Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

have another look Chevvy (maybe it needs refreshing for you?) as you definitely have at least three images up as here http://ballet.olympus-imagespace.co.uk/approved/ (look at the 19th and 20th images going down the left hand strip, plus at least one in the middle zone around the same patch)

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

Well the EN Ballet and Olympus have made an absolute Mockery of the who process !

They have approved images from those who broke their Contract and posted before Approval

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

Well done Claire, Chevvy and Brian. It is obviously an achievement to get even a few images approved when a strict and not very transparent set of criteria has to be satisfied, let alone deal with difficult lighting and constantly moving subjects. I've viewed the link, but it would be great to see your approved images posted here.

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

Cheers Zuiko !

AS Olympus and English National Ballet have APPROVED images from thos you did not wait and broke the rules, but still got APPROVED

there seems to be no reason why the rest of us, should not post all the images we want to (with or without Approval)

I can appreciate your views on this, it is always frustrating and disappointing when others break the rules to which you carefully adhere, only to see them seemingly rewarded. However, it could be that Olympus and ENB are unaware that these individuals have transgressed. Just because they got away with it doesn't make it right and I know you are better than that.

John, You are quite right ... However I have both my emails I sent to Olympus earlier this week - because so many of us here and on Facebook were so annoyed that THE FEW were doing irreparable harm to the chances for such another Event, for so many in the future ! there is also an annoyed following on this subject of Fb !

PS and their replies to me

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

I'll kick off by posting my two that got approved (if anyone wishes to see the others I'm happy to email them to you)

Remember, I don't rate these images as my best, all my leaps and other action got blocked

(what they assessed was a much smaller version, less than 2mb with a longest side of 900 pixels )

How did you do that Brian? What did I do wrong? I thought that copying the link on Flickr was enough? Thank you by the way!

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

on the bottom right of your image in flkr there is a curved arrow symbol, if you click on that it gives you the url for the image. Simply click on that and copy it then paste it into the message box in which you are typing. You will see a long stream of alphanumerics in the place you copy, go to Advanced and preview and it will magically transform into you pic

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

Brian and Claire (Claire I looked at yours on Flickr ) are great images

Has anyone heard who won the Box ?

and has anyone received their promised "Critique" of their 10 images yet ? This I am most looking forward to, in order to know why my others were not approved - as part of our Contract was a critique of the up to 20 submitted images

I will upload mine, when I find the HDD with them on
