inevitable crafts studio: strangly overprocessed, i didnt noticed sandy or any other storm in the US, they dont really cover that on the news in europe. i guess its bad because of their wooden houses in the states.
from the photos it doesnt shock me, looks like some sort of highwater
Hu?Sandy was covered everywhere in Europe. In TV, radio, newspapers, online.I was in Austria, Germany and Hungary around the time Sandy hit the US and it was in the news everywhere.
peevee1: OK, I have finally finished through all 229 images. Are you kidding me? It is probably the best gallery of the decade. Sensationally good. What is better to document the decline of Europe?
I don't like HDR much, especially much HDR. But it is not about HDR or pixels - it is about the subjects, and they are sensational.
I partially agree. The actual images and even more the subject are amazing.But the result are completely overdone HDR pictures which, to me, fail to display any soul because they look so artificial.
That will definitely save the world!
I don't mind HDR when it's employed to cover more stops when that's really necessary. But these images here all look over-artsy in a forced way. It's totally overdone, unfortunately.
An amazingly interesting country.It's very high up on my list of places I have to visit.
Fixx: 3 is enough. Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop.
Photomatix?HDR is as dead as hipsterrific filters are.
Juan M Molina: Maybe doesn't fit the same class, but I should consider Pixlr Express as the best alternative for Android. It has a HUGE library of filters, canvas and effects, and also sports a very useful array of "more classic' editing options.
There is a simpler version called Pixlr-o-matic, that may better fit in your list.
Pixlr is nice although I prefer Snapseed over Pixlr.Especially in the non-hipster department where real basic editing takes place, it offers a lot more in my opinion.
Yet the actual point is the article's caption: It's about NEW apps.
This retrohipstercrap is really getting old.
CyberAngel: Details are amazing!You should sometimes - only once - do this with a DSLR like Nikon D800 and oversharpen, make it a little warmer and oversaturate slightlyTHENclaim it came from the Lumia 1020and reveal the truth after all the haters and "Pro" have given their superior opinions. I would do it for the fun to see what happens afterwards.Caveat: those who realize the truth might reveal the gig too early...
You can tell how well the details are from a sample downsized to 467x701 pixels?Good work, you must be a pro!
JadedGamer: Unless you ask a cook what stove was used to prepare your meal, you should not ask a photographer what camera was used to take a picture. It diminishes the role of the craftsman.
Well, unfortunately, they suck. And they were made with a phone.
So those pictures suck and they were all hipstaraped to death.If that's what they wanted to prove, they succeeded.
Duppypog9: What a great example of "it's the photographer, not the equipment that make a great image".
I agree with the other comment. He was in one of the most mesmerizing surroundings. Even Polaroids shot there would be beautiful.
ashnikonian: "You have to draw the line somewhere. You don't have to own a Nikon D800 and 17-55mm f/2.8..."
Why would you use a DX lens on an FX body?
A camera is a tool, different tools for different jobs, surely?
"Why would you use a DX lens on an FX body?"
Because... Vignetting! That makes some really wonderful vignetting, dude!;)
Design by Jony Ive usually means that Dieter Rams has introduced pretty much the same design half a century ago. Ive is a thief.
peevee1: What, for all that extra money, they could not even install a better EVF panel? Dead company for idiots.
Now, now!For all that extra money, you get that orange Leica logo!
Leica. The new Apple.
thx1138: Different crap, same smell. Nothing's changed. You still have to pay for eternity and even after paying them thousands of dollars you can't use software that would have cost you $400 up front once, when you stop paying. You are still at their mercy on pricing too. Also it now adds LR to the CC model, which they said they had no intention of doing. Sure you can still buy the standalone LR5 for now, but how much longer will that option persist?
Also it's not a promotion, but if you don't sign before the end of the year deal's off. What exactly is a promotion?
That's no back door approach.You can sell your old version and buy the new version.But when you want to pay the upgrade price, you have to keep the old version.This makes perfect sense since an upgrade is a sort of discount.If you could use the old version after the upgrade, they could sell the full version for the upgrade price to begin with.
AbrasiveReducer: I'm curious about something. Is the price discrepancy on Adobe products due to taxes (VAT) or does Adobe charge more in Europe/UK/Australia because they think they can get more--and then taxes go on top of that?
What do you mean with "photophilia"?The Greek appendix "philos" means the love towards something, so photophilia is the love for photos or, more precise in that case, the love for light.
ZAnton: Cokin is a virtual company. I am looking for a place where I can buy their PRO filters (in Germany) for 3 years, and still can not find anything. Neither amazon, nor ebay or any other more or less big shop has their products. Their internet page has not functioned for years (is it now?).So dpreview, please delete these news, so that other people would save their time by reading it and searching these phantom filters.
Hu?I just made a quick Google search with the termscokin kaufen deutschlandand found quite a bunch of stores selling them.
I consider all filters but ND and polarizers quite obsolete these days.
