On Galen Rowell's Alpenglow challenge (26 comments in total)

Sorry to reply so late but I was in the back country of the Sierra Nevada's for 8 days, unable to recieve email. I know what aplenglow is yet my photo fit the descripton n the rules perfectly. If you were going by the strict rules on the internet then many of the other photos in the contest should have been disqualified also.

It is technically a man-made bird bath so it will not be disqualified.

RuthC: The capture date in this challenge makes it difficult for those of us in the cold, wet, southern hemisphere, where the poor birds aren't bathing with such cheerful abandon as they do in the summer months.

Good point Ruth! Up hear in Wisconsin they are everywhere! I'll change the capture date.

On Lilies in the That Colorful Lily! challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a water lily and because I did not exclude them in the rules I will allow it.

You are right Ruth. Lilies have three petals and three sepals (six tepals).

beckmn1: Lots of post processing on some too. Let's see how well the host deals with these as well.

This is the host. If you think one has excessive PP then please complain because as the host I cannot catch everything and need the help of others.

Thank you for all those you participated in my first hosting of a challenge. I was amazed at how many people had such wonderful shots of daisies and also amazed at hoe many don't read the rules, though I have been guilty of that at times.

Also thanks for all those who voted in this challenge and those who spotted some rule breakers and complained. My next challenge in this series is "That Colorful Lily!" which starts next Tuesday!
