Just 5 will make the final round, and one among them will be the new Poster of the Month.

Who will the new Poster of the Month be, and who will the elite 5 be? We will find out in the course of the next week!

All contestants, please look at How the scores work ! This explains what the differents rounds are, and how the scores are calculated.





Expert Picks for the Picture Round



The scores of the very first round, "Picture Round" will be out by Thursday afternoon EST.

As a prelude to the round, wongqks ,former Poster of the Month,who has won most of the rounds he participated in, and probably knows what the judges are looking for, will give his commentary on whom to expect to score highly in the Picture Round.

He will "review" each picture, and given it a rating out of 4, with a brief comment for each picture. These do NOT count as scores, but could give us an idea about what to expect in the Picture Round, the day after tommorow.He will also give his top 5 for the Picture Round.

So look for the 'expert picks' tommorow, Wednesday afternoon EST!


__________________________________________________




In order to keep the suspense and excitement alive to myself, I have decided to check the scores myself just a few seconds before I post the averages. So I basically will find out the scores with you guys.

Ok the judges have sent in their scores. I dont know yet, how each of you have done (and I dont intend to check until Thursday, along with you) , but I wish you all the best of luck! Let's see who they've chosen.

Wongqks's picks should be posted at around 12:30 PM EST Wednesday.

PREVIEW TO THE PICTURE ROUND



I'd like to thank former POM, wongqks for taking time to review this pictures. All these ratings are given out of a maximum possible of 4 (* * * * ). If you've recieved a low rating, please don't get disillusioned, as wongqks seems tough to please And remember, these ratings have NO effect on the actual scores that will be posted tommorow. These is just to give you an idea who we could possibly, expect to do well. The last time this was tried in POM 4th Edition (which was won by none other than our commentator wongqks), the picks of the commentator, and myself went completely wrong Nevertheless, without further adieu, here are his comments
I'd like to state, that for the sake of fairness, but the judges, and wongqks, saw the entries NUMBERED and not with your names


I♥Lindsay



* *



An ‘ok’ choice, but not so much in originality





___________________________________________






!!!—Dz--!!





* * 1/2





Original, but may not convey too much to the judges.




___________________________________________






tennislover



* *




Ok choice. Could be more original






___________________________________________






Pengwin




* * 1/2




One of the better ones






___________________________________________






timray




* * *



Funny pic. Good choice




___________________________________________





KoolManSteven




* *




The choice is ok, but does not relate to anything




___________________________________________







hingis-seles




* 1/2




I’ve seen it a million times, too unoriginal




___________________________________________





Bennyboy




* * *




A touching portrait, one of the better entries





___________________________________________






maryam619




* *




Does not relate to me in anyway.





___________________________________________






Sam L




* * * 1/2




Good choice, the best of the round




___________________________________________






AlexSydney




* *




This is an ok choice. Fair in originality.





___________________________________________





cdpoulin1



* * 1/2




Good picture which captures expressions nicely





___________________________________________






---Benny---




* *



This entry is just about ok.





___________________________________________

WHO'S IN THE TOP 5?




Wongqks shares his top 5 for the picture round :





1. Sam L





2. Bennyboy





3. timray





4. Pengwin





5. cdpoulin1






_________________________________________________________________










My personal top 5




Ok I haven't seen the scores as yet, and dont know who's scored what, but if it were upto me, I these would be my picks :





1. timray


A unique picture, which the judges might or might not like. It is definitely eye-catching.






2. Sam L


I'd say that the this pic is most likely going to win the picture round. It has great visuality, and is absolute eyecandy.






3. Bennyboy



This picture nicely captures the glint in the eye of the character. I'd say this is likely to do well too.






4. hingis-seles



Nice picture, with great visual effect.






5. cdpoulin1



This is a moving picture. Good choice
