On Red. in the Lips (full color only) challenge (5 comments in total)

Great image ...Like most NPW UK's images - done with lots
of work and creativity ...But , IMO - the post processing used
in the image , went far beyond the "basic PP" required by
the challenge's rules.
Is it 'basic PP" - as described by NPW UK here :

http://www.fujimugs.com/challenge/entry.php?entry=122559

"Rotation and cropping. Layers and curves. Temperature and Hue. Saturation and brightness. Dust and scratch tool. Brush tool and clone stamp. Spot healing tool. Sharpened and resized. "

"Her mouth was quite black in the original photo, but the flash picked up some back teeth faintly which looked odd so I darkened and evened out the area."

Five Piece: Killer shot, just wish the watermark was a bit more discrete positions, distracts just a little.

Looks like you didn't notice , that the challenge is
about using ND filters and long time exposure ...
And - as per the challenge's rules : no HDR , no
major photoshop editing...
This image is not a "long exposure shot" . This image
was composed from two long exposures shots ,
manually blended in Photoshop - as you explained
the post processing here :

...and here :

And nowhere has been mentioned , that a ND filter
was used to take this photo ...

On Shopping Park challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Elyahu: Do you mean shopping centre or mall?

You have clearly described the challenge as
the "World in HDR" series - and nothing is about
the HDR in the challenge's rules...

How did you get the 15 mm focal length - if you were
using non- fisheye zoom 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM and
the full-frame Canon EOS 5D Mark III ?

In reply to:

cjf2: Thanks for the votes everyone. I guess we've all felt like he looks, so each viewer finds the picture amusing in our their way. I have another shot of it and although it is a bit dark between his legs I think it is a male.

I think , that he missed his wife and his child -
whose you met the next day here :

On Last Summers Flowers challenge (3 comments in total)

Looks like an another Nigel's "cryptic" challenge : no capture date
restriction ... but photographs from last year , last summers ...
Most of the entries were not taken during the last year
summer ( northern hemisphere or southern hemisphere ).
Some entries are a few years old . Some have cheated on
the date taken ...
