On Going Home in the The American Cowboy challenge (8 comments in total)

Image had potential but it is cropped poorly with the horse and rancher dead center in the frame. The cropping takes away a lot of the potential impact. Appears to be a bit overexposed as well and this also takes away some of the atmosphere of the overall environment.

Hopefully this was captured as a raw image file and it is not so tightly cropped. Shows the importance of taking a series of shots at different zoom settings so as to have options later in post processing.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1914 comments in total)

What was overlooked is how when changes are made to camera settings such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. the entire rear LCD screen displays everything and uses a very large font that is more than 10x what one would usually see on a rear or top display on a Nikon camera.

It is interesting that Nikon put the tilt LCD screen on the D750 but not on the premier landscape photography camera from Nikon, the D810. With landscape shooting and in particular when using live view and a PC-E lens the ability to tilt the display with the tripod mounted camera is a tremendous benefit. Somebody's ego got in the way of adding this feature and functionality to the D8xx cameras.

I want GPS for auto geotagging of pictures. Wifi is of no value to anyone with a SD card reader.

curlyone: I was using photoshop 3 about 20 years ago,

Problems arise when a company has a monopoly and needs to raise revenue by forcing people to buy upgrades. Get a new digital camera and you have to purchase the latest version of Photoshop. My first version of Photoshop was 3 and that was because Adobe bought out the software company whose product I was using and killed the software. They did that with the company that produced the product that became Lightroom, Adobe did it with Pagemaker, and they did it with Macromedia which produced Freehand and Flash. Adobe has through the years bought up its competition until now there are no competitors for Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc. and Apple is not really a competitor when they only produce software versions that will run only on Apple computers.

This is reflected in the price of the Adobe software and their low level of customer service.

The AF improvements are going to be of little or no value in real world situations. One still has to select the point of focus, only now with a finger, and then reframe the shot which is not going to be practical for photographing anything that moves.

Both an optical viewfinder and a separate focus point selector button is needed to make this type of camera truly practical for shooting moving subjects. For now a small DSLR is far superior in these two aspects and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.
