On challenge Sony mirrorles cameras (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

fzrTom: Are A7 + LA-EA4 adapter allowed in this challenge ?

That would be a bit odd situation but still we are considering a mirrorless camera body, so you should be fine.

In reply to:

lightgrabber: I'm rather new to challenges so I hope you'll bear with me. I'm looking at some of the entries and, while they show shutter speed, f-stop etc. I can't seem to find the type of camera specified is this available somewhere?

Also. the lightbox feature on the side looks like a great idea, but I can't figure out how to use it.

During the upload and voting phases of the challenges, the camera types and the user names are hidden, to avoid the deformation of the voting (i.e. people giving good or bad votes to a specific camera or user). After the voting phase is finished, during the showcase phase, all the hiden details will be visible.
The lightbox usage is fairly simple, you hover the mouse over the picture and in the menu that apppears you click on the "Add to lightbox" button.

ak1981: what about SLT? it's allow?

Unfortunately, the SLTs are not included in the scope of this challenge, as they have a translucent mirror.

In reply to:

A620er: Is this purely for the Alpha branded cameras or does NEX brand qualify also, please?

Al the NEX series cameras are welcome (they are part of the Alpha family anyway).

In reply to:

Bing Chow: Is stitching considered a composite? Or do you mean multiple exposures or sky replacements?

Stitching to create a panorama is fine.
Replacing parts of the picture or adding elements from other pictures is not accepted.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Your sample picture has TWO guitars. Is it acceptable to include more than one guitar in the entry?

You can have as many as you want :)

On challenge Drones (4 comments in total)

The challenge is open for human made flying drones / UAVs. Many of us are using them to take pictures, different other jobs or just for fun. I don't think that the actual bees can take any picture.
"An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, and also referred to as an unpiloted aerial vehicle and a remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard." - Wikipedia

On challenge Airman portrait (1 comment in total)

"A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer." - Wikipedia

On challenge Classic fighters (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: I see "savonie" has been busy trying to discredit some of the entries that are "training" aircraft, rather than official "fighter" planes. However, he (or she) has not even made comment on a few entries that are WW I trainers, or a couple that could be trainers, but are not identified - or identifiable - by just what can be seen in the photo. Perhaps it would be helpful if the real host makes a ruling here. Are military training aircraft allowed in this challenge?

Unfortunately the trainers were not allowed to this challenge and were disqualiffied, along bombers and cargo aircraft. Too bad that a lot of real fighters from different countries are missing.

In reply to:

Jack Sofield: You deleted my entry because you said it did not have the 1400 pixels on the long side. The rule was "at least 1400 pixels on long side." Mine had 1600. Why the disqualification?
Jack Sofield

I apologize for the inadvertence - the picture is back int challenge.

On photo F-16 in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Alex: great shot. Whatever aircraft you were flying in to take this photo must have had a clean windshield!

Thank you Buzz. It was another F-16 and unfortunately the canopy was not as clean as I would liked to be. Also, I missed my 30mm prime that day, along with my beloved polarized filter.

In reply to:

RuthC: 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 to be up there in the blue skies, flying an equally speedy jet, AND taking superb photos at the same time! A fabulous picture, and deserving of a top place in this weekly challenge. Ruth :-)

Thank you Ruth, you are so kind as usual.
Best regards,

Alex

In reply to:

FrankS009: My photo was disqualified because the pilot, pictured loading the plane herself with supplies for delivery to a remote location, did not wear a uniform. Bush pilots seldom do, especially in the heat of July. The pilot pictured is also owner of the freight company to whom the Beaver belongs.

As for the crew not being the central focus, I think loading the plane is a story that includes both crew and aircraft.

F.

In the lower part of the image, underneath the EXIF information, on the right side, there is a "Withdraw" button. It's your call to use it during any phase of a challenge upload/voting/showcasing.

You have always the option to withdraw it yourself. The only thing I can do is to disqualify an image (if is not compliant with the rules of the challenge). You provided an explanation and I accepted that, cancelling the DQ.
