Alrighty! Second place (for now) goes to me
AND MY FRIENDS

Of the two contests open at the time, I liked Heart of Iron best because Hearts and Unicorns sounded a little too cutesy for me. So, I looked over my Hipstamatic iPhotos and selected one to use. The main reason I liked this one was because of the mystery of a door with hinges and no handle . . . a door going nowhere.
Later I realized that the pipes were a more promenent "going nowhere" feature and because the theme was Heart of Iron - the pipes fit that, too.
When I entered The Big Hipstamatic Show, Heart of Iron → "Because love isn't always pretty," I knew that I couldn't win (the leader at that time had over a thousand votes and I only had several hundred Facebook friends who wouldn't all vote anyway.)

Current #1 with1412 votes and 4 days left at the time (7 hrs. now)
#2 at the time I entered (now #3 with 401 votes and 12 hrs. left)
But I thought I might be able to get close to the top five (because the two in 4th and 5th place had very few votes.)

#4 and #5 st the time I entered with less than 200 votes and similar amount of time left as mine
Boy, did I ever underestimate my Facebook and Twitter friends. all I had to do was ask them to vote and VOTE THEY DID - to the tune of over 500 votes the last count I had.
Let me thank you all here since I couldn't get a record of who all voted. I found some of them, but not all. So
THANK YOU • THANK YOU • THANK YOU
Unfortunately my print ended while folks were still trying to vote. I learned many things by jumping head first into this contest. One, you probably should go in nearer the end of the contest which in this case is Feb 14th. Many other "fly by the seat of your pants" types could easily do what I did and pass me right on by before the contest ends.
Like one of these newly entered prints:
It was a great advdenture for me and I highly recommend it. In fact, why don't you heed my advice and enter one of your Hipstamatic prints later in the contest, message all your friends and out-do my #2 rank and even that #1 ranked print. You know you have the friends to do it!
And if you don't have an iPhone or Hipstamatic app,get with it and . . .
GET ONE NOW!!!
(You know you want it.)
