I am sorry this thread has upset anyone. Our zephyr tries to check every image for duplicity online. Yes, occasionally someone has mistakenly posted images they didnít take, but itís so rare that Iím surprised anyone thinks of it as cheating and not an error in understanding the rules. No one has yet falsely claimed an image that wasnít theirs.
There are indeed some exceptional photographers that have been competing on Photozone. Many weíve watched grow from beginning photography, to the high quality images you see posted today. I like to pretend our contests have contributed to that lol. Honestly, itís quite a compliment someone worries the images may be stolen. Yes, they are that good!
Iím personally very proud of everyone that competes in the contest, regardless of the quality you started with, weíve watched your photographic growth and now witness the high artistic images you post. Letís make peace and take it for the compliment this really is.
Are all of the entrees posted by professionals? Yes! Anyone who creates art for the benefit of others is a professional. Youíve entered a field that even the least artistic can enter and succeed in. Most wonít ever make a nickel from it and it can be a fairly expensive hobby; but like all artists, itís not and never was about the money or who was ďbestĒ.
Please enter our next photography contest. Itís the best time to learn and share your experience, from the beginning. Regardless of your photographic skill level (or lack there of), it will definitely challenge and help expand your picture taking skills.
