This is a Vermillion Flycatcher that just landed on a branch high up in the tree. It then scanned the surrounding area for insects from that high vantage point. Captured at a local Wildlife Sanctuary in Orange County, CA.

Thank you for looking,
Joshua

Nice photo, but I thought that the rule says:" Your submission MUST be free of frames, signatures or borders".

Just wondering...

Thank you! The actual image is without border; the border is added by this forum. Yes, I enabled that function by clicking at the appropriate box. The signature.... yes, I added that and if it is in violation of the rule then, Fred can remove or delete this entry. I remembered that border or frame that was added by this forum would be allowed but I am not aware that signature was not. Or I can edit the image and remove the signature and disable the border function. I am not currently home right now but I can do it this weekend.

Thank you,
Joshua

The border, I understand but it is the signature. The rule is quite specific.

Like stated in my previous post, I will edit that if it is allowed but I canít do it until this weekend. Again, I wasnít aware of the rule and I believe it wasnít there previously but okay, I should have read the rule again after awhile.

When I click on the MA rule from Monthly Assignment page ( list view ), this is what I get
>>>
WA rules

New pictures only. Please help maintain this board as a learning tool for the photographers who participate. Only pictures taken during the assignment week may be submitted. Images outside the deadline won't be allowed to be posted.

Your submission MUST have exactly 800 pixels for its longest dimension (no less, no more). Since entries can have a maximum dimension size of 800 pixels, it's advisable to keep them free of frames. However, Upload & Sell members may use the preset frames as they won't affect image size.

Your submission MUST be embedded onto your message (It can't be presented as a URL link)

<<<<

That is what I thought was the rule, however, note that the title is for weekly assignment.

When I click on the MA rule from this page ( within each topic ), it leads to MA rule, which is more strict.

>>>>>
Monthly assignment rules

New pictures only. Please help maintain this board as a learning tool for the photographers who participate. Only pictures taken during the month of the assignment (from the results of the topic poll until the last day of the month) may be submitted. If your image was not shot during the assignment month, it will be disqualified and moved to the appropriate board.

Your submission MUST have exactly 800 pixels for its longest dimension. (No less, no more)

Your submission MUST be embedded onto your message (no URL links)

Your submission MUST be free of frames, signatures or borders

Only (1) one submission per participant. If replacing your entry, please delete one of them. (Or make it clear which image is your final submission)

Stay with the theme and submit tasteful work - otherwise your entry will be automatically deleted or moved to the appropriate board.

If someone registers the forum more than once and make two or more votes to the assignments, he/she will be banned from the FM forums permanently.

<<<<<

As I can't seem to find the 'MA rule' unless I am in a topic, the stricter rule is harder to access. It seems Fred needs to fix this error.

Thank you for looking that up. All my entries had my signature or copyright information on them. I didn't know that there is a discrepancy in the two sets of regulations.


________________________________________



I wanted to remove the image and to replace that with the exact same image without the signature and disabled the automatic border insertion but the system didn't let me do it. I tried replacing that first and then I tried by deleting the image first but at this point, I couldn't even delete the previous image anymore. I don't know what else to do at this point... Sorry.

I donít think it matters, at least not for me, but, if you want to change, I suggest you send a PM to Fred.

Josh... I imagine most people don't care about signatures, frames, or whatnot. It is all about getting motivated to participate and enjoying the photography at least for me. Super excellent capture by the way. Amazing wing spread!! John

I find it curious that there are different rules for the two assignments.

But, everyone has an opinion. Mine is: I do care about the photo being taken during the period, but don't care about the frame or signature.

In the mean time, "rules are rules".

ps: Nice photo Joshua.

Great shot!! I don't think that you can edit once the voting starts, anyway. Honest mistake and I didn't know about that rule, either. Good luck!
