.. and now a question for this challenge.
What rules apply re the size of the image?
From the rules: "no larger than 700 KB (716,800 bytes) (300 KB for challenges prior to October 22nd, 2014).".
So, do we enter the image in 2015 and therefor in the large format? Or do the rules apply, i.e if you enter an image from last year June it has to be small, and after October it can be large?

And another question, can you take an image from last year and edit it for this challenge, or does it have to be completely finished (except the sizing I assume) last year?

Oh shucks ... I have egg on my face .. :-(.
A very belated "Thank you" to the jury for the HM for my "Leafy Wings". I never saw it until I started to look at the forum for the new "Art of 2014" challenge!! Oh my, ..... how embarrassing ...

Thanks so much to the jury for doing such a wonderful job and congratulations to the winners!
I wish you guys would regroup and do a 'free study' every now and then!

Thanks a lot guys - for the time, work and the bling.

Never expected much although I obviously had reasons to submit the photo.

I will find time go through all photos and comments.

** cheers Nick. Love your photograph. Well done.

Double the pleasure for sure ... the general voters get pleasure in seeing results from their peers, and then another group get some nice introspect from a select panel of word smiths.

It's kind of like a resurrection of the 'Critique Club' on steroids. :-)

I think it would be fun in the future to have a list of potential jurors posted (those who want to do this sort of thing) and then have a general vote by the DPC community on selecting the final panel of jurors from the pool of interested participants.

Cheers Jury people!! Nice to be up there amongst such a talented crew, especially that Az guy!

It is an interesting exercise in understanding how others see a photograph, especially when its yours and know the answers.

It would be great to see future challenges in this format from time to time.

A huge thank you to all jury members and others involved. I look forward the "Art Of" challenges every years, for the photos and for the jury comments... truly honour that my entry received an HM splat, from jury members I greatly respect, and alongside photographers and photographs I personally rate far higher than I see myself and my work. It's because of challenges like this, and the effort of the jury and the commenters and those that enter that I love DPC. Despite it's flaws, DPC is a great place to explore photography, and grow as a photographer, and for what this community has done with my photography in my time here, I say "THANK YOU". <music playing... producers gesturing to get off the stage>

Thanks for taking the time to offer such fine interpretations. Thanks for the HM Splatty too!

Thanks to the jury for their time and hard work. It's a treat to have comments like this to read through. Great job everybody!
03/10/2014 11:37:19 AM · #12
I love reading over the jury comments. Thanks to all for the work that went into this.

A novel way of giving the awards. I looked at my top two choices and wondered about a shot that was not loved by any juror and it was a photo of one of the jurors! A very hard work and very well done; certainly worth putting the thoughts into words.
Congrats to all, medalists and jurors.

Thanks jury for the hard work, I'm honored to be included. Congratulations to all the winners.

Thank you all for the hard work and very thoughtful comments. The HM is surprising and appreciated.

A glitch in the system. Bits and bytes gone bad. What the hell is this anyway? Is it even a photograph? Will it be disqualified? If it is what I think it is, then I think it was possible to do without breaking any rules at all. I saw something like it before on another photography site. Someone with a broken Lumix digital camera was getting all sorts of wonderfully wild results from a bad sensor. It's called glitch art, and I can defend it on the same grounds that I can defend all those "darkroom accidents" I've seen presented as art. This is digital working in a similar way; the photographer has lost control to the underlying science. Sure you can do anything in post, but who could or would do this exactly? ------- I don't mean to suggest that any random mess of pixels will stand up as art. The "photographer" here had to look at it and see something appealing. The title suggests as much. And there are fragments of a scene here, so it's not totally random. For instance, there appears to be a sun or defocused light in the upper left. For my own part, the first thing I saw in this was the face of John Lennon. But now I'm thinking it's Warhol.

First of all I would like to thank you for your time and speculations. "What the hell is this anyway?" It started as a drawing of the ocean and my longing to be back in it surfing. I took a photo of my drawing and worked with it in Elements 10. When I did this back in early 2013 I was so excited about what I could do in Photoshop to express myself in a different direction than in my drawings, paintings, or ceramics. I enjoy using photography to take my art in different directions. "Will it be disqualified?" I wondered that myself one year later after I started listening to the participants on D>P>C> when they jokingly suggested that I should read the rules and adhere to them before I enter a challenge, as I may be disqualified. I even wondered, this time around if my submission would be challenged for validation, and indeed someone has challenged it. I'm curious who the jurors are, and who challenged it, but in the end it doesn't matter. I find it an honor to be recognized and discussed at all. I began this with a pure feeling back in 2013 and I understand the rules better this year than I did last year. Oh!!! When I was in NYC, I met Andy Warhol at the Gallery I was working in. I dropped a red marker on his shirt and we stared at each other and then laughed out loud...if you can imagine that. I also saw John Lennon from time to time on the west side....walking along Central park....funny......

A little interesting. The loose crayon drawing look in the lower left adds a lot for me.

Thanks for the comment. Yes...crayons and pencil.

Some interesting shapes and movements, and i like the idea of 'glitch art' mentioned earlier, but i'm not that keen on the more pixelated computer look really.

Thanks for your observations. Yes...it is about movement.

I think a fun and clever piece, I can actually make out two of the blighters. A brave contribution in this crowd, but nonetheless has technical attributes that put it in the running. I like how it challenges the viewer to take it more seriously, to abandon clinging to traditional photographic interpretations, a reminder that photography is subject to a youth culture biomorphism and looks great on a t shirt as well as an art challenge.

Thank you for your observations and comments. I don't feel brave...I just follow where I am led. The spirit in each of us is ageless.

'80s explosion. I'm having flashbacks, and none of them are pretty. There's a decent amount of chaos vs. order, which is one of my favorite themes. The seemingly graphically produced section of the top left, the organic scribbles below, a fun s-curve, exploding highlights and deteriorating resolution. It's a bar code on acid. Or it's a bar code and I'm on acid. It's jarring in places, soothing in others, and worth a lot more time than it probably receives.

Thanks very much for the personal connection shared. Chaos vs. order = beauty in nature. Soothing and jarring.....like the espresso I drank the other morning.

I keep hearing the Steve Miller Band. I think that's a good thing but I'm not quite sure...maybe some ELO too. It's a cool funky sort of image.
Thanks for the comparison. An old admirer of mine called me his "Quick Silver Girl".

This one didn't do a lot for me. Too much neon, I think. Reminds me of the old blacklight paintings popular in the 70's.
Thanks for your comment. If you are old enough to remember those paintings and not like them, then you just might be older than me.... ;-)

I love how violently unphotographic this is. This is photographic Fauvism. It is harsh uncompromise. But at the same time it has a classical S curve embracing a perfect circle of light. A challenging photo. It challenges presumption after presumption.

Thank you very much for your astute comment.
If we do not challenge the waves we are tossed and turned, sucked under by the tides and surf, our faces and bodies dragged along the shore, scraped by the rough shells, sand and stones.
When we challenge the surf, we can learn to ride the waves. The beauty of the dance with nature becomes our purpose, and as artists and photographers we are blessed to be able to share our love. Talking with nikonjeb about energies, love and being, he has often repeated, recently, that we do not find ourselves.......we create ourselves.

Thank you all jurors for your time, shared energies and observations. I am honored by your notice.

I appreciate the honorable mention and awesome write up more than the blue ribbon, thank you. FYI, I took this from a high hill called Steptoe Butte, I did use my monster lens with a teleconverter. If you haven't been there, here's a Link I will go back in May to catch the "green" humps.
Thanks again,
Frank "Caba"

Thanks for the effort. Interesting picks... I'll spend time reading the comments.
