Your greasy-grub shot is great and will gather gobs of glory.
Thanks, sir. Maybe, but I guess that means you’ll end up, what, Top 5?
As for my Far East shots, I’m just lucky to have spent 10+ months traveling internationally over the past year-and-a-half. (And I wasn’t really into photography before then.)
Then you’re a natural. I thought that you had done this a lot longer, for at least a decade…
Thanks for the compliment!
There are some really excellent photos this week, though; I highly doubt any of my shots will even make the top 10 or 15, and if one of them does it will be undeserved. *I* wouldn’t even vote for my shots this week! I do like the “Breakfast in Yushu” photo, but the one I really wanted to submit had the guy in blue completely photoshopped out of the pic: http://www.pbase.com/artyler/image/58521312
(I don’t usually alter my photos like that, but I got completely carried away with that one.)
Your “Permit Parking Only” photo gives me some pretty intense flashbacks of living in NYC and having to deal with the early-morning parking nightmares associated with owning a car there!
