On Close up in the 1:1 aspect ratio: close up photo challenge (1 comment in total)

I like this shot. You must have been literally 'in his face' with a 34mm lens though?

On Goofy in the A To Z - Letter G challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks for your comments. I enjoy adding a little comic relief now and then but I have found that it doesn't seem to appeal to everybody. I was in two minds about cloning that trim out but decided to just darken it as it was the end of the wall. I had already added a gradient filter to the white wall and didn't want to overdo it.

On Stairway to ... in the Stairs #2 challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks. It's a combination of HDR and light painting. I think it was a blend of about 6 images.

RuthC: This wonderful photo makes me smile each time I look at it. What a fantastic and detailed close-up this is, Zol Straub; you must have been extremely pleased when you viewed it on your screen.This little fellow would be an Orthodontist's delight, with his over-shot jaw.... imagine the years of work necessary to fix that bite! Ruth :-)

Thanks for your comments. Once I captured him, he'd stay still and I managed to take quite a few shots for stacking, but the moment I moved the little bugger he made an awful din. When I released him he stayed in the same spot for several weeks.

Nice shot Miroslav. It's a shot that makes you look twice. The first time you go ... huh?

On Bath Time in the Macro - Water Droplets challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

km25: Relfections or refractions?

Technically you are correct, however, a TRUE reflection on a water drop would be extremely difficult, and I suspect have very little detail in it. But since you brought it up, I will try it just for the exercise.

Thank you for your comments. I had many, many 'practice runs' before settling on this shot.

On Eat me! in the RED challenge (4 comments in total)

How can anyone give this a 0.5, let alone 3 of them? Lovely work, deserving of a much higher place IMO.

In reply to:

vin ramundo: Great shot why would anyone give you a half star?

Unfortunately I suspect that half stars are given by some to artificially enhance their own poor performance, very poor sportsmanship and contemptible behaviour.
