SteB: It would be great if someone could translate John Hallmen's children's books from Swedish to English.http://agency.rabensjogren.se/authors-illustrators/Alphabetically/H/John-Hallmen/
John is one of if not the most talented macro photographer I know of. Please check out his work.http://www.johnhallmen.se/https://www.flickr.com/photos/johnhallmen/
Thanks for the link - this is truly spectacular macro photography!!
Michael Piziak: Congrats on the excellent pic and also for placing first in my challenge!
thanks ... making good use of paper clips
RuthC: Congratulations, Wilfried HKG, on first place in 'A Movie Title, with a Twist of Nature' challenge. This delightful entry made me laugh as soon as I saw it, since it meets the humorous theme of the challenge superbly. It is a great picture of a small monkey, with wonderful details and textures in its face, hairy body, and particularly in its left foot. Ruth :-)
Thanks, Ruth, and the movie wasn't bad, either.I was amazed how big the monkey's foot is relative to its head.
RUcrAZ: Congratulations on a great idea and a first-class execution! Very impressive talent!
thanks for your kind words
pwmoree: congrats, well done!
... and only with a wooden camera. Don't try to cheat, I WILL KNOW!
The numbers are a little bit off; a half-pixel shift is not 0.0002mm, but 0.002mm (= 2µm). Also, the tolerance should read ±0.001mm (= 1µm).
thanks ... and just in time for Valentine's Day
yes, your picture shows the same kind of flower
Dlync: Great image and concept.
thankslit from behind with a hand-held torch
MrTaikitso: Want! Finally, a reason to sell my otherwise excellent Samsung EX2F. (Don't laugh, best camera they ever made.) A mix of flip forward screen (good for video not just selfies), pop up VF and the improved lens makes this Sony a dream camera for us street photographers. So hate composing on a screen, not as intimate as a VF. Way to go Sony, and way to improve your still hurting bottom line.
Same here - I also love the EX2F, which is my everyday camera, and I also carry an RX100 (mainly for low-light and for more reach). If the RX100 III had a fully articulated LCD it would be perfect.I will get one.
yes - I think so
DUSTY LENS: Is this the last thing we see when we leave this world ?
That is the last thing the camera sees when a new model comes out.
beautiful, like a painting
Wildbegonia: Like it
thanks - my wife already warned that I will make last place for sending in "trash"
I liked this one the most
William Woodruff: Congratulations Wifred, you are the actual winner of this challenge! The first three submissions were all made by the same person, and they scored higher than you because that person entered numerous fraudulent votes. Your photo placed highest among the honest entries. So, again, congratulations, sorry you got cheated out of the official win that you deserved.
Thanks for your kind words.Yeah, the second image also has more then "a flower", which I interpret as one single flower, and should have been DQ'ed.However, I must say I do like the winning picture.
Wildbegonia: Nice and cleaver.
