought. Unfortunately though I think judges work being ineligible is the right decision. I wouldn’t want there to be even a hint of an appearance that the contest voting is anything other than completely impartial.

    Well I hope this doesn't come off the wrong way, but I'm glad Jeremy is ineligible- his photos are way better than my own!

    Outstanding shots sir- love your use of tilted horizons

    Just to clarify that is not Alaska, it is Horizon Air :P And although my shots won't count for the contest I will submit some in the thread in the next couple days.

    My point was that it's condescending. If you'd like to discuss my spotting/photography further, start a new thread or email me. Hence my above reply edit.

    But, these are my own shots.
