On Dirty Thoughts in the Canon EOS XD Series challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

cjf2: Thank you. I thought it showed off the good points of the camera's sensor for this challenge. The grime of the locomotive and crew and the dull subtle lighting was what made it for me. Did you like the title. I was rather pleased with it!

No they got on fine, it was just a split second they looked like that. They had been up really early to prepare the locomotive and were waiting to get going again after a lunch break.

On That Was Close in the Kids at amusement parks challenge (1 comment in total)

Wow that's a great picture. I like combinations of flash and movement and that is a classic of the technique. I suppose the adult is a major part of the picture which is maybe not right for this challenge, otherwise I can't see why it did not win.Sorry but I did not vote on this challenge or it would have got a 5 from me. Hopefully it will fit another challenge in the future and win.

On The Wye Valley from Symonds Yat Rock in the 'How Green Was My Valley' challenge (2 comments in total)

Great view. I thought this would place much higher. I've just noticed it is a panorama. I thought I'd been there and not seen such a view! Well done that's the best use I've seen of a panorama.

On Green of Nepal in the 'How Green Was My Valley' challenge (1 comment in total)

I really liked this picture. Maybe there is too little to show it is a valley for this challenge but great shot for another challenge. Well done.

On Caparezza live @ Koko, London 12/10/2014 in the Stage lights challenge (1 comment in total)

Great photo. Might place better in another challenge as it is more about the performer than the lights.I think I'd crop tight up to the elbow to remove the lighting gantry in the top right that competes for attention

On Carew Castle in the Fortress challenge (2 comments in total)

What a great picture. Good subject, perfect for the theme and great processing. By far my favourite in this challenge. The birds make it. Maybe there'll be another challenge you can enter it in when hopefully it will be placed higher.

The Mick: Woo-wooh! Nicely done.
Cheers,
Mick

Thanks Mick. The weather was pretty dull this day but the locomotive and train were a good combination for a railway enthusiast.

On Y is for Yamaha in the A To Z - Letter Y challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks, Mick. With short circuit motor cycle racing you get a lot of chances as the motorbikes go passed for 16 laps or so and several races in a day. Eventually one of them had to be right! I liked the exhaust to.

On 20140812-_m1b8272 in the Four Thirds Sensor Challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

Lovely lighting making a great picture. I'm surprised it did not place higher. That is the problem with open subject challenges. Hopefully you can enter it in a fountain challenge in the future.

On White Lined Sphinx Moth in the A To Z - Letter W challenge (3 comments in total)

Brilliant picture. Maybe it didn't say "W" to the low vote people. I'd try it again in a moth challenge as it certainly deserves to win something.

Thanks both. I'm pleased you liked it. I must admit I didn't think it would win but I'm trying to get an entry in every one of the A-Z challenges.

On WRC World Rally Championship in the Extreme sports photography challenge (7 comments in total)

I've been away and come back to find this has won which is great. I'm glad you liked it as much as I did. I don't think I can make it to the rally stage on which this was taken, which is a shame.
