On Hiding Frog in the Green challenge (8 comments in total)

Bhimaprasad Maiti: Is cut & paste allowed in the Challenge programme.Some of the Erudite Hosts do not allow in the Challenge programme.

I responded indignantly to your faulty accusations about 'cut and paste'. You never answered any of my questions or acknowledged any of my requests.

I have no interest in continuing a dialogue with someone whose thinking process is corrupt.

It seems your knowledge of photographic technology and technique is very limited.

You started with a bad assumption about me using 'cut and paste' on my entry and questioned if it is allowed. The implication was possible cheating:'to break a rule or law usually to gain an advantage at something' (http://www.learnersdictionary.com/definition/cheat)

Please acknowledge that I did not 'cut and paste'.

You still need to promise to study 'depth of field' since the camera has nothing to do with it - only f stop, focal length, and distance from the subject.

It is sad that it seems your brain can imagine creative post processing but not actual creative photography.

Considering the image in the crystal ball, please explain how this could possibly have been the result of 'cut and paste'?

And what technical analysis are you using to accuse me of 'cut and paste'? Did you ever see a real photo with very shallow depth of field captured?
The background leaves were about 6 inches behind the head of the frog and I was about 3 feet away with a Canon 20D. If you use a DOF calculator, you will find the DOF to be about 0.5 inches. I have won 14 challenges and have 155 other 'top tens' and have never cheated!

Apology please and with the promise to learn about DOF calculators!!

ConanFujiX: Syshot would have been better

This photo could have been better in many technical ways but did the best I could at the moment. After a google search I still have no idea what "syshot" is or how it applies. Please enlighten me.

KonstantinosK: "...they've garnered plenty of attention since then...". Really?

Point is that it is hard to tell if 'out of stock' is due to low production or low production due to lack of consumer interest or high sales or some kind of combination. Not willing to judge the popularity of the camera or accept anyone else's judgment yet with such sparse facts.

kewlguy: I've been waiting for reviews and samples from the T6s but the images aren't really sharp here. The building photo taken with the 16-35 IS is unbelievably soft. Strong AA filter? bad lens sample?

Using DPP Viewer it shows that all but one focus point was lit up. So the photographer must have used 19 point automatic selection. This seems a poor choice for samples wanting to demonstrate sharpness. IMG_4680 with the 100 macro shows 10 af points lit up. Maybe all pics were taken in 19 point auto selection to show an average shooting experience.

T6s is out of stock at Amazon, B&H Photo, Adorama, Best Buy, etc.
Hmmmm...

Dragonrider: The tulip shot is a great image and also a perfect opportunity for a bracketed HDR shot. The result would have been awesome.

Rishi, thank you for your significant contributions to the technical depth of the DPR reviews and your very helpful sample images.

The dynamic range info/comparisons are quite useful.

So all that makes me greedy for even more info. There are quite a few rumors assuming that the 5DS/R will have improved color performance. Some mention a metamerism index as a way of comparing.

Is there any chance of including that or similar kinds of measures for color fidelity in the reviews? Or is that area just too full of witchcraft?

thejohnnerparty: LOL. This is so good. I am just shaking my head. Very nice.

Thanks for the compliment. Had fun taking and processing the shot. I'm just basically a tourist with a camera and get some lucky pics.

JimW-203: Does the reptile need to be alive or can it be, for example, a man-made representation?

In order for the challenge host to see your question you need to post it on the challenge page. He will never see it posted under a single entry like this location.

fredphotog: Wow - how did you get no shake at 1/40th of a sec - in a helicopter? VR that good?

Complete luck with a Canon 20D and 17-40 non-is in 2005. Guess my hand shake offset the helicopter shake

In reply to:

(unknown member): I really liked this photo. I thought it was very creative and a bit different. I don't know why it did relatively badly in the voting (even worse than my entry!)

Thanks for your comment. It was an interesting sight to observe but certainly not a technically good photo or even particularly well composed with the distracting block shadows. It was eye catching for me and the memory of that evening stroll on Lake Geneva still lingers.
