On photo Waiting for the tide in the The Illusion of Depth and Distance challenge (2 comments in total)

Love this photo! Detailed and nicely composed. The color toning may have put some people off, but I think it is wonderful. More creative than some of the other entries voted higher, IMHO.

Mlumiere: Is it possible to capture images (frame grab) from a 4k video?

Daum Potplayer is a video player - doesn't care what devise created the video. View the video through the player; pause at the image you want to grab; open the "Potplayer" menu; select "Video", "Video Capture", then "Save Current Screen Frame As", and choose desired format for saving image.

oscarc: Nice politically driven contest. Makes sense that the photos with the most death and destruction would get the most attention just like in the news. Aside from this, pictures like these help promote the climate change/global warming hoax. Forget that satellite images show more ice than ever, or that the earth was actually cooling, hence the "global warming" label change. Never mind that "scientists" manipulated data to support their position. Pesky facts. And yes, there is politics in everything.

One of the best articles documenting the phenomena of climate change "denial" was published by the Scientific American Journal in 2009. Evidence supporting climate change has grown even more since then:

This “debate” about climate change reminds me of the warnings about the harmful effects of cigarette smoking that had a similar history of dispute (of course the studies disputing the harmful effects were paid for by the tobacco industry!) The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, one of the largest bodies of international scientists ever assembled to study a scientific issue, involving more than 2,500 scientists from more than 130 countries, concluded that most warming observed during the past 50 years is attributable to human activities. Its findings have been publicly endorsed by the national academies of science of all G-8 nations, as well as those of China, India and Brazil. One study examined every article on climate change published in peer-reviewed scientific journals over a 10-year period. Of the 928 articles on climate change the authors found, not one of them disagreed with the consensus position that climate change is happening and is human-induced.

On photo Covered Wooden Bridge in the Rustic challenge (13 comments in total)

Thanks for the support, DWare. Admittedly, my entry could stand some improvements - but it is an older image that I thought fit the challenge theme well.

Metal sculpture (maybe polished brass?); about 4-5 meters high; installed in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Francisco. I took this picture from a overhanging balcony on the 6th floor.

The 11 year old Panny FZ30 can still put out wonderful images . . . 'course it has something to do with the photographer also. Nice capture, Kreber.

On article mini Plaster Hand is a camera mount on a belt (44 comments in total)

I like the idea of the Ultrapod, in that it can attach to various objects besides round railings, but it can only hold a little over 1 LB. Minilooloo's design looks much more sturdy and capable, if somewhat limited in objects it can attach to. Now, if Minilooloo can modify the design to expand to more attachable objects, but still hold heavier DSLRs, I'd buy one in a second.
