In reply to:

km25: That 90mm is gooing to a very sallow DOF, it will be 135mm f/2.0. The lens I may want is 16mm f1.4. For me 24mm is wide enough, f/1.4 would be nice. What agreat combo, 16mm f1.4, 23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2 low light heaven.

Fuji has a 1.5x crop factor, not 1.6x like Canon.

Kodachrome200: I am curious what Waltons could be claiming. Unless the photographer signed something give them the rights witch it seems they didnt they dont have a leg to stand on

It's possible the law was different at the time the photos were taken.

On Selfie challenge (4 comments in total)

I realize the definition of 'portrait' is a little fuzzy, but for this challenge I'm going to require that at least the face be visible.

On Get the story behind the photograph article (11 comments in total)

Verve Photo uses a similar format, although a little more compact. Each post is a single documentary photo along with the photographer's description of how it came to be.

In reply to:

Wolfgang Fieger: Samyang lenses are without any aperture control or EXIF information! Only for Nikon EXIF data and aperture control are offered. Without this a lens is quite useless as you are going to close the aperture actually before taking the picture, which leads to the fact, that the camera doesn't get the full light for metering and the viewer. If you are using an EVF you still have a viewable picture, but the focus peeking won't work as everything gets marked as sharp in the viewer: with closed aperture the field of acceptable sharpness is very widened, so the focus peeking will be fooled.
If you are using an optical viewer you won't be able to set the correct focus as you're viewer is showing a very dark picture that seems to be sharper than it is: this is an effect of small aperture with the fresnell mate.
As long as Samyang isn't producing lenses with chips and full aperture control they are no offer. Good glass alone would have been ok 50 years ago, but not in 21st century's photography.

If you're stopped down, getting the focus exactly right is not as important since DoF is so deep, especially on a wide-angle like this. It's a fine tradeoff to drop the electronics in exchange for a much lower price.

On Who Am I? in the 1:1 aspect ratio: close up photo challenge (1 comment in total)

The photo needs to be square (that's what 1:1 aspect ratio means).

On The Long Commute (daytime) challenge (1 comment in total)

I apologize for how difficult this challenge's requirements were. I wanted to see what people could do with moving vehicles NOT using light trails, but it looks like very few photographers make this kind of photo.

I like the similarity between the flowers and the frame shape.

Great use of a circular frame. It complements the composition perfectly.

Yes, sorry about that.

On T-Rex in the It's comp-licated challenge (1 comment in total)

I docked it a half star for looking like copy-paste. However, it's a copy-paste DINOSAUR so its base score is 1000. Final score: 999½ out of 5.

On Roger Cicala investigates accuracy of lens adapters article (48 comments in total)

This is a good quote from the article:

"What Does It Mean in the Real World? Like a lot of laboratory testing, probably not a lot. Adapters couldn’t all stink or people wouldn’t use them. Like a lot of tests, you can detect a very real difference in the lab that doesn’t make much difference at all in the real world."

On skywards Ho in the Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (15 comments in total)

I really like this photo. It's an unusual take on landscape, and it really does a good job of immersing the viewer in the environment. The water on the window simultaneously shows the weather and the fact that the photo was taken from safe inside the cable car. Combined with the bright sun, it really makes me want to grab my raincoat and jump into the photo.

I like how abstract it is. It took me a little while to figure out what the 'reality' of the shot was, but recognizing the real scene doesn't take away from the magic of it. The cable and cars divide the world between the dark ground an unknown distance below and the bright sky.

If I could change one thing, I might try making it even more abstract by making the sky pure white and darkening the base of the cable tower.

On The Shifting Earth challenge (4 comments in total)

Just to clarify the rules, the camera itself has to move, whether it's thrown through the air, hand-held, on a vehicle, on a barn-door tracker, or strapped to a log drifting down the Amazon.

Total exposure time must be at least 10 seconds, but stacking is okay.

24hrexposure: The submission phase isn't even over and this challenge is already a success IMO. There have been some interesting comments on each of the images, and the creator of "Woman and Cloud" is really getting a lot of bang for their buck by resubmitting :) I hadn't anticipated everyone commenting so early and facilitating resubmitting with improvements, but there's no rule against it so feel free. This is an experimental challenge and it's interesting to see how everyone is reacting to it.

(continued)

If you do want to resubmit, it might be nicer to instead post a gallery photo and link to it in the comments to your original so that the original critiques don't get lost. The hosts of the "Photo Chat" challenges, which were similar to this one, increased the entry limit partway through to allow entrants to add their edited image without withdrawing the original. Unfortunately I don't have time tomorrow to police the entries so I can't do that.

My one request is that everyone check through their critiques and make sure they've offered suggestions for improvement. It's not always easy to see how to improve a photo, even if you know what's weak about it.

In reply to:

Wildbegonia: IMO, sample is misleading.

Could you elaborate? The blur in the dock and the horizon is motion blur, just so repetitive that it doesn't look like a smear. Is that what you were referring to? I can try to find a better sample photo.

On Group Critique: Landscape with a Human Element challenge (8 comments in total)

Some people have wondered if it's okay to comment early (before voting begins). Commenting early is fine, but make sure to check back once voting begins in case someone withdrew and another image was submitted.
