On challenge Cat (Entry must be cropped to a square format) (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

RolliPoli: Geez... cat pictures. Who'd 'a thought it possible?
The cute domestic cat; humankind's favourite predator
and destroyer of native species. In the interests of 'balanced coverage' perhaps the next challenge could be pictures featuring the remains of dead song birds. ...just saying.

in all fairness, there are more challenges for birds than cats. like many animals cats do what is in their nature. if you dont like cats, dont look at cat challenges. simple enough isn't it???? just saying.

Ruth, I hope everything works out for you. Your challenge is one of those I always look forward to. Even if I don't always have the time to vote, I always look at the photos and enjoy them. Take your time, take care, God bless, and we will be waiting patiently.

there were soooo many great pix in this challenge, that i found it very hard to find fault with any. i loved every one of them. should have this challenge more often. i know these pix were hard to catch in focus at just the right instant, but with a little practice i could see the focus improving and the challenge filling up with a lot more entries. good work everyone

exellent use of light, focus and composition. I see myself sitting in the sand, feeling a soft salty breeze and listening to the surf. Oh, yeah, and only a cold beer could improve it.

On challenge The American Cowboy (6 comments in total)

I agree, some very good cowboy pictures. i really enjoyed judging this one. I have tried shooting photos at rodeos and on ranches -NOT EASY. It's hard to be in the perfect spot when the action happens. It's even harder (unless you are familiar with the specific activity) to know the exact split second to capture the photograph at its most spectacular. Some of these did just that.

this isn't a cute kitten; it's a commercial! isn't this an inappropriate means of advertizing?

On challenge Cute Kitten (2 comments in total)

the lightbulbs cant be construed as kittens (cute or otherrwise). Looks to me like a cheapshot commercial in an otherwise good challenge. I hope it'll be gone by voting time because it's taking up space for a cute kitten.

On photo Style Points in the Accident challenge (1 comment in total)

by far - my favorite... was this guy driving by the seat of his pants or just sitting on his tail lights? as a retired cop, most of the other pics looked like a very busy and dangerous work day.

That bit of rivalry has certainly made both of you very good photographers. Keep up that friendly competition. I wish I had a shutterbug buddy to kick my butt once in a while. ha ha.

On photo Winter daze in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

Hey DJDarbs, congrats on that wonderful photo. It must be a popular place for photographers. It's the same location as Ozziebadger's photo. The only difference is that they were taken about 15 to 20 ft away from each other and 10 to 15 minutes apart. You two must be friends and shooting buddies. I wish I had a buddy who liked to shoot, too.

HEY Ozziebadger, are you and JDDarbs neighbors? I noticed that the 1st & 2nd place photos in this challenge are of the same location. They were shot about 15 to 20 ft away from each other and 10 to 15 minutes apart. That's pretty cool that you two got the best in the challeng together.

HEY, ozziebadger, do you and darbs live in the same place? Your photo and his are of the same location; but taken only about 15/20 ft away from each other and perhaps 10 to 15 minutes apart. Great pictures for both of you.

I didn't expect the kind of creativity and imagination that went into these pix. I thought they were all incredible; it was hard to vote. I enjoyed these immensely; great work, everybody.

On photo Cheetah in the ZOO - Lion, Tiger, Jaguar, Cheetah... challenge (1 comment in total)

Now, that is the portrait of a hunter. That killer gaze is focused on its next prey and the cheetah is tensed, low and ready to chase.

Cheetas have the black tear that runs down from each eye and goes past the back of the mouth. They're also more slender and lighter of weight than leopards. This one is a leopard: nice photo and it does have the look of a predator.

I, too, am a cat lover. There is no such thing as a boring cat or picture. But I think the wording of the rules would have better served the purpose of your challenge if you had asked for pictures of action cats. The majority of pix in this challenge still shows cats that are lying down or looking bored with their lives. They are fast, agile preditors; they ambush, play, climb, cuddle. They entertain and make us laugh.

I'm surprised this was not thought of before. They look like the Packmeyers that I used to put on my pistols; made gun handling very comfortable and offered a more steady control when shooting. I wonder if it enhances one's comfort, control, and aim. I'm not sure I would put holes in my cameras. Packmeyers always fit perfectly on a pistol without damaging the firearm.

Flying things. My pitchers used to take out the wasps on my front porch.
