  • Replied in Northern Light
    Wonderful, Choi, it looks like an amazing voyage, and I am glad the timing worked out for you and P re the Northern Lights. Merry Christmas! Thomas in balmy Berkeley -- Photographic collections at ...
  • Created discussions Burned to the ground! Bummer!
    Sad news to share...I took this picture some years back, and was earlier today contacted by CNY central (a division of ABC News) that the so-called Cox Block building had burned to the ground ...
  • Thank you Monica. It was like stepping into a fantasy land, that evening, since the "stage" encompassed land and water, boats, cliffs, one whole village, a narrator on a suspension bridge about ...
  • Thank you, Steve. Indeed, as a new piece of kit, it needs to be pushed so that certain expectations are either met, exceeded, or reigned in. That particular occasion accounted for all three such ...
  • To be honest, whether going for the G7X is the right move for you or not, that's not up to me to judge. My other gear is far removed technically and operationally from the little Canon (a Leica M9 ...
  • As a matter of principle, I don't think it's fair to advice you one way or the other, simply because I don't know your photographic history, your requirement(s) and personal needs re this type of ...
  • No need to bring up the S-word here. I've shot plenty of Sony myself, still do (big old-fashioned A900 FF rig with wonderful Zeiss AF lenses), and was the owner of the original RX100 for a year ...
  • So where are you now, John? This looks like somewhere down in Guizhou, or perhaps in the Jiangxi/Zhejiang mountains? Hard to keep rack of you... :-) All the best at this new workplace, Thomas (Just ...
  • That's a nice stream you have there, John, almost Bierstadtian. Happy outings. With all the rain around here these days, things are sprouting back to life all over the place. Thomas
  • Replied in Oswald61
    I buy a camera to use it. If I want to really test a camera before I buy, I rent it first and run it thru its paces.
  • Replied in Travelshooter
    Thanks for your interest. This performance is brand new, it was only the second month they did this, and I doubt there's anything like it anywhere in the country (not with that theme at least and ...
  • Replied in Nick
    Thank you, Nick. This was indeed an unusual performance. They lost the plot somewhat 2/3rds thru, but never mind, the visual impact (plus the sonic impact, all this was narrated over very powerful ...
  • Replied in Ray
    Thank you for these comments, Ray. A few of these could benefit from an extra pass thru NoiseNinja or something like that, very true. The other camera I used during this trip (not that evening, ...
  • Replied in Hmmm...
    I guess that's all good and true, ten months ago as it is now. I've been tempted by the XV a couple of times in that time period (actually, I ended up renting the thing not once, but twice), but ...
  • You mean tilting the LCD out to 90 degrees? Yes, often. The eye goes down to the screen, disengages from the subject, the shot is taken.
  • Tradeoff? Sometimes I crop, but, especially if I am going beyond 60 or 70mm, I usually have a good reason to, so I don't need to crop at all later on. Buddhist / Tibetan monk (not cropped) When you ...
  • My visual record of a monumental performance I recently witnessed on one of China's most sacred mountains. Fair warning, some of these images are a true onslaught on the senses. Link: ...
  • Since you mention my name :-) , I should probably emphasize that perspective is EVERYTHING. Meaning what angle you choose (or, more likely, find yourself in when doing street), how much or little ...
  • A good range of choices for this eager feline pilot, Paul. This is in Qingdao? I've come across a similar display of decommissioned aircraft in (well, near) Tianjin some time ago: Thomas
