One of my top picks.

On 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!

> wonderful shot really

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

On 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.

On Abby in the Participation: The One-Thousand Club challenge (2 comments in total)

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 DesertMobile in the Cropped to a 1x3 ratio challenge (3 comments in total)

not so hot, but it's definitely a cool shot. Takes me right back to Mad Max ;-)

On 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.

Joel Saltore would be proud of that shot. Nice shootin!

On 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 ;-)

On Dragonfly in the Participation: The Five-Hundred Club challenge (1 comment in total)

The only thing wrong with your shot is the focus. Work on that and you will do better.

On Cameleon in the Participation: The Five-Hundred Club challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice focus on the eye. IMO, should have finished much higher.

Beautiful in all respects. Congratulations.

On free spirit in the Participation: The Five-Hundred Club challenge (11 comments in total)

And, that's a beautiful shot - family treasure. IMO. you should have placed higher. For some reason, shots of kids don't do as well as they should.

Was this a studio shot, or a serendipitous candid?

On Sunset with altitude.. in the > Country roads tales challenge (5 comments in total)

I don't think challenge entrants really get their feet wet until they manage to grab the coveted "last place." Here's mine:

I suppose with two, your galoshes are completely full ;-)

Nothing really wrong with your shot, but IMO, the road wasn't the central focus.

Good luck in the future! You've certainly done well in some of the challenges and definitely have the right attitude.
