I think you are in the wrong challenge, mate.

Feel sorry for these girls. Must be degrading to work like that.

On Long Beach in the Formula 1 challenge (2 comments in total)

This is not a Formula 1 car or event. Sure looks like an Indy Car race that was held in 2009.

The number of entries showing the Bahrain or Abu Dhabi races is amazing. Don't the Europeans take any photos at their races?

WOW! Great shot of an airplane flying over an empty race track. How did you manage to stop the motion so well?

On 1968 Chevy Camaro in the Cars... challenge (4 comments in total)

This photo is the best one in the challenge - by a mile. It does a great job of portraying motion without resorting to Photoshop tricks. The 1st and 2nd place winners are boring snapshots compared to this one

Great photo, but why is the shadow as sharp as a tack when the rest of the image is blurred?

On Made in England in the Cars... challenge (1 comment in total)

If this car is moving, as per the rules, the photograher must have been run over.

On Volvo in the Cars... challenge (1 comment in total)

The car must be driving itself, there's nobody inside.

I have been using Windows 8 Beta on a Samsung Series 7 tablet for almost one year, and it is very, very good. Windows 8 is fast, even with Photoshop CS5, and has proven to be reliable without a single freeze up or crash in a year of hard use. Machine start up from the "off" position is on the order of 20 seconds, CS5 opens in 8 seconds. File transfers to and from external drives is also very fast. Battery life while working with files in CS5 has been around 2.5 - 3.0 hours. Windows 8 has been totally compatible with all other MS and Adobe software. I'm not an IT guy at all, just a hard working photographer, but the tablet and Windows 8 combination has worked out extremely well for me.

Been using Windows 8 Beta on a Samsung Series 7 tablet for almost one year. It is fast, reliable (no crashes or freeze ups so far). CS5 opens in 8 seconds and runs brilliantly. A bit tough to use in open sunshine, but just find a bit of shade and its OK.

No Windows tablet was reviewed? I have been using a Samsung Series 7 tablet for one year using Windows 8 Beta and Photoshop CS5. The system is fassst, CS5 opens in 8 seconds, the system is stable, and the 12.1 inch screen is sharp and gives accurate colors. Connectability is excellent, and I use a 36 Gb micro-SD for additional storage. Battery life while running CS5 is approximately 3 hours. It's better than my iPad 2 and the Asus Windows tablet that I had.

On British Wheels challenge (4 comments in total)

This challenge is full, but at least one of the entries is of a flower (perhaps a British flower) and one entry is of an American Mustang. Allowing these entries to remain deprives someone of a chance to enter

On Me n My Ford in the British Wheels challenge (3 comments in total)

This is a US Ford Mustang and is not remotely British. Also this car has license plates from Abu Dhabi, a town that I have lived in for more than 30 years. This photo is circa 1990 and was taken on the Corniche, so why is the Taken Date given as 2011?

Sorry, but this is pathetic. I have tried almost all the mirrorless cameras, and none have been able to replicate the reality of shooting with a DSLR. Every one of them has the same issue - great sensor, lousy focusing. Unless you are into shooting from the hip and understand zone focusing (which is almost impossible with the new cameras), save your money and your frustration, and get a decent FF DSLR.

On LotusElise in the Lotus challenge (4 comments in total)

Mozzy, I agree with you on the merits (or lack of) of this particular photo, but these are popularity contests, not judgements on the technical merits of a photo - unfortunately. It's evident that the participation rate in these challenges has been declining over the last 6 months, with some the challenges attracting a participation rate of 20% or less.

I always bought Leica optics, but never Leica bodies. The lenses are unbeatable, but the bodies are behind the times and don't offer the features of a NEX or a FF Canon. I'm getting great results from a NEX 7 with a Leica Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4, and Metabones adapter. The best part is that I will be able to upgrade to the next generation body without having to sell a kidney. I think people who get goofy about Leica bodies are just looking for recognition for having cool equipment.

On JAC_8839 in the Jaguar challenge (2 comments in total)

Sorry to say, but the first and seond place photos are about the most trite images possible of a Jaguar automobile. Both by the same photographer, they are essentially the the same image from two different angles, and do nothing to convey the essence of a Jag
