  • Replied in Cuban Farmer
    This is a nice portrait Brad. The first (Sepia) has a timeless quality to it that I prefer. The skin tones and suppressed contrast suits the subject. I would if you could suppress the wall behind...
  • Replied in Good reportage!
    A really dramatic series. So much for the shell! turtle soup in seconds!
  • Replied in A crowded life
    Yes! No breakfast on the balcony! I prefer to have my feet on the ground. There is a good compression effect in this and the multiple uniform windows contribute t5o the claustrophobic effect. Nice...
  • Replied in Something blue..
    A stormy weekend. Luckily there was moonlight last weekend. The sea was churning and the wind was phenomenal! This was a moonlight image, tripod and live time exposure (60 secs) (sorry a coloured...
  • Replied in fishing nets

  • E-M1 loss of focus. This has now happened at least twice, the type of scene is similar. The first time was with the 7-14 Panasonic and more recently with 12-40. In both cases it was set at S-AF MF...
  • thanks for this, I too am waiting, and it bought the E-M1 in October!!!!Jerryhttp://agbr.smugmug.com
  • Parks Cameras is new to London and I only know the Sussex branch which had a huge stock, were helpdful but my preference would be LCE I have exchanged and purchased new there, knowledgeable staff...
  • Excellent article, thank you Erez for writing and DPReview publishing.

  • a fast 50-200 would be very useful

  • I have been a SmugMug user since 2004 and although was quite happy with the format that I had developed which was near to their default, I do welcome the change. The impact on those who had made...

  • This one was a stage show this week, I was about 30 metres from the stage ... it was dark.... ISO 640 and the imperious 75mm at...
