  • Commented on challenge Fabulous closed toed heels!

    Do you mean 'closed toe heels'? I'm not sure what 'close toed heels' are. Then again I'm not a fashionista, so maybe it's a new style for men. :-)

  • Many voters did not appreciate your excellent capture of Thailand's electricity power supply in Ayutthaya, though I certainly did. I've visited Thailand, and lived in other Asian countries where...

  • Commented on photo Osprey and trout in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Another great catch by you, Rick Moran, this time a third place, and another catch for the osprey. The hapless trout appears to be remonstrating with its captor, to no avail. Great details in the...

  • Commented on photo Frigid in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    This is a fabulous picture, bprice21, and it has been appreciated by many in this weekly challenge, giving you second place. There is a monochrome bleakness in the image, broken only by the yellow...

  • Commented on photo Kestrel in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, Lance B, on your well-deserved win in 'My Best Photo of the Week', with your awesome capture of a kestrel, soaring above against a dappled blue sky. The subject is wonderfully...

  • Commented on photo Camouflaged Brown Recluse in the Brief Encounter (Nature) challenge

    I had disqualified this entry because I could see only one insect, then discovered a very camouflaged spider just below the mason? bee.
    The entry has been reinstated.

  • Commented on challenge For creative newbies only..

    What a farce! Nearly twenty (20) of the entries in this 'For Creative Newbies Only' challenge are from people who have been DPR members for a number of years. This includes four in the top ten...

  • As well as the three hoverflies, I counted a native bee, and nine small beetles! That is a very welcome flower! :-)

  • Commented on photo Kim van der Linden in the Creative Portraits challenge

    'Images must be shot after the announcement date of the challenge.'
    This picture was NOT taken on 25th November, 2016, but on 13th November, 2016.
    You have cheated on the capture date! :-(

  • Commented on photo Backpacker in the Creative Portraits challenge

    'Images must be shot after the announcement date of the challenge.'
    This picture was NOT taken on 1st December, 2016, but on 4th June, 2015. You have cheated on the capture date! :-(

  • You're right, 909 pages of them! T bird, if you can't get a few ideas from all of those, then you'll have to invent your own. ;-) RuthC :-)
  • Hi T bird, If you look at your main Challenge Page, above the recent challenge winning entries it says: 'More'. Click on that and you will be able to browse through the hundreds of recent and not ...
  • Commented on photo lake heronRS in the Shades of Blue in Nature challenge

  • Commented on photo Bonsai Blue in the Shades of Blue in Nature challenge

    This picture is well-named, ssullivan28, and it deserves second place in this 'Shades of Blue 'challenge. You've achieved very cold blue tones here, with your slow shutter speed and the low light...

  • Commented on photo Follow me home in the Shades of Blue in Nature challenge

    Congratulations, eaa, on your excellent icy blue image in the 'Shades of Blue in Nature' which has earned you first place in this challenge. These ice 'sculptures' in the Norwegian Mountains are...

  • Commented on photo End of Time in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Now, that's a STORM, Derrick Louw, and it has given you a well-deserved third place in this weekly challenge. The panorama format suits the subject really well, so we can appreciate the enormity...

  • Commented on photo Afternoon Fishing in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    This is a beautiful picture of an egret hard at work, catching a meal, Philip Lanoue, and a well-deserved second place in this week's challenge. The bright white plumage of this graceful bird is...
