On Behind the Shot: Clouds over Skagsanden article (117 comments in total)

First off, thanks to you Erez for sharing a beautiful piece of art and just as importantly, how you got there. Apologies for some of the rubbish being written in this thread. Who cares about the edges of a lens fully in a cropped image shot at f16? It's a work of art, not a piece of realism. So it can't be too blue, or too red. Finally Erez, thanks for taking the time to engage with some of us. BTW, If I had an image 25% as good as this, I'd be very proud!

I watched the whole thing and really enjoyed it. I wish that some people would remember that photography is also about the experience as well as the gear. it was great to see the DPR guy with a pro out in the field. More of these pleeze!

Danny: Very beautiful, but these kind of images could have been done much easier imho, studio shots with some wind and wires, then post processing, if done well no-one will ever tell the difference.

I honestly don't get people who think this not very interesting. the video on his blog is really fascinating and there will be more about the shoot and techniques. The master shot for this work is in the film "Night of the Hunter". One of the moist haunting scenes in a movie.

M Jesper: And then they forgot the best part.
Throwing the bouquet with the camera in it !
Thought that was the idea ...

Likewise, I expected it to either be thrown or on a bedside table that night :-)

On Accessory Review: Manfrotto Solo VI DSLR Holster Bag article (96 comments in total)

I use a Domke multi lens bag and don't get these single lens bags. Probably my fault though.
If you have a single body and single lens, why put in a bag at all?

Hmm, I guess DPReview Inc Corp wants to grab yet anther small chunk to them selves

I have no rational objection, but somehow feel that making me faceless is not right.

I'll stay that way - sad :-(
