  • I haven't been around, obviously. A family medical situation seems to be ongoing ... but inevitably it will resolve. I just get distracted sometimes. Kudos on the competition win and applause to ...
  • I second that. Wonderful entries and worthy champions! There were so many choices ... rising to the top of this challenge was no easy feat. Brenda

    Wow, that Exhibition Gallery is jam-packed with terrific shots! So is the Comp, but much smaller numbers. Excellent theme. Sorry I've been away more than here lately. The slideshows are such a ...

    I'm a bit of 1, 3 and 6. I shoot for the artistry, the line and form, and whatever else comes along. But my #7 category relates to my poetry. I often use my photos as springboards for text, and ...

    Ahahaha, Trond! If you're a Maple Leafs fan, or even a Canadiens fan for much of the time, then you might think that nobody plays hockey here. :) Definitely a fun experience. But I suspect at least ...
  • Replied in Hey Brenda,
    Thanks!! It was an interesting experience, for sure. I had done two indoor karate tournaments earlier but nothing like this event in size or duration. And given that my gear isn't all that ...
  • I'm sorry I wasn't really here for the last competition; I managed to sneak in a single shot for the Exhibition but that was it. I was actually engaged to shoot a massive photo project for a ...
  • HM's in this challenge than I can ever remember doing for any other collection. There were just SO many terrific entries! I had to acknowledge them all somehow. I can easily imagine any one of ...
  • But I have an extra and can't decide what to do with it for the Ex. Aaaaaah! It won't be a competitor as it is very personal but I wanted to share it. Aaaaaaah, again. Congrats Shirley on your fine ...
  • A fine win and now a fine theme. Doesn't get better than this. Brenda
  • Wonderful shots! This is my home. I grew up beside the Minas Basin near the upper end of the Bay and now live at the lower end in Yarmouth area, where it opens into the Gulf of Maine. You've ...
  • How wonderful that you just stepped in and helped out with running this one. What a great group we have here.
  • Replied in Oh my gosh!!
    The Exhibition is phenomenal. Wow, talk about choosing your very best shots ... The Competition is also excellent, as always. Many fine entries to choose from, specifically shot to the theme. I had ...
  • I will dream up some entries now. People may notice my Ex entries are often done with a Canon 650D these days, but that was a bit beyond my control. I got the camera with Airmiles on behalf of ...
  • Two exceptional galleries! I enjoyed looking at each entry. The thumbnails don't do them justice ... they demand a larger-format view. A challenging theme that has been so well interpreted by everyone.

    Lovely collection as always and a great theme. I've not been around much (at least not with the camera) owing to rain and rain and more rain. Talk about repetition. Sunny today, though! Brenda
