wkay: nice top level generalities and anecdotes s but nothing of any educational use. Walking us through an actual shoot would be of more value.

Especially walking us through the step-by-step process of selling oneself, negotiating the job and signing it. Organising the team for the shoot and all such logistics and once the shoot is done, all the steps that happen after that.

Henrik NJ: I'm excited to see what will happen to the rest of EU.

In Denmark D800 is listed at DKR 17995 - 18745 = UKP 2023 - 2108
In Sweden D800 is listed at SEK 24990 = UKP 2341
In Germany D800 is listed at €2899 = UKP 2424

It can't only be in the UK they have made a "mistake" on the price if that's their excuse, it will be in the whole EU.

As mentioned above, or by hopping accross the channel and purchase one the old-fashioned way directly in a shop.

andy forey: interesting to know that the pound has become a lot stronger over the last few months againts the yen.

The Pound has not increased in strength, but the Yen has gotten weaker. Their central bank intervened and flooded the market with billions of Yen, thereby diluting the strength of the existing pool.

All currencies are only getting weaker, they never get stronger, not even against each other. They only get weaker against each other and all get weaker against sound money: gold and silver. This is a game of illusion to play for us.

On Riding on the Sky Trails in the I want to ride my bicycle challenge (2 comments in total)

A nice shot showing how the chemtrails are polluting the air we breath. Similar to those photographs of kids playing with a ball in front of a rubbish heap.

Nice photo by the way.

If critique is given with respect, it is done so with good taste; it provides an honest and open view to the photographer of how people not only views his work, but also relative to the other contestants. This is a more realistic situation than everyone merely congratulation the photographer, as this will not provide any substance.

Even though this photo came in at number one, there are still the majority of people that did not vote for it and it is only realistic to expect that some of them wish to air their opinions.

You have been misinformed: this is not a congratulatory thread about this photo; it is a thread for comments on this photo.

Visit the photo in the challenge, add a comment to it and see where it ends up.

Not sure why you responded to me about your post-processing.

You have a nice photo, not my favourite from the selection, but still quite good.

Congratulations on winning.

There you can see, that I added contrast, saturation and changed a bit the color temperature, after seeing that what seems to be the problem with my editing?

I don't think they are complaining about it being post-processed AND winning, but rather that this photo won regardless of how it was processed.

Film is not stricture pure as you would indicate. Film still have to be developed and post-processed in the dark-room. The dark-room has similar features as digital post-processing, it is just more chemicals and filters as opposed to manipulating pixels on-screen.

Film's dark room is today's digital post-processing.

Surely you meant to say 'post-processed', as there are lots of other retouching software out there.

I generally agree with you on this photo, but what is interesting, or sad, depending on your point of view, is that so many voted positively for it.

The photo that I think was much more interesting and that I voted for, came in only at 150th place. I assume that we are unique in our views then.

The sea in this picture looks like fog so it is not really a photograph at all. You may as well have just added the mist in Photoshop afterwards with the spray can tool.

This is a fantastically beautiful shot and I wish to know about the photographer and his work.

Unfortunately, this photo - and its original entry - does not give credit or a link to the photographer's website.

Does anyone know who created this shot and where I can see more work from this photographer?

Thank you in advance.

This is a fantastically beautiful photograph.

I wish to know a bit more about the photographer/artist and also view more of their work, but I can't find the name.

Does anyone know who the photographer is here and where I can find more of his work?

Thanks
Jacques
