On photo stealing a sip of water in the Your City - Citybirds challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

embie: Congratulations !!! Fantastic !
My kind of shot, but, wasn't so lucky, yet ;)
PS : why is the camera and lens you used here not on your gear list ?

Both used to be on my gear list, and I still have them in a drawer, but I'm not using them anymore. I'm shooting with an Olympus m4/3 system now - which reminds me that I have to add my new E-M1 II.

In reply to:

LensBeginner: Are you sure this is in Rome?
I'm asking because - while I know that the she-wolf is the symbol of both cities - there's an identical fountain in Siena - I know because I made some very similar shots there.

Great shot at any rate ;-)

As far as I can remember it must have been in Rome, but then again, on the same trip (in 2007 - no geotags) we also visited Florence, Siena and Lucca.

On photo Blue Mosque in Istanbul in the Middle East challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

NZ Scott: This isn't in the Middle East, but nice photo anyway.

Yes, and also Wikipedia and many other Google search results include Turkey in the Middle East.
(in fact, I did check for that before I submitted, but mainly because I also had some pictures from Iran and Qatar).
I guess you are glad to be out of Turkey right now?
And I'm glad we did our trip already - we would no longer be keen to go now (we had no worries to visit Iran last year and the year before).

well ... it still is in Turkey (as per challenge rules)
:-)
But I know what you mean; it is on the wrong side of the Bosporus.
But on the other hand, I think that culturally and even politically it is more Middle Eastern than Ankara.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Wilfried HKG, on first place in 'A Movie Title, with a Twist of Nature' challenge. This delightful entry made me laugh as soon as I saw it, since it meets the humorous theme of the challenge superbly. It is a great picture of a small monkey, with wonderful details and textures in its face, hairy body, and particularly in its left foot. Ruth :-)

Thanks, Ruth, and the movie wasn't bad, either.
I was amazed how big the monkey's foot is relative to its head.

The numbers are a little bit off; a half-pixel shift is not 0.0002mm, but 0.002mm (= 2µm). Also, the tolerance should read ±0.001mm (= 1µm).
