My piece:

I'm not sure, did I put a tap to join the challenge, although it doesn't matter so much.

You did check the box. We try to catch when you guys forget but if an entry is not added PM any Mod to fix before deadline.

I know you are new and learning and at first dithering is really cool and looks and feels 'pixelly'. Dithering is essential and really can be beautiful but try to keep yourself in check so you don't overdo it because too much dithering can look bad too. Here you overdid it a little bit. Not bad tho. Your best work yet.
