What happened to the rollercoaster photo?

I really think the DQ's or removed photos need to be mentioned in an admin note. It just seems sorta funky that a photo gets canned and disappears like a a dissident in Old Russia :-O

And if that photo was photoshopped..thats strange because that shot could be done all day long traditionally.

Dude..I know from where I speak :-)

I have had several (3 or 4), requested for DQ.

Some folks need to spend less time asking for a DQ and more time realizing the possibilities.

Sorry to get pissy on this... especially if the rollercoaster DID cheat. It''s just I always get this weird feeling that there are a group of people here that spend all their time getting more bent about how they cant figure out how to shoot something rather than admiring intereting stuff. :-/

The rollercoaster shot for instance... could have been photographed in a building..with the person catching the face in a window and the rollercoaster outside.

Not to say this is how it is or even if it was a DQ for editing..but I didn''t give it a second thought.other than to say.."Cool! wish that were mine!" :-)

When I looked at the roller coaster photo there seemed to be some sort of border - a few pixels that were lighter than the rest of the photo - on the outside. I didn't recommend it for DQ, but I guess someone did.

shhh you don't know what you're messing with .... drew/langdon will have us all wearing concrete overshoes : )

no seriously, just because someone requests a DQ, doesn't mean the picture GETS DQ'd. it gets considered, internally. and if it breaks a really concrete rule, like borders, for example, then there is no choice.

as for an admin note: this has been discussed in the past, and it was decided that people who's shots get DQ'd should be spared the embarrassment unless they're specifically interested in having that made public. It's up to them.

it's true, hehe, that there are some people out there who really do seem to be hunting for DQ's. . . however, as stated, just because they request it doesn't mean it happens.

See magnetic..that's why you are a moderator and I am one of the screaming asses..ermmm..masses :-P

I know some folks reading this might say..there goes hokie again..wigging out..DQ's are just one of my numerous hot buttons :-)

I remember seeing that some photo resizing tools add weird borders and I think on a learning site we need to be able to help those folks. Plus, a DQ for a software screw-up is really the most horrible way to get rid of my favorite photo this week :-P

The photo was disqualified because it merged two photographs together with photoshop. The author made no bones about it, as he said it in his details. It was just a case of not reading the rules. He's welcome to make his identity public, should he decide to do so.

I notice another pic was DQed as well,.. the drawing of a face.... On another note... man is my pic getting hammered, I started out thinking wow this is going to do great, then bam free fall, oh well constructive comments atleast...:)

My Fear photo is getting a lot of comments about beeing "within the rules" or not . Of course it is! First I felt flatter but then I FEARED that some of the viewers might score it lower assuming I cheated.

I think we should always assume the picture we're scoring is "within the rules" until proven otherwise, no?

Thanks Drew for the explanantion.

As I said before in a post. I am probably just more touchy than necessary on the DQ stuff.

This simple note is all I was getting at to help other folks understand why a photo is gone..no need to have the photographer known unless he wants to I agree 100%
