On Woosh ....!!! in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Couple of days late, but I wanted to comment on this one. It was my favorite in the challenge. I don't often vote 4 stars, but this photo really impressed me. I like the 'time-travel' theme - the contrast of ancient and modern. The detail is impressive too. Great work!

On After The Fire in the As Time Goes By (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Wildbegonia,
Thank you for your comment. No, I didn't use a tripod - I own several, but I'm lazy . . . .
This was shot with a G9. I think it was sharper than my G12 - but it was noisy at anything over ISO 200, and had no swivel screen. I guess you can't have everything.
Steve

My very top favorite in the challenge. It should have finished much higher - for imagination and technique. Great work!

On Path in the Curtains challenge (1 comment in total)

There were some excellent photos in the challenge. I liked yours a lot. It certainly met the 'abstract painting' suggestion of the host. Good work!

On Window in a provincial town in the Curtains challenge (2 comments in total)

Very nice photo! One of my favorites in this challenge. It didn't quite match the 'abstract painting' suggestion of the host, but it has wonderfully intricate detail in the curtains, and the cat is perfect. Good work!

On Vydra River in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

My favorite in this challenge. I like the lush greens, and the deep-dark look to the image. You chose the perfect shutter speed. I can almost hear the water rushing. Good work!

On If still-life objects had eyes challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve Throndson: Many of the entries so far - and also the host's sample photo - seem to contradict one of the challenge rules:

"The object portrayed in the image with the imaginary eyes, has to be a NON-LIVING OBJECT, i.e., a still-life object (no animals, humans, insects, and the like)"

And there are entries that do not have the explanatory note that the host asked for to explain the perspective.

So, will there be disqualifications?

OK - I think what you mean is that the camera must be seeing what a non-living object might see.
When you wrote 'the object portrayed', I assumed that to mean the subject of the photo - the object being shown or portrayed.
So, can the subject of the photo be a living thing?
By the way, I appreciate your challenge idea - it's a learning experience to think about what viewpoint a photo has - who or what is telling the story. So a big Thank You! for that.
Steve

cjf2,
Thank you for the kind words. It didn't really take long - maybe an hour or two - and felt more like 'play' than work.
