Oleg, I did not notice this when I put up the poll, but you're using data from previous years in your image. This violates rule number four:

Quote:

4. All entries must be captured within the same season as the contest. For example, if the subject was Orion Nebula, than any photo captured during this particular winter (or period that it was visible) would qualify for the contest.




I really don't know what else I can do but disqualify your entry and declare avdhoeven the finalist for November. I'm really sorry to have to do this but the rules are very clear on this.

Charlie

Thank you, Andre.
Charlie did the right thing: it's my unconscious mistake. In the future I will pay more attention to the rules.
Oleg.
