In reply to:

brancaleone: Please, make rules more clear "1600 pixel on its longest end." can be understood that it shouldn't be "longer" than 1600 pixel. Just to save your and ours time.

Thank you.

I added "MUST BE EXACTLY" and see if that helps. I thought the 1600 was clear as it doesn't say "up to" or "1600 or less".

Although I must say, I've only DQ'ed a couple for being too small, most are DQ'ed for being too big.

Just DQ mine, I'm confused with your process and I don't have 2 hours to read everything.

Could use shallower DOF so the back flower is more OOF.

RaptorUK: "The longer side of the photo should be up to 1600px. "

Should makes it non-mandatory, i.e. a recommendation not a rule . . . you should use MUST . . .

"The longer side of the photo must be no longer than 1600px. "

I know, I tried to look at that fish with the whiskers before you DQ'ed it and it was taking forever to load so I just stopped. I hadn't seen one of those before.

On Retrieve in the Dogs at Work challenge (1 comment in total)

Very nice, I would have scored it higher but was too soft for my tastes when enlarged. Looks like a great dog. The only thing mine retrieves is coconuts and he drops those on your bare feet!

In reply to:

Daniel0181: Love it

Thanks, getting the guys to be still for a 13 second exposure was asking a lot after a few beers, but they did good in this shot and a few others. I turned on the arch lights for 3 seconds and the pool lights for 5 seconds to get them to expose the way I wanted and make the people visible.

On Its Up to You!!! #2 challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

RaptorUK: "Its up to you ! ! !" . . . .

except for the additional rules . . . then it's most certainly NOT up to you.

They've thinned it down though and that's a start.

While I think most people understand it is a rule and not a suggestion, I also know there is always one in the crowd that will read it wrong. There will be far more DQ's for not reading the rules then for getting confused with this wording which I understood.

On Little black dress with red lips challenge (5 comments in total)

Less then half met the rules. I think the best photo is the girl with the plane but had to score score it low with most of the others for not being within the rules.

On blowing a black dress in the Little black dress with red lips challenge (4 comments in total)

This is a very nice shot but it's a skirt that isn't really black and her lips are not red. Might be great in a challenge where it meets the rules.

I don't want to see a dog working at that!

In reply to:

RickBuddy: Nice topic.

Probably need to show what the dog is working at. Like, I have some wonderful photos of hunting dog trials -- the owners love them -- but without a bird or a hunter they don't look much different than Fido chasing a stick.

Thoughts?

I agree, hard for me to give a high score to a dog that might be playing. There are a couple of very nice shots that I just couldn't put at the head of the pack, so to speak. ;)

On DSC_1601 in the Dogs at Work challenge (4 comments in total)

I wish this file would have been smaller so I could enlarge it. Very nice and I agree that a crop might high-lite the dog better.

Worth hanging on your wall if it's your dog.
