  • No fair Leechy Unfair advantage you do possess - a Nokiablad and a pair of great eyes to use with it. This is fine photography. Truly. I think we all need a reminder the gear obsession is all fine ...
  • Superb image Steve. I can almost feel the energy of the storm. Not sure if you meant to compress the tonal range (flatten your histogram) during processing but I feel the image would be better on ...
  • I like this set Dan .... the use of negative space in the last 3 especially effective for me. The second image of the wall is well framed to create a sense of something more than the components in ...
  • I'm with JD on the APO I have only shot with it as a loaner and the one thing that grabbed my attention the most was the biting sharpness across the field from centre to edge. A very flat field low ...
  • I never knew the 50 APO zooms from 2-50 (or 2-16 if using the other scale). Any wonder they are asking so much money for it. And I thought the Tri-Elmars were good! So pleased I switched to Leica. ...
  • this first one is delightfully framed and your dodging and burning helps to focus the eye in addition to the leading line of the fence. Not sure what happened with the sky - I am seeing a banding ...
  • Replied in OMG, Tony
    You are right, partially at least; I did as you suggested and the answer came to me but within 12 seconds. On life and the universe and all things Leica. However, I am sworn to secrecy, never to ...
  • Replied in Apologies to OP
    Didn't mean to hijack your thread regarding the LR6 upgrade link. As for the images you posted, my observations mirror yours in terms of 6 being a tad darker but we are splitting hair here. ...
  • Replied in Lightroom 6
    I just tried the same link I posted, Rodrigue This is what I got Am I missing something? David
  • Replied in Lightroom 6
    Here's the well hidden upgrade path for perpetual license users LR6 upgrade for non CC users CLICK ON buy and change it to UPGRADE and it should be sweet from there. $79 smackaroos for the privilege. ...
  • I love the portrait Daniel, she has a smile you warm to. My first impression was that the framing is too tight at the top. I sat with it a bit and have not changed my mind. And I am not enamored ...

    Rodrigue They don't want you to find it I believe. It is there. I will forward link when I get a chance later. David

    Hi Joe My daughter also harbors ambitions to be in a band and the years at university might well see that come to fruition. Fingers crossed for her. I shoot with both the 240 and the Sony you ...
  • Replied in Fabulous!
    I agree. Especially your courage to let your blacks go true black. Makes for a punchy image. David
  • Replied in Switch...
    i think you did very well with the Blackberry Playbook, Luego Very good black in the tonal response. I like it a lot. I didn't think the colours added a great deal on this occasion. David
  • Bought mine when the M8 came out but I haven't used it as much as I thought I would have for portraits. Perhaps the frame lines are a tad tight on a 0.72 VF or it is a little longer than my ...
  • A delightful perspective for sure. Environmental portraiture done well I say. I do have to confess I am not a fan of the processing you employed but that is besides the point. David Thanks for ...
  • I love these kind of imagery with all that negative space serving only to draw the eye to where you wish. But I do concur that the background could be better as the door frames are distracting. David
  • I only meant to look at. I just had this image of Solzhenitsyn popped into my head when I looked at the image the first time. You know, maybe it is in your revelation itself but the gentleman's ...
  • This gets my vote as well for the same reasons. So true what they say - you've got to see it in your mind's eyes first before you can record it onto the digital sensor. Nothing wrong with your ...
