What an interesting photo effect - I'm glad I took a look to vote here because this is a special lens and the results entered are unique.

I wish good luck to all who entered this challenge. Many interesting views of "quiet" here. I hope the commentary below does not distract those who enjoy viewing and voting.

Thank you all in advance.

I All were creative in their own ways. This was in my top 2 - I love your expressions, and I'm guessing this was more difficult to position successfully, and I love the way it came out. It's great!!!

On Birds in natural settings - No Canon or Nikon equipment challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

carloduro: "Show the Nikon-Canon users what other brands can do"?
They can do more or less the same things.
Only, I thought this kind of "revenges" were out of date after kindergarten.

Revenge is not the intent. This series was a response to another series. It was meant to give the folks who felt excluded from the Canon -Nikon challenges a place to enter and showcase other camera brands. The series is now stopped since people like you who didn't complain about the exclusive Canon Nikon Only challenges are now misinterpreting what it was for.

Bhimaprasad Maiti: I congratulate barb_s for this Challenge theme but I have a little bit of frustration when I find the quality of viewers & voters to this Challenge programme when compared to the Poster's contribution to various Camera and Lens forums in DPR

I really don't understand your comment.

I live the story behind this. thanks.

Well done!!! I think street photography is really a delicate balance - and you did it. I like the way the lighting drags my focus through the croud.

Congrats on the win!

Jerlad: The picture here :

http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=916324&View=NewFirst&Rows=25

is a stolen one by nivethanavenugopalan.

The original is from JUSTIN BATTLES.
Since nivethanavenugopalan has already won 2 challenges with stolen pictures and made some good places with other stolen picture, I suppose this one is not his work either ...

RuthC has already banned him from her challenges.

I have DQ'd that photo.

Did you try uploading to your gallery first? If uploading to your gallery gives you a quota limit, maybe you need to delete some photo's to have room or contact DPR about it. It's not challenge related.

On B/W Adult Male Portrait - NO Canon or Nikon equipment challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

JeanPierre Martel: Why most entries are so pixilated?

I've withdraw from this challenge because the uploaded image was too much different from the original. As if the uploaded image was resampled to a lower resolution one.

Upload to your gallery - if it's still showing some issue to you - contact DPR.

walkaround: Excluding people based on their camera brand? And I thought challenges requiring borders were bad...

I've opened a poll in the challenge forum to see what people think in general of the 2 series.

Have't you noticed there is was a lot of interest in Nikon Canon only challenges which are quite popular ? This series is a response to that.

There are only 13 challenges open for voting today. 3 are these extra camera type challenges. They add to the challenge availability. If I didn't run this series, there would be jus 10 challenges for the general public to enter, and 12 for the Canon Nikon shooters. Don't you get it? This is an extra to add to challenge availability for all the people already excluded by the other Nikon Canon only challenges.
