(unknown member): How sad that this photo won. Diwali is now about fireworks?
Fireworks are as much a part of Diwali as say a christmas tree is a part of Christmas. Fireworks may not be ALL that Diwali is about, but it's still an integral part of it.
Just looked at your website. Big fan:D!!
What is going on in the tree and sky area in this photo?
Stunning. Gorgeous lighting.
OMG..this is your second challenge of challenges win isn't it? Great going!!..and of course an excellent pic :)
DUMB4SS: Lovely shot, but what on earth is going on with the color noise?
The color noise is my major regret with this pic..will have to try and clear it with some good software.
This and another photo that have no cycles in them should have long been removed by the challenge host. It's really strange that he did not bother to do so, especially since he spent a lot of time making the rules..autumn AND cycling AND size restrictions PLUS a time restriction PLUS no minors and oh! "the shot must be good"!! And then someone enters a shot with no cycle...:D
My sentiments exactly!
My favorite photo of the challenge..absolutely beautiful!
I do hope the challenge host gets cracking and disqualifies images like these ....he clearly stated no panoramas or cityscapes!
Sad that chips, candy, coke, donuts and neon-colored cupcakes qualify as "normal, everyday things" to some..Ther're certainly carb-loaded junk food to me!!
Agreed! A unique photo!
This photo wins?? The abnormally high 5s that this person usually gets sure helps.
A gorgeous abstract!
Well, since we are on the subject of rudeness, yes, of COURSE my first comment was provoked by scooper1 's comment on my "yellow wall", which, incidentally, I consider rude too!! It's just not my style to attack other people's photos with sarcastic comments without any reason. In short, he started it, I didn't.
I'm just fed-up with some self-proclaimed challenge police who take it upon themselves to critique perfectly ok images that obey all challenge rules simply because they don't like that it ranks well. My guess is that had that "yellow wall" ranked low, scooper1 would have left it alone.
Maybe scooper1 and his supporters should all find a green wall to photograph? :D
If I had an ill-composed snapshot such as this, I wouldn't have entered it in ANY challenge :)))
"Just as good the tenth time as the first"...Why, thank you!! " Do you have any others?"...well as a matter of fact I do..you can look at my profile.I just don't see why it upsets some people so much to see a pic do well in several challenges :D It's my photo and I can put it in as many challenges as I deem fit!
Beautiful like a painting.Oh and in my opinion, as long as the challenge host allows entries that have been entered to previous challenges, one can enter a pic as often as one likes. If I had a pic as beautiful as this, I certainly would not hesitate to do so.
Winning three challenges on the same day!! It's a first in challenge history!
Talk about turning a useless pic into something astounding...I love this photo and know it has done extremely well in previous challenges...just had no idea that the original looked like THAT (ref "original" challenge)!!! Just feel bad for the "original" pic that fared so poor in its own challenge..:)
