  • David, Thanks for posting! I love panoramas. Yours seems to have infinite detail - you can zoom and zoom and zoom. It just needs a slight crop and levelling up to be finished. I had a look at your ...
  • I've often had trouble with posterization in skies when converting to BW and trying for too much 'drama'.  I've found that working with 16 bit TIFF files works better than JPEGs - the pixels can ...
  • GoBucks, First, I see you've just recently joined - so Welcome! The photo is a keeper for sure.  I'd be proud to have it in my collection of turbine shots.  The foreground turbine is a good ...
  • Ken957, New member - welcome! The front element of that lens is probably convex and working just like a close up attachment lens would.  It likely won't be as sharp as a macro lens, but you can ...
  • I'm not really familiar with Yashica cameras, but I think most film SLRs from that era kept the lens wide open for viewing and metering.  The lens is stopped down to the aperture you've chosen ...
  • Replied in C&C please.
    freesty, I had a look at your Flickr page, and the photos are nice - but 35 is too many to comment on in any meaningful way. I'd suggest you pick out two or three that you like and post them here ...
  • Welcome - I see you've just joined. Regarding settings for your Nikon - you might try the Nikon DX forum here . . . . http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1034 Generally to make a black and white image, ...
  • Skeeter, Nice texture study. Some might say there's no subject, but it's OK to break the 'rules'. If everyone followed along, all photos would look pretty much the same. The light is nice - it ...
  • Chris, Welcome to the BW forum. What I like about this is the stillness of the water and the downhill slope of the bridge. The tonal range is missing some highlights, but I think that may add to ...

    LearningForeverIHope, Good idea to do a series of different views of the same subject. I like the first one for its chaos, and the fifth one for it's symmetry and detail.  Very nice!  I think ...
  • uzman1243, In my opinion, on my monitor, the sky tones are lovely - subtle, understated, soft evening colours. The foreground green, though, seems over-saturated and a bit too good to be true. Just ...

    Easy Rider, Good processing for such an extreme contrast scene, in my opinion. ISO 2200 is pretty high, but maybe you had to shoot quickly before the subject(s) disappeared? When viewed large, it ...
  • I love the sharpness! I can read 'Made in Austria' on the blade. That's impressive. The old stone fence is nice, but did you consider cropping the sky out?
  • Alex, Nice Milky Way shots! Looks like you had a nice, clear sky - and a few meteors too. You seem to have solved the usual problems of how to focus, what exposure to use, and how to compose ...
  • Paul, I think your first photo is beautiful - in both BW and colour versions.  The subtle tones are lovely. The second seems way too harsh for such a delicate subject - too much contrast and ...
  • Replied in DQ Vote?
    elleven, If you feel a photo does not meet the rules of a challenge, use the 'Complain' button under the photo and explain to the challenge host what you think is not right. This can be done before ...
  • H2OFowler, Pretty good shot of the moose!   You did well to get such a closeup shot.  I like the eye looking up liike that - the animal seems to be aware, but trusting. On my screen, the colour ...

    Visibe at the top of the photo is the polar ice cap, and through the center, the mysterious, so-called 'bubble zone'.
