On No Lines challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

JerryShots: "A line is an identifiable path created by a point moving in space. It is one-dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. Lines often define the edges of a form. Lines can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, straight or curved, thick or thin. They lead your eye around the composition and can communicate information through their character and direction."

"Straight or curved..." So all these curved objects clearly contain lines...

Huh?
Why would I complain?
What would I complain about? It isn't my challenge ;)

Ah yes, it is true! But all so far are bounded by lines as straight and true as the day is long...Perhaps an edge treatment other than none - But I fully expect an image of either a checker board or rail road tracks receding into a plain horizon to be submitted and to take this challenge.

djsphynx: "Unfortunately this option is not available on older or lower spec models that come without a built-in Wi-Fi module"

Is the D810 lower spec'ed or just too old? /s

So if I make the same point you are making, I'm a Troll...
Okay Dokay - I'll reflect on that.

Did I mis-characterize your post?
I think if you re-read my post you will see there is no point of contention...So what point are you trying to make now?

@EricCul, pay away, LOL - Perhaps you'll find satisfaction with the next version...Or the one after that!
The fruit always seems to go bad so fast - Too bad you guys can't get one 'right enough' to actually want to stick with. My Galaxy seems fine, still :)

From Nikon's website
"...Instead of building it into the camera so as to not have widgets hanging off the camera or taking over the hot shoe, they'd rather we buy an adapter."

Huh?
Had they built it in, there would have been nothing 'hanging off' or in 'the hot shoe' - No loss of ports and nothing superficially 'breakable' or forgettable...
As it is, any solution hangs, adapts or plugs into a D800 and batteries may not be included ;)
Who is this 'system' good for? (Hint, not the consumer).

Or, they just want to charge 400-500 bucks for a "Pro" solution...Because they are ass holes. The feature comes for free on cheaper smaller cameras.

On -Made in America- (Full Colours Only) challenge (15 comments in total)
In reply to:

JerryShots: I'm surprised some posters can breath with out assistance.

Funny, if you ask a Mexican, Costa Rican, Honduran, Salvadorean, Ecuadorian or anyone from almost anywhere, where they are from none will EVER say "I'm an American" because they are all so eager to display National Pride - But say "I am an American" or in this case "American Made" and boy howdy will all those non-Americans jump up to tell you how American they are - LOL
When's the last time you saw an foriegn made consumer product on "The American Market" that didn't have it's Country of Origin proudly displayed? When have you seen a Mexican product labeled as "American Made" or "Made in America"? What you do see is "Henche en Mexico" or "Made in Costa Rica" or "Made in Honduras"...You ever seen a peach with a sticker on it that said "Product of Chile"? If you do, don't eat it because it will suck. If they could put a sticker on all that foriegn fruit that said "Grown in AMERICA" - Don't you think they would???
Eat that.

I'm thinking of reality mate - See your Canuck buddies comment?
That's reality. They want to be American's but know they are not.
Not sure about the other perspective - Wishful thinking? I'm stickin' with reality and common usage.

In reply to:

RuthC: JerryShots, If one of your entries wins the challenge, it will of course be because you produced a fantastic masterpiece, regardless of the beauty of the subject.
If your entry comes a dismal last, will it be because everyone of the voters looked only at the attractiveness of the young ladies, and didn't see beyond that? Get real, and stop pestering the host. It's his challenge, and he can set the rules as he sees fit. If you don't like his rules, then you don't enter the challenge.

RuthC...I really couldn't follow what you were saying and I'm pretty sure I said all that needed to be generally said already!

I have a pretty strong entry, both the image and the subject - But That can easily be said of a half a dozen entries. I won't cry too bad because I know the judges and I don't need validation for my wonderful photography - I was trying to be magnanimous and share it with you all!
Why do you give advice when none is asked?

Hell, even your dog is a product of it's parental coupling...
There is nothing you could NOT post in this challenge, a grape, a rose, even your dog's bowel product could be legitimately entered - I think this challenge was set up purposefully to be very open.
There is nothing on Earth that was not 'produced' by something else. Only God is said to be the un-caused cause, it is what makes him 'special'.

On Lady in the -Jet Black Hair- (Faceshot in Full Colours Only + Border) challenge (1 comment in total)

Mr. Newby,
I would suggest a little less vignette and for my taste, I'd prefer the old school composition where the top of the head isn't cut into.
But she looks to be Female - So you have already exceeded a few entries!
She also looks to be an adult, so you also were in the select group who can [read?] tell the difference between children and adults and (though it is a little tough to tell) she looks to be attractive by any standard so you ace'd that as well!!

Take out some of that vignette and re-enter it, you might not win but your shot won't be last. The fact that baby doesn't really have "Jet Black hair"...Shouldn't really matter.
