On I'm sorry.... in the Your Dog(s) in Black and White challenge (18 comments in total)

I love the expression in Joy's eyes. And you already know that dogs are not just tools to help us get more game. They are partners that we share the hunt with.

Beautiful columbine. Very good technical work for lighting, focus detail, color and contrast.

On pakkasvirta in the Ice, Snow & Everything Frosty challenge (4 comments in total)

Beautiful shot. Looks like there was an ice storm and blowing snow the night before. Great opportunities in that type of weather.

You made a really nice shot out of an otherwise fairly mundane view, MarioSS. Good work.

On NSC_9539 in the Florals challenge (3 comments in total)

I'm curious about which lens you used at 300mm f4.5. The center of the lutes is sharp enough to see the pollen bits. Might be something I'm looking for. Thanks for sharing a very nice picture with us.

MD150, I really admire your castle shot. Should make an excellent 16x24.

On TocalPanorama in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (7 comments in total)

Excellent shot, Photoman555. You did a great job. And the D800 should certainly be credited for capturing all the tonal nuances and transitions.

On Panther Creek in the Nikon D3000 series challenge (1 comment in total)

Good shot and good job of processing. Looks like you recovered all the colors and tones. Was that a 16-85 lens?

On Palermo, Sicily in the Old Banyan Tree challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice pic. The initials carved on that tree remind me that fools names and monkey faces are always found in public places.

Cliff Whittaker: I'm curious about why my image was DQ. It is a picture of a gray squirrel with the title Sciurus Carolininsis. What did I do wrong?

Sorry, I was camping for four days on a photo trip. Guess I missed your email. I'll try to do better next time. Thanks.

On Pollution for Power in the Pollution challenge (1 comment in total)

Beautiful shot of a steam engine. I can still remember the smell of the smoke and the chugging and hissing of those engines working up a coal train in the switch yard of Appalachia, VA.

On Nature's Bounty in the uncommon still life III challenge (3 comments in total)

That's a beautiful shotgun. What brand is it? Is that presentation Bastogne walnut? Oh, and a beautifully done picture, too.

On Indian palm squirrel in the Squirrel challenge (2 comments in total)

I have had more than a passing interest in squirrels my entire life. On patrol in the mountains NW of Hue in Vietnam in 1968 I saw two of those little Indian Palm Squirrels. I was lying hidden in the leaves and watched them because I had never seen squirrels like those and because I was using them as an early warning if something approached along the trail. I never saw that type of squirrel again and always wondered what kind they were. Now I know. Thank you very much.

This was taken in daylight. The molten steel is so bright that it fools the light meter and makes the surrounding area dark. See the window in the top right corner. The air is heavy with particulate matter and smoke which reduces contrast. I used continuous shutter to bracket 5 quick shots. When the steel was first poured from the furnace into the cauldron the light was so bright for a few seconds that my camera shut down. I think I could see the bones in my hand. Altogether, a good shooting experience.
