On Taurus World Record in the Drivin' that Train... challenge (8 comments in total)
In reply to:

Flachi89: I answer to one of two pictures to stop these absurd allegations, on which I am very offended.
Both proposals were selected photos from various magazines about trains and are the result of much effort and careful choice of location, light, weather, and train (in fact I chose the locomotive that holds the world speed record, one in the WORLD, for those who know), so I seem anything but ordinary, otherwise I would not have proposed.
I would appreciate that before commenting so rude shots of other people there were real grounds for complaint.
Thank you.

The comments are based on the friend votes for your pictures. No one comes here, enters their first challenge with 2 photo's and gets a 2nd and 3rd place on merit. Your photo's show a group of "5"s as votes. Those are your friends, they are not realistic votes. The rest of the competitors did not add the picture to facebook or ask friends and family to give them a hand to move their photo's to the top. You may not even realize that the facebook link causes this kind of problem with the voting since it's your 1st competition.

It's much more fun to see how you do without skewing the votes knowingly or otherwise. I'm guessing you saw the facebook link, clicked it and ad no idea it would impact voting. I hope you enter more challenges but don't advertise it to anyone until the challenge is over. that's all it's about. Even the managers of this site realize it, and just removed the FB link to help with this issue.

This is my personal favorite in the group... A group of many really nice photos. But I just love the 2 tone background matching this little fella. It's a very worthy entry. Congratulations on runner up!

On tulip with Bubbles photo in barb_s's photo gallery (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wildbegonia: Beautiful, wow. The light, I can see the bubbles moving up. How many tulips did you sacrifice? :) No, seriously, it is perfect and my favorite part, it is shot with a P&S.

Thank you :), I had fun with this last year. Just a couple of tulips were used up with some experiments when I was home on a snow day.

Congratulations all. Those here are the top 50% of all entries , so even if you placed in the lower part of the grouping, you really already placed well. I hope it was fun for everyone.
