Is this some dummy run for BBC Nature Photographer of the Year contest? The rules make me think so. Do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that. Who cares?

Aidan Jaros Grilli: Have the application closed?

Hasn't even started. Wait till Jan 16. Are you a professional? This is for professionals only, though I don't really know whether they need any proof for that.

On photo Superman in the Off to the Races challenge (1 comment in total)

This image was my top pick and I had voted 5 out of 5 for this. I am surprised that it finished much lower than a few way less deserving shots. This photograph has so many positives going for it. Congratulations in any case for being in the top ten.

On photo mount kanchendzonga in the Quad split challenge (12 comments in total)

Having seen this scene in real life umpteen number of times, let me state the reason for this apparent contradiction. The first photo is taken in diffused light just prior to the sun rays actually directly hit the peak. That's why there is hardly any shadow in the first one. Incidentally east is to the right of the scene.
Also, strictly speaking this is not the actual peak of Mt Kanchendzonga. It is a part of the larger massif. The name of this particular peak is Mt Narsing, which is to the east of the famous peak of Kanchendzonga. That small technical error in no way takes away any credit from the photographer.

I would have thought this was from the lot more approachable and friendly neighborhood Peling and then some good old crop !! Please correct me if I am wrong. Ideal subject for a quad. Congratulations on your win.

This is a fabulous shot. Those who have tried taking such an image would only know what it takes to get this perfect moment of truth.
