VincentKV: Number 10 should not have been included as it will make some viewers desire to have such anti-nature objects in their homes.

I feel the same way, I don't think it should have been picked to be in a category with nature shots of live animals/birds/insects. It makes me wonder if the DPR staff that picked the categories/shots really can appreciate wildlife photography.

Why would you get this over the Tamron? The USB dock, or you had bad luck with Tamron, and you are sworn off buying Tamron. What are the odds that it is optically superior to the Tamron when the Tamron and the S version are close in optics now? I wonder how many of these will be manufactured and what kind of availability will there be.

Congratulations! Great timing catching him at the top of his leap. Love the look in his eyes, and the floppy ears are hilarious. Gives me a happy feeling every time I see this shot.
I may have to look at this image before I have my blood pressure taken at my next doctor's visit. I think it would take off 10-15 points:)

RuthC: Congratulations, cmantx on placing second in the weekly challenge with this beautiful capture of a little hummingbird. This picture has it all: the frozen action of the wings beating at around 100 beats per second, the details in the lovely bright plumage, and the red flowers which balance the picture perfectly. You are certainly the Master of hummingbird photography in these challenges. Ruth :-)

Thank You, Ruth. I'm lucky to have such a stunning subject to photograph this time of year. I try not to enter a hummingbird every week. Thanks for having this challenge. There are not very many bird challenges anymore.

Ed at Ridersite: Another beauty Carmen! Nearly snagged 1st. Awesome detail for in flight and a beautiful capture.

Thanks Ed. Anticipating where it will hover and putting the center spot on the eye is the trick. Also having a good lens and camera.

I wouldn't buy these if my life depended on it. Go sell your trash somewhere else. you have no business interjecting an ad in the middle of a challenge.

JoEick: Cool thing to do for the users of the website. Thanks DPR staff for putting this together. There are many talented photographers here who deserve a bit of recognition for their hard work.

I didn't take any keeper photos in 2014, so it will be nice to see what others have done.

Sorry, that I misunderstood the intent of your comment.

Any reason to be so rude about JoEick's comment? Maybe they were busy with whatever is going on with their life.

This is a wasted shot. Who takes a shot of a pile of sticks in real world?

That is an extremely well focused and exposed image. I think it shows the pack behavior. She seems to be looking up intently at the adult dog for "so what happens next".
