On photo The crowd in the Anything challenge (1 comment in total)

How did this get such a high score?

Honestly, what percent of your photos are taken at higher than ISO 1600? For almost everybody it will be 1% or less.

On photo 03b in the ~ Yellow ~ challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice image but I think it got a low score because there was too much green. It would have done better if you'd cropped it at the four center leaves.

On article Nikon V1 and J1 - hands-on first impressions (245 comments in total)

I've got to admit, even though I am unexcited about the camera itself, those awesome color choices almost make me want one. Think how cool it would look to have a red camera with a green lens! Or Teal with a pink lens!

27 is a newbie's idea of a wide angle lens. 24 is a skilled photographer's idea of a wide angle lens.

F/2.8 is a newbie's idea of a fast prime. F/1.8 is a skilled photographer's idea of a fast prime.

On photo Let's Talk in the Bar advertisement: Happy hour challenge (4 comments in total)

This might be the worst challenge winning photo I've seen. You can't see anything, the people are pitch black, their heads are chopped off, there's no detail, and I have no idea what's going on.

Amazing shot, perfect angle and I would like to know how you got the sky to look like that.

On article Nikon shares rise as Nikkei suggests mirrorless launch (115 comments in total)

Why anyone would pay that much for a 2.7x crop is beyond me. There are so many better options. Nikon is going to find that its brand won't have nearly as much power in the mirrorless market.

How do you make a shot like this? What were you shooting?

On photo Orchid in the A picture you want people to comment challenge (2 comments in total)

Surprised that nobody commented on this photo. Composition is very nice and the color is outstanding. There are a couple framing issues though. First, obviously the bottom got chopped off, which is unfortunate. Also, personally i Ould prefer a slightly tighter crop on the right side, maybe about half the distance between the edge and the flower.

Another thing I notice is that the focus appears to be off (too far back). If you had focused farther on the right side of the flower, it might all be in focus, as it should be (imo).

Yawn. Might make a decent gift for the girlfriend. I don't see anybody with so much as a passing interest in photography (as opposed to snapshooting) touching this camera with a ten-foot pole.

Really nice looking camera, why can't canikon make cameras that look like this? black is pretty boring when everyone has it...

the funniest part is that they are charging $300 FOR ThE KIT LENS!!! are they out of their minds???

Wow this could be a real game changer. Out of focus photos are so annoying. I will seriously consider this as long as it isn't outrageously expensive.

In reply to:

drwho9437: Prepare to be inundated with inane and pointless comments that add nothing but noise to the conversation like almost all social media.

At least now maybe those comments will be kept off the forums.
