Huh? Obviously your definition is flying WAY over my head.

It was called a joke - but cleary a bad one . I think we all have to give every entry the benefit of the doubt and judge by quality of image and quality of story, etc and not worry so much if we think it might be set up or staged.

"Take your camera with you everywhere this week and capture a candid moment."

Mmmm, I must have missed the part where they added to this challenge rules and explained that a candid moment was more than just capturing a part of my day. Apparently a candid has to be of a stranger, an adult only, never an animal, child, or anyone who happens to be looking at the camera. I think if people are going to say DNMC then the challenge needs to be more specific about what it says to do. How can any unplanned, unrehearsed shot, taken on the spur of the moment, not be fit into this description above?

But at least you got a comment. I see so many 'Where are all the comments' and I wouldn't call that a comment'.

Well people's (and I am not aiming this at any ONE person), get off your high horses and start commenting. You might be surprised at how satisfied you feel at the end. And it might stop you from complaining. If you want something...then start giving it first.

It does, in my opinion. But does it look spontaneous, unplanned, or unrehearsed? That's the key. Perception is reality.

Now, the rest of this is not directed at Jewelly specifically, but to everyone who is bitching and moaning and arguing over this crap:

I haven't seen this much angst over a challenge topic since the uber-lame "snow isn't ice" debate last year. Get over it! All this self-righteous indignance and finger wagging and whatnot is making you ALL look like spoiled brats. If the voters don't understand your masterpiece or how your photo of an abandoned shoe dressed up like the Easter bunny and propped up under studio lights could possibly be classified as a candid, then you simply failed to convey candidness, PERIOD. EverythingYOU know about your photo is IRRELEVANT. PERCEPTION IS REALITY.

I resent being told how to vote, your assumption that my interpretation ("my" meaning "everyone to whom you direct your generic rants") is wrong, being "challenged" to vote differently when "challenged" is really code for "...and we look down our high and mighty noses at anyone who won't" and amounts to a soft form of bullying. Sit down, shut up, and eat your damn lima beans accept that you just didn't hit it this time.

Score: 5.32 - and I'm fine with that!

Good bye sweet 7. Hello closet dwelling motherfu**ers with lives so pathetic they can't believe a candid shot could be anything other than staged.

Don't know if you're responding to me. My point is, just because you haven't seen something in your town doesn't mean it's not happening all the time somewhere else nor does it mean if you are looking at a picture of it that it was a fake/setup/staged shot.

Did you enter?


Hmmm....


Yes of course I entered, I see my pic in the top left corner but no info at the bottom of the pic. When I click it, it shows 3 comments but no votes or views.

I have'nt been on this site for a few months. Did something change? Are there new rules?
