Leave the personal politics out of the discussion

On Bugatti Grill in the Old Grills challenge (1 comment in total)

That sure looks more like a Bugatti kit car than the real thing.

On Using these Letters Only - II challenge (10 comments in total)

How about showing us a photograph that explains the rather puzzling rules?

That's such BS answer. You're supposed to be managing this challenge. Give us some guidance ConanFuji.

Still using the same unnecessarily complex and meaningless rules that add absolutely nothing to quality of the entries. Still the lowest participation rate of any of the challenge hosts.

On DPReview Gear of the Year: Canon Rebel SL1 / EOS 100D article (271 comments in total)

I like the SL1 better than either the Fujfilm X-100 or the Sony NEX-7 that I had previously. It is much easier to use to photograph my fast moving grand children as it focuses much faster than either the X-100 or the NEX 7. I use the 40mm, f2.8 a lot of the time as it very sharp and always spot on with the focus. The one thing I wish it had is a swing-out rear screen.

On TIME's top photos of the year article (153 comments in total)

Rags like Time and Newsweek have made themselves irrelevant. Their awards for Person of the Year and for best photo are meaningless and an insult to the people who did make a difference.

Thanks for the tip. I also highly recommend the movie "Rush" which truly captures the atmosphere of 1970's Grans Prix.

On g i u l i e t t a in the Race Cars in Black & White or Sepia challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice shot of an Alfa Giulietta Sprint, BUT the rules state that it must be a photo of a competing vehicle. This one is obviously sitting without a driver.

On Old's Cool in the Race Cars in Black & White or Sepia challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice shot of an old Lotus, BUT the rules state that it must be a photo of a competing vehicle. This one is obviously sitting in an enclosed space

On Sunset - Heavily post-processed V challenge (2 comments in total)

Something smells very fishy about this challenge. The winning photo had 135 views and a score of 3.5. The rest of the entries had fewer than 30 views each and average scores that were no higher than 3.2. Normally the entries are much closer than this. Just sayin'.

On Time at Sea in the Photographer audition: Wristwatch challenge (13 comments in total)

Should there be a separate category for professional photographers so that there is a level playing field, or at least it should be identified as a photo taken by a professional which has been published for commercial purposes Also, isn't the photo the property of the client, not the property of the photographer? Therefore it is no longer the right of the photographer to use it as he sees fit?

On Cartier Tank Francaise in the Photographer audition: Wristwatch challenge (5 comments in total)

I restore Alfas as a hobby. Did a 1967 Duetto and sold it about 6 months ago. Would love to do a Guilia Super.

I'm a long time Alfa guy. Currently have a Giulietta spider and a GTV 1750.

AND, SCREAMING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS IS RUDE AND IGNORANT. TELL US WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE SUBMITTED, YOU HAVEN'T SAID A WORD ABOUT THE SUBJECT OF THE CHALLENGE.

On Full-Frame Diagonal Fisheyes (Brand Must Match Body) challenge (13 comments in total)

This was a self defeating challenge. Inevitably, one of the lowest participation rate I have seen (although there was one not long ago that had zero submissions) and the photos are OK, but nothing to make one run out and buy a fisheye lens. Can't help but think that there would have been more submissions, and the quality would have been much better if the rules allowed photos taken before the challenge announcement date.

On Formula 1 challenge (3 comments in total)

Great photos in this challenge, but it's interesting that none of the photos seemed to have shot by the pros who have access to the track. Perhaps because their photos are owned by someone else.

However, no photo or video can capture the sheer noise and velocity of an F1 race. These guys really do risk it all at every race. I have been photographing F1 racing since 1971 and it just gets better every year. In my next life, I will be an F1 photographer.
