The monkey saw the photographer taking pictures, so he took pictures. Then the photographer got a lawyer; if the monkey's smart, he'll get a lawyer too. Earth may really turn out to be the planet of the apes.

It's a good photo but I think it would be better without the tv.

Anyone remember the giants in Gulliver's Travels-- a pretty maid with hairs on her body big as pack ropes-- Now we have it!

I like how the 50 mm. 1.4 turned into a 135 on the camera, apparently without a converter. You guys sure do know good tricks.

mikusa: What's the thing above her head that looks like a floating car-seat cover?!

Your car-seat covers don't float?

Cy Cheze: A night SCUBA dive. Everything inky black, save a small swath illuminated by strobe. No way to guess what lurks in the dark, or what could suddenly lunge into view. Scarey. Who wouldn't take fright and lose grip on the camera? But what good would the camera be at all?

Does the O ring have to be changed now? (just bought first underwater housing.)

On Liberator B24 bomber in the Aviation Museums challenge (8 comments in total)

Conaissez vous: The Libertor's a very fine ship
constructed of rivets and tin,
with a speed of over 200,
the plane with a headwind built in.
Why did I join the Air Force?
Mother, dear Mother, knew best;
Here I lie 'neath the wreckage
Liberator all over my chest.

Beautiful woman, beautiful shot, beautiful lens-- what was the camera and lens?

How did the Rover take a picture of itself from a camera on a jointed arm (I assume) without showing part of the arm? Was the arm that raised the camera above the Rover extended so circuitously that it's out of the picture or in a blind spot? Is this a duh question?

In reply to:

clear glass: If the width of the head is about 1/4 of the width of the image, I find the eyelashes a useful indication of lens sharpness at maximum sharpness if the person is not wearing mascara.

Sorry: I meant to say: If the width of a front view of the face is 1/4 the width of a horizontal image, I find the eyelashes a useful indication of lens sharpness at maximum aperture if the woman is not wearing mascara (because it thickens the apparent width of the lashes).

Hey, combatmedic80, How would your skin look that close-up?

For a rough guide to sharpness, I look at eyelashes in a portrait where the head occupies a quarter of the field or less, but the eyelashes of the women in..04 (two women, left one in focus) are enlarged by mascara which obscures lens performance.

dI wonder if all touch screens need a protective film. I don't use the touch screens because I don't want to clean them or put on a film.
