jhahilt: Every one of these photos required at least a paragraph of explanation to make them relevant, a good picture should be able to stand and deliver on its own. Time has in the past given the world some incredible images, this lot fails
Agreed, however I do think the first image and the image of Gabby Douglas are fantastic!
Sergey Borachev: There goes the sub $2000 price, but not really surprising, given the need for Nikon to protect its APS-C DSLRs. A $1700 price would just about kill the D7000 and D400, and some other APS-C cameras.
I am confident however that a price like $1700 will come, probably in another year, when the D7000 type of APS-C DSLRs are not worth protecting as their sales drop further due to the advance of really high-end $1200 or so MILCs, when Nikon will feel the pressure and will let its APS-C DSLR owners move up to FF easier rather than losing them if they keep switching to better and better performing MILCs like the E-M6, GH3 or X-Pro2s, or some new Sony FF interchangeable camera in another year's time. Interesting times we are in! :)
Huge changes waiting to happen soon.
The D7000 costs €797 in a popular store in the Netherlands. I don't believe that this is the same price range as $1700 would be (which, currently, would be €1316). This is some 65% more expensive.
TomasJacko: ...or, how bad post-processing spoiled a photo.
I don't like saying it, but I agree with you here
What's with the funky light edit? NEX-5 yay!
creepy clouds! nice!
Pretty! I really like the framing, though it's a pity that the tree is cut off at the top. Compromises, compromises...
Too powerful edit but despite that it's a really nice picture!
I really like this one! The spider webs on the left side are a nice detail :) I think this image would benefit from the NIK "structure"-slider.
