Very nice picture, but failed to watermark the capture date, which was one of the rules.

On F-4 Phantom in the Cleared to land! challenge (1 comment in total)

This aircraft was cleared to land several minutes ago because the pilot is now taxiing in. A clue, the canopy is open.

On Taking Off from Runway 27L in the Magic runway lights challenge (1 comment in total)

Besides any runway or approach lights being on, the title of the picture should have read "Taking Off from Runway 09R".

On COINS. challenge (2 comments in total)

It is amazing that, except for two entries (30 and 80), all 118 others have one or more .5 grading. I thought .5 grading was reserved for entries that do not meet challenge rules. I believe everyone knows that some voters will do such poor act, hoping to bring down other contestants so their entry, or their friends', will shine better. Or these individuals may well be there just to stir the pot without having any entries in the challenge. It is time for DP Review to jump into the picture and do something about such blatant act.

In reply to:

dodfr: Snake at 21th never go to water and should have been withdrawed

Frog at 35th and 33th never go to water too they only live in trees

Lizard at 70th and 55th are also land only no water

I don't know how you can say frogs in pictures 33 and 35 never go to water because the pictures show them mostly submerged in water.

On Buland Darwaza in the Doors challenge (1 comment in total)

I see an archway, an entrance, but no door in sight.

On Landing at locarno in the Landing Airplanes challenge (1 comment in total)

Still on approach, about 4 miles back. That is not over or near the landing area.

On Landing in Pisa in the Landing Airplanes challenge (1 comment in total)

Considering the focal length, the aircraft is definitely on final approach and nowhere near the landing area yet.

On oops, landed off the runway!! in the Landing Airplanes challenge (1 comment in total)

Good capture of a mishap, but the transport aircraft is obviously beyond the landing area.

On Patrulla_Aguila in the Motion (no blur) challenge (1 comment in total)

Speed is definitely present, but there is no movement within the formation. The six wingmen are holding perfect position.

On Take-off in the Motion (no blur) challenge (1 comment in total)

The aircraft has speed. The only motion, which we cannot see, is inside the aircraft fuselage and engine pods.

On FiFi Take Off 7_24_11 in the Motion (no blur) challenge (1 comment in total)

Good capture; good panning technique; speed is definitely present; prop blur is acceptable, but the runway environment under the aircraft should have been sharp and not blurred. Too slow a shutter speed for the speed of the aircraft.

In reply to:

Knight20: Civilization from the past, but not nature.

I considered nature to be wildlife and not mankind. I guess I should have queried this issue before voting.

On Hagia Sofiaby night in the Scenery: The Nature history museum challenge (1 comment in total)

I fail to see nature from the past. A picture of Saint Peter's Basilica would receive the same comment and grading.
