RStyga: Leica's fluff...

Problematic for their price; you can type that in upper case letters. I'd like to hear the arguments in favour of S2 vs 645D... that'd be entertaining..

So, nothing. I tend to forget sometimes that it's ultimately all about the profit, and announcements like this bring me back to reality. I get tempted, however, from time to time to subscribe to a more romantic view that historic manufacturers, like Leica, do it for the love of it; apparently, save the marketing dept.

RStyga: I wonder who's going to break the m4/3 16MP barrier first... It seems a struggle every time a resolution upgrade is expected on (m)4/3 systems.

I guess someone, then, needs to inform Canon, Sony, and Nikon to stop increasing resolution and switch back to lower MP... But something tells me that it has been a good thing that Canon moved on from 12MP 5D to 22MP 5D III... It is one thing that m4/3 sensors are reaching their limit and another whether more resolution can be actually used to improve IQ and crop tolerance. The 4/3 initiative committee should have thought of the innate limitation of a smaller sensor.

Now, there is a good move! It has been painful to watch the RAW conversion saga of X Trans images. This could be a solid performer without dramas.

Unfortunately, shutterbug98, this photo was uploaded some time ago and it is not easy now to find and retrieve the original in order to present you with an alternative composition.

Hi utmostfrog,
1:1 maximizes the distance from the boat, which was the goal. No, there no highlight burning on the right side, just blue softening under the daylight; I guess it too served the mood to my liking (subjective). Best

Hi purelightglow,
Do you refer to my experience being there? If yes, I'm afraid it would require more than a few sentences. Being my homeland and Attica the place I grew up, the experience is substantial. Perhaps it would be better to visit my DPR gallery and look at three photos taken at the same location, two of the temple itself and another landscape shot (a sunset).
Regards

I was at the Temple of Poseidon overlooking the Mediterranean.

MiltonC, It was a dilemma whether to allow a longer boat trail to show intense movement or impose a stronger rule of thirds to support the vastness of the sea. I eventually chose the latter.

On Plitvice Lakes in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (13 comments in total)

Very nice composition except for the foreground on the left that detracts from the overall impression. The vignetting is not enough to create a special look-through-a-hole effect and looks like a simple overlook and lens weakness; as such it does not look very desirable. Best,

On skywards Ho in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (15 comments in total)

This looks like a test shot... I'm sorry for my rather dismissive feedback...

If the person was closer to the camera it would probably be OK to use this technique of selective desaturation. As it is, I guess you were trying to make it stand out? You could still do it, however, in B/W since orange could be brightened enough to be visible in the field even without colour.

On A bend in the road in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (16 comments in total)

I like the contrast and the road's colour. Maybe the sky could be a bit more interesting or darker perhaps?

On Obedience in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (12 comments in total)

I'm not very keen about the sign... It looks misplaced in the composition, rather pasted there. Just my opinion, of course. Best,

In reply to:

CalBoy87: It has a nice colors and I like the use of negative space. I would crop the shot, to make the human element much larger in relation to the rest of the space. Also agreed with SM82 comment regarding burning the corners of the shot.

Thank you both for your constructive comments. If I'm allowed to respond (admin: please remove my comment, otherwise) the human element is not large on purpose, in order to accentuate the vastness of the sea in relation to the human element.

On 2_0391 in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (19 comments in total)

Excellent focus balance between the foreground and background. I also like the colours, sky and water being almost colour-aligned. On the negative side, I'm a bit confused on the clarity of the overall composition, and that the human element is almost invisible.

The texture of the foreground has a very strong impact to the eyes. However, the burnt out sky is a negative as well as the half-shadowed human forms (neither purely shadows nor clearly visible). I like it.

The camera elevation makes this composition interesting. However, I'm not sure the people are adding or detracting from it. Best,
