poorly executed. Next time try about f8 or f10. You'll have a better chance of getting the subjects in focus.

On photo Go! in the > 3, 2, 1.... Go! challenge (3 comments in total)

Clearly, there's a half a dozen voters that don't know an excellent shot when they see one.

On photo Ready... Set... Go! in the > 3, 2, 1.... Go! challenge (1 comment in total)

the background did you in on this one. Excellent focus on the hawk and a nice catch on takeoff. IMO, should have placed higher.

Nice shootin.

That's a real nice catch - perfect focus too. One of my four favorites in this challenge. I looked you your "city." You're way up north!

On photo Mrs. Gonzales in the ~ S h e ~ challenge (15 comments in total)

That was my first reaction, but looking at kotec's other entries, there is no pattern at all. And, kotec has another 1st place. I came to the conclusion that this shots is just good enough (and clever enough for this challenge) to grab quite a few 5-star votes w/o padding.

The histogram is maybe a little suspicious, but certainly within the realm of possibility IMO.

makes me laugh! Thanks for that. It's got to be a family treasure.

Nice shootin!

Perfect exposure & shutter. Gotta love those colors too!

Nice shootin!

One of my three favorites. Few folks appreciate the effort required to catch a nice shot of the Kingfisher. There's just no way to get close to them short of long hours in a blind. If you go out again, you might back off on the sharpness just a little. The breast is a little mushed too.

Real nice shot regardless.

I knew it was just a matter of time until you won another one. That little guy looks plum tuckered out ;-)

On photo BMW X6 in the Cars ! challenge (3 comments in total)

I wouldn't get to discouraged over this result. There's nothing wrong with your entry - nice car, nice exposure & technically fine. However, beyond that, it doesn't jump out. I'm thinking that most voters didn't give it more than a passing look. For what it's worth, my entry didn't place that high either - tied for 112th :(

Keep entering. You'll do better. Who know what the voters in this challenge were looking for?

The flower is a little soft, but this shot should have finished higher.

On photo In The Garden of Paul in the Show us your Bokeh.... challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice focus on the tips of the anther and,, the bokeh is very nice. The petals out of focus makes the shot a little unusual, but ..... still not sure why you ended up 105th.

On photo Peeping Swallow in the Show us your Bokeh.... challenge (4 comments in total)

The swallow is a little soft, but since the bokeh is OK, I don't see a reason for all the low votes. Certainly should not have finished near the bottom :(

Keep trying!

On photo Cut Back in the Endless Summer challenge (3 comments in total)

Well, there's nothing that says the photographer has to be holding the camera. See:

I also wondered about the shot until I read the caption and did a little looking around.

Been to Rome but only for a few days. However, I've bicycled across Italy twice. Perhaps, this scene is more common in Italy/Europe than the States, but still not common IMO.

Oh sure, I see a beautiful woman in an incredibly sexy pose drinking out of a spigot every day ;-)

Definitely fits the theme. You have a nice eye for the unusual. Congrats on the high finish. BTW, are those heals she's wearing??? If so, nice balance!

A very thoughtful reply Mattias. That should put the harassment to sleep ;-)

Congrats on a fine win.
