On photo Acrobats in the Your City - Builders challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

Midwest: This is a really good photo - and two people gave it the worst possible rating, 1/2 star? Pathetic sandbaggers.

Well, when all is said and done, it's still a excellent image with a very creative composition.

I'm afraid one of those was me Midwest. Certainly not sandbagging. Yes it's a great shot...but if we have rules I'm a bit old fashioned and feel they should be followed. I make a point of doing so and so do most others and one of the rules here was 'No location=disqualification'. Sorry to be harsh but why should someone get away with breaking the rules of entry just because they have a good shot?

Edward48: Quick question for the host...I'm assuming that when assessing the entries we also take into account the quality of the headline/title? Would that be correct?

Thanks
Mike

Thank you.

In reply to:

Dutch Newchurch: The host is not able to vote, but I would have chosen this image as one of the best in this challenge. It is a simple image, yet powerful and eloquent in its symbolism of the challenge theme. Commended by the host.

Thanks Dutch.
What a nice surprise when I checked out the challenge this morning. These little crosses are so small and simple but they mean a great deal to so many people.

Thanks again
Mike

Brilliant!
I always said that poor old Leonardo was a bit of a dull plodder without much of a clue. You've proved that with the right tools and a bit more talent he could have done so much better, poor fellow!

On photo Still life with yerba mate green tea in the Tea as an art challenge (2 comments in total)

Hi DrWu and thanks.

Where I live (UK) yerba mate is marketed, branded and sold almost everywhere as a herbal tea. Much like other herbal teas, which are enjoyed by millions of people as a tea drink.

I think 'Tea as an Art' is a broad enough subject to encompass herbal teas, of which there are a great many.

Regards
Mike

On photo South London rooftops in the Your City - Rooftops challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Martin. You got it spot on! Local knowledge?
It was taken from a train window between Waterloo East and London Bridge station. This view isn't properly visible any more as they've put up barriers along the sides of the track as part of the huge modernisation works now going on.

In reply to:

Edward48: Just a quick question streetphoto. When you say no winners of previous challenges, do you mean the photograph or the photographer?
Thanks.

Well, as Buddy Holly sang...I guess it doesn't matter anymore!

Don't you just love public forums? 6 posts and already, without a shred of evidence, libellous posts pointing the finger at the victim.

In reply to:

doto41: Haven't looked at challenges in ages but am very glad I didn't miss this one. From the good old days with the LX3, but then you were always able to make your tool sing, and create poetry in vision - well done!

Thank you my friend. Yes I very much enjoyed the LX cameras and the old Panny forum. Apart from you Dov, I don't suppose I'd know anyone there now.
