'The name of the mobile/cell phone model MUST be mentioned (like 'Nokia E5'), failing so will attract disqualification.'
We just want to confirm that we are not just looking for photo-art (Hugely manipulated / photoshopped photographs are ENCOURAGED).Any photograph relating to the topic is most welcome.
Disqualified this image initially. But the photographer provided proper explanation. So it is back.
l_objectif: Are photo composites allowed?
not encouraged, but won't be disqualified.
Wildbegonia: Are snow storms allowed?
Molarjung: A Couple of Sample Entries, please!!!
One or two sample entries will put the thoughts on a single track. we do not prefer that.For your reference please check entries already been entered. All of them are OK.Cheers !
Jen003: Could I please seek clarification?Is the Challenge, Toes & Fingers; or is it Toes OR Fingers?Thank you
'only toes' : ACCEPTED'only fingers' : ACCEPTED'toes and fingers' : ACCEPTED
Molarjung: A very creative challenge! I love it.
karlwitt: I hope someone can tell me why my photo was disqualified. It said anything or person.
Okay, you are back.
Thanks everyone for the overwhelming response !The limit has been raised to 150 !Cheers !:-)
In the small disqualifying-message you have been requested to explain why you consider the subject of your phtotgraph to be 'useless'.Many a participants have been asked the same question and few photographs have been returned to the challenge based on the answer.Kindly comply.Cheers !
Would like to know where in WA ?
RaptorUK: Can I enter a picture of your Bridge Over The Brook Challenge ? it was totally Useless.
I personally don't need any one to judge my challenges and, I am quite certain, neither do dpreview (otherwise there would have been a system to rate the challenges based on 'useful'-ness) .
I am quite satisfied with the volume of the entries and votes my challenges get, and this is enough indication how 'useful' the challenges are.
If some raptor thinks my challenges could not live up to his expectation my earnest request to him would be: please stay off from my challenges, stop polluting the challenge environment with gem of your comments and find out better and more useful place to blabber.
If your intelligence tells you that all the 100 photographers who participated and all 2290 votes cast for 'Bridge over the Brook' were for something useless you sure can post a photograph from that challenge. And title it 'This is what my useless intelligence could think of'
OldArrow: This is a tough one. Perhaps the Challenge Intro should read "... useless in the opinion of the photographer". Otherwise, one could argue that there is not anyTHING being quite useless, and as for anyONE... it would be hard to present an image without being offensive. Or political.
Agree to your point.But there are few things which can safely be called 'useless'... like old cars in a junkyard. 'appearing useless', perhaps, is the point to be noticed.:-)cheers !
Dear Participants,We have already DQ'd many entries of this challenge. While choosing the photographs we have been lenient and DQd only those which were going outright against the theme.If any of the current snaps still looks DQ-material please mention (PM me).Cheers,Saswata
tasad: "Where I have been last night" ... and no restrictions about "capture date rules" ?
will definitely raise the limit...we have discussed (why /why not) the capture date rule already.
yes, of course
Wildbegonia: Finally! not caption date rules! K)
No date rule:-)
Now if we really become serious about the date, tell me which one you would prefer ?25th August ? since on 26th the submission beginsor31st August ? as on 1st September the submission ends.
For us this is just about the story of a night, any night
