On AFTER THE STORM in the Pollution challenge (2 comments in total)

Well by one or two people it is obviously of no value, but that's their choice.

Thanks for the kind comment it is appreciated and a superb image you produced.

On Marco Bohr investigates 'hipster photography' news story (105 comments in total)

An attempt to re-invent, intellectually it appears bland. Far to conservative. It is innate and you cannot get away from that,it is in the attempt to take ownership of something that has always existed.

On best this week at Ebey Island in the My best picture this week challenge (1 comment in total)

Being in the top eleven is good, yet an image of this quality does not deserve the two low scores it received.This goes for many of the images on here.
Nice pic well done.

Wow just looked at this previously posted video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juM46ny1WhM&feature=youtu.be

This has been the clearest pointer yet to why the financial structures of the world are at the moment. Truly unbelievable that guys like this can be in charge of our futures in that respect. They make politicians look clever and if that is so something is seriously wrong. It is a great video demonstrating the lack of any community commitment to bettering peoples lives and shows pure true unadulterated greed and any kind of trust, truth and honesty.

Big no from me,I cannot afford this type of on going payment. I got Cs4 and Cs6 at a time when there was bit of spare cash, which can happen occasionally.I cannot sensibly commit to monthly payments for something like this which is not actually needed. I am one of those who has Cs because it is there and it is a treat. Not because I have too. Do not get me wrong it is a wonderful bit of kit, but I need water, food and some of the utilities. This is a luxury, a hobby and as we all know we need to make choices with the little spare cash we have. Reality is more and more of those making this type of decision are paid very very well and they seriously do not understand, are out of touch,especially at this time as most peoples household income is being squeezed, this amount being asked for from Adobe is not trivial. Usually if you buy a utility on a monthly plan the price drops dramatically, as there is certainty for the supplier. That in itself rings alarm bells on this decision

In reply to:

Horshack: The good news for Adobe is they have a near-monopoly in creative software tools. The bad news is their monopoly is in a discretionary market, where consumers aren't compelled to use their product and can do without. Adobe doesn't appear to be aware of this distinction but they soon will be.

you are correct that many use it because it is there at a reasonable price. Now people will only use it if they have too and that is a huge difference, as they will find ways not to use it.
People are not as stupid and as well off for money as many of these corporate decision mackers believe others to be.

shaocaholica: Can someone explain why when first party camera makers started making wireless flashes years ago they didn't just go straight to radio controlled? Was there some tech barrier?

I think probably legislation on using radio signals in certain parts of the world.

On Plymouth Sound in the My best picture this week challenge (3 comments in total)

Thanks cmantx. Luck in a way in that when I arrived with grey cloud the sun was shining beams of light onto Plymouth Sound. I say luck as I have been there twice since and not had anything to memorable to photograph out at sea.

super image I gave it a five if I remember correctly.The composition the tones and not being overly polished was the attraction.

In reply to:

Deleted pending purge: Simon... I'm more concerned about people who dish out 0.5's and 5's and often nothing inbetween. They add their total lack of criteria to the works, with zero considerations for things like elemental layout, tonal scale, overkill post-processing, rule-of-thirds, story flow... Not to mention the fact that the 1st placed work here shouldn't have been voted upon at all, since it was revealed that it wasn't in line with the rules but has not been DQ'd. It is as if a rider would took a shortcut across the hippodrome to arrive first, instead of riding the track like the rest ;)

YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE VOTING? I have noticed one image which is from a member who has another image that won a challenge. The other winning challenge image is used on a sony lap top advert. Either the member has had the image published and made a nice sum from sony or????? I'll leave it to your imaginations. So yes dont take these challenges as Simon says as anything other than fun. Dpr cannot be that daft and must know the whiole sale cheating that is going on. Took me five minutes to find out what I did.

Not to sure about this image. More contrast for me would have brought it out a bit more.
