  • Donald B, Great photos! You have mastered macro.
  • I like all of them but I like the 6:20 shot the best.  If it were mine it would be hanging on  my wall.
  • It is a very good photo, and the contrast with the ant is great, I would advise readers however that Bumble Bees, as in the photo, unlike honey bees, can sting numerous times. I do some flower ...
  • Replied in the next step
    Photography is (for me) about content. There are no photographs from the masters who reigned in the 1940s through the 199os that were great because of sharpness or camera. The cameras and lenses I ...
  • Replied in the next step
    Andy, I have been involved in photography since I was 12 years old. I will be 73 on 4/27. I speak from experience not supposition. What you are experiencing is normal. We learn our art/craft by ...
  • You did not make a mistake selecting the Lx100. I am sure of that.
  • Thanks Sam  Although I expect to keep using Aperture for the foreseeable future, while I wait to see if 3rd parties make some good add-ons and plug-ins. If that does not happen, it is quite ...
  • Sam, I do not like the user interface to start with. I find its controls to be unintuitive and clunky. I think the Help files are poorly organized and not always very helpful. It does integrate ...
  • You have made a test that bears no relationship to photography. I appreciate that you have asked a question that requires a scientific explanation. Not being a scientist, I have no answer. Photogra ...
  • I think there are no answers to it based upon hours of research. Photos is like iPhoto, but better in some ways. However for me, I extensively used the brushes in Aperture to do local corrections. ...
  • Ii have been shooting digital only since 2002 and averaged about 40,000 exposures a year on pro assignments until 2014 when I retired. I never had a CF or SD card failure. However, your point is ...
  • I understand your concern about redundant back up, but I believe that SD cards are the least susceptible storage media and require no back up unless you might expose them to conditions in which ...
  • The simple answer is NO!

    I became a Pro user of Aperture when it was first released. I have used it ever since. I do not like LR or other software.

    Photos is a nice amateur product for making...

  • My solution to the problem is simple, inexpensive, and very reliable.  My cameras use SD cards. SD cards are durable, x-ray proof, waterproof, easily carried, not subject to being disabled by ...
  • If there are enough yes votes, I will set up a petition drive through Change.org.  That will allow DPR and other forum users to sign on. Of course, it will take thousands of signers to make a ...
  • Under US Law the doctrine of substantial similarity is used to determine copyright infringement. No one, I REPEAT – NO ONE, can make that judgement without seeing the images in question. You need ...
  • Replied in Which LX100 ?
    I think the John Lewis deal is the best alternative. As previously pointed out there are reports of 'out-of-the box- failures' with the Lx100. Not many, but if you get one you want a good return ...
  • I actually agree with you 100%.  Unusual for me to be so entirely aligned.
  • In response to some of the disagreeing positions above, I do not think Thom Hogam meant that technology was important. We all know it is. I believe he was simply saying that ultimately it is the ...
  • Ok, at the risk of incurring the wrath of some who have replied in this thread, I am saying that the previous recommendations are good but not best. My qualifications: 50 years as a pro including ...
