Only goes to show one doesn't need a big fancy camera to capture a classic cliche. ;)

From the country of Rene Magritte...following in the master's footsteps.
Nicely done.

All this will help sites like Zenfolio & PhotoBucket tremendously, which is a good thing.

Teila Day: People getting their under garments all bunched up over such a trite (but true-in-context) statement. What's amazingly sad is the number of photographers that haven't awakened from dreaming and can't understand that what she said (within context) is exactly correct.

Just like there aren't any professional cobblers today r-e-l-a-t-i-v-e-l-y speaking, even though using our common sense we know that there are individuals that still professionally make shoes on their own. . . but using our common sense, we understand what is meant within the context being spoken.

The number of professional photographers generating specialized work that cannot be easily and readily recreated in volume by the general public has been drastically reduced since digital photography became a mainstay. General photography is easily generated by the public today for cheap, and is why general photography in most locales is not *generally* as profitable as once was.

Too many people devoid of common sense.

None of which has anything to do with defining a "pro" account.

On Photoshop Gradient Tool: Blending Images article (223 comments in total)

Funny, I thought the article was about HOW to use gradient layers to modify images, not WHAT kinds of modifications should be allowed.
Photography seems to be turning into one more fundamentalist religion, at least on DPR.

On Hands-on with Nikon V2 article (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I just don't get this camera. There is nothing about it that makes me want to buy it.

I guess Nikon should shut down because they didn't give you whiners a pretty Hello Kitty camera you could love.

How long can these contention-filled "challenges" last?
Boring topics are no help.

On Mobile Arts Festival touted as world’s largest article (21 comments in total)
In reply to:

azmish: The expression of 15 minutes of fame has now (due to technology) become 2.3456 seconds and ANOTHER opportunity to market a product.

YAWN

Ha ha, so true, but in such tiny splinters of time I think the word "peep" would be more appropriate than "fame".

On Review: Nokia 808 PureView article (354 comments in total)

The problem with a review like this is that it focuses on the camera feature of a phone that is otherwise receiving pretty mediocre reviews. Just read Wired Magazine's article.

Then there's the cost. $650+ unlocked on Amazon.

On Sensuality ... At a Glance. challenge (16 comments in total)

Most disappointing challenge I have seen so far on DPR...& that's saying something. Nothing remotely approaching sensuality here. Sensuality does not mean cute, pretty or "hot".

A big part of the blame probably should be put on the heavy-handed rules & guidelines.

Just embarrassing.
