Well I would like to have specific "nuclear waste" - used fuel - in my backyard, of course well shielded. Free warm water for years! Free heating in winter...

Buzz Lightyear: Did no one notice the the #1 and #7 entries are EXACTLY the same engine, taken on the same date, at almost the same times and positions with some minor editing changes (easily done with photoshop). In addition, even though the two photographers have different names, they both live in the Slovak Republic! This has got to be a cheater with two logins and two cameras!

There are 6 picutres with the same date, taken at the same event - the annual meeting of steam locomotives at Rendez, Bratislava.

Buzz Lightyear:
Well, the date of the challange was coincidentaly right after the "Annual meeting of Steam locomotives at Rendez, Bratislava - východ". I also posted a picture, but I was careful not to post one of these night shots, as I expected them to show up. I was surprised by how many pictures from the same event have shown up. Btw. in my gallery I uploaded a shot which will be familiar to one of the entries by another user... Rendez is a nice opportunity to take pictures of locomotives and so far my only 1st place winning picture was from Rendez a couple of years ago.

barb_s:
I remember that during "night shooting" there were lots of people with tripods taking shots there, so it is no surprise that most of them got similar pictures. I was there too and have similar caputres as well...

On Preview:canon-eos-70d (1333 comments in total)

I wonder how Canon adressed the aliasing and moireé issues that result in low sharpness and disturbing artifacts in video mode. The new AF looks promising, but if the video output remains on the level of previous models it will be a disappointment.

Áno, aj mňa to sklamalo, ale čo sa dá robiť. Fotku 498.104 z rovnakého miesta mám tiež (je v mojej galérii), ale do súťaže som úmyselne dal úplne inú fotku než tieto "nočné klasiky". Som zvedavý ako sa umiestni.

On After Tea in the My best picture this week challenge (1 comment in total)

Had to withdraw, no HDR apparently. Although it is basic post-processing in my opinion, if you try to keep a natural look and have a scene with very high contrast, much higher than the dynamic range of the sensor.

In reply to:

Michael D Beckwith: With regards to basic processing, is HDR photography allowed?

I would post a HDR too, if I could. I shot the picutres for it on the day the challange was announced and it turned out pretty nice.

Well if it cannot be bought in a shop? Some things are not material, yet very, very valuable and many people dream of getting them...

WANT! :-)

Now will there be a 35 - 70 f1.8 to match this? And eventually a 70 - 200 f2 for APS-C. :-P

On Just Posted: Canon EOS 6D In-depth Review article (530 comments in total)
In reply to:

SemperAugustus: Few comments about the review:
1.- The multi-exposure feature works on RAW as well.
2.- The WiFi connected to the PC via Remote Control (EOS Utility) gives complete control of every aspect of the camera. Live view, download and even time lapse capture. it just makes sense for Canon to eventually upgrade their iOS and Android EOS app to match the functionality of the Remote Control Utility.
3.- The fact that the 6D compares to the 5DMIII speaks volume about the capabilities of this camera. So yes, it does not have 41 focus points, so what?
4.- It does not have a swivel screen, it has a separate screen altogether. It gives you control with any iOS or Android device, that is a way bigger, better and more flexible option than a swivel screen. this is like when Apple ditched the floppy disk.... some people complained about it.
5.- They completely left out a review of the included software which is top-notch. Including the above mentioned remote control utility.

to semperaugustus:
I resisted the Digital until I bought the EOS 30D, until then I shoot on film only, becouse I did see many problems in the early digital cameras, mostly the price of those that gave acceptable results, I never considered compacts.
I simply to not feel the need to control my camera with my smartphone. People have various needs, somtehing might be imporatnt for me, something for you. The biggest drawback I currenlty see is the video quality of (not only Canon) DSLRs - horrible moireé and aliasing. But for stills they are all pretty good. Handling is a question of your preferences.

4. Yes, a feature draining the battery both in your camera and your phone. How clever! Handling issues during composing on a tripod using one hand while holding the phone in the other aside...
