A virtual time machine. Did I say virtual? I meant virtuoso. Awesome.

On taking a bath in the cold treats on a hot day challenge (2 comments in total)

Mirrorless Crusader,

Blur or that which is less than spartanly detailed is a part of photography. In this photograph, perfect clarity would have lost the sense of motion and would have been useless. Bokeh is an art form. Your criticism is insulting, not constructive. To insult is your right, yes, but you live in a glass house if you can't integrate aspects of photography that are not sharpness.

On Slight improvement? Nikon D610 First Impressions Review news story (6 comments in total)

This makes D600's worth about $1200 now. Way to recognize your mistake and make a profit for screwing up. Go NIKON!

On Fibonacci forest in the Spirals in Nature challenge (10 comments in total)

It's a great shot but using this over and over again for challenges is kind of cheesy and needy.

On Tyra Banks makes cinemagrams fashionable post (15 comments in total)

To Dennis:

'Why not just use video?' -- Video commands your vision to move where it takes you--these 'cinemagrams' appear to heartily jumpstart the imagination, allowing you to sail into further movement as your heart desires. Of course, I cannot speak for anyone else, but this is what I believe is the unifying element of this art form. Still photography can command a sense of movement, for sure, but this medium shoehorns rather effortlessly that sense. This possibly means its use in theatrical conveyances such as an actor's face turning back to a flight of fancy from an antagonist who pulls a gun at that moment. Video would solve that moment's future with the boredom of seen before conflict. This medium, done well, would repeat the action while lending clues of all the minutiae (A monogrammed handkerchief with a red letter 'A' for example) that led up to the confrontation, savoring the subtleties of lighting, composition, as well as the weighted action of cinema.

On People of Zagreb in the Group Chat challenge (3 comments in total)

I can hear the quote now, "And then my wife told me I could go to hell if I kept watching that young skirt on TV and then she went into the kitchen and had a heart attack....a real one!"

Excellent timelessness here.

On Homeless of New Delhi in the Plight of the Poor or hungry challenge (3 comments in total)

Whether you got permission or not the person is not identified by face so the shot is morally valid in my opinion. On top of that it's a great one.

On Sunset in the Snow Men or Ladies of course. challenge (2 comments in total)

What makes this work well is the stark, Tim Burtonish design of the snowman along with the angle you chose to give it more life--the unfinished rough edges compliment the cold surroundings: Like a Snowman in the Wild. (On second thought also, it looks kinda like Beavis/Butthead )

Yes, it's a bit over shopped. But you did a great job nonetheless. What a lovely planet we live on.

On TheAtlantic.com sorts the real Sandy photos from the fakes news story (32 comments in total)

It confuses me when people say photography is dead due to photo manipulation. I don't use photoshop. I simply enhance sharpness, color, exposure. Photography feels quite alive in me.
