  1. I truly appreciate this post. I have been looking all over for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You have made my day! Thx again!

  2. I have been checking out a few of your stories and i can claim pretty nice stuff. I will make sure to bookmark your website.

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

  4. Bravo Shutterbug! You always make things so easy for us to understand. I salute your views and effort. Thank You! For being our guiding light.

  5. With respect to LIN Team and Editor, Admin Team, Support Team, Contributors of LIN and Commentators, let me share my views on issues that have been raised in comments of this post ‘EU Photo of the Month: August 2008’. I request all to consider this respond on behalf of everyone that I have mentioned above.

    Any ‘photo competition’ announced by any organization in the world has its own set of rules and criteria according to their organizational objectives. Likewise ‘EU Photo of the Month’ of Everest Uncensored also has its own ‘Life in Nepal Guideline’ which every picture contributed by photographers must fulfill before it gets featured here in ‘Life in Nepal’. Undoubtedly LIN is instituted with the objective of recognizing the talent and contribution of photographer.

    Besides, it takes LIN Team several round of deliberation to arrive at the result of 6 runners-up pictures every month and announces EU viewers to vote one picture as winner ‘EU Photo of the Month’ which is not an easy job for sure. We must appreciate this effort by LIN’s Team.

    I think viewer’s vote is hard to accuse as biased. If we believe in practicing democratic rights, we have to accept this verdict of EU voters, if not one can call it flaws of democracy. EU visitors are welcome to practice their democratic right to vote, comment and give feedback. Both positive and negative comments, feedback are obvious things of any post and we do respect every individual views.

    Reading the respond made by LIN Editor I felt that she/he became offended by comments made by viewers. LIN Editor should not respond in pang of hurt caused by comments. Better take them as opportunities to work effectively in coming days. Thus should not respond to any comment in particular in rage and in rush.

    By the way, I agree completely with LIN Editor, Let’s hope that on “170th World Photography Day”, EU-LIN gets better photographs from talented photographers, and not get disappointed next time. And let’s make every day ‘A photography day’ because living life each day with joy is worth preserving.

    And yes I am surprised to read one comment which claims being one of LIN Editors and admit that, ‘description of “Save Me Now” is the creative composition of one of his/her effort. ‘Life in Nepal Guideline 1.0’ clearly has clearly STATED in it’s SUBMISSIONS CRITERIA no. 2 and 3 that before submitting picture photographer must write caption (no longer than 30 characters) and description which is informative to the subject. My advice: don’t let photographers get lazy by doing their job. More importantly ‘caption and description’ given by other than photographer vary immensely with the thought photographer has in his mind when s/he takes the picture. So stop this practice and stop seeking credit for doing photographer’s duty which is mentioned in LIN Guideline 1.0.

    This Sutterbug always believe in making constructive comments and creating space for friendly interaction which I think is lacking here in EU. I request Admin Team and LIN Editor to address any query in time to make this platform even more popular and lively. You guys have our good wishes and support.

    Please feel free to disagree my views.

    Good day!!

  6. LIN Editor,
    Thanks for your generous reply. I don’t mean to be arrogant, sorry if I sounded so. I have never mentioned that , this one or that one should be first or second so I wrote “I choose.. ” in my comment. Don’t I have the liberty to write what I feel ? I respect the competition and winner’s photo. Keep it up that so we may see the best of live photos later on too.
    Thanks LIN Team to put up such a nice captions for the photos, that enlivens the photos.

    “Even comments and questions of show are part of it, it shows you that the show is getting popular.”

  7. P.S.:
    Hello, Sensible One and Mr. Final Judge, the message or description of “Save Me Now” is the creative composition of one of the LIN Editors. LIN Editors don’t just sit around and complain, they are true volunteers and are responsible for all the creative support as well.

  8. Congratulations Ravi!!! 🙂

    and everyone please respect the voice of the public…
    It proves ‘golden hour’ shots are not always the best ones. 😉

  9. Final Judge, though u seem to have knowledge and expertise to analyse the technical aspects of photographs, don’t you think you are being arrogant towards the budding and amature photographers?
    You gave your opinion about the photographs that’s fine. We are glad that such platform as “Life In Nepal” ever existed and going on strong and getting popular.

    “Save Me Now” has genuine message and description. It is indeed a good photograph and Abishesh, the photographer himself is one time winner and that he is generous enough to encourage other contributors.

    “169th World Photography Day” has a journalistic approach and is a candid shot being original, had there been no photograph of such PhotoGrapher’s Rally, EU Visitors wouldn’t have known about such event ever existed.

    Let’s hope that on “170th World Photography Day”, EU-LIN gets better photographs from talented photographers, and not get disappointed next time.

    Among Controversies and such a cut throat competition, “Taudaha..” came out a winner, let’s hope such new contributors be encouraged.

    LIN Admin

  10. I’m thankful to everyone who voted for Taudaha….

    @ Final Judge: perfect judgement.. like Shutterbug use to do here in Featured.. :mrgreen:

    Bhanu dai , Abhisheh dai … thanks for ur lines there…

  11. “Reply to SensibleOne Says: – …or its just because ur picture (i mean the one u liked) didn’t win the title…. hmmm if its true better not to post ur agony here in EU.”

    I read that and it did offend me.

    Let me tell you “Reply to SensibleOne”, my contribution to EU-LIN is purely voluntary and I am least concerned about whether my photograph is chosen for the Photo of the month or not. I’m happy that it met LIN’s photo of the month nomination criteria.

    A good picture is one that has a viewing appeal. And judging by the votes cast, “Taudaha..On the way to Dakshinkali” deserves to be the picture of the month.

    I wonder, why do people make issues out of such things.

  12. Ravi, “kag karaudi garchha bel pakdai garchha”
    When the competition is about voting, none have the right to raise question of biasness.
    So no worries mate. You are the winner.

    (Ssh but I voted other than your photo).
    :wink 😉

  13. @ SensibleOne …so u gave vote for “Save me Now” ? or u were compelled to vote for other pictures?
    If u were compelled to vote for other pictures then its Biased voting, i agree..

    “photographer of leading photo of this post has been so busy running upstairs and downstairs of all D2Hawks offices asking people to vote for his picture” I think there’s something going on between photographer and the SensibleOne.

    or its just because ur picture (i mean the one u liked) didn’t win the title…. hmmm
    if its true better not to post ur agony here in EU.

  14. Analysis:
    1.Majhi dai: Low quality photo, but nice capture.
    2.Act of fishing: Just a lucky photo, nothing special about it.
    3.Taudaha: Normal picture, HDR would have make it somewhat better.
    4.Save me Now: Nice message, very good photo quality.
    5.Souvenir from Nepal: Nice pic quality, good for post cards.
    6.169th World Photography Day: Who chose this photo for competition? (Some one seems biased)

    So I choose “Save me Now” to be the best. Just no competition.

  15. Honestly ‘Save me Now’ deserve title photo of the month. Both in the message it carries and technically in a photography’s aspect. Well LIN should ponder over idea of whether voters decide who is the winner photo of the month. I think ‘Panel of Judges’ (who are more experience in photography) and LIN Team should choose the WINNER not by only this criteria ‘voting’. My concern is let the deserving picture win.

    I know photographer of leading photo of this post has been so busy running upstairs and downstairs of all D2Hawks offices asking people to vote for his picture.

  16. if you look at the images carefully, taudaha is the best because it reflects the nature and a certain pleasant feeling… i like the mood of this photograph..

  17. biased! biased!! biased voting!!! Taudaha should not have won. Majhi Dai the best. I voted for Majhi Dai.

  18. hello administrator lai euta suggestion. tyo ahile samma kati wata vote aayo bhanera ni rakhi dinu hola . tyaso gare kaso hola hehehhehehehehhe

  19. go majhi dai go! jityo re ho jityo re majhi dai le jitryo re. majhi dai lai jitau ani macha poli khau.

  20. Pink Floyd ko fan, tapailai bhram bhaye jasto chha, 169th World Photography Day maile nai khichheko ho tesma kunai sanka nai linu pardaina. Ani yo voting ko lagi pics select garne EU LIN team le define gareko standards chha jas anusar scoring hunchha, tyo guidelines ko link bata check gare hunchha…

    Voting page ma aayeko pics. LIN Editors le scoring gareko ho jun totally fair hunchha. Yo ta mero tarfa bata representation matra ho, baaki “Photo of the Month” ko winner kaslai banaune tyo tapai jastai fan haroo ko vote ma bhar parne kura ho. Just believe in “Karma ma biswas gara Fal ko Aasha nagara”.

  21. hoena luna jee tapai le khiche kai hoena tyo photo kina rakheko yahaa. aba aru ko photo rakhera pani photo of the month ko participate huna pahine bhayo k ho yesto . ani yo voting garauna ko lagi pics haru chooose garne manche chahi kasto hola originaltiy nachaine.

  22. Here everyone has right to vote. All you need to do is, use your voting right. Then, biasedness will not exist.

  23. don’t you know votings are always biased! people vote using their own logic whether you call it biased or fair, it is up to you. some candidates campaign for votes and some don’t. i think Ravi is campaigning hard. good for him.
