Thank you all (well nearly all, but nothing is perfect :)) for your kind and warm comments. the moment touched my heart and I'm happy it touched many others too. Radamczak, Your memory is as impressive as ever, and I hope all is well with you and yours too.
Thank you all very much, appreciate your kind and encouraging words.
The links and the photo on my signature don't work any more, one more set of annoying things on the new setup. I'm feeling less and less at home here.
Why did so many of my bookmarks disappear???
Why do the uploaded shots look less worse than before???
The consent of the people in the shot is a serious handicap for all street shooters, especially for shots taken before the announcement of the contest. I understand that taking shots on the street is still allowed in most countries, and there are millions of such shots on the net and on DPR too, so unless this rule is modified, many, myself included, won't be able to participate. I think it also goes afgainst the logic of the theme of modern connectivity.
applady2001: Awesome Image !!! Congratulations !!!
Thanks a lot! glad you like it.
your comment is much appreciated.
Very nice shot! is this in Jerusalem?
wonderful shot, I really liked it.
I don't understand, can it only be used with those two lenses or can previous 4/3 lenses be used such as the 1.7 pancake and others.
Very deserving shot, not easy to win these - well done!!!
> Good job Dov, well done.
I was thinking of putting it on your great b&w thread this week, but now I'll have to find something else :)
Oll and gwella
Glad you liked it.
For hosting this interesting challenge, I enjoyed many of the shots, and was happy to find people thought mine was worthy of 1st place.
All the best
Appreciate your comment - Dov
> I usually vote in the challanges I enter; I consider my own picture a dead centre and then vote above or bellow centre depending upon wether I think it's better or worse than mine, this sort of feels right to me as I'm always dissapointed that people are obviously voting strong photos of others down too boost there own chances. In the end though I don't think there is a truly fair way of voting without some sort of benchmark and a criteria.
Good idea, and i hope people are fair in their voting, it sounds childish to give low votes to better shots.> > That's a great shot Doto; I've never managed a decent street candid shot yet; I always bottle it!
I love candid photography, and I'm glad you like this one.

you described the situation perfectly, cut foot and all :) Thanks for your kind comment, and i'm happy you liked it so much.
I am indeed surprised with the results, and am happy people think so highly of my work.
big congratulations Jort on a great shot and tasteful PP - Dov
