On photo Fever Dreams in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Lifted, on placing third in this week's challenge, with your fishing pier entry, in your signature pink and blue colours and tones, with dramatic black contrasts. A very moody, end-of-the-day landscape.

On photo Feeding the Fledglings in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, DigitalWalnut, on second place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge, with your barn swallows' family portrait. This picture did very well in another challenge recently, and it is just as popular in this generalist challenge, where you are competing with a very diverse range of subjects and different photographers. It must be difficult to capture a swallow just landing, but you have managed to capture one with a tasty morsel in its mouth, and a family demanding to be fed, all in beautiful colours and clarity.

On photo Crash and Boom in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)

Just one word to describe this picture, qhenson, SPECTACULAR! It absolutely deserves first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. Both your excellent capture, and the mighty landscape is quite awesome. The darkness of the foreground allows our eyes to concentrate on the jagged mountains, forbidding, with the breathtakingly beautiful sky above, in all its turbulent magnificence. Wow!

On challenge Local Park (2 comments in total)

IMO, 150 entries in any challenge is too many in today's climate of voter reluctance. It is difficult enough to get voters to participate when the limit is 50 or 70, but entrants and voters tend to turn off when confronted by larger numbers of entries. Much better to have two challenges of 75, than one large one.

It appears that some of the rules are fighting with the challenge theme!
I think there will be some fairly confused or bruised entries in this challenge.

On photo Stick with Mom in the From Little Things, Big Things Grow challenge (1 comment in total)

What a great capture, evancj, and it deserves this top place in the challenge. The colours and contrasting textures of the mother moose and her foal are beautifully elicited, while the softer colours of the background grasses highlight your subject. An excellent example of the challenge theme.

On photo Not so ugly ducklings in the From Little Things, Big Things Grow challenge (3 comments in total)

Congratulations, alberto_b, on placing second in 'From Little Things, Big Things Grow'. Your swan family is an excellent example of the theme of this challenge. The clear water of the lake reflects the blue sky, and this makes a beautiful setting for the adult swan overseeing its eight small, well-behaved cygnets.

On photo Feeding the Fledglings in the From Little Things, Big Things Grow challenge (3 comments in total)

Congratulations, DigitalWalnut, on your excellent picture of these hungry swallow fledglings, and it has won you first place in 'From Little Things, Big Things Grow' challenge. Capturing the parent swallow as it landed would be difficult, capturing it with a tasty morsel in its mouth would be even harder, but you have gone above and beyond that with the whole family there, lined up and demanding to be fed. Fabulous colours here, and beautiful textures on the plumage of all the family members. A superb example of the theme, where demand will initiate supply.

Ed at Ridersite: Not sure where that 1-star vote came from?

Nice shootin!

An unknown member whose number is A125D992 generously gave out 30 x .5s, 14 x 1s, and 6 x 1.5s. Nice, huh?

On photo Milky Way Over Piseco Lake in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

What a beautiful rainbow of stars, bprice21, and it deserves a top place in this week's challenge. Your post-processing and stacking of this panorama has given us this unique view of the Milky Way. The deep blues and pink colours of the sky are stunning, and the whole image makes me feel very, very small. A wonderful picture which you must be very proud of.

On photo Fly Union in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

Congratulations, Flor Tempra, on second place in this week's challenge. Members here at DPR know I really like insect photography, and encourage entries of this subject in many of my challenges. Here you have captured not one fly, but two of them. You have excelled in capturing the amazing details, colours and textures of this pair. Yet I cringe each time I view this photo, knowing that there are several hundred more of the annoying little fellows as a result of this union. (I know they do a great job of cleaning up the environment, I just don't want them landing in my lunch.)

On photo McMurdo magic in June in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (12 comments in total)

man4mopar, this is truly magnificent, and it absolutely deserves first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. We can see activity at the McMurdo Base, the ice pier is more complete than it was a week ago, while the sky above has an amazing light show which we are privileged that you share with us. Technically it must be very difficult for you and your frozen fingers, to keep your camera functioning in such biting cold. We appreciate your fine efforts.
