In reply to:

Stitzer23: I need background blur on a waist up portrait. Can the RX10 deliver? Please DPR, make this shot a standard in your samples.

Check out page 8. There's a portrait with quite nice shallow DOF in there.

In reply to:

JoeR: Camera & lens combination not likely. I don't think there is an adaptor to mount Canon lenses on Nikon cameras.

Sure there is--the quality just might not be optimal with the glass correction element on the adapter (for focusing to infinity).

Beautiful shot, btw!

In reply to:

steve_hoge: Really no vert/horiz orientation sensor? Surely this is a typo.

I believe EX1 didn't have it either, so it "makes sense" at that level I guess.

The price of people's old color filters will go through the roof on eBay :)

Andreas Stuebs: Nice... But is this still photography?

Not all of it, there are also ships and a person running at the beach.

(har-har)

But seriously, history has shown that the meaning of the word 'photography' can be very broad. From dark room tricks to slicing up the negative and writing on it by scratching, all the way to photoGRAMS... People have always liked to find ways to express themselves by pushing the boundary of what constitutes 'photography'. To me, it seems that only the tools have shifted to digital a digital realm.

On The lighthouse in the Virginia Woolf's "To The Lighthouse" challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

Smecta: This IS an HDR. The tree branches' endings are too dark, and you missed to darken a pair of holes in the bridge near the lighthouse. Its clearly an HDR. I don't like when people lie..

To me it seems more like a selection was applied to all elements but the sky and then a Curves adjustment (or similar) was applied to this part of the image to bring up the shadows. I won't comment further on the rules of the challenge, but to me this doesn't seem to be a HDR - at least in the traditional sense (multiple exposures combined into one image).

On Der Lok-Führer in the Squeaky wheel gets the oil challenge (5 comments in total)

...that while it could be less processed (it's not like I'm saying it looks anywhere near 'traditional', for example), I think it would then be merely 'different', not necessarily 'better' (or worse for that matter).

I've got to respectfully disagree with GeorgeZ, I think the end result is tastefully post-processed. Each to their own, (like he implied with 'IMHO').
