  • Commented on photo P7118841 in the Geometric challenge

    Love the photo. Hate the lazy and meaningless title...far worse than having no title at all.

    Well-deserved win. Lovely composition.

  • Offered in freshwater and saltwater versions??? I don't understand. If I have a saltwater version, why on earth would that not work perfectly in fresh waters? (I understand, of course, why the...

  • Commented on photo Living on the Edge in the Living dangerously challenge

    I'm not sure if this meets the challenge theme. "Risk should be obvious in the image."

    I don't see it. The ground could be 2 inches below the chipmunk. . . there's nothing at all in the...

  • Commented on photo Alone in the somethings missing - mirror challenge

    To my eye, the subject in this image is clearly the child...my eye goes directly to her. If so, then this is not a great choice for this challenge, as neither she nor her reflection is cut off in...

  • Commented on photo IMG_2081-bw in the Winter people challenge

    Really like the image--quite cute composition.
    Really hate the title--lazy, meaningless, and far worse than having no title at all.

  • Commented on photo Winter walking in the Winter people challenge

    I tend to love images of people using umbrellas. But this photo has zero indications of winter. Rain does not equal winter at all. And the photo was taken in March, which is a month almost no...

  • Commented on photo The Cold Women of New York A73Q2730-1-2 in the Winter people challenge

    I like the image. I really dislike that you identified yourself in your photo's caption . . . not cool to do in a DPR challenge.

  • Commented on challenge Winter people

    EXX,
    I'm confused by your post. I am not sure in what way "contrast enhancing, sharpening, etc..." suggests a color image.

    Per the host; there were no DQs re this issue. But when a rule says,...

  • No RAW? This is a camera for beginners, not for serious photographers. (If it was a camera with features that a pro or serious amateur would use, I'd definitely consider a camera like this for my...

  • Nice story for April Fools Day.

    Question: Where does one buy one of those arm thingies? No stores in the LA area seem to carry them, and Amazon.com is out of stock until mid-June.

  • 12 bucks a year sounds great, even if used only as a third backup options.

    I have about 9 TB of photos (RAW + TIFF & PSD). How do I get my photos from my computer to the cloud? Obviously, I...

  • Commented on photo DSC_0195 in the High speed photography challenge

    I think this shot is much more in keeping with the challenge theme than your other entry. You did a great job capturing the 'decisive moment.' If this had been taken at a different time of day,...

  • Commented on photo Avaree at the tracks in the Strike a Pose challenge

    Congrats on the win. Vox populi . . . the voters have definitely spoken. You already know you'll have my vote at the "DPR image of the year" challenge, at the end of 2015. :-)

  • Commented on photo _MG_4506 in the Macro - Something Damaged or Broken challenge

    Love the image. Hate the lazy and meaningless title...much worse than having no title at all.

  • Commented on photo Window Meet BB in the Macro - Something Damaged or Broken challenge

    Clever idea for this challenge, I think.

  • Commented on photo broken antenna in the Macro - Something Damaged or Broken challenge

    Ruth,
    But it sure *looks* broken. When I saw this photograph and its caption, I had to smile. For me, some of the most successful animal photographs are ones that anthropomorphize. (Or whatever...

  • Commented on photo tap in the Macro - Something Damaged or Broken challenge

    Is this a macro photo? It's a close-up, to be sure. But I don't think it's an actual macro.

  • Commented on photo Contemmplating Spring in the Strike a Pose challenge

    Damn you. With such a heartwarming story, I now have to raise the score I had given.

    Plus a few brownie points for you, and for all dog-rescuers, out there. Now stop, before you melt even more...

  • Commented on photo Cute pose in the Strike a Pose challenge

    No worries. It is a really cute image, and (the clothing rule aside) fits *perfectly* into the challenge theme.

  • Commented on photo Contemmplating Spring in the Strike a Pose challenge

    Well, it is a really adorable dog, so I get the urge to submit the photo. :-)
