On Long Exposure Photography challenge (4 comments in total)

Well, it would have been helpful if the host better defined what he meant by "wide angle" and "long exposure" - but with 40 entries already, it's kind of late . . .

Good job. Marvelous capture! Love to see the effort someone puts into a creative, well done shot.

On Panoramic photos II night time challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: What a disappointment. The same type photos (or the same actual photo) continue to be entered multiple times in different challenges, and the voters cannot seem to get creative or open minded enough to select other more inventive shots.

I'm not questioning the quality of Mr. Shapiro's entry - but he's already placed 1st in a previous challenge. Perhaps you're new here, Michael, but how many 1st places does one need to figure out you've got a good photo? It's like a "ringer" gets thrown into the competition, and the voters take the bait like gullible sheep.

Alex: great shot. Whatever aircraft you were flying in to take this photo must have had a clean windshield!

What is that title? Some kind of code?

Don't know how high your photo will place, but thank you for the educational information.

Reminiscent of the "Old Masters" painters. Excellent work!

Buzz Lightyear: What do you mean by "photo doctoring"?

Personally, anything a photographer wants to do in post-processing is fine with me. The end result is all I care about. If I like it, it gets my vote; if not, no vote or a low score.

Pretty darn nice for a 13-year old, 5 MP camera!

Simple: just don't vote for them.

Very cool!

Thank you, thejohnnerparty. I rarely see a shot of the city taken from this viewpoint, but it seemed a natural.

On Rear View #3 challenge (17 comments in total)

I suggest that Bhimaprasad Maiti's complaints likely cannot be resolved through logical explanations by the Dpreview challenge hosts or administration. Something else going on here, if you get my drift.

Semantic arguments about the meaning of "beginner participants" aside . . .

What apparently appeals to voters is that to be a top contender for this kind of challenge, you need a 24 MP, full frame Nikon camera!

On P9390961_ISO125 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (5 comments in total)

Just purchased an FZ1000 (on its way). I was a somewhat concerned by reviews that said the wide angle view was a bit "soft", but this shot looks awfully sharp to me. Apparently, I needn't have been worried.
