Photography is so-so. The rounding up of all the "stuff" was a major job. Overall, very interesting. One big soft box overhead. It also needs reflectors at bottom and sides. Or 3 big soft boxes, top, bottom left and bottom right. As stated, shot directly overhead would have been better. The logistics would have been harder.
Poor Thom was probably under a tight schedule and did the best he could considering!
Thanks for posting.

Unbelievable, I was just thinking about going to Hungary in early May. Now I will probably go to the Czech republic!

Looks like a woman street photographer or female pervert! When I first looked at it, I said,"what the hell? Which is a good response to street photography. Keep on clicking buddy.

I wonder when The New York Times will finally decide to do the same? People are so visually illiterate and tasteless that we knew it would come to this. Just look at the content of TV. "professional" photography is dying.

Hopefully we will be able to download files immediately from a camera with a n Eye-fi card in it. Hope those Panasonic bozos come out with a Mac version. Don't they know that all "creative" photographers use Macs!

How about shooting tethered ( tied with a usb cable ) to an ipad? That's what I'd like. Instant 10 inch viewable screen. I don't like looking at the back of my camera's 3 inch LCD. Anybody else out there shooting tethered to his computer? Right now I'm using my Apple notebook but would like something smaller and cheaper.

On IMG_9758--- photo in kornea's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Beautiful photo. And it was a good idea to blur ( photoshop, probably ) the background and sides to make the photo less busy.

Great shot Pete. At first I thought it was a happy accident but then I checked out some more of your photos. You have a really good eye and know what you're doing!

Beautiful image! Great composition and mood. I would love to be there. As they say, " f/8 and be there!"

On Depth of Field in Macro Photography article (159 comments in total)

I have to photograph tiny micro chips 1sq.millimeter. I am using a Nikon D200 with Nikon PB-4 bellows ( shift ) and reversed 60mm micro Nikkor. The image doesn't look sharp at f/5.6 so I have to go to F/22 or sometime f/32. Then I get diffraction problems. Seems like I can't win! Should I go to stacking? If so, do I focus using the focusing ring or moving the camera back and forth?

Sometimes I feel like I'm shooting with a 5000mm lens!

Any ideas, comments? Thanks.
Weegee ( sure is a change from my 4 x 5 Graflex)

On Eilean Donan Castle in the Magnificent to Behold challenge (2 comments in total)

It is wonderful! When I was in Scotland ( 1985 ) I fell on this same castle by accident. The problem was that it was then ( Sept. ) backlit and I was there around 2 PM. I tried hard as I could to make a decent shot out of it in Photoshop ( after scanning the the Kodachrome slide ), but never succeeded. You got what I hoped to get! Good job.

On Maroon Bells in the Transparency + Reflection challenge (3 comments in total)

I'm sure it was darker than it looks and the shot doesn't look like it was shot with a super wide angle lens. Beautiful job!
