"Submit a photo of a single non-motorised farm machine or farm workshop tool of days gone by."
I do not think this entry is valid, I do not know any farmers who farmed bricks.
I do not think this entry is valid.
Questionable entry, but I do not think it's valid.
In my area we see similar images to this, but do I take the shot....no. This is truly an inspirational shot from it's simplicity of subject to the fantastic colour capture. Thanks, now bring on winter, well we will enjoy summer first me thinks!!!
jetals: Should the title be "Windy"?
vgabor:Careful, Wndy could be my son’s way of texting WedNesDaY - LOL
RuthC: I really liked this photo. It captures the essence of the challenge beautifully, with its warm colours and details. I can smell the fresh bread from here!
Thanks Ruth for your kind words and thanks to all who took the time to vote.
OldArrow: Thanks, all! Some extraordinary works in this one.Congrats to the Winners!
I agree Tim A2, there are many excellent entries, from start to finish in this Challenge and all who submitted should be proud of their entries.The voting on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. Many excellent images given 6, 7, 8 votes of 0.5 when they are clearly within Old Arrow’s Challenge requests. It isn’t fair to any of them.I hope this is not going to be a trend!!!!
Bill Foz: that's called a heliconia
ps nice photo
Thanks for the info Bill. Congratulations on 46th place in a tough Challenge.
I was DQ’d for proper reason by vqueen in the ‘Red Flower’ Challenge because of entrant stupidity!!!I am now reviewing the entries to cast my votes in this Challenge and I am having some problems. To my eye anyway, many of the Macro submissions are lost to me in any sort of detail. The entries in question are just appealing to the entrant, I believe.Am I wrong in this train of thought or are others troubled by the closeness of many Macro shots, not just in this Challenge but in many others that accommodate the inclusion of Macro images?Thanks all ~ Kipper
Buzz Lightyear: When will Dpreview hosts learn that any number over 100 entrants is just too many photos to fairly judge! I pray for the day that challenges over 100 allowed entries would be forbidden by Dpreview admin. Fat chance -- I know.
Totally agree - therefore, no entry and no votes.
As I said to the person who provided the ‘Bottlebrush’ submission, yours is also another very interesting looking plant. After the Challenge results are announced, could you please provide the plant’s botanical name and its country of origin, if possible?Thanks ~ Kipper.

Just finished posting to some of the entrants in your latest Challenge – ‘The picture that could never be, and its source’ and am one of those who hope you run it again.Having said that, I tried to find the link that you posted for this your latest Challenge – ‘uncommon still life II’ @ http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=7505 as you suggested and couldn’t find it.Can you help please, as I would like to think outside the box and provide a decent entry.
Thanks ~ Kipper
Great concept Jill, very similar to Vitto’s, with the two original pictures following the desired finished lines.Thanks ~ Kipper
Vitto:If Lext123 repeats this Challenge, as I and some others have suggested, then I will use your submission as an example of how to do it. Two shots with similar lines to aid in the final work, simple and very effective, very well done.Cheers to you ~ Kipper
Carlos:Your submission took time to grow on me and in the end it was my second choice. I really appreciate the reveal as to how you progressed to the finished work. Thanks for this “Story” of a submission.Cheers ~ KipperPs – I really liked the original eye colour – for what it’s worth.
