In reply to:

RuthC: These are not straw baskets, but made of fabric.

Dear Ruth, this is what I thought when I first saw this entry but with a closer look, you can see the straw baskets inside the fabric covers. Best regards.

If you are accepting hedgehogs from European, and porcupines from America, will you also accept echidnas (or spiny anteaters) from Australia?
Thanks, Ruth

On Container Cargo Ship challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

savonie: While there are some fine shots a great many of these aren't 'container ships' -
Is the challenge for 'container' as well as 'cargo' ships? Container ships are very different from tankers and bulkers etc- Perhaps I am misled by the challenge title-

You are correct, this challenge is only for container cargo ship. Photos that are related to other types of ship will be disqualified during the submission period

On Ivy challenge (4 comments in total)

Hi

I see that the topic I chose is again confusing despite all my efforts... Here is the explanation: ivy in the sense of what common people think. Let's get not into botanical discussions. Climber, creeper plants such bougainvillea or some type of roses are not within the scope. Leaves based creepers and climbers are acceptable. I hope it's much clearer now. Best regards

On Grazing Animals challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

RossAndrew: I think that you should DQ all the shots with only one animal in the frame, after all you did say (ANIMALS) and not animal.
How pedantic/small minded can you get. You need to have a good long look at your self.
This should include your sample shot as it has only one ANIMAL.

You made your point, thank you for your comment. best regards

In reply to:

cmantx: There are several moth shots entered. Are you allowing moths on flowers. I can see that as a logical followup to this challenge.

Yes, moths are also acceptable

On Domes from Inside challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

anisah: Two questions:
1. Does the image have to show the full interior of the dome? This is asked as many domes in mosques and some Christian churches are too large to get the whole dome into a single shot, even with a modern wide angle lens.
2. Many Roman Catholic churches, and even some others, also have a half dome over the main altar. Many such domes are beautifully decorated and originally served the same purpose as full domes, ie for sound amplification. Would such half domes be acceptable, as many possible entrants may not have access to full domes?
Thank you in advance for considering these questions.

Hi, thank you for your questions. Here are the answers:

1) it does not have to be the whole dome
2) half domes are also acceptable

Best regards

On Altar at the Mosque challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

vqueen: Dear participants, the correct word is "mihrap". However, in international texts, "mihrap" is explained as "altar" so that it makes sense to a wider audience. The sample photo is self-explanatory I beleive.

I changed the "altar" word with "mihrab" to eliminate confusion. Thanks for your comments

On 21st of March International Day of Forrests in the The Month - March challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

merops: This was my favourite photo in this challenge. I work in forests in the spring and you've caught the wonderful way that the light comes through the young leaves. It's also a nice composition. And you had a proper March link, which you explained in the notes. Congratulations on a wonderful entry, and thanks for posting :-)

Thank you very much for your encouraging comments. In fact I took this picture during a 2 days long trekking tour in the woods and it was one of the best nature experiences I had.
