On 09252014_29 rsz photo in also el's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

older om 50mm 1.4 on e620

tightening the aperture to 5.6 or 4 gets rid of halation on the subject and still isolates it from the other objects three inches nearer and three inches further.

using om 50mm 1.4. aprox 2 feet from camera.

besides very narrow dof, at 1.4 halation becomes almost unacceptable ( unless you could find a subject that benefits from the effect ).

On Weather Channel announces photo contest winners article (23 comments in total)

congrats to jason w. (number nine). i met jason more than once while shooting storms and lightning in the daytona area. if there was an active storm around, he would be out there (and me too sometimes).

On Make Way For Ambulance! in the Old&Forgotten Toys challenge (3 comments in total)

this brought back some memories. i was unstoppable with a screwdriver and pliers when i was young. had to find out how anything worked. a lot of these had small friction motors. what i found fascinating was (on the few i opened up) the tin was actually recycled from commercial food or soup cans. tin cans at that time were mostly printed (like beer cans today) and didn't have paper labels so you might see campbells tomato soup or something similar printed in the inside of the car.
some great travel shots in your gallery. nice work.

well after first go through, cuteness factor and nostalgia are dominating my preferences. and then within those, presentation will have to win out.

well done on your entry!! there should be no sour grapes about this challenge as the number of voters actually was greater than the number of entries. your entry was clearly well received by all who participated. and thanks to barb for the great challenge.

On Happy Hour in the Food Photography challenge (6 comments in total)

great idyllic tropical scene!! the food may not be a big enough element of the photo to fit the 'mouth watering' mentioned in the challenge description. still a very appealing, well taken photo.

great shot!! on its own it isn't going to "make my mouth water" but will still garner high ranking from me for technical merit.

i like the arrangement, colors, dof sufficient to keep everything sharp.

On DPReview on CreativeLIVE article (142 comments in total)

only caught about 15 minutes but well impressed by the effort. so much info to cover in little time. i agree with segaman that this type of live or recorded video forum would be a great way to review specific cameras, lenses, and gear. hands on live and fielding questions from members online.
(and who was that cute mute girl in the middle?)

On Natural Rock Formations challenge (14 comments in total)

how about excluding antelope canyon and the wave. they are incredible places to photograph but seem to get too much attention here. or at the least, ask that the participants not post a shot that has been used before in other challenges.

thanks for taking a look and commenting.
this came up fairly quickly and had just blocked the sunlight a few minutes earlier. a few moments later and they were all hurrying to get off the beach.

not really seeing 'dangerous or scary storm' but still a great, unique capture of that area.

great job photoshopping us back in time. rainbow and lightning bolt may be a bit too fanciful.
slightly reminiscent of el greco's view of toledo.
