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.

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

On Lines Reflected in the Challenge Voters challenge (2 comments in total)

This reminds me of the photography of Harry Callahan. It's a true abstract.

Great work,

On Hi5 in the The Songs Of Life: Changes challenge (1 comment in total)

Taking photos of animals in cages is not a new idea, but this photo communicates exceptionally well. Excellent job. FYI, I found a little book in a store about a week ago full of great zoo photography. Here's the corresponding website: http://www.brittaphotography.com/animals-places.php

That's "stare", not "stair". And no, I wasn't lying about the mind altering substances, just tired.

On - in the Book challenge (2 comments in total)

If you stair at this one for a couple minutes, you start seeing different things. And for the record, no, I'm not on any mind altering substances at the moment. :)

Very creative photograph,

On Kuwait Hit Monster Sandstorm in the Your Best Shoot of the year 2011 #1 challenge (3 comments in total)

I used to think the special effects in the 1999 movie The Mummy were laughably over the top. If this photo is real, I was wrong. Spectacular shot!

On Rainbow 1 in the Your Best Shoot of the year 2011 #1 challenge (1 comment in total)

This photo finished 269th out of 269. It has potential though. I did some obvious fixes (straightening of the horizon), and changes that are more subjective, i.e. low contrast as opposed to dark and stormy. The rainbow shows up better if it is darker, but I like a subtle, peaceful look for this image. Since Dick48 didn't post this in the Retouching forum, I downsized my version. Hopefully it's okay to post an edit.

On The Night Watchman in the Balance challenge (1 comment in total)

The silhouette of the man carries a lot of visual weight despite being black and very small in the frame thanks to the position and contrast. This photograph is not only balanced side-to-side, but top-to-bottom and near-to-far. The balancing act that it achieves can be seen in other aspects as well: modern vs. classical, big vs. small, ignored vs. admired. Extracting this composition from the given scene is a really impressive feat.

Great work,
jbf

On Once in a lifetime shot in the Hardest shot I ever took challenge (1 comment in total)

This was my favorite challenge to date. There are too many great images to mention so I'll focus on stories. The story by evilstevie is my favorite. Honorable mention goes to this one (short but sweet):

http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=411844

There were numerous other fun stories about difficulty with security guards, equipment, shutter timing, travel, weather, animals, etc.

Here are a few more that combine interesting stories with amazing images:
