Pasta is looking good. Sounds good right now too.
I am just not feeling the love on this one tonight. I guess I am not DPC enough on this one. But that was not why I chose the pic I did. I don't expect everybody to get it.
With a lucky 13 votes at 13 minutes past the hour and nowhere to go but up (it was 4.25 recently):

Just went through the images, I wasn't expecting a zoo/wildlife challenge. When I think of flora/fauna, I think of native, or transplant, species to a given region. I was looking forward to the various species from around the world. Anyway, just one man's take on the topic and there are some great images in the Fauna challenge...glad I'm in Flora. Good luck!

Yeah, I think my image is suffering from what is surrounding it. I guess some have a narrow view of what an 'animal' is, because that's the only reason I can see for my image scoring lower than my atrociously bad abstract shot so far.

Well I just got a one. Trade your for one of your sevens! 4.14 now.
Im guilty of the zoo thing. Mine is the one with the animal in it.

I think Zoo shots are def legit for this challenge based on the description though I must say I'd prefer if the 'animal' challenges would be divided into Zoo vs. non-zoo images, because aside from outstanding images such as ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1005/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_772713.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1005/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_772713.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and others that in some way reference the fact that the animal is confined OR are extraordinarily creative, I'd prefer it if zoo images would not be compared alongside wild animal shots, b/c they're just apples & oranges.

Exactly my thought, you're not alone in this. definition of fauna is: the animals characteristic of a region, period, or special environment. It's wildlife in it's own envirement, not caged species and/or pets. Same goes for flora.

Fauna refers to animal life in general. I consider zoo shots to be perfectly admissible for such a challenge. Wildlife is where I say a big NO to zoo shots because to me it has to be a wild animal, by definition.
04/01/2009 04:37:47 AM · #23
Errrr.....in reply to the zoo argument...I thought we were meant to photograph for a challenge on DPC...and the challenge on DPC for Fauna states -

Details: Fauna generally refers to animal life.

Where in that statement does it say it has to be in its own environment?????????????????

And for the record...mine is not a zoo shot (no zoo within 300 kms of me) and is not a domestic animal...it is a wild animal in its own environment....and it is tanking in score...so peoples...get off the argument bench and go and vote...oh...and while you are at it...how about you enjoy the images...sheez!

On it boss!

Not that anyone cares what my opinion is, but I agree with Judi and Delta_6. I am in Flora, but when I voted Fauna, I did really enjoy the images and I voted for animal life in general. With an average score given of 7.2961 I'd say that you guys rocked Fauna!!!!! There are some awesome photos here and quite a few of my 10's and 9's are zoo shots!

I used to get real literal on my interpretation of a challenge, but I have started to really see the true artistic and technical value of the photos and I greatly enjoy a different point of view when it comes to challenge interpretation.
