Last vote (1p): Wfrank Again, a great pic, worthy of a better place in a lesser month
Many more worthy of at least 1p. Actually, this month, I would have happily voted for more than half the submissions! Feeling guilty towards Sebboh, Brian and some others. Please forgive me, people!

Hmm, I think I made a mistake. My beach chair shot is actually from August, and I posted it in the wrong competition. What should I do now, remove it from that thread and add it to this one, and put another one over there, leave it empty, or what?

It's up to Brian, but I don't think it really matters. If you win, it should carry the * of shame for posting in the wrong month.

Philippe, I posted my August shot in July, stupidly forgetting the rules when returning from holiday. I haven't posted here yet, but I guess I ought to move it here. Brian?

Or should I just leave it, and find a July shot for this thread?
