Dear All,

At the very outset, please do not take it personally.

I have serious doubts whether certain photos can be categorised as photos "of Road" or Photos "Off Road" or Photos "On Road".

1. First snap by Deepak Kaw i.e. where road vanishes, in my opinion, is an excellent snap, but it is of not "of road".

2. First Snap by Chillum Baba i.e. deserted, is the uwa of the building and not "of road". Road in this is ancillary.

3. Snap by Ayaz in my opinion is more of dark hour sky and lights by car. Road in this is ancillary.

4. Entry 1 by Brendon is similarly more of Light Trails, Road in this is ancillary.

Before parting, I would like readers & fellow members to think whether following snaps qualify as "Photos OF road" or "Photos OFF road" or "Photos ON Road" though they have large portion "of road"






16. Right man you are the dude ! So how many photos can we post ?
Two photos per user

Brendon, since you make the Rules, do you also get the privilege to break them ?  ;D  ;D

@HvD - Please Please read rule 10204253653465657 carefully. They are there for your benefit only.


10204253653465657. Can the octamod post 3 entries
Yes

With that out of the way yes some of the entries have the roads as an ancillary subject (including mine !) but honestly these contests are more for fun rather than being too technical. If anyone was expecting differently with me being in charge of the contests then honestly you need to get to know me better ! :P

As long as the photos have some semblance of a road in them I am fine with it.

However if someone posted cat photos then rest assured they would be deleted !!!! ;D

@hvdatar - the title just says "roads"..it doesn't specify anything so i guess its open to interpretation :) Similarly if the title said "tiger" you could post a pic with a tiger in it even though there were trees, branches and err yes roads too in the same photo ;)

imho the pics you've posted would also qualify...
Nikon FM(black), Nikon FG, Nikon D700, Nikon FM(silver), Nikon FM10, Pentax Spotmatic, Zenith TTL, Minox Wetzlar, Agfa Optima III, Yashica & Rollei rangefinders etc

28mm 2.8, 70-300vr, 200mm f4, 50mm 1.4, 55mm 2.8 macro, 50mm 1.8, 16mm 2.8, 70-210 f4 macro, Lensbaby, Helios 44 f2, 90mm macro, etc

A quick query - I never vote for my entries. This time too, I didnt. Are we allowed to do so?

^^ A general rule of thumb is in such competitions where the participation and voting is limited a good practice is to vote for other photos. I too never vote for my photos in such contests but if I was standing for elections and there were lakhs of voters then rest assured I would vote for me ! :D

18 votes cast. Still 3 photos tied for first place ! Voting closes in 4 days. :)
