On HDR for the Rest of Us article (199 comments in total)

Thank you for this article, I am also a big fan of natural looking HDR, I could not stand surreal HDR. I would have like more details and example of reading the histogram.

In your car example, how did you know to use more over exposed shot vs. just the 0, +2 and -2 EV?

On Where I Have Been Last Night challenge (8 comments in total)
In reply to:

tasad: "Where I have been last night" ... and no restrictions about "capture date rules" ?

Will you increase the submission limit? 50 will fill up fast if there is no capture date rule. The title is likewise misleading, I like the title but it kinda defeats the purpose of "last night" ;)

On Americana, through the eyes of Pete Turner challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

chrisby: Dear hosts, I assume you require only the style of Americana and the American Way, but the photo could be taken anywhere in the world; is that true?

Very good question. I do hope that this is possible since the site is international.

Rajamurthy: There is more anxiety and fear in the eyes than the claim of the title.

Werli thanks for taking time to explain the extra story behind the image. Congratulations again.

On Editing on the road article (114 comments in total)
In reply to:

TomServoCA: Interesting observations.

I have to say though, I guess you never travel with your wife. If I spent the evenings in the hotel room hunched over a computer I'd be a bachelor again so fast it would make your head spin. Evening is time for a nice leisurely dinner, some drinks and then bed.

I can't shoot 500 images a day, unless I'm shooting a hockey tournament. When travel I still like to listen to the stories of my subjects and just sit and groove and becoming part of the scene and *then* take the picture. I'd rather have a handful of shots that were thought out with a story than one of everything, even if I miss something that *everyone* is shooting.

I'll take the hit and edit at home post trip. I keep a diary and notebook and do take a GPS tagged shot with the cellphone so I can localize so going back isn't all that hard.

But the title says "Editing on the road".

I think the point of "reviewing the days images" helps to see if your images on a certain lens and body combination works well or needs to be focus/calibrated well.

I travel with my family most of the time and on a good shooting day, if I average 500-700 per day then I am contented. And yes it is a burden to review them but I always think that most likely we wont be back in this place so I take the shot anyway.

Also to agree with your point, it is difficult to balance the family and the photography during travel. Most of the time I just focus on one at a time. Meaning if its with the family, I lay down the camera and go for snapshots, then I reserve the time for photography during sunsets or sunrise if I wasn't too tired the night before.

On Editing on the road article (114 comments in total)

Great Article. One concern though is the laptop HD, maybe it is not a bad idea to save on two external hard drive instead of just one in the Laptop HD, as this may tend to slow down the laptop when editing.

In reply to:

Tim in upstate NY: These posts, some of them, show that DPR has become a magnet for malcontents who lack civility and only want to tear down those who have gained recognition by making clever comments but the unintended result is to embarrass themselves along with this site.

I could not have said it better. I think Bolt earned it so give it his time to shine.
