LOL! I was thinking the exact same thing :P

I wonder why they put "must" in the challenge description but didn't make it an extra rule. Well, at least the voters who read it will have voting guidance on non-color shots.

I think I caught lightning in a bottle last time around. I'm not sure I can match that again.

here is Color Portrait I
03/12/2007 05:47:01 AM · #10
Should this be taken literally? Meaning that the portrait needs to be colorful?

Yes, it should be taken literally, but you're only half-correct.
It doesn't have to be colourful, but it should be a colour photo ;)
lets get anal with the descriptions! LOL

Am I the first to notice this should be Color Portrait III and not II?

Wait a minute, I'm thinking of Color Studio portrait II.

I didn't even know there were these parallel challenges. (There's even a Color Studio Portrait I...)

Challenge Details: Your submission must be in color (no B&W, duotones, sepia, etc.)

I'd DNMC any photo that even has a selection in anything but colour.

Wow, this SUCKS....something I think I am actually GOOD at....and all my studio equipment is packed up for my MOVE to Kansas. Shucks, shucks, shucks! They couldn't have announced this last week? Or next week? This is the week of my MOVE! Aaaargh!!!!

I think this is important in that this particular challenge doesn't call for a studio meaning an outdoor portrait or an environmental portrait would be good but I fear they may be met with DNMC if it is not obviously in a studio.

Don't you love DPC? Man, lately I've just had an overdose of collective angst meeting the challenge causes. There are days where I just want to say, "enough"!

I wouldn't even have thought about giving an environmental portrait a DNMC. But to tell you the truth, I'm not even sure I noticed that the challenge I ribboned in was "studio" portrait. I think I got lucky there.

color - no B&W, duotones, sepia, etc.

portrait - a likeness of a person, esp. of the face, as a painting, drawing, or photograph: a gallery of family portraits.

that's it.

why make a fuss?

Sure. You can do whatever you want with the photo as long as it meets the Advanced Editing ruleset. Now, on the other hand, if you want a decent score... :D

edit - typo.
