db.: Interesting title! May one "challenge" you to write a better one...?
Thank you for your help but I do not want to win challenges, I just want to challenge myself. Have a nice day db.
Just looking at your photo gallery I know you would win on all grounds. I am much weaker than you think.
By standing on the Shoulders of Giants: This is a brilliant contextual photo. It's a brilliant non statement, which feels more like an observation. I would interprete it as an issue which is supposed to be private is unfortunately out in the open, and the broken toilet implies that the solution is still in limbo. Not only that the people who's responsible appears to have distanced themselves from it and it looks abandoned. Thanks Mario.
That takes a lot of balls (or clit) to produce challenges like yours. Keep on challenging me.Mario
jaykumarr: great shot
Thank you jaykumarr, and have a nice day.Mario
RuthC: I really like the simplicity of this image, MarioSS, and it has earned a well-deserved third place in this three-colour challenge. You have used soft pastels to emphasise the peaceful nature of this scene on a lake, with its reflected white clouds. Beautiful, and well-spotted.Ruth :-)
Thank you RuthC, and have a nice day.Mario
cits: Jacks...the kid toy..
No! upuaut was on the right path.
upuaut: lighthouses and skies?
Robert Kempen: stunning shot - beautiful 'sunstar'
again, I am shocked by some of the low scores
Thank you Robert, and have a nice day.Mario
cjf2: This was my top placed picture. I suppose the photographer is a little small in the shot but overall it was very abstract and interesting.
Thank you cjf2. You have a very nice photo gallery. Keep on making images.
Nice and well-lit shot cjf2.
MarioSS: I like these Conceptual Challenges.
Hello Andy Finday,Sorry, I do not know the meaning of sock-poppet but I guess it is not very nice! I am kind of old and I tend to repeat myself very often. Unfortunately it will not get better with time.Have a nice day,Mario
I like these Conceptual Challenges.
Bren Dyer: Well done on winning this challenge, and congratulations on the win with 2 of the random items listed...well done...BrenCH
Thank you Bren and have a nice day.Mario
I like these conceptual challenges.
Shooter036: As the host of the challenge, I'd say that this is one of the best from the entire pool.P.S. : Every time a challenge that was hosted by me, finishes, I will try to make a comment like this to the entries, that I personally felt were the best of the series, and if I had voted, I would have given 4.5 stars to these images.
Thank you Shooter036.
jbf: I stopped to look at this photo because it has a richness to the colors/tonality that I like. I can't describe it better than that. The more I looked at the photo, the more I liked it. The ghostly faces in the train windows staring at the worker woman as they leave her at the empty station tells a poignant story. I could be wrong about the story. There could be a city and a crowd of people right behind her. The train could be backing up for all I know. That's the beauty of being the photographer and getting to choose what to put in the frame and when to push the button. Nice job creating an image that gets better the more time you spend with it.
Hello jbf,I have good memories of Romania. It's a great place for a photographer.Have a nice day,Mario
JerryShots: So which camera took this shot? The one listed above (D610) or the one you said it was below (It is a modified full spectrum Nikon D5500 by Kolari Vision)?
Sorry I could rate your photo higher in this challenge. Great result considering... ;)
The background is made with a D610 and the foreground is made with a modified D5500 (its a composite image).
