I did something similar several years ago and may try again...

On Tamas Dezso offers glimpse into post-Communist Romania news story (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

ogl: EU keeps killing Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Latvia, Estonia.

"EU keeps killing Romania, Bulgaria, Greece..."

What a reckless, biased lie. I live in Hungary, so I have first-hand knowledge of the region. It's our own populist, corrupt politicians (and the stupid people who elect them) who kill our countries, not the EU. Without EU funds, there would be no economic or infrastructural development here in Hungary at all. Probably we would also quickly relapse into dictatorship.

On In photos: The beauty of bees news story (49 comments in total)

Yes, these are nice for documentation and science purposes. But I'm a nature photographer who doesn't appreciate shooting dead animals in a studio.

On Haleakala Sunset in the Sunset in the mountains IV challenge (9 comments in total)

Yes the clouds are nice, but I'm not a fan of the composition, and even less of the unrealistic colors and saturation.

Olgierd: These are spectacular! Love the water and amount of detail in the macro shot.

Would you care to share your technique for the last photo (one with starry sky)?

Once again fantastic work.

Cheers!

One more thing: the light on the horizon is light pollution, not - as many believe - the setting sun.

Thank you, Olgierd. The last photo (the ruined building under the Mily Way) was taken with a Tokina 11-16 mm lens. 30 sec exposure, f2.8, ISO 3200, manual focus, and of course careful RAW processing. I lit the foreground by swinging a LED light for a few seconds.

In reply to:

mini23: Come on DPR guys - I'm not a native English speaker but even I know approximately how to use apostrophes - what is sensor's supposed to mean?

...this software modifies the sensor's operation...
means as much as
...this software modifies the sensor is operation...

In this case,"sensor's" means "of the sensor". mini23, you should learn basic English before erroneously criticizing others. (Also, what you propose - "this software modifies the sensor is operation" - is totally gibberish.)

On God's Country in the MobilePhone: Nature challenge (17 comments in total)

Than again, having looked at this image some more, I have to say that these phone photos are good for screen viewing only. The lack of detail makes this one look painting-like.

Beautiful! Indeed, good timing and location matter much-much more than the camera.

Thank you, Simon. Unfortunately no-one seems to read these user-created articles...

Small point: the title is wrong.

"Sigma to start shipping USB dock IN May"
or
"Sigma to ship USB dock FROM May"

On Theme and Variations article (96 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: When shooting "minutes from your home" means dramatic cliffs in Loop Head, Ireland, then yes, I suppose you don't need to travel to far and exotic lands for find interesting subjects. If you live near the Long Island Sound in NY, or some New England town, say New London, CT, I'd say the work of making compelling landscapes "in your own backyard" gets dramatically more difficult.

Where the author lives looks like paradise for a landscape photographer, you could literally shoot the same scene in different seasons, with different light, treatments, and focal lengths, and you'd never run out compelling things to shoot.

Beautiful images, and interesting article. Bravo, and thanks very much.

Again: are you sure that there are no great landscape photo opportunities within, say, 50 miles of a New England town? Places you can get to within an hour by car?

In reply to:

nawknai: This is like a rich guy suggesting that poor people just earn more money.

I grew up in the 'burbs.

I live in the city now, so I can try some street photography, but landscape photography is on hold until my next vacation.

I disagree. I live in a city (Budapest). But if you can afford a car and a few hours' traveling, you can take photos like the following. These are all within 100 km of Budapest. You just have to take some time and effort to explore your region. You can even do that on the Internet (photo communities help). And online weather reports help a lot. My photos below may not be great but they illustrate my point.

To me, this is the best of the challenge. I love the simple composition coupled with the dramatic clouds. Congratulations.

On Curiosity rover takes high-resolution self-portrait on Mars news story (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

cosmo13: So where is the mast with the camera? I see nothing attached to the Rover extending out of the frame to the camera position. In other words there is nothing going from where the camera must be to the Rover.

Exactly. What connected the camera with the rover? How was this taken?

On Dinner Time in the Fast Movement shot for anything challenge (7 comments in total)

I think this is Photoshop work. Neither the tongue nor the insect would be this sharp at 1/125 sec.

Let's face it> most panorma photos are boring. But this... this is a different world altogether. Incredible perspective, colours, composition. Congratulations.

On Spacetime in the Star Trails challenge (24 comments in total)

This took my breath away at first, but after a better look, it's clear that this is Photoshop work. Both the lightning and the unmoving clouds - as noted by another commenter.

On Shooting star above Grytdalen, Telemark, Norway in the Long Exposure challenge (7 comments in total)

Baah, sorry but this is horrible. I don't know what you did to that photo but the terrible noise makes it look as it was taken with a compact camera. After some simple post-processing, my 7D produces better night images.
