Yes, cits - it is a picture of a pile of multi-colored, Origami folded cranes on which I had installed a moire pattern.

Fabulous shot. As I've said before: your train shots are unparalleled.

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.

On photo Golden Sphere in the geometric challenge (3 comments in total)

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.

db.: Too bad such an attractive image does not come with an equally attractive—informative, attention catching, witty—title! Writing it is, IMO, part too of showing one's photographic work in public...

Agreed.

Thanks so much. I appreciate your comments. I keep trying, but I haven't yet been able to take a better bird photo than this.

On challenge Landscape Seascape (3 comments in total)

It's pretty clear Bill means: "create a seascape image in landscape, rather than portrait, format."

Oh great; just what I've been waiting for . . . a pageful of toilet pictures! Brilliant Challenge concept.

On photo Mistify in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

I can't figure out why this type of scene is so highly voted by dpreview members. Not to take away from Ozzie's excellent rendering of the image -- it's just that this, or another similar image of foreground rocks, silky waves and ocean background, continue to be top contenders in any challenge in which they appear. It must be that Ozzie has tapped into some kind of racial memory. Whatever is it . . . congratulations, Ozzie.

In reply to:

justyntime: What a waste of time...

I apologize for again hijacking Dutch Newchurch’s brief spotlight of deserved fame, but this will be my last comment on this issue.
@Justyntime: Although the photography you do is not the type or style that is of interest to me personally (nor is it what I think the majority of photographers here on Dpreview aspire to), I will admit that your website does show you have some skill as a photographer. What I and others here are reacting to, I believe, is your insensitivity and superior, better-than-thou attitude exemplified by such insulting comments as “what a waste of time”, and “I doubt that any advanced photographer has a gallery on dpreview”. I think Dutch Newchurch was most gracious with you, in spite of your rudeness, but I find it quite presumptuous that you feel your arrogant, self-aggrandizing braggadocio could help him (or us) to grow as photographers. Do you not see how the way you come across is likely to incite anger and resentment? Or possibly you don’t care.

Bad choice to allow unlimited entries. Many images will not get fairly evaluated.
