On How Does Nature Do These Things? in the Macro - Something Frozen challenge (1 comment in total)

Congratulations on your first place finish. Having taken a few frost pictures myself, I know how difficult it is to get something this good. I love the swirls. Good work!

On The Engine Driver in the Head & Shoulder or 3/4 Portrait challenge (5 comments in total)

cjf2,
A fine portrait, in my opinion. The lighting is strong and well suited to the subject. The expression strikes me as being real - the man looks weary/exhausted - and perhaps a bit sad.
I like the details of the greasy sleeve, the tattered cuff, and the graceful hand holding the rag.
Congratulation on a well-deserved first place finish. There were a lot of good portraits in the challenge.
Steve

On Mystic Depot in the Mystical challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a wonderfully evocative photo. All that's missing is Humphrey Bogart waiting on the platform. Good work! I expected it to place higher in the finish.

cjf2,
Beautiful photo. As soon as I saw this in the challenge, I knew it would win. I think in black and white it could pass for an Ansel Adams photograph.
No train, though. Usually your shots have trains. :-)
Seriously, wonderful photo. I can always tell when I hear myself mutter 'wish that was my shot'.
Cheers,

Steve.

On BIG YAWN photo in larrywong's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

I just finished looking at all 1400 photos in the 'Best of 2014' slide show. Only a handful stood out for me. This is one of those few. It's a really cute shot, but I'm sure you already knew that. I'm glad I saw it here. Hope it's one of those chosen for the front page.
PS: The football camp shot is great too. Good work!

Points for the clever title. Of 1400 photos submitted so far, I think yours is one of the better ones. Cheers!

On The Happy Blacksmith photo in Peter Evans's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

An honest working man with a good outlook on life. I like the theme, and the drama in this photo. After looking at all 1400 photos in the 'Best of 2014' slide show, this is one of the few that I wanted to comment on. Good work in a tricky lighting situation!

Wonderful shot! I've no idea what's going on, but you got a great photo of it. It's a riddle, I guess. After looking at all 1400 pictures in the 'Best of 2014' slide show, this one stood out for me. Good work!

A very dramatic shot. I looked at the slide show - all 1400 pictures in the 'Best of 2014' section. This one stands out. Good work!

I looked at all 1400 pictures in the 'Best of 2014'. This was one of my favorites. I like this cat! He looks like one with a personality. Great photo! I like the straight on view, the direct stare.

Imaginative and different. I looked at all 1400 pictures, and yours was one of the few that stood out. Good work!
I imagine the noise must have been deafening - and the jets were probably very loud too! :-)

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?

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.
