There seems to be a rather disturbing trend of seeing a certain Kiwi character holding both blue ribbons at once.

The only solution I can see would be one of the following. I think, in order to not make things overly complicated, we should limit our options to the folowing:

1) Fill Kiwi's camera with rice pudding and throw it in a lake

2) Fill Kiwi with rice pudding and throw him in a lake

3) Make the next challenge "Take an interesting photo of Kiwi being thrown in a lake" (that will make it harder for him to enter)


Congrats to the (other) winners, great shots, in an overall excellent challenge :)

He'd probably take the first photo and prompty remove his pants and walk around naked for the entire week knowing that full frontal nudity is not permitted and thereby disqualifying all the other photos. (Well, except for the half a dozen photos that have nothing to do with the topic)

Judging from his various profile pictures, the guy likes to drink mass quantities of adult beverages. I'm thinking of following in his path to success.

I say make him eat his camera with a bowl of rice pudding and then throw him in the lake.

How about throwing him and his camera into a lake of rice pudding??

Throw the rice pudding in the lake, eat Kiwi, and give me his camera.

I think alansfreed may be on to something. I am going to start right now.

But seriously, you got to admit they are great photos. I can almost feel those worms. Reminds me of going fishing with my grandpa.

Mmm... I think it's not within the camera, noone could use it such brilliant as Gary. :-)
What about making a party, eating the rice pudding and Kiwi could make some good shots of us?

You've all been fooled - it's actually Nasti who takes the photos, Kiwi then sulks and refuses to talk to her until she gives in and lets him enter them.

I always seem to get the bum end of the deal :-( I noticed I never got offered any rice pudding of chocolate icecream. But plenty of offers of being thrown in a lake or eating my camera tho. Sniff sniff...

Okay Marta the party part sound okay :)

So that's why Nasti had enough a couple of weeks ago, Gary, how wicked man you are! Hehe. Just joking. :-)))))

Nobody liked my idea, except Gary? Sniff-sniff... It seems we have just rebel souls here who don't like things in their ordinary ways. :-)

Keep inspiring us, Gary and why not now a soft focus of a bowl of rice pudding with chocolate ice cream??
Add some vanilla and cinnamon, you can enter it to Scents as well

Rice pudding? No way. One word: wedgee.

It was illuminating to read that even Kiwi isn't very interested in shooting the sort of excellent stock photos that he wins with all the time here.

Is something messed up, if people have to shoot stuff that they know only has immediate impact but doesn't hold much interest for even the photographer, just to win here ?

Somehow, if even the photographer is saying he finds the winning pictures he takes uninteresting - something is wrong.

Still beats the crap people submit sometimes, just to submit.

Where did he say that? I missed it. If something was wrong enough, it wouldn't be happening...someone obviously likes the stock photos or they wouldn't keep winning.

In his comments on the picture.

@Gordon: So who's to blame? The community for showing a preference for a style of photo, or the photographer for compromising just to win a ribbon?

I mentioned in the comments to my last photo that the kind of stock photography I take for DPC is not really the kind of photography I enjoy most. I only do it because I know that it is what is scored highly and that is my main objective here. I want to score high which I think is the main reason we submit photos to challenges. If you go through all the challenges and see what is in the top 20 of the results you'll see that it is mainly studio set ups and stock photography. So I figured if that is what does well then I'll do it too.

What I love to do is life photography, wildlife, nature, architecture and street life. You'll see a destinct difference between my portfolio pics and my DPC entries on that aspect. Most of this kind of photography does not do so well here and I am so amazed at the quality of pics that end up way down the field. This to me is probably the true meaning to the title of this thread.
