This is how I interpret it...

Windows (the glass kind) · Advanced Washing
This week it's Art's windows. Your challenge is to visit Art's estate and wash his windows. Make 'em shine!

Now I go cleanin' windows to earn an honest bob
For a nosy parker it's an interestin' job

Now it's a job that just suits me
A window cleaner you would be
If you can see what I can see
When I'm cleanin' windows

Ladies nighties I have spied
I've often seen what goes inside
When I'm cleanin' windows

Would stain glass windows count ? We have some really beautiful windows in our area of stained glass windows

I am kinda getting confused now but that's not hard to do LOL

Yes. Any image that has a window as a primary subject will meet the challenge. Finding an interesting picture of a window is the real challenge.

I'm not doing too well on the "meet the challenge descriptions" lately, but I'd say any picture with a glass window in it will work.

I sit in my dining room and take pictures of birds in the tree outside the window. Since there is a window between my camera and the bird, does that count?

The DNMC police squad here will want to "see" the window, but you might be able to arrange that:)

Does it need to be a literal window? How about just an opening (that's not a door) that you can see other things through?

How do you expect to get a usdeful answer without polling the entire pool of potential voters. Every voter will have their own interpretation, and the opinions you get in a thread like this will not necessarily reflect how the voters will respond.

Actually, I think this is one of the clearest descriptions we've had -- it should be a window in a building which has glass in it, and the window itself should be the subject of (or at least play a prominent role in) the composition. It is likely that anything else will get a positivc response fromm a small minority who appreciate out-of-the box or lateral thinking, and be dinged by the majority who vote the description more literally.

In my opinion, of course ... a review of my own entries may reveal how much I care how the voters vote ... :-)

When I initially read the challenge description (albeit not very closely) I thought building windows were mentioned as an example of the type of windows that could be used. Re-reading the description the building part seems more like a mandate for the type of windows. So, now I have pictures that prominently feature windows (the glass kind) but are not the building kind -- so likely not worth entering. Yes, I am just another idiot that failed to carefully read the description before heading out to shoot. I bet you are tired of hearing that story aren't you, Mr. Smarty-Pants?

To tell the truth I didn't understand that description... that's why I didn't take a shot for this challenge.

I'm confused as to how people can be confused about what a window is.

I think the point of the description's specificity was to eliminate the several eye ("window on the soul") macro entries, or a metaphoric "wondow on the future"-type interpretation, but to have just to shoot a literal window which has/had glass in it.

Ok, I should have asked before :)

What if my window is missing its glass...

The glass reference was to specify the type of window. The condition of the window, is immaterial. Apparently, as stated before, it's a literal and not a figurative, metaphorical window.
