I pulled my photo. It wasn't even meant to be a real entry (told Chewy before I posed it) but more so prove a point that a good portion of the photography out there of people is meant to LOOK candid, but actually isn't so how are people supposed to tell? I believe they can't and I had an issue with the person running the contest "judging" what they deem fit as a candid shot or not. Now if I get a "candid" shot of me from my wedding, is it really candid? I paid the lady to come shoot, didn't I? Yet on the same level, I didn't know she was taking the photo at that exact moment so I wasn't posed and ready for it. The line for me is just too blurry for this "theme" and I just wish it was more concrete and either vastly open to all interpretation or as specific as possible.
However, I'm just gonna shut my damn mouth now and let it go, nobody cares anyway and they shouldn't - these are supposed to be for fun, not tutoring sessions. Sorry for forgetting that time and time again.
