On Silhouettes Through Windows challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

ws1967: most of the pics are no shots of silhouettes through a window (curtain)

On DSCN0404 photo in betamihai's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Apparently you got the first place by cheating. I got a commplaint that you have multiple accounts. As result I decided to disqualify your image and to ban you from my challenges. Your behavior is a shame for your country (which by the way happens to be mine too).

On View from the top - Water challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alexis: Would the photo have to be taken from an air plane or would other "aerial" devices be OK like a glider, parachute etc...

Any aircraft in flight would be ok.

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

PaulChapman: Since when have gliders had engines?

Motorgliders do have engines and are accepted in the challenge. Some gliders have auxiliary engines (piston, jet, electrical). There is already a DG 808 motorglider in the challenge.

In reply to:

Ron Somerville: I like 4th place photo, but the rules say basic pp.

His description clearly reads: " Removed background replaced with black sky, ..."

Hmmm.

I didn't noticed it - although I don't like to disqualify entries during or after the voting phase, now is gone.

On Battle of Britain challenge (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

Turbo Hampster: My pic was disqualified for being a later mk Spit than what they had in the B.O.B as it had a four blade prop. Which is fair enough...

But how come there are 3 other pics in here that also feature later spits with 4 bladed props that weren't disqualified.
Seems a bit unfair?

All the pics that didn't comply with the rules were disqualified (23 in total) - if you see any other left please let me know.

On View from the top - Clouds challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

KambizSh: Does the picture have to be from within the aircraft, or just being above the clouds would be sufficient? I have a picture taken at the top of a mountain with clouds below. Would that qualify? Thx.

I'm sorry to disappoint you but this challenge is only for aviation lovers - the picture must be taken only from an aircraft in flight.

In reply to:

Coolhandchuck: Wow, do we have to be that technical? If so, there might not be entrants in this challenge.

The rules are very clear. I cannot accept any aircraft picture just for the simple reason that is an aircraft that was flying somewhere in the world during that period. Your Fi-156 image would have been welcome two weeks ago, in the "Oldies but Goldies" challenge.
Thank you for understanding.

On Sony NEX-6 Hands-on Preview preview (229 comments in total)

What about the not-so-good performance of the electronic viewfinder in very low light. After some testing I realized that NEX-6 suffers from the same usual issues of the EVF - lag and graininess, that start to appear when it gets really dark. What makes things worse is the fact that in almost complete dark the EVF is not truly usable if you want to frame and shoot stars or other faintly lit subjects, like a luminous watch. The optical viewfinder is by far much better in such situations and there is a lot to improve to Sony's EVF until it could become a real competition to the OVF.

blosshapperter: 580+225g

I do know math and I carefully read the rules.
Read my notes "Total system weight approx. 805 g (in compliance with the "approximate 800g" requested by the rules."
The rules say approximate not maximum weight.

On Cockpits challenge (2 comments in total)

By definition, an aircraft canopy is the transparent enclosure over the cockpit of an aircraft.
As result I consider it as (a particular) part of the cockpit, as are the seats, dashboard, windshield and oher similar things.
Personally I don't see an issue with the canopies being present in this challenge, as they represent a view of the cockpit from the outside.
Best regards,

Alex
