On challenge Black + White +1 (2 comments in total)

Please vote with the sprit of this challenge in mind. Lower scores for photos that aren't truly black & white or contain more than one additional color, etc.

On photo Album Cover Eyes in the Record album cover challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dutch Newchurch: This deserves a special commendation from the challenge host. The band thought this would make a memorable and eye-catching album cover. They particularly liked the imaginative use of white space to make an effective composition from a striking rectangular image.

Thank you. There wasn't enough in the original to crop to 1x1 without losing part of the eyes, so I went "album cover" with it.

On challenge Show your two colors 2! (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

NilsBV: From the rules, we can assume that black and white, which are strictly speaking not colours, will be treated as if they were colours?

If you believe that what we see as black here is truly black (absorption of all visible wavelengths) or white ( a combination of all visible wavelengths) then yes, you should limit yourself to the prettier colors. However, I will allow black and white for this challenge simply because they are considered colors in the photography world. This is not a physics forum. Nor a forum for nit pickers.

On challenge Show your two colors! (17 comments in total)
In reply to:

kkardster: Perhaps as an aid, if you use the "count colors" feature of your image processing software, it should report the number 2 prior to saving your JPEG image. If it doesn't, you need to reduce the number of colors to 2.

You might also look at the color levels graphs - it should be fairly obvious when more than two colors are involved.

Yes, apparently both the conversion to JPEG and whatever DPR does with it's galleries and downloads is adding colors o soften the transitions between the two colors. This is entirely acceptable for this challenge (we have no other choice!) And I am doing my best to weed out only those images with perceptible three or more colors. Using color level graphs aids me in this determination - there would be only two fairly sharp peaks.

I apologize for any submissions that may have been disqualified before this came to light. I will also review all DQs to see which may have been disqualified when the perhaps shouldn't have been.

If you have a 2-color only photo you'd like to submit, please do so. And if you have had a photo disqualified unfairly from this challenge due to this issue, please let me know via private message.

Nice one. It reminds me of the family figures one sees on the rear windows of vehicles.

Note that I will be hosting a subsequent challenge where you can enter photos containing two primary colors, which will allow most of the disqualifications from this challenge to participate. Again, sorry for any confusion regarding this challenge and if your entry was disqualified. This will be in September after I return from vacation.

Nicely done - I had to view the full size image before I could see you'd only used two colors!

On photo Red Wall in the Show your two colors! challenge (1 comment in total)

Sorry, but this was a 2-color only challenge. Per the rules:
Different shades of the two colors are not allowed - treat this as a "black and white only" challenge with no colors in between.
This image a so close I'm leery to DQ it, but I already stated I need to follow the rules to the letter. It might look great reduced to two colors only.
