commented ) the challenge had the title "Museum
Exhibits" ...and then , finally - the title was changed to
the "Work of Art " ...

Identical ???...
1. " ...museum exhibits (s) as the main subject." versus
"... building(s) as the main subject."
2."... amount of human should be limited to less than 0.5%
of the photo area " versus "... amount of human should
be limited to less than 1% of the photo area."

On Pentax Q Series challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

pedroboe100: I can't believe that my photo made it last. This is ridiculous. It was bettered by snapshots that say nothing. The photo was intentionally de focused to create the right atmosphere, not because I am careless about my photography. Some people here really have no passion for narrative.

Did you read the processing rule ? ...
"...Image adjustments/enhancements are allowed, but
nothing excessive or fake."

Gary Zuercher: In reference to your disqualification of my Heliconia image, I would note that the two green cylindrical shapes in the image are the stem of the plant.

...and the seven multi-colored "lobster claws" shapes
in the image :

inside the bracts , but none of them is visible in the image

In reply to:

Simon Dass: Dear host... can u increase the number of entries? i was about to upload, but its already full.

Sorry for being unclear...but I was thinking about
disqualifications - not about increasing the total
submissions' limit.
You can make a lot of room in the challenge , if you
DQ the entries ( at least 30% of them ) that don't
fit the rules you've set...
There are macro shots without solid black or white
background , there are close-up shots with
multicolor background , there are shots of a few
flowers, even there is a picture of a fruit (poppy fruit)...

You can easily "increase" the limit by disqualification
those entries ( at least 30% ) which don't comply with
the challenge's rule : "...shot of a single flower
against a solid black or solid white background."

In reply to:

scooper1: Dave,
No, you're not alone. Only a very few entries actually complied with the key requirement of the challenge. Disappointing.

Looks like the few recent challenges - in this series -
are going on their own , without any signs of hosting ...
A few months ago , the host explained his absence
in this way : "... I was elsewhere, had a very large
headache(a natural one) also, and busy just gained
4-5 awards for my photographs somewhere else..."

On Sky Phenomena challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

JamesD28: Just to clarify, here are some of the things which don't count as a sky phenomena:
- Regular clouds
- Colours in clouds due to sunrises/sunsets
- Sun rays
- Mist & heat haze.

The sample pictures you have provided - have nothing
to do with the "sky phenomena" . They just show some
forms of lens flare. The lens flare is a very common
"phenomena" - especially with the ultra-wide lens and
the sun located in the centre of the photographed scene.

On My professional DSLR or SLR challenge (9 comments in total)

The entry which finished 8th - doesn't comply with
the challenge's rules :
1. It was not taken with a professional DSLR ...
2. It's a composite photo ( I've never seen this kind of night
shot of the Milky Way - taken with shutter speed 1/125 sec.)
3. The entrant is a proven cheater ( multiple accounts , exif data
manipulation )...
