On Nikon D5300 preview (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mirrorless Crusader: You could get the RX10 for $100 less than the D5300 + 18-140mm, and you get a better lens, faster aperture, better wide angle, smaller size, and a superior viewfinder.

I was thinking the RX10 is potentially a nice cam but very very expensive for what it is. However when compared to the D5300+18-140 it starts to look attractive even at the price it is. As for the sensor comparison, with a f2.8 lens the sensor will see about the same amount of light (density) as a APSC DSLR at f5.6. Dam, that RX10 is looking attractive - but I'll wait for the tests (particularly how good the lens really is and the cams responsiveness) and see how (if) the price drops over the next few months.

On SMARTPHONE in the Reading on Gadgets challenge (2 comments in total)

I think this one is looking in to a mirror and checking that she has not got any spinich in her teeth.

On Hunter in the Transparent or Translucent Insect Wings challenge (12 comments in total)

For me this has to be a contender for one of the shots of the year (although I've just seen it was taken in 2011).

On The power of 'SLT' challenge (15 comments in total)

"which easily show us why SLT are new generation technology and better than a regular DSLR"
I judged the images based on the above criteria. However, I have to say that in most photos here the SLT gives no identifable advantage. There are still some great shots though.

On Winter landscape in the Rural Winter challenge (12 comments in total)

Well deserved first place. The shadow on the snow makes it stand out.

On Sunbird in the Sony SLT A-55 challenge (2 comments in total)

Lovely capture. I particularly like the geometric similarly between the bird and the flower petal.

On Storm at Sunset in the Sony SLT A-55 challenge (2 comments in total)

Many thanks for the comment.
The picture to me represents the strength of the EFV over OVF. I shot in manual mode and dialled down the exposure until I could SEE what I wanted and shot (I have used both OVF and EVF and there are strengths in both, so I dont want to start a O/EVF bun fight).
Perhaps could have been improved by using fill-in flash (or HDR) to pick out the detail/colour in the foreground foliage. Also a slightly wider shot would have given more contrast between the blue sky and the storm clouds.

On Old Tyme Wheels challenge (7 comments in total)

I think the host was being a bit creative as Tyme is the old (obsolete) way of spelling Time!

On Aleatoric Forms: Open Subjects from Abstract Mediums challenge (6 comments in total)

My entry was disqualified, but I was not given an explanation as to why. I did carefully consider the rules before entry. Explanations help us not to make repeat 'errors' in the future.

On On the bed... in the Wife challenge (15 comments in total)

Beautiful photo, beautiful woman (cute nose) and the best argument I've seen in a long time against the megapixel race.

Well done

On lilly in the Water Lilies challenge (1 comment in total)

OK Photo, I just can't tell its a water lilly (no context) hence the low mark.

Sorry

Fabulous picture. What I find even more amazing than the photo is that somebody gave it a 1 star rating!.

On Mufassa in the Soft and fluffy challenge (2 comments in total)

The rules weren't totally ignored, they were only ignored by a substantial proportion of the entrants, presumably most of the voters and the organiser.

Other than that the rules seemed to have been followed.

I like the way you piled the clouds onto the hillside.

Yes really. But its just my point of view. There is no right answer. Its still a nice photo though.

Well composed and a lovely contrast of man-made and nature. I would liked to have seen the picture with still water and an unbroken reflection.

My view is this very good photo better meets the challenge objective than my first place photo as the buildings are more central to the photographic story. My only suggestion would be to crop-out the ugly telegraph poles/lines in the foreground.
