[/i] How is something crooked seen as DNMC?

It is a bit tough to decipher, but here is how I read it from the beginning:

Twisted perspective refers to the view from behind the camera (the perspective from which something is viewed), not the subject in front of the camera no matter how crooked or twisted it is.

--- or ---

To meet the challenge, it is the perspective that needs to be twisted, not the subject.

edit to add: A relevant definition of perspective: "the state of existing in space before the eye (or, in our case, before the camera)

Wow, no wonder my score is so bad. I spent the entire week trying to take pictures of crooked things. Never occurred to me it was as easy as tilting my camera. I could have been done in less than an hour under five minutes. A thousand pardons.

Have I ever said I hate descriptions? The title of the challenge plus the editing rule set should be enough. And I know I should read every bit and click on every possible thing to see if there is something hidden for me to find and then find the forum discussions and read all those to see what's going to fly and what will crash, but frankly, where's the fun in that?

ETA corrected - see strike out. Forgot for a moment that the rule set was Minimal.

You forgot to add that you also need to work out which way the main voters are going to vote and then shoot for that. LOL! You know...follow the popularity group!!! NOT! Shoot for yourself and remember....that in the long run, the popularity group are gong to be stuck behind the counter serving fries with your Mcdonalds order whilst the outside-the-box/creative ones will be holding exhibitions for the masses.

This topic (challenge descriptions) has come up in another thread. This challenge is a perfect example of how a challenge name and description can be downright confusing. We've had a FOUR TILTED challenges ...

So crooked can't possibly be TILTED 5 can it? As far as I'm concerned, a crooked subject meets the challenge - a disorienting, crooked POV does as well ... I think in cases like this, voters should give the benefit of the doubt.
