I would like a reason for why two of my photos have been disqualified from the PWC 116: COMPLEMENTARY COLORS: RED-GREEN competition. One is a red poppy on a green background, the other is a red tulip on a green background. I can't see any reason for the disqualification.

The links are above, Jasenka. I suppose it could be because they are sort of similar to two of my others, but then there are 4 photos of a black kitten with green eyes on a red background and none of them have been disqualified.

Hello Chrissie, we are really sorry about this. In this challenge there is no limit how many images one user can post. Report team member made mistake in disqualifying and I apologize for it. I have put both of your images back in challenge.

I must admit I was surprised at some that were disqualified...and at some that were not...all down the the personal choice of the people checking them I guess. Out of interest, how many people look and confer when judging these PWCs

I have to agree. I have had pics have the category changed or disqualified, like one of my white flowers entries was reported because someone said it was not a garden flower and it was put in wild flowers...well I took the picture and I know I took it in a garden, so I feel whoever did it was trying to eliminate competition. I can't believe people would be that small. I respect my fellow photographers work. Except all that overworked, over edited stuff.
