On The Stare Down in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Mick: Please forgive me in advance... I hope this doesn't come across as being rude. I believe this image has had some major photoshop work done to the underside of the Egret, because that bird must have some huge cojones, yet I don't see them. ;o) BTW, great nature shot and good luck in the challenge!
Mick

Thanks Mick, looks like the voters didn't think much of it though.
The pretty pictures always seem to rate high, while something that is relatively difficult to see and capture gets ignored.
Oh well...
See ya,
Phil

I can't believe the low votes here. Nice photo of a cute kitty.
It's hard to get a good face in a black cat and this one looks great.

In reply to:

The Mick: Love the beautifully exposed Spoony, Phil. I'm a big fan and hope to be able to come down and visit one day.
Take care,
Mick

Thanks much Mick. I enjoy seeing and photographing the pink birds almost as much as I do our happy alligator pals.
Come down any time!

On 3rd Place challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: What is great about these "runner up" challenges is the obvious high quality of photographs entered. It is a feast for the eyes to see all these wonderful images collected in one place. While they didn't win a 1st in their previous respective challenges, any of them are deserving of a top placement. My head is spinning trying to select a winner here.

Yeah but that's also what's not great about them too. Unfortunately somebody's excellent photo is going to end up being in 100th. place.
Probably none of these photos deserve to be placed lower then first page 1-16 but sadly that's the way it's going to have to turn out.
It's going to be even worse if there is a challenge for only 2nd. place finishers and totally crazy to do it for first place entries.

Brev00: Great software! I got it free a couple of months ago and use it often. It operates as a plug-in in Elements so is quite convenient. You just have to withstand all the offers for the full package.

No good then on 32 bit W 7?

Too bad voters don't factor in degree of difficulty. This is much better then 11th. place.

On Totally Tele challenge (4 comments in total)

Yeah I don't get this one at all. "Razor thin DOF" on 75-135?
Go long? Get tight? Big lenses?
If its supposed to be a joke challenge then I don't get the joke or the point of the challenge.
