What a great image.
Nice shot, but there are no blacks in the image making it look muddy.
Lovely shot, but I can't help but think it looks at least half a stop underexposed.
Absolutely incredible image. Simple, yet beautiful. Well done.
WilliamJ: I'd like to tell something about the "unpatriotic" critic. First, do photographers from around the world have to be "american patriotic" and produce "patriotic pictures only" as if they worked for the Pravda ?Second, where is gone the freedom of speech ? Do expression have to be "according to" the wishes of "flattering images" supposed to be a universal expectation ?
Theyre still crap though.
Just garbage. Bad lighting. Bad posing. Bad interaction.Just shows. Win a major press award and still can't take a photo.
I sympathise with his argument that the setup was not what he was led to expect, but still.
mayurgogoi: IF DPREVIEW CONTINUES these types of photoes--dpreview should be banned--Women are not for sale--These types of pics has not an art-pure vulgarism--we request all members and wellwishers of dpreview--to remove this pics from dpreview--otherwise we will write to UNITED NATIONS/UNESCO to ban dpreview or take any legal actions.
Oh grow up.
I take it that they are ladies with that "something extra" about them.
Brave capture, because I wouldn't fancy getting kicked with those spikes, though I am sure there are some who would. ; )
Beautiful image. Well done.
tony field: Watch out!!! If you are a serious user of Bridge6 and rely on reasonable performance with a LARGE number of images in the cache, ACR 7.1 will cause all of the images to be re-cached when you access an image directory.
For example, I have 700,000 images and am reconstructing the Bridge Cache to comply with the new SQLite file implementation. It has taken me 10 continuous days of 24 hr/day to process only 380,000 images. The new release of ACR 7.1 will negate this completely and I have to spend another 10 days simply to reprocess the what I have already done.
In fact, I think the reprocessing will be significantly longer than the 10 days since all of the raw files must be reprocessed - effectively negating the use of the BridgeCache files recorded in each directory.
I do not understand.Why do you need to cache 700,000 images?Why not rebuild them only as you need to visit them?
I am at a loss for words. Well done for taking the shot and very well done for sharing it with us / bringing it to our attention here.
I fully agree with Old Arrow. Barbarism such as this should be met with the death penalty in all countries.No excuses.No defence.No mitigation.
Superb capture (except for the dust spots)...
Any chance of a breakdown on the workflow used to achieve it?
Great shot.2 or 3 or more shot montage?
Brilliant shot and perfect timing.
