On Canon PowerShot G16 Real-world Samples Gallery article (92 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: Shame that they are all grey skies. Makes the picture quality look worse than it likely is.

From my experience, I was very happy with the convenience, viewfinder, quality lens and simple layout of the dials on top of my G12. I won a lot of competitions with photos up to 20X30", but mostly 12x16 and 16x20s. (Noise terrible above ISO 400, though).
In February the lens froze while in a zoomed position. It was too expensive to repair or replace, so was unhappy with the G15 for not having a moveable LCD screen in back (though there was a lot of improvements I liked). I complained to Canon. I waited for the G16 and now even unhappier. I'm being patient. When any other new camera comes along that I like and has the moveable LCD screen, I plan to buy it. In the meantime, I have a few other cameras to use (that won't fit on my belt) but I will wait.

On Just Used! in the Nibs challenge (1 comment in total)

I came up with a better one. I know you've reached your limit. Is it possible for me to withdraw the one I entered and replace it with the new one?

I've been trying to load a photo, but keep getting, "You have reached your quota limit" yet there are only 47 entries. How come?

On White Flowers challenge (5 comments in total)

I was disappointed that my photo was disqualified this morning because "These are not real flowers"

I don't see anywhere in the rules that they had to be "Real" flowers. Shouldn't it have been up to the voters to decide with their votes?

PS I dd mention that they were Chihuly (glass) flowers when I entered.

Just tried to enter again and got the same message.??

Direct link | Posted on Feb 13, 2013 at 19:07 UTC as 4th comment

Entered a photo that was rejected that was shot on May 14, 2011.
Just got a red flag message :
"Image must be shot after the announcement date of the challenge."
You have, "there will be no DQ for any (wrong) date related issues."
I'm confused. Why was my photo rejected?

Last night and today, my photos won't upload on this challenge and the Creative look at Flowers challenge. Any idea what's happening?

On Dwelling or storage Shacks challenge (4 comments in total)

I've been trying to enter a photo since last night. When I click "enter" I receive this error message with an error code 404. When I googled it, it said it means "The requested page doesn't exist.

"Error

We encountered a connection problem when attempting to send your request dpreview.com galleries service. We apologise for the inconvenience. This issue could be caused by problems with internet connections. If you suspect that this is the case, please repeat you operation.

Would you know anything about this?

Hi fellas, I want to thank you for your suggestions.
I brightened up the reds, and added to the right side.
I wanted to crop off the top as you suggested, but the challenge filled before I could.
Thank you all very much!
Burton

On Clarinet in the Discuss and Improve "3 objects" (Please read all rules) challenge (5 comments in total)

Yes, I too, think a darker background would help.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 21, 2012 at 19:51 UTC as 3rd comment

The eggs need a little more contrast (ighlights) to make them look rounder.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 21, 2012 at 19:47 UTC as 3rd comment

I think you should crop out the dark background because it is distracting.

But don't do it until others agree with me.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 21, 2012 at 19:45 UTC as 1st comment

I agree with the others. Much too flat. Looks like they are floating. Reshooting with a partially back-lit shadow will put them back on the ground.

Too flat. Needs more contrast.

Thanks guys. I made the changes you suggested. Now I'm going to withdraw it and put in the new, improved version soon.

One of those advertising blow-up figures I've seen on the side of the road which moves as the wind blows.
