Just remember...You don't have to out run the bear. You just have to out run the guy next to you!

A great shot. It was really nice of the bear to hold still while you took the shot. Super.

This is a super shot. I would have been worried if the focal length said 100mm!

On Spirit of 9-11 in the Commitment challenge (1 comment in total)

LOL. I really don't care all that much but can someone tell me how a pic of turtles is in 23rd place for a contest where the rules are

Try to depict the virtue: “Commitment".

Interesting. While I don't expect the ACLU to state them there are reasonable limits also; which a photographer should understand. If I am in a public park and start photographing children, while totally legal, it is only reasonable to anticipate that some parent may take exception to having their kids photographed.

The same is true at some other public venues. If I decided I wanted to camp out and take lots of shots of a nuclear plant I would HOPE that someone would at least question why.

Lastly they do not address the commercial use of photographs of people which falls under different rules even if taken in a public place.

In short I think it is great for photographers to know what their Legal rights are. They should also understand that sometimes legitimate questions can and in fact should be asked and they should not be offended or surprised.

On little owl 106 in the Wild birds, no other restrictions challenge (5 comments in total)

I enter challenges for the fun of it because the "judging" is so absolutely horrid. I use to get upset about where I placed vs other shots. The voting comes down to I liked this picture. My favorite was one called Mammals. Somebody entered a shot of a bird and not only was it not disqualified the shot didn't even finish last in the voting.

So, with that said the difficulty in getting this level of clarity for a bird in flight, particularly an owl is considerable. Sure a lot is based on luck but you got the shot. All I can say is "you were robbed!"

On War in the Travel Photo (captions required) challenge (9 comments in total)

Just an outstanding shot of a beautiful little girl. I really loved the shot. I don't know who the 5 morons were that gave it a .5 but they should be baned from voting. This shot is as good as many I've seen on Time or Newsweek.

Great work.

One negative comment however. Since your on DPR you should have said "Made it back alive (just)" :-)

On Take the "A" train in the Adventure challenge (4 comments in total)

I've given up on how people vote on these. I think sometimes the gear heads vote for images only from their cameras. Doesn't matter as there isn't anything involved other than a little pride LOL. Bottom line is that was a wonderful shot and a very different view of the challenge topic. I loved the image.
