On Fujifilm X-Pro1 preview (756 comments in total)

Two factors made me pause

a) Price, price, price
b) Depth of field is the same as APS-C, but not FF

Hmmmm....

On Colored Beauty in the One flower multiple colors challenge (3 comments in total)

Of all the shots in this challenge, I love the soft colors and composition of this shot most. It does not have the tiresome symmetrical smack-in-the-center composition featured in most other entries. Great shot!

Solarcoaster: Fish and water drop look photoshopped. So much for real photography.

KimTeo: Brilliant. I never caught this. You are right, it is not possible for water droplets to be this large based on viscosity of fresh/salt water.

On gull over still lake water in the Your Best Bird Shot challenge (34 comments in total)

The small amount of light that filters through the bird's feathers is AMAZING. A well deserved win.

The reflection is a little too bright. It's still beautiful though

On bullseye in the Challenge of Challenges 2011 challenge (15 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lext123: This is not a picture, but a compound graphic design. There is nothing wrong with that of course, but don’t try give the viewer the impression that this was a real shot. The provided photographic settings: exposure time: 25200 seconds / f3.4 / ISO 800 would have resulted in TOTALLY white overexposed picture.
Another doubtful thing is the use of a Fisheye lens. This lens would give us a curvy, distorted image and sees 180 degrees from corner to corner diagonally. The submitted picture does not show this characteristics by far.
Furthermore, why do we see the harbor lights reflecting from the water, but the reflection of the sky is completely missing? And finally, the color diversity of the starts is far overdone.
Nice artist impression? Yes! Nice picture? Not a picture at all! But becoming 5th in the Challenge of Challenges 2011 is something that should have been prevented in combination with the misleading accompanying photographic settings.

You are right the picture does not reflect reality (pun unintended) . But come to think about it, ALL star trails photos are NOT real because one can only observe star trails with long exposures. This picture is a manual blend of sunset and the usual stacked star trail shots. That is why you do not see reflection of the stars in the sky. If the photographer did not blend his sunset shot with the star trails, the foreground and the sky colors would not show up.

On Mesa Arch Sunrise in the Challenge of Challenges 2011 challenge (8 comments in total)

This shot must have been taken more than a million times, to the extent that I did not even bother to keep my own version. However, this rendition is probably the best of what I've seen so far. It is also the most eye-catching of all the submissions in this Challenge of Challenge contest.

On Castle in the Framed and chat (edited) challenge (19 comments in total)

Partly agree with DimLS. This has to be the nicest of all the submissions. However, the HDR effect went a little too far for the center. The grass and trees in the center appear a little too unnatural.
