On Hanging On in the close up at the pond and chat challenge (9 comments in total)

Sharp, great color. Perhaps I would crop the flower at the difference in color (inverted "V")

On Glass House challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

Colpro: The challenge is for your interpretation of "Glasshouse".

This is challenge # 5 - in the "WANDERINGS" SERIES.

Plain, understandable English.

Any of the above - your interpretation of how your photo represents " Glass House". The Host hasn't identified any specific "glass" OR "house" restriction. All of the entries so far seem to be of office blocks - do they count as "houses"? I dunno!

Glass House is the 5th. CHALLENGE in a series that the Host calls "Wanderings". The 4 preceding Challenges were - "Lanterns", "Gloves Found", "Shaved or Bald Heads", "Result of Fire". What any of these Challenge Titles have to do with "Wanderings" I have no idea. BUT, as one may interpret the Title (Glass House" in this case) in any way one wishes, there is nothing ambiguous (no ambiguity) in the challenge title or requirements, surely?

On Wild invertebrate/s challenge (3 comments in total)

I wasn’t too sure, so I Wikipedia’d :
An invertebrate is an animal without a backbone.
IE. All animals - except fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

I RETRACT MY "COMPLAINT" - WITH APOLOGIES!! THE PHOTO's ARE almost IDENTICAL BUT ARE TWO DIFFERENT PHOTO'S OF THE SAME SCENE.

Direct link | Posted on Jan 12, 2012 at 08:14 UTC as 2nd comment

I am new to challenges. Maybe I am wrong, but I found two identical photo's entered into two challenges. Basically "no problem". - except if the above photo complied with the rules for -Blue Toned Sceneries - Exploring the Use of Incandescent White Balance in Broad Daylight) then the photo in Challenge (My best picture this week (captured from Dec 24 - Dec 30, 2011) seems a strange coincidence? Specs. 32/35mm, 1/200 - 1/160. Ap and ISO are the same. No mention of WB on either. Is my assumption wrong??

On Creative Filters: Macro challenge (7 comments in total)

Extension tubes are not lenses, dedicated or otherwise. They fit between the body and any "non-macro" lens. I use extension tubes for all my macro work - why would these not be acceptable? Yours screw on the front, mine screw on the back ......
Just interested, that's all.

I am not trying to be "clever" or controversial, but are birds really classified as animals? I have always believed "Animals", "Reptiles" and "Birds" were the classifications?
OK, OK. Official definition is that "If it's not human it's animal"!! Bees, birds and bears are all "animals". WOW!!

On DSC_0007(b) in the Creative bokeh challenge (19 comments in total)

Nice take of only shooting a fraction of a full flower head, with the water adding a lot of punch and interest. Great DOF and sharp focus. The background doesn't compete. I wouldn't change anything.

On Grass High Key 1600 in the Creative bokeh challenge (17 comments in total)

Think you captured your subject matter just right. Personally I am very wary of square format - but that has nothing to do with your entry - it works for this photo.

On Orchids in the Creative bokeh challenge (16 comments in total)

Nought wrong with DOF or focus - but the photo seems "top heavy"? I know the blooms were hanging down, it just has a strange effect. Perhaps a good crop to bottom and RHS would help? I'm guessing ....

On DSC_0111 in the Creative bokeh challenge (18 comments in total)

Pity the sand wasn't more white - photo almost looks "monochrome". That aside it is still a good entry.

On Twins in the Creative bokeh challenge (15 comments in total)

I would prefer the main bloom to be in sharper focus and a portrait frame.

On 20110318_3812 in the Creative bokeh challenge (26 comments in total)

Must have been a very tight DOF as the front lily 's edge furtherest from the camera seems out of focus? Not a criticism - the composition ad texture all works for me!

On DSC_7274 in the Creative bokeh challenge (17 comments in total)

I like the colors, but think the grey background is overpowering. I would crop photo to have just the red bloom in the centre of frame. Would also sharpen it if you are able.....

On St. Bokeh in the Creative bokeh challenge (27 comments in total)

Great fun and great color. Get rid of the distraction in bottom right is all you need to do. Cheerful entry and technically on the button.

On Drifting Trough the Air in the Creative bokeh challenge (19 comments in total)

I thought the leaf was not as sharp as it could be. Zoomed in heavily to find the focus is not 100%. As a "mood" photo - no problem, but as a DOF exercise? I would also crop to portrait to increase the illusion of "falling".

On Spring is everywhere in the Creative bokeh challenge (19 comments in total)

I agree with the 3D effect comment. Great color and DOF. Fits the challenge requirements perfectly.
