In reply to:

lost_in_utah: I read through ALL of the comments. I think an intelligence test should be mandatory before a person is allowed to post on an online forum. The comments by some make me cry due to the extreme ignorance exhibited.

Maybe some didn't score top marks on the test, but at least they didn't get lost in utah !

Thanks Ruth,
Glad you liked it!
I'm going to Sweden for this year's vacation, not quite as far north as Norway, but I hope to find some more good photo opportunities there too :-)

On Polar lights, seen from M/S Nordnorge in the Norway challenge (1 comment in total)

Great shot. Would love to see those lights.
We also travelled on the Nordnorge during our holiday in Norway. Great ship.
There were unfortunately no polar lights in the middle of summer for us, we had instead 24 hours of light and the midnight sun. Norway has lots to offer all year round :-)

On Scientists demonstrate 'paint-on' batteries article (108 comments in total)

Lithium ion batteries have a very high energy density meaning a lots of power in a small space.
There is some danger that if the battery gets mechanically damaged and short circuited then, it can catch fire.
To combat this the battery is often placed in a hard plastic shell; the actual battery inside is quite soft.
If these new painted surface are in anyway exposed outside and damaged then maybe, in the worst case the whole camera goes up in flames :-(

On spider_0351 in the Spiders challenge (5 comments in total)

Fantastic photo. The colours are great! Well done!
You might be interested to see how these colours are formed,...
Some time ago I started a thread with a discussion on this.
Finally, we found a retired Physics professor from Hannover who had a “web” site dedicated to this.

On Moon Dance in the Into the Night challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

santamonica812: Where did you take the moon shot. I'm so jealous . . . I'll never see the moon so clearly from anywhere in my (light-polluted) city.

Thanks for all the votes, It is a good feeling to get first place :-)

The moon shot was taken in 2009 from my balcony with a Skywatcher 1000mm reflector telescope. I live in Austria about 3 km away from the next town, there is some light pollution but it is OK for viewing most night sky objects. It would be much better to drive up the mountains.
The shot of my son was taken in Norway and simply superimposed to make one image.

Here is a thread I posted 2 months ago about this image with some more info.

Mwcfire: HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)

Pretty much the standard for television connectivity.

Hi Babart,
At the end of your post you wrote "BAB" is that another acronym?
What does it stand for, can you explain yourself please.
Thanks

On 10 Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Photographers article (41 comments in total)

Order a lens mug and a real lens.
Then put the lens mug in the real lens box and return it for a full refund.
Sounds silly ?
Read the unfortunate experience here!
