On HDR for the Rest of Us article (199 comments in total)

The point is that the Oregon coast picture would be much better if it showed the starfish in detail only, not the boring stone, sand and sky.

Steve Parkin: I used to love this site when it first started. Now its a collection area for all the cynics and know it alls in the photography world. Not to say some good folks aren't still out there. HDR - like it or hate it, is its own thing. It amazes me how arrogant people can be. Because somebody doesn't like something, it should be ridiculed and banned for not meeting their standards of what looks good. There's a ton of art out there that I don't like; but ripping people down or condemning entire types or styles because I don't agree with them? Pretty narrow minded. Do what you love your way guys. If something doesn't work for you, move on. There's nothing wrong with other people doing things outside the box. Are we all supposed to shoot the exact same way?

Make pictures not war :-)

His real photographs are much, much better. I especially appreciate Weingarten's Amish series:

This is photography at its best.

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview (901 comments in total)

No noticeable improvement in image quality over 5DII in RAW. That's good, since I can save a lot of money. Unless I'll decide to switch to Nikon D800, of course...

... however, a new lens for my old 5DII might be more rewarding. Or a trip to Paris. Or hiring a great model. Or anything else.

In fact, I've shot more pictures with a Canon 60D recently, as its sensor dust cleaning system is far superior to that of 5DII.

On royal-wedding in the Typically British, as seen by the British challenge (1 comment in total)

I like this picture. It has athmosphere, it's well composed and it's a document of certain historical occasion. Also, ot tells something abut the British society. In my view, it's the best picture of this contest. Even though it's not appreciated by the average visitor, you've got my congratulations.
