Awesome outdoor capture! I wish he wasn't waving, but still most excellent though.

despite the sharpening, the very upper part of the sky is nice(about 50px from the top down)... the rest of your photograph is completely out of focus.

High Altitude Intersection
I fail to see any intersection in the sky as I also fail to see any intersection on the signs. I assume you were focusing on the signs where is very hard to read with that focus… as commented already!… Millions of thanks, for the millions of pixels missing - to you for describing what you saw and for the mother nature dear louddog; She MADE that photo... for you to capture beyond your comprehension of photography.

"V" is View…
Do you realize the … whatever you assume is the best photography in the world… licks and falls to the very right of yours? NO? “

“We were side by side shooting at the same track from the same distance in the same lighting, shooting the same thing and got practically the same score.
(Note: I know the advantages of having a DSLR and better equipment. This example is only pointing out that you do not need to have a DSLR and fancy equipment to compete here.)”

You must consider yourself ridicules comparing your camera with a 5 times better camera then yours; and for the way you take you pictures… that camera, for a beginner would make him a pro! Right! The same camera would not help you!

The Race
Based on the above observations, I cannot consider that you would be ever so close to such an excellent shoot.

LOUD DOG… You are so full of it!

The rest is beyond your lousy photography skills.

dan... Thanks for taking the time to comment on my photo. My photo must have really touched you since it's the only comment you have ever made here, I really appreciate your effort. I checked out your portfolio because if you think I have "lousy photography skills" I wanted to see the source that this blunt statement was coming from. Based on your skills shown thus far, your comments does not offend me.

As for your comments. Please re-read what I wrote in the forum that made you so mad that you had to come hear and trash my photos. Read it slowly and try to understand what I said. I never said the S2 is anywhere near the camera the 20Dis. I said you don’t need to have a 20D to compete here. Also, FYI I have a 20D a 300D and several lens. I’m not an expert but I do know what I’m talking about.

Your comments on my photos are quite bizarre. I’m guessing English is not your first language so I won’t give you a hard time about that.

I never said I was a great photographer, I don’t pretend to be great or better then anyone else. I take photos and have fun. I don’t think any photos fall to the right of mine. People on DPC vote and sometimes several photos do fall to the right of mine. Sometimes people comment that they like my photos. If you disagree with them, please don’t take it out on me. I have no control where my photos rank and what comments people put on them.

I don’t take credit for what mother nature does, I just like to capture it. If you read my profile I think that’s pretty clear. Again, re-read it slowly and try to understand. I noticed though that your “beauty” photo is a blatant take on a creation of mother nature without even using a creative composition. I guess it’s only okay for you to take photos of stuff mother nature creates? Hmm, that kind of makes you a hypocrite.

And… I assure that I was at that motocross race and I did take that photo with my S2. Actually I took a couple hundred shots that came out just as good and had a hard time chosing this one. If you have reason to doubt that I took it you should contact SC and request my image get DQ’d.

Good luck on future challenges, but if you keep up the attitude that you seem to have, this community will not like you very much.

P.S. I quoted you here so if you ever grow up and realize this was a bad idea you can not delete the comment.

This is one of those special images displaying the strength of the silhoutte. here it is employed to create a vast sense of distance. A wonderful image to entertain the eye and the senses.

This picture was taken totally on accident. My friend Dave climbed up an out cropping looking for a better way up and then stood up on the little peak. I grabbed my camera in point and shoot mode and snapped a shot. It came out too over exposed so I pointed the camera at the sky and locked the focus then panned over and took the shot again and got the silouhette effect. By that time he saw I had the camera out and started waving. If I had it to do over again I'd either tell him to stop waving or title it "hello from the edge."

Fantastic. I can almost touch the fresh atmosphere there!

A terrific shot - I love the dark silouhette against the blue sky and mountain colors below. This is definately 'on the edge'. Composition and color are excellent. Great work. :-)

Love it, but would have been better if he wasn't waving... it detracts from the drama of the picture.

Great and unusual picture. Very well seen and prepared. -9-

The use of silhouettes against blue sky to make your subjects stand out is very good, and the inclusion of just enough background mountain range in the lower left gives scale and perspective as importan clues. The only thing I don't like is the centrally located placed person which gives a static feel to the photo. Maybe placing him/her up higher in the photo would have added a more dynamic feel. Overall, well done.

Cool idea. 9.

I think I would have liked this photo better if he wasn't waving...just a suggestion.

Beautiful shot. How come everyone else gets to be in these great places for challenge shots like this.

This is really a great photo. I would love to see the guy turned around with his arms outreached. That would be a very powerful photo. However, this is a great photo for the challenge ! Good luck !

This is a striking photograph but I don't like the persons pose and waving at the camera. I think it would be better if they were just standing there looking into the distance. Good shot though and it certainly meets the challenge in my view.

Great Shot.

I like the bright mountains at the back. 10.

I like the dark forground and the lit background. Lost a little drama by having the person in the center of the frame.

i like the idea but i don't think he should be waving

Very cool picture! This would have made a nice "motivational" poster!
