CNY_AP: Real images are also a scam, like when the AP or Reuters had 100's of good images of George Bush Sr one day, yet used one of him seemingly standing under the helo (he wasn't) which had a sign on it stating "WARNING: Do not stand under moving rotor". Or how about when Mitt Romney was at an elementary school, and perverted liberals in the media thought it was amusing to use an image of a little girl seemingly looking in amazment at Mitt's butt or something. Every survey done proves the far majority (80-95%) in the main media outlets (ie outside of Kansas; etc) are liberals, and the resulting bias is obvious and destructive. BBC are a bunch of lefties too as far as I can tell...well, the UK is well left of the USA in general to begin with.

Just because they are not conservatives, does not mean they are liberals. There are more that two ways of thinking.

BBGunWB: Very interesting that this one didn't make it - http://ukcamerageek.com/blog/general/shocking-image-shows-tank-shell-hitting-rebel-outpost-in-syria/

Maybe because they are from a video.

l_objectif: I see too many .5 and 1 point votes in the first page!... I think it would be a good idea if the host check with other hosts to see if these are the same people who are trying to sandbag entries!

I would like to see people explaining why they vote extreme(.5, 1 and 5).

I think that 199 entries is too much to rate.

On The Light in the Photography challenge (1 comment in total)

I think this photograph would look if it were lit only with the candle, to give it more shadows, or just with the light and no candle.
But it would not be cool to tell the kid to put the candle away just because you want to take a picture.
Anyway, I like it.

If it had a little more sky, I would give it 5 stars. Top 5 for sure.

There is nothing better than wake up, open the window, and see the shameless drug addicts taking their daily dose.

He should read the "Employment Guide" behind him, so he can buy some weed.

It looks like the man is just chillin, or trying to sell the shells. I see no hookers, bums, nor junkies.

Alex da Veiga: After seeing this, I do not know if it is worth to submit my shot. You have the artist in the sweet spot, the curious pedestrian, also in the spot, and a really nice B&W. We can clearly see the instrument, and I can almost hear it.
Bravo.

Yeah, everything came together. That is why I am always ready for "the" shot, always with my Sony A-100 "locked and load".

High Quality?

"repeated arches that form over the corridor" a lot of the pictures do not obey this rule.
