    You said "Nice post" which DPR assumed was a comment about my picture which includes fence posts.
    That can be taken as a pun.
    If you are not sure what a pun is then here is a definition,

    I'm told puns are a very difficult form of humour to translate between languages. I'd assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that English is not your first language and you had gone to some effort to make a joke. Overreacting sarcastically (eg Ha Ha) to a bad pun is how people traditionally acknowledge puns.

    Oh in my post the following were puns (words with double meanings within the context of my image)
    sign
    heated
    blood flow
    elevated heart rate

    OMG!!!! I meant nice post meaning a reply post...not a post sign or anything else....what I was trying to say was I like the way you had posted a picture of the object and a picture of the description....I should I added "no pun intended"

    CW - center weighted, this shot that was the key.
    Hard to get a read as fast as the action was, so I went with center weight metering and
    the camera did an excellent job on both ends of the histogram. I only added +18 fill in LR.
    I actually did not use recovery at all, this shot only had
    slight clipping and I prefered the brighter white. Raw gives me a lot more
    room to work.

    I spent 1/2 an hour shooting 100 panned shots of which I capture
    "Look no hands dad"
    and when I proudly show my wife she said "his foots pretty blurry"

    Took this one yesterday while descending nearby Mission Peak. My legs are complaining today. (It could use some cropping, I think, but I'm too lazy to do that now...)
