Outstanding image. Should have placed much higher.
A remarkably mediocre image. How it managed to place in the top fifty is ... not really much of a mystery when we look at the submitter's challenge history.
Mark Forman: I have over 14TB of images and Canon offers just 10GB free.Let me see now. That means that I will have to pay for the remaining 13,990 GB of storage with them.I don't think so.I store backups in mirrored form and have offsite storage as well on Smugmug which has been doing this for years without issues.
No storage limit per se, but if you want to store RAW files, you have to pay a premium.
What an unusual hull design. I'd love to know more about these boats.
viktoriskra: Exquisite shot! My 5 stars won't do it enough justice.
Thanks for that strong rating, Viktor! It's one of my very favorite captures.
Impressive capture! I love the nonchalance of the subject bird—as if it's saying "Yeah, dude, whatever."
Steve Throndson: Jezsik,
Great photo! I thought it one of the best in the challenge and voted 4 stars (don't often go that high of late) I always thought that a wedding was a wonderful opportunity given to the photographer to make something to last generations. You've done it here. Not sure if it shows 'bliss' or perhaps 'exuberance' or 'sheer, mad joy' - or something you can't even put into words.
Thank you so much, Steven. A considerate comment is worth more to me than a high ranking. You are right; I should have used "exuberance." I appreciate you taking the time to leave your thoughts.
jezsik: "Put a Border and Title Watermark on the photograph itself." That means the title must not be on the border. There are many non-compliant entries.
Sorry to come across as a pedant, but given the common confusion over rules, it's worth noting that you've over-complicated this particular rule. "Include a watermarked title" is sufficient as it makes no restrictions on where the watermark should appear. Having one rule that specifies the location and another rule that overrides the original is confusing.
Magnificent as ...

I'm calling BS on this one. Neurological science has shown us that the act of remembering an event causes our memory of that event to change. In other words, we don't really remember what we remember (and the more we remember it, the more it changes). Hard to believe, I know, but that's what scientists are reporting. Taking a picture, while a bit of a distraction, accurately records the event and will trigger associated memories.
Is there a story behind this? It looks like it was transported from the 1800's!
Love the color on this.
I rather like this one! I particularly like the color contrast and that you made sure to blur that taxi. Nicely done!
Nice use of selective color!
Love the color contrast between the water and the sky.
That would look amazing as a large image on the wall. Beautiful!
So THAT's how crop circles are made. Really nice treatment on the image.
Le Kilt: Nice shot, well composed :-)
A surprising number of Asian people dress up to visit the cherry blossoms!
