Sony DSC-S85 w/ CZ f2.0 – great macro lens
a 5-star photo! And, in case you didn't notice, it's the second highest average score ever recorded:
The exposure is done with flash, not shutter speed. The provided EXIF is probably correct - but not attached to the photo.--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
This is definitely a competition winner.
Excellent image. How did you achieve the bubbles - Ginger Ale?
Not sure why this didn't rank higher, but I suppose 25th isn't bad. One of my two favorites.
One of my two favorites. It's a rare catch to get two birds in focus - and, with such beautiful light.
Nice one! Congratulation!--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
The lighting gives it a very nostalgic look too.
What are the voters smokin?
Thanks. Sorry about not getting back. Your guess sounds very plausible. I took the shot in Sea Isle City NJ.
That is a haunting photo! I rarely dish out five stars, but this one fits the bill. I also see that it averaged over four stars. This never happens anymore in the challenges.
Congrats & great shooting!--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
Wow folks! Thanks for all the nice comments.
Caddie - Actually this shot was taken while still on the ground. Of course, I took a boatload of photos. The ones from in the balloon start with #70 here:

You have a very nice lens there. For pure sharpness across the frame, this was my pick. Maybe a tiny bit of fuzziness in the lower left corner, but I had a hard time finding it ;-) Congrats on a fine photo and a high finish.
Nice catch. You are correct - they both have the same EXIF :( So, according to the rules, at a minimum the entrant should have noted the addition.
It's very hard to catch three in focus, but you did it! Nice shooting.
I know how hard it is to catch three kits in focus. This is a great shot - one of my two favorites. You might try posting a little larger version. Nice shooting!
Apparently, no one looked closely :( Maybe post a little larger image next time.
it appears severely over sharpened. Back off on the sharpness setting in your camera. Excellent composition!
Nice shooting, regardless.
My favorite of the challenge - simplicity, beautiful colors and nice composition.
Perfect lighting and a real cutie!
