On photo Grand Fun in the Best picture of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

As host, I look at the images with a different eye and I wanted to comment here - This is just lovely. 4th place in a challenge with no real theme is very good. I just loved the lighting you used here. This one is great. Thanks for entering!

I've been away for a vacation... I love macro, and love this one in particular because of the difficulty of capturing these guys in flight. What a great image and congratulations on the win!

On challenge Crows, blackbirds or Ravens (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

T bird: Judging by the entires I don't understand the rules. Does the bird need to simply be blacken color or does it need to actually be of the crow, blackbird or raven species? I have shots of various different colors of crows and black birds conversely many shots of birds that are blacken color but aren't crows blackbirds or ravens.

I would expect Blackbirds, but in my description, I did refer to "black birds" and so black colored birds can be entered.

I feel like this is such an eye catcher and well worth viewing at full size. It's a beauty!

I've been chasing the Snowy Egrets here too! I love the IQ of this. You really managed to capture the right moment and perfect focus.

Mine have been at coastal Massachusetts. May I ask where this was taken?

Nice shot Mario! Congratulations on the win! I know this is not a global comment, but your photo is quite timely, as the eclipse passed in the states today.

cheers,

On challenge A Big Year - birds (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wildbegonia: No crows? Crows are found in any country, natural and urban environment. Very intelligent birds (although intelligence here could be dificult to photograph @_@ ) Their caws are the most common sound used in commertial media like TV too. We had hundreds and hundreds of challenges all about birds....but not one crow. Yes, they are very difficult to photograph too, maybe that is the challenge.

I'll do a crow challenge :)

In reply to:

Flor Tempra: The host missed to include the capture date rule so I assume that it should be taken on or after the announcement date which is July 30, 2017.
Cheers:-)

That is correct. Just about everyone figured it out so the challenge still works.

In reply to:

Jorginho: The challenge says No Restrictionson the capture date rules. Yet you say be honest about the date it was captured. If there is not restriction, why should anyone worry? or in other words: what is the latest capture date? THX!

My mistake. I usually do not use the capture date so I missed it in setup. Next week's "picture of the week is set up with the check on"

I'm sorry, I didn't get the capture date in place for this. I can't change it in the system now. Very sorry folks.

On challenge Safari animals (2 comments in total)

I enjoyed reviewing all of the photo's in this challenge. The locations and comments really made this slide show come alive for me.
To me, this is a remarkable collection. Some made me giggle, some cause an audible "Wow!!" , and each one added something to the story.

Thank you all for the contributions.

Much enjoyed! , Your host, Barb

On challenge Best Photo of the Week (3 comments in total)

FYI - the announce date says the 17th but entering allows the 15th so I'm going with the date DPR stated when entering the challenge.
I am checking the exif data and not allowing any pictures that have removed exif, or changed the date while exif says differently.
Thanks,

In reply to:

flbrit: This is a top shot and it proves the voting system is broken. 7 people gave it 3.5. Shame on them. (and I looked at the other submissions).

While I don't tend to scrutinize votes, I can tell you a few of the voters who voted a 3 here gave nothing higher. A few gave 4 as their highest score. That says they liked it a lot, but their voting range is not .5 to 5.
