I don't think the average photographer has any idea how challenging it is to get some of the photos that are submitted. Still trying to get a good shot of Jupiter, been at it for a couple months. You only get so many clear nights on the weekend every month. Then not be sub zero outside so you have to deal with frost on mirrors and lenses.
PaulChapman: Since when have gliders had engines?
Was thinking the same thing
Host, you disqualified my entry http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1740431841/photos/1427720/dsc4867 and it is a coaster see http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Thrill_Dragster I had the name of the coaster "Top thrill dragster" and it's location at Cedar Point amusement park.
Love it. I'm a coaster nut, I don't think you'd ever get away with using a SLR on a coaster here in the USA. If your a coaster nut a trip to the US and Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio should be on your bucket list.
Nice, I seem to notice slight HDR. Am I wrong?
I like the photo, if the depth of field was deeper I'd like it alot more.
Wow, really like it.
Wow, really like it
Really the rules are that tight. I thought this was a photo contest, not a contest who could read and understand fine print. They have conest's already for that, civil service type exams.
Im pretty new at taking phot's but for me your photo was a top 5. I feel like your image got cheated. I submitted 3 photos, I thought the one highest on the list was the worse one I submitted. I'm learning so maybe I'm in left field.
Never realized a flies eyes were so intricate.
