Probably better than some contest juries...

Spunky_me: Question: how did you compost the skateboard jumping shot with multiple shots?

Easy. I assume those are multiple layers with masks to reveal the skater in photoshop.

Gesture: Sample galleries. Why are the images so unimpressive from multi-thousand dollar cameras/

Because this is not 500px with those over saturated, heavily photoshopped photos, just plain shots.

gravelhopper: To the people who are bothered by photos depicting human suffering:

You are asking to be spared with that kind of pictures.

I suggest an alternative approach: you contribute to a world where we have less suffering, especially the kind that humans inflict on humans. Every individual contributes in some direct or indirect way to the human condition, thus has the power and the possibilities to influence how that condition develops.

To those who claim that only an insignificant number of people experience some kind of suffering: do your research and get a better feeling for our reality. Denying facts doesn't make them nonexistent.
Cheers.

I see no problem in photos depicting human suffering, but I certainly see a problem in using them for personal satisfaction and achievements, like contests.

Low dynamic range? With a shutter speed like that, go for multiple exposures or jpeg hdr in camera.

Segaman: they should include battered fish to dip in the oily sensor.....if hungry!

It's me who hahah. I'm not nervous but having a good laugh with you all! Google "d750 5d mark iii" and watch some Canon owners and reviewers accept the evidence. I really enjoyed this one: "http://dreamtimeimages.com/photographers/canon-5d-mark-iii-vs-nikon-d750/" and the dynamic range comparison in this one: "http://dreamtimeimages.com/photographers/canon-5d-mark-iii-vs-nikon-d750/"

@Segaman you hate shooting pass 1600 because you camera sucsks and @fmian, the D750 gives a nice organic grain at 6400. Live with that ;)

You are just jealous of not owning a camera with no noise at iso 6400 ;) Go and play with your flawed, pricier and inferior Canon

They also forgot to apologize for the overall poor selection in this year's Nikon Photo Contest.
Great at making cameras and lenses but very poor at judging photos

FM1978: The one mistake Nikon made in going from the D700 to the D750 was to drop the separate AE-lock and AF-on buttons, an important pro-level feature. Yes, you can reprogram the Fn button in the front of the camera to do this, but its not the same thing. I'm not sure why Nikon removed this nearly central feature of its pro cameras. It would have made the D750 ergonomically perfect in demanding shooting situations.

You can reprogram the AE-lock button

Rainersen: Funny thing, so many crybabies here...

Fact is that the D750 is one of the best DSLRs on the market.
If you don't respect this you have never owned and worked with a D750.

best regards
Claus

So much jealousy ....

PDL: I find this interesting, but not all that unexpected.
1. Reuters has been burned in the past few years where their "freelance" photographers have edited images to the extreme. If I remember correctly - and I claim the right of denial - they had a few award winners regected after the fact due to extreme editing.
2. Reuters, like most "Journalists" these days, are using cell phones more often than high end still cameras. Easier to get in/out of the countries and if you have internet access - well, "the cloud" will save your lunch - or maybe your life.
3. Reuters is pushing for JPEGS with a max of 3500 pixels on the horizontal - resizing, well OK. But it still needs to go through an editor of some kind to be resized, so theiy are not saying no editing.
4. Ironic that NG, the last time I talked to one of thier "freelancers", requires the RAW images. All to better judge the quality of the photographer.

If quality counts, shoot RAW, more data is better.

A photographer who doesn't know his camera can write jpegs with a specific size... oh well... he better get a job at a 7eleven

madeinlisboa: Time to separate good photographers from Photoshopers...

Photojournalism is not toying with photos "a la 500px", it's WYSIWYG, so yes, darkroom is pointless. If you are a good photographer with a good camera, you don't need RAW in photojournalism. For the sake of honesty and reality in news.

RichRMA: It's a long time since frontiersmen shot Buffalo for sport from moving trains. The herds that exist are in pretty good shape so using their skins and meat is no sin. If greenies don't like it, they can go weave hemp straps.

Well, the human race is also in pretty good shape, not to mention, there is plenty of it...

madeinlisboa: Nice! The winning image is at least 2 EVs below optimal exposure. Number one mistake for snow landscapes and "Experts" didn't notice that??? Isn't technical issues part of the evaluation? Even my 9 year old son would notice that. And he calls himself a professional photographer... What a joke the contests are becoming....

What a mature reply. You should be in a circus.

On article Adobe Camera Raw 9.2 adds local dehaze (60 comments in total)

Still waiting for a list of local corrections (brush, graduated filter, radial filter) applied to an image in Lightroom....
And no, the History panel is not enough. A list from which we could see and select a specific applied correction would be extremely useful, specially on complex images, where the tool markers are almost invisible among so much detail.
When I review an image I have to navigate between all correction tools to check which ones I applied and then search throughout the image in order to find them. That's almost pathetic and extremely counterproductive.
