Is that like Scotch on the rocks?
Interesting photo. I must have seen hundreds of photos of the top, but none from within the canyon.
I loved the photo - but also the title and caption :-)
Since this challenge is now full, why not DQ the first entry in the challenge, which breaks the rules of the challenge in having previously been entered in a challenge: http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=802865&View=Results&Rows=4It would make space for one more photo that doesn't break the rules.
Objectiveman: Daunting task voting for 500 entries.
"just do the 50 nicest, that will work too."Depending on the details of the Bayesian algorithm, that won't work. Any photo left without votes will get the average vote on those that were voted on. Any photo with just a few votes will get a score that is heavily weighted by the average. As a result, the poor photos may end up scoring higher than the lower parts of the favoured photos.
This is a pretty amazing subject-and-shadow photo. I think I would have been tempted to replace the brown roof with an extension upwards of the wall, and then crop so that the main subject was the shadow. Nice pic.
Congratulations! This is a "I wish I'd taken that" photo :-)
Isn't that B for bloodshot? :-)
Difficult voting - too many great pictures here :-)
Shame it's not possible to see if it's yellow- or red-billed oxpecker :-)
Gosh, they're thin :-(
Five Piece: Wow.
Congratulations! Beautiful photo :-)
Greg Burke: I would have cropped the bottom a bit to eliminate the distracting white part..
Me too - about a fifth off the bottom and right. Or filled the blown part with general skin colour.
I would have straightened and cropped a quarter on the left and bottom.
Lovely shot :-)
FYI this is some kind of egret (heron family), not some kind of crane. Nice pic :-)
Extraordinary photo of an extraordinary region ... Thanks for posting.
