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.

On photo Green Iguana in the Green challenge (4 comments in total)

I never know what I'll get for entries in a color challenge. This one was a worthy win. I love it for many reasons. It reminds me of a pet Iguana I has 40 years ago :)
And a win with the trusty FZ200 too! Congratulations & well done!

I really like this one. I think it's the almost painting-like feel you captured. Very nice runner up.

In reply to:

Aguilar: When shopping this category a few years ago, I liked both the X100S and RX1; to find my value point, I bought a used RX1 and have been thrilled with the results and portability - it's so easy to carry around. The RX1 is amazing, and I love 35mm.
Battery life: 1. You'll get more than 36 shots per charge ;) if you're the "spray and pray" type, this camera isn't for you anyway. 2. Carry a couple spares - they're tiny, and it only takes 10 seconds to change one.

I feel the same way about my Q. Quality and portability (along with trying out the Leica experience) in a full frame were what I was after.
