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!

Lovely photo! You chose the perfect shutter speed to show the water moving. Nice lush greens - you can almost hear the rushing water! Good work! My top favorite in the challenge.

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

That's a wonderful photo! Be sure to back it up carefully - it will become more valuable as time goes by. They grow so quickly.

On Pepper_3 in the 2nd Place challenge (2 comments in total)

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.

On Rowboat Painting in the Pinhole action challenge (2 comments in total)

You made good use of the pinhole camera's characteristic soft-focus look. It does look like a painting. Good work, chrisby.

On 3rd Place challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wildbegonia: Host,
In your rules you should ask to include the link to the challenge where the entry got its place, not simply the title of the challenge. The Challenges page has not being met as a challenge by DP so far. Its search engine is at its best obsolete. Despite promises in the distant millenium past that it would improve to make Challenges search more efficient. Example, go to Challenges page and type 'Macro Metal' , and cross your fingers if you get to the searched challenge or better yet, light a candle to St. Anthony, patron of lost objects, in hope that you find it somewhere.

Wildbegonia,
Try Google for finding old challenges. "dpreview.com challenges - then the name of the challenge"
Doesn't always work, but when it does it's a lot quicker than going through the challenge history pages on DPR.

On Michelangelo's dream in the B&W face challenge (3 comments in total)

There were some excellent portraits in the challenge. This one stood out because it reminded me of Paul Strand's 'Young Boy, Gondeville, France' circa 1953. The same direct expression - although not as intense.
Good work!

On Keeping Watch in the Shades of Grey in Nature challenge (1 comment in total)

I like your photo because of the 'surprise' factor. At first I couldn't quite tell what it was, and then suddenly - it's an alligator, size large, and really close! Good work!
