If DPR banned comments then people like me would just spew in the forums even more than we already do.

absentaneous: he's obviously a fan of andreas gursky.

You mean the scam artist who sells amateur snapshots for millions of dollars?

In reply to:

Mikhail Tal: I can't believe DPR actually fell for this cheap photoshop job. It's impossible for those people and their reflections to not be composited into the image after the fact. People don't just float in mid-air and if they had jumped from a helicopter or something, not only would you see the reflection of that in the water as well but you could never get enough exposure for those shots at such a fast shutter speed required to capture someone falling at a high speed.

It's not a bright sky at all it's sunset there's barely any light left, and these can't be at the top of a jump because their launch point is completely out of the frame so it must have come from overhead.

On photo A foggy start in the My best picture this week challenge (7 comments in total)

How did this photo win any challenge at all, let alone best picture of the week? It's the most boring image ever, no color or subject or anything, just a bunch of blur and grain.

Mikhail Tal: Why isn't this constant f/2.8 and $200?

For low light of course?

On photo Cold morning in the Winterscapes challenge (4 comments in total)

Nice job with that straight horizon. I don't think the colors are quite bland enough though.

Great product, there just aren't nearly enough superzooms on the market already. I need one for every day of the month.

Typical Canon - use the same sensor over and over and over and over...

On article Bad Weather = Good Photography (77 comments in total)

I don't see any examples of bad weather creating good pictures. ALl I see is bad weather ruining potentially good pictures. The lighting is awful and other than the last photo there's way too little contrast and saturation. They look like any other amateur snapshot taken in bad weather.

In reply to:

Frank_BR: The pictures show that those photographers were not too concerned with getting crazy shallow DOF or "artistic" bokeh :-)

Everything wrong with ugly shallow DOF when inappropriate. Which is way too often on DPR.

What's so gorgeous about these photos? They aren't nearly as vibrant, sharp, and contrasty as modern digital photos. They look just as dated as anything else from a bygone ear. Film is dead.

Mikhail Tal: Sad to say but now I am actually looking forward to the OM-D E-M1 already because it has on-sensor PDAF so I can actually photograph moving subjects without losing focus. Plus it will have 5-axis IBIS, weather sealing, and the always amazing Oly jpeg engine, and maybe another surprise or two. That said the GX7 is still an amazing camera that puts most DSLRs to shame.

If I have very bad taste, how would you describe your own taste, grotesque?

These pictures are as good as anything I've ever seen from any APS-C censor camera.

Yet another reason to prefer m4/3, where you can use a 35-100 lens instead of the failing 70-200 variety.
