Bowser - No wonder the "The Wave is one of your favorite images. It\nwould be one of anyone's. Nice conversion to black and white.\n\nThe fisheye lens shot of the playground equipment is an interesting\nattempt, but lacks something. I'd try a selection of the left half,\nflopping it, and flattening. That would make the right half a mirror\nimage of the left half. As long as we're going weird, go all the way.\n\nI got the significance of 10 with the basketball hoop, but just\nmeeting the mandate isn't enough. There should be something of\ninterest.\n\nBob Coe - Interior architecture is difficult (for me, at least) and\noffers some interesting shapes and designs. I'd like the auditorium a\nlittle less dark, but the dark vignetting does work.\n\nMartha Coe - I like these early northeast US buildings and the idea of\ndocumenting them before they're gone forever. I think the building on\nthe left is the most interesting, and would have shot to frame just\nthat.\n\nThistles are like cockroaches...they'll be here forever no matter what\nthe landscapers do. The image isn't outstanding on its own, but does\ntie in with the documentation of what is now but will be gone from\nthat site.\n\nIt's a shame that the mural might be lost. Again, good to document\nthese things. As a photograph, I'd take out the fire alarm and the\nExit sign, but purists like everything retained.\n\nPeter Newman - Peter seems to like to do anything but capture realism,\nand that's fine. Quite an interesting result here with the Multiple\nZoom.\n\nThere was a photograph in the Trapeze artist, but it is absolutely\nruined by the dust spots. Go buy a Giotto blower and get to work. The\nSociety for the Prevention of Cruelty to D800s should impound that\ncamera.\n\nGood think the bridges were photographed at night. No dust spots.\nInteresting play with the bright moon at the right and the bright\nwhatever to the diagonal left.\n\nTim Conway - As mentioned about Bowser's hoop, meeting the mandate\nisn't enough. The sandwich poster meets, but doesn't interest. Ditto\nfor the other 10 10 10 10 10.\n\nIt's just the opposite with the landscape. I don't care what the\nmandate is, this is an excellent photo. Go buy a frame.\n\nEric Stevens - Old machinery and vehicles is a favorite subject of\nmine. This shot, though, doesn't present an interesting view of the\ngrader. Zoom in and get some aspect with more interest if you can't\nget the whole thing in an interesting setting.\n\nTrains are tough subjects for me. I look at them and think there's\nsomething good here, but often can't isolate one frame that works.\nThat's the case here, too, with the locomotive. I really don't like\nthat bright corner at lower right. It's what I see first, and it has\nnothing to do with the subject. The streetcar wheel is better.\n\nThe Duck - That's my kind of shot. The hat covering the face makes\nthis one. I don't remember the color version, but if there's chalk\ndrawings on the pavement I might have preferred that. Generally, I\nlike black and white for "Street candids", but if the color adds an\nelement I'll go for color. I wouldn't use color just for the pastel\nsticks, though.\n\nSan Simeon beach is the type of shot I'll never come up with, but I\nlike the result. I'd not see the photograph that's there. The color\nblending in this is superb.\n\nThe black and white canyon shot is of less interest to me. While it\ndoes have an Adams-like look, it's just kind of muddy - except for the\nwater - to me. But, then, I'm not a landscape person.\n\nTony Cooper - I've commented on mine in another thread. I did try to\nshoot three for the mandate of "10", though.\n\nDanP - The tower clock just doesn't do it for me. Seems out-of-focus\nwith the salient details obscured.\n\nThe planes, though, *do* do it. Extraordinary timing in the capture.\nAn overall favorite of the bunch for me just for the skill of waiting\nfor that moment.\n\nThe lightning shot is another extraordinary timing capture, but calls\nfor a white stroke border frame in the black PBase black background\nscreen. It's so hard to tell where the image stops and the background\nbegins on the right. Those three dots of light on the far right look\nlike they were not in the scene.\n\nI miss Otter's shots. He usually comes up with something good.
