On Tricks & Treats challenge (5 comments in total)

Another clever challenge idea. To help level the playing field, what weight should the voter give to the aesthetic value of the photo?

On - Rooftop Vista - (Border, Title, Date) challenge (3 comments in total)

So, is a rooftop vista a view from a rooftop, or is it a view of rooftops?

On The Devil's Washboard, Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur in the Sunset in the beach II challenge (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

Coyote_Cody: I have been there many times, can't figure the angle of this shot?

Coyote, Google map has a good satellite view of these rocks. Just Google "Pfeiffer Beach". Sycamore Canyon Rd points right to this channel. The channel splits in two to make a Y. This photo was taken down the right leg of the Y looking from the beach or the left leg of the Y looking from the ocean.

This is truly minimalist and actually conveys a sense of nostalgia. I don't understand the lowest 5 votes. Well done.

On (Semi-) Pro Equipment - NO rules! challenge (16 comments in total)

Many people, possibly most, think of pro/semi-pro as referring to the quality of the camera and not the quality of photos taken by the camera, which is more dependent on the operator than the camera. Pro/semi-pro cameras provide ready access to critical controls and can withstand the rigors of professional photography.

On (Semi-) Pro Equipment - special rules; read carefully! challenge (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

HansJN: I've sent in quite a few photos to the various challenges but the only thing I ever learned from any of them was that I do not understand voting criteria. At all.

How are we supposed to learn from seeing a bunch of numbers underneath each photo? That just tells us that other people either liked/disliked the image, the appropriateness of the image to the challenge, or the technical merits of the image, or were just plain trolling. We don't even know which of the four it is!

I'm also at a loss why a beginner would be using semi-pro equipment.

If you read the posts in the forum you find a negative tone that is just not consistent with the actual results for most challenges. My experience is that the final ratings in the challenges are quite accurate and that most people who don't think so don't want to admit their entries that placed lower than expected are not as good as they thought, or they are not aware the entries did not meet the theme. The lower you place the more there is to learn.

Thank you both for the nice comments. Thank you Ruth for a well run, fun challenge. Santamonica, it seems I was fortunate I entered when I did. Your photos of the southwest and the others on your website are very impressive.

You and that K5 did good.

Captivating photo. If voters could have seen your description when voting, I think you would have placed higher. Some may have thought the little girl was the actual subject and not the chair. The more I look at it the more I like it.

amosf: Inside the frame? Inside the park? Inside the country? Inside the biosphere of the planet earth? meh. We are always inside something :)

Just think of "inside" as another way of saying "in it", then the sentence becomes: Photo must have at least 2 people in it.

On The Love Birds in the Pigeons challenge (3 comments in total)

Just for the record, this photo was discussed in the Challenge forum, and it was concluded that doves are pigeons.

Of the 1st 21 entries, only one, possibly two qualify as both minimalistic and nostalgic, in my mind anyway, but then nostalgia is a personal thing. If I see a photo that reminds me of something I enjoyed last year, is that nostalgia? Just How far into the past must one go for a nostalgic subject? On the other hand, I think minimalism is pretty straightforward.
