  • LeeStar, I feel your pain. If the host simplifies the challenge to a bog-standard, lowest common denominator subject, then it  becomes less of a 'challenge', and more a collection of happy snaps. ...
  • Commented on An Inanimate Object challenge

    I agree. There are many entries where there is more than one inanimate object as the subject. The title clearly states: 'An Inanimate Object'.

  • Commented on Cenote Rays in the Holes in Nature challenge

    Congratulations, alexsolich, on placing third in this challenge, as well as second. This is a wonderful mystical picture which few of us will have the opportunity to see first-hand. The clarity of...

  • Commented on Barracuda School in the Holes in Nature challenge

    This is an amazing picture, alexsolich, and it deserves second place in this 'Holes in Nature' challenge. When I wrote the challenge theme, I couldn't have imagined receiving an entry such as this,...

  • Commented on A View Through The Arch in the Holes in Nature challenge

    Congratulations, steveperry, on first place in the 'Holes in Nature' challenge. This is a very effective capture of this arch in the Valley of Fire. We see a picture within a picture: the beautiful...

  • Commented on Anzac in the An Image challenge

    Lest we forget. RuthC.

  • Commented on Easter Sunday Moon in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    I really liked your picture of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour, and was disappointed that it didn't do much, much better in the challenge. It would certainly have done so if not for the low-life...

  • Commented on Iridescent Beetle in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Stunning, as always, PERCY2. Ruth :-)

  • Commented on Incoming in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Great action shot, gfa5775, and deserves a top place here in the weekly challenge. Who needs a tripod when you have a railing to lean on? And your umbrella would have turned inside out if the...

  • Commented on Slinging Steel in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    This was a very popular picture achieving second place in this weekly challenge. Great action and drama in your capture, Steel City. Ruth :-)

  • Commented on Amazing Sky in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Another beautiful capture, ozziebadger, deserving first place in this challenge, from a beautiful part of 'paradise', (or just south of there). Fantastic colours and warmth in the whole picture....

  • There is no regulation size required for the challenge entries. A number of hosts require a size limit such as 1,600px on the longer side of the entry, but some hosts have no restriction at all. It ...
  • Commented on Babie's day out! challenge

    The title of this challenge is somewhat confusing to me.
    1. Who is 'Babie'?
    2. Do you mean ''Baby's Day Out'', or ''Babies' Day Out'' or someone called Babie having a day out?
    The much maligned...

  • This is an excellent picture of reeds in calm water, and IMO should have place much higher in the challenge. This capture is exactly what I suggested in the challenge theme, which you actually...

  • Commented on Goshen Pond in the Reflections in Calm Waters challenge

    Congratulations, clemcoz, on second place in the 'Reflections in Calm Waters' challenge. Your peaceful capture of Goshen Pond is really beautiful, with your signature soft pastel landscape colours,...

  • Commented on Calm Reflections in the Reflections in Calm Waters challenge

    Congratulations, ozziebadger, on coming first in this 'Reflections in Calm Waters' challenge, also in meeting the theme of the challenge, which many other entries failed to do. This is a very...

  • No.

  • Hi Steve, Short answer: yes it's the host's duty to DQ. Occasionally entries slip under the radar, or members alert the host through complaints that entries do not meet the rules. However, it isn't ...
  • What an incredibly rude, nasty comment to make of this elderly lady! I wonder if folks will criticise your 'smile lines' when you reach 92? I see this picture showing an interesting depth of...

  • Commented on Am I a Bee. in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    No, I'm a hoverfly. I feed on nectar and pollen, but don't live in a hive, and I can't sting or bite. Ruth
