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.

Exactly. If it weren't for Aneel Adams, many of these places wouldn't BE national parks.

And he made a buck or two along the way.

Daniel Lauring: They aren't bad photos but I felt they don't really do a good job of telling a story, or more specifically David's story of Alzheimer's. What does his mother's pill bottle have to do with his condition? What does a lightbulb sitting on a radiator have to do with his condition? Is it a metaphor? Is it staged? Did he leave it there and forget to change a bulb?

I felt the same way looking at his photo project of Edith. If I hadn't read the description I'd have no idea what it was about.

I'm quite concerned with the negativity on this site.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Hmm, what have we got here? A manufacturer that makes the best lenses south of Leica and Zeiss, with a wonderful tradition of quality throughout its history. They make no less than six full-frame models, all of them highly respected by their image quality; they are at the forefront of their industry in terms of effective, useful innovation and, despite relying almost exclusively on their cameras and lenses, they are still the second largest photography manufacturer. Professionals all over the world use Nikon for the most demanding jobs. I'd say they deserve some respect for all this, but how do people react to a simple interview?
- We want 4K;
- We want cropped sensors;
- We want crappy mirrorless;
- We don't care for wonderfully bright viewfinders, we just want dumb electronic ones;
- We want E-mount;
- And X- mount;
- We want useless features that add nothing to image quality.
The photography community has gone insane.

You know how long my non-mirrorless ancient dinosaur cameras' battery lasts when I leave them switched on? A month or more - not sure.

You know how long it takes for me to have the camera wake up and snap a shot? 0.2s

Fact.

A mirror is a FEATURE. A complicated and expensive feature, but one I like.

My favourite street photographer takes NINE batteries for his mirrorless camera for a day of shooting. Me? Two, but the second one rarely gets used.

Dinosaurs are slow, like Mirrorless.
