  • Ok, so this was last weekend... After I took this image I walked 20 feet further in, to eliminate those dark bushes in the foreground, but in that short time the fog changed and the sun became too ...
  • Beautiful image. It seems a little cramped in the square format, though. David
  • Replied in Into the Sunset
    In the interests of full disclosure, this is a composite. When I down-rezzed to 1800 px wide, the airplane was too small to be effective, so I pasted the original picture's plane image into the ...
  • Lin wrote: "??? LOL - couldn't be the photographer forgot to check the settings could it?" Of course you are right. However you may recall that Ted asked (tongue in cheek, perhaps) for other ...
  • IMO, they show the skill of the photographer. I'm not good at photographing things that move. A camera that is better in those situations improves my chances of getting a good shot. David
  • Worst, that is, for a shot where I quite reasonably expected that it would look good. (I've taken lots of shots were I expected they would look awful, and I was rarely disappointed.) Anyway this ...
  • I was out for a walk once, and discovered a dead deer. Bambi had died! And vultures were ripping her guts out! I took lots of pix - this is one of the few that might be rated 'G': You're coming too ...
  • Lovely pano. Details like this are why I do most of my shooting with the DP cameras now. What is that building under construction on the far right? A copy of the Leaning Tower of Pisa? David
  • Nice pano, Larry. Cleaner than most of the Q images I've seen. However, it appears to need about 3 degrees rotation CW. David
  • The Q image looks a lot better there, but it is still quite a bit noisier than the M, and the resolution is, at best, marginally better. Doesn't change my mind about getting the DP1M rather than the Q.
  • Thanks for making these files available, Guido. Many of the Q images I've seen on-line looked pretty noisy, but there was no direct comparison with the M, and the photographer may have been ...
  • Really nice macros. What is that close-up lens? David
  • On a lazy Sunday David
  • You'll have to excuse another photo of this field and shed - it's only a short walk from my house. When the developer comes in to build luxury homes, some old residents don't leave... The above is ...
  • Hi Ted- I got that lens with my SD14, back in 2009. It was my only lens for a while, and most of the SD14 images on my pbase site used it. I thought it was an excellent lens for the SD14, a little ...
  • Hi Scot- This was all a while ago, but here's what I remember: I adjusted the exposure only in SPP (other parameters at their defaults) and exported as a same-size jpeg, quality 12. In PSE, I ...
  • I have to disagree with the previous post. I've made some 36" x 54" prints from DP3M images and they look great. Even standing a foot away. I posted one here, that's hanging on the wall in my ...
  • Replied in IMO, Merrill
    From what I've seen, the Quattro is noisier. Maybe Sigma will fix that in the firmware someday. I have pretty shaky hands, but shoot the DP3M mostly handheld. Just try to keep the shutter speed ...
  • Replied in Moonrise Jan 3
    I under-exposed this a little - the sunlight was still illuminating that big shed. A properly exposed version is at http://www.pbase.com/davidwright2000/image/158710909/original Once again, ...
