I'd love to Marcia...your work is lovely, but I have to reserve votes at this point for trading with people who don't yet have even one image qualified. I am sending out another email to friends and family requesting help and if their votes give me some leeway not to have to trade, then I may be able to start voting for some second images.
Thanks for your vote on Into the Unknown!
And do let us know how you are managing to get enough votes to try for a second entry!

can you help me get more too, and will help u in return
just message me when u get more to help me then i can help u too
Thanks to many friends not in the contest that have voted for my work, people in the contest that have helped me tremendously, and busting my fanny off in vote trade sites on FB, I still have some votes left to trade here on FAA...and still would like to get more votes on my entry because I have been told it's wise to have a good buffer above and beyond the 250 requirement.
Please let me know if you like my entry and would like to trade votes.
Thank you and good luck!
PS Just a word to the wise...something I learned during this process: In threads where people just post their links and then vote for everyone above...well...sometimes that works, but I found that often those above did not check back and return your vote. That then leaves you with less votes to cast...when many who are in the same shoes as you, will only vote in a trade with you. I found it better to agree to trade upfront..not just vote and hope they reciprocate. Just my experience for whatever that's worth. Also, be sure you do "check" the "please notify me by email" box in the threads where you have posted for votes and check back to see if your vote was reciprocated. I have seen people post that they'd like to exchange votes, but then they never come back when I post that I'd be glad to do so with them.
If you want to get to 250 I'd encourage you to bite the bullet and do the vote trade sites on FB...World Vote Exchange or some such. It's nuts and hectic, but you can get the votes...just clean up your FB apps later, lol!
Voted #13 on your beautiful photo! Thank you and good luck to you!!!
PS I can only vote on one photo for each person...(and am only asking for one vote for my main entry) so I voted for your top entry...the sunset.
You might want to consider just promoting one entry...until you get it over the 250 mark anyway. Unless you have a source of votes apart from FAA members. I was advised to do this and now I understand why...because with only 100 votes allotted to each of us to cast, we can help more people by only voting for one image per person.
