Challenge: Team Sport Action (Basic Editing I)
Collection: Nature
Camera: Olympus E-20P
Location: 1
Date: Sep 11, 2004
Galleries: Digital Art, Diptych / Triptych
Date Uploaded: Sep 11, 2004

Boy, What a mistake. I was considering using this picture in the Master's Challenge and had uploaded 2 versions of the picture. One version I put in the Master's Challenge and the other one in the Action Sports Challenge so that I could see how each looked online. I forgot to unsubmit this version! Now, I not only got killed in this challenge but I can't use the picture for the Master's Challenge either. To make matters worse my camera is at the shop for repairs and may not be back in time for me to take a picture for the Master's Challenge :(. The only consolation is getting to read all the comments people made on this picture. It apparently received quite a bit of attention. Thanks to all for your comments.

too bad....this was definatly a great pic for the masters challenge...you would have had a 7-9 from me for this one....see I told you that it was entered in the wrong challenge

If your cameras in the shop rent one....if you can pull off another pic this quality it would be great...and what a comeback story too.

This cracks me up!

...did you pm the same explanation to everybody that you sent to me? I hope you didn't go through all that trouble.

Anyhow, some of the reactions are priceless!

Great photo...I think you entered it into the wrong challenge though! (3) for a great pic that doesnt fit the challenge at all.

I'm sorry, but I don't get it.
maybe hiking? but, I don't see a hiker...

the title says it all...nice landscape, though. looks like a lovely place. i'm sure you'd will never forget that magical morning when
the sun slipped past the horizon's grasp and whispered,
"I'm here, you're here, it's a brand new day."
the distant clouds, the foggy shrouds, the vision
called and captured, sang, "I'm yours to take away."

This is not a photo of a team sport.

What is the sport being played in this shot?

Beautiful, but completely in the wrong challenge.

Did you perhaps enter this in the wrong category?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Don't know how this fits the challenge. It is a nice picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2004 09:05:04 PM
nice pic, but what challenge is this for?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2004 08:21:39 PM
How is this a team sport... ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2004 08:18:47 AM
1 ? 1? Are you telling us what to vote since there is no team sport action? It's too nice an image to "go for the brown" - if that's your intent.

Nice shot, but how does it fit in this challenge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/17/2004 05:28:26 PM
You have captured the essence of team sports in this photo. The quiet reflectivity that the players must endure before and after the game is well represented. Simply brilliant!!!

nice shot, but no subject matter

Nice photo! Great color and composition. Doesn't fit team action. Enter it in the wrong challenge accidently?

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2004 10:20:55 PM
No team, no sports, no action. Don't really care for it as a landscape shot either. Nothing to focus on.

Sunset? That's a very interesting team sport....not!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2004 06:44:10 PM
its hard to find some team sport action in here however.... its a very nice photo you have there anyway i may just look at cropping off a bit from the top proportion wise to improve the overall wow effect but thats still one very nice photo!

Ok is that why you titled your photograph 1. I just donít get it; no action, not a team sport, not even a sport. I donít know if you made a mistake entering the wrong picture or what.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2004 01:23:49 AM

09/16/2004 12:54:13 AM
capture the action of a team sport--maybe you uploaded the wrong picture?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2004 12:21:06 AM
No, I'm not going to give you a 1. I know you want one but you're not going to get one from me. It doesn't meet the challenge but it is nice enough for a 2.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 11:56:38 PM

Beautiful photo, but what's the team sport?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 05:37:32 PM
I give up .... I don't see the sports connection. Are you testing to see if a beautiful image will score well even if it's off topic? It is beautiful, but I do take the challenge guidelines seriously. So if there is a sports connection, let me know and I'll rescore this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 03:14:16 PM
No team, no sport. Nice sunset only.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 01:54:48 PM
I'm not sure exactly how this sunset is supposed to indicate a team sport? The sunset itself is nice, but a little to hazy with not a lot of color for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 12:43:28 PM
I don't see the team sport angle. I could be missing something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 12:36:53 PM
Beautiful team sport action shot...with a little more team and a tad of action, along with the removal of the non-sport elements, this could have earned a 10!

Nice shot, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 12:36:35 PM
Hello!!!! Team Sport Action???? are you kidding us? --1--
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 12:25:22 PM
This is a beautiful pic, deserves a 9 (I never give 10's), BUTwhy in Team Sports?
It doesn't meet the challenge at all, so I gave it a 1 (the first one I have ever given).
Maybe your motive it to prove a point: that the challenge wording DOES mean what is says, i.e.; a dog entry in a cat contest. Sorry, it's pretty, but no sport.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 11:52:22 AM
How did You guess it :) ? Nice view anyway...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 11:15:02 AM
Ya lost me on this one... Can you explain what team sport this represents?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 10:47:28 AM
OK..... so just what do you expect to get with this photo? Yes it is a beautiful shot of a sunset, and in challenge where this is the theme you may have gotten a high mark and done quite well. However, explain to me how this fits in with "Team Sport Action"???

for Challenge: Sunsets 7
for Challenge: Team Sport Action 1
