I too would have liked to have participated but the U.K. is not a participating country!! Does anyone know why this is, maybe DPR could find out?
WARNING! If Nokia haven't changed their business ethos and quality control, this product is certain to be plagued with many major software bugs and design flaws. Nokia release products before they are ready and without doing any software (and hardware) testing of prototypes. They rely on us to do it for them! How for example could a company as big as Nokia make such a mistake as to release the N97 phone that most of the time couldn't make or receive calls, not to mention many other major software bugs? This is the reason for their massive decline and the once market leader. In 2010 Nokia officially apologized for the amount of customers who have experienced issues with the N97 and the buggy software. This led to a large amount of potential customers choosing brands other than Nokia during this time period. And, Yes I was one of those people.
I made the decision then, and I still feel the same now, I WILL NEVER EVER TOUCH ANYTHING MADE BY NOKIA AGAIN.
You have been warned!
Apart from the fact that this is a great shot it breaches the rules! - "â€¢No Composites/ Don't cut out the background" Again the host fails to DQ a winning shot. Why bother entering a challenge if the rules are not enforced!
I thought they were supposed to be dead animal parts!!! perhaps another breach of the rules not DQ'd by the host!!
"people and animals can be in the photo but should not be the main subject"!! HOW MANY DIDN'T ENTER THIS CHALLENGE BECAUSE OF THIS RULE WHICH HAS BEEN TOTALLY IGNORED!!
This shot is the real winner as its the highest scoring shot that didnt violate the rules!
I agree this is a nice picture but it violates the rule "people and animals can be in the photo but should not be the main subject" Rules should be up held or what's the point in having them?
This is a truly spectacular shot and a well deserved winner so who is responsible for giving this a 0.5? They should give their reasons!I can only think it was done by a competitor in the same challenge (which goes without saying is seriously low) I have noticed this a lot in the challenges, great shots that certainly dont deserve less than a 2.0 but still somehow getting the odd 0.5 or a 1.0! This can be understood when the challenge theme is controversial or doesn't meet the rules but not when an image is spot on!
Great shot and very fitting with the challenge title - Bravo
Very nice composition/arrangement and nice contra light well done.
