  • Commented on My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Not angry, but as the host of this weekly challenge I am responsible for ensuring that all entries comply with the rules. This 'My Best Photo of the Week' has had a number of similar predecessors...

  • This is a wonderful picture of two pelicans in flight, Chuck_FL, and you were very fortunate to capture them in this way. Wouldn't you think there was enough sky for the two of them to have their...

  • Congratulations, rayanazhari, on coming second in this weekly challenge with your superb capture of the Poppy Memorial at King's Cross Station. You have achieved remarkable clarity and definition...

    Congratulations, mooray, on your outstanding win in this 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. This excellent picture has been leading the voting all week, and with good reason. You've captured a...

  • If you look at your Profile, you'll see two headings: Forums, and Comments. You should be able to find out through one of these what you were reading and contributing to before. Happy hunting. Ruth
  • Commented on Wrapped in Love in the mother & baby challenge

    A beautiful capture which will provide beautiful memories.

  • Commented on Life in a Barren Land challenge

    Folks, I've received a small number of entries where there is some evidence of human life, and also entries where there is no evidence of life whatsoever.
    I've decided to accept these entries, and...

  • In a word, yes. You can try voting for your entry, but you'll get a red message on your screen, saying: "Sorry, you cannot vote for your entry" Ruth
  • And any snow scenes in Australia during December/January will be disqualified because the entrant has fudged the capture date! :-) Ruth
  • Jim, with all respect to your expertise as a market researcher, it is a well-known fact that bias will inevitably show up when a sample is too small or too selective, and does not represent ...
  • Commented on Red Leaf in the One Red Leaf challenge

    This was one of my favourite entries in this challenge, bcys1961, and I had thought it would have placed better. The colours of the new fern frond are beautiful, contrasting sharply with the greens...

  • Commented on Frost in the One Red Leaf challenge

    Congratulations, Jaap Coorens, on coming fourth in the 'One Red Leaf' challenge, with your frosty red leaf. The leaf appears to be sugar-coated, while the bright backlighting has enhanced the...

  • Commented on Red autumn leaf of a mountain ash in the One Red Leaf challenge

    This is a beautiful example of a red leaf, Nik2, and I like the way you have laid it out as a botanical specimen to be viewed in all its intricate details. While living in Japan many years ago, my...

  • Commented on Maple Rain in the One Red Leaf challenge

    Congratulations, mjdundee, on second place in the 'One Red Leaf' challenge. I really like the interesting contrast between the sharp serrations on the maple leaf and the silky-smooth drop of water...

  • Commented on REFLECTION - RED MAPLE in the One Red Leaf challenge

    Congratulations, Tom Lusk, on your win in this 'One Red Leaf' Challenge. The simplicity of your capture is the essence of its beauty, in my opinion. The redness of the maple leaf with its...

  • As the current host of 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenges, I can assure everyone that entries come from all walks of life, and all subjects are accepted, (within the family-friendly ...
  • Hi Brad, The simple answer to your size question is, that 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 ...
  • A stunning capture!

  • Commented on Cormorant taking off in the It flies!!! challenge

    What a wonderful capture! Everything is just right; colour, clarity, sharpness, and light. You posed the three sitting cormorants perfectly, watching the flyer showing them how it's done!...

  • Congratulations, The Mick, on achieving a well-deserved third place in this challenge. This is a really beautiful picture, with the soft misty light of early morning. I really like the autumn tones...
