On photo White-throated Sparrow in the Sparrow - Crop the photograph as a Square challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

barb_s: Ed I have to say, this is the "Host's pick". I love the background. It sets off the subtle coloring on the bird so nicely. And now I know what a White-Throated Sparrow looks like, should I see one. Congratulations on a beautiful entry as runner up.

Thanks Barb. It was a cold morning when I shot this. The sparrow just sat there for over a minute while I got within ten feet.

Voters must not have looked closely at your entry. Amazing sharpness and an unusual bird. Should have finished higher.

Wow. This was in my top seven in this challenge. Nice sharp shot and fits the theme perfectly. I guess there were a lot of good entries in the voters minds.

On challenge It Looks So Close - 200mm or Greater (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

bolesautomotive: Actual focal length must be 200mm or greater. Sorry no conversions. Crop sensors are named so for a reason, it simply captures less of the field of view of a full frame sensor. This is not the same as a longer focal length image being captured. It simply a FF image missing 40% (or more) of the shot.

" it simply captures less of the field of view of a full frame sensor." But, with a full set of megapixels. You are technically correct, but in reality, there is little difference other than image noise. You still have to deal with similar camera/lens movement.

On challenge Blossoms blossoms everywhere (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bren Dyer: Please note. Blossoms refer to blossom trees...apples, peaches, cherries etc

If it's this technical, you need to provide a link to your definition. Maybe this would work:

On photo Bluejays ready for love in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

Thank you all for the nice comments :)

Of course it was a lucky shot. I was photographing the jay in the back and the other one flew into the frame ending up in focus also - how lucky is that?

The Redbud has faded now, so there won't be anymore more new shots with it's blooms available :(
