  • I've just typed Shala Shala's name in Search, and the offending member has been removed from DPR. I'm sure he/she will pop up again under some other name causing more mischief. Sad, isn't it? Ruth
  • That is DEFINITELY not acceptable behaviour in the challenges. I would contact the host of the Drones challenge and alert him to this. He may already know that something unusual is going on. Altern ...
  • In reality, the large spider is probably the female, and the smaller one is the male hoping to mate with her BEFORE she eats him for lunch. :-)

  • Commented on C H I C K S.H E N in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    What an evocative picture, PERCY2, and it deserves a top place in the challenge. Great colours and contrasting details in each of the big and little birds. Beautiful! Ruth :-)

  • Commented on Aphrodite's Rock in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    This is a wonderful picture of our vast Milky Way, Alex Apo, and it deserves to be in a top position in this week's challenge. I really like the contrast between the dark browns of the rugged...

  • Commented on The Guardian in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Another beautiful sunset image, ozziebadger, and another top finish in this weekly challenge. The pandanus trees with their long strappy leaves, and the black volcanic rocks remind me of summer...

  • Commented on GoldenHourRace in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, rmw18k, on coming first in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge with this dramatic capture of a female cyclist working hard to win her race. The bright sunlight catches her body...

  • Your attractive flower was a frangipani, or plumeria, which grows on a tree, definitely not a lotus or waterlily.

  • Sorry, information can't be added to the submission unless you withdraw it first and re-submit. This can only be done during the submission period, not during the voting. And if you add information...

  • Thanks, ConanFujiX. Yes, I have 'upgraded' since this shot was taken, but I still stay with the small P&S Canons because my arthritic hands can't hold anything bigger and heavier.
    Ruth :-)

  • Noisy is right! When these little honeyeaters get together they make so much noise with their bickering, chattering and continual darting around. This is a great capture by you of them being...

  • Commented on Shake it baby! in the Bath Time! (Nature) challenge

    What a beautiful capture, Arijit Banerjee, of a Rhesus macaque, and it deserves a top place in this challenge. Beautiful details in the monkey's coat with each hair clearly delineated, and the...

  • Commented on Hold the centrifuge in the Bath Time! (Nature) challenge

    Congratulations, Miroslav_1, on placing fourth in the 'Bath Time! (Nature) challenge, with your very wet little serin, and it is a delightful capture of this European finch. The subject of this...

  • Commented on Tiger Bathing in the Bath Time! (Nature) challenge

    A stunning image, lim yau tong, and a worthy third place in this challenge. Wonderful colours and contrasting details, very sharp focus on the tiger's face and those eyes! You wouldn't wish to look...

  • Commented on Bath Time For Snowy in the Bath Time! (Nature) challenge

    Congratulations, Philip Lanoue, on achieving second place in the 'Bath Time! (Nature) challenge. Your snowy egret is having a wonderful time splashing in the water. Contrast of colours and textures...

  • Wow! That must have been an interesting sight, summicron, and your capture has earned you first place in 'BathTime! (Nature) challenge. Great colours, movement of the spoonbill as well as the...

  • Replied in Question
    No, and there is no opportunity for you to do so. If you tried, your photo would go into your Sample Gallery below the challenge page. Ditto in voting. The host doesn't get any stars below each ...
  • Commented on Sunset Jetty in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Another beautiful capture, ozziebadger, and another top finish in these weekly challenges. Soft evening colours, a very serene and peaceful setting at the end of the day. No prizes for guessing...

  • Congratulations, cgriff, on placing second in this weekly challenge, with your beautiful capture of a tiny ruby-throated hummingbird. The name is very apt, and your picture highlights the...

  • Congratulations, pogobi, on a well-deserved first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week', with this amazingly dramatic, powerful image of a thunderstorm. The deep blues and purples in the picture...
