  • 3 Fisherman poses: if you think that they could call this synchronised fishing for the Olympics, you're never going to pick the winners. The posture of the left arm of each of them is different: ...
  • I find the similarity of the gamuts claimed rather 'forced'. To me they are nowhere near parallel. In fact I find the three fisherman strikingly irregular in their placement for something that is ...
  • By far and away the most time consuming part of my processing time is culling the photos that are not worth keeping (I would guess about 80% of them) When it comes to processing images that I keep, ...
  • "the coveted prize of a trolley bag" Clearly a major international contest then :-) PS Think that the darth vader etc replies are great, but the indignation that this wasn't picked up by the judges ...
  • I've been watching this thread and was going to suggest RAW + JPEG when it first started. If your aim in shooting jpeg is getting the photo to require no pp, then you need to set all the camera ...
  • How do you 'know' that the card was stolen in house of the rebate company? Canon have presumably paid the rebate company for the card. How can you describe this as a 'scam' by Canon? What have they ...
  • Replied in Yes...
    REAL photographers are people who tell you how REAL photographers should think and work - and there is everything wrong with it (except perhaps if they are talking about things like obeying the law ...
  • Replied in more photos
    Central Europe or Fenno-Scandia? Someone else is welcome to finish this off as I don't (or shouldn't) have time to be doing this.
  • It's a photo taken by the specialist car auction firm that is auctioning the cars. They may fetch $10 million altogether (see Buybuybuy's link).
  • If you look at the link posted by Buybuybuy you will see that the photo was taken by the car auction firm that will be selling these three cars. I imagine that the firm has this space set up to ...
  • Replied in more photos
    The mixture of historic buildings and new buildings make it look like something like a University campus or the seat of government.
  • Replied in how many
    Unfortunately many people find that the people they share with are not entirely honest. I know someone who shared with three very good friends as a student, and it turned out one of them was ...
  • This is clearly a marshmallow bush! Did I get it right ? :-)
  • Up until the OP in this thread you had only made two posts: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3928156#forum-post-56804500 http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3928156#forum-post-56835253 It ...
  • What evidence do you have for the edit? I read the OP when there were at most one or two replies, and it already stated that the camera was bought from the manufacturer. I agree that we seem to be ...
  • I'm surprised that no one has posted this link yet. Another classic: http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/01/rogers-law-of-new-product-introduction
  • I don't think it's the Arc de Triomphe. The streets around are all much 'larger scale'. However, the street does look like France. Orange has a triumphal arch, but I don't think it's there, either. ...
  • I thought this was going to be a speed camera photo, not a traffic camera. I remember a photo of a mallard being clocked for speeding from a fair time ago :-)
  • Fredrik already gave you a good solution for removing CA Who knows! Nikon just surprised everyone with the D500. Maybe we will get a V4 and CX macro lens in 2016 :-) The Nikon DX 85mm micro is ...
  • Hi guys, No problem with you discussing something that's a bit off-topic, but ple-e-e-e-ase could you edit out the parts of the conversation (and especially the photos) that have become irrelevant ...
