On Green fingered in the Fujifilm Finepix S Series challenge (1 comment in total)

Congratulations on your second place photo, although also congratulations for your first spot win. It has a lot of merit on you plan the shot. But some jow this ismy favoutite one for a first place. The rough hard strong working hands contrast with the delicate and some how defenseless little flowered plant.

Wildbegonia: Beautiful. Congratulations on this well crafted photo. You should write an article on microphotography and submit it to DP....just an idea.

Thank you dear friend, I am just fascinated at the idea of taking photos of microscopy universes. Simply love Science.

On Manta Point in the Underwater Photography challenge (7 comments in total)

What a stunning photograph! Have it print in the largest format possible without noise, and it (with a rest sofa) should be the only piece in your living room.

petebryan: At last we're going back to articulated / flippy screens, much better than tilting, so much more flexible. Well done Olympus.

Just unnoticeable slightly. But once you discover its potential, you will miss it. I like to take photos with uncommon angles of view for which the full articulated screen is very helpful, for example, 'ant's view' takes where you almost lay flat on the floor.

FujLiver: I love Sony, Fuji and Leica, but I have to say that this 40mp mode is very very clever

Effectively I can utilize the normal 16mp for shooting about but use 40mp for my landscapes. Admittedly I don't use a tripod but I am an expert in balancing on walls ;)

Agree.

In reply to:

ecm: Very nice, Olympus! Especially excited to see the fully articulated screen - something I didn't miss until I had one..... also the bounce and swivel flash.

not quite as good as the D810, but way too close - the 45mm f/1.8 seems to be soft in the corners compared to the Nikon lens.

So, if it can combine 8 shots to make a 40 MP photo, can it also use 8 shots to average out the noise and increase fine detail in high ISO situations?

Agree about the fully, articulated screen.

geo444: " the concept of light " may call very different explanations :
for a tree or a plant, light is its food !
for an optician, visible light is a set of frequencies from 400 to 720 nm.
for a believer, light is sometimes god ?
for a mariner, a traveler, light from Stars or beacons shows the way to go.
for a quantum theory follower, light is just random particles !
for a photographer, light is a tool...

Ah! Love science!

Yes, but it is a scientific view of what light is, makes me think of Newton. Like it.

Wildbegonia: After 30 years Nike is not able to create a new original image/idea for its products? Show some creativity guys! It is like seeing the same cereal commertial over again, but instead of seing a family in its 1960's clothes and kitchen decor, we have the same family wearing 2010's fashion and kitchen. Weak case for Nike I am afraid.

Oh! I see now too., thank you leonche64. Nike's argument will hold water? Well, this will be a very interesting debate on the issue of intellectual property. Would love to have the priviledge to attend to such a court case.

Usually the logo stays the same, that does not changes, it is the digital print of the company. What can be changed is the images used to promote the logo( compamy) that should chsnge. I mean, does Nike designs shoes only for basketbal play?
