Hmm, some entrants have a strange definition of "very distinct"...

In reply to:

barb_s: Sorry to do this, but I got such an odd variety of entries, that I decided not to go through with the challenge. There were a couple of street art type photo's , not really still life. A few that were traditional still life's , a few that stretched the definition, and a few where you'd debate whether the net some objects were arranged on, or a plate that held fruit should be counted.

So, because there was already much discussion on day 2, I decided to end the challenge. I'll do a better job with a second version later on. Sometimes a simple rule set isn't a good rule set.

Again, I apologize,

Barb

And I just shot my would be entry (which may have also stretched the definition a little, but that's what definitions and boundaries are good for.. -- and I waited to see if you would dq the one entry slighty similar to mine). Well, still had fun.

Better luck with your next challenge!

maxola67: One more entity to disappear(together with mail).

There are more bullwhips made today than ever before; neither technologies or forms of communication ever vanish completely, they just get overshadowed by newer toys.

On photo some glasses in a row in the Editorial: The nature of glass challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

88SAL: Excellent work!! Try it in light field too?

Thank you!
Do you mean with a white background?
Not with an angle -- my original idea was an orthogonal shot, this was after i got that and was "fooling around" with the setup.
Best fitting example here (even the same technique to emphasize the edges): http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1017157792/photos/1157027/glasinglas?inalbum=glasses

My main aim with this one was to learn how to pronounce the edges of the glasses with a white, uh, edge against a dark background, as it is more difficult than dark edges against a white background (or at least I have far difficulties getting an acceptable result).
I'll try a similar shot with a white background in the future, but first I'll have to get some more ideas that need a similar setup -- I am somewhat lazy and prone to breaking the glasses, so I want to make it count.

pleytime: I don't understand how there are 100 entries that are 'unvoted' yet there are 1169 'votes'?

The difference is that YOU didn't cast any votes ;-)

In reply to:

bluemoonman: Great work & well deserved top spot but why the low votes?

It seems nearly every entry got at least 3 0.5 points...

In reply to:

Deleted pending purge: <INTER-AD> : If anyone plans on entering anything tiny and living, (such as insects, spiders, flowers, etc. which are outside of the scope in this challenge) you might like to save these for a challenge 'The World of Tiny' which will be hosted by RuthC in late April. Such entries might be suitable there.
:)

Just out of interest: what about things that were once part of living beings?
Seashells, feathers and so on? Of course, being too strict about this and you would also have to dq stuff made out of wood...
