On My favourite lens challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bhimaprasad Maiti: While submitting a photo ,one remark is appearing-the date of the shoot must be after the date of announcement.There no such stipulation in the challenge as of now.Is it a hidden agenda.

Your reasoning is faulty, Bhimaprasad. I read the challenge rules the first day they were posted, and saw the requirement that "images must be shot after the announcement date . . .". I'm sure the challenge host will do his job. Just give him a chance!

On Classic fighters challenge (5 comments in total)

I see "savonie" has been busy trying to discredit some of the entries that are "training" aircraft, rather than official "fighter" planes. However, he (or she) has not even made comment on a few entries that are WW I trainers, or a couple that could be trainers, but are not identified - or identifiable - by just what can be seen in the photo. Perhaps it would be helpful if the real host makes a ruling here. Are military training aircraft allowed in this challenge?

On Classic fighters challenge (5 comments in total)

As much as fighters and bombers were important to the players of World War 2, the trainer was what gave pilots their first taste of flight, and therefore were important tools of the "fight" for liberation.

On Fishing boat in the An Inanimate Object challenge (2 comments in total)

A boat with objects on board. Doesn't this violate the rules of the challenge?

On Iran-Yazd in the An image challenge (10 comments in total)

When the average number of members who voted for most of the other top-placed entries is 26, and this entry received 12 "high" votes (more than twice as many as other top entries) makes this a highly suspicious entry, IMO.

As of today (4/19/15), still quite a few entries that are less than 15 second exposures.

On Restored Classic Cars challenge (4 comments in total)

It might be helpful if you tell us how old a car needs to be in order to be considered a "classic" for this challenge.

I think this was meant as some kind of April Fools Joke - that didn't quite make the date in time!

At 4.3 mm, you must have been on the Lunar Lander nearing the moon when you took this shot - LOL!

On Tender Moment in the Pairs III - subtle situations in the nature challenge (1 comment in total)

Reminiscent of the beach scene in "From Here To Eternity", with Bert Lancaster and Deborah Kerr (1953).

On Essie in the - Coco - (Full colours only + Border) challenge (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

IceCool77: When I first saw this entry, I immediately thought this should be the winning entry by a mile! This cutie is the perfect embodiment of the theme! If this didn't win, it would be a travesty of good sense!

Looking at this photo, it's like as if you had your mouth half open, about to bite into your delicious BBQ chicken sandwich, when you get a funny feeling of being intently watched. Looking down, you get drawn into those EYES and wordlessly hand over a chunk of your sandwich. You simply can't resist the melting gaze! "Please, haven't I been a good little doggy? Aren't you gonna share everything with me?"

And this is when female owners go "Ohhh, you little cutie you! Mama wuvs Coco so much. Mwah, mwah, mwah!" :)

Thank you for your comments, IceCool77. Although Essie is not my dog, you are right on about your description. We were all eating lunch, and I got this look from Essie when I took her picture!

On - Beautiful Day - (Full colours only + Border) challenge (0 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: From a previous disqualification, it appears you may have a somewhat narrow definition of what constitutes "scenery". Could you be more specific regarding what you mean by "street scenery"?

First of all, thanks all for your votes for Essie. This is a friend's dog, and everyone - and I mean EVERYONE - wants to hug and kiss this adorable pooch.

FWIW: don't know why my comment above (which was directed to a different challenge of ConanFuji's) appears here.

In reply to:

ggc: Really nice pictures exept, obviously imho... the first one!

Bernina Express - Switzerland.? A piece of train badly cut on the side?

It really stands up in being the only one i don't like, and i would say i REALLY don't like!

Now, now, ggc . . . don't mince words about how you REALLY feel - LOL! Personally, I would find the image lackluster and anemic without the train - but difference of opinion is what makes the world go 'round, isn't it?
