I expect to see numerous insect macros entered with their 'facial expressions'.
Three people felt this was the worst possible baby photo - like it didn't even meet the challenge?
Must only the shadow(s) be visible or can what is causing them be in the shot as well, with the shadow behind them? I have a shot which has a very interesting effect of the shadows behind a couple dozen people but only want to enter if it's acceptable.
I would suggest you not request photos of patients.
shigzeo: Was their walk some sort of protest?
They were protesting fake photos entered as real in contests.
averagjoe: It didn't look like it; I saw them coming from quite a distance. They passed by without looking up, and continued on until out of sight.
Ben O Connor: AMAZING CAPTURE! Another wonder of photography. Its not just art, not always a fantasy... The real itself! It's what happens around you always.
And now that moment is immortal!
Not an amazing capture - a phony photoshopped photo.
Two people had the GALL to give this photo 1/2 star? This is why I think voters should be identified by their votes in these challenges. Congratulations on a really super photo and win.
maksa: The new K-3 II is the best camera for travellers. Thank you Ricoh for absence of such studio gimmicks as Wi-Fi and flash remote control, we don’t need them. Thank you a lot for integrated GPS.
Hope to see Silver and Prestige editions soon.
I would agree with you on that though I'm not a Pentax fan. While I know I don't speak for anyone else, I would find GPS much more useful in the long run than wi-fi. I'm not in a huge hurry to post my photos to the web, but I would like to know for certain exactly where a photo was taken once upon a time when the area has changed, or when I shot the photo on the other side of the world and I'd like to see the place in Google Earth.
zavart: It looks that DP Review Staff is waiting with the review of Pentax K-3II until the other camera makers can do catch up with their products. Then it will be more easy and justifiable to give lower mark to Pentax. Well , what the heck wait another 3 years and You can always say that in comparison to others it was not even worthy of posting on Your website !!! :)
Perhaps Pentax will find a way to elevate their C-AF tracking to somewhere near the others at last.
Beautiful photo of great-looking kids.
Sir Corey of Deane: Marvelous capture, Midwest - you can feel proud of that one! It's pics like this I go for and shows up some of the dross that's been posted here for what it is.
Just a thought: in retaliation for the indignity he suffered, maybe the guy will do a Cronus job on the steer and name him Senzaballi. :-)
Thanks for all the nice words. I was hoping to place well because the shot really nailed the theme about catching someone with a funny expression. I've had a few other challenge entries that I thought were very good and didn't place very well so I'm still a little surprised that this time I finally got a first place. Don't know if the cowboy wanted revenge on the bull but he might not be happy with me, that I caught that look on his face. :)
Cliff Whittaker: I love rodeo and that shot captures the essence.
Thanks Cliff, appreciate the comment.
Segaman: I love those faces, like also the clown
Thanks - I got a kick out of the guy's expression. I hope I never looked like that when I got bucked off. :)
This is an awesome shot and deserves to win. The fact that two people gave it the lowest possible rating only speaks to the poor system of how these challenge entries are rated and the childishness of some of the entrants.
Two half-star votes for this shot? It meets the challenge objective and is a decent photo - no way does it deserve any lowest-possible scores.
slippedcurve623: Wow I can't see how iPhone users are gonna get this, an iPhone ain't suppose to be so clunky/fragile looking, I'd rather rather spend an extra 200-250$ for a second hand 5d ii or an new rx 100 iv :-)
I'd pay $200-250 for a secondhand 5d2 gladly, considering that the average sale price on Ebay for this 7 year old model is about $1000.
maccam: You have to be kidding me. How long will that connector last? This is an ergomatic nightmare. Hmm, I see it will connect to my ipad; how in the ... will I hold that?
The kind of people who would buy this likely would end up doing just that. 'Oops! Oh no, look at my phone... and hey..."
It'd be funny if it had humdrum dynamic range.
CameraLabTester: This camera is the epitome of Canon's creepy marketing system:
Spread the features over many camera models down through the years.
Make the suckers (er... customers) feel they have an improved (but actually gelded) model, release after release after release....
"Real world "camera design" feedback provider to camera "lab designers" who never get out to see the real world."...Do you get out in the world and take any photos? You've been here five years and not a single example of your photography posted?
