This is a beautiful location but the first thing I notice is the tilted horizon line. Also, the blurred foreground is a distraction. A little attention to detail and some judicious cropping could have improved this picture.

And she's still a great looking babe, Clal. Congratulations to both of you.
My wife and I spent our R&R in Hawaii in 1968. We've been married 53 years now and she's still a great looking babe, too.

The dramatic lighting on the detail in the face create a really emotional portrait. Good job.

On Nobody knows... in the Tracks in Nature challenge (6 comments in total)

Excellent utilization of wide angle. And very sharp from corner to corner. Good job.

SmilerGrogan: I have a new idea for a test to replicate the harsh climatic conditions that many of your readers will subject the lenses to. Store them in a freezer for a couple of days (preferably a walk-in) and then test them for autofocus performance and accuracy while they're still cold. Then repeat the test by storing them in an oven heated to 110°F for a couple of days (most modern ovens will hold that temp easily). I know my Nikon gear has survived worse out in the world but I wonder how these third-party lenses would do under tougher circumstances.

Maybe near-field isn't what it's usually used for, but that is exactly what has attracted me to wide angle. I want to be able to put primary interest on a close object and let the viewer's eye be led through the image to a background at infinity. And I want it all sharp.

Nice shot. I would like to see it as a vertical shot with a little more environment around the subject.

On Snowflake in the Macro - Make it Shine challenge (10 comments in total)

Thanks for sharing your snowflake and how you did it. Just wondering if you had to it all outside in order to keep the snowflake from melting before you finished?

On Pride of the Pond in the The Lotus Pond challenge (7 comments in total)

Beautiful lotus. I've had a shot similar to that in mind for some time but still haven't found the subject. You and your Olympus did an excellent job.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2996 comments in total)

Amazing!! Who would have thought that the announcement of a 50 mpx FF Canon would touch of so much apoplexy. Judging from the comments below hospital emergency rooms must be overflowing with heart attack and high blood pressure victims. All caused by the announcement of a new Canon camera. Amazing!!

Makes me think of Charles Bronson and "Breakheart Pass". And that's not a negative.
