On challenge Dog (4 comments in total)

I only saw this challenge tonight. (yup, busy with holidays and 2 weeks of visiting family members!) Guess I'll wait for another dog challenge. Besides, the photo I consider my best shot has 2 dogs in it anyway. There are some great photos of great looking dogs here to vote on though.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, buzzsolo, on your well-deserved second place in the 'Lichens & Mosses' challenge, with your delightful and aptly-named British Soldier lichens. The picture is clear, bright with interesting details. A real beauty in every sense of the word.
RuthC :-)

Thank you, Ruth. I was stunned when I got the notification, made me really happy. I still find it amazing at times what one can do with a little camera.

Checked this out as I own the LZ8. I see it has yet to be released. Can't say I would be interested, it's got the same size sensor as my LZ8 and doubled the megapixels from 8 to 16! I don't know what Panasonic is thinking. The only thing I like is that it IS supposed to take 4 AA batteries and has a longer zoom (LZ8 only has 5x) but with that size sensor I can't imagine they'll sell many no matter how budget friendly it is.

Simply beautiful. I think I found a new vacation destination! Now if I can just convince my spouse. He seems to think northern Michigan is cold enough!
