In reply to:

kkardster: First time I've seen a first place photo withdrawn - what's up with that?

Understood. I wish that caveat was shown without having to read the full rules.

I guess all the best seats aren't right up front - nice shot!

FastGlassLover: Great image!

Man, that see of digital devices is depressing. What a lame crowd.

Almost as annoying as concerts where the people in front of you stand through the whole show, chatting and dancing with each other - like it's a private show just for them.

Interesting how far off the trigger his finger is by the time the shell was ejected. It's nice of the shell to pose its punctured primer!

Might consider a crop that enhances the tunnel effect

On photo Rialto Beach in the Landscape Photo with Natural Framing. challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice image, but the subject seems too far in the distance. I actually preferred a landscape-oriented crop that appeared when I viewed 100% - with wood framing on the sides.

On photo Eskimo Joe. in the Concerts challenge (1 comment in total)

The uninterested audience is a bit distracting but it's still a cracker shot!

On challenge Things that don't make good pictures (1 comment in total)

Hmm, kind of an oxymoron - looking for good photos of things that don't make good photos...

In reply to:

kkardster: Looks like many are ignoring the "must include a visible crowd or group of people" part of this contest!

Checked back today and see that nearly all of the newer submissions do not include the crowd. Perhaps mentioning it in the challenge title might have been a good idea rather than the generic "Concerts".

I imagine some people weren't happy to give up their fabulous views.

On challenge From On High (22 comments in total)
In reply to:

J Mountford: in your rules, you stated this: "If you fell from the place you were shooting would it probably kill you?"
My answer, since my entry was from a footbridge of downtown traffic and up about 20 feet, then it fits that requirement, yet you disqualified it.
Vertigo is subjective, which is why you put the qualifier in there. Falling from the foot bridge would kill anyone, that is not subjective.

He also state " If I dont get a sense of vertigo from your image I will disqualify it". Apparently he didn't.

Looks like nobody's getting in on this one as it's now full with zero submissions.

Thanks. It helps being on a veranda on the island of Santorini when the sun sets!

Maybe not high enough? Is so I'll withdraw.

On photo Schwabacher's Landing Star Trails in the Star Trails challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

kkardster: I thought The Grand was somewhat west of Schwabacher's Landing, not north!

Well, clever in the compositional manner, but the image is obviously a layering of the mountains and foreground over a separate star trails image as clearly seen along the mountain edges. The mountains appear to have been shot in summer daylight as well as there are clearly shadows that shouldn't be there at night. I scored it lower than you due to the misleading title as I see nothing to make me believe these were actually "Schwabacher's Landing Star Trails".

In reply to:

Timmbits: @DPR, impressive, I am not so sure. it is merely a software mod. someone just had to think of it. as for higher res, you don't need to wait for 8k or whatever video to come out. processing power will get faster way before that. and all you will need is to implement another software update to use the whole sensor, and not just a crop of it.

but I really do like the idea. very nice feature.

time will tell, is if their software patent is enforceable, or if there are easy workarounds (like using the whole sensor for example). let's see what the competition does in this department. this might become an interesting feature in the enthusiast category.

I don't know why they limited this to 4K photo mode - perhaps to ensure that it can be applied across more frames than what the standard burst buffer might hold?

If they used the whole sensor along with burst mode, I can see where the image buffer might fill before the focus racking is completed and being left with partial results and a dissatisfied photographer. I guess it's a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Well done and very effective backdrop making it difficult to tell it wasn't the real deal.
