  • 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 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 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 _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.

  • Clever idea for this challenge, I think.

  • 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 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 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 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 Contemmplating Spring in the Strike a Pose challenge

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

  • Commented on Strike a Pose challenge

    Really clever idea for a challenge. I am voting on Sunday (PST), so I don't know if any entries were DQ'd. The animals entries should all be out, since they are clear violations of the "fully...

  • Commented on Cute pose in the Strike a Pose challenge

    I love the composition. And it does fit the part of the challenge that says "lighthearted" and the part about getting viewers to smile.

    But also, a clear violation of the "subject must be *fully*...

  • Commented on molly in the Strike a Pose challenge

    (As I posted on another image), I have to give all animal portraits only a 1/2 point score, since this image violated the challenge rules . . . "subjects must be fully clothed." This model is...

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

    In terms of photographic skill, I think this is an easy 5.0. In terms of the model's ability, it's also a 5.0. But I'm not totally sure how well this fits into the challenge theme. For a theme...

  • Commented on Daaahling........ in the Strike a Pose challenge

    Love the facial expression and the tilt of the head, and also love how the thumb & finger balance out the subject's head. The fingers being cut off don't bother me, since it's such an unusual...

  • Commented on peñalara (33) in the Strike a Pose challenge

    Lovely photo of the landscape. As an environmental portrait, it falls short for me, due to (1) the tiny size of the subject's face, and (2) that the face is in shadow. Given the above, it might...
