Lucky I read the forums earlier and saw 21_F.gif pamb Reminder: Light on White VI is MINIMAL EDITING. So Thanks!

Helped at editing but did not help to set the camera a bit differently with more sharpness contrast etc

Wow. Must be a different 255 255 255 than the one I'm familiar with.

I may actually, finally have my first brown.

I just went through all the entries and scored it. Heaven knows, I am not a troll nor a purest when it comes to art. However, the instruction is clear; "on a WHITE background..." not pastel colored or gray or any other form but white. In my opinion, a clear winner in any other but this challenge, the person will know who I am referring too due to personal feedback, was marked down too. Yes, a winner... but not following the most basic rule.

More a question, since when is light on white equated to soft focus and limited DoF?

You have given an average score of 5.3544. Yes, 4 X 10s and at least 12% at 7 plus. Terrible for me with an average score of 6 plus in most challenges. Sorry, really sorry.

Wow. I had several images that I took for this challenge but ended up not entering them, because I felt that the objects had too much color... Looks like I would've been in plenty of company. There are many that DNMC.

My shot is directly out of my camera and in .jpg as required. Which was very difficult for me. I was having Photoshop withdrawal. :)

Good grief Charlie Brown. Are you people who are voting the same people who tried entering?
03/04/2013 09:21:09 AM · #18
Sounds like I'm not the only one who hasn't found favour with the voting public. I've obviously missed the mark with this one.
03/04/2013 09:24:44 AM · #19

Another penny in the pee-pot: The entrees in general lack initiative, creativity and basic skills. We have lost so much of the basics as almost anything can be fixed in PS, LR and Topaz et al. Please forgive me But I think we are far more skilled at post processing and image manipulation than being photographers. Me included. We will have to find a balance. Build the basics and polish the higher skills.

Chow, see you again in about 4 weeks. Love you my fiends!

I thought I recognized yours, perhaps I was wrong.

Well said, Penny. Yes, the challenge title was clear. And yes, the challenge was tough to shoot for and made even more difficult by the editing rule set. I think many tried and found their efforts lacking. The alternatives in that case were to enter their best effort or to not enter.
03/04/2013 09:56:24 AM · #24
Looks like I'm very much in the minority here, as I am really impressed with the submissions. There's some really excellent stuff from what I can see.
03/04/2013 10:02:04 AM · #25
Well, I definitely posted a stinker, 4.607.
