    Hi there, I submitted my tipster for this competition a while ago, and its been published, but now I am not sure if I added the metatags correctly as I am new to this site... I thought I had, but now I am not sure - how do I check? My tipster is "Multiple Exposure Self Portraits"

  62. mrmaart
    mrmaart ·

    TO ALL - the rumble ended last Thursday the 18th. All tipsters (published or not published) that have been submitted BEFORE the 18th and which has at least 3 tags including "gup", "gupexperiment" - they will compete for the prices!
    did submit your tipster on time but some of these metadata is missing? please let us know before WEDNESDAY 25th of august! this way we can find your tipster easier...

  63. colleenmaria
    colleenmaria ·

    @mrmaart thanks very much. I submitted my tipster well ahead of the deadline. I thought for sure I had included 'gupexperiment' in the tags, but when I search for that tag, my article doesn't come up. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong. My tipster is "Multiple Exposure Self Portraits". Thanks again.

    @mrmaart

    i resubmitted my tipster, whcih was called "Supersampler meets match-box", the new name is "Supersampler + match-box = Collage". All tags are written. Hope it would be recieved. Sorry for my internet connection, I live in Russia and it sucks over here, i guess than i was submitting my tipster on aug.12th or 13th smth went wrong and u didn't get my article. Maybe my wi-fi lagged. I'm really sorry i just realised it, cos I didn't see my tipster published for a long while. I was out of the city, so I just got online. Thanks for the undersatnding and again - my apologises! Cheers!

  65. mrmaart

    @colleenmaria - no worries. we found your tipster too! the international editors will publish them one by one. that's why it could take some time before they appear online.

    Classic × Classic : Using a Leica M3 camera to shoot with the New Petzval Art lens

    I participated in the Kickstarter campaign and purchased my very own new Petzval lens. I can't wait to use with with my digital camera to experience its wonderful bokeh effect. I also wanted to try its effects when using a film camera but the lens has an EF mount. I didn't have a Canon camera. See what I did with it after the jump.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
