On Canadian Chess in the Chessmen challenge (1 comment in total)

Where is the one minute move timer clock? Chess outside during the winter such as this is also a speed sport, is it not?
Great take on the subject, well done with your originality.
Cheers to whom ever submitted this entry ~ Kipper

Antique Locks as in shipping (Marine) or as in security (Doors, chests etc.)?
Thanks ~ Kipper

CalBoy87:
I gave your shot a 5.0, along with the 30th place entry. Both of your submissions were excellent for different reasons.
Yours evoked an emotion that I would love to be able to capture, one of tranquility and the quietness of nature. Beautiful image, very well done and thanks for your submission.
Cheers ~ Kipper

On Whiskers in the Large Aperture challenge (2 comments in total)

The clarity of your image is one of the reasons I gave you a 5.0. I would love to be able to take an image with this degree of sharpness and colour.
30th IMHO is well below what your shot deserves - take solace in the fact that you have a great shot (at least in someones mind~mine)
Cheers ~ Kipper

Like this shot. The actual scene may not have been what the Challenge was aimed at but for me the overall shot is good, well done and you should be happy with your capture.

On Spiral shell in the The Beauty of Seashells challenge (1 comment in total)

As I posted to ysal's entry, a wee bit more depth of field and IMHO it would have placed higher.

A wee bit more depth of field and this would have been a keeper.

On Shipwreck - Full color only. challenge (1 comment in total)

Sadly some very interesting entries to this challenge. From the small coracles to the full sized examples it is unfortunate that this is the end. I must also commend many of the entries as they have been captured with a lot of thought as to the story the image is telling.

On Windmills challenge (3 comments in total)

It is apparent from the entries that Kinderdijk is very well represented, and rightfully so.

On Romantic forest light in the Dark sunset in the forest challenge (3 comments in total)

Fireplace33:
An excellent image and deserving of 1st place as the voting shows.
Your explanation of both your prints being displayed and then offered for auction with the proceeds going to charity is an excellent way to gain exposure and give back. You are to be commended, and your site contains some awesome images.
Cheers - Kipper

On The Last Ray in the Dark sunset in the forest challenge (1 comment in total)

Roberto:
Your 19th place in the recent Challenge ‘Dark sunset in the forest’ was one of my top three. As disappointing as this result must be to you, your image with that splash of colour in the middle ground is excellent, your timing was right on. As I showed my wife your entry and told her of my disappointment with its placing, her comment was that it may have been voted down because technically it isn’t a forest. She may be right, still an awesome capture.
Very well done Sir.
Cheers for now - Kipper

On A To Z - Letter A challenge (17 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nigel J Watts: Well---- that finished very quickly - Just a thought is there a record, the fastest time a challenge has finished - I guess it's less than 1 day - maybe it's less than 1 hour(...maybe 1 second...). The are 100 entries(maybe I should of added more),
Thanks everyone
Nigel

Please keep the number of entries to 100 and no more. History of these Challenge discussions has shown that many members will not vote on Challenges with more than 100 entries.

I will also agree with ‘babalu’ that English should be the only accepted language for this Challenge as it could easily fall off the rails if additional languages are permitted.

Just my thoughts as this could be a very interesting Challenge, knowing what subject each of us has chosen well in advance.

Good luck to all ~ Kipper

Liked your Cape Blanco, Oregon lighthouse submission. The inclusion of the foreground detail is a nice touch as I feel it really adds to the picture.

On Praktica L in the A Photograph of your old Camera challenge (1 comment in total)

So an image of my first 35mm, the Praktica L, thanks for the memories.

Awful shots, expensive film, developing and printing costs. Prompted me to actually take a couple of photography courses (slow learner, needed more than one) but did eventually teach me F-Stops and so depth of field, and shutter speed with the ability to “freeze” action, or not.

Thanks ~ Kipper

On The wine glass challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

barb_s: i think almost all shots in this challenge were good shots, well thought out and composed. Unfortunately placing lower is not really an indication of the quality. I feel like they are a stand out group!!

I just wish I could have gotten rid of the person who gave out quite a few .5's. None were .5 entries here. Sheesh!!

Unfortunately my 18th place finish received two 0.5 votes that I feel were not deserved. Like some other entrants, our entries were potentially a threat to someone and all were within the theme of the Challenge.
Oh well, as I have said in a number of Challenge Discussion Forums previously, sometimes these 0.5 votes are actually votes of a good job that someone is afraid of and should be viewed as a badge of accomplishment.
Great Challenge Barb – Thanks and congratulations to all participants.

Barb:

Looking forward to preparing an entry for your challenge but know that I will be trying for 2nd place and down.

christian jacob’s entry will be your winner and I am sure it will be exceptional. Never the less I will soldier on and do my best. Try to think outside the box and come up with a unique approach to your Challenge.

Good luck to all.

Cheers ~ Kipper
