Fantastic imagination; is that the essence of great images? Certainly is so here. Really enjoyed them all, especially the puppy in the backpack. Thanks for posting.

Sensational images - outstanding images. I'd be over the moon to have taken any of them. I have to agree with DaveE1, why cannot people praise such outstanding work rather than finding spurious negativity; perhaps it has more to do with jealousy and their inability to take such wonderful images.

Well done Elena, let's see some more!

On D4D_5239b in the WILD ANIMALS/BIRDS & THEIR REFLECTIONS challenge (28 comments in total)

Hi, stunning. Extraordinary, in that subject positioning, viewing angle, light and stillness have all come together at the right moment in time to create a truly superb and memorable image. Many congratulations, well deserved.

Great capture; unusual image, interesting story and a challenging place to get too I am sure. Thanks for posting and congrats on winning (regarding the post by mirrorless crusader: all I can say is that such sentiments seldom advance life, fun, interest or friendship).

In reply to:

(unknown member): Why no mention of Capture NX2?

Hi, I agree as a Nikon user for mainly landscapes I use NX View and Capture NX2. For my needs it is more than enough, but I do look to the software being updated by Nikon and continually developed as it was a large reason why I selected Nikon as my tool of choice.

Finally, as I said when this announcement was made, in this austere era many people are trying to reduce monthly outgoings not increase them and I for one would not adopt a software package in any domain that was subscription based.

I was on the cusp of buying PS; not now. Nor will I add to my monthly outgoings, which I have spent the last year reducing to the irreducible minimum. No, a monthly sub is not how I wish to pay for my photography.
