On Honey Bee at work in the Wild! in the Wildlife macro challenge (1 comment in total)

I really like this pic. I wish it was a tad crisper. I know that's nit picking, but the composition is so nice. If it were just a shade more crisp on the focus this would really be world class.

This is a cool little snake. I wish you had cropped it closer.

According to what I see it's legal. It's a great picture.

On Survival in the Lonely Dry Tree challenge (1 comment in total)

I really like this picture, but I fail to see how it's a dry tree. Anything standing in the middle of water doesn't strike me as dry.

On The Cross challenge (3 comments in total)

It takes effort and time to make a quality photograph. Being disqualified when all the rules were followed exactly, is foul.

On Dragon in the sky-1 in the Rainbow challenge (1 comment in total)

This is an interesting picture, but I don't see a rainbow.

On Photograph emotions: "Your Deepest Regret" challenge (5 comments in total)

If a series is submitted, how will we know they belong together? We won't know the author and they are shown in random order.

On Peace of Mind [B&W] challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

onlooker: Folks, I propose a little twist in voting - when you look at the entries and see one you are not interested in, just skip it and go to the next one. Do not vote it down. If you see an entry you consider interesting, please vote from 3 to 5 stars. If the results are encouraging, perhaps it might help DPR change the voting system to one that would de-emphasize negative voting and sandbagging.

Thank you for your consideration.

To discuss the challenge, please go to this post on the forum:

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1044&message=39467922

Not voting is almost the same as voting low. The algorithm includes the number of votes as well as the rating. So, someone who gets only one vote, even if that vote is a 5, they could still end up very low in the ranking.

As long as you have a number system and allow anyone to vote, the voting will always have trouble.

On - Emulating a Drawing - challenge (11 comments in total)

My first pic was DQ'd, but I'm not sure why. I guess it is because of the capture date. I thought processing it after the announcement met the criteria. So, I took another today. I hope this one is acceptable.

It was never my intention to thwart the rules.

Solar Ben: Please excuse me, what does Pp mean? Thanks.

"Post Process" or editing the photo after it is taken.

They won't be DQ'd before the close of submissions.

"If unsure of any of the rules please do ask."

You told us to ask if unsure. Why won't you respond to our questions?

On My Mother's Hands in the Hands challenge (3 comments in total)

This is a marvelous picture.

I'm new to taking quality pictures. Would you please tell me how you get pictures like this? How do you get the black background?

How many votes do we need? Is zero OK as long as I put "Votes=0" in the title?

Direct link | Posted on Oct 10, 2011 at 18:14 UTC as 1st comment | 1 reply

The title says "Animals", but the verbiage says "wild bird". So, does it have to be a bird and does it have to be wild? If it does have to be a wild bird, there are only two or three that fit so far.

Are drops considered "reflected water"?

On The Long and winding road in the The Long and Winding Road challenge (1 comment in total)

I wish you had adjusted the exposure on this one. Shutter at 1/500 was just too fast for that aperture. It's a good pic that would have been much better if you tweaked it in PS a little.

I don't know how to edit a comment so, I'm posting another. Would you please contact me through the message system? I have a question about how you made that photograph.
