The 'eye' is so real it is almost spooky. Good composition too.

Worthy winner that is a great photo in its own right but also sums-up the challenge title perfectly.

In reply to:

RuthC: This is a wonderfully peaceful capture of a landscape far from everyone, and far from 'civilisation'. Dickerson, you deserve this third place in this challenge. The smallness of the home in the centre of the sweeping hills gives us a real sense of perspective here. I like the many shades of greens, the sandy brown stream meandering through the picture, while the rather ominous clouds all add to the isolation. Ruth :-)

Thanks very much Ruth. The photo was actually taken from a busy main road, so not quite as isolated as it looks.

On Fishing Village challenge (8 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dickerson: Just scored the entries to this challenge. This one is OK but I was supprised just how many of the entries lacked .. well .. a village in the scene. Some were obviously taken FROM villages but were not OF the village. Many had a boat or boats, fish, fishermen etc as the main subject and not A village. Because of this, and I feel mean, this is probably the lowest set of scores I have ever awarded.

Pleytime, Agreed otherwise it would be just a village. Does not change my initial comment though.

Steve Throndson: Lovely photo! Amazing quality from a phone. I'm impressed. This was one of my top favorites in the challenge.

Steve, many thanks for your kind comment. I have only just started using the iPhone 4s and I too have been amazed by the quality tha it can produce (in good light). I am a little disapointed that others did not rate it well.

Regards

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.

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.
