TinyTempo: They did not fix the auto-ISO? Bummer.

I don't worry about the auto ISO. I tend to change that myself, the only auto function I tend to use is auto WB. In either aperture or shutter priority this works well.

On photo Land Rover to the Rescue in the British Wheels challenge (10 comments in total)

As far as I can see, there isn't anything to show it is a Toyota or a Land Rover, so I am going to take the photographer's word that this is a Land Rover and allow the photo. Thanks for your interest.

On article Photokina 2012: Olympus Stand Report (48 comments in total)

My concern is a successor to the E-P3. I have an E-P2 and skipped the P3 as it isn't that big an upgrade. I was hoping for an E-P5, with the OMD sensor in a higher end PEN body. The E-PL5 is nice, but I like the handling of the E-P series, with multiple control dials and a hefty, quality feel to it. Maybe at CES...

On photo BMW Isetta in the Lost to history... challenge (2 comments in total)

I realize that BMW still exists, but I actually mentioned Isetta in the challenge explanation, so if someone decided to enter one, I have to allow it.

You have a point there. I will disqualify it, though I do really like the shot.

On photo Ferrari Gilles Villeneuve Brands Hatch in the Gentlemen, Start Your Engines! challenge (4 comments in total)

Member alfaflash asked if scanned photos are allowed, as this picture definitely predates any digital capture. I do tend to be abit easy and let everyone else decide the winner, and I am going to do so once again. This is a very nice shot, and the fact that it was shot with ASA 200 film makes it even more remarkable, so we'll agree to let scanned photos compete, at least in this challenge. Please check the rules in each new challenge to see if this will continue or not.

The poster said it is a Lightroom preset and not HDR. Hope that this clears things up and thanks for the heads up. Good luck!

On photo Electric Karmann in the Showtime! challenge (2 comments in total)

I am not sure this was taken at an auto show, as there is nothing to show that it was. Love the shot, and the car (had a '71 Ghia convertable myself, so I am partial to the model), but I think you need to show it in a different context, or say something in the notes.

On photo Old passions in the Chopper! challenge (1 comment in total)

That is a great bike. An old Falcone single, if I recall correctly. My father had a Guzzi before the war and I have always had a soft spot for them. Where was the shot taken?

On photo _MG_8750 in the Cruise night! challenge (1 comment in total)

As I noted in a message on the challenge home page, most Cruise Nights begin in the afternoon and end in the early evening. This is a nice photo of a car that could easily be at a local classic car show, so I see no problem with it.

On Challenge:5859 (3 comments in total)

Please note, I have had a couple of complaints that some of the photos are not taken at night. Cruise Night, at least around me, start in the late afternoon, say 5 PM and then last until about 9 PM, so for a while it is light. You can see that in the sample photo I uploaded. So there is no need to the shots to be taken at night and I am sorry if anyone was confused about the challenge.

Ron Zamir: Now all we need is a pro nicro4-3 camera.

Looks like a nice video focused lens for the Panasonic video camera, but I don't see a still shooter needing this. Just picked up a Panasonic 14-45mm lens for my EP-2 and don't see how this is an improvement. Pass...
