On 2012 Fisrt Spring Feeling! in the HDR best shot challenge (1 comment in total)

How is that a hdr? (Or a "hot" photo, as you entered it in that challenge, too)

On warp 2 in the Abstract in b&w challenge (5 comments in total)

Thank you!
I am a little unsatisfied with it, as I didn't bend the grating properly, so the pattern isn't parallel to the borders.
On the other hand it shows that it isn't a cgi, but created with "real stuff" (from a "do it yourself" shop).

On AL7_2760_F150r in the Perspective correction challenge (3 comments in total)

Great!
Have you "shaved" off the lens hood of the samyang to get more out of it with your D700?

You should made your self made rectification program available, at least this photo is a great endorsement of it (and you as a photographer, of course, as it is the composition which make this so great)

On Fremen Walk Without Footprints in the Dune, the spice must flow challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

FNG303: The Imperial Sardaukars are the equivalent of the Imperial troopers.

Nerd! ;-)

Yes, I guess you're right.
Afair the progression was: nearly nobody used shields because nobody used lasguns because that could blow oneself up.
(and cheap remote operated kamikaze lasguns were forbidden...)

And weren't the sardaukar rather quickly dispatched? As they were a reference to later days janitshars and mameluks: once invincible, but at "the present" just living on their former fame.

But the Sardaukar didn't shoot, because, as how the shields in the dune setting work, this would kill both the target and the shooter.
It was hand to hand combat, if i remember the books correctly (20 years past...)

Nice, i don't know if I want to spend that much time there, but as motiv for a photo it is great, as is how you shot it.

In reply to:

Slynky: Congrats on you finish. Very imaginative. It should be framed and hanging in a room with contemporary/modern design.

Thank you!
I don't know if one should hang it on the wall, if you look at it too long, something may look back ;-)

In reply to:

LeeStar: Awesome photo, and very imaginative how you created the shot. Thanks for sharing your method with us!

Thank you!
I learned that, with this and similar photos, it is important to show that they aren't cgi, to get not that much 0.5 votes (well, one couldn't resist ;-) ); they just should look like cgi at first glance.

On Alien Ribs in the Abstract Photography challenge (4 comments in total)

It is a build it yourself paper lamp?
I have a construction kit for one, and the shapes look rather similar.

This was my favourite; nice distribution of moving vs still standing people.

In reply to:

madeinlisboa: Great work! I wonder, how did you get the color inverted?

Thank you.
The water acts as a lens, the inversion is simple optics.

In reply to:

photo nuts: Brilliant conception. Love the ingenuity!

Thank you, too!
Not so sure about the ingenuity, as I am not the first to shoot this kind of motive, and I was 1 glass short, so I couldn't quite achieve the, uh, "interlocking steps" of the water levels.

barb_s: I had a feeling... very nice, I loved it when I saw it. Congratulations!!

Thank you!
I am always seeing the mistakes and clumys corrections I made, so I am not quit happy with it.
My favourite finished on 5th place, and I thought the 3rd placed would win.

On Creative Filters: Macro challenge (7 comments in total)

There are no macro "filters" -- those are lenses.
Just because you screw it on your lens doesn't make it a filter...
