On Pier at winter in the Frozen Lake challenge (6 comments in total)

Thanks for the comment... I kind of agree what comes to saturation&vignetting. I blame it (at least partially) on the fact that the processing was done on my laptop, the screen of which is not good at all for photo processing. Looking at the image using my calibrated desktop/screen, a little less heavy-handed processing would have indeed be more appropriate.
But since the photo ended up winning the challenge, it is obvious that eye-candy does have its benefits ;)

I've also discovered that most of my good photos are taken within 10 km radius of my home. It seems that I visit the same places quite often and by doing that I'm able to catch scenes with various lighting conditions. I have also traveled quite a bit, but the images from these trips serve mostly as reminders that I've "been there, seen that"... not able to spend enough time on a location to really manage to capture captivating images. As an example, I have a small gallery at
500px.com/ruusnak
quite a few of the pics are from the Helsinki area, taken on the coast, 7 km from my home

TripTrip: Attention to the percentages for the 83% 6D Silver Award, 82% for D800 Gold Award?? Rest of my idea on the test!

Attenzione alle percentuali 83% per la 6D Silver Award, 82% per la D800 Gold Award???? Resto della mia idea sui test!

"There is no direct link between the overall score and the awards"...
that tells quite a bit! You could for example not give any award to a camera that scores 99%. I know humans make rational decisions based on emotions, this is just one example of the fact.
OTOH, it's us humans that evaluate things anyway, and we just can't escape the fact that there's emotion that we can't always control (or know the effect of it). What am I trying to say then... thanks for the review, you're entitled to your opinion ;)

So what is the %-threshold in 5DIII's category to achieve "gold", and what is it in 6D's category? And how do you categorize anyway... most functionality/weight? sports camera? camera that makes one want to take pics?
Not that it matters, I am a happy owner of 6D. 5DIII was just too heavy, and 6D has never let me down, it just does the job just as well.

When comparing fz150 RAW with fz200, it seems there are lens issues with fz200. For example the watch at the bottom right corner is clearly better with fz150. At the center they are very close though.

Too much wasted space now, repeated graphic symbols that really add no value... Old format was much better
