The last two photography contests have had many fewer entries than the first several -- campsite, 6; homemade gear only 3 so far.
Is interest intrinsically waning, or are there other reason(s), for example:
onset of hiking/backpacking season leaves little time for posting photographs;
not many people have photos for the last two categories;
people feeling need for sabbatical from the contests;
Someone mentioned that he would like to see more pictures of fauna (critters), and a suggestion that this category be split into insects and other was favorably received.
What to do?
[Confession: I love the pics, but have not posted any because I need a simple tutorial on how to do it. Duh.]
