On Cat-o-graphy 1 challenge (3 comments in total)

I just noticed the rule "no homes", so I guess that is why my photo got dq'ed. Ok.... can live with that... but as you noticed... how the actual dq was executed... that can be approved.

If you are so anti-social and incapable of normal communication, you should not be hosting any challenge. Just DQ'ing at random, not providing any reason... well... how would you call that if someone did that to you?

You could argue that humans are just mamals and part of the natural world as well... these two certainly seem to be roaming around free :)

pocoloco: I am not so convinced a compact camera could not have captured that unique moment : http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3225500706/photos/160652/turtle?inalbum=beneath-da-surface

Reviewer shot a turtle a few feet deep, stating that that could not be done by a compact, well, i included a photo shot with a compact 5 years ago of exact the same situation... and even a better one... so don't tell me a shot like that can't be one with a compact... total nonsense...

Hawaiian sea turtle, couple of feet deep, passing right underneath you... no... impossible for a compact... let alone an aging compact... really... I just don't know how my compact was able to do that... already 5 years ago... must be mistaken... can't be possible...

Me neither before I took this pic. I think it is called an orb weaver spider. It's in Costa Rica.

On Nearly deleted photo helps shot putter secure gold article (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mekka Man: I am not sure if this photo proves anything. After a shot putter, discuss thrower or even javelin thrower release the projectile, their momentum is what usually pushes them out of the legal boundaries for a good throw. We would need to see a few more frames of and after the release to confirm the validity of this throw. The judges must have viewed other frames to make their decision.

No... after the throw, they are not allowed to step outside the boundary at the front. If momentum even causes them to tip the ground outsidectge boundary, the shot is foul. The atletes know very wel f they put up a decent attempt or not, if they feel it was a crap attempt after the throw, and after the projectile landed, they just leave the ring at the front, or tiptoe the ground outside tge boundary so they invalidate the shot to prevent the jury from heaving to measure it.

Great timing. I know its hard to capture a moment like this. Deserved a higher ranking in my opinion.
