In this case it would be when each individual voter thinks it does ...

When you can't jump across it? When you can't cross it by wading? I'll know it when I see it anyway :-)

When does a pond become a lake?

In Scotland we have 'lochs' (lakes) and 'lochens' which are smaller. Is a lochen too big for the challenge?

Just photograph water, facripesake :-) Let the voters decide if it's big water or small water. Gawd help ya if you make a pond look oceanic, though making an ocean look pond-like would be a neat trick :-)

POND:

A small body of still water formed naturally or by artificial means.
"a garden pond".

Wouldn't you just have to photograph the Atlantic from the west coast of the British Isles?

This definition continues:
synonyms: pool, puddle, lake, tarn, reservoir, waterhole, lagoon, inland sea, swim; stew;
loch, lochan; lough; pothole, bayou, tank; moana; literarymere, plash

Maybe should have given a miss to the streams and used a description that the body of water needs to be fully included in the photo. So if you could take photos from the earth's orbit you could include some smaller seas and very big lakes like Lake Geneva but otherwise only small bodies of water would fit our lenses ;)

Very big lakes are not ponds. Please keep it simple. We see photos in nearly every challenge of an ocean or lake, but not the descriptions that I intended all along.
