On Midnight Train to Georgia in the Photo with a song challenge (24 comments in total)

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?

On Morning Hawks in the Coffee Shops challenge (14 comments in total)

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

In reply to:

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.

On sands of time in the Macro - Grain(s) challenge (5 comments in total)

Well done. Great idea. The background and backlight make this an outstanding picture. They bring out the glass structure at the narrow.

On A Pair of Ospreys on Navigation Buoy in the Where Nature Meets Technology challenge (2 comments in total)

Ha, ha in a way you are right. It is purposely built - to prevent them from nesting on the equipment itself. :-)

Thanks Ruth, the UOB building designed by architect Kenzo Tange is certainly more impressive at night.

On Watching You in the Rear View #3 challenge (2 comments in total)

Thank you Ruth. Rear view is indeed a valuable asset in view of the dangers from behind. Perhaps we should wear rear view mirror on our wrist. :)

On Lively in the As vibrant as Clarksdale challenge (2 comments in total)

I will give this top vote if it was in the challenge. The musical bench flanked by two French doors at least brings some cheer in this suitably dreary picture.
