On Morning in the Tribute to: Ernst Haas challenge (1 comment in total)

A clever composition.
The early morning blue light contrasts superbly against the yellow trees and taxis. It would not be the same in warmer lighting, with lots of people milling about or a different viewpoint.

On Shannon Falls in the Human Vs Nature challenge (5 comments in total)

A worthy placing, well done! The power of the falls is awesome compared to the lone figure which is crucially placed in the shot.

I like this shot, it is simply done yet very effective against the black background.

On Dune shadows in the At The Beach challenge (2 comments in total)

Hi Doady,
I baulked at putting this one in as I thought it was rather abstract and would not appeal to most, but, I like it and thought I would share rather than try and submit a 'fun in the sand' type shot. I have learnt over the years that to be successful you must second guess the judges, certainly in club competitions. However, one judge has preferences and photographs are subjective, so go with your heart I say!
I like the fact that such a broad spectrum of viewers can vote, it is a little worrying that admin have picked up on cheaters but it is all just a bit of fun. Congrats to the winner, there are are lot of great images in this particular challenge.
Johnnie

On Wind Turbines in the Minimalism challenge (5 comments in total)

Hi Steve,
a night shot would be interesting, I will look into it. A flashlight would be great, though knowing my luck I would be arrested by the local plod as a potential terrorist!
I have had a break from dpr for a while due to divorce and illness, the challenges are a great way to get back into photography, clubs are ok but the members here are worldwide and of a very high standard. My photography should improve as a result.
Regards, Johnnie

On Wind Turbines in the Minimalism challenge (5 comments in total)

Thanks Steve,
I photographed these things literally hundreds of times and never really captured an image I liked. The juxtaposition with the landscape, sunsets are all ok but I thought about isolating the essential part of the machine and accentuating the movement. I nearly scrapped the image until I experimented with inverting, it was not intentional but I liked it! Sometimes accidents happen but I will take credit for it!
Regards, Johnnie
