On Swan Lake in the The Swan lake challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

Vittorio Fracassi: whilst admiring your photo my contorted imagination started wondering if it could be done by merging three captures of the same swan dritfting from left to right. My knowledge of PP would allow me to do it.
Too cheeky to ask if you did this? A positive answer wouldn't reduce by a fraction both the aesthetic value of the image nor the worthiness of the author.
Regards, Vittorio

Hello Vittorio!
Sorry for answering so late...;-)
These are actually three different swans, two older ones (parents?) and a young one in front of them. This scene is 100% natural, only major postprocessing was to remove some dirt in the water and removing noise without killing too much of the details - small G11 sensor...
With best regards,
Christian

On Variation Facts and Fallacies article (231 comments in total)
In reply to:

DrugaRunda: the next stage is for someone like DPR to take 10 lens copies of each 70-200 f2.8 lenses

Canon L IS
Nikon VR
Sigma OS (Nikon + Canon version)
Tamron (Nikon + Canon version)

and test on 10 bodies Nikon 3Dx and 10 Canon 1Ds MKIII

So we have 30 lenses x10 bodies for Canon and Nikon = 600 tests

Only after that we would have it all settled, not.

The article should be named "There can be only one!".

Not to forget Sony, Olympus, Pentax and all variations between FF and APS-C bodies... ;-)

On High noon at Aitutaki lagoon in the Landscapes at High Noon challenge (7 comments in total)

Hi,
sorry for answering so late...!
This image was taken at the main island, some 100 meters from the airport, in front of a small restaurant. But similar sights can be found almost everywhere at Aitutaki.
Cheers,
Christian

On Pelican Dive in the Image stacking challenge (6 comments in total)

Congrats to the 1st place, but.....

Does anyone at dpreview challenges ever look at the full resolution images on voting??

This image was voted 1st for two times, one time second and one time third place.
The shot burst is great, but the background ???
Look at the waves in full resolution. The sea consists of lots of more or less grey and blue patches, especially in the left lower corner.
Sorry, leifbaker - technically it's very bad that way. You should add one more image of the background alone and cut out the pelican images exactly with 2-3 px weak edges. Or try to get the same colors into the waves.
When you manage to change that, this image could become a "real" winner. ;-)
