Wow. Sad to see this :-(
I'm a lula subscriber.

D200_4me: I actually used to follow him on Google Plus and YouTube, but he and too many other photographers began to get on my nerves with the overly philosophical/deep thoughts ramblings about photography and what it means. I don't need to find myself in photography. I already know who I am. For me, photography is a nice relaxation and escape from my daily technical job. Same goes for my gardening hobby. These days, you see people on the social media and photography sharing sites posting photos with some deep/philosophical comments to go along with it...as if they just discovered the meaning of life in the photo they posted and we're all supposed to stop and have those deep, deep thoughts about it and be in awe of how enlightening it was. Really, people...stop trying to be a philosopher and stick to trying to make better photos. It's pretty simple.

I would also add that I agree with his comment that most people in the world are generally good/nice people. It's the politicians and dictators that ruin it for all the rest of us with their thirst for power and control.

D200_4me: Some of the multi-shot creations I've seen are very nice, but for me personally, if I can't get what I want in one shot, I just don't bother. There are so many other nice images to be had easily with one shot, so I'm not going to spend time blending multiple photos together. Life's too short for that. I just want to enjoy photography, not spend my time on the computer creating something :-)

My point is/was....I think many newcomers end up feeling like in order to create some really 'wow' photos, you have to spend a lot of time on the computer editing. But in reality, we have a beautiful world around us and many great opportunities to get amazing photos with just one shot. Especially with the great cameras we have available today. There are also some really amazing multi-shot images I've seen, but I just don't like to spend time doing that.

That's more like it. (size)

I guess the full size trick doesn't work with smugmug hosted sites. I tried it with my site and all I get access to via Google image search is a 400x267 size image.

Sorry, but that dial on the back of the camera looks really odd and out of place.

Pixel Peter: The SnapBridge appsite only mentions Nikons D500 and 11 third party cameras. Why the H not my Nikon D750?

I downloaded it just to be sure...and yes, it looks only for Bluetooth devices. No option at all for wi-fi.

I was wondering when it would happen...

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (671 comments in total)

Hurts my eyes. I mush prefer the dark color since it's easier to read and view for a longer period of time.

I have it already but honestly, I rarely ever use it. I played with it a few times exporting photos from Lightroom into Nik for some black and white editing, but I quickly began asking myself, why am I doing this? It was easier to just stay in Lightroom (keeping the image as a raw file) and doing my tweaks there and still ending up with a final result I was very pleased with. It was fun to play around with Nik for awhile, but lately it's just wasting my disk space.

D200_4me: It's a beautiful place. I've seen some really nice images from there (like those from the trips Michael Reichmann organizes)...but for me, that place is overexposed. Much like Iceland with that darn abandoned airplane I keep seeing in the Iceland photography 'workshop' photos.

OK...(post focus feature) if you're only shooting JPG.

I guess I got a late model because mine was purchased in Autumn of 2015 and the Nikon site says my serial number is not affected by this.
Either way, the sky is not falling.

I do a lot of nature/garden shooting around my own house since I have gardening as a hobby too, but I thought the competition was about garden photos? Many of these are landscapes and general nature photos, not technically in a garden. Maybe they should just call it a nature/plant competition.

D200_4me: I've never really used my X100, X100S or even my Df on 'the street'. I wish manufacturers and reviewers would stop pushing street, street, street for fixed lens, single focal length compact cameras. These cameras are not one-trick ponies.

Thank you. Carry on...

Thanks :-)
