On Chinese lantern skeletal remains of fruit covering in the Naturally Hollow challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is really beautiful ajf2, and deserves a top place in this 'Naturally Hollow' challenge, with your Chinese lantern seed pod. You've captured the wonderful delicacy of the golden lacy skeleton, and enhanced it with its softer mirror image. Ruth :-)

Thanks for your kind comment Ruth. I have always loved Chinese lanterns and was quite pleased with this shot.

On Glory days well they'll pass you by in the Spoof challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks for your comment.

I can't understand how you had 3 0.5 scores on your post processing image, I thought that was great.

Brian in Montana: Congratulations ajf2! This is a great shot and worthy of the win. I have no clue why anyone would give it 0.5 stars - most likely a saboteur! Perhaps the PP was too much for them? Anyway, a beautiful image - it would certainly pass the "worthy of hanging on my wall" test. Regards, Brian.

Thanks Brian, I didn't think it would do as well as it did, as I am aware that quite a few people don't like so much PP.

Steve Throndson: I like your photo. The thoughtful expression reflects the challenge theme very well. One of my favorites in the challenge.

Hi Steve thanks for your kind comment.
The photo was taken on a lovely summers day on the Severn Valley Railway near Kidderminster UK.

On Birmingham Library in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)

Thanks Ruth

The view is looking up between the windows and the outer facade of the building. I have a couple of views of the outside of the building in my gallery and one form the inside.

The facade is reflected in the windows. I have a view of some of the outer wall and from inside looking out in my gallery

Harvey Grohmann: Powerful Image. Looks DRG (later DDR) Class 99 Loco's> What I wouldn't give to see this! Wonderful image.

Thanks for comment, the picture was taken at Drei Annen Hohne in Germany. The loco on the left is a class 99 as you say. It is heading for Brocken as a service train and a Mallet hauls a charter train to recreate the parallel departures that used to happen here on the Harz Railway.

On Stanley Steam Car Model 63 10hp built in 1911 in the Old Tyme Wheels challenge (3 comments in total)

Yes it was a bit of a wild ride, we were chasing a group of 8 Stanley Steamers through the English countryside. They can go suprisingly fast but as soon as they come to a hill nearly stop. We had stopped to take some pictures as they drove past and had just caught them up when I took this shot. I was videoing for a freind at the time through the windscreen of his van and I am sorry to say the video is a little wobbly at this point. He is intending to put the video on youtube shortly.
