Steve Throndson: Great photo! It was my favorite in the challenge. It really gives a sense of the enormous size of the turbines.

Thanks Steve, it was shot from the ground at quite some distance.

All the very best,
Bart

l_objectif: Congrats, Bart!... How come you are suddenly winning so many challenges?... I hope you are not cheating! LOL... LOL
Bravo, my friend; a superb shot!

Hi there Louis,
actually it's quite worrying: most of the shots were taken before they removed something out of my head ...
Thank you all the very best,
Bart

In reply to:

candleJack: How is the original picture, the one without the added blur?

Added blur ? Are you mad ?
There is only 2 or perhaps 3 mm DOF !

All the best.

Steve Throndson: Beautiful wood - I've never seen anything quite like it.

Thanks Steve,
but I still get tears in my eyes when I remember the day I broke my fishing rod.
Kind regards,
Bart

In reply to:

also el: wow! nice shot, well thought out. i've had a split cane rod for many years and it was very old when handed down to me. i knew the process and tried to explain it to friends and no one could believe that even at the narrow end, less than 5mm thick, it could have six segments fitted perfectly together. i'll have to bookmark your photo so i can explain it more easily next time.
well deserved finish!

Hi there,
The top end could be as thin as 3 mm, it's really amazing and you have to admire the craftsmanship of a good split cane rod.
Thanks and all the best,
Bart

MarshallG: A good camera is most surely a work of art. It's beauty is sublime; a mixture of texture we can feel and hold in our hands, a sculpture of kinetic mechanical-optical-electronic engineering merged into a thing of beauty which lets us create things of beauty. We hold these artworks in our hands, and they talk to us; through their design they help us capture light and form into art. They project imagery into our eyes for our creative inner selves to process; how will this appear on paper, how will this appear on-screen?

Twenty years after Chinese manufacturing gutted Japanese manufacturing, the SLR remains quintessentially Japanese; and origami-like folding of glass, metal, and silicon meshing together in precision-milled helicoils, springs and gears, producing those satisfying clicks and whirs of mechanical perfection.

Is a camera art? Thank heavens, yes! Thank the heavens, and Japan, and Canon, Nikon and Olympus. How empty and I satisfying our lives would be if it were any other way.

Canon, Nikon, Olympus ? Really ? I prefer the Leica way :)
That said, I'm pretty happy too with my OMD and K5.
Kind regards,
Bart

Whatever the artistry here, I know I do love my Leicas ... :P

In reply to:

Photo Sonia: I captured the same dog, just two weeks before; unfortunately he was just laying down on his pillow - how wonderful to live in Bruge and get to watch life pass by from the comfort of a window over the canal. Great work!

Yep, it's true !

In reply to:

pen araneae: Congratulations. Very nice composition. The subdued mood perfectly fits the sleeping dog on the window. This is a fine example of a picture where the main subject dominates the picture without being dominant in size.

Thank you ! Probably a bit of luck, I might have liked a longer lens at the time. But the picture as a whole including the window and foliage works best.
