On photo Steamy, Strong and Sweet in the mechanical challenge (3 comments in total)

Wow, that is a big engine and a lot to fill the frame with! There was such variety in the mix, I couldn't guess which would pull into 1st place. There are many that were worthy, including this one. Congratulations for the win!

barrym1966: 15 out of 38, even years after school I still manage to be average :)

Actually, yours was 15 out of 43 when it went thru the votes. A few withdrew afterwards. That's closer to the top 1/3 than top 1/2.

I thought your photo was lively and interesting.

In reply to:

JerryShots: I'm going out on a limb here and guessing you just don't bother with rules in general, right?

I mean - How many flowers is the right amount of flowers in a "Single Flower" contests..?
What causes this kind of thing, if I could ask?

This entry will be adjusted or switched to something more in line with a "single flower" . The entrant has been notified and given an option to find a solution that is more fitting.

On photo Socks in the Cat challenge II challenge (10 comments in total)

Look at those eyes! What a strong entry - and I don't know how you managed to get the shot. I think this one was hard to capture; cat's being cats are not as cooperative as , say dogs. So, Congratulations!!

Navathej K: May I know why the rule of square format is put in place ? any specific reason at all ?

I agree, but that's also what makes a challenge a challenge.

Last weeks was a dog challenge, and I think almost all of them looked great cropped square. This one is more of a challenge just to follow the square rule. I also run 2 sets of challenges , and the other has no rules at all :)

Yes, I want to see an effort to enter the challenge. Often, people read a challenge theme, and pull a "best" photo from years ago out of their library and enter. I hope with a request to frame as square, they will look harder at that library and think about how to re-create a composition. I think cropping photo's to specific geometry can make a big difference in how you see the end result. I hope people will enjoy the added requirement and think of it as part of the art, rather than just a rule.

I just added a photo. Maybe there was a problem yesterday. Try again - the challenge is open. IF it fails we need to contact the sit owner.
