Tim_Owel: So many pretentious people, with no sense of humor. The very fact that so many of you have risen to comment, means that this challenge has served it's purpose. :D
It doesn't have to be a stranger...
Cool shot, well done.
Nice detail :-)
I liked this slug with the water droplets :-)
Nice colours :-)
The nice big slug got it, well done !
Although I am participating in this challenge, there are a few shots I find of dubious accetability (I hope mine will be considered fine...voting and subsequent comments will tell!). E.g. shots 'stolen' without the subject's knowledge seem disrespectful imho.Stricter rules and hosting might have been better here...
Why do most not understand that these are aimed at P&S users that want a fast focussing and fast action (good iso 3200 and high fps)?A great kid shooter.I'll wait to see what Canon comes out with, but I won't hold my breath...!
A lot of pictures on a grey day will often look dull, needs some sunlight to compare...
P&S camera with good iso3200, high fps and fast focussing, really great for taking kids doing sport.How many struggle when kids and pets are running around...?Remember, this is not aimed at pros and enthusiasts.
cheddargav: As someone else has pointed out, these are showing nothing better than camera phone quality. It's clever marketing by Nikon but I see nothing here to excite photographers, I'd go as far to say that they've just made m4/3 look like an even better option by releasing this camera - why would you get it over an E-PM1 for example?Strange....
For some, high fps with very fast focussing...
Just love that crowd!
Great feeling of motion
moimoi: 30 s shutter speed really? How can people look so motionless? Strange.
Yes, you need a long shutter speed to capture fireworks and get the nice trails. What you get is then the fireworks that went up during 30 seconds (hence tripod necessary). No tricks, the people are just not moving much, but the flags upper left are!
Great use of the lens!
Great crowd and show shot :-)
Nicely captured :-)
