I have contacted the entrant, as soon as I recieve a response from him/her, I will resolve the situation.
Thank you for your input.
Hi there,The challenge required photographers to shoot the hands producing produce from the photographers local area. As stated in the rules, I was looking for the process of producing, picking and/or making what the person's area is known for. Quite frankly, if the local area of the photographer is known for pottery items, I see no problems with the entry as it conforms to all the other rules stipulated.
I have messaged the complainant, and will take the matter from there as soon as I have a response from them.
Le Kilt: I have a great photo of an Oysterman at work on remote oysterbeds, but it was taken before the announcement date :-(Some pics are just not that easy to go out and take again!
Hi Le Kilt... It seems to be a problem, the capture date rule, lesson learned from my side. Next time I'll remove the rule and try a similar challenge.
Thank yo for the input!
Jan2009: Ok help me out, Seattle is known for Starbucks.. but we dont have the coffee plantation, We also have Microsoft.. we have a lot of people from India and China... Also Amazon is from here... I guess I wont be able to join this Challenge as nothing fits :) any suggestion?
Oh wait DPR headquarter moved here.. Nah.. doesn't count...
Hi Jan2009, be creative... in your case you may not be able show the hands picking the beans but you can show the hands making the coffee... there is a process in everything done, it is the process rather than the finsihed product I'm looking for... As I mentioned in the rules, I dont want to see the finished cup of coffee, but rather the process in which it is made...
Having people from India and China in your area means you will have corresponding restaurants selling the foods, which will have to be prepared.
Shout if theres any more help/ideas I can give
Thanks ashfaque, KonstantinosK is correct, I'm not Greek. I went to Athens with the wife and saw most of it through the lens of my camera (the wife's made peace with that) ;). I thought I'd be adventurous and set the camera to B&W from the start. In retrospect, I wouldn't do it any other way, ever again!
Very nice! Congratulations
Thank you, much appreciated!
