Khazaad: Having a Note 3 I feel oddly satisfied that the 4 is underwhelming. Extended validation for keeping what you already have feels like a relief sometimes.
Yeah, I have no desire to upgrade phones every year, or every two years for that matter. I do find enough in the Note 4 to upgrade from my Note 2, though, including Sprint tri-band LTE for data, better screen, better camera, and some of the other improvements. The Note 3 was not compelling for me.
Another win for a nice image!http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=719470
Thanks! Yes, I'm a big fan of the Panasonic 20mm lens: small, fast, and very good IQ, at a reasonable price.
Thanks. My first challenge win, after entering many, and with a compact! Butler Gulch, Colorado.
Smoking marijuana is now legal in Colorado, where I live and shoot pictures. Just sayin' ;-)
wolfytom: I don't get it? Why deform a pretty girl's face?Surely the use of any 'extra' should add to the pic, not diminish it?
This is basically s photo of a pretty little girl, what does the fish eye add?
Sir, is there no whimsical bone in your body?
That's so sad; you're utterly trapped in your rectilinear box!
OMG! This is adorable! Great shot!
or flies that are eating butter?
Ich bin ein Berliner!
Wow! Fabulous shot!
Lovely subject, lovely image, my favorite!
DotCom Editor: "The most unique new feature of the GX7 is its flip-up electronic viewfinder."
Something can't be more unique than something else. Unique is an absolute. Either something is unique, or it is not. There is no such thing as degrees of uniqueness.
In light of other recent Adobe news, this sounds ominous: 'what Adobe has in store for photographers.'
Really nice photo of Winston Hendrickson, above. Cool, calm, collected. "We've carefully thought this through. We knew a lot of people would be pi$$ed. Frankly, my dear, we don't give a damn."
I hear ya, Winston!
Not my photo, an edit of one posted in a thread by someone else.
Good photo with great perspective, and amazing model, complete with realistic grime and paint chips. It looks like it's seen a lot of flight hours! Just curious how long that model plane is, and if it's the photographer's work.
I love my Note 2. I don't use the camera all that much, but it strikes me as decent for a cell phone (I don't have huge expectations), and it's always with me.
The Note 2 will accept a 64GB micro SD card. It's easy to load photos taken with a better camera, and the big screen provides a great way to show them to family and friends.
Fun article to read, and an intriguing insight into the world of the pro photographers responsible for the great images we are so accustomed to seeing. Thanks to Dean, John, and DPR for this!
ConanFuji: If you want pics of Sleeping Dogs, then you should title it Sleeping Dogs.Sleepy means it's on the verge of sleeping.
Whoa! ConanFuji (a/k/a Mr. "I'll run my challenges by my own wacky rules and if you express any negative comments, I'll just delete them") posts a super-picky comment about another host's challenge. Actually CF, this host is pretty clear as to what this challenge is about. And although not all sleepy dogs are sleeping, it's probably true that all sleeping dogs are sleepy.
brentbrent: You know, there are many challenge hosts who get negative comments of one sort or the other about the challenge. Most of them don't just delete them.
Both positive and negative comments can contribute to a discussion, as this discussion illustrates, once you stopped deleting my comments. The mindset that one is entitled to simply delete comments that one finds negative or sarcastic is one with which I disagree. Perhaps it is a cultural difference.
I do agree with you on one point. I find challenges with greater than 100 entries to be bigger than I generally care to look through, and if I'm going to vote on entries, I prefer the limit to be 50 or 75.
But we just disagree on the merits of limiting a challenge to past challenge winners. As I said, the results of this one speak for themselves.
