eyeport: Let me summarize...
This is one of the most popular subjects shown on DPR. I wonder what's so special about this ghost town house? Sand in the house with a bit of sunlight shining through...we've probably seen similar angle and similar HDR technique about a thousand times that it feels like vacation photos to me now.
One other frequent top on DPR is how to photograph and process iceberg in iceland!
Would like to see more unique subjects and fresh perspectives.
It wasn't HDR...
makofoto: The couple doing this last year was killed by a car inThailand. How romantic ...
A tragic accident. People die every day. What's your point?
(unknown member): 'With a bicycle and a humble attitude you can travel to the heart of a culture."
I wouldn't call it "humble" to think you can actually "travel to the heart of any culture" just because you are on a bike. I'd call that naive and rather arrogant.The photos, I'm sorry to say, are also nothing really special.
That you find the photographer arrogant probably reflects more on yourself than him.
Wasn't #5 part of a real time video?
As an out of warranty D600 owner, with the dust issue, this is good news. I've been planning to send it in and hope for the best, but this is a relief. Yes, a little late in coming, but I'll take what I can get.
It's going to interesting in the future if/when CS6 doesn't support the latest cameras. Something will have to give...
Segaman: Interesting, i,m going to think twice about buying Nikoń´s D600, maybe just going to wait or get in the meanwhile a D7100
About the only reason to get a d600 now is the discount, which may or may not be worth it to some.
LarH: Sorry Nokia, your dng files don't open in photoshop cs3.
Sorry, your CS3 doesn't open Nokia dng files.
mb65: I never liked this photo. The expression of the girl is simply exaggerated in an unnatural way. But given the results and positive comments I am obviously wrong.Best regardsMattia
Steve McCurry just called to tell you he doesn't care.
In a few months when used D610's start appearing in the marketplace, it's going to be a chore selling a used D600. Doesn't affect me because I always planned on keeping it for at least 5 years, but it still leaves a bad taste.
ranalli: Nikon could have released a better product but I'm astounded by how many here were early adopters of a $2K camera.
I never buy anything right off the bat. Really no point in that when the current gear works fine.
I think the prospect of an more affordable jump to FX caused more early adopters than usual.
Kim Letkeman: Lovely image from the mountain upwards ... the water is incongruently devoid of the Milky-Way and filled with blurred and too bright individual stars. Although it was shot legitimately, this is a case where subduing the stars in the water part of the image and perhaps overlaying at least a hint of a reflection of the Milky Way would -- in my opinion at least -- dramatically enhance an already very nice image.
You really can't win around here. If he'd used Photoshop to create that effect then it would be labeled a fake.
DanielFjall: Ofcourse we'll talk about what's wrong with the article rather then it's interesting content. Is nit-picking everyting a bad habit from photography? I really appreciate the effort finding these beautiful images. Well done!
I don't think its "politically correct" to assume people will find a giant river of animal blood distasteful. I think the pictures are meant to be evocative and provoke reflection, not "oh that's pretty!". But to each their own.
You realize what these photos are , don't you? Lakes of animal blood and waste. They're not meant to be beautiful.
The feedlot photo is highly disturbing.
WT Jones: Nothing interesting here in my opinion. You have seen one arial photo, you have seen them all really.
I don't remember seeing a giant lake of blood, myself.
Buzz Lightyear: It's hard to beat images of any kind produced by a $3000 camera, coupled with a $1200 lens! That's not to take away from you excellent shot, Roman. I'm just jealous!
Its just as easy to take a terrible photo with a D800 as any other camera.
Brilliant image. I love that the shadows were kept as is.
Charles C Lloyd: I would be very proud to make such fine images. My only issue is that the tiny people on the horizon are distracting. Are these pictures about the waterfall, or the tiny people?
i would think they are there to give a sense of scale..
