Prashant Bande: Can I post my entry if some entry is withdrawn/dis-qualified? Or can we increase some more entries?
klaas-Rotterdam: Hopefully you are not offended when you read this.
To be honest I am a bit disappointed and annoyed when I see the pictures entered into this challenge.This challenge states clearly “”The theme is simple an ARTISTIC photo of a duck, Be creative!””
Although I see nice pictures, where is the creativity you asked for, like the one in 16th place and since when is a merganser ( 5th place) a duck?
Hi Klass,I am more than happy with you leaving a comment at the challenge. I was kindly asked by dictators like RaptorUK not to dq entries because they are not "good", so ....these are the results.
RuthC: I have some interesting shots of pelicans, but since I only use a compact camera, I'm banned from entering this challenge. Pity!!
you're welcome! :)
Nobody will be dq but if there is any entry withdrawn tou can enter. The number can't be increased.
As you can see and as you will see I won't dq any good photo just because it is not taken with a DSLR. But I'd like to be taken with cameras not with iPhones or any other garbage with a camera on it!
Deleted pending purge: Hi, Alexandru... and beg to disagree with some of the communication below.I'd just want to highlight the fact that your Challenge introduction and rules allow for your theme (the frogs) to be photographed in any kind of ambient.What you expressly require is the title, and what you expressly forbid is phone cameras. Otherwise, as long as there's frogs, visible and not hidden in water etc... from what you wrote, such images are acceptable.Consider the frog peeking out of the blue vessel of some kind: they kind of tend to make just anything their "natural ambience"... Be it shoes, or plastic cans, or whatever. In human surrounding, animals don't have much of a choice.Long story short, I'd suggest some more lenient approach, since the Entrants had no way of knowing what you actually wanted them to submit.Also, banning people for asking questions is, to my mind, wrong.So please reinstate the entries DQ'd for the reasons you described below, and let the voters judge them.Regards
I understand what you say and I agree on some parts but participants who wore dq( mostly) started talking trash about me ( in private) before I told them why I dq them!
Tim_Owel: Um....? DQed... No reason given.
First: I don't care about you, your house or your country, I care only about things that involves me.Second: This challenge is not about frogs on shoes or on any objectsThird: If you want me to talk trash about you...just tell me!
the challenge is about frogs in their habitate not on the shoes...and btw don't even bother trying to enter another one....you are banned you are banned from this or any of my future challenges
Please stop the number of entries at 100 because 200 is just too much and nobody will vote 200 entries!
james skibsted: My pic was DQd..no title.....Hello....the title was "Trapped...."
your title was this: IMG_5192a
VM1981: Hi,Could I ask why mine was disqualified too please? I'm assuming it was because you could not see all of the frog. I hope all the photos of toads (clearly not frogs...) will be disqualified too?!Thanks,VM
Hi!A perfect photo has to show at least 50% of the frog!
Buzz Lightyear: FOUL! UNFAIR! You disqualified my entry because it was a metal sculptured frog? No where in your discription does it say the "frog" has to be live! I guess because you are the challenge host, you can do anything you want -- but next time maybe you'll be more clear about the rules.
It is VERY FAIR....my series is about ANIMALS....so next time use your head...btw you are banned from any of my future challenges
dpas11: Is it Frog or Frogs because one of the sentences read: •The frog must be visible, not full underwater or hided under something.
It does not matter as long as the frog/frogs covers the most of the frame
Rich Pix: Hi Alex
Can I remove my portrait format portrait and re-enter with landscape format bird head and neck even tho challenge full as requested originally peasel?
Yes you can but be very fast !!! If someone take your place (after you withdrawn your photo) is not my fault!
better good luck!
