Beautiful shot. I thought your Kite Flier should have won too. You have a lot of nice entries. Keep up the nice work!

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."

On photo Tricolor Heron Closeup in the Low Light: Wild Animals challenge (4 comments in total)

Fits the theme perfectly and is simply a haunting shot Justin. For general purposes, you might brighten it up just a little, but not for this challenge. Shows the strength of the A-550 too at ISO-1600 with all that detail. Great shootin!

Yes, a very nice shot. However, the rules say "No silhouettes."

On photo Epicycles in the Hanging Bikes challenge (10 comments in total)

I think they are likely hung vertically, but it's not real clear from the photo. Nice shot regardless.

Those eyes are to die for! One of my three favorites in the challenge. Not a real high finish, but a good showing regardless.

This was one of my three favorites Steve. You don't see light like that very often where I come from.

On photo Harry Winston Jerome (1940-1982). SEVEN WORLD RECORDS in the Productivity challenge (8 comments in total)

I have no problem making the connection to the theme. Now, if I didn't read the title, it would be different, but the title is visible in the slideshow voting. Regardless, it's a good shot and, IMO, not deserving of anywhere near last place.

Welcome to the last place club ;-)

Here's something else you are likely not aware of. If you calculate the straight average of the votes, you didn't finish last! Your average rank is 1.300. The next to last place's average is 1.136. So, it really wasn't even close. The final ranking is a result of dpreview's algorithm which adjusts the rankings. IMO, it really screws things up at the extremes - like in your case. Maybe they can explain, but don't count on it.

On photo Parrot feeding in the Audubon's Birds challenge (8 comments in total)

I only gave it one star. In retrospect, maybe it should have been 1.5. But, the focus was on the foliage in front of the bird. With wildlife, it is best to focus on the eye. You might have to recompose, but it is generally important to attain focus on the eye. I also, thought the background was too busy - distracting. Otherwise, it is an interesting and colorful bird and the composition is good.

This shot has always done well in the challenges. I'm a little ashamed to have entered it again ;-)
