  • Hi, I don't like the borders at all but some hosts ask it. I open the picture with "paint" and I enlarge the sides by a white border. That is all. For me a picture is not better with aborder. It ...

  • Hi, I think that the idea of a challenge asking a report telling a story around 2 to 5  pictures for example is interesting. I think however that a story, a report, can be illustrated better with ...
  • Commented on Mountain Life challenge

    for me this challenge is a misser even if the first pictures and most other pictures are beautiful.
    The host asked a mountain life history by 2 to 5 images. Most submittors did like that. But the...

  • my girlfriend (1957-2013) and me sponsor two girls from this family so that they can go to school. They are very happy. As this history is already running since some years I had no good camera to...

  • yes, that is possible like that. But it was not specified in the rules. So actually my "histories" are dismantled into 5 separate images.
  • There were lastly two challenges, Farm life and Mountain life. The subject was to tell a history by submitting until 5 images. When voting started I discovered that all the images are shuffled. It ...
  • Commented on Mountain Life challenge

    today I received the results of the farm life challenge. Like this challenge, 2 to 5 pictures to tell a history.
    The fact that the farm life challenge should tell a history is totally skipped by...

  • Dear Ruth, thank you to write this to clear the problem, because we cannot imagine all the anomalies the hosts discover sometimes. Leo
  • in some challenges I see pictures who have nothing to do with the subject,  sometimes I am also at the limit or I made an error. But the host has to disqualify the images which are not respecting ...
  • Strange indeed. My opinion in this: The challenge host has to survey during submission, not during or after voting. If the host disqualifies a picture, the photographer should have enough time ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Hiking in the Alps 5
    We, Marie and me, are now on the italian side of the Mont Blanc, which is more steep and rough than the french side. This itinerary can bring experienced climbers to the summit at 4807m. The Monzino hut, a little down on the picture, is at 2600m altitude. The guardian, Armando, is a famous mountain guide in this region.

    The Vercors mountains are part of the pre-alps, the summits are not so high, up to 2400m. The rock faces are vertical. No rivers, the water goes underground through a network of caves. There are wild animals like this ibex.

    The mountains in Corsica are very nice and surrounded by the mediterranean sea. Piana mountains are beautiful. On the horizon you see the Scandola mountains, a nature reserve.
