I am Russian. Dear friends, is why so many negative reviews? Moreover, the emphasis is on the nationality of the photographer. Sorry for bad English.
I just can't understand any of the negative remarks. These are wonderful photographs. The use of Photoshop, the gender of the photographer, the fact that these are children....hey, none of these are germane to the finished product: good looking and beautiful images.
I like them.
Problematic part of the world? Do not worry about us. We're fine. Think better about yourself.
Stephan Def: Its obvious to see that these images were done with some high-end Hardware and advanced software processing. So the storyline about a "family farm in rural russia" looks pretty contructed to me.
Shes from Moscow, somehow achieving high income or she has some generous benefactor, which is not so unusual for aspiring hipp fotographers. So she could just as well be someone from the New York art scene who took shots on the "Family Farm" in upper Newyork/Vermont.
The Fotos are nice, imo, the storyline sucks.
How long have you been in Moscow?
Coliban: What a beautiful camera.
And a straight forwarded User-Interface: ISO-dial, Speed dial. Exposure Compensation and the aperture ring on the lens. It is really the same UI as with an analog camera. That was no too complicated, to discover that a UI which was good for our hands and minds during the last 100 years, is somehow still the UI which we can handle. Although evolution is fast, it is not so fast to change the function of our hands within a period of 100 years.
In some way i am a Nikon fanboy and i wonder if Nikon is able to a) produce a Df2 which is a really full analog-wise digital camera and b) if Nikon is able to abandon this N1 nonsense (through my eyes) and build a high quality APS-C compact SLR-Style mirror less camera like the coming Fuji X-T1. If Nikon do this step, it would be an serious rival to Fuji on that area. I would like to see such a Nikon. Only my dream
Do you have Nikon DF?
ogl: EU keeps killing Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Latvia, Estonia.
Democrats made a mess.
Elliot234567: Although the camera it was modeled after was attractive in its own way, I think this camera is just plain UGLY. It is just Gaudy and cheap looking to me. To compare it to a Canon F1 is insulting to the Canon which may have been the best looking camera ever made. This is a chunky, clunky, amateur camera, both crippled and with a high price. I really don't understand who would buy this? I can only guess it is for people who don't know much about cameras.
I bought DF. Gorgeous camera.
caver3d: So, maybe Olympus should sue Sony and Nikon for copying the Olympus retro OM-D design/look for their digital cameras. After all, Olympus came up with the first digital camera with the retro "hump".
Do NIKON hump real and fake in Olympus.
Peter Hayward: I just wish Nikon would fix how 'tabs' work in their dialog boxes in Capture NX. Reported previously over last three years or so. No feedback. Not yet done. So simple to fix. Pity.

Maciek_Leopolis: @Higuel/ "Absolutely no point in taking it unlit!"Except for 'enlighting' that whole Putin's propaganda... :(
Unlit "olimpic flame" sent into space for h(uge) load of money - isn't it a beautiful image of that post-Soviet phenomenon?

1drey: DPR, don't you want to bring on the front page a photograph of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a member of Pussy Riot group - she is missing somewhere in the guts of re-born Gulag, hiding from the relatives, her advocates and public. Against all laws - even damned Putin's laws!
Did DPR got money from Putin's PR agency?
This intelligent replica!Bravo!
Artpt: @ 1drey, I read your link and saw the Pussy Riot documentary....she is committed and they cannot kill her for fear of martyrdom...keep the posts coming with updates...there are many causes and few interested.
Women of this type are called ... Do not tell me how?
