In reply to:

fotoselect: Would it not be better to submit two pictures - Color + B.W. ?

Good idea. I'll create a challenge for that. I'll keep this one as is. Thanks

On At the Museum challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

corg902: I believe what you're describing is a diorama. Am I correct?

Diorama would be the word that succinctly describes this challenge. But only life size dioramas (not miniatures as the definition would allow)

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Can live humans (i.e., museum patrons) be in the picture?

I'd rather not, to keep the theme consistent. Thanks.

In reply to:

vbuhay: Could you make an exception for a Black and White - Tri-X film picture? I took this in one of the most memorable concerts I have ever attended. I took it with my very first camera a Vivitar 220 SL with a 200mm f3.5 lens in May of 1977. I processed the film, stored it for 36 years and just digitized the negatives this week.

Sure :)

In reply to:

JamesD28: By 400mm do you mean actual focal length or 35mm equivalent?

The 35mm equivalent. Updated rules to reflect that. Thanks

On If still-life objects had eyes challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve Throndson: Many of the entries so far - and also the host's sample photo - seem to contradict one of the challenge rules:

"The object portrayed in the image with the imaginary eyes, has to be a NON-LIVING OBJECT, i.e., a still-life object (no animals, humans, insects, and the like)"

And there are entries that do not have the explanatory note that the host asked for to explain the perspective.

So, will there be disqualifications?

Yes the subject can be a living thing.
I should have written the object's point of view that's being portrayed should be of a non living thing. Thanks.

Patience :)

My sample is the view the keyboard would have :)

JerryShots: Look, it's a bird! A plane!
No, it's only another "full set of rules" that went over the heads of the 'readers' (a euphemistic reference to be sure!).

So we are 'sposed to take a shot FROM THE PERSPECTIVE of a 'thing' in our lives...So we are to show what the thing would see, if it had eyes...
So unfortunately EVERYTHING would fit if we just said "This is what my camera would have seen 'IF' it had eyes....
How special. A non-discriminatory challenge.
Again.

May I recommend Flickr?
On second thought, based on your recent activity it's best you sell your camera.

In reply to:

Jill Hancock: Disappointing that so many people have put in their first picture with a new camera when they're obviously already an accomplished photographer and not their genuine first attempts.

+1.

On My First WOW Image challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThanksForMemories: If ever there was a important reason to comment on a photo, this was it "My first WOW image" ! How do you expect people to vote with no personal emotion about why it was a WOW??? Yet not many people explained their personal experience about that wow factor. Disappointed.
AND disillusioned and cynical for the reason offered by Jill Hancock. Some people forget the reason for the challenges, it is the theme!

+1. That was the sole purpose of the challenge. My first WOW was of a flower close-up that was half out of focus with completely blown out background. Yet it was a wow.
