On photo Kirkjufell Mountain - Iceland in the HDR challenge (4 comments in total)

Agreed Kevin -- should have won, I thought. I notice a number of low votes which I simply cannot see this picture meriting. Odd.
On the other hand, the winner had 710 views vs. 198 for this pic. I do like the winner -- but I think this pic is stronger.
Maybe the winner gets home partly on the fact of being more "HDR" than this one.
There is one other factor -- people prefer to deal with the familiar. This subject is very unfamiliar for most; bizarre geological features. (I live in a land of volcanoes too, but no ice and snow! LOL!)

On photo Devon in the The Green Green Grass of Home. challenge (9 comments in total)

Lovely picture, Mond. Mind you, this whole challenge was biased towards England (or possibly Ireland) -- NOBODY gets grass as green as you! LOL.

Beautiful tones, beautiful light, and a very pleasant composition. One for the wall, I imagine.

Congratulations -- a really well deserved win.

Cheers, Geoff

rwol1970: I'm still waiting for a real, affordable retro camera:

- Only manual operation
- Simple light meter
- No monitor (wait until you're home; if you know what you're doing you don;t need a monitor) so you have full attention for real photography

Grow up, turvyT. just get a camera and use it set to the limitations you are interested in setting for yourself. What you are saying is that you need a special camera because if you have moreo ptions available, you won't be able to control yourself and will use them.

Did you have to ask your mommy to hide your pacifier for you? Come on, get mature!

In reply to:

goshigoo: Because many people think f/4 is f/4 regardless of format
They do not understand m43 only cover 1/4 of 135FF

Panasonic sells fewer lenses then canikon
The R&D cost accounts for the expensive price of m43's lenses

It is more worth to buy canikon super tele lenses then m43's
And it won't be portable anyway and you will have to take a tripod/monopod when using super tele lenses, which adds another weight

M43 is makes more sense in wide / normal zoom range

Pity you don’t understand what "f stop" means goshigoo. Or are you a canikon salesman deliverately using misinformation as you are desperately chasing commissions?

Boss of Sony: Canon 100-400L IS or 400 f5.6L on APS-C would offer same focal length, similar performance for half the price.

Excellent self appointed Nobody of Sony. So go and guy a Canon 100-400L for your APS-C and enjoy it. Nobody is holding you back.

Does the restriction to Canikon mean that these two makes of cameras can't hack the competition with other makes? Really, there can be no other inference drawn from this limitation.

Excellent xrxss, congratulations. Terrific action catch. Did you use burst to get that fraction of a moment?

As a photo, drippy, your spider portrait is really outstanding; from a personal point of view, I never want to meet one of those spiders! Gack!

That's a clever sculpture, isn't it, with the relative sizes of the people and the car adjusted. Good one.

Shifter, it's a wood louse, so unless you head is made of wood…

Percy, that photo is simply superb -- and to take off second as well, crikey, I'm just happy to be in the top 10 of anything! LOL. Congratulations.

On photo Porter At Cambodia/Thailand Cross Border in the Volume challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

webrunner5: Wow, hard way to make a living!

Spot on, Lim. So much that is "exotic" translates to someone doing it hard one way or another. Mind you, the fact is that we need to be careful not to be temporally myopic. When I was a lad in Australia, porters and farmers and laborers heaved 180 pound (82kg) bags of wheat around all day. In the 1950s, the bag weight was reduced to 50kg, and then to 40kg. A lot of old laborers had very bad backs -- and they never made much money either.

Terrific picture, though. It really tells the story.

ybn: the distinction <or lack thereof> between 'mist' and 'haze' is somewhat hazy...!

Tricky definitional stuff, but some excellent pictures.

On challenge Propeller driven Planes (5 comments in total)

Much as I love the average Spitfire (I was brought up ln heroic Spit stories), I was disappointed with the poor showing of the DC3 which were a mainstay of air transport here in New Guinea when I first arrived in the 1960s. I thought the DC3 pic entered was very good.

In New Guinea, we thought the world was ending when the good old (very old!) DC3s were phased out and replaced by Fokker Friendships. Turboprops! With high wings! Gak!

On challenge Lighting up a vehicle (Light Painting) (2 comments in total)

Light painting is when you have a dark scene and you take a light in and "paint" over our subject. Not a flash light -- although that could be a variation.

Hen3ry: Nice pic! I would have cut the shadow under the bottom lip a little in PP though (if only I could have taken a pic like this in the first place!).

I wonder, though, is it supposed to be a portrait or is the model supposed to be modelling something? If modelling something, what?

Jeez! I don't even know what butterfly lighting is! LOL. As I said, nice pic. And the E-PL7 was right up to the job too. Nice piece of kit.

Ha ha -- looks like TX Photo Doc and I (54th and 53rd respectively), who both attempted jokes on the theme, didn't resonate with the audience which went the trad meat market approach. Oh well. TX -- take heart; Playboy's circulation was down nearly 25% this year and Field and Stream is now running with about 50% more circulation than it.

Our day will come! LOL!
