Buzz Lightyear: What do you mean by "photo doctoring"?

Personally, anything a photographer wants to do in post-processing is fine with me. The end result is all I care about. If I like it, it gets my vote; if not, no vote or a low score.

Pretty darn nice for a 13-year old, 5 MP camera!

Simple: just don't vote for them.

Thank you, thejohnnerparty. I rarely see a shot of the city taken from this viewpoint, but it seemed a natural.

On Rear View #3 challenge (17 comments in total)

I suggest that Bhimaprasad Maiti's complaints likely cannot be resolved through logical explanations by the Dpreview challenge hosts or administration. Something else going on here, if you get my drift.

Semantic arguments about the meaning of "beginner participants" aside . . .

What apparently appeals to voters is that to be a top contender for this kind of challenge, you need a 24 MP, full frame Nikon camera!

On P9390961_ISO125 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (5 comments in total)

Just purchased an FZ1000 (on its way). I was a somewhat concerned by reviews that said the wide angle view was a bit "soft", but this shot looks awfully sharp to me. Apparently, I needn't have been worried.

I think the theme should remain ambiguous and see what we get - LOL!

On Last Light in the -Nudes- (Full Colours Only) challenge (6 comments in total)

From my brief assessment of a few entries, over 75 people voted in this challenge (95 at least on one photo). My guess is that most were male - due to the fact that most of the entries were female. Not sure what that means, but it says something.

In reply to:

Robert Soderlund: In the last balloon picture, doesn't it take few milliseconds for the sound to reach the flash at a meter or two? How did it fire in time?

Some cameras with electronic shutters can be faster than 1/8000. The Panasonic FZ1000 can do 1/16000.
