  • Hi dbinkc, The high level of vote manipulation which occurred in this 'Yellow' Challenge is (fortunately) rare. As a host I keep a close eye on the voting patterns during each week's challenge. ...
  • Commented on Forced Perspective challenge

    Tomorrow the challenge goes into the voting stage. You'll be able to vote for the entries then. Stars will appear beneath each entry, and you choose from 1/2 star if the shot doesn't meet the theme...

  • Commented on Yellow on yellow in the Shades of Yellow in Nature challenge

    A great capture of a hoverfly on your little yellow flower, beautifully sharp with interesting contrast and colours. See my message at the bottom of the challenge page. Ruth

  • Commented on TWINS in the Shades of Yellow in Nature challenge

    This is a lovely capture of Asiatic lilies, and really 'pops' on the page. Please read my sad and frustrating note at the bottom of the challenge page. Ruth

  • Commented on Leaves and Stream in the Shades of Yellow in Nature challenge

    This is a beautiful picture of warm shades of yellow in autumn. A great capture, which would have pleased you very much.
    Please read my message beneath the challenge. Ruth :-)

  • It is with sadness and frustration that this week's 'Shades of Yellow in Nature' challenge has been hit with more than ten vote manipulators, a day before the results are announced. These ...
  • Commented on Shades of Yellow in Nature challenge

    It is with sadness and frustration that I write to you that this week's challenge has been hit with more than ten vote manipulators, a day before the results are announced. These 'sandbaggers' have...

  • Commented on Shades of Yellow in Nature challenge

    I'm sorry to report that I have had to disqualify two entries from a member who has manipulated the voting in his/her favour, by a family member, friend, or a multiple account, giving his/her...

  • This is not a broken antenna, but its natural 'hinged' form.

  • Commented on F-16 in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    This is no ordinary shot of a plane in the air! It's a very unique capture by you, alex326, of an F-16, with incredible sharpness and detail. We on the ground can only admire your courage and skill...

  • Commented on Bull Ant in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, PERCY2, on placing third in this weekly challenge. This is a fantastic capture of a bull ant, with its 'don't mess with me' mandibles, and amazing detail in its hairy head and...

  • Commented on A Break in the Storm in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, qhenson, on achieving second place in this weekly challenge. The landscape of Yosemite Valley is quite stunning in its sheer magnificence, and you have captured this beautifully....

    Congratulations, Philip Lanoue on your excellent win in this 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. This picture has been a clear front runner throughout the voting period. It's a stunning capture...

  • Commented on Multi-Coloured Leaves challenge

    So far, I've had to disqualify 20 out of the 45 entries received. The greatest majority of these DQ's are because the leaves are autumn-toned, and from deciduous trees or vines. Their leaves are...

  • I've just looked in your gallery, and in my opinion, the DQ'd entry does NOT meet the host's requirements. 'The body of water and the bridge should have about the same prominence. I'm looking for...

  • Commented on Young rider in the Sport Action challenge

    I love her facial expression. Absolute concentration, and an excellent capture by you in that split second. Ruth :-)

    Hi chrisby,
    In this challenge, you may have one leaf, or two or more leaves in each entry.
    Ruth :-)
