Interestingly Tin Eye also found a copy of this photo credited to user 'Anne Dixon' on myfinepix.com

Certainly the photo's in Ted's gallery show an interesting range of cameras. Are they all his or is there something we should be told :D

It might be informational to those of us who are doubters, if you uploaded the photo of the negative to Dropbox or Box and provided the link for all to see.

DigitalTed, so you want me to believe that:
- you took the original photo on FP4 prior to 2006:12:06 13:00:10 with your Hasselblad 500C
-and then took the FinePix S9500 photo of the print or negative on that date, colorized it in CS3, altered it again 2010:11:13 15:55:47 and posted to your online gallery
-then on Thursday, 28th February, 2013 you retake and digitize the FP4 print or negative in b/w.
-then post it in a challenge on Sunday, 17th April, 2016
-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
-Isn't this just a good photo OF a Hasselblad 500C and NOT BY a Hasselblad 500C????

On photo Monument Valley Sunrise in the HDR challenge (1 comment in total)

Great work! Should have won the challenge.

Too many people confuse the 'grunge look' with multi-exposure HDR.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (596 comments in total)

Thank you, DPR for working to please more of your customers.

Having a choice for lighting is really a customer service win. For me, I'll be staying with the black with white print.

Good work.

Is an urban background required? Hard to find it in about 10 of the entries.

In reply to:

FuhTeng: I'm going to leave this here for all those who believe sharpness (resolution? accutance?) is the most important thing about lenses -

"Our young men should spend more time considering the composition and merit of their images, and less time with magnifying glasses counting how many bricks and shingles they can resolve." - from a Paris newspaper article on Daguerrotype photography, from 1841.

Well quoted! I can not even determine the intended technical demonstration of many of the photos including notably 15,16,17,23,32. If it is obvious to someone, please educate me.

On photo Colonnade in the Design Princaples- Repetition challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

tarakanchik: Wow, great shot! I was there last year but must've missed this view... good catch :)

Thanks! I would have missed this shot also, except that I saw a pro with knee pads and a Canon 1D-- camera on his elbows and knees taking his shot.

Well, I lined up behind him and took this one. Had to wait for the clouds to cover the sun which was causing harsh shadows. The pillars are only about 6 feet high to the base of the arches, so the perspective really lies to the eye.

Still so much to learn. Nice to follow some pros.

In reply to:

lynmay: Phenomenal water fall(s) image!
You made a great image and told the story
that there is no way you can do this location
justice with a photograph.
So, I'll just have to go and see it as well.
Thank you for sharing a great moment that you
experienced.

Thanks for your comment. We spent 3 days there on a tour of Chile, Argentina and Brazil. It was spectacular and more time during golden hours would have been nice. Well worth the visit.

In reply to:

Jorginho: Ah...nothing personal but: yuck! I gave it a 1 because I feared a heavily photoshopped pic like this could win and it did. Should have given it a 0,5. Nothing natural to my eye. But that is me,

Agree totally. The horizon is not even level.

On article 4K video: What you need to know (286 comments in total)

RE: design format.

The thin, low contrast, widely spaced font literally gives me a headache, makes me nauseous and forces me to look away often. There is a reason that an alternative like this is not available on a Kindle or a Kindle app for smartphone or tablet.

Photographers often use a black background to isolate and accentuate their subject for a reason that has to do with how the visual brain works. Photographers may also use gray on white for ethereal effect but not to make it easy to view and focus on the subject.

I spend hours a day enjoying DPReview as a distraction from my physical limitations. Your proposed font and background design would severely limit my viewing.

I hope you know that your current design distinguishes your site from others in a good way. Have you received user complaints?

Do not make a change just because you think it is time.
