On Two male Eastern Carpenter Bees after a female in the Beautiful Bee. challenge (4 comments in total)

It seems a lot of the voters have no idea what makes a good photo. Pictures of honeybees sitting on a flower are a dime a dozen. Your shot is unique and tells a story from a perspective rarely seen.

I believe I gave it a well-deserved 4.5.

If there is an insect there, it must be VERY tiny. :)

Terrible comparison review!

I did learn that Pentax is "owned by RyeKoff", though.

Class A: Cool, this lens looks like my next buy for the forthcoming Pentax FF.

" The lens will be available in Sigma and Canon mounts next month, in Nikon mounts in April, and in Sony mounts later in the year". Will you be using some kind of adapter?

Jim Salvas: One guy just uploaded 24 photos with this tag. That's pretty needy, fella.

@ Joerg V.

Unfortunately, when you combine 24 average-quality shots, you get one large average-quality shot.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1916 comments in total)
In reply to:

James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.

It would appear that either NWT is short for NitWiT, or he has some weird agenda.

A fantastic shot and my choice to win.

EssexAsh: is there no submission limit or can we just spam the thread with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle?

Obviously. if you look at the submissions, "spamming with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle" is perfectly acceptable.

ysengrain: And what about somme incredible Zeiss lens ?

Hugo - are you serious? Have you heard of manufacturers' warranties? Amazon has a 30 day return/exchange program - as good as anywhere. And Amazon doesn't pay corporate taxes?

Sure.....

On BIG BEND TEXAS in the Big Bend challenge (3 comments in total)

You're obviously familiar with the Park.

This is a close-up of the huge metal T-bone just inside the main gate, featuring the recent repairs.

I am so glad they didn't go ahead with their demolition plans for this iconic sculpture.

A couple of magnum rivets, and it's as good as new - there for future generations of Texans to enjoy!
