On Winter Photography in Iceland article (82 comments in total)

LOL, I spent three weeks in Iceland this past Winter but unfortunately for me, it was apparently an historically cold and snowy season. Too bloody cold and Wintery to get out at night unless you're a real hardcore fanatic. Oh well, I may go back in the future sometime in late Spring/Summer (have family there!), oh well, I got a couple of hours of sunlight :D. The pictures in this article look great though.

On User Review: Gura Gear Kiboko 30L Backpack article (113 comments in total)
In reply to:

Klarno: Not to say this bag isn't excellent on its own merits, but, can this hold a modest number of non-photo related accessories, like water (preferably in a camelbak bladder), food, flashlight, clothing for inclement weather? If not, how can this bag truly give you the ability to carry your gear for hours?

I think it does come with a rain cover. To me this backpack would be too big, the 22L might be better but still seems a bit bulky (laptop compartment not required), the way I see this bag being better utilised would be camera gear in one half (I really don't want to carry that much gear on a hike/trek, not even a massive telephoto lens), and then travel essentials in the other, food, water, sunscreen, etc, etc, there also seem to be a couple of thinner, smaller compartments on the front of the bag. The missing tripod support does seem like quite an oversight. It certainly looks interesting although a couple simple enhancements would make it even better.

On Pentax K-01 studio test shots published article (146 comments in total)

lol, by the time anyone reads this, it'll probably be fixed, but I did Pentax change their name to Canon, and the K-01 to EOS 5D Mark III?

Awesome article, and great information, I will be going to Iceland at xmas time, so hopefully I can remember (to bookmark this page at least) and I can capture something remotely close to the great pictures you've displayed here.

Really beautiful pictures and great advice, I never really thought about the background in such detail before.

On Studio in the Wild article (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

Graystar: A few pictures of the setup with background and flash units in place would have been helpful.

None of those images really thrilled me.

Exactly what I was thinking, I was scrolling through waiting for the picture of the setup.

On The what and why of wildlife macro photography article (46 comments in total)

The hovering dragonfly and the robber fly shots are super. I've never managed to capture anything in flight, I'd be ecstatic with something close to that dragonfly.

On The Art of HDR Photography Part 4: HDR Workflow article (1 comment in total)

Yeah, I really like the de-ghosting in Photomatix 4, allowing the user to select which bracketed shot to use for sections, it could be made easier to select parts of the photo, but it works pretty well, it's really saved and improved some shots I thought were no good.
