On challenge What a cool truck! (2 comments in total)

There are 2 truck pictures that look like the same truck in this challenge. Sometimes 2 friends or a husband and wife shoot together so it can be 2 people who submitted these 2 photos. It is also possible someone uses 2 identities, but I think it's more likely that it's the former case. I was questioned on this, which is why I am commenting, and not disqualifying anyone.

CreativeBug: Hello Barb_s,
For your Bokeh challenge could you get a sample image for it?
I am a slight bit confused with the rules.

Thanks,
~CreativeBug

I did not see this in time. I would have replied that I am not pointing anyone in a direction with this set of challenges. It's a wide open challenge. 1 word for each one, and up to the entrants to decide what they want to enter - as long as it actually does represent the "challenge word" in some manner. I'm not picking words that have multiple meanings i, but words that might allow for a wide variety of illustration.

This was my favorite. I love the expression, and the soft background focus.

I really loved this one, Something about the pose, and clarity and lighting worked for me. You got my 5 star vote on this one Jill.

You make me wish I bought the D750 - Plus it looks like you made great friends with the Tamron long zoom. I've read mixed reviews on that lens and wasn't sure - but you sure make it work.

This is such a standout. I had started voting last week, and didn't get thru the full set. I'm sure I would have given this one my 5 star rank. It's striking, and colorful and just so unique! A very interesting entry indeed!

barb_s: congratulations on the win. I thought there were quite a few worthy entries here, and yours is no exception.

Not too hard with the way I've structured things this year. It's balanced and fun for everyone (I hope).

In reply to:

marcomariano: macro's should not be allowed, as all macro's have shallow dof. just saying... :)

The challenge is open to everything - it's all about each person's decision on how they want to illustrate the "challenge word". No exclusions in this series... but I understand your viewpoint.

On photo Racoon in the Whiskers (Nature Challenge) challenge (1 comment in total)

I have to ask - this looks so fierce, and not like a raccoon disposition. Was it a yawn? Either way - great shot!!

Mr Low Notes: Good shot Barb! Looks a lot like the Smoky Mountains where I live.

Small world! My 1 trip south by car was a long time ago and I stayed in Gatlinburg and had a flat tire in Pigeon Forge. Triple A said "Go to a local station to repair it ; we don't know where Pigeon Forge is!" So, I know what it looked like before it became any kind of destination :)

In reply to:

Massive2: so many entries don`t include the word boat

And had someone printed the word "Boat" and photographed it, I'd let the joke run the course. You know it would finish at the bottom end. I am trying to keep things simple, let as many people who want to enter, do so.

On challenge Boat (10 comments in total)

Sorry if a few photo's are not the typical definition of a boat. The series description says "Each contestant should enter a photo that they believe illustrates that 1 word. There are no other rules."

I want the series to run as easily as possible with the least amount of complaints. If someone thinks an aircraft carrier is a boat, I'm allowing it. I'm trying not to DQ unless I see a clear misunderstanding of the "word".

That's exactly what I thought, as I drive thru the Smoky mountains just once, and before taking up photography. I'll head that way again sometime I Hope.
