On _DSF0430 in the Large Aperture challenge (1 comment in total)

Anyone just glancing at this is going to give it a low score, but it's actually kind of cool.

On One Man Competition in the Action Sequence Photography challenge (1 comment in total)

This is one of the better challenges I've seen top to bottom as evidenced by this excellent image at 32 of 33. It has a strong visual rhythm and an almost "supernatural" feel to it. Nice job.

This photo has it all... a great story plus the colors and framing create a very strong visual impact. Really nice job.

On Behind The Scenes At Marcy's in the My best picture this week challenge (1 comment in total)

This photo finished low in the challenge voting because of the subject, but it's a great image. The lines, shapes, and colors are visually interesting. It also connects on numerous levels. It expresses loneliness/isolation, fear of being alone or lost, mystery (what's at the end of the path), depression (sickly flourescent lighting, abandonment, what was it like to work here everyday), failure (business gone), mischief (chance to run around unnoticed), etc.

Great job,
jbf

jbf: I tried to create an account and set it up yesterday. On the Photos page I saw no way to configure who I'm sharing photos with. I dug into the account settings and eventually found some options, but it was unclear what they did. I wanted to turn off auto enhancement and edit the photos myself. I couldn't figure out how to turn off auto enhancement or bring up a photo in an editor. If anyone can tell me how to do those three things (control sharing of photos and folders, turn off auto enhancement, edit photos in Google+), I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.

Thanks for the info

On can u see it in the The Image Within challenge (1 comment in total)

I see it, but I must be in the minority. It might have gotten more votes if the focus was better. Regardless, good eye to spot this.

On nubes in the Faces in Strange Places challenge (1 comment in total)

David,

I love a photo that looks like garbage when you first look at it, but after a while you see what the photographer saw and connect with it. In this case, the face is incredibly expressive and the image has such great texture and the tones have great variety and detail. I don't know how you saw this composition, but it was certainly a moment of brilliance on your part.

On 21343bd56079bd6fec58c66dc840d58ad35d6901_400r in the Cellphone Cameras challenge (1 comment in total)

Jaclyn,

Your photos won't score very well on dpreview because they are small and because many people here are focused on image quality since this is primarily a gear site. Regardless, I'm a fan. Despite the size and IQ, your photos are eyecatching. They have a strong visual style and point of view.

Thanks for sharing,
jbf
