In reply to:

Bren Dyer: Accepted. I have done similar myself

Apology gratefully accepted. Sorry if the thoughts in my original post were a little ambiguous. I'm glad we can still be 'friends' :-) .

See you around, Neil.

If I ever do become a DPReview host Buzz, which I have contemplated from time to time, then you will be most welcome to enter any or all of my challenges as I hope I am still welcome to enter any that you set. It seems a shame that a miss read message should possibly spoil two peoples enjoyment.

All the best, Neil.

Buzz Lightyear - You seem to be seeing 'an attitude' where only confusion and sadness existed. I was looking forward to entering the challenge until Bren let one person break his main stated rule for the challenge, namely "shutter speed must be 1/4000 or faster" .
Freezing objects with a very fast shutter in bright light is a very different type of challenge to using an ultra fast flash speed in a near or totally dark room with multi second exposures. Everything in the challenge description indicated that it was the former which is why I was so confused when Bren allowed a photo taken with a shutter speed at least 8000 times longer than specified in the challenge title.

If I was confused by this dramatic and highly unexpected change in the rules part way through the challenge then I'm sure others were / would be too. This confusing would no doubt have carried on to the voting phase which is why I decided reluctantly not to enter my photo into the challenge.

I was just about to complain about this photo but now see that you have accepted it with a 2 second exposure! I'm confused? You have gone against your own main rule. If I am confused, others will be too so I won't be entering now :-(

In reply to:

Simon Dass: Bro... what the heck is this... ? LOL

Objective = Fail

Humour = Pass

This is my valid entry. You made no mention of what type of milky way photos you wanted. I'm afraid such astronomical marvels are not possible where I live so I entered what I could whilst still being on theme and within the rules.

As for humour...I did make you "LOL" ;-) .

The result was sadly the one I expected but it was nice to see some people appreciated my efforts. I'm delighted with my 5x5 points :-) .

Thank you all. Neil.

vbuhay: Would roller coaster qualify?

They don't have a 'motor' so I don't think they should.

On challenge Macro - Something Frosted or Frozen (2 comments in total)

In the link you posted Wikipedia concluded -

"In the digital age, a "true" macro photograph can be more practically defined as a photograph with a vertical subject height of 24 mm or less"

Sounds good to me :-) .

On challenge Splash! Frozen in time. (4 comments in total)

I was wondering if a digital copy from a slide or negative taken with an SLR would be allowed to enter? I have a photo I took some time ago that would fit nicely into your challenge :-) .

Thanks, Neil.

sparkey2: Holy smuck, this is really good... Congrats for your win on a super image.
Now I will have to experiment to see if I can emulate it.

Thanks very much :-).

Good luck with emulating it. If you get stuck, drop me a line and I'll show you my setup.

Does a 'bridge' camera count as a similar camera to a DSLR for the purpose of this challenge?

Thanks, Neil.

In reply to:

NPW UK: 2059 seems to have been a popular year to photograph lizards!

Lets hope not as that date would be somewhat against the rules of the challenge :-/ . Saying that 2059 doesn't seem quite appropriate either.
