On photo Miss Maevia in the New Species challenge (2 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 photo 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.

super. the wire grate seems to mimick a web and the back lighting is wonderful.

On photo 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 Challenge:8965 (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My favorite (5 stars) image has been withdrawn??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!
