On Glassware Photography challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

tasad: ... "Additional rules: Color ONLY! ..."
So , what the two B/W entries ( " zebra style " ) are doing here?

OK , generally I agree with the most of the above sentences.
BTW : if we're talking about some personal manners
regarding challenges , it would be nice - when using not
host's own pictures as a sample images - to ask the original
owners of the photos for a permission .
These sample images are copyrighted... But here is no
information who originally took the pictures , and no links
to the ORIGINAL ( not something like Pinterest ) source of
the images ...

On Capital City Series: Rome, Italy challenge (12 comments in total)

If the challenge is about the capital city of Rome , Italy - why
there are so many entries taken in the Vatican City State ?
Vatican City State ( country) is administratively , territorially and
politically independent , sovereign from the city of Rome ...
Also , the entry titled "Roman Soldiers" has nothing to do
with a "roman soldiers " ( and city of Rome ) . Actually
it shows soldiers of "San Marco Regiment " . The regiment is
located in Brindisi - 540 km away from Rome ...

On 3rd Place challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: What is great about these "runner up" challenges is the obvious high quality of photographs entered. It is a feast for the eyes to see all these wonderful images collected in one place. While they didn't win a 1st in their previous respective challenges, any of them are deserving of a top placement. My head is spinning trying to select a winner here.

At least two entries in this challenge - have won first
place in previous challenges .
There is even an image entered 18 times in previous
challenges ...but , so far - it did not win ...

The entry which won the 2nd place in this challenge -
has won twice 1st place in these previous challenges :
http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=761894
http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=653159
How does it comply with the idea of this challenge and with the
challenge's introduction sentence :
" We all know that sometimes one of our favorite photos doesn't
quite get the win ..."

In reply to:

db.: What an uninviting and
unpleasant way of expres-
sing all those «Additional
Rules»! Don't you think
the rules set up by dpr
are enough? When a
child, did you want to
become a policeman??

@db : sorry - but there is no such thing like
" rules set up by dpreview for all challenges " ...
Rules are independently set up by hosts ...Only by hosts...

On Luminosity in the Macro - Glass challenge (1 comment in total)

" Processing rules: Minimum and basic post processing only."
This image is a product of extensive Photoshop's manipulation...
A photo was post processed using illustration/watercolor filters
and then Photoshop's "mirror image effect" has been used.
The right half of the image is exactly the same like the left half.

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 :
http://500px.com/photo/56116926
...and here :

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

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...
