On photo SDIM5309 in the Sigma Challenge challenge (3 comments in total)

Fascinating, the prints are not unlike the aboriginal hand prints found in Australia and France on rock faces etc.
Nice shot, great that you noticed the hands.
Cheers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Amusing shot, looks like menacing 'Minions'. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Pity it wasn't taken on a Sigma camera but at least it was a Sigma lens. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜‰

Fantastic image, the handprints are really interesting, I assume that they are very ancient.

In reply to:

Dutch Newchurch: There is emotion in this image, anger, and a story too. It also captures a memory of a tree in a personal document that earns you โ€˜Commended by the hostโ€™, with full bragging rights.

Thanks Dutch, I appreciate your comment very much.
Best wishes, Stuart.

No 'human element' exclusion was specified in the rules as far as I could see.
Think the Host, Bren is just nit picking.

GioVaVe: There are still four-five pics with human elements that were not disqualified......

Thank you GioVaVe, relieved to find that I am not the only one to think this.
Cheers.

whisky: Dear Bren,
Thank you for your disqualification of my entry in your Natural Meadows challenge.
Knowing how you are, I tried as best I could to meet your specific criteria for entry but was amazed to be DQ'd. 'The meadow is not natural...i.e there are human elements in it.'
Meadow is defined as 'a piece of grassland, especially one used for hay', the word derived from old English or German meaning mow.
I would point out that most of our planet has evidence and signs of human activity or presence including beautiful New Zealand.
Looking over the entries there are probably several which have 'human elements' present or would not be mowable for fodder.
My entry was of centuries old traditional meadowland with even a stream valley and certainly no humans present.
You are the Host so you can make whatever interpretation you like but at least I can happily assure you I will again never enter any of your future Challenges.
Have a good' un.
Bye.

P.S. Anyone who is interested can view my disqualified entry, 'Buttercup Meadow', in my DPR Gallery and make their own mind up.

Cheers.

Very like the old Tamron SP 2X flat field convertor for Adaptall series lenses.
Handy and compact for occasional use.
