On Father's family photos capture the delightful chaos of youth news story (159 comments in total)

The inmediacy of everyday life, the story telling of a simple detail in a moment are priceless here. Thank you for sharing. Love # 13.

On Sea to Shining Sea : Connecticut challenge (2 comments in total)

I am curios to know how the host will apply its own rules in this type of challenge theme which had proven to be very loose theme in the past or at least loose in the way it has been proposed. It becomes a kind of 'everything goes' challenge. It borders boredom, It is not a surprise to see the low rate of participation.

On Skin (MACRO) challenge (3 comments in total)

Sorry, but the description of skin in this challenge is too broad and vague to say the least.

On Now I understand in the Song: Vincent (Starry Starry Night) challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

JerryShots: This is a mural of "The Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh painted on a wall in Venice, CA...Fitting as the song deals with artistic representations of the human condition, which is often quite horrid - No less true even if the artists portrays it all in a pleasant light.

Notice there are no stars and no night in my shot?
Makes you wonder...

Jerry,
Could it be you do not like stars?

On Shooting Starry Night in the Song: Vincent (Starry Starry Night) challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

JerryShots: This is an absurd entry for this challenge - It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the theme.
I would say it is excessively LAME in this context and should be withdrawn.

Agree.
Jerry, you should apologize to many entrants here. I think the problem is....do you not like stsrs? ;)

Point of interest is in the shadows. Eyes of any subject should had a spark of light reflected (even if microscopic) or else would look as if lifeless. Mind you, here could work at an advantage giving a feeling of sad mood lived by the subject. Exposure compensation may had balanced the source of strong light from upper left corner with the shadows casted on the mid right side of subject.

On Aleka n Wall in the Discussion Challenge III 'People or Animals' Portraits challenge (12 comments in total)

Agree, busy background and light casts too many hard shadows on the face. Try getting closer to the subject

On Star Cluster in Abyssius in the Song: Vincent (Starry Starry Night) challenge (2 comments in total)

Jarry,
I read the lyrics, did not think it was a challenge about stars. This is my view about the human condition, very optimistic, it transcends its darkness....where we come from, what we are made of and where we go, of the same elements and its chaos as a star cluster nursery. In this challenge, its just a matter of each participant's perception.
