Great capture, Dolmala. I've always wanted to visit this geologic wonder. Maybe some day.

Buzz Lightyear: I don't know why Dpreview administration still allows Conan to be a host. His archaic biases and perverted interests keep erupting in these challenges.

My above response was to a member who commented at this image that Conan's prohibition of photos of any transsexual orientated persons to be negatively prejudicial - and voiced his objection by refusing to participate in a challenge with such discriminatory rules. I find it puzzling that his comment no longer appears. It's possible that my comment may be removed in short order also.

A photo of my doctorate thesis should place high in this challenge . . .

In reply to:

RuthC: So far, I've had to disqualify fifteen entries because their camera date/time settings showed that the pictures were taken in the afternoon or night, and not during the morning. If I left them in the challenge, it wouldn't be fair to all those who have set their date/time correctly.
So folks, PLEASE make sure your camera settings are correct, especially when you travel out of time zones.
Ruth :-(

I think I went 2-3 months before I realized I had incorrectly set my camera time. It (and I think the majority of cameras) use the 24 hour military time format. E.g., 8:00 pm in the evening should actually be set as: "20:00".

Bhimaprasad Maiti: The Host is clear as p/p s are prohibited.So one should take Jpg shots and submit.

A most unintelligent suggestion...

Some of these entries look more nightmarish and horrifying - rather than pleasantly dreamy.

Nice composition, Hunter. Wish we had such medieval architecture here in the States. It makes for great photographs.

One challenge has already ended, but neither has rules forbidding it. What's your point?

In reply to:

db.: What, Hans, is your problem with watermarks? As a professional (text-) journalist, I fight for the rights of every author—of text, images or music alike—to protect his creation from being stolen. I would never ever publicly display an image of mine without reminding the viewer(s) with a watermark that they may not use my «creation» without—at least—asking permission. If you forbid the watermark, you will never see a picture of mine in any of your challenges... Sorry!

I am glad you enforce this rule, Hans. Some of the watermarks I've seen here are not only distracting, but hideously self-aggrandizing displays.

Thanks for your comment, Ruth. Interestingly, Papa, there are probably more birds (pelicans in particular) always concentrated on this single rock than any other place in the county. If I want to take photos of Brown Pelicans, I always go here.

You must know, of course, that there no way to unequivocally prove that entries have NOT BEEN TOUCHED UP in any way. The fact that a RAW photo is converted to .JPG is a form of post-processing. I will go so far as to predict that at least 60-75% of the entries in this challenge will have been touched up in some way, and that you nor anyone else will be able to tell.

rgrstockphoto: how do I replace a challenge photo already uploaded?

Click and open your photo you want to replace; select "Withdraw" at bottom right, and again to confirm. Then you can add a new entry.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: How small?

What I mean is . . . can you be a little more specific on what is meant by "small" planes? One engine only; two or less? 5 passenger or less, or up to 25?

In reply to:

Bhimaprasad Maiti: The Host should explain in details what he means by selective colour,In this connection ,he for one, goes through the posts on Shot Integrity, in DPR Open Talk Forum -the basic tenet in photography -more specifically for frequent deviation from the original shot through innumerable stages in post processing-ultimately ,the shot loses basic originality.

Bhimaprasad: you have one version of what you think is "real digital photography" which you seem to want to shove down everyone else's throat. I, for one, am just tired of hearing your going on about it - often times rambling on in what seems like nonsense verbiage. We get it. Now go vote in challenges as you see fit - and, as Ruth so ably put it: put a cork in it for the rest of us!
