I like this bw version much more than the color version. Great job capturing this tree.

On 1880's Country Inn in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Great black and white. I like the details and the road leading to the top right. It makes me want to explore the unknown, unseen.

On All paths lead to the center in the One Brown Leaf challenge (8 comments in total)

Congratulations for a fine picture. I like to add that the varied light and shade regions together contribute a lot to the picture too.

On Martina in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Notice how the shadow was taken out from the face. Neat.

Hi Ruth,
This derives from a picture of an access ramp taken at the outdoor bar of the Lime Restaurant at Parkroyal on Pickering in Singapore. I duplicated the picture, flipped it and stitched the two together. Then I flipped the image upside down to obtain this panorama. Finally I push the contrast. Glad you like it.

It looks like an unspoilt paradise indeed. Where can this be?

In reply to:

barb_s: I thought this was the most beautiful of all entries. i love the detail and think the wood you selected really made this pop. It's great kitchen art!

Thank you very much for appreciating it. Indeed the wood and the position of the pepper was carefully considered. The biggest challenge was how to use natural light from the window without creating blown-out highlight. I still have much to improve in this regard. I must re-examine Edward Weston's Pepper #30.

Wow, exhilarating cornucopia of mini-sized maple leaves.

This photo caught my attention at first glance. The tiny hair make the plant look exotic and alien, and the photo look like a drawing. May I also say the lens is exotic too. 90mm at f2! You must have pay a handsome sum for it :)

Lovely with great details, with an exquisite combination of symmetry, randomness, colors and patterns.

Congratulations, this is my favorite. Beautiful colors and shades. Just curious about the camera and lens combination. I think the 45mm 1.8 could be mistaken for the 50mm f2.

On One Chilli Pepper challenge (6 comments in total)

A challenging challenge indeed. Question, is black and white photo acceptable? Clarification, I am not clear about what "white and similar backgrounds" means. For example if the pepper is sitting on a rather plain looking wooden chopping board or a table cloth would that be acceptable?
