the shot w/ gulls on the lines was dq'd as not a cruise ship. wrongly imo. there is a thread in the challenge discussion forum.

I have always voted in any challenge I entered (I do vote in other challenges also). and, have always voted on every entry other than my own. I will do that here, but I am sure I will not give the effort to each that any entry deserves even though I like bird photos. too many! I will be careful to avoid such challenges in the future.

the biggest problem with voting is too few people doing it. it is a bad rule

In reply to:

bettyhilda: Agreed. But isn't the host asking for things that in themselves are ubiquitous but when joined with something else that is ubiquitous become ubiquitous as a couple and omnipresent worldwide together? That's how I read it, Finding examples is difficult but some entries above are general enough to convey this? Interesting challenge!

i agree the challenge subject is interesting. and was happy to find an entry that filled the challenge host's expectations. but, it really is not the right word for that expectation

On Challenge:8438 (16 comments in total)

nothing about the meaning of ubiquitous would require 2 subjects. it does not mean a thing that is associated with another thing. it means something that seems to be everywhere. robins in spring (n. america) are ubiquitous. however,as i read the challenge host's explanation, a photo of a robin would not be acceptable.
