friiskiwi: So why use a thumb that contains people? ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
karaflazz: Nice! ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
kyricom: Hey folks... lit up, does not equal "shiny" ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Kyricom: Um, actually, according to google, it does: shin·y (shn) adj. shin·i·er, shin·i·est 1. Radiating light; bright. 2. Bright from reflected light; glistening. 3. Having a sheen from being rubbed or worn smooth. ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I think as long as the light is dominating the shot is a strong gleam or flare, it might seem less than shiny. ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
kumar: it can be studio shot ? ? ? ( 5 years and 2328 days ago )
kyricom: Ummm... looking something up on Google (or many other internet sources) is a good example of why education is in the state it is in this country. But, even that definition is useful. "RADIATING" light would mean the light eminates from IT, not the other way around. The sun might be shiny, the moon is not. The moon "reflects" light? Yes, it does. So does absolutely every single thing that can be detected by human eyesight. That's why you "see" it, it has reflected enough light to be detected by the human eye. So, if you want to buy that, it would mean that a shot of absolutely ANYTHING would be on theme, rendering the guidelines useless. No, you need to look at your whole definition, not just the parts you want. The reflecting section continues and says "glistening," - as in "reflective," or "mirror-like." Or, we could turn to the REAL experts and look in the Oxford English Dictionary (those folks who are the acknowledged foremost authority on the English language) when they say "of a metallic, polished, smooth, or glossy object: To be bright or resplendent; to gleam, glisten, or glitter with reflected light."

friiskiwi: Thanks Kyricom, let hope this is what we will get; Oxford English Dictionary say "of a metallic, polished, smooth, or glossy object: To be bright or resplendent; to gleam, glisten, or glitter with reflected light." ( 5 years and 2327 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Oxford English Dictionary say "of a metallic, polished, smooth, or glossy object: To be bright or resplendent; to gleam, glisten, or glitter with reflected light." A very good definition for this contest....thank you ( 5 years and 2326 days ago )
