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.

Thank you for the comments! It's always nice to know that someone took the time to look at a photo and write a few words.

My favorite in the challenge. Colourful, direct, and happy.

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.

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!

On Crusty in the Macro - Rust and Corrosion challenge (2 comments in total)

I don't very often say this - but 'nice composition'. Lots of texture and detail, and the colours are rich. The contrast of the blue water sets the rust off. Good work! Congratulations on a well-deserved win!

On A passer-by in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Powerful photo! That's life in the city, in our time, I guess. The earphone cables really add to the sense of indifference and isolation. Looks sharp enough where it needs to be sharp that you could crop it a little. Good work.

On 9_pixel in the Using these Letters Only - II challenge (2 comments in total)

cjf2,
Thanks for the comment. The challenge 'theme' was pretty vague. This is just doodling.

On 1:1 aspect ratio: Macro shots challenge (14 comments in total)

The host is running a whole series of challenges with different aspect ratios like 9:16 vertical landscape, and 1:1 aspect nature landscape.
I believe that '1:1 aspect ratio' here means a square crop - and has nothing to do with the magnification ratio.

On Roadmaster No More in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice photo. I like the strong light and simple color scheme of rust and cool blue tones. Good work!

On Those big brown eyes in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

Very good technique - almost no noise at ISO 3200! I thought this was one of the best in the challenge.
