On challenge Natural meadows (9 comments in total)

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

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

RuthC: This is NOT a Damselfly, but an iridescent blue scarab beetle: Hoplia coerulea.

Thanks RuthC.
Sorry about that, the reason is that I had sorted out two pics for the 'Iridescent Challenge' and one was a Damsel Fly !!!
Got it all mixed up,...Doh !!!!!
It was your 'Intriuging' post that prompted me to concoct this for entry!!
I don't suppose it is possible to edit this now so I will just have to suffer the comments 😊
Thanks for the ID I had no idea what it was but it seems they are pretty common in France.
Regards.
