Awesome....great story and new to me.
I was away when the changes took place. So I'm just learning how to navigate around the new changes.
I can't upload photos from my Smugmug albums. I've been doing it the same way for years. Now when I attempt to upload a photo, the photo does not show up - just the link to the photo on Smugmug.
What am I doing wrong?
Mel Brown: I wish you would drop the once-trendy format of white-on-black text. It glares and is harder to read than its complement. I will change my mind if you can show me anyone who prints with white ink on black paper...
I find the white on black glaring also. However, the blue that is used above is even more glaring.
Gorgeous! The lighting is fantastic. I used to own this camera and lens!
photocine: We already have such a device. It's called all the IPhone. Also available in other flavors based on Android and such.
Check it out!
Just a comment - on a more personal note.
I am getting old, I guess, but I prefer life a bit more simple. Yes, I own a computer, tablet, cellphone, camera, and a few other gadgets. And I make good use of all of the above.
However, my favorite days are those when I take my camera (Olympus E-P3 - just a camera) and a few lenses, and spend the day in a quiet place in nature - with no interruptions - leaving all the other gadgets and "noise" at home.
I can live without more connectivity, the bells and whistles and the complexity it brings to my quieter life. Having said that, I realize I am far outnumbered here; and admittedly a bit "behind the times" in keeping up with the faster pace of the digital world. It's a matter of preference.
I love Walker Evans Photography - I have a copy of one of his books. Thank you for the article. Walker Evans is also a reminder to me of the power of the "subject" vs perfection within the frame.
Stunning! Perfect image for the description. Well deserved first place. Probably the best b&w image I've seen done with digital.
reginalddwight: Long overdue, DPR. Better late than never. :-)
Thank you DPR! Thanks Simon et al. You've done a great job here - and lots of exciting additions and positive changes to look forward to.
The only negative for me is that I will have to find a way to keep myself from staying around all day. :-)
You can see more on their website.....including an article, video and some more images to play with.
Simon Joinson: And here's a comment to get you started!
Hey there Simon...........this is cool. BTW, thanks for you and all on dpreview for your hard work - and some nice surprises.
Wow! What a beautiful image! I love this. Such a great capture - and so well done! The lighting is perfect - and it is sharp and detailed. Glad I persevered in checking these images out! This was well worth finding.

What a beautiful shot! It put a smile on my face and gives me the inspiration to work harder.
Congratulations! Well deserved.
