I saw your entry, Nikki! I will comment on all the DOTY entries later today after they're all up...

However, your entry is quite spectacular!!!

I only posted my color entries here, because I (a) wanted to show the comparison between the color pictures with the b&w images, and (b) I worked diligently to keep the colors similar as I've not done anything like this before and was not certain how the b&w would come out if I had wide-ranging colors.

...also (c) I like the color pictures, and (d) I am not sure which I like better! LOL

Did you take more than what you put up for your DOTY entry?

I'm glad you liked my JFF... <3

thank you Suzanne, Yes I did take more I actually spent ages on this. I tried several different wallpapers too and took b&w pictures  to see which I liked better.
I didn't look at any entries before posting again, it's very difficult but I found in the first three rounds I'd look at entries then change what I was doing because I wanted to create something different. I didn't look in round 4 until I was ready to post and so I did the same thing this time too.

I might post some colour pictures after the judging has been done. I can't remember if it's OK to post pictures elsewhere, sometimes they say not to.

I didn't see anything from 2016 or in 2017 rules or the questions/comments that said we couldn't post pictures anywhere else. I've been posting my pictures here and on my Tumblr.

I think you can do what you'd like with your pictures.

I do give credit that they're from DOTY and suggest people go there to look at all the entries <3

I checked with he judges first and apparently you're not supposed to post anywhere else until the round ends. I think it's an unwritten rule but to be on the safe side I'll post my pictures on Tuesday unless round 6 is posted earlier.

Oops.

Congratulations Marie I see you made it through to round 6 too. I was dancing around the room (metaphorically) when I saw round 6 posted. Grease has to be one of my all time favourite films. Not only that I wasn't eliminated and surprisingly was in top 5 scores and had a favoured picture.

Well off to source some stuff for my diner. Looking forward to your JFF Suzanne and I'll post those pictures later if I get time.

Shh but I'm currently at work supervising homework club, everyone's quietly working so I thought I'd check out the forum. We're not allowed to go on Forums during the working hours.

Congratulations to you too.
Grease is also a favorite movie, I've seen it so many time.
I may have to rebuild my dinner a bit when I forgot two windows that did not seem to be in the drawing. I have found most of my needs. Now I hope for the best. I came to the 5th round last time.
Good luck Nikki

I've built out the diner and have been dreaming about the interior portion layouts, lol... So hopefully today I'll be filling out the interior and deciding on walls (inside and out). I hope to be decorating tomorrow and finalizing and taking pictures by Friday.

We'll see if I can keep to this schedule! LOL

I know your entries will be fantastic, Nikki and Marie! I can't wait to see them :D

Thank you Suzanne. It will be exciting and see how it goes, I mean everyone else who's left is great and I'm ... If I'm kidding this time, it's no disaster when I've been on longer than last year.
Nikki's restaurant is wonderful.

Thank you Suzanne, Marie and Anita, I'm happy you think it looks good. I am very anxious this time though as after I posted I noticed I'd left off some of the windows around the door so I know I will loos points for that. I'm not sure if it has the 'WOW' factor the judges look for, I got so hung up on Frosty Palace from Grease I couldn't think past it. That's the reason I out in the different levels. I also wanted to put in a serving hatch (not sure what other countries call this, it's were food is passed through from the kitchen to the diner). I couldn't find the right window for it and the stove with the 'take out window' was three tiles long and I only had two to work with. I also debated over the colour, i did it blue, then pink, then red and then ended up with what you see. As for the bar area I did that so many times, because I wanted that hatch in I couldn't find a look I liked, then I forgot to add the photo of that area. I also forgot to change the windows, I downloaded some then didn't use them. I actually found this round very stressful. LOL
I will post some pictures in my portfolio after the judging is done.

I can't wait to see what you girls have done!

Nikki - Just reading your post of what you went thru and all the turmoil you had over colors and design, game me stress! I don't know how you girls can stand the pressure, but I know you'll all do fantastic and move on to the next round!

It would be fantastic if a Cherry won!

How many rounds are there? And are there winners for each sims game or does that matter? And, sorry for so many questions, I've never heard of this kind of contest before so I'm intrigued. (Not that I would ever want to enter, but it might be fun to do a JFF entry for myself for the challenge.)

There are 9 rounds, both Marie and I have got through to round 7, not sure what my score is yet but I did get a favourite picture so i picked up a couple extra points there.
