On Miss Maevia in the New Species challenge (3 comments in total)

Subject is small, depth of field is very narrow ,....A small aperture allows for more of subject to be in focus. With a more open aperture perhaps only the eyes would be in focus. Thanks for your comment. Charles Baxter

On 1358E in the Creative Flash challenge (3 comments in total)

Thanks for your comments. For the background I used a piece of material called Black Beauty, a totally opaque material (like velvet). This was purchased from a company called Backgrounds in a Bag, left over from my days as a wedding-studio photographer. I used utility clips to clamp the material in place behind the salvia plant.

On POWER in the Rainy day - Black and White challenge (7 comments in total)

Thank you all for your comments. I did no retouching on the pole. scanned a slide image from years ago, and converted to B&W, that's all. I will have to drive out the ranch road and see if the pole is still there after all these years. Maybe the Texas summers caused the warp!. Charles Baxter

On Cruise Ship challenge (5 comments in total)

My favorite (5 stars) image has been withdrawn?? I could not find the image when it was time to vote. The image was the bow of cruise ship in Key West with sea gulls on the mooring lines. The wonderful turquoise and blues really made the image happen. I don't recall who the poster was , but this was a winner. Too bad!

On Wasps & Hornets challenge (6 comments in total)

The Blueberry Wasp image was finally determined to be osmia ribifloris (a bee), so I have withdrawn the image C. Baxter

On blueberry wasp in the Wasps & Hornets challenge (4 comments in total)

Further searching in bugGuide.net makes me believe that this is indeed osmia ribifloris, a bee, not a wasp. Probably a good idea to withdraw.

On Weak Signal in the The World of Cats & Dogs challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks for your remarks. As for the flash, because of the distance to the subject on the roof, I probably used the flash on manual, at full power or perhaps a little less, in order to try to balance ambient light. Fill flash drops off quickly in outdoor settings. Best regards, Charles Baxter
