On Get in Close. challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tim A2: I was disqualified for entering a photo that was too large, but it was not because I did not read the rules, it was because of my own stupidity. I very carefully read the rules, resized my photo to comply and then uploaded the original by mistake. You can bet I won't do that again. Sorry to be a nuisance.

Tim

Bummer Tim. It was a good shot as well. I was hoping you were able repost before the slot was taken.
Regards.
Ernest

Well we had a full house. One bad image has been removed. I think the poster was pushing the boundaries of what is considered bad taste. Thanks to a fellow host for alerting me.

I agree. This is a photo challenge, not a shock competition.

Amazing entries, pity about having to disqualify some for not reading the rules :-(. Great participation so far, thank you all.

Very well done to all who so generously participated. The Willet on Gold is a well deserved winner.

Great Shot, please check the size. I know I set the size requirement to 1500 (next time will be 1600) I would hate you to win to have some participants cry fowl saying the shot was not 1500 :-(

Glad you resized it. Looks a lot like our Sun bird, a nectar eater.

Thanks & regards.

ER_ Wizard: Thank you all that participated so generously in this my first challenge, makes it worth it. :-)

Hi Raptor. You are certainly correct in me not having experience in DPR challenges, as for other on line challenges, I can more than hold my own :-).

I have checked your active participation & note you are not a current participant of Challenges (unless I missed something). Did note your checking of dates & drawing folks attention to errors, you must have a lot of time on your hands.

I would love to see some of your work not counting your great shots of cars.

My assumption of you being part of DPR results from your mail address :-). I will kick off another challenge & hopefully will not step on any mine field & hopefully make a meaningful contribution to my favorite photographic site DPReview.
Regards.
Ernest.

Hi Raptor. Criticism I can handle (been part of this wonderful platform DPR for a long time). What I saw as a blunt pounch I can not. If you, (assume again) are part of the DPR Team & feel I am unable to host, then remove me. If I survive, I will learn as most do & will continue with challenges. Threats, this African does not respond to well.
Regards.
Ernest.

All removed. I assume you are the Challenge police or watchdog. I must have missed the part in challenge rules not to name individuals, thanks for pointing it out.

I had posted comments on most shots, I had named the individuals in my opening address............ this appears to be taboo, So I removed all comments.
