Congratulations, another really excellent picture.Cheers.
That's a real nice picture, well done.
A Proper title would have been nice.
Good to see, hope his pals come along as well 😋
RuthC: This is NOT a Damselfly, but an iridescent blue scarab beetle: Hoplia coerulea.
Thanks RuthC.Sorry about that, the reason is that I had sorted out two pics for the 'Iridescent Challenge' and one was a Damsel Fly !!!Got it all mixed up,...Doh !!!!!It was your 'Intriuging' post that prompted me to concoct this for entry!!I don't suppose it is possible to edit this now so I will just have to suffer the comments 😊Thanks for the ID I had no idea what it was but it seems they are pretty common in France.Regards.
Gamin55: Seems that winter in Canada ends in February.
I'm looking forward to this end of winter too !!!!Still odd patches of snow till recently on the tops.
I'm looking forward to this three month Winter. 😖
Very good, well deserved win.Cheers.
Buzz Lightyear: I dunno, John. An aircraft carrier could be construed as a really BIG boat!
Say that to the Captain and you could find yourself on the next catapult launch off the flight deck. 😆
John Spurs: is a ship a boat?
A boat is something you launch off a ship. 😀
Mond: I'm afraid the only thing this has taught me about VSCO presets is that nobody buys them.
I can see your points of view and appreciate that it is always interesting to see what others are making of some particular issue that interests you.However, the fact that this particular software seems to be more aimed towards the serious PRO user makes it a bit out of the realms of experience for the people who contribute to these forums although several of those are PROS and submit images which are exemplary using the more common softwares. The pointer towards purchase is not really what I like and the price of these filters at $119.00 is not cheap. Probably justified by PROS who have specific requirements and budgets to achieve their objectives.I did note there is a free edition but again, it is a case of what makes this VSCO software stand out above the more common stuff available?I have at no point derated this software since it is probably excellent but, in my own opinion, outside the domain of the average photographer.Cheers.
I'm afraid I still see these VSCO based Challenges as a sales pitch since you can't enter without making use of this particular brand of filter.The filters might be very good but it seems that their ownership is not widespread amongst the individuals who frequently participate. You, personally, have won all the challenges so far due to no other entries. Little satisfaction in that.I also think that most people can achieve the results they desire from the many other more common software suites available.I am pleased that the cost of this software is 'peanuts' for you but I'm afraid that is not the case for all of us.Your list of gear is also impressive, again beyond many ordinary folks but I can add that my stuff isn't too bad either with an NEC PA272w monitor a full spec Mac and my Rolex wrist watch etc.Give us all a break.
Moon0326: Wow...really emotional photo. Old man + cane + clock + weather. I love the composition!!
Yes, but not just any old man, Winston Churchill.
Beautiful picture of this outstanding historical site.Sadly it has just been destroyed so your wonderful picture will now be one of the remaining images of this place in all its glory.Cheers.
Agree, seems like more of a sales pitch.They are probably OK but at the cost of $119.00 each it seems, like a no no.
No surprise there are only three entries and all by the same person when the software must be purchased to qualify for entry.
$119.00 a pop, good sales pitch, not.
Think that the need to purchase VSCO SoftWare is a bit much.$119.00 seems a bit of a sales pitch to me.
Like this shot, nice.Cheers.
Nice shot, well done, not an easy subject. Seems to be enjoying the sun !!
Super shot, sometimes heard them and seen their tracks when skiing in Italy but never actually been lucky enough to see one.Thanks and well done.
