On challenge What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 (60 comments in total)

Thanks to everyone who commented on Curious Kitten. I was going to respond to the comments after the voting but it has now been disqualified as it appeared to the host "as 'point-and-shoot' that gives the impression that little thought went into taking it," so I guess I can't.
I can see that the features I like, the tight cropping, the processing (in particular the heavy grain on the background that I thought echoed the skin of the nose and the marks in the eyes) were not appreciated.

On challenge It Looks So Close - 200mm or Greater (10 comments in total)

Are you really intending to restrict this to pictures taken on zoom lenses or is it ok to use a fixed focal length (prime) lens of 200 MM. or more?

On photo foss in the Slow shutter speed challenge - Water challenge (1 comment in total)

This is brilliant. I love the composition and the B&W treatment. There was some tough competition in this challenge but it should have been in the top three. Keep it in mind for the future challenges as it deserves to win a challenge. I'm in the UK and I wonder if it is the River Foss in Yorkshire. Can you give an O.S. ref or describe the location as I'd love to see it?

Great photo of an interesting view. What is happening here? Is it water from multiple springs all flowing into a stream?

On photo obsidian flow in the Slow shutter speed challenge - Water challenge (4 comments in total)

Great location and photo. I really like the dark black and white processing. It was a challenge with many good entries so well done on your second place.

On photo Wandering in the Moonlight in the Slow shutter speed challenge - Water challenge (4 comments in total)

Wow yes that's brilliant. Never thought about a rainbow by moonlight. I see from your previous entries you've been there before but this darker picture is much more effective than your lighter similar shot.
It was a worthy winner in a challenge which had at least the first 15 composed of great pictures.

If you look back in your challenges from your profile page you'll be able to see the challenge subject. I remember the shot and I thought it fitted the challenge. I think I voted on it and scored it well. It was something about loneliness or animals in captivity I think.

I hadn't looked at the challenge so have only just seen it. This is a great photo for this theme.

On photo SMOKING METAL No2 in the Random Items - Challenge 8 challenge (2 comments in total)

I love this picture. There seems to be a lot of low votes on many entries so I suppose the random items mean different things to different people. But How could it possibly have placed so low?

Great shot. I don't think I've ever seen a water lilly shot from that angle before.

In reply to:

RuthC: What a beautiful picture, cjf2, and it has won you a well-deserved top place in 'The Wonder of Life' challenge. The birds are tack sharp, and their feathers are defined beautifully. Is this a case of supply and demand, or demand and supply? I smile each time I view this image, and I'm sure many others have enjoyed the wonderful interaction here.
Ruth :-)

Thanks, Ruth. There's a bit of flash in there to add a bit of sparkle. It is a shame that the bird species I got closest to was one that relies on it's call and not its plumage to attract a mate!

I guess you needed a drone!
Without a way of getting a higher viewpoint I think it would be best to forget the sky and roof. Either retake with camera angled down slightly or crop this to remove the roof and sky.

Congratulations on the win, Bill. Mind you I have no idea what the upper man is doing or why he is doing it!
