Someone will come along and criticize.

When they do, look at their gallery first.

Jurka: Those pics are empty.

Great shots, Jurka, but you must have had some instruction and criticism from peers. Did they call any of your early work "empty"?

You see where I'm going with this?

Cane: Every time I find a Camera I think I will like, the dreaded, "AF is very slow" comment rears it's ugly head. I am tired of slow AF. When will this be a thing of the past and not a line in most new camera reviews still in 2014?

Battery life too.

A proper mirror for me.

Magnum photographer Rene Burri died today, sadly.

He photographed many of the personalities of 20th century and contributed greatly to both documentary and street photography.

Google him, his Magnum portfolio is here:

@Karroly It's obvious that some thought and timing went into many of these. I think "empty" is overly harsh.

Using your description, could not Henri Cartier-Bresson's shot, nearly universally heralded as "the decisive moment" not be called "dude jumping off some wood"?

Sure, none of these are a Cartier-Bresson, but I think this place is "empty" of constructive criticism, having been replaced by passive aggression and a complete lack of a modicum of tact.

Exactly.

Samba86: I personally like the first and the last, like the mood and composition on both photos. I can find more or less interistings the other ones.
But, please, the second one?! A person walking with a plastic shopping bag?!?! Don't try to sell me that this is an impressive photo...

It's rare that someone comes up with a totally unique composition that didn't originate from before photography was even invented, though, isn't it?

I agree that it's not the strongest in the group, but I can't dismiss it just because it's a guy with a shopping bag. There is thought here, and a certain eye for details and execution as well.

Forget, for a moment, the subject. Instead, look at the the interplay between shapes and colours.

Awesome shots, everyone. The only one that imparts no emotion for me is no. 1.

TomHudsonVisual: Shots supplied by Ami Vitale, a.k.a. a Nikon ambassador on location in Puerto Rico? Should this more accurately read "Nikon supplied us with these shots?"

@Rishi LOL! Check out my Flickr account for some shots that were obviously taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson.

gskolenda: OH My God, let's just go backwards to preserve history! Italy needs to stick to Fashion, Cars and Motorcycles. I just don't get it

Sometimes I feel like a nice hotel, sometimes I want to go back to basics and do some camping.

Sometimes I like to shoot film.

I consider both "roughing it" and both enjoyable.

I've seen this story a couple of times and every time I comment because it's frankly awesome and inspiring.

reedjecdf: a lot of noise for nothing, photokina had the excitement of an old fart, it seem like everybody's run out of steam. lt could be now time to go back to 4x5 film with home processing, the digital bananas petered out; resurrect the mamiya rz 67 pro ll D with a 6x7 cmos sensor and just bin the rest of the tiny sensors cameras

I found the D750 and 7DII very interesting.

In reply to:

maxnimo: From the samples I conclude that the camera has a lot of noise under ISO 800, and the photographer is a bit too addicted to wide angle lenses.

D750-DSC_0530-ISO_720.acr shot in what looks to be really horrible light and was pushed more than a full stop at ISO 720. I find the noise performance exceptional under those circumstances.

I like how, when the images are edited, you listed the edits that were made. It's the first time I've noticed this, but seems like a good demonstration of how an actual enthusiast would use the camera.

I love the colours of the lady on the seawall series, which appear to be unedited.

forpetessake: Outrageous intrusion of government. Ansel Adams must be turning in his grave. First they annexed the land for the 'public' use, and then that government bureaucracy made themselves judges and de facto owners prohibiting that same public from the free use of the land.

The point of all the Ansel Adams comments is to point out that photography and conservation have a long history together.

Anyway, I'm glad the Forest Service reconsidered.

@PDL Ok, so the principle is invalid. Got it. Photography didn't save lands.
