In reply to:

wolfytom: My photo has been disqualified and to be honest I'm getting fed up of this.

The photo consists of light passing through stained glass with its shadow falling onto a white net curtain - how is that inappropriate?

It seems ridiculous that people set challenges with poorly written (sometimes illiterate) text and then jump all over entries that don't meet some kind of image they have in their head!
What a joke.

I've also deleted a separate comment/question from you in this section - specifically because it drew attention to another entry and that's not proper when voting is in progress. I thought the photo referenced has some type of cellophane that light passed thru. Your entry is in.

Sorry. I added a sample picture to help illustrate what I failed to state.

To any entrants I have DQ"d: Please feel free to discuss your entry with me in private messages. I am not an expert on everything, and I can be mistaken with the DQ process. I am happy to re-instate anything if I am incorrect.

I did want this to be a challenge of light passing thru objects, and creating shadows with color from the objects as well as hoping for some creativity.

Good luck!

In reply to:

RuthC: Barb, do you require the subject causing the reflected light to be part of the picture, or can it be assumed from the shadow? Ruth

Hi Ruth, good question - and no, I do not require the object to be in the picture. Shadows themselves are OK.

babalu: Barb, are color reflections also allowed?

No, sorry, this is about shadows , not reflections.

bobcamm: Thanks merops and barb_s.
Jagged Ambush bugs are really tiny!
This nymph was less than 1/4" in total length.

Thanks, and it's a great find!

On Oil Beetle in the Interesting Insects challenge (2 comments in total)

somehow this one spoke to me. It's size, it's antennae, just a cool picture and I found it to be my top choice.

This is such a cute critter. When the challenge is over, can you post how large this fella was?

On Flower(s) with backlighting challenge (4 comments in total)

In my last challenge, the flower silhouette, I DQ'd over 3/4 of all entries because I went with the simple definition of silhouette, while there are worldwide variations on that definition. I set this challenge up to give a broad license of interpretation since the previous was not. Please contact me if you feel I'm not on target here.
