thanks for replying - no, I didn't receive an automated message. Do you know why it was disqualified ?

Michael Ma: People that are saying these are mostly the work of photoshop probably don't know how to use photoshop all that well. The reason is that they think Photoshop is responsible for the majority of the work in these photos. The time she spent in photoshop is probably fractions compared to the time she spent capturing it.

Photoshop can't make up for all the hard work that's being put into lighting in these photos. And it cannot fix bad compositions or the lack thereof. You might think it can, but try it. It takes more than telling your dog and child to go run around while mommy takes pictures while the sun is coming down, then hoping to create magic at home with photoshop.

This woman is master at composition, color, and lighting for her style of photography.

Judging from how balanced and sophisticated her compositions are, she probably is conceptualizing the photos first on paper. You don't often get that lucky with compositions out in the wild without planning.

well said Michael, couldn't agree more.

In reply to:

edur: FINALLY!!!

This is the way a camera should be controlled.

Shutterspeed, aperture ... and ISO.

The three primary parameters of exposure.

Why did it take this long for camera makers to ditch PASM, and place ISO alongside shutter speed and aperture? This is much simpler and straight forward.

Thank you Fujifilm!
This will be my next camera.

I agree. Since using the Fujis, whose menus are very quick and logical to navigate, I find it impossible to know where stuff is on my 20D. Sure modern cameras are computers - but it doesn't mean they shouldn't operate like ...well, a camera !
I think this looks great from an operational point of view, but whether certain things like iso and exposure mode are any quicker to access remains to be seen

The interface is great, I think it should give a better voting system for the challenges overall. As for the photos....where to start, they are all fantastic.
