On Fusion of Camera & Lens challenge (2 comments in total)

EXIF information will not show the type of lens, especially if it is a different brand as the camera. It would have to be manually entered on the entry form.

On Pick your challenge challenge (8 comments in total)

Great challenge idea, Hans. Few restrictions, open, creative theme, and a few easy to understand rules (for most of us anyway!). Good on you!

celipessoa1971: Very artificial.

You must have meant "Artful".

Nice. Hard to go wrong with that $6000 lens!

citizenlouie: Well, I want to point out something about copyright comment on the Photo 9. Yes, you do need model release, and it's not misconstrued. That's one of the lessons you learn when you take your photography class (and property release, for that matter). The tabloid is in constant legal fight (and they don't mind paying that if they believe they can earn more money selling the paper or blackmail the celebrity in question. It's not the norm of a proper photography practice!). Let's not forget those people paparazzi shot are "public" figures. Their legal right to their image is much more limited to that of regular individuals like us or the cosplay models. Because court judge would definitely ask how much privacy does the person in the photo expects, and that will affect the outcome of the law suit. Lesson... model release is a yes because it's respectful, if not legal.

As usual, there is so much misinformation and assumptions here about this legal situation. If you care to, I suggest you read this informative discussion from an actual attorney. The "Conclusion" section is a nice summary.

photominion: Massive HDR halos in 1..

I have the full size image up on my HD screen, and I don't see any halos. Bright sky behind the airplane's outline . . . Yes; halos . . . no. Eyesight need checking, photominion?

On Redwood Forest in the Your Favorite Shot challenge (2 comments in total)

@thejohnnerparty: thank you for your comment. Yes, it truly is one of my favorite shots. A client purchased a large canvas print of this for her office, saying that viewing it conveyed a feeling of peace and tranquility for her.

Shawn: this is so much better than a 116 placement, IMHO.

On Sunset at Pigeon Point in the Lens flare challenge (6 comments in total)

Yep - HDR image. Given the extreme contrast of light/dark sections, I find HDR the best way to even out the exposure in order to capture details.

In reply to:

They call me Hans: I was under the impression that this series' theme was based mostly around not having much, if any, pp done to the submission, minus that of minor cropping and straightening. I see a lot of image here that have undergone much more than that.

Don't bother. Voters like what they like, processed or not.

On Beatles vs. Rolling Stones challenge (9 comments in total)

Modern DSLRs can do much of the processing in camera which your rules prohibit. Are you going to disqualify those entries? If so, how will you know the camera did the processing?

On Cross in the Inside a church challenge (1 comment in total)

If shooting RAW, one would HAVE to do some processing in order to submit a viewable entry - which could theoretically involve noise reduction. Why is Noise Reduction prohibited?
