PLEASE respect that the below is 50 per cent tongue in cheek and 50 per cent serious... I'll leave it to your discretion to work which from which... the internet sometimes blur's the tone in which a statement is written and trust me, my tongue is firmly in my cheek as I type : )
@ Russ "CSI" Barnes
Why do you feel this issue needs your approval?
I must have missed the meeting when you were made God of Photo Radar?.
Your attitude and petty minded crusade, when real people with a conscience including the staff presiding over any entries would have sorted any erroneous submissions without you playing an ill informed super grass.
All you have succeeded in doing is coming across as a petty minded, vindictive, accusative, judgemental, assumptive and arrogant whiner.
When I submitted my image to Photo Answers I did the same to the Photo Radar POTY never feeling I would place in either competition as Wildlife is and never has been my chosen discipline.
Between placing in a round of Photo Answers, not winning the round nor being put forwards for the Photo Answers POTY and being given a voucher (that took months to arrive!) I found myself much to my surprise being issued a request for a Hi Res from Photo Radar.
I notified Photo Radar hours after receiving the request for a Hi Res image as has be proven here and subsequently have sought (under my own instigation) for the image to be pulled from the short list after discovering that the image had, without my consent or knowledge been reproduced in a magazine.
My discovering it had been printed is what prompted my request for it's removal as knowing that any printed image is not eligible I had previously removed a submitted image from my portfolio of submissions as it had appeared in the 'Hotshots" pages last month.
It's now out of the short list and the competition and I am totally cool with that and wish the remainder of the short list the absolute very best : )
Any one that's chosen to start calling any photographer here a cheat or likewise just blends in to the white noise of on- line trolls as with out any individual knowing ALL the facts pertaining to a situation any accusation remains hollow and un-founded.
To assume that the staff here would not tie any loose ends up regarding selected short list entries prior to the winners being announced and more vitally the fact that there is no pre defined amount or cap of entries for any short list (so in truth absolutely no one has lost out in the selected short list process) is a little naive.
Right, I'm off to do the important thing and go take photos!
