Community Challenge 15: How good is your phone's camera? Show us for your chance to win!

(I’m blaming @louisdi for the history of giving a reason for each number selected, but it’s certainly more interesting than without a reason!)

:seven: might also be the number of birds in the winning photo by @darrels, I’m not quite sure!

Our next category is Landscapes and Scenery, cloudy day, no flash.

There were 27 eligible entries in this category, but one person has already won today, so @amitl will select two winning numbers for us between 1 and 26.

The better half a deck of cards…let’s go with #26

I didn’t win with the animal - bright sunlight outdoors but I found it interesting that the two winners and myself all posted butterfly pictures in that category. Were there more than 3 butterfly picture in that category?

#26 was assigned to the dramatic mountain photo by @wvfisher.

And number :one: brings a win to @Joeybug for his panoramic landscape photo.

Thank you for your help @amitl!


Hi @jonathanw.pdeuwu, I didn’t categorize the subjects of each photo as I made the spreadsheet, but butterflies are very photogenic! I’ll try to get an answer for you when the drawings are over!

I fully accept responsibility for this and for any other such wonderful ideas you’d like to blame on me.


Thanks, it would be fun to know how many other people thought they would make a good sunny day picture. Also since I was the lucky draw for the action shot is that what you mean by someone already won so pick between a smaller number group ? That’s my assumption, especially since I want others to have a chance to win too, I was just curious.

Yes, each person can win only once, so as each person wins, I have to remove him/her from any other categories, and that’s why it’s taking me a few minutes between categories sometimes!

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the opportunity and excuse to take more fun pictures with my phone camera!

Our next category is Animals - indoors with flash.

We had only 1 entry in this category, and my original plan was to combine all the small categories to make a category with enough entries for a drawing.

But as ongoing evidence of my inability to think things through, this was the only category with too few entires. There are no other small categories to combine it with. :woman_facepalming:

With no drawing needed, we will award a prize to @hillarybl for her Santa Herbie photo.


Now we’ll draw two winners in the Animals - indoors, no flash category. This category had 14 eligible entries, and we will pick two winners.

@theresar, please select two winners between 1 and 13.

Twelve because that’s what my husband said.

@louisdi’s idea was great! :wink:

That is just too cool and made my day, thanks! -Theresa (And if there were a dragonfly emoticon, I would have put it here :grin: )


@louisdi is always full of great ideas. Or something.

Your husband’s dozen means that @gigia.epccvz has won a prize with a stunning photo of Miss Dot. :chicken:

And your second selection for this category?

Well done, that’s the number I would have picked for the number of toes on my left foot!
