I suggest that all challenge allowing free use of P.P. will be a double entry, including the original, before appling P.P.
I send you a 1200 pixels tall but it was DQ "too big" - way?
something happened in your site, i think. since yesterday morning i can't upload pics to your different challenges. my explorer is version 8.0.6001.18702 and it worked beautifully up till now. i tried to upload on another computer with the same bad results. i suggest that you check your end and see if the problem is there .thanks
For the last few hours I cannot enter my pics into this and other challenges.it seems that i can't go beyond the step of "upload image".
what do you suggest I do ?
Actualy Frogner Park.vigeland was a scukptor -ordered to make 2 statues but made 2,000 !
A colorful nice shot' but like in most of the comments, I suggest cropping the darker left side and part of the upper sky.On the other hand I like the beautiful reflections on the water.Please try subbmiting an improved version.
a very nice shot of a not so ugly duck , the red decorations all over the face is very photogenic. all i can think of improving is cropping a bit of the upper part of the picture and making the reds a little more vivid.i didn't vote for this challenge but i'm sure i would have given it at least a 4.
this is a much improved version. still, i agree with Patty Capps comments.i would suggest cropping to show mostly the upper right corner, in a square format , that would eliminate the background diversion in the left upper corner.of course, the best solution would be to take a new shot that would illustrate this nice idea of a wet red flower.
I agree to most of the previous comments,and particularly to landscape cropping, cutting part of the top and part of the bottom.initially i liked very much the antic look, "lo-fi" quality of the picture, but after watching it for a while, i think that more vivid colors would help.i really expect to see an improved version of the picture.
i guess that you entered the "TIME" challenge. in my view , closeup of part of the watch is ok but the watch hands are not sharp enough. the seconds hand blur signifies movement but i would have liked to see the other 2 hands much sharper. i like very much the sepia antique color.
Congratulations an excellent photo and worhy winner!
thanks gerry328 for your comment. still, i wanted to achieve the effect of freezing the ball (it should look sharp) and everything else blurry. i started with a sharp picture and used focal zoom to achieve the shown result. evidently it's impossible to actually freeze time, and this was my way of trying to capture the idea of freezing movement.i would thank you and all others if you view the picture at full screen.
This was submited to the challenge "Time" - scored only 37.6% (88 out of 141) .I thought it was an original, nice interpetesion of "time" - to show how to freez time, but to my dsmay I scored poorly.WHY ?
Of course "Richt2000" is right, but an artist is entitled to some freedom of association.I quoted William Blake from his poem (1794) " The Tyger":
Tyger, tyger burning bright In the forests of the nightWhat immortal hand or eyeCould frame thy ferful symmetry
i love it. the big orange wheel is a really nice contrast to the rest of the pic.
colorful and lively picture. does it really mean to keep off bad criticism ????
sorry but it seems to me that there are not enough wheels and cogs to make the pic interesting
