On Bloodthirsty Siren in the Halloween challenge (4 comments in total)

you almost had my vote too Dez except something was wrong with my profile. Glad to see you did so well. NYC has some awesome dressed up folks for Halloween and this year looks like it was no different.
Kudos.

I loved your photo . It is perfect...depth of field, tracks, wood, and then some tiny seedling challenging all that metal and wood.
Cheers

On Software Technique: Creating and Adding Textures article (80 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lee Jay: I always work to avoid exactly that look.

Great article Ellen ...exactly what I have been looking for to enhance some old houses that I want to print...The blurs/textures will do nicely to help with some modern things encroaching in the scenes...much better than a vignette in this case.
Thank you

This was a very unhelpful review of this book.

Thank you so much for such an informative article with absolutely stunning shots. Not only was the article great for capture of Aurora shots but for me it contained some very valuable info on cold weather photography. Judging by the winter weather predictions for this year for where I live that info will be vital. It will be either stay inside and keep your camera equipment and self warm or get out and catch some great cold weather shots.

On Great Wall in the Countries and the landmarks they are known for? challenge (4 comments in total)

Magical picture of an amazing place. You have managed a great capture of a landmark without loads of people.... what a feat!!
I was there 1982 and it makes me sad to see such pollution in the air now.

In reply to:

Joe Pineapples: Far too many entries! To do a decent job of voting on such a large set of photographs would take hours. Surely it would be more sensible to limit the number of entries, and then run the challenge again in a few weeks time?

I agree there were too many entries. In order to give a fair chance to all and vote fairly took at least several hours.
