This is a photograph that is not a photograph.

It is what it is not, therefore it both meets and does not meet this challenge.

I realize that this photo will likely fail because there will be plenty that "don't get it" but I believe that it is the only type of image that can truly both meet and not meet the challenge at the same time.

I'm interested to hear how you achieved such good noise reduction here.

A really fabulous image... except the horizon is rotated about 10 degrees out. This can really kill a fine image and is probably why you didn't get the brown ribbon.

congratulations for having the same idea as me - and unlike all the other commenter's who are saying that I actually entered it. It will be interesting to see who scores higher - me (with a square crop) or your uncropped version.

I had this idea too but I wanted to do it in white. I was going to name it Black. You should have named yours White, then it wouldn't have met the challenge.

If a man speaks in a forest, and there is not a woman there to hear him, is he still wrong? DNMC.

Someday I hope there will be a challenge for monotonic images, but until then there is no way this meets the challenge. Congratulations! But I do say that I liked the square entry better because it maximized it's pixels for greater detail. For this reason I can only give you a 9. Sorry.

To answer the title, it depends. Did you get rid of any hot pixels? ;-)

Hmmm, interested to see how this finished, interesting concept!

This is animage that doesn't actually show anything. It doesn't meet the challenge. it does not meet any challenge at all, but that's exactly the point!

Lighting is rather flat. Next time, try some modelling lights. ;-Þ

:) I was going to do exactly the same for this challenge (but went to bed instead) so will be curious to see how this turns out. Would have had a different title though ;)
