You're so right - the blinkers are on again!

I was very excited when I looked at all the ways that people had interpreted the title. If they have that much imagination in coming up with their own image, I am sure they have the imagination to see how other people's entries also fall within the bounds of the challenge.

I know that I will attempt to be more creative in the future in finding subject matter to meet a challenge.

Agreed - but it seems to be a different group of people who vote! Beware that creativity is different to popularity. Both have their benefits. Not sure which I am or would like to be (perhaps I am falling between stools and the worst of each world!).

I like creativity when it comes to what people see in the challenge. But, in my opinion, sometimes people put utter crap up and claim it to be whatever the challenge is. And that is part of my voting right. It is my subjective vote. I think you can be original and stay on topic no matter who looks at it.
With that all said. I noticed some photos in here that appear to be "digital art". Made with more that one photo. Is that legal? I have read and re-read the rules and swear it is not legal. But, I am confused again.

In the recent surrealism challenge, 2 of the top 3 looked as if they might be illegal for that reason:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/316/thumb/154133.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/316/thumb/154133.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/316/thumb/154154.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/316/thumb/154154.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Read the photographer's description on each of these to see how it was obtained within DPC rules. You should vote each image in the challenge on the assumption it is legal. They almost always are. If you think an image may be illegal, you can request review by SC, it's one of the links under the votable image. The main thing is NOT to penalize people because you don't "think" they played fair. Some of our shooters are remarkably creative in the creation of special effects.

Guess in my way of thinking, if a submission meets the challenge,
it rates a 5.0, which leaves me to wonder how I'm at 4.6852 right now.

Oh well.

Hell, Brad, I wonder that all the time. Check out what happened to my "moods" shot, LOL. Danged near got a brown, I did, and it was a truly moody shot, I do insist...

Dangit Brad... I still have you beat in the personal-worst category. Must you clobber me at EVERYTHING?

No, but sometimes what appears to be impossible really IS a single shot. That said, I'm avoiding monitor backgrounds for a while... ;-)

Take some of mine. I've got 10, but you don't necessarily WANT the comments I'm getting. ;-)

I dare you to use a monitor background for the silhouette II challenge ... muwahahahamuwahahahahamuwahahaha...

(That's supposed to be a crazed, maniacal, deeply sounding, almost booming laughter. I can work out a wav. file if you want).

That was my first thought, quickly followed by another thought of DPCers coming to my door with torches and pitchforks.

Is monitor use an automatic mark-down? Maybe that's why my other entry is only doing so-so. No, I know it's really the focus I'm still struggling with. Need to talk to clarmore about lighting and in-home studio shooting. Anyone know any tutorial sites?
Here is my submission for outside-in. I didn't get to submit it in time cause my danged computer is bogged down by crap that managed to sneak past Norton. I didn't know that was possible (yes, I'm careful what I open and where I go on the net).
Thanks Coolhar for noticing... :) ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=175822', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=175822', '/') + 1) . '

In case you missed it, Shannon's entry for surrealism

got the blue but created quite a small stir due to the use of the monitor.

I don't think its use is an auto markdown, but a poor use of one probably would mean a markdown.

Dang...(Is this legal on the forum?) Even before I hit the for example link, I knew what was coming up. You sending messages or something with that?
I'm amazed. This is the first time ever my score in a challenge actually goes UP, incrementally even, beyond the first day. Hrm...

-'In case you missed it, Shannon's entry for surrealism '

I did catch all that flurry, and even added to the comments, but I wondered if anything had developed since. Personally I would try to use any tools allowable to add to creativity -like adding another color to my painting pallet.

Try try again (still figuring this out) hope it works this time.
Outside in outtake...

I used my monitor as background on this entry but not even one comment (out of 41) mentioned anything.

This would be a perfect example of using a monitor in an utterly non-confrontable way. I mean, but a rainbow cardboard behind the glass, but a rainbow monitor behind the glass, who cares? Where the issue, such as it is, arises is when the monitor image becomes an integral and complex part of what's being shot, if that makes sense? Personally, I don't have a problem with it. Some people do.

For me, the only real issue is not "how" it was done, but whether the technique fits within the ruleset, and whether the rules are being enforced consistently.

But that's a digression... And anyway they're doing a good job...
