Waimak Stud: Um... Priorities? A country that doesn't yet want people to have equal freedoms under the law wants to send an Olympic torch into space? That doesn't make you look great, it kinda just makes you look like d1cks.
I'm not an American, and I would probably be saying the same thing if they were doing it too. It just seems a silly distraction. I do take back I the d1ck part, because that seems directed at the people of Russia, not the leadership, and I know they don't make these decisions. I'm sorry.I'm sure if the people of Russia had the choice, they would prefer more respect for women, a repeal of the law that stops people talking about homosexuality, less threatened freedom of speech etc rather than a moonwalking torch.

JordanAT: I shot FM2 and F3HP in college (the paper's stable), but when I scraped the money together I got an F4s. The molded frame just fits in my hand better, so the styling is a negative. I LOVE the manual dials, and would have considered this as a replacement for my D3 - even giving up the 1/8000 shutter - until I read this:
"If your CPU lens has an aperture it must be locked to the smallest aperture 'auto' setting, and you cannot use the ring directly to set aperture.
Boom - no sale. I prefer to shoot in aperture mode most of the time, and my left hand still cradles the camera, ready to swap between focus, zoom, and aperture. With the D3, I feel like I'm missing part of my hand not to have an aperture ring, and this doesn't bring that back.
I agree, that was a bit of a surprise. A lower resolution sensor doing no video for more money that a similarly sized, sealed and autofocussed body, but touting full compatibility with old manual focussed lenses, and yet not even even doing that as expected? What is there to love? The manual controls? I love them, but I am willing to look upon them at a distance for the sake of convenvience. Please don't get me wrong, I LOVE the manual controls, and have longed for this camera for many years, but also have a family to look after and know that more money spent on good lenses equals better pictures. I am more than troubled right now.
Stealthy Ninja: I don't think anyone is going to do much of a critique on his work.
I'll just say, it's nice he has a way of communicating. :)
Actually, good use of negative space, leading lines, rule of thirds. His pictures stand up to critique even. A good heartwarming story.
Nathebeach: Very nice action shot of the guy jumping the railing. Looks like they have one, maybe two bright lights on the subject. Seems suspiciously well lit for a night club shot. Do you suppose that Nokia is trying to show their camera in a good light with a pro photographer? Hey I can't criticize that; I would do the same if I were them. My point is I cannot wait to see what it can do in poor lighting. Time will tell.
If they were doing that, I would have expected them to get rid of the red-eye and maybe clean his shoes up a bit.
How is it that an American following a Japanese meme is "proof that it is evolving to a new level?" In what way? Because as far as I can see the Japanese school girls were doing it way better than the guy in the first picture. Far more effort and imagination had gone into their images.
It's flawed because it didn't ask which was taken by which camera, it said "Which photo is better?" Of course some working photos have been taken with good equipment. Then it showed a picture of two fat blokes building something versus a beach sunset. 90% of my choices were for the canon 5d III not the iphone but on the subject and beauty, not the quality.
It's not a camera showdown at all, it's a picture comparison and compares some stupid choices.
Lupti: Nice idea...but the site is so awfully slow, it feels like it has loaded completely when they take their next photograph in 2017...
Actually my browser only loaded the first 2 and the last photo so I just had a good laugh and gave up.
Sorry, I never realised that I got any replies from this. Thanks, this has cheered me up knowing that someone at least noticed, sadly my wife doesn't like the shot at all.
I was so bummed when I scored so low that I never looked at this entry again, but I got comments, and they are pretty supportive. Hey, I really appreciate, thanks!
I half expect to see him drop down from the fire escape in this pic.
Only 145th? You were robbed mate, gorgeous shot.
I love what you did here! You presented so much mystery and created something completely different! I would love to know how you did this!
