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.

On Photo Fish Hunt challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

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. "

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.

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

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

On Dogs at Work challenge (4 comments in total)
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.

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.

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