I think the theme should remain ambiguous and see what we get - LOL!

You forgot to include: " . . . BELOW sea level" after "elevation of 282 ft."

On Last Light in the -Nudes- (Full Colours Only) challenge (6 comments in total)

From my brief assessment of a few entries, over 75 people voted in this challenge (95 at least on one photo). My guess is that most were male - due to the fact that most of the entries were female. Not sure what that means, but it says something.

Robert Soderlund: In the last balloon picture, doesn't it take few milliseconds for the sound to reach the flash at a meter or two? How did it fire in time?

Some cameras with electronic shutters can be faster than 1/8000. The Panasonic FZ1000 can do 1/16000.

On Tall Ship at Gloucester Docks in the Tall Ships challenge (2 comments in total)

This is such a fine entry. I find it hard to believe it didn't take 1st place. Wonderful shot.

On Portrait - Emotions in Black & White challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

cgravel: It is so much better when all the pictures are on one page instead of 5 or 6 different pages ! Keep it this way, please :)

At the top of all challenges windows is a pull down arrow in "Rows" to select the number of rows you wish to display at once - either 4,10, or 25. If 25 is selected, 100 entries can be shown on one long page.

Prague D Paul: Pardon my ignorance - but can anybody tell me, is there a way to see the progress of the voting so far?

Voting results are never revealed until the end of the challenge.

On Long Exposure in the Night challenge (1 comment in total)

Many of these entries do not meet the challenge rule for exposures needing to be 10 seconds or longer.

Fabulous capture. My money's on the Egret for winning this battle in the end.

On Aperture 2.8 or Larger + 50mm focal length challenge (11 comments in total)

UhBre: I think your "135-mm-equivalent" is a typo. Don't you mean: "35mm equivalent"?

Would anytime after sundown be considered "night"?

On Evil Clowns in the Halloween Still Life challenge (2 comments in total)

Perhaps a "large as life" still life that wasn't quite finished yet...

On Jigsaw Puzzle #10: Abstract Nature challenge (6 comments in total)

Can filters and/or special effect programs be used to make an image "abstract-looking" in appearance - or do you only want the appearance of the scene to look abstract naturally (perhaps via severe cropping or macro photography)?

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Isn't there some way Dpreview can display the entries such that those beginning with the same title can be grouped together alphabetically? Then it would sure make it a lot easier to vote in this challenge.

OK - too bad, but I understand. Please clarify something: do I understand correctly that this just one of a series of 3 challenges - each of which will have a different theme - in which photographers can enter 2-5 photos? I.e., each challenge will likely have a different population of photographers who enter, and voters who vote?
