On Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed article (81 comments in total)

I have the Gitzo and it is light and easy to use. The lack of carrying case seemed odd but in the long run I bought a case from a company that specialized in cases/bags. I had a benro tripod and their bag was a nuisance.

Thanks for the incredibly detailed review. As digital photographers we need to be computer techies too!

Glad to hear you are alright. I had a similar experience a couple months ago when, at low tide, I turned my ankle on a slippery rock on the Pacific coastline in Alaska. Severe ankle sprain which has ruined the rest of the trip and first part of my summer. But I did get these photos before my mishap:

On Getty and Flickr to cease partnership article (19 comments in total)

I see a lot of people here saying they're glad they never gave images to Getty. I'm confused. Can't one pull one's images from Getty after they've been submitted to Getty? Does Getty license them in perpetuity? Can't a Getty photographer terminate the relationship and go elsewhere?

There are a few entries that were NOT taken in the daytime - night time and evening shots are not allowed, correct?

A closeup of dragon-boat racers straining from the pain of exertion would have been my submission, if I hadn't been so ironically slow.

On Birds. challenge (19 comments in total)

When you say : "Upto Five entries per each user is allowed but, they must be different birds photoes."

Do you mean they must be 5 different species of bird? Or can they be 5 photos of the same species? If so, how can you tell if they are 5 different seagulls?

On a curious donkey approaches me at the Monastery in Petra in the Ultra Wide challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Olivia,
I was crouched down at the time trying to get a low prspective of the Treasury.
As the donkey approached me I scrambled to close down the aperture (for incresed DOF) and change the auto-focus point to a point on the right. I was quite fortunate to get this done in time so that I was able to compose the photo as I did. I would have liked to get the donkey more to the right of the shot but was happy with what I was able to acheive under duress. I did crop this image in order to push the donkey more to the right.

I did.
From the minute we laid eyes on him we knew he was special. We met him at a pet store. The store brought several pups (one at a time) to a room, placing them on a table before us. The first thing he did was walk over to the side of the tab where our credit card. He saw it was a Platinum card and he knew then and there that he would live a carefree life full of love with us.
Actually he is a BIG dog trapped in a small dog's body. He is the leader of our pack of 3 dogs. He bosses the dogs in the park as well. He's a terrier through and through.

There's more photos of him on this Flickr gallery:
