Valiant Thor: Congratulations! As expected, award goes once again to depictions of war, conflict, human suffering, gloom, despair, agony, depression and misery. I can't decide which is better, these awards or the Sony acid in the face awards.

I guess good ole photography that uplifts the spirit with beauty and wonderment just ain't the "in" thing anymore.

I'm with you. I'm so tired of this s**t.

Reilly Diefenbach: 177 MB is a lot of overhead for a bit less moire and no gain in resolution. Good job, Pentax, though.

Here's the math ... pixel shift effectively doubles resolution.

Mike Griffin: Pixel shift looks amazing. Looking forward to seeing its effect at ISO other that 100. More to the point, how does it perform at slow and fast shutter speeds.

Just a hint:

Adam Palmer: That is some amazing tech. Sony if you are listening I want that in my a7rIII

My thoughts are exactly the same as yours.

I think I'll wait for the Sony a7R III with a similar pixel shift technology. E-mount has a superb selection of available lenses.

On photo Cemun in the Slow shutter speed challenge - Water challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

cjf2: Great photo of an interesting view. What is happening here? Is it water from multiple springs all flowing into a stream?

Yes, this is just one of many intermittent karst springs in the area.

https://youtu.be/pU35sNZhy7A (another typical karst spring shot the same day, 300m distance from the first one)

On photo Before the Catastrophic 2014 Ice Storm in the Never Again challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

TheManWhoWas: Sorry to bitch but, "Provide a scene that is impossible to reproduce today.". And the winner is... a picture of a tree reflected in water. Very nice picture for sure, but hardly in the spirit of the challenge IMO.

Please feel free to reproduce that photo. The tree is gone. All that's left standing is its trunk. All branches were broken in the worst ice storm in living memory. Can you imagine 4-6 inches of black ice on everything?

Let me google that for you

On photo I love a parade in the Film on the street challenge (8 comments in total)
In reply to:

photophile: Lets see....Renault 12, Citroen 2CV...and I think Vauxhall/Opal Victor. Definitely 1980! What a great day to go for a waddle :-)

FYI: in German-speaking countries, the Citroen 2CV is called "Ente" ("duck"). :)

And the first car on the right is Opel Rekord C (1967–1971)

steelhead3: Tell Sony to come to Oregon and be safer from these natural disasters....with 12,000 workers laid off from Intel we have plenty of experienced workers available.

Hmmm...

On photo At the foot of the mountain in the night photography challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

cjf2: This was one of my favourites. I like the balance between the natural light on the mountain and the artificially lit church.

Thanks! Dreznica is a picturesque location and worthy of the effort.

Actually, it's a stacked image made up of two images.

evancj: I agree with Steve, this is an outstanding photo and should have done much better. Looks like you had a couple of sandbag votes.

Thanks! Last time, there were six of them. :)

On article Readers' Showcase: Nikhil Shahi (44 comments in total)
In reply to:

ruicarv79: I would love to know the criteria behind these "Readers' Showcase" choices. Another dull, meaningless photographer. What's so special about these photos? Cannot understand, really. Sorry but can't help not expressing my opinion.

Hopefully this will help both sides of discussion ...
