In this Contest
https://www.pixoto.com/challenges/jux...
organized by Pixoto the winner Image is out of the rules.
Pioxoto contest rules are :

"When two contrasting things are placed close together to exaggerate the their differences."

"In this contest we want contrasting animals -- in size, color, texture, etc"

#1. Image is a very nice image, that, in my opinion, is not corresponding to the rules. .
The reverse is true, I have never seen an image whith such an equality of taxation so evenly distributed.

I can not find any Contrasts in size, , color texture or exaggeration of differences.

Hi Ad, the second image shows adult and baby tigers. The third show bird and baby bird, so for both size is contrast, and both are according to contest rules.

I hope this helps.

Hi Renos, I got a reply as follows: "The butterflies are faces opposite directions, so it's within the rules of the contest."

Thanks for your answer Jasenka!

The "person that is handling PIxoto sponsored contests." is fobbing us off with glib excuses instead of admiting an error, that`s painfully obvious for everyone.

Sad to say this "Persons" way of behaviour hasn`t change all these years, sad but true !
