Is it hard to follow simple challenge rules?
Check this challenge( http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=6414 ). It should be about star trails and planets, but people still submitted moon shots. Do you expect winning a challenge with a photo that is not what is asked? Or are you so eager to show your photos, that you will just submit it and say: "Meh, close enough."
I do not like to see good shots and give them half a star because it does not follow the directions.
