Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: 2-Second Exposure (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: Peguche Waterfall
Date: Mar 15, 2006
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/2 sec
Galleries: Landscape, Water
Date Uploaded: Mar 15, 2006

This is a waterfall in Ecuador after a big rain. It was hard to take this because I had to climb slippery rocks and set up the tripod. There was also lots of mist (so I had to constantly wipe my lens)

Editing may be a little off because it was done on an "old" laptop :)

Thanks everyone for the blue and comments, and I apologize that its not 2secs.

You left out Fact 3: "...Afterall, why should he have a photo DQed if it wasn't a DQable offense?" Check the rules--you can't be DQ'ed for not meeting the challenge!
"Entries will not be disqualified for misinterpreting or failing to meet the challenge to which they are entered. Please do not request disqualification for these reasons, as such requests will not be considered." -from Advanced Editing ruleset.
Great capture, Justin. (But watch out for possible changes to challenge rules in the future which could allow for DQ for not meeting the challenge...had a fun one already with Rubber Ducky.)

You are kicking everyone's butt every week! It's like Tiger Woods used to be ... The people that had a problem with him were the ones that were losing to him !!! (ok maybe it's still like that:) ... These people are jealous and we all know you didn't break the rules because we read the rules. I made the assumption you used some sort of camera filter to allow the shutter to stay open in daylight for 2 seconds. With your talent, I'm sure you'll have the money to have all the funky equipment you want soon enough.
There have been plenty of challenges where the photographer "fooled" the viewer without breaking rules - this being the most recent.

Having said all that, the waterfall is beautiful but not the most original place to take an image.
And frankly, I'm kinda getting tired of you winning all these ribbons - give others a chance :) (assuming you have a sense of humor.
You are still my dp enemy and I must beat you - in a sportmanlike manner, of course!!!

PS: If you weren't famous before, you are now! ... All fame involves controversy !

One more thing: I usually score high when I risk my life taking images ... and sometimes it's my wife that wants to kill me :) ! KEEP it UP! ...PSS: be glad you have a supportive father~!

A question for the critics: How COULd this image have been taken in 2-seconds! ... help the BOY so he can kick your butt next week.

EDIT: final note - I gave this image a 6.

FACT 1) Justin read the thread where a member of the site council states that a photo should "LOOK LIKE TWO SECONDS" as opposed to being two seconds. This is no fault of Justin. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT POINT THAT IS CONVENIENTLY OVERLOOKED AGAIN AND AGAIN.

FACT 2) Justin went to great lengths to get this photo. He leaped onto a slippery boulder in the middle of the raging water. He is enamored to his photo and not the ribbon. It is a great photo and he deserves to be proud of it. His bad luck is that it did ribbon. As it stands he would have been happier with a lower score and placement but he is not going to DQ his photo based on irrational sour grapes that don't take into account the so important thread mentioned in FACT 1.

FACT 3) Justin has received many many PMs from very credible and respected photographers telling him not to self DQ. Afterall, why should he have a photo DQed if it wasn't a DQable offense?

FACT 4) Justin did attempt many two seconds shots from his slippery and dangerous perch and NEVER had a premeditated intention of taking anything other than a two second shot. REPEAT: There was no premeditated intention of bending the rules or looking for loop holes.

FACT 5) Character flaw, cheater, etc. etc. etc? He has more character than the "grown ups" that are viciously attacking him will ever hope to have in thier lives. At 17 he stands before a howling raging mob, reads every post they spew, clicks it as helpful and stands by his guns. Character flaw....laughable and disgusting at the same time.

FACT 6) Yes, I am his father. Sitting in another country, far away, unable to comfort him, sad at the treatment my son with an incredible track record at DPC is receiving and proud to tears at the way he is handling himself and not giving in to unjust wrath. Believe me, the EASY ROAD would have been for him to self DQ but he does not take the EASY ROAD ever.

FACT 7) This post is not for the comments that disagree with Justin posting the photo or feel disappointment. These statements and feelings are understandable and respected. That is much, much different the the labels and deeper insults that have been thrown his way. I say SHAME ON YOU to those people.

C'mon gimme a break, there is NO character flaw here! He followed the Rules and the rules CLEARLY state that you CANNOT be DQ'd for NOT meeting the challenge! Get this in your heads before harping about this over and over. Go read the Challenge rules.

If you shoot and enter challenges to score well and win ribbons then you succeeded. if you shoot and enter to share wonderful photography then you succeeded. If you shoot and enter to challenge yourself given the parameters of the topic, then I think you failed. DPC ultimately is a learning tool as we all agree. And the question I guess would be, what did you learn here?

Good example but dose not out smart the details of the challenge.
Details: Take a photograph using a shutter speed of exactly 2 seconds.

It's probably not fair to DQ the picture but it's even more unfair to those who did send in a 2 sek exposure pictures. Then it's unfair to the voter that thought he was voting on a 2sek exposure picture and would have voted diffrently if he would have known.

(I did not vote nor submit a picture to this challenge)

solution - extend the voting time.

Congratulations on the ribbon, well deserved. In my humble opinion, as someone that did not enter or vote, is that I think the description is just that, a description of what to do. Would a 1/500 shot of a naked man standing in a window ("exposing himself") for two seconds (hence a two second exposure) be right or wrong? I think it would be a lateral interpretation of the challenge and perfectly alright, as is this shot. I actually thought it was longer rather than shorter. Good one, congrats. PS.. I'm still jealous and want your ribbon... :)

EDIT AFTER A FEW COMMENTS

I didn't enter or vote and as a result I made the above comment without realising what the details of the challenge said.. "Take a photograph using a shutter speed of exactly 2 seconds."... I stand corrected. The DPC needs to change and make the details something that needs to be adhered to. My apologies.

03/28/2006 04:22:07 AM
Awsome photo and probably deserves a ribbon in some other challenge.

Well,if you think about it like this:
the winner in high jump is the "pole vaulter" jumping over 5m high.

But it's not your fault, there should have been added an extra rule to the challenge that said it must be a 2sek exposure.

If it where my picture I would ask for a DQ my self since I would not feel good having earnd a blue ribbon this way.

03/27/2006 09:13:09 PM
this is very beautiful and deserving of a ribbon but not in this challenge since the rules were broken. . . I think it should be disqualified and any other that isn't 2 second only. . . that was the criteria

03/27/2006 08:12:26 PM
Congrats on yet another *yawn* ribbon. It's a beautiful scene. Heh- you really poked a hornet's nest with this one, but I can't fault someone for doing what they're legally allowed to do. This may well lead to some modification of future challenges, so you should be proud to be a facilitator of change... something that doesn't happen very often! ;-)

What a waste of the blue ribbon when the image does not fit the challenge. I admit the image is nice. But not meeting the explicit challenge description while it does not get you DQed, makes a mockery of everyone else who has tried to meet the spirit of the challenge. You should be ashamed of yourself.

it seems that the darkness of the photos indicates a two-second exposure could have been achieved in the right lighting. later or earlier in the day would have allowed for this. too bad you didn't think that was important or you wouldn't have submitted this 1/2 second shot taken with too much available light.

I think that you ought to be ashamed for having entered into this challenge with a 1/2 second exposure. You are not new here, and must have known exactly what you were doing.

As far as this photograph goes, well, it's a nice one, but did not strike me as particularly interesting: I gave it a 6. The composition is boring. The watefall is beautiful, but where is the photographer's work?

Yes, this is definitely deserving of a ribbon, but maybe in another challenge instead of the 2-second shutter speed challenge. It is outstanding tho!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2006 06:55:57 AM
My sentiments are definately with hotpasta's comments. I really don't think this should have won and there should have been a special rule on this challenge to DQ any photo not within the 2 seconds. The whole idea was not to take any long exposure shot, but one within the rules which as you must be aware of, is not that easy with 2 seconds.

It's lovely and a wonderful photo, but it should have never been entered in a 2 second challenge when so many, including myself, went out of our way to stay within the spirit of the challenge. Your ribbon was ill received. I appreciate your apology, but its a little too little and a little too late. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2006 05:43:49 AM
Justin, there's no doubt that this is a great shot from a great perspective. Congratulations.

I need to say a few things about this shot:
I'm really disappointed that you entered the 2 second challenge with a 1/2 second shot. It puts all of the hard work that several hundred photographers below you down the tubes. I didn't enter the challenge, so it's no sour grapes on my part. You got the ribbon, but you got it like an athlete who takes forbidden substances to get the edge over others. I know that's harsh, but it's the way I see it.

I don't expect you to give your ribbon back, but for a promising photographer with a superb portfolio, it's something you need to learn from for the future. Fairness should be the first value of any challenge.

How strange. Dull, over-used theme with no highlights... Greens are obviously dodged by heavy masking and them being unsharp doesn't add. A stable 5, no more. If only I had voting rights :)
03/27/2006 05:26:39 AM
Congratulations, a very good photograph.
However, I just feel for the guys who entered technically correct 2 sec exposure photographs and were placed lower as a result of photographs that DNMC at all.

Have to agree though that because it wasnt a 2 second shot it really should not have been entered. The extra 1 and a half seconds of light etc. etc. on this shot would have made it a lot more difficult to achieve the effect you have.

03/26/2006 03:32:17 PM
8 - Very nice. Really like the lush green growth captured and how it contrasts well with the 'white' water, which the 2 sec exposure has worked well here, as well as the black rocks. The only two things I could try to suggest, and both are very minor, are a little more 'interest', or detail at the bottom/fore (but difficult with the long exposure plus there are not too many rocks/stationary objects there) and the overall balance - just seems that this needs a whisker nudge rotation up on the right (but I realize this may well be dead level/straight so apologies in advance) - just a visual thing, and yes, just my opinion. Perhaps a more refined crop also, especially on the sides, not sure.

OH YEAH!!!! Now THIS is a 2-second waterfall that makes you go "10!!!!" No blur in the wrong places. ..No dead growth hanging around. . . No blown out highlights. This is about the most beautiful, perfect waterfall photo I've ever seen, and I have several that I purchased from a landscape photographer friend hanging in my house!!!! To me, this should win blue, hands down!! 10
