On Readers' Showcase: Sarnim Dean article (43 comments in total)

I enjoy the stories of the people behind the camera as much as the images. And I mean that in a good way. Keep it up!

Lovely portfolio, Sarnim.

Beautiful architectural details!

The processing sounds tough.

InTheMist: What a sad day in history.

Those comments made me remember where I was when the news came.

On Flickr brings back Pro account option article (72 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: It appears regular users won't get unlimited storage anymore. And they'll get ads. Which is a cunning way of getting people into subscribing Pro accounts. Oh well.
On the other hand, subscribers who had Pro accounts before Flickr gave unlimited storage were basically paying to get the same as those who had free accounts, which was not right. As the old saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right.
The benefits of being a Pro user are now: 1) unlimited storage; 2) highly fastidious stats (irrelevant); 3) free shipping on Flickr photo merchandising (US only: can't be bothered); 4) ad-free viewing (which is good: ads can be annoying); 5) 20% discount on Adobe CC (meh!); and 6) the subscription fee will remain unchanged for two years (I assume it will double after that period). Better start thinking about a website; chances are it'll be less expensive...

I understand the frustration of getting less, but has anyone ever come close to the 1TB limit? It's JPEG after all.

66GTO: This would then make me ask, what is better than Flickr? PBase seems to have been left by the wayside. What is the better solution?

Is Smugmug also a social network where you like/fav images and friend people? Never used it. I thought it was a blog or website hosting thing.

On Flickr brings back Pro account option article (72 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan Siegel: Flickr is still, in my opinion, the best photo sharing service on the net. There are a lot of other services that have a similar offering, but their UX and UI are dated and most are not mobile friendly. I was saddened when the Flickr community fought back against the changes to the interface and service, a lot of complaining. When you put the old version of Flickr side by side with the latest version, there really is no contest. The latest version of Flickr is a really slick design with good support. Flickr was the gateway for me to really start learning more about photography and meet other photographers to learn from them. It's so much better now than before.

Yep The usability of 500px is a disaster in comparison with an inconsistent UI.

There are several different ways that photos are presented, with at least three different places that you have to click to 'like' or 'fav'. And one view you can only fav, not like.

It's ridiculous. And don't get me started on the app, where you can't even view groups.

Steven Blackwood: I don't wish to be snarky but would it kil DPR to finally deep-six Flash? Many of us use mobile devices and Flash doesn't work. Yeah, yeah, it works on Android or at least some of them but Adobe is no longer developing for mobile. It's very laborious to click on pictures one at a time. hTML5, guys.

Oh Barney! You getting my hopes up. I spend hours in trains with only my iPhone and DPR to keep me company.

Nice set!

On Capture One Pro 8 software review article (290 comments in total)
In reply to:

Daniel4: How does Capture One compare to DxO, in general and the noise reduction in particular?

I think DxO needs to come out with a proper catelog/rating/sorting/tagging app plus editing like CaptureOne and Lightroom.

With a good UI and well thought out database behind, it would be killer.

windmillgolfer: Excellent portfolio, a well travelled photographer, many superb images: great light and composition.

Totally agree.

And the interview was almost as entertaining!

Cool showcase.

Roland Karlsson: So, I have read several comments here. If you say it is fantastic and imaginative you get applauded. If you say you do not like it or it that is quite common, then you are jumped at and someone will demand you show your own imaginative work. The thread itself is more interesting than the pictures. Or maybe not, the thread is actually quite predictive.

Now, regarding the images. I think the first is good. It is unexpected. Why both a flame and a scissor? Makes you think.

The rest are cute. Nothing wrong with them. Nothing special either. The light bulb is a good performance though. Nice that he got the reflections correct.

I wrote "I don't like it" because "it's not photography" - it is digital art, and that's fine, but it's not why I come here, and not what I like.

Not really photography to me.

I don't like it.

samfan: Nice tech but still and ungodly ugly camera and now it's also big. Good thing Oly makes nice and small cams, hopefully the M10 successor will be good.

Hasselblad Luna?

Cokin was always the budget brand. I hope they're stepping up their game.

I count this as a good thing.

I'm glad these jackals don't pixel peep my photos after i shoot them.

At least I shoot Nikon so the shadows don't fall apart when they do.

Horshack: Hotrods, women, and airplanes - that about sums up the target buyer in the prosumer camera market :)

Pretty much summarizes my reason for being.

Just add photography.
