This was one of my favourites in the challenge. The man on the left has such a great expression.

I like your photo. You have a good eye for composition. This has visual harmony. One of the best in the challenge, in my opinion.

On photo After the tide goes out in the Nature's Graffiti challenge (2 comments in total)

I thought this was one of the best in the challenge. It fit the theme perfectly, and it's well-seen, well-composed, and processed nicely too. Excellent photograph in my opinion. Congratulations!

RuthC: Congratulations, Steve Throndson, on your well-deserved third place in this 'Nature's Graffiti' challenge. This is a beautiful capture, done in a very imaginative way, and reminiscent of cave paintings from aeons ago. Colours, tones and textures are excellent. A real-life abstract. Ruth :-)

Thanks, Ruth!

You have a style, Jess. I was pretty sure this was yours before I even saw your name. Nice balance of symmetry and asymmetry, and the colours are really intriguing. Congratulations on a well-deserved first place!

Thank you, cjf2.
And thank you, petit58 - even with my rusty high-school French I can see that is a compliment. :)

On photo Winter at Parc Omega, Qc in the Winter in nature challenge (2 comments in total)

I don't often vote 4 stars, but I did for this one. It really captures the sense of a harsh winter. Canadian winter, eh? The deer has lost a horn, and I suppose that makes it difficult to dig through the snow for food. Good photo for the challenge!

On photo Swans in the Snow in the Winter in nature challenge (1 comment in total)

I thought this was an excellent photo for the challenge. It's really got a 'wintery' feeling to it. It was one of my favorites when I voted.

On photo squirrel in the Winter in nature challenge (1 comment in total)

This was one of my favorites in the challenge. The snow on the squirrel's head, and the toothy grin are wonderful details. It's a delightful photo!

On photo Dark Thoughts. Black Looks in the Low Key challenge (11 comments in total)

Wonderful photo! The expression is pensive, perhaps sad, and very human-like.
Nice BW conversion too.

Wow, two first place finishes on the same day! Both excellent photographs. I can't imagine how they could be any better. Congratulations.

On photo The Skull and I in the Selfie challenge (2 comments in total)

Gerald,

My favorite in the challenge - because it has an extra level of meaning that many of the others missed. I like photographs that make me think or feel. The expression fits perfectly - surprise, confusion, and a bit of fear too.
Thanks for this.

Steve

On photo Night Ride in the High speed challenge (3 comments in total)

jmgir,
The shot was done some time ago with a film camera on a tiny tripod taped to the Yamaha's gas tank. It looks faster than it was. I had the shutter on 'B' and held my finger down for a few seconds. I tried 3 or 4 frames, and this was the only one that wasn't blurred beyond recognition.

Steve Throndson: This was one of my favorites in the challenge. The expression made me feel sympathetic and, at the same time, curious as to what the child is thinking. Certainly not your standard portrait. A brave entry!
I'm curious what a '1968 Thorium Takumar' is. I guess I can Google that.
Cheers,
Steve

Charlie,
Thank you for the information. I have a SMCT 50mm f/1.4 thread mount lens - but I've no idea how old it might be. I think the SMCT lenses came after the Super Takumars. I suppose there's a site to look it up by serial number.

On photo Sunset Drink in the Alcohol challenge (2 comments in total)

This was one of my favorites in the challenge. It's very dramatic, and a bit abstract too. I think it captures the magic and the promise of the bottle's contents. 'In vino veritas'.
Cheers!

Very dramatic shot! I'm sure it took some time to set up. I appreciate the craftsmanship that went into it.

On photo LOVE & ALCOHOL in the Alcohol challenge (1 comment in total)

My favorite in the challenge! It should have finished much higher, but the challenge voters are, as Rodney Dangerfield used to say, a 'tough crowd'.

On photo Under the Stars in the camping challenge (2 comments in total)

Thank you, ms18. The sky was amazing. The photograph is a dull replica - even with the 'zoom' filter trying to make it look the way it felt at the time.
