Great picture but not really a toy is it? You can't do anything with it.
Does a border such as this count as prohibited post-processing?
Great to see a camera like the S95 win a challenge like this. Shows that it's the lump of meat holding the camera that makes the shot.
Where is the campsite?
Very cool cloud formations. They look like a couple of dragon heads.
Two first places in DPReview challenges on the one day, with photos from the one shoot. Is that some kind of record? Well done!
rmw18k: Just so you know an airplane is not considered a motor vehicle. A motor vehicle is for roads, not rails or air.
I'm not concerned about the inclusion of trains, planes and boats, notwithstanding what my dictionary says. I have not lodged any complaints against train, plane or boat pictures and personally am happy to see them included in the challenge.
My dictionary says that a motor vehicle is "a road vehicle driven esp. by an internal combustion engine." That disqualifies about half of the entries, being all of the planes, boats, roller coasters, trains, the skate boarder and the diver. The tram could arguably stay given that trams do operate on roads.
I think it would benefit from a tighter crop, without the girl on the left.
Love the composition. Those ears! Just a shame that the focus isn't quite 100%.
Beautiful image but no film type.
More of a restaurant than a coffee shop isn't it?
iudex: This is exactly the lens the Pentax 16-85 mm should have been. Almost the same range, but much faster. The price is extremely high, however.
But Ludex you can trade weather sealing in for 1 EV gain. By buying the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 C.
eno2: Everything is very nice about this lens, except the outrageous price.
Have to agree with Ebsilon on the weather sealing front. After all, the D7xxx range is weather sealed. So why not offer this as a sealed lens to go with it?
Having already seen this on another site yesterday, my concern is that people will think that there is a camera hidden in the bag and that the lens cap holder is actually a window for the camera to shoot through. Take this to somewhere where photography is not permitted and expect to be challenged by people thinking that it is a hidden camera.
Boky: Looked like a monkey face looking through a cracked glass window... at first.
I saw a monkey face too!
Technically this is a refraction, and also the objection being reflected is not supposed to appear in the image.
This is technically a refraction, not a reflection.
Looks pretty pristine to me. Not much decay.
