RuthC: Congratulations, Henry Lozykowski, on placing fourth in this 'Interesting Insects' Challenge. Your skipper caterpillar reminds me of a red-headed clown, ready to juggle the blue balls. This is a beautiful, bright cheerful capture which shows nature at its best. Ruth :-)

RuthC: This is a great capture, Henry, of your robber fly laying eggs in the spent flower(?). It deserves to be in the top four places in this interesting challenge. Wonderful clarity, and detail in the subject. Ruth :-)

Female robber fly uses their ovipositor to deposit eggs in dead flower head.

On !!!BOKEH PHOTOGRAPHY!!! challenge (16 comments in total)

“bokeh” look at:
http://www.zeiss.com/c12567a8003b8b6f/embedtitelintern/cln_35_bokeh_en/$file/cln35_bokeh_en.pdf

"Nine rounded diaphragm blades guarantee images with exceptional bokeh"
Wherever there are reports about a new camera lens, this sentence is often found. What characteristic of the image is actually meant by it? And what does the diaphragm have to do with it?
We would like to address these questions today. But because "bokeh" is closely related to "depth of field," I would like to first begin with those topics on the following pages. It is true that a great deal has already been written about them elsewhere, and many may think that the topics have already been exhausted. Nevertheless I am sure that you will not be bored. I will use a rather unusual method to show how to use a little geometry to very clearly understand the most important issues of ‘depth of field’.

Thank you Cmantx and Niccum, for you kind comments, unfortunately sandbagging is widespread it is an epidemic.

Look at: Challenge Discussions
Thanasaki: Negative Voting DESTROYS "Challenges"

In earlier times, when most people voted honestly on challenges -even when some, wrongly thought that "half star" vote was better than nothing- the best pictures came mostly out as winners. Now, I think, there is a "targeted" low votiing on really good photos, clearly "aiming to destroy" them. I cannot find the right word to describe these "people" doing this, but this really diminishes the fun for participating in Challenges. ... So I'd suggest to DPREVIEW to TAKE ACTION URGENTLY and change the voting system and also quickly procceed to the other changes (as suggested by many and respectful DPReview members, almost a year ago). Let's give again "Challenges" the fun and the prestige (in terms of honesty, good taste and image quality) as it was some 2 years ago.
