Comment by kenskid:
That's what challenge rules/discriptions are....measuring sticks and white gloves.

Chopping the head off in this photo would have made a big difference....at least to my eye.

It is a very creative and a well done photo but I'm with the minority on this....DPC never lets me down...I never know what to expect....most of the time this would have been DNMC right out of the top 20...however, for some reason, the ONLY photo showing some face got the red ! Every other photo (except one meant for the chips challenge) adhered perfectly to the rules.

Also...I covered up the photo down to the chin and it makes a DRASTIC difference in the composition and "feel" of the photo. Covering the chin down to the neck changes the whole feel of the shot...almost to the point of "monstrous" and even mannequin looking.

It's a wonderful shot, but the "assignment" was to shoot subjects between the knee and the neck, which was very challenging and the criteria that everyone tried to fulfill. The woman in the background doesn't fulfill that. I'm not sure why everyone is ok with it. Maybe it's because the second part says "without feet and face," but to me it was clear that the challenge was supposed to be difficult because we could only shoot between knee and neck.


i understand there is criteria to a challenge for a reason but sometime people can't see the forest thru the trees, we get so caught up with our measuring sticks and white gloves we can't just enjoy a great shot

I can see the different views on what is ok and what is not, considering the title and description sort of contradict each other, but you got the ribbon and it's a lovely shot, so who cares! :)

Comment by AllenP:
Pleasantly surprised that this one did well considering that you did not exactly follow the description of the challenge. DPC is usually very unforgiving when it comes to not exactly following the challenge description. Maybe the voters are loosening up a bit? Who knows ... congrats on your ribbon!

I did follow the description part of the challenge ("without feet or face") more so than the actual title of the challenge... didn't even realize that it might be an issue until I started getting the DNMC comments.

Comment by Adz:
You could start to get a bit picky and say the chin is in the photo but I think the concept and idea much outweigh that. Congrats on the finish
