Was my photo removed?☹️
The photo did not meet the minimum width requirement of 1000px. Private message sent.


Yes I think it was because of the dripper, I stopped entering photos lol. They want a natural looking photo which i cannot get because of the screen. Try getting outside photos. 🙂
A photo entry can lose points for that but it's not a disqualifier.

I thought you had a great entry but our records show you deleted it on Saturday. "Reason: wrong photo"
Oh wow I thought I uploaded it again... the first submission wasn't showing for me after I posted it so I deleted and thought I resubmitted haha. Oh well lol. maybe next time.

Great entries... I want to add that I was a member for like 9 months before I won a photo contest. If you do not enter you just do not have the opportunity. I had images that did not make the cut as well. AND I do happen to vote for my own photo when I do enter, I figure if I have at least 1 vote why not use it on my own image. Nothing wrong with that. It still does not mean your going to win. :hilarious:

Voting on your own photo is not going to win you the contest. Usually it takes at least a dozen votes to win.

People get really offended and upset when their photo doesnt make the cut. Mine have been cut before, too, and sure there is that moment of disappointment if you felt you had a great photo! But some months there are too many photos, and they are culled down based on criteria and composition.

If you want a competitive edge, check out @JacksJill ’s blog post and photos and practice a bit with angles and lighting…. And most importantly TRY AGAIN!

The contest is fun and offers a valuable prize - of course that will draw a lot of photos. But if every month it just creates drama and complaints and rule requests…. Well, if it were me I wouldn’t want to deal with that EVERY month and would just stop the contest. Give poor Brad a break, he’s got his hands full already and the photo contest should be fun!

What's life without a little drama? And what is this try again stuff? When things get tough, just give up.

In all seriousness, if I was brad, I'd just ignore it. TBH though, I don't see anyone here causing drama? Maybe it was deleted?
