The photographic market is saturated in users, devices & above all subjects. What's kept the interest going over the past ~10 years is the continuing novelty, flexibility & versatility of the products themselves. But as the novelty wears off in the newer platforms (mirrorless, iPhones) people become all too aware of the redundancy of their images. Same pics keep appearing over & over. Instagram is well-named. Saturation is the game. The few with imagination will survive.

In reply to:

tedolf: I hope that this is a family member.

This is a very unflattering/derogatory pose for a woman.

"Birdie" is also a derogatory word for a woman in UK affiliated countries.

"Look at the Birdie" is the title of the challenge, not of the photo. I think you are bringing a lot of your own baggage into your interpretations of this photo. Looks like classic street photography to me & apparently lots of others. (Though I'm sure the way things are going street photography will one day be banned for being politically incorrect.)

Fabulous shot. What breed is this? Looks like a short-haired pointer with the ears of a coon hound. Love it.

In reply to:

MtnBikerCalif: Is a µ4/3s sensor but not a µ4/3s camera? I don't see the markings for that on the camera.

Bigger question: will this lens work on the GX7?

All Panny LX cams use built-in lenses.

On Photographing Thailand with the Nokia Lumia 1020 article (148 comments in total)

The bitter pettiness of the most "popular" comments on this article perfectly illustrates the pathetic state of amateur photography (or, preferably as a category: camera ownership) these days. Small wonder the majority of talented members of DPR left the site long ago .

In reply to:

Jogger: I dont like the super exaggerated perspective from the near-fisheye lenses on the drones.

Better look away, then. You'll probably find plenty of more comfortable images to look at.

In reply to:

davids8560: I just want a Sony RX100 Mark III because they say it's the best, and it probably is the best, and I only want the best whatever. Because everybody knows only the best cameras take good pictures, and people who have the best things are smarter and better than those who don't. N-yeh!!!!

Hey, you're right, I never thought of that.
I'll have to order one today.

Congratulations! I'm curious as to how you determined the correct exposure, if you wouldn't mind sharing.
