On Merry-Go-Round in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

Conan D,
Just noticed your photo. It's delightful! Great technique - you got everyone sharp and there's just the right amount of blur in the background to suggest speed. You must have been moving pretty good to get that much blur at 1/80 second. Looks like a fill flash too? Great work!

On Stray Dog photo in Steve Throndson's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Michael,
It's very much a composite - three old negatives. Montage is a great way to use the photos that didn't quite make it on their own. :-)
It doesn't seem to be very popular here. When I look at gallery tags for 'montage', all I find are my own pictures, and, of course, I've seen those before.
Thank you for the kind words! I appreciate knowing that someone looked and liked.
Steve

On The Month - September challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This was difficult to vote fairly, since a considerable number of shots were taken at any time of the year, other than September. September entries received a higher vote from me than ones taken in February, July, December.....

Ruth
Capture date rules = no restrictions
What does that mean to you?
Can a photo not say 'September' even if taken in some other month?

Fantastic photo! I thought it would have placed much higher. You should be really proud of this one!

On Rescue of a Doll in Chains in the APS-C Sensor Challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

I thought your photo was one of the best in the challenge. From the votes, it looks like a few other members thought the same. It shows some imagination, and gave me a smile. Thanks for posting.

On waiting for Alice in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

One of my favorites in the challenge. More than just another flower picture somehow. A bit mysterious and intriguing - perhaps it's your choice of colours, and the enigmatic title. Good work!

Lovely photo. Very moody and still. Perfect depth of field for the shot.

Excellent photo! Having tried some Milky Way panoramas myself, and they were more difficult than I expected. I admire your technique, skill, and patience.

On Scratch in the Subtlety....Nature challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks for your comment. No, the ISO 400 was an oops! The G12 begins to get noisy there.

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!
