  • If my memory serves me right the cat picture had a distracting colour on the right. Served up in monochrome, it lends a different flavor altogether. Nicely done. And Mongkut himself would have been ...
  • John If my eyes serve me right, especially with the first image, compressing most of the available data into the mid tones will yield the look I see you have presented. In my mind, the process ...
  • Brilliantly articulated.
  • I think the people that sell us stuff have done a great job convincing us that sharpness is the be all and end all. I swallowed that line hook and sinker for years but kept wondering why I ...
  • A true gentleman you are ... and a rare commodity, especially in cyberspace. Many thanks. I shall await your followup post. Again, thank you. David
  • Firstly, thank you to everyone for their input in the thread. I too am considering the Elite version to see what I can add to my LR5 workflow especially with deformation, distortion from UWA ...

    The first image is wonderfully framed and lit. Not your standard pose or posture but it worked well. The others did not resonate as much with me. Had a look through your stuff. I like your style. ...
  • These are nice enough images though I tend to agree with another poster that they lack a key element (the context) on account of your framing or cropping. A little more of the surrounding ...
  • I too thought the sharpening took something away in terms of the original magical quality I saw. Not better or worse in a sense but it changed the feel ..... pour moi! I am not a big fan personally ...
  • Clearly, the skies are the attention and given that, I would have thought a portrait orientation on the first image would serve to accentuate the point especially with a 4 to 1 sky to land ratio ...
  • +1 Especially on the aesthetics of taking the white all the way to the edge. Mehhh ..... been there done to death. I too thought trees better darker for the same reason on the second. Like your stuff.
  • It's a lovely scenic for sure but as a photograph, it is lacking a point of interest for my eyes to go to. It can be a difficult thing when using wide angle lenses for shots like these and to ...

    The prop image is wonderfully shot and treated. You have really found your groove with this b&w treatment. I for one invariably enjoy your offerings. More! David
  • Paul You have served up a delightful potpourri of images; the colour, variation of DOF, the fun factor comes across well. But I feel the strongest images are the two simpler ones in #3 which I just ...

    ....... there ARE many shots of this tree in cyberspace; though I confess not many as well composed and framed as this one. By the way, the rippling of the water surface adds another dimension to ...

    My colleague's 11 year old just inherited my NEX7 and I was just showing her the ropes this afternoon. Not made with a Leica David

    The light play is simply divine on this one. Well seen and captured. David
  • Firmware updated fine. Focusing peaking has blue and green color options now ... but can anyone really employ this feature to any effect in real shooting. Mine comes up soooooo faint, its barely ...
  • Silly me. Of course you are absolutely correct in your assertion Kostas. I only have to look at the real business world I inhabit to know that what you say is oh so true :-D David
