MikeF4Black: However stuoid it may seem (and I haven't even held the camera) the lack of a circular eyepiece surround is the dealkiller for me.

LOL! are you serious? dealkiller because the eyepiece is rectangular as opposed to round?

In reply to:

FMagalhaes: I found something to like in each of the photos. Congratulations to all of you who were selected.
I was wondering if anyone else noticed the peculiar artifacts in the strip of bright reflection that divides the mountain from its reflection in the water in photo #14. The part I'm referring to can be seen between the posts holding up the dock, and it's only easily noticed in the enlargement. There seems to be a discontinuity in that strip of bright reflection that doesn't look quite real. I like the image very much, but I'd like to know what's going on in that part of the water. Since it's DannH's photo maybe he can tell me what's up.

Yep, it not just where you mention, its everywhere else as well. Looks like some very heavy-handed cloning. Look around the rightmost post meets the mountains. Heavy cloning. Not sure how that got past the judges. Anyway, all others are pretty good

why would anyone buy -at this price- something that is highly suspect. At $1M a pop, I'd expect a complete and detailed provenance report.

On Pilot watches challenge (15 comments in total)
In reply to:

australopithecus: What is a Pilot Watch ?

The main reason no automatics were used for the moon missions was that there were no automatic chrono watches in the mid sixties. Manual was what was available at the time.

In reply to:

Automatics dont work based on gravity, they work based on centripetal forces (when you move your wrist). RUcrAZ, hate to pop your balloon but the Speedmasters that the original Apollo guys used were purchased earlier than 69 and were likely 67's. Still a very very classy watch (I've got one, but model 2000).
