grayowl: Would you increase? The challenge has been filled up as stated in the additional rule.

I will add 10 more slots tomorrow and at the same time I will DQ those entries that have slower shutter speeds than required.

For those reviewing the entries, There are a couple with no shutter speed, and a couple that are less than the 1/4 minimum. I've given these entrants time to re-enter and I am checking the actual shutter speeds where missing.

Since the challenge is full I didn't want to DQ without giving them each a chance at a re-entry.

gfa5775: Hi Barb,
Can you clarify the minimum time, is it 25 seconds or .25 seconds as in 1/4 second? It is hard to tell if the decimal point is for the min abbreviation or meant as a fraction.
Thanks

Sorry, I see what you mean. The minimum is 1/4 second for this challenge.

Good luck!

On Red Rock Country: The Magnificent Five challenge (6 comments in total)

Great challenge… I spend last summer in that area, and can't wait to see all the entries here because the area was breathtaking, plus I took a wrong turn and missed Bryce.

In reply to:

christian jacob: I think you should add "man made" or organic or similar to your rules. Every pebble or sand corn is far older than a hundred years.

Hmmm…. too late to append the rules but I agree. It's not a nature challenge. Thanks for the suggestion.

CalBoy87: My apology to all who commented on my previous post: Apathy. As I agreed with most opinions regarding soft eyes, it is not something I could improve, so I came up with different shot. Thank you all for your effort and sorry for changing the shot.

I think changing the shot is the right thing to do if there's flaws you can't work around.
