Bongo, great job on your BLUE. You've been wanting and waiting and there you go. That really didn't take too long, did it? We'll celebrate on Thursday. By the way, get back to work. All the best in your future submissions! Hollywood.

I was the other photographer with dishes, though yours is definitely superior. I will go through life telling myself I would have ranked higher had you not been here for comparison.

Anyway, it's a great shot. Congratulations.

Way to go - Stunning shot. Was my top pick.

Now who in the heck voted this as a 1 or 2? WWYT?

10/20/2004 12:24:38 AM
Hee, well I was right about it being top 20... :-P Congratulations on the blue. I didn't get to finish voting, but this was like I said in my original comment the only shot that I saw where I had to stop and say 'ooo' or was it 'wow'. Anyways congrats on being my wallpaper of the moment!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2004 12:07:59 AM
Wow! My first blue ribbon! This is awesome.
This was a last minute idea, spotted some dish antenna's at a transmission station, went over to take some shots.
This was just a 30sec exposure on a very clear night...lot's of stars.
I'm shocked.
Thankyou all for your votes and comments.
10/20/2004 12:06:00 AM
Congrats on your second ribbon Randy!

My pick for the blue. Good luck! 10

Great shot, but I'm having a hard time believing it is real. It looks too good to be true. Is is a display?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/19/2004 09:23:07 AM
I like the sky and the nice purple cast. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/19/2004 07:35:26 AM
Oooo, very cool. I like this a lot. I think the composition is great, and the long exposure to get the stars makes a huge statement. The colors are very nice, and the darkening from bottom left to top right gives a good balance. Impactful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2004 09:47:43 PM
I think the background constellation is Taurus. I see the pleides just above the right side of the dish, and the heyedes above the left center of the dish. Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2004 03:48:09 PM
a really well composed and well exposed night shot...great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2004 11:47:13 AM
Finally a great shot! You should do very well with this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2004 01:31:05 AM
This is so far the first shot to make me stop and say 'Wow'. Nicely exposed. Love the fact that yougot 5 of the seven sisters and Orions belt. Great gradiations of light in the dish itself. Only thing that detracts is the brighter area in the bottom left. Easily fixed in advanced editing. In basic editing, maybe croping that out (I know you lose part of the dish, but it may have made this a top 5 instead of top 20)...

I love the lighting on this shot. Taken at twilight? I'll have to come back and check out where this is- it's beautiful.

I like the idea and its execution is good to.

Love the use of deep colors in this. Excellent
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2004 07:07:43 PM
Excellent coolness to this shot. The feel is clean and wistful. I would have zoomed out from the dish to give it room to breathe on the side and bottom of the photo, though not at the cost of the sky. Then again, I expect there might be limitations to composition outside of the frame I do not see. Well done. 8

Ohhh, wqhy did you cropped it so tight in the bottom? I like it a lot. 9.

Definitely a standout in this bunch! The exposure is just perfect here. Super composition, too... I can't imagine this not being in the top 3 this time! - 10
