I have a problem with 3 of my photos that were disqualified. The ones titled Barn Doors, Contemplation and What's Inside? all are pictures of the loft doors on our barn. They have hinges and they are open. What is wrong with these? Please reconsider these for the contest. I removed the pwcopendoors-dq tag, but did not put them back in the contest. I would just like an explanation on these 3. I apologize for the ones that I entered that did not meet the qualifications. I will pay closer attention to the rules next time.

Yes, but I am unsuccessful with doing this sort of thing. I'll just copy the pictures here. The titles are "Barn Doors", "Contemplation" and "What's Inside?" I have tried to upload a picture and copy and paste the link. My images are too large and the links won't accept. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I just can't get the photos to load here. They are the photos with the woman in the pink skirt and white boots sitting in a chair with the barn's upper loft doors open.

When I try to upload from the pixoto (my page) it tells me only valid URL's are accepted.

I had this problem, too. Luckily, I had already cut and posted the URL from the email they sent me into my post.

I did that and a message came back to me saying that the URL was invalid.

Freda if your able, please send along the url of the images. You can also review the rules on our blog post. Scroll down to the section with the rules. With this challenge we were very specific with content guidelines. Hope this helps!

I reviewed the blog posts and there was nothing there that helped me. I also read the rules very carefully and I saw nothing that would disqualify these three photos. Should I resubmit the entries?

Without seeing the photos I can't really help. I'm not sure why the post came back saying 'invalid'. Rules that are getting a lot of people... the door has to be easily visible in the photo by our team and it can't be a door that looks like a gate. Not sure if that helps.

Okay that is what I need to do. This is one of the images and all of the doors in all three pictures are the same doors. I'll try another image.

This one looks okay. It fits the requirements. I went to your profile and saw a lot of closed doors or doorways without a door which were disqualified because the rules state the door must be open and visible to our team.

I've re-entered this photo in the challenge.
