I think a lot of us can understand that, I've had choppers block for a couple of years so I seldom have an image in a contest these days. I'll be watching this thread closely just in case anyone has a good idea!

A COUPLE OF YEARS?!!? Noooooo. That is not cool. You should seek therapy. lol! JK!

I think my problem is contests in general. I dont care too much about competition, but I am having a hard time competing with the material. I see alot of political and humor type entires winning so I try to conform and work along those lines. It is not that I cant do it, but more like I dont want to do it. I get that politics and humor are always gonna be popular but GOD, if I see one more chop of obama/romney....I will need anger managment. haha!

This site is awesome and so are the people, but I dont think my chops fit in.

Or this could all just PMS. Who knows. haha!

We can all go dry in the brain at times, crickets chirp and cobwebs get made, if I have an interest in entering a contest, take for instance the "beer label" one, I started by downloading bottles of beer, or anything pertaining to beer, saw the Heineken label, thought, ...Heineken, Romneyken, Romneycan, and that led to the rest, then I was downloading boxing poses, etc. But it doesn't always go so easy, I start many entries but give up on them if they look boring and not interesting enough.
My motto is when you think you are finished with an entry, think of something else to make it even better, and keep doing that till you can't edit anymore.
I have an entry in a contest now that I edited at least 7 or 8 times already.

I too "despise" "Obama/Romney" entries, yet I find myself doing them at times. The nature of the beast, the more time I spend on this site, the more political I'm getting. As I stated on another forum discussion I registered as a voter for the very first time in my 64 years. But I still hate politics.

Seems like you are not the only one Veroni, 0 entries in Google contest, 10 in diving contest, 13 in falling from sky, and that contest is over, and only 2 in News in Pictures.

What's going on?

The pictures being produced now are so outstanding, it is intimidating, knowing there is little chance of making the top ten, let alone win.

High quality chops seem to place lower than others made with less skill. Not every time, but enough to be annoying. This tends to happen when there are more entries.

I agree with you, but I myself am not intimidated to enter against better entries. I seriously think that it is the contest types that are not doing it for me. I dont always like to do humor. I guess thats what gets me....I dont like to do caricatures for every contest because thats what is the popular winner here. I dont begrugde those choppers their entries but for me I dont always want to have to make something like that to win. I am looking forward to halloween contests because then I can have some fun. woot woot!

I am the queen of WOOD here! haha. I am ok with that. It is fun to get a comment about something stupid I have put together. I like making people laugh, I am just not used to doing it with photoshop.

I agree with you Veroni , I have had crickets chirp syndrone these past few weeks . It seems that whatever the contest is (Doesn't matter what it is),its always a chop of Obama , Romney or Putin that is taking the top 4th . I really get tired of it myself because i'm soooo done with trying to think of other ways to manipulate those guys . Maybe the Halloween contest & other themes of other countries during October can bring a change here with a rule of not putting Presidents in them !!!! Just a thought .

I agree with you 100%!

I'm hoping Halloween will be fun, because if not the crickets will keep chirping for me. It is time for a NEW trend to come into play here. Then that will be done to death and we can complain about that too. hahaha!

My mom locked me in my room the one (and only) time I had "writer's block" (report for school I didn't want to write) and didn't let me out until I found a cure (which meant the report was complete).

I'm not suggesting you go with my mom's cure (and, it was a cure...I'll give her that), but sometimes just making something...anything... is a way to get past these things.

The contests here ain't exactly been flooded with entries lately, though...it might not just be you. Slim pickins on themes might play a part as well.

Ok, so the plan is to lock myself in my room tomorrow and see if I can enter any of these dead contests. There are hardly any entries in any of these contests. I dont think I am the only one going through the chop funk. So wish me luck, and hopefully this place will come back from it;s vegtable state before someone ppulls the plug. lol

I've said in another thread here, that I am tired of seeing Obama and Romney in everything. I know it's ok for the news type themes, but they don't need to be in everything. It's burning me out...lol

There is a lot of in fighting between our political parties. The Tories led by David Cameron and Labour led by Ed Milliband.

The Tories want to increase taxes, a sure fire vote loser.
