I wanted to blast this one and do it really good... Unfortunately I was busy and could not get the shot I wanted.

I think I might still run for the top 10 but definitely can not break the record of the camera (phone) I used...


... now I have 3 to beat to get the #1 spot with the iPhone!

But at least I got a HM

Congrats to the winners!

I don't know what's going on here - my score is still going in the wrong direction. 6.1379, which is .06 more than five hours ago.

My entry is still above six, which is way more than it deserves. tsch.

Those Basic Editing Rules Really get ya! I gotta be more careful next time, I got DQ'd! Used 1 layer mask, not worth it.

there's a whole series of these and they're great


The lesson I pull from Jarvis' example here is that it's about connecting with people for him. He seems to prioritize those connections ahead of technical details, and in the end it probably even helps with the technical end to build a positive & supportive community around himself. Thanks for sharing the vid.

why?

OK, I guess I wouldn't really be annoyed, more just commenting on the irony of, at Robert says, having an investment in camera, lenses, filters, manual controls, etc., and then having a top-rated picture be one taken with a dinky little phone camera ... I admit I took some care with subject, composition, etc. -- it wasn't a pure snapshot -- but still ...

Anyway, I don't think it will make it into my top three, but it is hovering back and forth around a six, which is quite a bit higher than I expected. I usually still try to use my Olympus as my carry-around spur of the moment camera, but maybe I'll have to start giving the phone another try.

Try having a free cell phone be your on after investing several grand in gear... Not just front page, but The Frontrunner...

1.2MP in the right hands is better than 8MP in left hands wrong hands...

Yup, you got it. I wouldn't have thought it was recognizable as mine...

Stunning shot Robert, and was a complete departure from your norm.
You did leave your Fingerprints, on a Glossy Finish though...

Got close (11th & 13th)

Good luck on yours Robert.
Didn't take me, long to find yours

Hehe - the more things change, the more they stay the same.


Are you sure about that? Drop a comment, if so. And good luck on your top-10 quest :-) My sister was visiting here so I got to use her iPhone4S, fun...

It's the price you pay for greatness, Paul... Mine won't make my profile page, but it's getting close to that range. When you consider the bux I got invested in glass, that's giving me pause to think, so I hear ya :-)
