What are these featured articles on news page?
Sep 8, 2011

I read three and have to say, I'm appalled.

Dpreview articles, reviews in particular, are of the highest quality bar none, so I read news here regularly. Read 3 featured articles,

Wildlife photography in East Africa - the (one) image is great, but the article itself is just a couple of sentences that sound like a weak advertisement.

Composition - Left of center - this is just plainly poor. The concept is trivial and has been explained in zilliion articles before, samples are simply bad for someone trying to teach composition.

The what and why of wildlife macro photography - a nice article, but it should've been called "The why of wildlife macro photography" since there's extremely little about "what".

Any dpreview dslr forum can give plenty more info about the subjects in these articles. Just saying...
