MarioSS: Very nice composition.
Very nice picture Ed!
Dear They call me Hans,My disqualified picture has been taken at f16 with a BW ND 3.0 1000x neutral density filter giving a f ratio of 2048 if my calculation is right (it was mentioned in the technical info box).The rule is F22 or smaller. Please correct me if I am wrong but I think an aperture of F2048 is smaller than F22.Have a good day,Mario
MARTIN LEV: A very interesting challenge But there first 2 entries are below the specified shutter speed .As laod out on the rules.
Are we to keep to minute or not?Thanks for the challenge. Regards Martin
Hello Martin,Please read the rules, it is stated that ... a minute long or longer. Mine is 65 seconds!Regards,Mario
Very nice composition.
TheBlackGrouse: One of the few really wild ducks in the challenge. Should have a higher ranking, it is quite difficult to get a decent picture of this species, at least in Western Europe. The positioning to the left is on purpose I presume, breaking the rules.
Hello TheBlackGrouse,It is not a fantastic image but I like it too. The main difficulty was to carry my very long and heavy lens (telescope) on location. What I remember the most is the quietness of that day.
I like this one very much!
Stevequad: Beautifully done.
Thank you Steve, and have a nice day.Mario
Very nice composition and colours.
Beau Cliché LearningForeverIHope.
LearningForeverIHope: I don't know that it were cliché to start with but it sure isn't now. I hope you win over mine.
Chikubi: I like it. Whether you win or not, at least you're trying to think outside the box. Good job and good luck!
Thank you Chikubi and have a nice day.Mario
That is a good one Chikubi.
Kreber: I saw this phantastic composition only now. Congratulation! I am sorry but the rating is much to low.
Thank you Kreber. You have some nice pictures in your gallery too!
Can't wait to see!
