kw5kw: IN processing rules: "Must be a digital what"????

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.

On Implied Letters challenge (2 comments in total)

Some of these are very confusing. I thought the concept was to crop the image so the letter was clear. I see very few that are cropped like the sample.

On Banded Butterflies in the The Shallows challenge (2 comments in total)

Love both the salt and town piers on Bonaire but I have to agree, this does not appear to be in 6' or less of water. I guess you have to give the photographer the benefit of the doubt as it is hard to be sure how deep a shot is taken at times. This shot

http://underexposed.us/images/Wing_0062.jpg

could have been 1m or it could have been 3m. I know it's right where we jump in but I can't be certain because I took it a while back.

Do mammals count? I know a dolphin might confuse some people. Once, at band camp, there was this Whale...

On The hand in the 100 challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paulo Matos: Great idea! Congratulations!
I only wish to know if cloning the hand can be considered basic pp.

While cool, I gave it a low score because of the cloning. Great idea and I like the shot, I just didn't think it fit the rules.

Very well done. One of the nicest shots I've seen in a while.

I've had a few DQ's for size, but most have re-submitted and I just wanted to say thanks for understanding the 1600 requirement.

Great concept but photo needs more DOF.

On 100 in the 100 challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice shot and would score high in the proper challenge but this is all speculation.

On Spinning 100 yen in the 100 challenge (1 comment in total)

I was ready to give this a very high vote for creativity. If it had been a 50 yen coin I would have but this shows 200 not 100.

OK, sorry for my english.

I have never heard the word "Tefosi" before but now I know what it means.

On Giant flag at the Dodger stadium in the typhoid stadium challenge (1 comment in total)

Looks like the stands were artificially blurred and is a distraction to my eyes. Other then that I like it.

On Action series... Swimming challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Deleted pending purge: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/swim

swim (swm)
v. swam (swm), swum (swm), swim·ming, swims
v.intr.
1. To move through water by means of the limbs, fins, or tail.
2. To move as though gliding through water.
3. To float on water or another liquid.
4.
a. To be covered or flooded with or as if with a liquid: chicken swimming in gravy.
b. To possess a superfluity; abound: After winning the lottery, she was swimming in money.
5. To experience a floating or giddy sensation; be dizzy: "his brain still swimming with the effects of the last night's champagne" (Robert Smith Surtees).
6. To appear to spin or reel lazily: The room swam before my eyes.
v.tr.
1. To move through or across (a body of water) by swimming: She swam the channel.
2. To execute (a particular stroke) in swimming.
3. To cause to swim or float.

It seems that even the simplest of things need defining... Why people would rather be disqualified than read the Intro and Rules, that's mysterious...

I've been swimming in regret for missing this one so a picture of me looking regretful would have worked, right? I sure wish people would read and follow the rules as it would make life easier.

On Hard back challenge (5 comments in total)

UPDATE

I have been in contact with Mr. Butler of DPR and he has asked for a little time to talk with the IT people to see if they can drill down any deeper then I have with the data available to them. He seems willing, but lacks the ability to go beyond what I have done himself and is escalating the issue. I hope to hear back shortly but did tell him I would post my findings later if they can't help with more details.

Thanks
Mark James
