Good on you for changing the traditional, expected perspective, iMac! Really beautiful shot.

On Inner Beauty of the Nautilus in the The Beauty of Seashells challenge (6 comments in total)

Thanks for your compliments, Ruth. I used a light table to light the shell from underneath, and then shone a flashlight over the top briefly to bring out the details of the top of the shell. The image actually first started out orange/bronze colored, but I experimented with the white balance and found that the cooler hue actually seemed to make the shell "glow" more.

Sorry - this may be a good photo, but I am so sick of seeing this ubiquitous image!

On A To Z - Letter G challenge (1 comment in total)

1/2 the first 16 top placements (incl. 1st and 2nd) are bird pictures. The "Bird Brigade" seems to have a hold on the voting process. What is this fascination with birds anyway?

On Review: Ona Lima camera strap article (134 comments in total)
In reply to:

extraone: problems I see
1-way overpriced.
2- metal buckles are the weak point. it will also scratch the gear when youre placing it down .the strap comes down & will scratch the lens/body. as well, when U lift up the camera up to your eye, it too is how it will scratch your gear.
3-the leather looks stiff as hell. they should have softened it. even the weight of the camera doesnt help w/straightening the leather out. look at the 3rd picture w/the plaid background. look at those waves.
4-there's no strap loops to hold the extra leather straps from flopping about, making it look very sloppy. its obvious not a lot of thought was given to this.
5-it does have a nice look to it, but its such a sloppy implementation.

I wonder how stinky the leather is.overall, no more than $40. me personally, give me my nikon AN-6Y & im in the clouds. I was considering the black rapid, but dont want my gear flopping about on my thigh and people being able to walk by &kneeing it

Thanks for the tip RE: Joby. I just ordered the 3-way camera strap (normally $40) from Adorama for 1/2 price! Looks like a fabulous strap.

On New Baby In Town 1983 in the -Giving Birth- (BW+ Border + Title watermark) challenge (4 comments in total)

Love the shot; it's very "Norman Rockwell-ish" - but what kind of camera is a Nikon FM2?

Perhaps you meant: "stigmatas" (wounds of Christ)?

On Black & White Moon in Detail challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Given that there is so little room for creative presentations, I predict that the person with the most expensive, very sharp, long telephoto lens who knows how to do focus stacking will be the winner - or perhaps someone who attaches their camera to a capable, powerful telescope. An astro-photographer I'm not.

Of course not . . . but it's not likely that the person would then submit a substandard entry. I'm just saying that the top contenders will have top-notch gear and cameras. Just you wait and see.

On Red. in the Lips (full color only) challenge (5 comments in total)

One would think that 2 previous 1st places is enough indication that you've done a good job. How many more do you need before you're convinced?

On Soft Focus challenge (3 comments in total)

You sample photo looks out of focus to me . . . parts are in focus; others not. I would think "soft" focus means the whole image has a slightly blurry or hazy appearance. Please clarify.
