On Red Rock Country: The Magnificent Five challenge (6 comments in total)

Great challenge… I spend last summer in that area, and can't wait to see all the entries here because the area was breathtaking, plus I took a wrong turn and missed Bryce.

In reply to:

christian jacob: I think you should add "man made" or organic or similar to your rules. Every pebble or sand corn is far older than a hundred years.

Hmmm…. too late to append the rules but I agree. It's not a nature challenge. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you for the fun compliments! I did this a while ago playing with perspective and couldn't resist this challenge.

In reply to:

CalBoy87: My apology to all who commented on my previous post: Apathy. As I agreed with most opinions regarding soft eyes, it is not something I could improve, so I came up with different shot. Thank you all for your effort and sorry for changing the shot.

I think changing the shot is the right thing to do if there's flaws you can't work around.

On Running gemsboks in the Animals with Horns challenge (4 comments in total)

I feel like this is what inspired cave paintings. Love he framing - you caught the essence of it all with this small view of the herd. Great entry !

edit: I didn't read the 1st comment - but looks like I am not the only one getting that feeling from this image.

I like it with the mom in the background and I think the hair-do goes well with the expression.

On Discussion Challenge III 'People or Animals' Portraits challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

CalBoy87: Just a small favor to ask. Can we keep the size to 1600 mp? Some of the wonderful shots here, are posted at full resolution, which make it really hard to see them in full size. Thank you.

I can't adjust the rules after the challenge opened. IT's a good request though. If the entrants read here, they can comply on that with their re-submissions.

In reply to:

Joe Pineapples: Someone was really handing out the 0.5s. Sandbagging in a "Discussion" challenge? Possibly a new low for dpreview...

I just noticed this comment. Yes someone came up with 17 .5's and 8 1's. to start their voting.

Your images are always so complicated to look at, and here's a simple one - still just as interesting too!

On Fish oil capsules in the Colorful Shadows challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

scooper1: Nothing complicated about this one. I simply arranged the amber-coloured capsules on a pale blue kitchen bench top -- camera vertically above. Illumination was bright sunlight falling at a low angle from a window at the top of the scene. I made several different arrangements but this symmetrical one was by far the most pleasing to me. Glad you liked it.

Thank you.

I thought this was pretty artsy in what you managed to do with fish oil and lighting.
