Old Greenlander: This light is stunning!
High class, that is!

That is an absolutely stunning shot ! I learnt she comes from tiny Victoria Bay just up the coast from here in Cape Town. Rated 9th in the world I see. (My photo taken near here came 7th). Well done ! Best wishes Mike

The poise of the boat in this image is amazing, live action, in anticipation of dropping down into the next swell ! A dramatic picture ! (Regardless of the fact that I see you do create these images). Fantastic !

On challenge A flower (21 comments in total)

There are about 8 entries that are of only part of a flower. You can see most other entries were careful to see that the whole flower was depicted. The rules say that parts of flowers will be disqualified. If they were, then 8 others would be able to enter.

Buzz Lightyear: I guess as host you can establish any rules you want, but it just seems strange that super-zoom fixed lens cameras would be excluded. You feel like explaining why?

You did not say why. You've seen how good they are or what ?

I see there are swimmers in the pool. Looking close up you can see what a lovely clear photograph it is. Regards Zooker

When I enter a challenge I always participate and score all the entries. The entry limit was only 35 I think when this challenge started. 200 images is too many to score. Sorry, I too am withdrawing.

On photo Which way is up? in the Reflections challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mountainshots: Beautifully crafted fake reflection. Problem is, it defies the linear properties of reflection. But well done.

Linear properties of reflection ? The reflection looks correct to me. A reflection will not be a symetrical image but in this instance it will be a view from lower down from the water surface. That is why the top of the mast on the right in the reflection sits in a vertically shifted backdrop. Also on the left there is no reflection of the car park. Perfectly correct. From the advantage point of the camera you can see over the bank onto the carpark, but from the water surface you cannot see over the bank into the car park. Beautiful photo map1273 !

Hi Anis !

You say only natural light, but I see entries with artificial light ?

Just as you posted your entry, South African champion bodyboarder was tragically killed by a shark in sight of your photograh.

At 12h41 on Thursday, 19th April, NSRI Gordon’s Bay volunteer sea rescue duty crew were activated following reports of a man bitten by a shark .....
