John Spurs: In England we would call a widget a "thingamabob". My kitchen has half a dozen such items bought on a whim and now gathering dust,

Well then, I hope to see a kitchen entry all cleaned up :)

I love it. (I'm originally from Long Island and didn't think the ambient light would allow this to happen). A worthy winner! Congratulations!

On photo Boatman of Amarapura in the Rowboat challenge (4 comments in total)

When I saw this photo in the submission stage, I just said to myself, "Myanmar - I have to get there some day." When I pick a single word for a challenge idea , I never know what I will see, but beauty like this, framed so well, makes hosting worthwhile. Anyway, congratulations on the win for this challenge!

On challenge A Still Life - crop the image to a square (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

pleytime: Noticed a couple of images not squared.

I have been debating removing a number of entries that do not meet a traditional meaning of 'still life". I left many in that don't fit that definition, but in future challenges I will define the meaning/requirement further. I did remove the non square photos. thank you for that reminder.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Metal sculpture (maybe polished brass?); about 4-5 meters high; installed in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Francisco. I took this picture from a overhanging balcony on the 6th floor.

Thanks for the info because I was about to ask the size. This is much larger than I guessed. (And it is one of my favorites in this challenge too)

On photo White-throated Sparrow in the Sparrow - Crop the photograph as a Square challenge (2 comments in total)

Ed I have to say, this is the "Host's pick". I love the background. It sets off the subtle coloring on the bird so nicely. And now I know what a White-Throated Sparrow looks like, should I see one. Congratulations on a beautiful entry as runner up.
