Beautiful dog. You captured the personality in the eyes.
I like squirrels but these are about to become a real problem. Still, it's a good pic.
That engages me.
What an absolutely beautiful landscape.
I'm always on the lookout for good winter scenes. This is a good one.
Meets the challenge very well. Good photo journalism.
I like the Mig 15 picture. Wish we had an F-86 Saber Jet to go with it. Two of my favorites.
I love rodeo and that shot captures the essence.
I don't see how this one meets the actual goals of the challenge.
I love minimalist images. In this case less is more. This is a beautiful image. I wish I had done it.
Good ink. Bright colors, clean lines and good contrast. And, oh yeah, a beautiful young lady.
Who cares what the biologists call it. Sometimes names just get in the way. What it really is is a beautiful and extremely well done image with a surprise built into it.
Incredible… and edible.
A beautiful image exceptionally well done. I wish I had done it. It definitely has the painterly quality. But, I'm wondering about the macro requirement in the challenge rules?
I wonder if a system of throwing out the highest and the lowest votes for an image might produce a more realistic result.
It's your art and you can do it any way you want to.
It's a beautiful picture and I really like the composition and detail. But… the first thing I noticed is that the horizon level gives the appearance of sloping ever so slightly to the right. Maybe I'm just too sensitive to that. Personally, I would have to fix it.
I love the old Hollywood promotional portraits of this style. And I love doing them. Yours is an excellent example. It was so much easier doing these with PS3 when the spotlight effect was available in filters. I really miss that filter. So much so that I keep two Mac computers on my desk. Once in a while I'll do a portrait and transfer it to the old Mac and do a b&w spotlight effect on it. They always get oohs and aahs from viewers.
Makes me dizzy just thinking about it. Good shot.
