    Sir, you may want to check some of these entries for plagiarism as this can get you in trouble if published. I can see word for word copy and paste in most entries. From A to Z. Not one single change, not one. If you want I can send you links to the web pages they were copied from. (I hope they dont withdraw before then) It's not a fair play when some people just stroll to the internet to copy and paste, then qualify while those who painstakingly research are disqualified. But if this is what you want who I am to point it out.

      I understand... This is a concern for me... As I am looking original writing... you are not the first person to point this out...

    Here's entry #19 who smart enough to probably add his first paragraph. The rest were copied word for word from this link: https://photographylife.com/understanding-focus-in-photography#

      That's sad cause I liked his first paragraphs more... They were short and straight to the point... Was actually gonna ask me to edit the complicated parts...

    And some others too...it's no use pointing them out. Sorry guys. Someone copied my entry WORD FOR WORD sometime ago and I know how it felt. Guess the rush and limited time is the reason they copy.

      • 4 weeks ago

      Your content is very wordy... I want it to be straight to the point... no fluffs... You should be able to cover everything I requested in 5 pages including images... This is a photography book... by the end of the chapter, I want the reader to: know where to focus, how to find and choose focus, and how to use focus creatively... Anything additional content is waste

    I've submitted an entry on a full chapter, as requested in the project description. However, I have only provided content as the prize may be insufficient to cover both content writing and layout design services. If there is an increase in the prize pool, then I may provide a full layout as well. #increaseprize

      Hello thank you so much! Your comments are noted. I will work on it. Just to clarify, is the book an introduction to photography over all? So I know if I'll dedicate a page to explaining the terms and basics in photography?
