Well, it's one rule that I think is a bit over the top and should be addressed. I may be wrong, but I feel it was probably DQ'd because of the black border you added which is for the most part distinguishable around the actual image, but on the edge where your hand is and the border meets your black board it no longer looks like a border. At least it doesn't on my calibrated monitors. It has to clearly be defined as a border. If I add a border to my photos it's always a small black border, but I won't add it if there is a lot of black on any of the edges where it gets lost as it does here.

It's a pretty silly rule, and I agree with most if not all the rest, but to ME...if you can clearly see a black border (or sometimes white depending on the photo) on 3 of the edges it's pretty darn safe to assume that there is a border on the fourth side of the photo even if it blends in with the background. How many people add a border to only three sides of a photo. Answer...none. People either border two sides or the whole image.

I've seen it time and time again on here where a black border added to a black background gets a DQ. If you had added a white border for instance the photo would still have a blue ribbon next to it. Again, maybe there is some other reason that it was DQ'ed that I'm not seeing, but that's my take.

Great photo BTW...

That's kinda ridiculous, if that's true he basically got DQ'ed over 1/3 of 1 side of the frame, not even one whole side. There's clearly a border on the right side of the image, it just blends in a bit in the middle. You should contest if that's the reason.

This is a really unique landscape, which why it's so great. Should have ribboned IMO

Wow both are great, I personally like the colour one a bit more, the complimentary colours are awesome. But you got the Blue so it probably doesn't even matter.

A bit noisy but you managed to capture the reflections in the water nicely.
