On Compound Words challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

upuaut: Seems like what I meant the theme to be didn't convey in the description. Let me try with examples. Skyscraper: I imagined a scraper (the tool) scraping the sky (using PP etc), or, the scraper made of 'sky'. Hotrod: a rod glowing from heat. Blood-orange: half orange with blood inside.

Note that the rules allow all the PP you need.

Some compound words might be difficult to convey in images (per intention of this challenge)

Anyway, I hope this comment helps steer the rest of submissions. Thanks.

Example image probably would have helped. Fun challenge worth repeating in the future!

On Double Contradiction challenge (7 comments in total)

I don't think your example shows "contradiction". Perhaps you meant "contrasting".

Definition of Contradiction:
1. act or an instance of contradicting
2. proposition, statement, or phrase that asserts or implies both the truth and falsity of something <a round square is a contradiction in terms>
3. logical incongruity
4. a situation in which inherent factors, actions, or propositions are inconsistent or contrary to one another

On Ivy Madness in the Jigsaw Puzzle: Nature #9 challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is a really beautiful picture of ivy, ysal, and deserves a top place in this Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge. You've captured the ivy leaves in their full display of colours, and the variations of reds/greens and purples make for a very interesting picture all round. The branches, to my mind, add another dimension with their contrasting greys and burnished reds. Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth!
