jonrobertp: What boring PC images. Sad.

PC

I read that as Personal Computer. I can't see how any of these images even graced a Mac. TIC :-)

nicolaiecostel: Number 6 looks like it's made with an iPhone and instagramed. 9 is not a landscape, it's a bloody tree and nr. 8 and 7 are architectural photographs. 1 is inexplicable, nr. 2 is a picture of a lady taking a hike. I mean, c'mon !

I concur nicolaicostel

Swingaweigh: These awards are a total farce. I see far more worthy images on flickr on a daily basis. Are we supposed to marvel at these "landscapes?" No credibility when architecture is called a landscape. What are these folks smoking?

I concur.

cgarrard: Don't let judges tell you the value of your photos- let buyers tell you. :)

I'm not really blown away, but these are all very good images. Whether or not they deserve to be front page news etc., who knows.

If the photog's that made these are selling them, then to me that is testament to their value.

Carl

This is not to suggest that there is anything wrong with work that DOES NOT sell either.

russbarnes: I find it best to try and stay away from photographers' rage on here these days. My thoughts on the winning image are on my website here instead:

http://russbarnes.co.uk/blog/2014/11/review-mark-littlejohn-landscape-photographer-of-the-year-2014

I have a contrary view.

I like the image, but would not have chosen it myself. I would love to judge a competition like this to see what kind of job I would do.

UnitedNations: People who do not understand the value of these photos do not know art.
These are not supposed to be those superficially amazing but completely boring & shallow photos you see everyday on Flickr with thousands of up votes.
These photos show the generally high level of Photographic art which seems to be the norm in U.K.

"People who do not understand the value of these photos do not know art"

A classic case of the King's/Emperor's new clothes.

What a load of utter pretentious pseudo intellectual arty Codswallop!

Wye Photography: I like the ones with the big triangles in them.

Dear papa natal darling, I am British. We don't have moms. Mothers and mums yes. Mams if you are Welsh or come from the North. But, my friend, never mom. Mom is the preserve of the Colonies, it should stay rightfully where it belongs and has no place in the Queens English.

No Moms please, we are British.

@papa natas,

010) I don't need pills.
011) Finally, all things being equilateral...

Just a Photographer: Meaby it would be better if Queen Elisabeth accepts the fact that the UK isn't a worldpower anymore and that the days of colonization are over....

When it comes down to these pictures better to be humble then to show off, of how it once was...

The world would have been a better place if the German, er, I mean English Crown still ruled the Earth.

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (377 comments in total)
In reply to:

foto2021: Two excellent, objective reviews. Very refreshing.

I have been a Leica M user since the 1970s and am definitely a fan of the M Series. I currently use an M9.

I don't see the X as a true Leica.

It doesn't compete strongly on image quality because the Sony-made 16 MP sensor it uses means it lags behind (for example) the 24 MP APS-C competition from the Nikon D3300, which costs a fraction of the price.

The true competition for the X is the Fujifilm X100T which is, ironically, more like a true Leica than the Leica X. The X100T has the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor and a superb f/2 lens that actually delivers the aperture engraved on it at all focusing distances. Image quality is outstanding and the hybrid viewfinder is nigh on unbeatable.

If you want a true Leica experience, forget the overpriced Leica X. Buy the X100T. It really is a no-brainer.

Alternatively, the Nikon D3300 and D5300 are fine DSLRs with outstanding 24 MP Sony sensors. It is great to have these choices.

Perhaps Leica should re-badge the X100T.

groucher: All this floccinaucinihilipilification. I consider that you oiks are just plain jealous. My friend Rupert has one of these and I have a Brikk Df. They are absolutely spiffing and take lovely jps (whatever they are). Much better than your average camera and they go with our iphone 6 thingies.

I say groucher old bean. This Gentleman uses the Leica camera. Actually a 1958 Leica M2 with a 5cm 2.8 Elmar. Top hole what!

Such a shame the chaps down at Hasselblad couldn't put on a good show and actually pull it orf.

In reply to:

PPierre: I think the 7th one is amazingly well thought: good atmosphere, good story, and a topic we never talk about/feel ashamed to talk about though it exists and is quite common. I like this kind of photos !

and there's me thinking picture seven is an old bloke and an old bird looking out of the window commenting on the weather before they get into bed with a hot chocolate to aid a good night's sleep.

I am obviously reading the wrong thing into it unless you lot are complete pervs.

Some men and some Hasselblad's went to the moon. This one didn't.

How could any sane person not believe men went to the moon? Oh! That's because they are not exactly sane.

Amazing piece of history.

ogl: This zoom is pure commercial product, firstly. And only then - it's photo tool.

You are so right! Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus etc are not in existence for the purpose of bringing us great gear.

They exist only to make a profit.

In reply to:

jreihsen: I have no likes/dislikes between MS, Apple and Adobe. But, I am looking at cutting my subscription costs. I have a 365 account and the unlimited storage with it. When Apple goes to their new Photo app, I will have to pay $4/m. So I am considering a migration from Aperture to MS.

I now have ~10,000 images in Aperture which occupies > 120 gb.

I guess Elements (Lightroom has gotten too expensive) would be the way to go, if I could put my photos in Onedrive, but the question is: How do I make the transition?

I seems like I would loose so much work. I have copied my faces to tags, but wouldn't I loose all of my edits?

I would love any suggestions.

@ jreihsen

Sorry, but I have to mention, it's lose not loose. Aspergers, can't help it.

I was going to say use Lightroom because it is only £100. Then I had the foresight to check the Adobe UK and US site and from the brief look am I right in saying that now it is only available on subscription?

No! Just had another look to check. Tucked away in the menu you can buy the full version of Lightroom as a standalone for $149

$149 too expensive?

I think that is very good value.

Sorry you did ask.

Besides copying 120Gb to the cloud will take quite some time. OK, here in the UK it will take an ice age. You have a fast connection?

Also, I would wait until Apple release their new Photo app, you may be able to retain some degree, if not all, of your Aperture edits. Have to look into that.
