On photo Sagrada Familia in the Your City - Interior of a monumental building challenge (17 comments in total)

Kind of feel like I'm looking through a kaleidoscope. Excellent!

If someone else is going there, try a round fish eye just for fun.

On article Hands on with the Hasselblad H6D 50c/100c (268 comments in total)

When I was in the Best Buy store a few days ago, I noticed some magnificent looking prints in the Apple section. Probably 50" X 75". No noise and very sharp. Probably made with a Hasselblad. Actually, I'm not sure you can still buy a digital back for a 4 x 5 camera?

On photo Common Kingfishers (2) in the Bird Fight challenge (14 comments in total)

Excellent photo! Everyone is a critic so I'll put in my 2 cents.
I would crop it tighter so that I could better see the exquisite detail!

On photo Rusted Trucks in the Random Items - Challenge 2 challenge (6 comments in total)

The rendition is fine but the sharpness is not quite there. Maybe it's a combination of too slow shutter speed, too low aperture and the characteristics of that " do it all " zoom.

Nonetheless, a beautiful shot with great composition!

On article The long, difficult road to Pentax full-frame (617 comments in total)

I've always had a thing for Pentax. Even though I mostly used Nikon, when I tried the fabulous Pentax LX, I had to have one. I still own it!
It was 3/4 the size of a Nikon F2 and silky smooth to use.

Now I'm more or less with Olympus ( EM-1 ) so switching would pose a problem.

Nice shot overall. I would ( maybe ) color balance the background drawing to white instead of pale yellow.
