I am very luck to see the one of the first jumbo jets that came to India at Bombay during its maiden arrival at Santa Cruz airport in 1970. It was so huge, it dwarfed all other airplanes around it like toys.

They should make mounts for Nikon and other lenses. Filmmakers like myself who have plenty of Nikon lenses, can use them on Blackmagic, and their marketshare also increases!

Jim Salvas: There are a lot of jokes here, but seriously, I think one of the benefits of photography is that it can get you involved with unfamiliar people, places and things. That's the challenge and the benefit for the brain, not the technical side of it.

The "enhanced observation" of photography means you have to think and engage.

that's only one of the benefits, and not the only benefit. Understanding technicalities, especially for creativity needs more exercise for the brain. It's even more bigger exercise while making films, editing, giving special effects, etc.

May be you are absolutely right! I just crossed 60. I started photography in 1982 and now reached the stage of making small full high definition films for my clients with my D800E. I go to locations, shoot film, do complete editing on FCP with background music, effects, colour grading, colour corrections, etc. all single handedly. Script and voice-over are done professionally from outside sources. Everyday, I spend at least two hours learning new things about film making. I have extremely good memory power and I am proud about all my activities.

Very inspirational images. Barbara Cole's photograph is very stunning. Some guidelines to achieve this quality, would be greatly welcome.

Looks are also very important. Designers of Samsung cameras should get cue and inspiration from other world class makers for giving better looks to their product. Present design is not at all up to the mark.

absentaneous: I keep observing that in such "competitions" the only factor to actually get picked is luck and more luck. I mean you could open any page on any photography social website and pick a photograph of the same quality and insight in no time. I mean you don't really need a jury for these things. it would be the same if they simply put all the names in a big jar and then pick 30 names out of it. same result, same quality. guaranteed.

Very well said and it is a fact.

Though I am a Nikon user for more than three decades, I love this camera because of its simplicity in every respect and a high-class professional look. Wish this camera will be a great super hit all over the world.

The determination in his eyes is very clear in this photograph. Kudos for capturing the perfect moment. Unfortunately, there are millions of very young children living life losing their precious childhood.
