jeffbottman: Any chance to increase number of entries allowed?

I'll up it to 60 tomorrow and at the same time DQ any entries that are still not "square" . I've given everyone a few days to replace their entries with the correct size images and I see a couple that have not withdrawn. I'll be opening it up at this time Friday.

I've sent notes to everyone that submitted non square photo's. I give the option to withdraw and re-enter , and will DQ any that are not replaced in a couple of days.

What a catch. I've wondered about that Sigma lens. It looks like a winner. As does your picture!

BearLeeAble: it says my picture date ( dec 15 ) is invalid

This challenge had no date restriction. Were you trying to enter this challenge or a different challenge that had a date restriction in the rules?

This is amazing. I never would have thought the bird would have it's head in this position as it catches a fish. Spectacular capture!

On challenge Holiday (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

techjedi: Not sure if this needs clarification for the challenge poster, but some European countries consider "holiday" to mean vacation. Was this challenge supposed to be about holiday celebrations like Christmas, Hannukah, etc or about vacation photos? Or is it open for all these meanings?

I'll keep that in mind then, thank you. I try not to use a "word" that can be thought of in very different ways. Holiday may be one of the exceptions. Thanks to you both, I now understand :)

The series is called " Photos depicting One Word (No rule restrictions in this series)".

Each challenge is about "the entrant's view" of the word.

The idea here is to have an all inclusive set of challenges.

Entrants and voters so far have not needed more guidelines than that.

Bhimaprasad Maiti: There are only 10 views. Perhaps it has no impact on ratings.Why then it is shown

I am pretty sure the views are not counted during voting phase, just afterwards, so it is relevant.

This series of challenges is wide open. For those voting, I hope they understand the broader viewpoint and that the word "Holiday" does not always refer to the Christmas type of holiday.
