On Elevated Parking in the My best picture this week challenge (1 comment in total)

This has never happened to me before....Your composition of this shot makes me dizzy. There is something about the composition that has my eyes frantically circling the scene and I feel a little motion sickness comning on. Interesting Picture!

ngollan: Repeat after me: an LCD can never be a viable alternative to an OVF, no matter how bad, in bright daylight.

Unless it's a transflective display, and I don't see anyone using those anymore.

R.I.P., usability, you are sorely missed.

Well to be fair the p series and the g series models that had both swivel screens and viewfinders wern't that large to begin with. The P series were a little larger than the canon but they were reasonably compact for the camera you got. Yes the viewfinders arnt fantastic but still very usefull. If size is such a big issue then buy a smaller compact. Both the Nikon P7700 and Canon G15 are disspointments in my opinion as they left out crucial components that made them so popular with both enthusiasts and semi-pros. The enthusiasts will more than likely by the P7700 because of the swivel screen and the pro or traditionalist will more than likely buy the G15 for the viewfinder.

On Canon Powershot G15 Preview preview (246 comments in total)

I am a big Nikon fan but have always preferred the Canon G series to the Nikon P series. Nikons new P7700 is the first P series that I would have bought instead of the Canon regardless of the slightly slower lens but Nikon Decided to exclude a viewfinder and have a fully articulated swivel screen instead. That unfortunately is a dealbreaker for me.I can live without the swivel screenbut the a viewfinder in my opinion is an absolute essential when shooting in certain conditions. Canon have lost the swivel screen but retain the viewfinder so for Loyal Nikon fan I will unfortunately have to buy the Canon instead.

looks like an amazing cameraand there is no doubt in my mind that it will deliver incredible images. I was allready to pre-order one untill I saw the exclusion of a View finder. That is unfortunately a deal breaker for me as a pro. This is the ideal camera to use as a second or even third camera when photographing events as it size is not too intrusive and you have all the control of an SLR. It would have made a nice addition to my SLR cameras but unfortunitely the lack of a viewfinder is a crucial mistake in my opinion and will cost Nikon a a fair amount of sales from traditionalists like myself who insist on having a viewfinder.

I the equipment sales manager of a Kodak Express in South Africa and speaking purely from a quality point of view, Kodak's product quality has taken a remarkable dive in the last 5-10 years. Their obsessuion with delivering cheap and poorly manufactured products is severly damaging their reputation and is impacting on their market share. Obviously beeing a Kodak franchisee I am obliged to push the sale of these poor products. On average, over 40 % of the Kodak cameras that I sell are returned because of manufacturing defects. Over this christmas period I sold 70 Kodak c123's (their supposedly water-proof sports camera). Since January 1st I have had 23 comebacks due to water damage.

Kodak needs to improve there product quality so that they can restore the consumers confidence in their brand. If they arent willing to do that, they may just see that share price fall further and further!

Good article. Im sure many Photographers who would also like to call themselves artists will really appreciate it. For the rest of you who think photography is all about what gear you have and how well you use it, well im sorry this article wont appeal to you.

In reply to:

Mister Mike: I see from your gallery that shooting from this location is a place you like. Of your other shots this one is the best. Perhaps a little less sky, but then again I'm not sure. Clearly you've worked at your vision for this and this is excellent. I'd rate it 4.5

Thank you!! I really do enjoy this spot. Its just a short walk from where I live so It has been a spot I have been working on for a while. I have tried many different times of day and I have tried may different compositions and On this evening I belive I couldnt have asked for better light but I still think I havent quite got the perfect composition yet but thats what I really love about this spot, I can go back time and time again.
Thank you very much for your comment!

On About Turn in the "Comments Required" challenge (22 comments in total)

Framed slightly over to the right would have filled the frame from left to right and would have made for a more pleasing image for me. Th gap on the left is a little distracting for me. Otherwise I cant see much wrong with the shot. Love the choice of B&W and the border you chose also adds a nice touch. Good work!

Definitely shoud have exposed for the streets to get more detail and less shadow in the foreground.
