Sabatia: I started digital imaging more than twenty years ago via scanning slides and film with a high-end dedicated scanner. I loved Adobe because I got so much joy out of creating collages and printing my images on my large-format printers. Now I feel that they've lost their souls, with money being their only reason for existence. I feel sad for Adobe employees.
I think you'll find most companies exist to make money - It's called business.
Most club judges would point out that the bright area in the sky draws the eye away from the rest of the image.
Tan68: The image was exported to PS to adjust left slider on levels to 14, if I understand correctly. It is not possible to adjust blackpoint on levels in LR ?
Yes. You can adjust both Black and White points in LR, but the text says the main editing was done in ACR, so maybe that's different?
cmvsm: Still don't get a camera's ergonomic design where one cannot turn the camera on and off with one hand. Even when Canon puts the switch on the correct side, one needs to move their thumb off of the pad to turn it on, which can easily lead to dropped cameras. This is the primary reason why I never bought into Canon DSLR's.
Why do you need to turn the camera on and off?My Canons have a sleep mode which is entered after a user definable time.Once it goes to sleep all you need to do is touch the release button and it wakes up instantly, ready to shoot.In sleep mode there is no battery drain and hence no need to keep switching on and off.I hardly ever turn my power switch off and on.
falconeyes: The 7DmkII certainly is a nice camera.
But it also shows how slow the progress in the photographic industry has become. Most advance is in the camera control logic (AF, metering).
Actually, we're now back in the days of analog film, with a nice pace of evolution and cameras not deprecating too fast. Not a bad thing in my book where photography matters more than gear.
I'd agree with your comments
Seems like something you could do a lot more easily with digital layers and save loads of printing paper.

Music is only annoying if you don't like it.IF you don't like it - Turn it down.
Lee Jay: Can someone explain number 6 to me? I'm having a hard time understanding that one.
Getting hit by a breaking is a little like getting hit by a slow-moving car. It hurts just to look at these because I know what came next.
Yes, a little too much Photoshopping in number 6.
I suspect that many are Photoshop composites, although very well done.I saw some photos like this taken in the UK by someone who is obviously copying Clark Little's techniques. These were clearly Photoshop composites, since some of the wave angles were impossible in relation to the background
AbrasiveReducer: Great video but it's amazing how this has grown from something that was easier to use than Photoshop, to what it is now.
It's a completely different program, with a different application to PS.
jazzphotog1: Video looks very useful. Physical problem here...must be able to watch the video in 10-15' intervals. Can it be downloaded & saved to my computer (Mac)?
There are lots of YouTube downloader programs available.
I don't use Mac, but here a couple of many:http://download.cnet.com/YTD-Video-Downloader/3000-2071_4-75894811.htmlhttp://www.macxdvd.com/free-youtube-video-downloader-mac/

Artistico: It trolls the web? Really? I thought there was enough trolling just in the DPReview forums for starters. Why would we want anyone else to start trolling for us as well? =P
The word is "trawling" not trolling, read the second sentence of the description.
A Wake Up call to all those that think the "Cloud" is invulnerable to disruption.How long before this happens to all those "cloud" archives of images that people have uploaded, think are safe, and have no off-line backup for?The "cloud" unlike it's namesake, is not something that floats around in space, it's just an array of physical hard drives on some server somewhere, and as such, however well protected, is vulnerable to disruption from electrical failure, fire, flood, earthquakes and any number of other external influences.Those that rely on it entirely for their storage are foolish.
Several of them have a very distracting background.
I've been told that a lot of the lower end carbon fiber tripods are actually thin aluminium tubes clad in carbon fiber.The only company that uses pure carbon for their legs is Gitzo, which is reflected in their prices.Is that true in this case?
A bit like a car manufacturer saying you can only use "GoodStone" tires when your originals wear out...
Conclusion - Cons:
"◾HDR mode unavailable if Raw is active (rather than disengaging Raw)"
Is there ANY camera that allows HDR raw shooting? (than than by multiple bracketed exposures).HDR is an output image (jpg) function.This can hardly be a "Con" since all cameras behave the same way.
Walsh_uk: Wish it had a fuji sensor then it would be perfect..
For me the lack of a phone is a deal breaker.
