On Purple Beauty( Flower) challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

JeanPierre Martel: This challenge is a joke.

How come deep violet, violet, mostly pink and blue flowers got to the top spot in this "Purple Beauty" contest.

I've reported entries that violate obviously the rules on this contest since the beginning of the period in which entries could be accepted. In vain.

Call me a bad looser but I think DPReview discredits itself with incompetent colour-blind Challenge host who don't do their job properly.

"...to the top spots" (plurial missing)

I was sure that this shot would have won the first or second place in this Challenge.

This shot speaks, tells simultaneously different stories of different poople. It's an extraordinary short. Congratulation.

On B/W Adult Male Portrait - NO Canon or Nikon equipment challenge (2 comments in total)

Why most entries are so pixilated?

I've withdraw from this challenge because the uploaded image was too much different from the original. As if the uploaded image was resampled to a lower resolution one.

I don't understand why nobody has given a 5 stars to that picture; it deserves it. Absolutely.

On Helios: Swirl Bokeh challenge (14 comments in total)

Would it be possible to increase the maximum number of entries par user to _2_ (rather than one) and the maximum number of entries to 100 ?

The photos taken with these lenses are so special and unique that it's quite hard to select just one photo as the representative of what we can do with them.

"Let's see your best landscape using..."

Is it a challenge about Macro shots: Insects , Ants Bugs, or Spiders. Or is it a challenge about lansdcape photography ?

rallyfan: Great image, terrific moment to capture!

Since we see a competition between friends., "Relaxed suspense", would certainly summarizes the feeling that we get from that picture. So I agree with you.

Being a very bad chess player myself, I didn't wait until the end of the game and so, didn't play against the winner.

Thanks again.

In reply to:

rallyfan: Great image, terrific moment to capture!

I was walking in along a street in the Centro district in Habana when these guys were playing chess. When I was close enough, I’ve slow down a bit and took this picture.

What piece the player is about to move ? Is it a decisive moment ? Probably not. But the picture gives the impression of suspense. As if that move was very important.

During post-processing, my goal was to make every player to stand out against its own background. That was a challenge for the guy in the center of the image.

That being said, thanks for your appreciation.

Extraordinary!

Congratulations.

Very interesting. Intimacy (the theme of the challenge) not seen in a sexual context, but as two people sharing exactly the same experience.

Beautiful photo. Congratulations.

On Lillypads- Infrared with Fishes_0295 in the The Lotus Pond challenge (2 comments in total)

What's extraordinary in your photo is that thick lotus leaves are transparent to UV rays. From my limited experience, I've never seen that phenomenon in other plants.

On Beauty is in the eye of the beholder in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

The Challenge rules say full EXIF. When I've entered the Aperture (0,95) manually on the Entry Form, that info was stripped and doesn't show above. I hope the entry is still valid.

On In the Fortaleza de San Carlo de la Cabaña in the The Cannons challenge (2 comments in total)

Yes, it's an infrared shot (taken with a 720 nm converted camera). This shot was taken from a slideshow about Havana, published on YouTube:

Thanks for your comment (and I presume) your vote. ;-)

This decorated ring was used to pull the door to close it. Consequently, this is not a door knocker, nor a door lock.

On Motion Blur challenge (2 comments in total)

If the subject is still but the blur is caused by movement of the camera, is it considered as a motion blur ? Or must the subject be in movement ?

On B&W Landscape challenge (2 comments in total)

Since digital B&W cameras are rare, do you accept colour photos transformed into B&W? Similarly, do you accept infrared photos transformed into B&W?
