options are nice to have, but please keep the BLACK background as DEFAULT.

In reply to:

LeeBic: Way to many entries in this challenge

sort of agree. and i haven't started voting yet either. i think you can narrow down the field substantially if you follow the challenge suggestion and look for a lack of distracting elements.
i like to view all entries full size and it will take some time for sure.

On photo Arches NP in the Red Rocks challenge (1 comment in total)

love a.n.p. have camped and hiked quite a bit there so this looks familiar. i like your choice of location and framing but i'm put off a bit over your processing. the left side has too many obvious cloning patterns. otherwise a good entry for this challenge.

once upon a time....

once a year this sentinel of the goblins comes to life, stretches its wings and takes flight to survey its surroundings and ensure the safety of the goblins.

if you come on summer solstice, you just may catch a glimpse.

older om 50mm 1.4 on e620

tightening the aperture to 5.6 or 4 gets rid of halation on the subject and still isolates it from the other objects three inches nearer and three inches further.

using om 50mm 1.4. aprox 2 feet from camera.

besides very narrow dof, at 1.4 halation becomes almost unacceptable ( unless you could find a subject that benefits from the effect ).

congrats to jason w. (number nine). i met jason more than once while shooting storms and lightning in the daytona area. if there was an active storm around, he would be out there (and me too sometimes).

On photo Make Way For Ambulance! in the Old&Forgotten Toys challenge (3 comments in total)

this brought back some memories. i was unstoppable with a screwdriver and pliers when i was young. had to find out how anything worked. a lot of these had small friction motors. what i found fascinating was (on the few i opened up) the tin was actually recycled from commercial food or soup cans. tin cans at that time were mostly printed (like beer cans today) and didn't have paper labels so you might see campbells tomato soup or something similar printed in the inside of the car.
some great travel shots in your gallery. nice work.

well after first go through, cuteness factor and nostalgia are dominating my preferences. and then within those, presentation will have to win out.

On photo Happy Hour in the Food Photography challenge (6 comments in total)

great idyllic tropical scene!! the food may not be a big enough element of the photo to fit the 'mouth watering' mentioned in the challenge description. still a very appealing, well taken photo.

On photo Greenpiece in the Food Photography challenge (1 comment in total)

great shot!! on its own it isn't going to "make my mouth water" but will still garner high ranking from me for technical merit.

On article DPReview on CreativeLIVE (142 comments in total)

only caught about 15 minutes but well impressed by the effort. so much info to cover in little time. i agree with segaman that this type of live or recorded video forum would be a great way to review specific cameras, lenses, and gear. hands on live and fielding questions from members online.
(and who was that cute mute girl in the middle?)
