On photo Close-up of water Decorations in the Nature's Decorations challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is an impressive image of a water lily, fotoselect, and it deserves second place in this 'Nature's Decorations' challenge. The colours, minute details and the intensity of the flower demand our attention. It is quite amazing that such beauty can rise from ponds where the water is usually less than crystal clear.
RuthC :-)

thanks for the warm words...I really enjoy taking pics of water lilies...they are so interesting and colorful and different from each other.
p.s. I sent another pic of water lily to another challenge ...
thanks again

Most of the images are free of P.P.
I'm surprised that they were not disqualified!

Very nice picture, in my eyes, and in my opinion should have been ranked much higher.

On photo Hoover Dam in the Dams challenge (2 comments in total)

Hi RAYoung
Thanks for the correction.
You're right, I got confused.
It was my first trip to nature reserves in the west.
Your image, of the same dam, is better and should have ranked higher.

I had a slightly different reaction that BettyH. I liked the shadow lines. Without them, I think it would be a perfect nice, but unremarkable, photo of a bird. But the shadows added visual interest to me.
I suspect that you'll be getting lots of comments on both sides of this. :-)
Ideally, I'd like to see all the highlight details in those feathers. Was the RAW file overexposed to an extent to where all those details were lost? If not, I would suggest adding them back to the finished image.
By bettyhilda (2 days ago)
This is nice but I found the shadow lines a bit distracting on the bird. It's a bit of a tight crop but nice against the dark background

The improved version.
more background around the subject, more details of the white feathers and a slightly bigger orange foot on the right of the pic.

Very nice shot, hard to get white details and keep the shadows, but somehow you managed both. My only problem with it, is lack of room, is very tied, I would give this bird some more room
By MarioSS (1 day ago)
Very good composition and image sharpness. Good colour balance. Interesting shadows. Enough details in the highlights. Personally, I would have like to see a little more of the orange colour on the lower right side of the bird to better balance the image. Nice image, A+
By Melodyac (1 day ago)
I agree about adding more detail/highlights in the feathers if the whites weren't blown. It looks like its highly cropped, so not sure if you have those details available. Also, if cropped, I may like to see a little larger on the bottom and right to see the rest of its foot under water.
