  • Replied in Very good...
    ...this is a picture which talks to me. Very well done!
  • Sorry to say it, but to me it is boring. It doesn't tell a story and it doesn't show an interesting landscape. But, of course, this is just my personal point of view and you asked for c&c.
  • Really? It would be the same excellent picture.
  • Replied in Excellent!
    Everything about this pictures is well done. I love it.
  • You are right. I think almost everyone is tweaking their photos. Once you touch a slider to set exposure, change contrast, turn into B&W, crop something out, ...., you are tweaking the photo. But ...
  • The first steps are the most important ones. Good to hear from you! Frank
  • Thank you Nick, you are right, especially with the distracting chairs in pic #2. I don't use post-processing software other than developing RAWs in SPP and eventually some slight cropping in ...
  • Both SD1 with 18-35 Art lens. An airlock - Exit of the train station of the airport A row of desks, each with a nice vase of flowers.
  • ....finally someone posts pictures of a DP Merrill for pixel peeping. :-D Good to hear that you like your DP camera for its crisp sharp pictures. But we have gone through it all a long time ago. So ...
  • I didn't intend to be harsh. Sigma has a vision. They clearly state it. It is about photography. In the sense of an art. Their approach is contemplative and very focused on the highest image ...
  • ....do you still participate in this forum? Don't get me wrong, your opinions are as valid as any other. But I don't get why you spend time in this forum if this is really your judgement. Sigma ...
  • Great pictures! I really like the landscapes. A lot of drama. The others are pretty good as well.
  • Absolutely right! In the end, the only "exact" language may be mathematics. Everything else depends on the context and on well-accepted and unambiquous definitions. And you never know if the one ...
  • Count Carl Rytterfal, Laurence Mateson and Yamaki-san in as well. And the various measurements which show that ISO 200 delivers the best DR. Which is a typical sign of "the best fit" of exposure ...
  • You don't have to tell me that as I know this for quite a while. And we had this discussion more than once. Of course, these findings only make sense if you use the exposure setting by the camera. ...
  • This is something you can do. But in this case you are doing/changing semantics. Noise has a meaning depending on the context, also in the field of digital imaging. If you use it for all ...
  • All measurements I have seen so far which analyze Dynamic Range depending on ISO clearly show that DR peaks at ISO 200. What does that fact tell you?
  • Hmmm, I find twice in your post that you say ISO 200 has less noise than ISO 100. (I highlighted the text.) But maybe I don't get properly what you want to say.
  • A somewhat strange finding....... You define a new DR, absolute max intensity/max intensity where blotching occurs. Even if you take the blotching  as noise, you would have to use absolute max ...
  • It is really interesting how different the perception of facts and fiction can be. I always thought you have a more scientific point of view on these things. There is no hidden mystery, just some ...
