On Spinner in the Rear View #2 challenge (8 comments in total)

FYI - I need to make a correction to the Exif data, above. I actually shot this with a Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4 lens with a 1.4x teleconverter and with the camera set on a 1.2x crop. That all adds up to the stated 500mm focal length.

Thanks for the kind remarks. I was thrilled to find this bud in my back yard and grateful I was able to do it justice in photographing it.

On B/W Still life - exactly 5 Objects required challenge (11 comments in total)

If I was judging this, I'd say about half of the entries met the 5 objects rule. And at least one is a streetscape, not a still life.

Chris Noble: I thought contest entries are supposed to be anonymous?

No problem, but didn't want to respond till after the voting. :)

You know, I never even thought of that when I responded. It was just reflexive to a compliment. Had not received one before while in this phase of a challenge.

On Egret Fishing in the My best picture this week challenge (7 comments in total)

I vote a lot and I rarely give 5 stars, but I had no hesitation giving this one a five. It conveys its story with elegant simplicity. Great shot.

Wonderful shot from the lighting to the composition. I can't imagine how anyone could have given it a 1-star.
