babalu: In the old days of computer tec, the operator screens of the 3270 were black background and green characters. At that time the explanation was that that was the least strenous for the eyes. I can't remember visual screens of text where the background was white. It does hurt the eye. A shade of grey would be more gentle. (one of the proverbial 50 shades of Grey :)) )
Hi , probably depends on the device your'e using to look into DPR's site. However, I believe the main issue is about how easy it feels to look at.:))

Reminds me of the Dr. Strangelove opening film sequence... good capture from a very privileged shooting point .
Visited Photokina on Thursday 18th, with the one purpose to talk to the Olympus tech people about the problem of the indeletable color blothes that sunshine exposure into the EVF will cause in the EVF optics if the diopter wheel is set to a high positive number .The head of tech Support in their "first-aid boot" , a gentleman from Japan,acknowledged that they know about the problem (which is known to have affected both the E-M1 and the E-M10 top models), but that there is no solution yet .I gave him printouts of the DPR micro four thirds forum threads dealing with the issue, as well as a few other threads in Germany. They promissed to look into the issue . here is the list of DPR threads dealing with this :
You raise and shine with your double win ! Again some beautiful examples of what can be done with reversed lenses, and a fascinating insight into the world of insects. Congratulations !
Tremendous impact ! Very good win !Btw, what car is this ? Seems a Citroen, but what model ?Oh, OK, got it, its a Citroën DS3 WRC .
Fantastic capture !
:) :) :)
summicron: Thx, as always Ruth, for your thoughtful comment! It was indeed amazing watching these guys not only hop from berg to berg, but also swim with ease.
..that they can swim was clear, even submerge in pursuit of whatever prey is at paw ... but such leaps ? this was new to me, and it's your absolute merit to have published it. Congratulations to a spectacular and very beautiful image !
Very charming capture ! I especially like the effect of the tree trunk pointing to the southern constellation like a finger of a giant hand. Congratulations !
Very impressive picture, congratulations!
#1 is really spectacular, such captures stamp themselves in our visual memory.
Congrats to yet another (double) spectacular old steamhorse win! Fantastic colors here .Btw, were these old tracks really double ? I allways thought it was one single track back then, with the train using it either eastt or west bound ?
Strangely funny capture, very good !
Yeah, that's an axe allright . Congratulations !
Very interesting capture, I really like this photo.
The monkey seems to be a better keeper than some . Congratulations !
Great shot... by the way, I believe that the reverse lens setting is a matter of do or die as far as focus spot is concerned -actually a matter of a millimeter or so- it needs great skill to capture the right spot/moment. Congrats !
Perfectly frozen in the air. Congratulations !
...there seems to be no insect who's safe against your reverse technique . Amazing detail. Keep on the good work !
