RuthC: Congratulations, George Veltchev, on your well deserved win in this weekly challenge. This is a really beautiful capture of a butterfly against the softly-muted background, in pastel colours which enhance the bright clarity of the butterfly wearing its finest attire. Absolutely stunning, in my opinion. Ruth :-)

Thank you Ruth for your wonderful comments here ...appreciated !!!

On Panasonic FZ1000: Not just another superzoom... article (158 comments in total)

No matter how advance this 1' sensor is .... the result is as good as a burnt popcorn with sour mayonnaise ... for $900 that's what you get !

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 First Impressions Review preview (1282 comments in total)

At Studio Comparison both Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 and Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III, demonstrate unenviable level of noise at higher ISO, when face the one and only Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II ( check for yourself ) ... if your main goal is IQ in relatively compact package then the Canon is a clear winner here ... end of story!

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

Sooo much stress around this little harmless noisy aphid ... but where are these photographic geniuses when you browse the photo challenges above, I wonder .... after the first top 3.. 4 images the rest seems a total garbage ....

In reply to:

RuthC: Fantastic picture, George! You have captured the impressive power and turbulence of the waves, and the diminutive size of that lone board rider gives us the perspective we need to appreciate the magnificence of the surf and sea. A very appropriate win for the challenge title. Ruth :-)

Thank you for the lovely comments Ruth ... once again !

In reply to:

jaykumarr: :-) is this real? amazing photo..

By the way, is SP 150-600 resolving better than canon 100-400? Do you have comparison of something like moon photo taken with both?

Thanks mate ...I do not have any samples to compare both lenses, but I am really, really impressed with the new glass from Tamron !!!

On MIT algorithm predicts photo popularity article (97 comments in total)

This crap does not work at all, let me tell you ... one of my top images has received more than 2500 like/favorite marks in 500px for a period of 12 hours !!! ( an image of a charging elephant bull ) The same image has been visited more than 18 000 times, reached 98.9 % on the chart after that ... and here at MIT algorithm it has received a pathetic score of 3. something ! Looking at these melancholic goats above I can clearly say that your seemingly complex mathematical approach is nothing short than a thin-walled soap-bubble ....
