sparkey2: Winning is over rated anyway......... Basically if I can win a challenge (4 I think) then anyone can win cuz i'm not that good. I also mistakenly entered a color image to this challenge then a day or so later I realized my error and DQ'ed myself before Mr. Host could and choose not to re enter the challenge.

Nothing is wrong with reading but as I said "mistakenly" meaning I missed the B&W part. There are times when I am reading my eyes jump over certain details and that was one of the times.

That's a unusual border concept.

On Selfie with you and one other person challenge (16 comments in total)
In reply to:

estero: Selfie challenge.
My entry was rejected because I did not state it was taken with a remote or timer????

Rules never stated that if a timer is used it had to make that point so not to be voted down. There are several other pictures entered that a timer was more then likely used by the looks of it. Where are the points made that they were taken using a timer?
Where would one stat that a timer was used. My Canon had a remote timer that I used many times for pictures. I had the camera mounted on a polling platform on the boat. The Canon remote was used.

Don't worry about being DQ'ed, I scanned all the pictures and no one else did either so before long everyone will be DQ'ed right along with you.

So then what is the usual percentage of people that vote in challenges they don't enter. I'll guess very low. I think your voting experiment will be a flop.

On Jumping spider in the Macro - Arthropod(s) challenge (4 comments in total)

What a great capture but I'm certain that's a tarantula, not a jumping spider. Jumpers are very very small. 1/4 inch or so.

On Mosquito in the A To Z - Letter M challenge (10 comments in total)

Blasted blood sucker! I'm wondering how you achieved this since they usually detach and fly away when anything comes close to them? Excellent capture no matter how you pulled it off.

John De Bord Photography: I really need to try the welding glass ND.....

Not hard to find the welding glass at all. I bought one at Home Depot a few years back. Any store that sells welding supplies will have them. A few tips on using one is be sure you focus and frame your shot first because it's too dark to see anything through one. Expect it to be at least 10 stops. Shoot raw because they may look black but the are green and you will need to do some serious color adjustments after the shot or convert it to black and white.
