On High Quality: Portraits challenge (6 comments in total)

Wikipedia: "A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer."

How many pictures in this challenge are compliant with the definition above and out of the rest, how many are "High quality"?

In reply to:

VENTURE-STAR: Excellent video. Before I started watching, the questions in my mind were lenses and reflection control. Both were well answered. I wonder what would happen in an emergency if you were carrying two substantial cameras in such a confined space? Would they get in the way of an ejection or escape?

In case of an ejection all that gear could hurt you really bad. Prior to ejection you have two options (if you have a few seconds):
1 - put it aside in a position where it cannot be hit by the upward going seat
2 - put in on your lap (or better between legs) and leave the aircraft together
Having the camera strapped to your neck (especially a big DSLR) might break your neck, as the forces during the ejection exceed 25g.

In reply to:

Rajamurthy: Are pics of scaled models allowed?

In this case, it is allowed based on the description.It must be something about an aviation museum. For instance the pilot and sailor statues in front of the Naval Aviation Museum are allowed. The same for the buildings, uniforms, pins or other artifacts belonging to an aviation museum.

Nigel J Watts: That's why it's called impossible ????,
Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvmBLqjaZxY&feature=player_detailpage

or similar web page - interesting - I wonder how they do it

I don't know if you intended that but it also could be in a jet or rocket engine. Their nozzles (and intakes in the case of a jet engine) are wide openings that allow a good view inside the running engine.
Jet engines are combustion engines - nobody said it should be the piston engine of your car. The same applies to the steam engine.

On Inside a Combustion Engine challenge (17 comments in total)

The camera must be inside the engine or the picture should see the interior of the engine through a hole? Maybe you should clarify this in the rules prior to challenge opening.

tarakanchik: Wow, a ton of beautiful pictures in this one! I can see most of these hanging on my wall, having said that though, as a wallpaper some of these would be a little to involved. As in, If I had to look for an icon among a rich colorful field of flowers I'd probably get a bit frustrated. I guess I like my wallpapers simple :)

I think that you should set rules to encourage real photography not fantasy photoshoping. The images (I can't call them photos) placed on 3rd and 8th places are such obvious Photoshop compositions! At least the mosque on the 8th place has a huge amount of white fringe that I could call it as a bad edit even for a Photoshop contest.

Some very good indeed. Given the generosity of the theme I had very high hopes and one week later I 'm fairly disappointed as I found (too) many sunsets, beaches, trees and flowers.

Composite image - hard to believe that you would get such a big Moon with an 18 mm lens.

AcerAntec: Nice idea for a challenge, thanks Alex 236!
Depending on the number of entries--if large enough: would you consider another Modeling challenge under focus stacking requirement?
I'm longing to see some nice, full-in-focus realistic renditions!
(Too bad all of my models are still concealed in their boxes.)

I will
