On photo Cable Beach Camels in the Sea And Sun challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

mrsfixit: Great shot. I'd love to hear the story behind it. Camels aren't something one sees very often...
Camels traipsing the desert sands, but a camel caravan on a beach at sunset- now that's interesting!
Nice work! :-)

Wow- of all the places I thought this would have been taken- Australia has to be pretty far down on that list! lol I knew there were wild camels in the outback, but brilliant idea to use them as a tourist attraction like this.
Thanks for the story! I wish Oz wasn't such a loooooong plane ride, seems like an interesting country to visit. And I bet the people are friendly, too! :-)
Thank you! :-)

On photo Steamed bread in the Our Daily Bread challenge (8 comments in total)

Awesome shot. B&W was a perfect choice.

The composition is excellent. I like how the shot tells the story of the subject- the hands that create it, the bread itself in the process of creation, the steam rising from it as it's turned from flour and water into something delicious and life sustaining.

There is no extraneous detail in your picture, only the things that tell the story. :-)

I like your written explanation as well. I love to experience aspects of cultures that are foreign to me, as do many others here.

And yes, I want to eat some of that. If it's anything like the texture of pork buns I could eat that whole batch. Man, I love those things!

Thank you for sharing this, good job! :-)

On photo Liberty in the Through the window challenge (6 comments in total)

I really like this shot. Yes, you can see it's staged, but that doesn't take away from it's visual impact. Reminds me of an advertising shot, but that's not a negative, as many advertising shots are stunning.

It's got a sense of mystery, as you see the man only from the back, looking into the distance. I wonder what he's looking at, and what he's thinking...

Or maybe I just have a vivid imagination and read too much into things... lol

Good job! :-)

In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: Where is the Coolpix A replacement? Why is Nikon is still playing with small sensor cameras?

What about the performance difference between 1/1.7" and 1"?
I really want to replace my aged Canon Powershot g11, and am looking for something that I can carry with me in my (large) purse, and that is decent in low light.
The G11 is unusable at anything over ISO 400.

In reply to:

mrsfixit: I was there a couple of weeks ago, and boy, my shots of Citi Field don't look anything like yours! lol
Super shot, I love it! :-)

Darn right, let's go Mets!
Some day, when I finally get a decent camera and upgrade from my crappy P&S- I may ask you how you took that incredible shot. The DR is just unbelievable.
In the meantime, please keep taking shots like that and sharing them because I love looking at them.
You inspire me! :-)

On photo Morning Hawks in the Coffee Shops challenge (14 comments in total)

I LOVE this picture!!!
Nighthawks at the Diner is my favorite painting, from my favorite artist- Edward Hopper.
You have done that painting justice, and I think Hopper himself would approve. :-)
Great job!

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1571 comments in total)
In reply to:

mrsfixit: Tempting, but I wouldn't spend a grand on this. It's still a (relatively) small sensor compact.
$500-600, maybe, but no more. It's overpriced.
I'd go for a mirrorless instead. Bigger sensor, better IQ, more DR, more versatile.
So, I guess that means I'm still looking for something to replace my aged Canon G11, but this ain't it...

"when you bought the G11 you got jipped that couldnt do ISO 640 even"

Tell me something I *don't* know... lol
I bought the G11 when it first came out. It was ok for what it was. But you're right- anything over ISO 400 is not very good.
Hence the reason I'm looking to step up to something better, with a bigger sensor... it's time...

On photo Inside a Maple tree in the 2015 - Seasons of Spring or Autumn. challenge (5 comments in total)

I love this shot!
It's got an ethereal, almost magical quality to it. I would almost expect to see fairies flitting about amongst the branches and Puck peering out from amidst the leaves.
Good job. Well deserved win! :-)
