On photo Peeping Swallow in the Show us your Bokeh.... challenge (4 comments in total)

The swallow is a little soft, but since the bokeh is OK, I don't see a reason for all the low votes. Certainly should not have finished near the bottom :(

Keep trying!

On photo Cut Back in the Endless Summer challenge (3 comments in total)

Well, there's nothing that says the photographer has to be holding the camera. See:

http://www.goprocamera.com/

I also wondered about the shot until I read the caption and did a little looking around.

Been to Rome but only for a few days. However, I've bicycled across Italy twice. Perhaps, this scene is more common in Italy/Europe than the States, but still not common IMO.

Oh sure, I see a beautiful woman in an incredibly sexy pose drinking out of a spigot every day ;-)

Definitely fits the theme. You have a nice eye for the unusual. Congrats on the high finish. BTW, are those heals she's wearing??? If so, nice balance!

On photo CENTRAL AMERICAN INDIGO SNAKE in the Snakes challenge (1 comment in total)

a nicely lit & very sharp shot. IMO, it should have finished significantly higher. Nice use of DOF. Maybe the flash distracts, but it sure helps the sharpness.

my three favorites. And, a nice story. You might place higher if you submit larger images - maybe 12"x16"

On photo Drinking Buddies in the ***The Power of 3hree*** (Full Colour Only) challenge (5 comments in total)

isn't this HDR? Great shot & processing, but I only gave it 2-stars because I thought it was violating the rules - no HDR. If it isn't, what sort of processing is this? My apologies.

On photo Dancing at Dawn in the Low Light: Wild Animals challenge (3 comments in total)

but, the challenge is about "Low Light." Also, "No silhouettes." This image was shot at f18, 1/1250 second at ISO-250. Hardly "low light."
