You're right. This forum is mostly nonsense.
In reply to Marcus Antonius, Jan 23, 2013

Used to be there were interesting threads. Now it's pretty much dweebs who don't take pictures.

Here's a straight-forward news photo that I've sold a lot:

http://www.pbase.com/zidar/image/144780836

And here's another photo that also goes with an important news story.

http://www.pbase.com/zidar/image/146792159

One thing I see absent in this forum is the recognition that photography has a purpose. I shoot newsphotos.

Dear All,

Since the 5d3 hit the shelves globally this place not only degraded to a low level, insulting, pixel peeping (whom some of you actually made legit comparisons that were truly interesting to read, however the majority of it is complete bs) forum, but the images i see posted here OH BOY. The past weeks i feel i have been thrown back to the 1100D - 300D forum. It seems that the present "enthusiastic amateur" has enough cash stashed to buy their new gadget to capture meaningless totally NON creative imagery

Meaning is not something that you have to understand. I hate all the cat photos. To me they all look the same, but to someone out there, that cat is their cat. It does mean something. Photos of my kids, I'm sure have no value to you, but to me they are priceless. To show them or talk about how I got them is not worthless to many.

Images that have value to you does not mean you have to share them...

that would not even deserve a shutter actuation to me, let alone taking the effort of doing a terrible job of PP and posting it on a alleged "pro" forum.

Who ever said this was a "pro" forum? It is a gear forum. People gripe endlessly about banding and Dynamic range and what the 6d MKII is going to look like(yes wait for that)

I said this "was" a pro (-gear) forum, and turned into a well... fill that in yourself

Is that insulting to you?

Yes, It comes across as arrogant and rude.

Ok, but i know i'm far from, so i won't take that too seriously.

Maybe yes, but then you should question yourself if you need to improve your skills instead of talking about the improved functions on your camera.

Again, this is a gear forum.

That doesn't mean those gears can't show what you can do with them. If you have a completely rebuilt 56 impala in the shed, you can talk about it all day, but driving it and showing it with pride is something you want to do actually.

(Have i seen good images on this forum lately? YES, i have seen some, but the majority is really dissapointing to be honest).

I do agree here, I rarely see great images here.

Something that used to be (years ago).

Back in the days, people were "afraid" of asking something in this forum not to upset the pro's or looking dumb, now it's the other way round!

Agree, I am not sure fear is a good thing though. Do you want people to fear you? I don't. I owe a lot to the online photography community. I feel I have reached a more advanced stage now, and the last thing I want to do is to stop helping people who know less than me.

I don't want people to fear anyone, i want to be a mirror and set an example to some. And i hope that will trigger them to train a better eye and try harder. (that's my philosophy behind all this). If i achieve that only by a little, i think i did a job well done.

Now i ask you to just fill one thread with the best of the best work you shot with your new camera.

Great, that's hard to say. I do know that this photo was extremely hard to get. This was taken in Grand Teton National Park. Very early in the morning. You can see the sunrise in the Ermin's eyes. No flash was used here. This guy was so quick and he never stopped moving. Low light, tough AF target, couldn't get close enough. Luckily I had a great AF, great low light performance, and 22MP to crop into it and get the framing I wanted.



Ermin watches the sun rise. For about 1 second.

The story never should be more impressive than the shot in my eyes. It can strengthen an image just like a particular song can with an image, but the image on itself should tell most of the story.

I like the light and pose of the ermin, though i find the foreground distracting, especially the long brown twig.

And make the people with love for photography believe in this forum again.

It seems like you wanted this thread to fail, to prove your point. Well it has, I don't see 149 stellar images. If this challenge were posed to the 1D people would the results be any different? I don't think so.

I didn't want to address the 5dx owners only, i wanted to address all users to show their best, and like said before, i wanted to trigger some, and be a mirror to others.

Please only respond if you have a great image to show. We have enough posts with nonsense now

Marcus

p.s. I should make this thread contain 150 shots by adding one recent image of myself:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/therealthings/6641117129/in/set-72157628678494745/lightbox/

Is it my best, i'm sure it's not. Is it a superb shot, i know it's not. But is it better than 90% of the work posted on this forum now, heck yes!

In reply to Marcus Antonius, Jan 23, 2013

How would you define 'best shots'? I don't think there is an universally acceptable definition. The definition depends hugely on personal preferences. I have noticed that for most people sharp pictures with vibrant colors equal 'best shots'. They love postcard type pictures. We all have our own preferences, so nothing against it.

But something annoys me. When I see people commenting something like this, 'Why take a picture of your cat, dog or children with such an expensive camera, you could have done that with PS'. Nothing can be more hilarious. For one, an experienced and creative photographer will take amazing pictures with point and shoot and we will struggle to come close with our DSLRs. And pictures of cats, dogs and children can be very creative too. This thread has at least one cat picture I liked better than many sharp pictures.

Anyways, my 20 favorite shots with 5D3. I must admit that I have done better with 5D2, probably because I have used it much longer.

How bout this one? I shot it through my hotel room window in downtown Toronto.

Straighten the vertical lines in this shot and it'll improve. I love the depth of it especially because of the offices within the building in front of the hilton.

Thanks for sharing.

I think you already know i love your landscapes. But that doesn't make me less critical But i can't deny this is a fabulous shot and an inspiration to many.

Thanks Regarding buying the 5D mkIII, I had been waiting for a camera that could be used side by side with the 1Ds mkIII and with equal IQ and handling.

Another picture from my recent Tuscany workshop taken with the 5D mkIII and the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II which is my favorite lens for landscapes. The new Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II comes close!

The other pictures in the gallery are also taken with the 5D mkIII and most of them the 1Ds mkIII and a few with the Phase One IQ160.

Beautiful work Hans! Truly wonderful images that I find very inspiring.

I'd love to do one of your workshops, so if ever you do some in Australia I'm in! Looks like it would be worth every penny.

Excellent 20-pics! The key is to "see" a picture before it is taken, to be able to understand the power of some situations, objects, compositions.

I don't even come close to your pictures (and mine are taken years ago with a 20D), but I hope they have a bit more depth than a snapshot.

Thanks very much I would love to do workshops down under But it would cost me quite in investment before I could do it. At least the way I do workshops. I always go at least 3 times to a location to spot the good spots and at the time of year when then workshop is to be run. This means quite some travel and cost before I could set up even the first workshop. The alternative would be to partner with somebody else, but then it's not really my workshops any more. A long way to say it will not be next year or the year after So it would be much better if you travelled to Europe I had already several from Australia on my workshops.

I don't think the forum title or description ever included the word "pro" in it.  Times have changed, these tools are much more accessible and accepted by the general public.  Even photography itself is being redefined.  Cell Phone Cameras, The Uncle Bobs shooting weddings, and Instagram.  This isn't the fault of one camera, or another.

Is that insulting to you?

Yes, It comes across as arrogant and rude.

You're allowed to share anything (almost) you like.  It can take years to be able to take a step back and see that a photo of something beautiful is not quite so beautiful.  That's a lovely photo, but the eyes aren't as sharp as they could be.

One thing I see absent in this forum is the recognition that photography has a purpose. I shoot newsphotos.

It's good to have purpose.

Photography is zen for me. I shoot anything and everything, and don't have to work. I give it away.

Hi,

I love urbex shots (but that's personal).
I do like the 'tower of power', and 'electric fences' shot.

Full frame or not, it did add quality to the forum, and that was my point for creating this topic.

Cheers,

Marcus
