On challenge Song Titles- Little Deuce Coupe (5 comments in total)

Interesting . . . out of 22 entries, only 3 are actually 1932 "Deuce" coupes.

ovatab: looks like some Civil Aviation Safety Regulations have been violated to take those pictures

Pretty presumptuous on your part.

On photo City Lights Movie Theater in the Your City - Movie Theater challenge (26 comments in total)

Except for RuthC - I don't understand the reason for any of the critical comments here. All seem out of place and irrelevant. The theme was simple: show a movie theater (inside or out), which the winner did! This was not a challenge for the "best low light M43 shot"; nor was it to show a theater "while the movie was playing"; nor was it the "best HDR shot"; nor was it to "prevent motion blur so the audience doesn't look old!" Geez. I sometimes have my suspicions about the quality of members votes in these challenges - but in this case, the complainer comments here are just a waste of good web space.

Like the picture. Too bad you didn't give it a title.

In reply to:

poppyjk: This is a great photo. I've seen it now in 10 challenges in color and 2 challenges in black and white. Show us some of your other work. This one is worn out.

Agreed. Getting tired of this image . . . :-(

On article Applying color theory to landscape photography (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

borissimo86: This color theory is nice if you want a photo to look like a creative painting, but most of the time I desire a better depiction of reality.

"Reality" is overrated . . .

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

Very creative. In a different kind of challenge, this would have likely gotten top honors.

On photo Cypress Swamp, South Carolina in the Swamp Thing challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

T bird: Nice, gives the feel of the swamp.

Thanks, T bird. Can't remember the name of the town in SC, but this swamp was a tiny piece of land (maybe 2-3 acres) preserved around the middle of town. It obviously was a much larger swampland in the past that had succumbed to building "progress". Kind of sad in one respect.

On photo Shelter in the Desert in the Cabin challenge (1 comment in total)

Ha! I was going to post the same picture, but you beat me to it. And besides - yours is better. People might like to know that this cabin was built for the 1991 movie "City Slickers" (with Billy Crystal and Jack Palance), but was left in place after the movie was finished.

On challenge Tripod only (7 comments in total)

I'd like to know how you're going to verify that the entry submitted was actually taken while using a tripod. Let me guess . . . you're going to trust the honesty of the Dpreview member. Ha, ha, ha! Oh that's rich!

On photo Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Buzz Lightyear, on being one of hundreds of photographers jostling each other for best positions, but more particularly, taking this fabulous picture through the keyhole of the Rock. Some shots I've seen of this interesting phenomenon are so over-processed to be unbelievable, but yours retains its naturalness and beauty and it deserves its top place in this weekly challenge.
RuthC :-)

Thanks, Ruth. Glad you like it.

On photo happy in the Expressions challenge (2 comments in total)

I feel the same, Ruth. This photo has been entered at least 11 times in different Dpreview challenges, and ranked in an enormous spread between 99th and 1st place! What drives a person to continue to enter the same photo so many times? It's OK if one is trying to see how a photo they think is especially good might do in 1 or 2 different challenges - but I am especially puzzled by those that enter the same photo in multiple challenges after achieving a #1 placement. It's like slot machines junkies!

LOL! That's not a buzzard. Red Tailed, or maybe Red Shoulder, Hawk.

On photo Moraine Lake panorama in the Best Landscape Ever! challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice photo - but I don't understand how you could have used a Leica D Vario-Elmarit lens on a compact camera that has a fixed lens.
