Nice photo Benitoite. I like fish but prefer them not looking at me before I eat them.  :p

This challenge was not well received. Hope your challenge theme draws more participation.

What's next Benitoite?

I really love participating in these challenges. But some topics seem to greatly favor subjects that are manmade, or at least those that exhibit "the hand of man" in some way. I have a difficulty with such subject matter, as I primarily photograph things from nature - things in which man had no influence. So sometimes it is hard for me to come up with an entry for a challenge, because, well . . . . . how do you enter tabletop images if you don't care to photograph something on a table because tables are manmade?

I do think that "Tabletop Photography" is an interesting concept, and that there is value in selecting such a theme.....it's just something that I personally don't really have a passion to do myself. But I think ti was a neat thing to do, and am puzzled as to why there wasn't more participation. Perhaps others who regularly participate in these challenges could explain why they did not do so this week???

Anyway, I will check out Benetoite's newly issued challenge - #449 - and hope that it will work for my images, which usually feature "nature in the raw".

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Not a problem Tom. Challenge participation comes and goes.

I try to select topics other than the ordinary everyday photo topics. Sometimes they work, this time not so well.

Personally, I like Benitoite's topic for this week. One will have to think somewhat outside the box to come up with a photo.

I have found that the judging part is stressful for me.

I don't think it was very stressful for Old Crow.

This time was a no-brainer. I can relate to Benitoite's comment. I am forced outside my comfort zone when I have to critique others photos. I can pick out the ones I like easy enough but giving constructive feedback on the others I find somewhat difficult at times. I hope it gets easier as time goes by.

Did you happen to mean that you relate to Sibil's comment?

Sometimes the judgements show the stress of judgement. I was a musician in school, so we learned a lot about judging, playing each semester in front of a faculty jury. I think one does have to play to win... but judges need to remember to have fun, also, and that the players have been likewise directed to have fun with the task.

Happy lunar new year, y'all!
