Chimere's recent activity

  • No rules ? I see plenty, half of them broken. Two subjects, the main in the middle, horizon in the middle (granted, positive breaks). One more not broken rule: diagonal lines leading to the main ...
  • Nothing special, a keeper, but have done worse, the best I could make of the given the situation, showing the fun and emotion of dance. What do you find on bad in it ? Chimere
  • The male might be a good dancer, and we are not interested if he is handsome, or not. The camera caught him in an very unfortunate pose. Specially for "Tango". "Tango" is a closed formation dance ...
  • Yes, you confirm well that we are on different pages with regard to photography, which should give fertile ground for beneficial discussions. Finally, we do this - CC's ? - perhaps to learn from ...
  • Replied in Camera Question
    It will be very difficult to point you in the right direction, unless having own experience with the the situations you are facing. Some concerns I have off hand: Small may not be beautiful in your ...
  • Have to join the others with my five cents worth of wisdom. Unfortunately I find not much good to say. The essences of Tango - emotion, motion, closeness, protest, rebellion ? - are lacking. The ...
  • Rail and stacking: good idea. Thanks for adding this topics on. Can you recommend any (free, user friendly) software for stacking ? Any specific features one needs on the rail ? I am sure of us ...
  • That and the previous post are appropriately placed - thank you. Many of us will agree. However, this forum should give no more audience to egomaniacs who - with best intentions to do good, they ...
  • Replied in Marbles
    Quite a beautiful collection you have assembled at the pinterest site: a window to an exquisite world of wonders in shapes and colors. Also a statement for the quality and usefulness of P&S cams. ...
  • Replied in 42 st photo
    Wrong forum ? Canon forums may be the better choice ? Also the title of post could be more informative. Chimere

    Tom: Actually, here we do not agree. See definition of "flattery" below. The by now most beautiful creation of yours, posted here, imho, may have gone under unnoticed in that sudden onslaught of ...
  • Tom:  this one is really beautiful - hard to describe the emotions it creates. The beauty of the the expression of the face, and the dream like dissolution around it. Perfect. Almost missed this ...
  • Thanks, really nice work. Very delicate and tasteful. Keep on posting. Never mind the quadrupeds. Chimere
  • Inflammatory speech does not facilitate resolving issues. Much to the contrary - not recommended if you have high blood pressure, or in environments with loose gun laws. While there is plenty of ...
  • As far as I have experience, FF is more a "want" than a "need". Instead honing into how to make better pictures should be on the top of the list. Consider how much IQ one gets these days from small ...
  • My response was to Tom and not to "God". Honestly, what is it what upsets you ? not competition ? I have seen much worse art hanging in galleries, some of it paid for with tax money. Tom's "art" ...
  • People have the right to express opinions. The way it is done will give insight to the authors value as a person. Never mind them, keep on creating your kind of pearls, Tom! Chimere
  • Steve, your first reply may the better choice. Lightning bolts are generally of short duration. Such  trigger device - add on the camera response delay - might miss a good portion of the front of ...
  • To shoot indoors, concerts, you will need a bright prime lens (f-2.8 or 1.8 ?), or a bright zoom if you have deep pockets, besides a camera which does not produce a lot of "noise" at high ISO. ...
  • No tricks needed: three ways to do it: When posting a message, in the command line the following rectangular icon will appear, suggesting three methods of including pictures, when you "click" it: S ...
