  • Replied in Nope
    What I see is most flags representing a citizen using a firearm to apply (or attempt to) the death sentence on (attempted)burglary/trespassing. I clicked a few and saw very few lives saved ...

  • Yes, the three exposures were at -2, 0 and +2 stops exposure. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenEXR OpenEXR is a high dynamic range imaging image file format, released as an open standard along ...
  • I can only comment on the 8-16mm which I've found to be an awesome lens with great sharpness and clarity. It is said to be quite a bit sharper than both 10-20's but to me that's hearsay as I've ...
  • Possible miscommunicationon my side here I see. What I meant was 3 individual long exposures (raw files) which I then proceeded to align, merge to an EXR file and tonemap.
  • Replied in I'm assuming
    What is interesting is your assumptions. I'd be the last to call the US "land of the free" - it's quite a messed up place and I'm not at all unhappy I do not have to call it home. However, this ...
  • Replied in I'm assuming
    the US, like most other countries, has a proper flag protocol embedded in law. That protocol will tell you when to fly flags and when not, what is dignified and proper use of such a national ...

    Triple tonemapped long exposures of some Thames river rapids near the Marlow locks

  • According to the Wikipedia page the total area covers some 27 square kilometers between 10 and 18 kilometers from the coast. A wind turbine tower is pretty tall which probably means you only see ...
  • It's a wind-turbine park about 20 clicks out to sea, generating electricity for 100000 households made up out of 36 windturbines of 3 MW each.
  • I often forget the GR and rely on my K-5 IIs to deal with seascapes, primarily because of its weather-sealing. Last night was fairly wind-free so I let the GR look out over the Northsea just after ...
  • Add Digikam to the mix as a stand-in for Lightroom and Krita for Photoshop I use a mixture of UFRaw, Digikam and Gimp All of the above should have the appropriate PPA's ready for a one-click ...
  • Well, Henry's over in Toronto is indeed a solid source for all things Pentax. You could have purchased online from a number of stores in NYC who carry loads of Pentax stuff but that was not where ...

    Cinese spammer and eBayer selling inferior crap from an ebay page full with spelling mistakes.

  • U UV filter is utterly useless on a DSLR and a CPL should only be used when it serves a purpose. Having a combination of the 2 on your lens(es) the whole time? Ughhh! Not a very sane thing to do. ...
