Thanks for keeping this contest away from all the social networks. It seems as if that’s the most insidious form of current data mining that there is.

Only one issue I have with this contest… it’s skewed towards those that are on Facebook, which I am not. So it’s basically a survey as to how many are reading Photography Bay on Facebook. Sorry to be cynical but thats the way it looks to me from the G+ side.

Would love to win this. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
