On Light-lamps challenge (7 comments in total)

LAMPS PEOPLE!! LAAAMMMPPPSSSS... geezus christ, does anyone care about the rules? " behind the scenes look at how a photographer uses creative lighting, in this case the lamps, to illuminate his subject." Translation: the photo you enter should be an in progress photo, showing the different positioning/style of lamps used to achieve the final product, not a final product photo. A great example would be the photos that ranked 3rd, 22nd and 50th. The lamps shown in these photos were never intended to ever be seen in the photos, while many of the entries main focus was a picture of a lamp, and according to the rules... well I'm sure you all get my point by now...

In reply to:

RuthC: I've read the rules several times, and the host's description for the challenge, and it seems to me that many of the entries have ignored the host's request for the SUBJECT to be illuminated by a lamp. Instead they have made the LAMP the sole subject of the picture. Am I missing something here?

No Ruthc, you are not missing anything you are right on point. I see, and this is pushing it, seven photos which meet the criteria. Seven out of the 105 entries. I know it would be rude to DQ this many entries but in my mind, and just about everywhere else in the world, if you don't follow the rules you can't participate. But these are just harmless photo challenges and as long as people vote according to the challenge rules, things will iron themselves out. My chances look good so time to enter.

On P3214595 in the Magazine article: Amazing miniatures challenge (4 comments in total)

Not too shabby, I would have kept the light and the power cord out of the shot though.

On PYRAMIDS OF GIZA in the Magazine article: Amazing miniatures challenge (1 comment in total)

You should have put these outside, in the sand and and taken the photo around dusk and get as low to the ground as possible. I would actually build up the sand I was going to place these on so the center of my lens would be almost level with the base of the pyramid. That would help make these pyramids "appear realistic".

In reply to:

Larry Moran: This is a much better photo than the winner.

I agree, I think this photo should have won and the 27th place photo a close second. Thats just my opinion...

In reply to:

tarakanchik: While it is the same picture, people enter same shots in more than one challenge all the time... It doesn't get noticed because it is rare that it wins twice.

Medium rare I'd say tarakanchik. Good pick 7 years ago, maybe this year chon wai can get the entire head in the frame.

On Sittin this one out... in the Blurry Subject, Crisp Background challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Malcolm Chalmers: Are you asking us to have purposely put the uninteresting foreground out of focus to highlight the more interesting background or unintentionally have the foreground blurry?

I really don't think it matters if it was done on purpose or by accident as long as " the subject (and there MUST be a subject, no landscapes) to be out of focus while the background is crisp and clear." So to clarify, blurry foreground clear background.

Joel dc: nice shot. i won't join because of this cool nice shot

I think you should enter Joel dc, as long as people vote according to the challenge specifications and you enter a photo that meets the criteria, you will have a good chance at earning a top place as there are not many photos that do meet the criteria. I say go for it. Hell I did.

Third times a charm.

I thought the challenge was "Blurry noisy cellphone photo's that are still interesting" not cellphone photos that are interesting. But I guess I could be wrong.

"straight out of the phone no post processing" that means no ysal, enter the photo as is.

On Loneliness challenge (2 comments in total)

Question: Is using the "auto" iso setting considered cheating? Just curious what others think. Personally I think if you didn't set up your camera manually, you can't really take credit for the photo because your camera did all the thinking for you. Don't be shy let me know what you think.
