On Just Fine for Wine in the Goblets challenge (2 comments in total)

What a great idea and well executed. Just a shame your finger prints are on the right hand glass. What is the mesh? Chicken wire? Thanks, Neil.

So the earlier 'just a number' Coolpixes aren't invited to the party? I have one of those. Neil.

On Pollinator in action in the Harmony of Colours in Nature challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frenchfx: I have to ask, what gear did you use to capture this, it's an amazing shot, so sharp. Very nice.

Hello Frenchfx,
I'm glad you like my entry in the 'Harmony of Colours in Nature' challenge. I used my trusty old Fujifilm S100fs (my only camera) and a Raynox DCR-150 clipped onto the end of it.

The Hoverfly was originally hanging upside down but I flipped the photo as it looked more natural this way .

All the best,

Neil.

On FEAR ** READ THE RULES ** challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim Salvas: Next challenge: "Control Freaks."

Only 100 ISO, SOOC photos of the host allowed. No cropping.

The rules in your 'challenge' Jim sound the same as if I was using my old slide film again, so I'm up for that. These youngsters don't realise how easy they have it with all this cropping, post processing and changing of ISO at will we have now! ;-) .

Neil.

On Frankenfly! in the fankenlens challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

cjf2: Wow that got you close!

I could have got twice as close as I had to zoom back to just under 200mm to get the head in! I'm really looking forward to future attempts but it's just too hot in my attic at the mo. It was 33C up there today!

On Tomato closeup in the fankenlens challenge (1 comment in total)

I'm glad you said what it is as I would have guessed an 'alien autopsy'! Interesting lighting.

On Sugar and Salt in the fankenlens challenge (1 comment in total)

Always fascinating to see things like this up so close. Lovely and sharp where in focus though you seem to have some focus banding problems most noticeably on the right of the central square. Is it possible for you to make your focus steps any smaller? I know this will mean twice or three times as many photos to stack, but I think the result would be worth it.

On Fly in the fankenlens challenge (1 comment in total)

Out of interest, what is a 'CD-ROM lens'? I've never heard of one of those before. Thanks, Neil.

On From immature bud to mature flower. in the As Time Goes By (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Thank you very much Ruth for your lovely comment :-) . I was lucky with the background as it was just bark chips used to cover the earth in our garden to stop weeds growing.

On Home Recording Studio. challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

richiebee: No, don't cancel... I'm just finishing up a week of recording. I've taken some pics, just not great ones yet. Problem with this challenge is its not really possible to take a picture of your artists recording. You have to fake it, or shoot through a closed window. The shutter sound is kind of frowned upon on recordings. :)

Richiebee, I have reported this time problem to DPR several weeks ago and nothing has been done. Have a look at my thread on the feedback forum :-

Nicely done, though shouldn't this have been entered in the 'P' challenge for 'Post Processing'? ;-)
