Hey all, I seem to have won a sponsored contest with a $200.00 prize that turned out to be a free year of the Pixoto Pro package, (Country Roads)...I love Pixoto, it is the most interesting and fun photo site ever! But I am not interested in a Pro Membership. because this site is delightfully addictive already. I especially enjoy voting on pics from all over this beautiful world. And I have gotten to know some great folks who I never would have known without Pixoto.

My pic that won this contest is nothing special. It was a cloudy midday and has no great light or shadow. Although it shows a spectacular landscape, it's just a pic I shot with a cheap point and shoot that could be duplicated by a child with a disposable camera.

What makes me sad is the incredible pics entered in this contest that did not win. Some of the light captured by these folks is chill bump worthy..My Question for the Staff is: can someone else take the free Pro Membership? I would really like to pick my version of the best Photograph in this contest and give them the prize. Maybe a member of the staff could pick a better photo?

PS...I'm not completely noble because I would like to keep the Judges Award on my Profile.hee hee. Plus I'm not that Internet savy and my Nephew tells me to avoid any "free offer" that requires a credit card number...Happy shutter clicking to all!

"Country Roads", it was a Pixoto sponsored contest. The Free Pro offer is nice, but I would rather have something that says, "Pay to the order of".

Hello Tim, congratulation on your award! Since Pixoto members chose your image as a winner, it wouldn't be fair to them for you to choose another user to get your prize. If you don't want Pro membership, that is fine too, just don't sign for it.

I hope this helps.
