On photo Cruciform in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a really beautiful capture of a very elegant dragonfly, anisah, and it deserves to be in the top places in this weekly challenge. Great colours, and wonderful details, against a soft bokeh green background.

On photo Night Storm in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Congratulations, Mohammed Al Ali, on placing third in this weekly challenge, with your Night Storm entry. It's very dramatic, and stark, with the whole landscape silhouetted against the pink shades of the clear sky, and the impact of the lightning strikes.

On photo Red Shoulder Hawk in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Such amazing plumage on this red shoulder hawk, so alert, so magnificent, so beautifully captured by you, Chuck_FL, and it deserves second place in this week's challenge. This is yet another amazing picture to display in your Bird Gallery.

On photo Evening Fireworks in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Congratulations, qhenson, on your excellent image of Bryce Canyon, which has earned you first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. You've succeeded in capturing the intricate details and colours of the canyon in very low light. We also see beyond the canyon to your amazing fireworks display, with the blue/pink cloudy sky offering us such interesting colours to balance the majesty of the whole scene.

On photo LOVE is all you need <3 in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Sorry to disqualify your Roses entry in 'My Best Photo of the Week' Challenge, but it is too large, at 4,190 X 2,848px to meet the 1,600 pixels size required for all my challenges. If photos are too large, computers with slower connections take too long to download them, and voters won't wait.

On photo Anyone knows what this little critter's name is? in the Interesting Insects challenge (2 comments in total)

This interesting little fellow looks like a very juvenile leaf insect in the Phylliidae family; probably only a few days old.
Google 'Leaf Insect' to see if it looks familiar.

On photo Waving Reed in the Blowing in the Wind (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, chrisby, on placing third in this challenge, with your interesting 'Waving Reeds' entry. I see not only reeds blowing in the wind in late afternoon light, but also what could be flames spreading along the ground, against the dark background. Great colours here.

I really like the simplicity of this picture, Kukla, and it has given you second place in this 'Blowing in the Wind' challenge. You've achieved a whimsical lightheartedness to the image, which I find very pleasing.

A wonderfully appropriate title for a wonderfully appropriate capture of a beautiful snowy egret! This really does deserve first place in the 'Blowing in the Wind' challenge, Lee8282.

On photo rsz_humming in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

What a lovely capture of a little hummingbird, PepeYepez, and it has earned you a well-deserved third spot in this weekly challenge. Because the hummingbird is unusually still, we are able to see every last detail in its beautiful plumage, and its alert watchfulness. A real beauty!

Congratulations, MarioSS, on second place in this week's challenge with your amazing capture of the Andromeda Galaxy. We've watched your entries of astrophotography over several months now, and you've shown us that with practice your pictures have improved remarkably. How small we are, how vast the universe!

Congratulations, agalloch28, on placing second in the 'Water Colours' challenge, with your gentle ripples of water, forming a beautiful colour palette. Three distinct colour bands, each having a wide variety of hues and tones there for us to enjoy.

On photo Autumn reflection in the Water Colours (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Rajeshb, on first place in this 'Water Colours' Challenge, with your Autumn reflection entry. This was popular with the voters, even though it is somewhat too vivid and over-saturated for my liking, and I wonder if traditional watercolour painters would have chosen this bright colour palette.

On photo Harmony in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

What a beautiful and peaceful composition, Moon0326, and it deserves a top place in this week's challenge. You've captured the magnificence of the Milky Way with its amazing colour palette, while you have grounded us, helping us to realise how very small we are, just by placing the lone tree in the foreground. Another great picture for your wall.

On photo Estrellita in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

Congratulations, PepeYepez, on placing second in this week's challenge, with your delightful capture of this small hummingbird. The colours are bright, the bird's plumage is sharp except where there is obvious speedy movement in the wings, and we are in no doubt about the little bird's alertness, which you have captured beautifully. A true star in every sense.

On photo Science in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

Congratulations, man4mopar, on your magnificent image in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge, which has won first place here, and deservedly so. If I had been told that this view was captured from another planet somewhere out there in the solar system, I'd have believed it. The colours are quite ethereal, and gives the whole picture a surreal atmosphere. This is another superb entry from your gallery in the cold, bleak Antarctica. We thank you.
RuthC :-)
