How many DNMCs will this get for having more than three words in the title?
...

Surely didn't expect to ribbon with this one, but a 96th is ridiculous. Nowhere in the challenge description does it state your title can't be longer than three words... where's your sense of humor, folks?

Thanks to all others for your votes and comments!
Special thanks go to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' trinch for the wonderful extension of the title (see his comment below)!

LMAO - I think you should get extra points for that title - especially as English isn't your first language :- )

Wow! I am learning from you... I see that many of the people here, people who have been here much longer than I have, take the tiny things very, very serious. I can see that the title was just in fun and it more than met the challenge. DNMC is really a prudish comment here. Just my opinion though. I will be very careful to stay firmly within the box at this site.

I didn't catch on first view, maybe cause I am new, but the horses are pretty washed out.

I didn't get to vote in this challenge but you would have got bonus points from me for the title alone. Great shot, too.

Three word title? But a nice sky!

.... keeping lawn mowed neatly on peacefully quite retreat so that ugly vegetation won't xtinquish your zen.

Alright, so I cheated with the 'x'. But Xerox or x-ray just didn't make any sense.

"three words"... and i wouldnt say the horses are "frolicking" ;) Nice colour play and scene tho...

I thought that you made the word 'Frolicsomely' up, but nope, it's in the dictionary! What a fantastic photograph. Nicely done.

05/15/2008 11:12:40 PM
juxtaposed? i'll have to look that one up:)
05/15/2008 10:45:40 PM
What a beautiful day, wonderful scene.
Grazing horses indulging.
That would have been my title.

Great wide angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2008 11:15:11 AM
10 for title
7 for photo

I love the lens reflections and the elongated feel of the shot , the colors are good and the sky is so appealing

Overall 9 (I round up!)

Great title! I'm amaazed by your mastery of the language! :-)
As for the photograph... I like the wide angle effect, and the colors are very vibrant, except the horses seem a little bit washed out in comparison. Still very nice though.

Oh my... too many letters. ;-) I hope it doesn't bring you many DNMC. Whether is does or doesn't, it is a great image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 08:15:18 PM
Ok, I will restrain myself and not dock you points for that groaner of a title! ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Composition: 8
Technical: 6 - A little wide angle distortion. Colors and focus are great though.
Creativity: 5 - A good eye for picturing the whole scene. (pun intended)
Appeal: 7 - Lovely.
Challenge: 2 - I'm sure it's already been pointed out. :/
Overall Score: 5 - (weighted - NOT a calculated average)

I think you are just supposed to have a three word title.
05/13/2008 03:17:03 PM
that's a mouthful of a title, love the shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2008 01:28:43 PM
Well, you pretty much coverd 25% of the alphabet with that title. Lol. As for your image, I like it. Good angle and I like the brightness of the sky and the green of the rolling hills.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2008 03:52:00 AM
Oh...now you're just showing off to all of us who had a hard time coming up with just a three-word title... This pic makes me want leave my desk and run in that field...

Aren't you a clever person with you long title.....
Not sure it is correct for this challenge, as it says three letters ABC LMN XYZ by my reading of it, but I an not going to make you down for that, as I think you are clever, and I also rather like your image very much.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 10:14:07 PM
Great that you could string all the words them all togther. I like the sun and the sky. Kind of a DMC as the title is supposed to be 3 words.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 09:41:25 PM
Heh, heh - you are being punished I'm sure. But not by me. Clever title - colors in the horses especially seem a bit washed out, probably from that harsh midday glare, and could use maybe a touch more contrast. But nice composition - I like that you chose to give the sky the bulk of the attention here.

05/12/2008 07:23:15 PM
Love the title! Extra point for that :)

Great title to suite the picture. You made me look in the dictionary (not voting though)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 01:43:26 PM
Beautiful. This could be a poster.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 01:08:56 PM
good job with the shot, especially composition and exposure, as well as on the title. should be in top-10, at least.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 10:58:13 AM
Such a serene and relaxed scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 10:55:56 AM
Well, you got cojones anyway :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 09:44:50 AM
Ummm... very creative, but the rules did state it needed to be a 'three word title'. Nicely shot and no points off for not following the rules. That sky is wonderful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 09:32:22 AM
*LOL* this is a -great- image, i hope you don't get bammed down for the long title (it is -alphabetically in order!- ;) beautiful and nicely executed (high score) :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 09:00:43 AM
not sure Intriguingly and Frolicsomely are words but clever title :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2008 01:35:40 AM
sun looks kinda weird...nice shot of the horses, kind of a lot of words for the title...6
05/12/2008 12:48:57 AM
Sadly, DNMC
05/12/2008 12:32:42 AM
OK...we get the drift! :)

Great image, nice saturation
