Hi Rob - for the SPC, do you have to do something to updated the photos it brings in to be the final count, through #131? It might be my browser, or maybe I've got the wrong link, but when I go to the voting page it only shows up to photo #104.

Hi kamalyn, Yes, when the close of entries is posted by the contest mod, watched for by Wim last night, the Toolkit is used to read all the entries in their final form. Particularly in the spc with deletions and reloads due to Exif, but also the other contests allow photos to be changed prior to the close. A few clicks and the Toolkit creates the VM html, which is then uploaded.

May I ask if you would like help with the counting and winner's post.

Thank you for the photo comment, maybe it doesn't look much when small, but I am happy with exposure on the moon and not blacked out ground. Preston is my home village, so a blue square on the GE map, eventually, will be nice.

Cheers, Rob

Hi Rob, this is one of those images that you have to view full size to appreciate. It has a great feeling of quite and calm that comes just before nightfall. I like it. Very well done, Herb

Hi Herb, Other end of the day actually, but indeed a quiet time of the day at the start of the year.

Cheers, Rob

Ooops - I wouldn't mind but I actually checked the Exif and saw the time of 08:32 but somehow still didn't translate! - OK then 'quite calm before the cacophony of full daytime'. Cheers again, Herb
