On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (619 comments in total)

tjbates: Whichever way I look at it - the E-M10 looks like a marketing mistake in favour of the consumer. That doesn't happen very often.
The E-M10 is marketed as an entry level OM series camera - however on paper and I'm sure in reality - this camera looks to perform (purely in terms of image quality) as well as the E-M1. That's pretty special for a camera about half the price of it's bigger brother.

Really...the Nikon 5300 has an inferior sensor?

On John Stanmeyer wins World Press Photo of the Year article (83 comments in total)

where's the story? a picture is worth a thousand words...not here. Are they awaiting the arrival of their space ship? Is there a rock concert in the sky? It's pretty, but doesn't live on it's own.

bigdaddave: These are such sweet, innocent shots the technical skill gets lost, but it's there in spades.

Wonderful evocative stuff and for me anyway a way of showing what childhood should be like, outdoors in the fresh air with animals, not inside a stuffy room on an xbox.

beautiful images, whatever the journey she chose most wish they could find that path. Posed? So are the sunsets we see, the flowers that bloom, etc. The difference...talent.

Just another individual attempting to redefine “Art” and hoping to gain an audience. Boring!

Simply sad! No value images by someone hoping against hope to be noticed. Crap!

It's a crap image. And the judges need to be removed from ever judging anythinng again. Actually I don't blame the photographer as much as I do the judges.

Way over the top!
Needs to have the saturation and contrast lowered.

On Preview: Canon PowerShot G1 X large sensor zoom compact article (776 comments in total)

Well depending on the IQ it may be what some of us are looking for. I’m tired of carrying lens all the time. The MFT allure hasn’t captivated me. Just give me a camera with a decent zoom range and adequate focus speed along with good IQ and I’ll be happy. Would suspect this one will arrive at a $700.00 range though. Time will tell.

On Walker Evans: Cuba article (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marla: I love Walker Evans Photography - I have a copy of one of his books. Thank you for the article. Walker Evans is also a reminder to me of the power of the "subject" vs perfection within the frame.

I will agree with Marla definition describing his work. So true but so frequently lost in the images we see today.
