The former 5th place image in the "Potholes, Detours, Obstructions" challenge has been disqualified because the photographer hied off on a 6-week journey not anticipating that a 6.2 score would make Top 5. We'll sometimes cut a little slack in a situation like this, but 6 weeks is way too long, and the photographer realized that when contacting us.

SO... Congrats to our new HM!

You guys are just sooooooo cold! LOL!!!

Yeah, the lower Top Ten scores are kind of disconcerting with some of the more obtuse themes. Yet the more obtuse themes are the most fun in my opinion.

Sorry, Wendy, these days I enter the originals before I go away whatever the score. I hope you are not up for a double whammy!

Jeb, why don't you enter some of the challenges with obtuse themes or, in fact, any challenges at all

Unfortunately, the next 5th-place image in line has been DQd as well, because the photographer's workflow is to convert his NEF (RAW) files to DNG during import, and thus he left himself with no unaltered orginal to submit for validation. So, once again, congratulations to our new HMs... there are TWO of them actually since there was a tie at that position after the smoke died down :-)

That's a bummer. I saw the validation request pop up on my screen before I saw my entry appear on the front page. I was puzzled by the request thinking someone had requested validation questioning whether I had illegally manipulated my entry. Therefore Bear, please disregard my question about validation that I added to my description in the validation. I now understand.
