Not that I don't like the finalists, but why didn't the DA 10-17 mm lens nominated by tokyoscape get into the finale, his post got 14 likes? Or am I missing something?

When I put the poll together last night, his image was no longer visible in the thread. I PM'ed him about it and the issue has now been fixed. If I can adjust the poll I will, but as I wanted to get it posted last night when I had time to put it together, I initially had to leave it out.

It does not look like I can change the Poll, but I will check with Adam.

Some early voting action, but the polls have been quiet of late, so now is a good time to cast your ballot

I thought all images submitted would be entered in the voting? I confess I did not follow the voting procedure quite closely, but clearly my image isn't there

A bit like the monthly contests, voting is in two stages. While for the monthly contests there's a formal nomination process and then a short list for the final voting, here the initial process is done by the number of "likes" by a certain date and then the poll for the finalists. I believe I indicated this in the notes, but if something could be made clearer please let me know.

I agree with Adam, and I'd extend that sentiment to many of the images that didn't make the short list. Less than a day to go in the voting.

Next round, the poll will start earlier and run a little longer.
