On challenge Your City - Lighting in the City (6 comments in total)

I don't understand: NO city panoramas are allowed, regardless of how they are titled . . . or just city panoramas with the title "City Lights in . . ."?????

On photo Decaying Elegance in the Your City - Just One House challenge (2 comments in total)

It's too far gone now, Saleen. Nothing's been done to improve or fix it for several years now, so weather and time have taken its toll. It's fenced off with signs that say "DANGER: Do not enter".

On challenge Abstract Photo - Architecture (1 comment in total)

Abstract is from a Latin word meaning "pulled away, detached," and the basic idea is of something detached from physical, or concrete, reality. It is frequently used of ideas, meaning that they don't have a clear applicability to real life, and of art, meaning that it doesn't pictorially represent reality.

On challenge Abstract Tree Photo (10 comments in total)

Abstract is from a Latin word meaning "pulled away, detached," and the basic idea is of something detached from physical, or concrete, reality. It is frequently used of ideas, meaning that they don't have a clear applicability to real life, and of art, meaning that it doesn't pictorially represent reality.

Applying this definition, it seems to me that a large percentage of these submitted entries are not, to my mind, representative of abstract images (including two of the top three entries). Many look too much like real trees, cleverly processed to perhaps take on the appearance of fine art" images - but "abstract"? Not to my way of thinking.

BTW - I concur that limiting challenges to 60-70 entries is ideal.

Bhimaprasad Maiti: But natural shots,because of uncertainty of happening should not be treated at per with arranged shots

Consequently, overtures mades in the absence of quantitative sequences should not be heartily endorsed without pre-arrangement.

I thought this was a wonderful image, esp. in B&W, and deserved a much higher ranking.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Not to take away from your fine image, cjf2, but in several similar type challenges, I noticed that people always seem to give high marks to these RED selective color shots. I wonder why that is?

LOL!

In reply to:

Mond: Time Lapse; surely that is a movie format? Do you mean slow shutter blur?

Natthu: that's your opinion, but I think it would be helpful to get clarification by the host to be sure of what he/she intended.
