I sense you are trying to poke fun at something, Mitch, but I cannot discern what.

I suggest reading the caption on the photo Mitch called out.

Aside from Dave's crappy shot (pun intended), my examples break the rules of high views. Often, but not the rule, a photo posted vertically or in B&W tends to get less views though there are obviously the acceptions.

Here's my rule breaker following the lines of the thread:

Backlit:
[photoid=307873]

High sun: (Special thanks for letting this scene in despite the time of day)
[photoid=329765]

Foreground clutter: (Fence)
[photoid=326816]

I tend to think I have one of the higher percentages of "rule breakers" out of total shots in the portfolio on RP.

Thanks Chase! It was originally rejected as PEQ. I suspect that the Screener had never been to the WW&F and thought it was a shot from some type of kiddie park. I don't appeal much, but I appealed this one explaining what was going on, and they accepted it. The kids really get a kick out of the 2-foot handcar, because the diminutive size makes it somehow more approachable....and parents can't use the "you're too small" excuse to keep them away.

I originally interpreted the theme to be oddball shots that somehow made it in despite the rules. I know see that others are taking it to mean excellent shots that made it in because the "rules" were properly ignored by the screeners. I won't pile in with a bunch of my usual stuff, not necessarily excellent :), but I will offer this trifecta.

Backlit, going away, non-standard dimension:

Ditto. So, following Janusz's lead:

My most popular shot on RP was taken in the middle of the afternoon with a complete absence of sunlight:
[photoid=269350]

Backlit... at 10:33pm:
[photoid=277041]

Does it count as "backlit" if the moon is straight overhead?
[photoid=275292]

The foreground was completely in a cloud shadow; you can see where full sunlight begins off in the distance just above the train:
[photoid=300536]

Cloudy:
[photoid=311945]

The infamous "three points of light" shot:
[photoid=272095]

bigbassloyd 07-14-2010 03:34 AM

Ah the three points of light. Oh what memories it stirs. :D

I had to grow some thick skin on here right quick after that was accepted into the db! But, in my defense, the screeners did have the option to reject it in the first place... :wink:

No. That's considered High Moon.
