Babies and Children? I think not....

Are you kidding? While I understand your reluctance to embrace "Street Photography" as a genre... despite its being recognized by MoMa for example... this is just a perfect example of someone "missing the boat by a mile".

These two images have been moved from "Street & Candid" to "Babies & Children Candids" Surely you jest.... please. If your intent is to ignore the genre... okay, do so.. but there is no reason to completely disrespect it... these ares not entered as candid baby images.... never the intent from the instant the shutter was activated...

Thanks in advance for your kind consideration, Alan

Based on re-catergorizing, just about every image in my challenge... which the rules state must be from Black & White... Street and Candid... would be placed in some "people - portrait...." whatever.

I truly do not understand...

Were they moved from People/Street and Candid or Black and White/Street and Candid?

These look like Black & White - Street and Candid to me. If you had decided to put them in Babies and Children that would be fine too but no reason for them to be moved on you.

Agreed, but I did not. that was not the spirit the images were created in..

I think theses folks are trying... but I believe they should all do a little investigation into Meyerowitz, Maier, etc. etc. et all.... it is from them that I draw my inspiration...

I find Street Photography well represented and appreciated on Instagram if you follow the right people and search certain street related hashtags. I'll still post mine here but not expecting them to get this category right anytime soon.

This is Black & White, Street and Candid. According to their own rules, anything Black and White can be submitted to ... Black and White. Looking at the subject it henceforth should be placed under Street and Candid. These pictures must be re-instated and you ought to get credits for boosting them all anew again.

Probably somebody found your photos doing very well and up in the leaderboard and ahead of their images. It happens when they can find a "loophole" reason. It happened to me and I'm sure many others too. LOL!

Actually... they were stinking it up and barely noticed, no surprise as lot's of the street stuff goes unloved..

There had to be something other than that...

I have been upset a few times when they have changed one of my pictures (and I don't agree with the change). But this is the winner. This change makes no sense at all.

Hello Alan, both images were initially submitted in People category, and they have been recategorized to Babies and Children category since on both images are children below 16 years old.

Please check category description page here: http://blog.pixoto.com/category-descr...

I hope this helps.

If that's the case it's my error... but I generally submit my street sots to B&W Street and Candid...

Thanks for taking the time..

Hi Alan, since both categories have same subcategories, it is possible to make such error, I know I've done it :)

Thank you for your understanding... It is entirely possible that is what I did as they were among the first images I uploaded upon joining.
