In 02 they should have added: HDR. Or in its own category maybe.

On Sea flower in the Wild About Wildflowers challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, sveper, on coming third with your beautiful and very unusual entry. Well-deserved! Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth and CG33, much appreciated! Sorry I didn´t do any deeper research in what flower it was. I have only seen it on a very limited spot, just 50m, or so, from the (rocky) coast line, on the Island of Mallorca. Today I got deeper in to searching and found out it is a Caper bush: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capparis
I also was a little reluctant to enter the image since the focus wasn´t spot on on the Filaments. Anyway, have uploaded two more photos of the Caper bush in my gallery.
Cheers!

On The Color Blue - but No Sky challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

barb_s: wow, that was fast. I will certainly add another challenge and I've set it up with 5 for the entry limit, and then 12 hours into the challenge, I will change it to 50.

This will announce Nov 8th:

Repeat challenge Blue: Fish, flowers, eyes, jewels, jeans, birds, water, etc… but do not enter a nature photo that uses the sky as the blue element. The sky can be in the photo, but something else must be the point of interest and it should be blue.

The 1st challenge filled up in just a few hours. This one will open up with 5 as the limit for entries, and 12 hours after it has opened, I will set the limit to 50 to allow the other 1/2 of the planet a chance to enter.

-barb

Good show. I think any color challange will fill up pretty soon. Cheers.

On Beech UC-43 Traveller in the Over saturated challenge (3 comments in total)

Thanks for your comment Steve. Took the photo at Duxford and there were actually two Beech on display. The other was a blue/yellow D17 Staggerwing N295BS. Unfortunatly I did not get the "best" photo of that one. Later it did an unfortunate nose ower when taking off so it was kind of "out of display" rest of the show.

Is a dingy with oars considered as a rowboat?

On Hidden HDR - specific rules in this challenge. challenge (5 comments in total)

Some very nice photos in this challange. Really like the No 1, and also No 6 is in my taste. What I like to see, is an explanation from the person, or those of you who voted low on each and every photo. I just want to understand your way of thinking. I think it should be stated in the rules that anyone who votes a 0.5 should also be obliged to write an explanation.

On Spitfire MkVB in the Landing Airplanes challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

sveper: Thanks all who voted on my photo, much appreciated!
Only one question: I wonder what it was that induced the low votes 1.0-2.0?

FYO, yes the Spit is actually landing. Shutter speed: 1/100 sec which means if it had been on take off, a clear propwash had been noticable, ie. full throttle. On landing a Spit almost cut the throttle: no prop wash. Second: a Spitfire normally have two flaps settings, fully up as on take off, and fully down, as on landing. On the photo they are fully down.

Cheers

Thanks for your input Raptor. I have not calibrated my Eizo FlexScan 22" monitor since I boght it almost 4 years ago. Maby it is time now. I may have noticed that others photos looks a bit dark.

Cheers
