Russ, and this is typed in a perfectly calm way, it's interesting that I'm suddenly out of order considering some of the comments that have been flying around from others. Complaints were initially about how someone could have more than one entry shortlisted and then more were made about the application (or not) of rules but this quickly moved on to finger pointing and accusations by several people with 'have you seen this' kind of posts slightly reminiscent of 'I'm telling on you' from a playground.
Ok, that may be slightly OTT but, you get my point?! Jim has been singled out, with Bucharon etc, while the 'problem' lies squarely at the feet of the organisers - but we have to consider they have to trust us to a certain extent and can't really be expected to check the validity of 114,000 images.
And perhaps the Digital Photo comp is classed as a minor comp as it's a mag and not The Landscape Photographer Of The Year etc - prize money regardless, it's the perceived stature but again, something for Photoradar and not individuals.
I stand by it, Jim did all the right things and contacted the organisers who gave him a green light - and he's been pilloried for it. There are lots of lessons to be learnt by several people...
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer
