PaulSnowcat: Those 4/3 lenses re just great. Maybe the best out there... But how many users still work with 4/3 system? They've scammed us with that E5, that actually was a E3Mk2, nothing more... And now they expect someone to come back? Well, a few would. But very few.

And of something is made for a very few ppl, that something will be VERY expensive I afraid ><

The E-5 was heads and tails over the E-3. The EM-5 did replace my E-5 so I could take more lenses and less bulk and weight with me where ever I go; day hike or into the back country!

cosmoxl: The rules call for out of camera jpeg. What if we only have the raw file?

Same question here! What about raw images that were processed "as hot"?

On Galen Rowell's Alpenglow challenge (26 comments in total)

Sorry to reply so late but I was in the back country of the Sierra Nevada's for 8 days, unable to recieve email. I know what aplenglow is yet my photo fit the descripton n the rules perfectly. If you were going by the strict rules on the internet then many of the other photos in the contest should have been disqualified also.

On Birdbath @ Budapest in the The birdbath (man-made) challenge (1 comment in total)

It is technically a man-made bird bath so it will not be disqualified.

RuthC: The capture date in this challenge makes it difficult for those of us in the cold, wet, southern hemisphere, where the poor birds aren't bathing with such cheerful abandon as they do in the summer months.

Good point Ruth! Up hear in Wisconsin they are everywhere! I'll change the capture date.

On Lilies in the That Colorful Lily! challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a water lily and because I did not exclude them in the rules I will allow it.

You are right Ruth. Lilies have three petals and three sepals (six tepals).
