Domenick Creaco: Great shot, especially the menacing face of the ant, and the way the background blur directs the viewer to it. Terrific job, well done.

Thank you so much!

In reply to:

(unknown member): Why is this challenge site still using flash based uploads?

You should ask the site - not post on a challenge comment section where no one who develops or updates the site will see it. At the bottom is a feedback link. I would try that.

barb_s: Quite a heavenly photo. This is one of my favorites here.

That's what I thought a well, I had a hard time picking my top "5" with no real theme. This was in it of course.

On photo Nature's Balance in the My Lifetime Best Photo challenge (2 comments in total)

This was one of my favorites. Striking and beautiful. The blurred background really sets this off for me. Congratulations! While the challenge did not generate a large number of entries, I think the quality was pretty high across the board and this is a well deserved win.

In reply to:

J Mountford: 500 entries, why not up it to 2 or 3 per person?

This is an experiment to see if we can attract more participants, and not an entry count per-SE. A few years ago it seemed like there were many challenges with much more than 100 entrants. Hosts have reduced most entry limits to 50 in so many challenges, that I thought this might bring more great photography/photographers into the challenges this week. Some people have been questioning whether challenges have lost their steam here. Some think the problems with uploading are archaic and contributing to some loss as well. Due to those conversations, I just wanted to see if having an open challenge would bring back more people. I hope so. :)

So, pick your best shot ever see how the cards fall. Good luck!

Nice; very nice conversion.
So totally doesn't deserve the four poor marks.
Time for you to compete in a "host-only-challenge."
:-D

This was an unexpected entry for sure (to be coming from you). I thought you must have had a bad week :)

In reply to:

Bhimaprasad Maiti: The Host,to classify in two category-1)U.S.participants,2) Non-U.S.English speaking participants.That would take care of Sand -bagging.

Why would separating into two groups make any difference to a best photo from everybody?
