What is Bernard909's problem?
Apr 1, 2011

Surely a photographic challenge is about photography?

What is this guys hang-up with rules?

I understand we need rules but surely it's the picture we should be looking at?

I spent hours choosing the 'right' picture for his zoo challenge only to come home and find the following email;

has been disqualified from the challenge called Zoo for the following reason:

Pictures aspect ratio must be 2:3 or 4:3 or 16:9 or 1:1 and 1600 pixels on the largest side (1% tolerance) Actually it's 2944

WTF? Now the challenge is full and so I cannot submit my picture.

I am quite a busy man and I enter these challenges for FUN, that's FUN.

I didn't have time to look at the rules and chop my picture around so it fits the "aspect ratio" or chop the size down to fit into 1600 pixels (with a 1% tolerance!).

To be honest, after spending so long finding what I considered to be the right picture for the challenge, I didn't even have time to read the rules fully, (which is why I fell foul of them), but really? Lets get real, it is a photography challenge not a read the rules with a 1% tolerance challenge!

Please dont take the fun out of these challenges by being so anal about aspect ratios with or without 1% tolerances. There is no prize money, no entry fee it is for FUN, a PHOTOGRAPHY challenge for FUN!

Rant over, I thank you.
