Johannes Zander: Act of Genocide!
Oh now, since it was the US it must be an humanitarian act of libaration in the name of freedom.

Way to go off on a political rant on a photography website /smh

EssexAsh: "photographer Art Wolfe has built perhaps one of the strongest brands in his field."

Who? Guess his brand could be better. Whoever he is.

LOL Seriously? You've never heard of Art Wolfe? He's one of the most famous photographers of our time and has been for quite some time now. Go watch his TED talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Vo9BqV0x2o

deviantART has been doing this roughly for 2 years now with both a RM and RF structure. You can actually upload your own contract and everything and you set the price. It's pretty slick.

iAPX: Adobe's award too, juding of the huge presence of photoshopped photos (some seems to are real photography, but it's a minority!)

hate to tell you but everything is run through Photoshop and I grantee ya that pretty much every single one of these photos was shot in RAW. "Real photography"? Unless you are shooting a Polaroid, real photography in your eyes has never existed. Even during the age of film, Kodachrome & Velvia which saturated colors existed. Ansel himself edited his images extensively in the darkroom. The camera is incapable of capturing the dynamic range of what the human eye sees....editing your images is not only fundamental but required in the digital age if you don't want to have something that looks like it was taken at the family BBQ on a Sunday

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (795 comments in total)
In reply to:

mvmv: Reviewer forgot importance of AF. A7r has the worst AF in FF world (- RX1). In conclusion it should had been pointed that camera is not for sport, action or low light.

I hate to tell ya but it most certainly is for low light, so much so that many shooters who specialize in dark night sky photography have switched to the A7r

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

It all depends on what you shoot in the end. For wildlife subjects, obviously the Fuji is a no go. Mirrorless is awesome but it lacks the focal length of dslr's for things like sports and wildlife. I have yet to see any long exposure star shots done with the system though I am sure it is out there

JC999: Any opinions on how it compares to Zenfolio?

Been with zenfolio for years and love it & they haven't screwed their customers like smugmug has either with price increases.

thomas2279f: You could pick up a Nikon version I/II new or second hand plus a good body like D300s/D800,etc plus some other Nikon lens gems and still have change...

lol Because pro level glass produces average image quality? Come on, I don't shoot either Nikon or Canon and know a fanboy comment when I see it

Yes because what the world needs is more people like Welly who don't know the difference between tone mapping and HDR :|

D Sharp: They need to get rid of the pinterest button or at least give users an opt out. Putting the "please steal my images" button on the site was a bad move.

Why? pinterest is here to say and if you didn't see the Bing announcement here you go http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/bing-adds-pinterest-integration-letting-you-pin-images-directly-from-search-results-updates/ So, your only workaround? Get off the internet and post nothing.

vFunct: Basically some of the dullest, most horrible, over-processed imagery in the world.

Nobody in 500px will ever be represented by a real art gallery.

Ryan McGinley? As boring as vanilla ice cream. I mean seriously... http://ryanmcginley.com/animals-2/ come on. And this? http://ryanmcginley.com/photographs/ Is that suppoosed to be "good"? As far as Crewdsen is concerned, much better and I am a huge fan of his work. That being said, you made a statement which has no validity. Truth is, many on 500px are represented in and currently showcase in actual galleries. I don't have to "look" at actual galleries as I have been a member of several. let's not making bad sweeping statements which hold no basis reality, k?

I am sorry but I am not the biggest fan of 500px but what you said here with "Nobody in 500px will ever be represented by a real art gallery" is awfully ignorant. As in extremely. Some of the most recognized nature photographers around are on 500px and display their work all the time in real galleries.

on and on it goes. Please, before making a sweeping statement like that, know what you are talking about before hand.

In reply to:

photo nuts: Great review.

Decent camera. Not as light as one hopes for the SLT design, but acceptable.

Took a peek at Sony store for some lenses... Ewwwww... far too limited. Cannot compare to the m43 arsenal, much less Canikon range.

Good effort. Try harder next time Sony, especially your lens department.

Comparing a m43 to a FF? Really? That is a complete apples to oranges comparison. As far as having limited lenses, the only thing which is limited would be lenses for wildlife and other than that, they are loaded. http://www.cameralabs.com/lenses/Sony_Alpha_DSLR_lens_guide_range.shtml

The most under rated photo software on the planet. ACDSee Pro can compete straight away with Lightroom.

I don't see this as a step back at all, especially given the lens on the camera.

In reply to:

brent collins: "Mediocre JPEG processing with mushy detail and visible artifacts" does not equal a score of 78. MANY people shoot only jpeg.

I have never understood why some people don't use their cameras to their full capability. If I am dropping a grand towards a set up, I am shooting it at it's highest potential. Perhaps for those who buy a dslr only to shoot JPEG, a P&S would have been a better choice.
