I did think the piano looked a little 'dead' but that wasn't the one that I had mentally questioned. There was some color in that one, but not exactly how I would have expected it to look. The way it is, is very effective and it is a wonderful photo, but I wondered.

Shadows during the eclipse were all shaped like crescent moons. Can't explain the shadowy figure on the left but it was there in 3 other shots

grandmaR, that is precisely why I am giving second chances to people to think...
It is easy to see, using software, when a picture has been manipulated to "appear" B/W

Do Not bug me
can't we all just get along
I understand that the first shot is not by the rule you posted after my post .I did remove the yellow in the flower ,bug is as shot . I did not read in your first posting of the challenge that it was to be out of camera . That said I know the first shot is left up to point out that it is a rule breaker and in this challenge a no no.
second shot by the rules

If you hadn't said it was a garage door, I could imagine it as a large wooden monastery door, in which case the shadow would have to be a hooded monk!
Facinating and very spooky!

It may be easy for you, but I don't know that I could do it.
I didn't think the image had to be SOOC - just an originally color photo which had not been black and white-ized. Only one of my photos was originally digital, so I guess you can tell with that one, but I'm not sure about the others two.

I came to this site with the intent of challenging (and humbling) myself and looking at some of these photographs it's clear that I certainly came to the right place. I'm extremely impressed at how much extraordinary work is entered in these challenges almost "casually" <img src="https://us.v-cdn.net/6029383/emoji/bowdown.gif" border="0" alt="" >. Well... back to the lenses with me!

By the way, I really like the way the cat in the next post appears to be looking up at the peacock <img src="https://us.v-cdn.net/6029383/emoji/clap.gif" border="0" alt="" >

ALXCAR first I will say thank you and then I was really blown away at who won :ivar .I agree with what you said 100% my shot was not the best but what you said about my shot is why I posted that shot . I did not read all the posts that it should be more 'out of the camera' and no PS . Thank you again for the kind words getting that shot was prefocus and knowing what they were going to do beforre it took place .3 frames in less than a second it was over .
ALXCAR - Well done, but I think you've not entirely followed the usual "admin" style for these comps ... no worries, but I will PM you with some pointers. jwear ... by the number of posts you've made you look like an "old" hand, if not I would suggest a visit to the comp guidelines which are usually included in the first post opening up a new mini - competition. Have a look at the previous competition to see the guidelines.
would you please PM me I do not understand what you mean here I think ALXCAR did a great job of running the challenge not just because I won [that was a nice thing ] .He was there the whole time voted right away ,no delay, no LAG behind, he did just fine
