I particularly love this one, I think it expresses various different stories!

On Legacy of Nuclear Waste challenge (5 comments in total)

"Nuclear waste is piling up everywhere"

I guess "everywhere" wasn't the word you were looking for, but you still thought it was a good introduction for the challenge description.

On Beauty and the Beast in the Contrasts challenge (1 comment in total)

6 half-star votes? I don't get it.
Would at least one of these voters come up with some explanation for such a low vote (if there is any besides sandbagging)?

On My best picture ever ! challenge (9 comments in total)

The first 20 entries are all equally beautiful (even though the 4th is my favourite) and most of the entries are well balanced.

What i find disturbing is the low number of votes on this challenge. 7904 votes on a 200(194 to be honest) entries challenge is extremely low (say 40per participant if every participant votes takes part in the voting phase and no other member joins, so the numbers may be even lower). This is an indication of iindifference (and sloppiness as how one handles the votes to other photos) -IMHO-

Congratulations to everyone, this challenge was full of beautiful photos!

On Blacksmith Bill in the Photojournalism Steve McCurry style. challenge (2 comments in total)

my two cents is that it could have taken a much better position (maybe top10) if it post-processing wasn't that strong. still, a great shot!

Amazing composition, colours and a powerful expression. Should be No.1, imho

On Return to Radiology in the Cancer Stricken ~ Part 2 (1 adult human) challenge (1 comment in total)

My favorite, i think it stands out because you had the courage to think about capturing a moment (no matter what you were going through at that moment).

I don't consider your illness less important than the others', i have already lost a loved one due to prostate cancer and i know it is no joke. Hope you get over it soon!

On a lady in red in the I Spy: women with red clothes (Read Rules) challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

britties: a very good photo! congatulations for winning!

however I would like to ask if the photo has been severely photoshopped, since i can recognize a weird grey outline around the lady in red, it is quite apparent on her left arm and around her shoes. What happened while shooting this (judging by the result) amazing photograph?

The original photo is just right but it doesn't change the fact that your winning photo looks overmanipulated.

Sorry, but in photography if something is visible then it is true.

Hello,
I would like to clarify something about compliance with challenge rules. Since the term 'morning' depends on geographical parameters and the participant's habits, (hehe) does it have to look like it's shot in the morning or does the photo have to fit in a time span which is accepted as 'morning' (according to exif)?

My point is that the morning-noon boundary is not always that clear (especially in foggy/cloudy days)...

On Blondes Portrait challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ed at Ridersite: Full Exif data - No watermarks, no date/time nor any other identification allowed.

There is a conflict here. Date/time is in the EXIF ;-)

According to the answer given by another challenge host in a similar question, the answer was that he meant no date/time printed on the photo. He didn't ask the users to delethe this info from the EXIF.

My guess is that this answer applies to this challenge as well.

On Schwabacher's-Landing in the Into the world of Infrared challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations Steven for your beautiful photo!

Regarding your question, infrared radiation (light) isn't absorbed as much as visible light by smoke, clouds, fog and similar particles in the atmosphere. It is therefore able to penetrate these "obstacles" and reach the sensor of your camera. This is why you are able to see behind clouds, smoke and so on with an infrared camera.
