Michael Leek: Why have so many photos that are clearly NOT lambs been allowed in this challenge? Surely this makes a mockery of the rules and the title!
Totally agree. One of the photos is even of a dog. How many of these stupid challenges did the host set up before they disappeared? And why are those unfinished challenges not automatically deleted once the host closes their account?
Too much repetition of the same challenge, over and over.
Do we really need the same challenge very week?
Just a question for clarification: must the image show the use of colour in the design of the item being photographed, or of the image as a whole? For example the white lighthouse that has been submitted, that does not use colour in the item being photographed, but the image as a whole has strong blue and white design elements. This is relevant to landscape shots where the picture is designed to showcase the colours, but where the landscape itself does not feature a design as such.
Isn't this just an exact duplication of the challenge from a week earlier? A challenge that after 4 days has only received 9 entries?
Does it have to be an exterior shot or are interiors acceptable too?
It's hard to tell the scale of this picture. The arch could be 2 metres high and shot hand-held or it could be 20 metres high and shot by a drone.
Is this actually a landscape shot? More a cityscape. Still nice though.
That's a pretty stunning picture. Makes we want to go out and photograph rally cars.
No patients even.
Great picture but not really a toy is it? You can't do anything with it.
Does a border such as this count as prohibited post-processing?
Great to see a camera like the S95 win a challenge like this. Shows that it's the lump of meat holding the camera that makes the shot.
Where is the campsite?
Very cool cloud formations. They look like a couple of dragon heads.
Two first places in DPReview challenges on the one day, with photos from the one shoot. Is that some kind of record? Well done!
rmw18k: Just so you know an airplane is not considered a motor vehicle. A motor vehicle is for roads, not rails or air.
I'm not concerned about the inclusion of trains, planes and boats, notwithstanding what my dictionary says. I have not lodged any complaints against train, plane or boat pictures and personally am happy to see them included in the challenge.
My dictionary says that a motor vehicle is "a road vehicle driven esp. by an internal combustion engine." That disqualifies about half of the entries, being all of the planes, boats, roller coasters, trains, the skate boarder and the diver. The tram could arguably stay given that trams do operate on roads.
