Oops. I think I accidentally sent you three images that were not
intended to be sent to the SI.

They are the images labeled c26. I see you got the correct ones too.
It's OK if you leave them up, but they really are OT.

Doesn't that just sum up the SI?

Someone submits three images that are completely unrelated to the
so-called "mandate", and they get accepted!

The SI is *so* bad, it's completely hilarious!

They obviously don't. I had been wondering why there was no
acknowledgement from their intended destination, and to be resent. Now
the mystery is solved.

What is hilarious is that you make nasty comments about mistakes and
refuse to participate yourself. HEY get this, The SI is nothing more
than a forum for some, who are interested to display their work. If the
submission is not on the theme, so what. Ever;everyubody recognizes it
is such.

If the SI had pretentions of being a contest with strict rules and
actual prizes, you might have a point. But it doesn't.

What baffles me is why some people feel compelled to belittle the SI,
and yet never post pictures or links to their own portfolios. It just
seems cowardly.

I'm not. I liked the pictures, even though they were OT. I
especially liked "The Beak".

Thanks. They did reasonably in my CC competition. The soldiers won
digital image of the month. The Beak scored an 8 out of a possible 9 and
the garden did not do well at all.
However I sent them in error and they did not belong. I am selecting for
my website, winch will go live about mid November and The Beak probably
will be there.
