Damn. I was going to enter mine, but it's virtually identical to this very nice shot. Nice...

Can't believe I came in behind Elvis Parsley. :-)

On stairs in the Stairs #2 challenge (2 comments in total)

Nicely done. "Escheresque" look, too.

On Rock Solid in the Visual Puns challenge (1 comment in total)

I thought of Rock Star on this one.

Rule #2 also strikes me as strange. I typically don't vote in challenges I enter. Seems like a conflict of interest.

dmanthree: Why would anyone buy this instead of a GX7?

Uh....haven't seen that. Got any samples?

In reply to:

Artistico: I'd love to see a proper MF mirrorless camera one of these days. Does someone remember Mamiya 6 and 7? Fuji 645 and 690? Very compact cameras that handled really well. I don't know so much about the Fuji ones, but my Mamiya 7 had some absolutely cracking lenses. I'm sure there must be a market for mirrorless digital MF cameras. If someone makes it cheap(ish) and makes them compatible with legacy lenses, and everyone will want one.

I shot a Mamiya 7II for a few years, and while I loved it, the transition to digital would be tough. The angle that the light hits the sensor in the corners might pose problems. Also, using the 7II as an example, the lens selection is limited with no teles save for a coupe of short and medium units. That said, I'd love to see it done.

Yes and no.

Honest to God, why? $11,500? For the name? Really?

On Minox B in the A Photograph of your old Camera challenge (2 comments in total)

True. But the reaction I get from people who remember this cam from "Mission Impossible" is great. IQ is, well, not up to iPhone standards.

Damn. I can feel the heat from the flash all the way from here. ;-)

On Beautiful Bangles challenge (4 comments in total)

The samples are pretty defining, but I was sort of half-hoping to see a shot of Susanna Hoffs.

:-)

Thanks! The Coyote Buttes is a "target rich" environment. I'll get back there someday.

On Florence Style in the City of Florence - Italy II challenge (1 comment in total)

I'm loving this challenge. When in Florence and Rome I shot quite a few pics of the Italians on bikes in the city and had a couple of pages in the resulting photo book of just them on their bikes. Scooters, too. Glad to see others see the attraction of shots like this. I love it.

On 8000 Meters Altitude challenge (29 comments in total)

Maybe it was a typo. Maybe the host meant 8.000 meters, not 8,000.

On 8000 Meters Altitude challenge (29 comments in total)

No worries. I'm surprised that the three shots entered haven't been DQ'd yet since none of them meet the mandate. I mean rules are rules, right?

On 8000 Meters Altitude challenge (29 comments in total)

OK, let me get this straight: if someone submits a legitimate pic, the challenge isn't impossible. If the challenge really is impossible, no pictures will ever be submitted.

Yes. These are a great idea.

Petz, I would change one thing about your excellent suggestion: make it the b best quarterbacks. That way we have something new to argue about.

:-)
