108: e-m5 / sigma30 , great combo it seems

Yes, it is especially considering how inexpensive the Sigma lens is.

Congrats. Nice gradation of color and shade. Very good atmosphere that makes the pine stand out.

On photo Glass Vanes on Brush Aluminum in the Patterns challenge (1 comment in total)

There are reasons to confine to realism and there are also reasons to liberate from realism. Enhancing visibility is one example. If it serves a purpose even pp to the Oort Cloud and back is not too much. For this Challenge there is no processing rule specified. The glass vanes against a bare aluminum on a cloudy day make a very dull picture, so I take the liberty to enhance the image. Thank you for sharing your opinion which is well taken.

Great picture, brings back old memory. Is the shutter speed really set at 38 sec? Wouldn't the smoke be blurry in such a long exposure?

Fantastic, spot on exposure. The lighting is atmospheric and the facial expression captured tops it all. A great picture to wake up to. Congratulation.

RuthC: Congratulations, pen araneae, on coming second in 'Nature in One Colour' challenge. Your blue hydrangeas are almost unbelievably blue, yet I have seen just this depth of colour in hydrangeas, so I know it's real. You have achieved interesting textures and details in each floret, and each floret makes the whole flower head a beautiful subject to admire. Ruth :-)

Hi Ruth, thank you very much. As usual, you are so good for words which bring out all the nuances of how I saw and felt about the flower when I took it. It was taken one late summer afternoon in Victoria Canada. I think the light made all the flowers in the garden more photogenic.
