Done it ! The idea is wonderful. Now I know why the image is darker near the upper and lower borders.

new2py : your coded indication was very helpful. I was looking in the right direction but with a wrong definition of light (and there are many possibilities). So I started decoding your hint, letter by letter. Before I translated the last letter I was completely stalled. Once I had it, all I read in the forum made sense and I knew in a second (really) exactly what to do and what would happen.

It took several weeks for me to realize that the appropriate tool for removing something are scissors, not a bucket of paint...

Great Challenge! I definitely want more like that. Any hints (to other programming challenges, whether python or not)?

I've been stuck on this one for a very long time - any hints by PM would be gratefully received.

I'm also stuck here since forever. I tried to remove the light, but I see the same thing... only darker.

Using scissors or paint didn't make any fundamental changes.

More hints would be highly appreciated!

Lost on 33...

I've finally made it to 33, although I can't say that I did it all myself. I'm quite lost now, though. I think I understand the rather blatant hints about using scissors instead of paint or filters, but I'm still left with a whole bunch of data points (18772 of them, to be precise), that don't seem particularly enlightening. I'm seeing a word in the poem that might have an interesting double meaning, but all my attempts at using it have failed. Can someone help?

It sounds like you've removed its power, but not its might.

Done! When I finally caught on to what was going on, my jaw dropped. That must have taken a crazier amount of effort than usual.

I apparently didn't get all of the hints contained in the poem, but I still managed to slog through it. Without exception, square is fair.

I'm stuck again.
Maybe my english is too poor, but i don't know what to do with this poem.
Does "remove the light" mean change the brightness of the pic ?
I did it but i can't see any X.
Maybe i'm just on the wrong track.

If someone's still there, a PM would be appreciated. :) :(

Hmmm... I'm feeling thick. I hope someone's still reading this and can nudge me.

None of the things in this thread makes the least bit of sense to me; I see no poem, no Xes, no scissors. I think I'm on 33... at least, if I take my current URL and replace the "pc" with "pcc" I'm granted access to the solutions wiki for 32. I'm congratulated on making it through to a happy reptile, and cautioned that "without cost" is being used in an expressive sense rather than another. Nothing in the source (nor in any of the files included via href) suggests where to go from here... or where to find a poem. Help?

Edit: thanks to hobbyist for the PM nudge, I'm really at 33 now.

does it means something with a lost bottle?

I have got the "X" image, But I have no idea how to remove the "light", I even don't know what does "light" means.

So i look at the beer1.jpg again.

I found the X, but i don't know how means light, power and might (maybe my english is too poor).
Please PM some clear hint or solution.
Thank you
