I think he should comment on them all considering he's the one who caused all this confusion! :-)

Actually, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

Wow! "Huge" improvement from this morning... when it was at 4.5 with 16 votes.
OK, it's not an stellar image and maybe does deserve a below 5 - I suppose I pushed it too much?

I'm no quitter, but I've been considering on self-DQ it if no comments come along - even if it is trashing the thing... it'd be nice to hear something anyway... Man, it sounds like a good example of loneliness.

OK, now back to our regular programming.

The rotated shots are an effort at a creative approach to the topic. I see many different interpretations. Most of them valid. As long as I can clearly see how the photographer felt it suited, then I am ok with it.


True, but if you "rotate" the entire image you are also rotating the subject. For instance a vertical man in a vertical frame is a horizontal man in a horizontal frame once rotated. There is still not vertical vs a horizontal or vice versa...
Now if you take a picture of say, a (vertical) tree in a horizontal frame, and rotate it for a creative approach, I am totally cool with that.

In my world they do.


Touche... LOL

My camera has the feature to turn ROTATE TALL (Nikon D80) off. The photos taken with Off selected for Auto Image Rotation will be displayed in "wide" (landscape) orientation. If you take a picture in portrait it will display it in landscape.

I'm sure it's a feature that most of our cameras have...

Long time since we've seen an entry from you. Glad to see the decent score, excellent quality again, I'm sure.

Thanks guys, yeah I've been slack RE DPC entries that's for sure.

Happy to say photography is still a huge part of my life but not DPC friendly/orientated work. :)

RE Canon, I left my good old Pentax behind sometime ago and could NEVER go back.
