On photo In the safety of a rose bush in the Asleep (Nature) challenge (4 comments in total)

It truly looks asleep! I have some shots with the lid closed, but only when blinking. Nice catch and congrats on a high finish.

On photo Red Fox kit in the Asleep (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Ysal. A few days before this was taken when I discovered the occupied den, I nearly stepped on a kit sleeping at the entrance. They blend in perfectly with the leaves on the ground.

On photo Stymfalia lake in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

This was my favorite of the challenge. You have a couple of dust spots on your sensor, but regardless, a beautiful image. I am going to have to get this lens :)

Nice shootin!

In reply to:

MarioSS: Very nice composition.

Thanks Mario. Unfortunately, I was trying to edit on a tiny netbook without really understanding the software. Maybe this version (using Lightroom) would have done better:

Still not what I was hoping for, but clearly better.

An eye for an eye. I was one of the 3-star votes. Not sure why you didn't do better. A nice surfing shot IMO.

mike schm: Was this taken on hwy 1, between Gaviota and Jalama Road?

Yikes! Can't believe anyone commented ;-)

Yes, near the top of the climb. I suppose it's not your standard portrait, but for me - I was pleased. We were on a bike tour from San Luis Obispo to San Diego.

Thanks for the comment.

This was my favorite in the challenge. Why it didn't finish higher, I'll never understand.

How can one enter without digitizing a photo???? Of course, the entries are going to be digital photos.

On photo polar bear sniffing in the The Sense of Smell (Nature) challenge (4 comments in total)

Better fit to the theme than the winner, but perhaps not as humorous. A wonderful photo regardless. Congrats on 2nd place.

On challenge Blown out Background (13 comments in total)

Did you actually verify all your rules against each submission? Seems like a lot of unnecessary work and probably not even doable. I see some violations - even on some with blown out backgrounds.

upuaut: This image was taken 7 months from now! Cool

Hence, the blown highlights.

On photo Iran-Yazd in the An image challenge (10 comments in total)

Maybe the winner & voters thought it was "An Image - blown out highlights with very significant CA/PF."
