On Blue Angel over the Golden Gate Bridge in the Lucky Shot challenge (1 comment in total)

Planes passed by in front, above and behind me. Usually can't tell where until a second or two because the toll plaza and trees blocked their approach. Picked the bridge as the background and got "lucky" one passed very close. It was sweet to see one so close to the bridge. Haven't happened to me since 2007

On "Brain", Ayers Rock in the Odd Places in Nature challenge (1 comment in total)

I am probably wrong but I believe this may be a section of the rock is considered as sacred and should not be photographed. I am not an Australian and have not been there for a long time.

In reply to:

Windancer: I really don't care at the outcome of this challenge, so I really don't want this perceived as "sour grapes" but these are a couple a couple of the rules that were given and I took that into account when I did my voting. If we were to follow these "rules" at least half of these images don't meet the requirements.

•Must include a kayak (whole or part; sit on or sit in). So sorry no canoes, saiboats, etc.
•Photo must be taken from someone on a kayak (hint: photo includes the bow or stern of the shooter's kayak, or the foreground is occupied primarily by water).

You are right. No excuses for not DQ those pics.

On It's not clear... in the Photos from a kayak challenge (4 comments in total)

Congrats. Great composition. This shot is an excellent example of why it is worth the risk of bringing a camera on a kayak.

Col K10d: Hey, thanks for this challenge. I've just noticed that the UK carousels go round clockwise and practically the rest of the world are anti-clockwise!

Interesting fact about the British carousels (I see that in your entry). Thanks for taking an interest in the challenge. Hope to see more of your pics soon.

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: A thing which swings you around in the air in a chair is not a carousel.

I do agree. I apologize that some people have another understanding of what a carousel is. So by Thrusday (prior to voting), I will have to remove the swing entries to allow for 1 more day of submission by those who inadvertently had a swing entry.
