Do you have a picture that didn't win, that you think would have won in another challenge? Interested in hearing from everybody.
It's all about timing sometimes.

I don't have one yet. Only 3 challenges entered so far but, I think this one should do very well in negative space.

This wasn't a challenge picture, but I wish I would've had it for "Complimentary Colors"

I really wouldn't call either of those gorgeous photos "losers"! I do agree that they would have done well in the other challenges, though. BEAUTIFUL!

Well, maybe not a winner and maybe not a loser, but I think Wailin' the Blues would have done much better in the Blue Challenge.
Actually the idea was intended for that, but when I missed the Blue Challenge because my model (husband, hehe) was too busy, I had to spill the idea for the camera somehow and shot it for the Motion challenge. :)

We had a "Where's Waldo" challenge awhile back, that I didn't enter. I sure wish I had this picture then."Where's Waldo" hopeful.

That's an incredible shot inspzil!

I had an entry for the Kitchen Art challenge that I never submited because I wasn't a paying member yet but I think it would have done pretty well.

Its not as good as "Heart of a Flower" but I like it pretty well. I thought of another one too, Flora This one has been seen by a lot of you already I'm sure, but its worth another look methinks.

Don't you know how they pick the challenge topic? Drew and Langdon look at my entry each week and say "Hey, that would be a great picture for a ____ challenge!" and use it the next week.

I guess with more members they are spreading the action around now, but it used to be quite a regular thing.

Yeah the day after "Oops" ends somethings going to happen.

I have one that I think would have done better in a dif. challenge. This one would have done better in Advertising. It sure didn't do good in glass.

Yes, I think your picture would do pretty well in advertising.

Though THIS actually did very well in the leading lines challenge, it may have been more of a "Bridges" shot.
08/30/2003 05:27:55 AM · #14
I think this would have done better in the Negative Space challenge than in the desolation challenge:

This would do very well in the insect challenge.
09/10/2003 11:10:45 PM · #16
Maybe the Toothbrush would do better at tool challenge!

Inside looking out, instead of right angles!

I suppose my entry "Librarian" would have done better in "Oops!" than "Tools".

Although, I was very happy with 32nd place for a first time challenge!

I think it would really do good in a black and white challenge.

The problem with that photo is that we have seen several very similar images before,It is the idea which is not genuine here!

This shot probably would have done quite well in the "night on the town" or "postcard" challenge.

One of my favorite shots.

Im still trying to find out how to sell it as a postcard to Disney.
