On TRIPOD in the Objects 100 years old or older challenge (1 comment in total)

Though it may seem that Gitzo tripods have been around forever; indeed, the company itself was founded in 1917. The tripod shown is, at best, 60 years old - the very first Gitzo tripod was not introduced until early in the 1950s.

Will you accept motorcycles, too?

On Old&Forgotten Toys challenge (2 comments in total)

Generally, is it acceptable to enter the same picture in two challenges at the same time? Specifically, I entered a picture in the challenge "Toys in the city;" it would,I think, fit this challenge as well. What do you think?

An inverted steam shovel bucket

The subject is an abstract pattern in the peeling paint concentrating on the curl. I know the subject is not as obvious as a person, bird, or building; it was not the wheelhouse of the boat, but rather this pattern.

On GREEN... in the Discussion challenge: Off Centered Subject challenge (11 comments in total)

If the title indicates the subject, then the the subject is clearly not off center. In fact, one could say the windows are only interruptions in a subject that occupies the full frame. It is like taking a picture of a single hot air balloon overhead and using the title"Cloudless Sky."

I think you have improved the color and texture of this photo. I might try to crop above the bottom shadow and bring the top down as well making it landscape format. I think it may emphasize the curl a little more.

This is such a clever composition. All parts of the image have such interesting textures and patterns--I would not have thought of it as 'negative space.'

If you have any "wider" shots, I'd love to see how this looks if rotated a bit--so that the main line+peel were at a bit of an angle. (Your current composition might actually look better; I'd just like to play with different angles, to see what has the most visual interest.

Wood is always a interesting subject to me. In this shot I like to see more texture, for some reason it looks "flat" to me. Also shadows on right are taking my attention away.

Fun experiment and use of subject. Taking a risk like this, with the shadows and the line, can sometimes lead to a blah shot but not here. I have to say the shadow of the cam in the lower left (I think that is what it is) does undermine the overall weight and impact a little bit. Good image.

In reply to:

Ben Herrmann: CAUTION: Be very careful - I just did the firmware update for the Nikon P7700, and now, 3rd party batteries no longer work. The camera will not respond to any of the 3rd party models that I have - including the Wasabi's that are superior. Once you turn off the camera (after firmware update), it will not start up again with a 3rd party battery (at least in my case). But it will function just fine with Nikon batteries. Way to go Nikon!!!! You Tu_ds....another way for you to make an extra buck now having to buy your batteries exclusively.

I just did the firmware update on my D5100; the only non-Nikon battery I have seems to work fine thus far (Power 2000 from B&H).

On Topography of wood decay in the Beautiful Textures challenge (7 comments in total)

Thanks for the votes and the kind comments. This is the top of a wood dock piling at the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs Florida. I was walking past and glanced over; I was immediately struck by the pattern and texture.

Are you including goods for sale or just services?

On 100_0794 (2) in the Galveston, Texas challenge (3 comments in total)

I don't see how a track more than 300 miles away has any real connection with Galveston. Also, unless time travel is real, how was it entered five days before being taken?

On Prime Lens - Focal Length Equal Human Eye 1/2 challenge (7 comments in total)

Given that you ask for "full EXIF," does that preclude film cameras where the negative or transparency has been scanned? Also, when you specify no macros, does that include images where a 55mm Macro lens has been used as a 'normal' lens?

On Move Me in the What Is This? – III. challenge (17 comments in total)

Thanks for the guesses and votes. This is part of a no-hub pipe coupling. The coupling consists of a rubber sleeve surrounded by a corrugated metal sleeve which has two metal worm gear clamps attached to the metal sleeve by means of metal rivets as seen in the picture. The slot through which the rivet passes allows the rivet to move when the clamps are tightened. I got these as an experiment in order to attach a Raynox close up lens to a lens without threads. This picture was taken using a Raynox DCR-250 attached to a Lumix TZ3 with one such device. The slot is about 1/8th inch wide.

To provide a sense of scale, the hole in the center of the circle is about 1/16th of n inch in diameter.

I think the color is influencing thoughts of the material involved. It is not leather; the color is only a reflection of the environment in which the picture was taken. Though I admit the color is one of the things I liked most when I took the picture.

Good guesses all; you probably would not be using this around electricity, though.

Liamvasik is close in concept but with some critical points missing.
