    Is this new blue background going to stay? I have difficulty reading it, and find the bright white highlights distracting. I absolutely love your site. Just not the blue.

    Thanks for reading my opinion.

  • can we ask you to vote for us? hehe

  • Hi Jody – its not supposed to be blue background – can I ask what browser you’re viewing DPS with? It could be a design glitch that others are seeing also.

    I have the same problem with reading some of the content
    against the blue background. I am viewing this on Internet Explorer

    INTERNET EXPLORER IT BLUE

  • Firefox as well, although I don’t have a big problem with it. Well, blue fading into white as you go down.

    I can post a screenshot if you want to see it.

  • you could simply use css to allow people to change the style without affecting the content. and yes, this fading blue and this brilliant white really bother the eyes..

  • Do you really think so? I love the new look for DPS, it’s a million times better than the old burgandy scheme. Very professional-looking 🙂

  • The colour’s fine for me. Perhaps those that have issues with the “brilliant” white have their monitor jacked a bit too high?

  • or perhaps those that do not have the monitor too washed out… (i.e. white becomes grayish).

  • Don’t take too much stock in me complaining about white though, I’d tell Google to change if I had the chance.

    About this contest though, the chance to win a 1Ds is really nice when combined with the fact that I just got a Rebel XT on e-bay. Another compact camera would be nice too. And a D40 would make a nice present for my sister. Even though she’s been trying to get a D50 or a D70, I doubt she’d give up a free 40.

  • hopefully we’ve fixed the problem now for people – it was a problem with our backend coding that we think we’ve not rectified.

  • To note with this competition.. each image you submit you are handing over selling rights to the site.

    They WILL sell your image, you may still own the copyright but you won’t see any money for it and if you are worthy of winning this competition, chances are you will have a sellable image!!

  • a. yes now there’s a blue pattern fading to white

    b. the terms and conditions explicitly say that they will not take your photo away from you. and how many of us take better pictures that 5000$/pop?…

    Hitesh said, “They WILL sell your image, you may still own the copyright but you won’t see any money for it and if you are worthy of winning this competition, chances are you will have a sellable image!!”

    The terms specifically state that they won’t sell your photo. Are you saying that they’ll violate the contest terms? Do you have some specific example of this happening in the past?

    Or is this an assumption on your part? I can see how it would be easy to make that mistake — if you didn’t bother to look at the contest link at all.

    I know it’s the Internet and all, but can’t someone for once make an accusation and provide some kind of support for it?

  • anton

    I would like to ask if this competition/photo contest is open to everyone? Open to people outside the U.S.?

    Anton

  • one thing. do you have a photo worth 5000â—˜? if so, please participate, otherwise i don’t see the point…

  • Matt

    What a joke, looking at the round 1 “finalists”, some of the photos are a joke. I can’t believe that that is the final 500.

  • yeah but some photos are really good… and those are the only that matter. and maybe you (like me) don’t understand that in stock photography it’s not about the photos it’s about how you can use them

  • Just found this post via the autolink related posts thingy.
    Just an idea:
    Post the year behind the competition dates, maybe?
    😉
    There was no date I could find on the post, had to check the comments for that 😉
