Great photo and a worthy winner n a category that was in danger of being overwhelmed by cuteness. Congratulations, Kerrie.

On Flowers that Last in the Artificial Flowers challenge (10 comments in total)

Super shot. Here in the tropics where orchids practically drip from the trees, people use artificial flowers for the same purpose -- they last on graves. We buried an old friend on Friday with a mix of natural and artificial flowers piled on his grave.

This shot has wonder composition and mood, though.

On South Wall in the Bridges challenge (8 comments in total)

Fantastic photograph -- using "fantastic" in its true form, as describing something that suggests "fantasy". Congratulations, RC. A great opportunity, obviously, and beautifully handled.

On Preikestolen / Pulpit Rock, Norway in the Living dangerously challenge (6 comments in total)

Yes, looking at the field, the Gecko (well named, they stick to the wall like glue) was a deserving winner. Gack, I don't even like looking at the picture!

Cheers, Geoff

On Life and death challenge (11 comments in total)

No contrast enhancement in converting to b&w? In b&w you nearly always need contrast enhancement to differentiate the colors represented because you lose the color contrast. With no contrast enhancement, pictures could end up very flat.

"no animals neither part of them, no human". So the skull and bones submitted will be disqualified?

On OVERFLOW in the Simplicity II challenge (5 comments in total)

lovely pic. Congratulations, Arcthie. You had to visualize it, you had to make it a reality, you had to compose it, and you had to deliver beautiful technical quality. A terrific winner all round.

On Zebras in Etosha NP in the Jigsaw Puzzle #11: Fauna challenge (8 comments in total)

Excellent winner! Congratulations, johneb on a great picture which is ideal for a puzzle that could fill a cold, rainy day or three. It has that excellent balance of complex and plain areas and being n interesting picture in itself that makes for a good puzzle.

Cheers, Geoff

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 article (495 comments in total)

The specifications look excellent, rather more than the doctor ordered! All I wanted was the new sensor in the G6. It almost looks like more camera than I can handle now! :)

I actually am not much taken with the squared off design. It actually looks a little like the old Topcon. The G6 might look a little shapeless but it has grown on me and except for a few touches, I would have been happy to see that shape continue. Great in the hand and rugged - my cameras lead a hard life.

Looking at the G7 capabilities, though, I am wondering how long I will stick with the GX7 I bought a month ago as a back-up for my G6. The GX7 might be a candidate for eBay so I can buy a G7 and use the G6 for back-up.

Pity they don't do n all-white version or even an all-silver one. I live and work in the tropics and a black camera absorbs heat more readily than I like.

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 article (495 comments in total)
In reply to:

User8606253983: Looking good, but outdated sensor. When will we get new sensors on m43. Been on 16 mp a while now. Would like my next om-d to have a few more pixels if possible.

"outdated sensor", "same old sensor" -- this is a superb sensor and, in fact, it is Panasonic's second 16 MPX sensor. Why should Panasonic go to Sony or anyone else when they have this top quality sensor of their own in hand? Coupled with Panasonic's excellent Venus software, all of us using this sensor get top quality pix out of it. Even the older Panny 16 MPX sensor in the G6 produces great images which help me make my living.

Sure, if Panasonic comes out with a better sensor in future, I will be happy to use it, but the only reason why they should move is if a new sensor offers a real advantage within the price/cost parameters. I hope that inane comments about "old" this or that do not gain traction.

On Feathers challenge (5 comments in total)

I've got a complaint! Some of these pix are too darned good -- they are better than mine! LOL.

Some very nice work here, fellow challengers.

Cheers, Geoff

On Hawaii-June 1969 & June 2014 in the Memories challenge (35 comments in total)

And the hair color has changed a bit! Heh, heh. Lovely pair of pictures, lovely story.

Recently, my older sister and her oldest son re-enacted an old photo they dug up of my sister bathing her boy as a baby. Oddly, there was quite a difference between 5 months and 50 years of age! (He did wear pants for the latter pic!)

On P-38 Lightning in the Classic fighters challenge (5 comments in total)

Excellent pic. A classic angle. The blurring in the propellers is just right.

Agreed, sam. an excellent topic which will lend itself to sub-division over time, with lots of more top entries, I am sure.

Congratulations, Ruth.

On -Urban Sunset/Sunrise- (Full Colours Only + Border) challenge (7 comments in total)

Actually, the sun rule is tricky. I have photographed a lot of dawns and sunsets and in my view, dawns are definitely handicapped by a "sun visible" rule since the moment the sun gets over the dawn horizon, much of the drama of the sky disappears instanter.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1864 comments in total)

This just looks insane to me. I was hoping for a 1" sensor, an extended zoom range, and something a little smaller. Instead I am offered something as bulky as the GM1 (yes, I have owned and used one) with a limited zoom range.

Oh -- and a built-in flash is a must have in these small cameras (I ridiculed Oly about the silly little accessory flash for the E-PL3 and this is no different).

As a marketer I see the two announcements of the LX100 and GM5 as ludicrous. They compete with each other!

And the LX100 is bigger and heavier than its "natural" competitors from other companies, notably Sony.

Anyway -- no Panny purchase for me of either of the two. I'll just carry the ever handy G6 with the 12-32 on walkabout. :)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)

Looks terrific. Sure, not m43 which I would prefer, but hey -- it has got a lot of IQ over competition like the Panny LX series.

Andf a pop-up EVF? Whoa! Maybe this will be the replacement for my recently deceased (through my maltreatment) GM1.

Cheers, geoff
