On Friends in the Rough Sea challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

merops: Fantastic photo, but for me it doesn't exemplify 'rough sea'. The title and posture of the two guys is quite calm.

Thank you for your comments.
The strenght of this shot is in the pattern and the repetition (the roughness), not in the hight of the waves. Picture of a pattern could be monotonous without a breack in the patern (the friends). This are my thoughts...
Thank you for your time to view and comment, it is appreciated.

santamonica812: You did a great job capturing a series of waves. The pattern turns this into a sort of graphic image. Very cool . . . I wish you had included location info. :-)

Thank you for your comments. It is very rewarding to hear your thoughts. Yes, the strenght of this shot is in the pattern and the repetition, not in the hight of the waves.
The place is the beach of Mount Maunganui, Tauranga, New Zealand. Thank you for your time, it is appreciated.

Compulsory voting by the PARTICIPANTS in a challenge is an invitation to underrate others and consequently have a better chance to win. This is common knowledge and should not be allowed .

This messy challenge needs decisions and actions to be taken by the host. Joe Pineapples shows one way of doing this.

On Photography in a Strictly Prohibited place challenge (16 comments in total)

I think we, the members and the host need to pay more attention to details. We have to submit pictures of some photographers who ARE taking pictures......

kabzamalov: Can somebody suggest something more stupid then compulsory voting against yourself?

Thank you jetals, I appreciate and will follow your advice. Still compulsory voting of participants remains an anachronism. I am trying to be polite...
