On church of skulls in the Life and death challenge (1 comment in total)

You are the date taken cheater...
How come it was " taken" on Tuesday, 2nd June, 2015 - if it
was posted on your Google account on 13th . December, 2011 ?

Majority of the entries are not a "still life" photos.
Eight entries broke the date taken rule : the date
was cheated or exif removed.
The "winning" photo is a stolen photo.
Disaster...:-(

On Helios: Swirl Bokeh challenge (14 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kal Biro: "6. Exit Data should be there."

Did you mean "Exif Data"?

The lens information in the exif data can't be there...
All Helios lenses are manual focus lenses , and they
don't communicate electronically ( except a focus
confirmation adapter ) with cameras.

In reply to:

cgravel: Thanks for re-opening ! :)

Instead of DQ the entries which don't fit the
challenge's theme - the host increased the limit ...
Sorry , but your submissions - like many others -
don't comply with the description of the
challenge's theme...

On Rainy day - Black and White challenge (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

malcolml1: It's a really interesting topic. Such a shame it is restricted to film only.

@ malcolml1 : Those who have digital images with the
" interesting topic " ( ...photo that illustrates the mood you would feel during a soggy day ) can enter - for example - the Beatles vs. Rolling Stones " challenge...
The Rolling Stones "As Tears Go By" :
"...All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by..."

- or The Beatles " Rain " :
"...Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines
(When it rains and shines)
It's just a state of mind?
(When it rains and shines)...

in this area.

On Morning. challenge (14 comments in total)

I think there is a typo error in the additional rules...
Instead of "Submissions must be shot before 12 pm ." - should be
"... before 12 AM . "

On My favourite lens challenge (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bhimaprasad Maiti: While submitting a photo ,one remark is appearing-the date of the shoot must be after the date of announcement.There no such stipulation in the challenge as of now.Is it a hidden agenda.

@ Bhimaprasad Maiti : the rule states , that the photos
must be shot after 27.04.2015 GMT (!!!) time ...
At the time of the announcement , in the time zones
to the west of the GMT - there was still 26.04.2015 .
So , IMO - in some cases , images taken on 26.04.2015
should be accepted ...

On f/22 challenge (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

b f: In response to that my entry was DQ.
The lens was manual and no aperture was recorded. Technically speaking, the star form of the sun is a proof it's taken at f22.

@ b f : even if the lens was manual , a lot of information
( except the lens model , focal length and aperture )
should be recorded in the exif data...But the image has
no exif : zero information.
...And "technically speaking " - the photo shows sun
flares typical for the lens used : Rokinon 8mm fish-eye .
The lens easily produces flares even at f-stops well
below the f/22 ...

On A flower challenge (21 comments in total)
In reply to:

ForrestGump: I'm always surprised in seeing how many comments there are on challenges...I'm not used to this, and therefore I'm always late in answering. Sorry for that.
Some clarification, now.
You should understand PP is difficult to be detected, so I can make mistakes.
BUT, since I don't think I'm right and you're wrong, I'm open to discussion and explanation.
So, whenever you think your entry has been unfairly disqualified, MP me. Explain your reasons, how the image was taken, link me the original image.

Macro vs close up: macro lens isn't a cheap toy, and if someone think he/she has a stunning image, I won't discriminate it on salary basis.

Whole flower vs part: if an image is missing just minimal detail, I consider it a whole flower image.

Entry number: I want to keep it low because, when voting, I'd like people cast their vote on ALL entries. If entries are 60 it can be done, if they're 80 perhaps, if they're 120 it's impossible.

@ ForrestGump - if you never heard about a
"close - up lens " just google it , or read this :

On A portrait in Corcos style challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

ForrestGump: 21 entries up to now, and some very good images. There are some pics which has nothing of Corcos style, but some are really impressive!! Quite happy.

Yeah...there are many entries which have nothing to
do with the "Corcos style "...
There are many pictures which don't comply with the rules
you have set ... There are 9 pictures with the longer edge
over 3000 pixels , and some HDR and heavily PP pictures ...

In reply to:

James Stover: My image was challenged because there was too much PP. The color was not highly saturated in PP. The only change was to crop and a slight change to the background. I can post the original image, plus about 50 more similar images. Please restore the image.

Yes , you're right... but , the quoted sentence can be
interpreted in a few ways. What the sentence means -
should be clarified by the host of the challenge...

Looks like you didn't read the challenge's rules :
" Submit a macro picture of one single flower "
Your picture is not a macro picture - it's a close-up picture.
It's not a picture of a "single flower" ...
It's a picture of a Blue Bonnet's singe steam covered
by many flowers...

The image doesn't comply with the challenge's pp rules :
"Challenges in this series regards all those pics containing no PP except
for minor cropping or straightening. Obviously, no HDR or focus
stacking allowed. "
