Puzzled how this could be "hand held" for 160 seconds and still be sharp.

On Night at McWay Falls, Big Sur in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (12 comments in total)

Cropped slightly to take out some extraneous bushes in the lower frame. Yes, single frame - although star field and foreground masked separately for better processing.

Thank you all! I am so pleased with this shot - not even so much that it placed 1st, but that I got rewarded with one of Ruth's wonderful succinct and descriptive comments! I always look forward to reading them.

Now that you've pointed it out to me - I agree!

Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing how well someone lifted the shadows without a "before" and "after" along side of each other.

On 'Round The Bend in the Curve challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks, Mike. This is such a great location to shoot sunset images in particular. It kind of a little known and hidden spot and I go here often to take pictures.

Voters don't know anything. This deserved a MUCH higher placement, IMHO.

This tree is like gold for you, Grant. Congrats on another great photo.

Great capture, cgravel. Unless the shot is severely cropped (or you're protected in some way), that's seem a bit close to a wild lion at only 120mm!

On Three challenge (5 comments in total)

Love your challenges, Barb: simple to understand, no restrictions to speak of, allows for individual, creative, artistic expression, easy for viewers to vote on, and (I presume) easy for you to administer. Brilliant! Wish other challenges hosts would follow a similar format.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: EXIF information will not show the type of lens, especially if it is a different brand as the camera. It would have to be manually entered on the entry form.

Got it. The lens info only shows up after voting is complete, so to see it before voting, it must be put on the description page.

There is a section on the entry page which identifies the camera and EXIF data where one can search for and select various lenses for entry also. Although highly unlikely, it would only be necessary to put the lens info in the challenge description section if the specific lens could not be found by searching.

Great challenge idea, Hans. Few restrictions, open, creative theme, and a few easy to understand rules (for most of us anyway!). Good on you!

Nice. Hard to go wrong with that $6000 lens!

In reply to:

citizenlouie: Well, I want to point out something about copyright comment on the Photo 9. Yes, you do need model release, and it's not misconstrued. That's one of the lessons you learn when you take your photography class (and property release, for that matter). The tabloid is in constant legal fight (and they don't mind paying that if they believe they can earn more money selling the paper or blackmail the celebrity in question. It's not the norm of a proper photography practice!). Let's not forget those people paparazzi shot are "public" figures. Their legal right to their image is much more limited to that of regular individuals like us or the cosplay models. Because court judge would definitely ask how much privacy does the person in the photo expects, and that will affect the outcome of the law suit. Lesson... model release is a yes because it's respectful, if not legal.

As usual, there is so much misinformation and assumptions here about this legal situation. If you care to, I suggest you read this informative discussion from an actual attorney. The "Conclusion" section is a nice summary.

photominion: Massive HDR halos in 1..

I have the full size image up on my HD screen, and I don't see any halos. Bright sky behind the airplane's outline . . . Yes; halos . . . no. Eyesight need checking, photominion?
