On Up close: The beauty of butterfly wings news story (47 comments in total)

Wings are beautiful, indeed as are butterflies….from a distance. But close up their heads and probosces are not attractive:

Thanks! Shot the hell out of it in just a couple of months! :)

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

So this is how and why camera makers can keep making money out of people. Over 2100 comments about a piece of gear and only a few dozen or so comments on posts to do with actual photography! :P

Most people care more about the gadget than the art. Must be human nature or something.

"Give a man a piano and he has a piano. But give a man a camera and suddenly he's photographer."

(and let the vitriol begin)

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview (548 comments in total)

I was curious about this camera when I heard it announced, but the IBIS and LIVE TIME functions on the Olympus EM5 are so useful to me that I don't regret my purchase. Having captured a variety of subjects with m4/3, I think this format is just great. My FX Nikon is a paperweight.

On RAF photos of the year gives glimpse of high-flyer life news story (22 comments in total)

Stunning photos. I think for the last one, he may have intended the title to be "Slip the SURLY bonds of Earth..." by John Gillespie Magee, used by Peggy Noonan to write a speech for President Reagan to describe the fate of the Challenger Shuttle crew in 1986. "Slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God."

Amazing photo nonetheless. :)

I like both images. Equally striking. Hope the girl (now woman) is doing well.

On How many megapixels do you need? post (220 comments in total)

My 3 year old Nokia N8 still takes excellent photos and seems to be perfectly capable to me. Image quality is perhaps also defined by the creativity of the user... :)

Alpha Whiskey Photography: My food looks more appetising and is certainly healthier than this.

http://alphawhiskey.slickpic.com/photoblog/post/FoodPhotography

My original comment didn't criticise this work (although you seem to be her defence attorney here:)).
And in my blog post, which isn't for marketing either, I state quite clearly that my food photos are a first for me, so your observation about 'freshness' is actually spot on. I just don't find the food in this set particularly inviting or appealing. The artistic merit of the photography is a matter of personal taste.
I would be interested to see if you had photos of your own that you could dare to share with us, since you seem to offer a lot of critique across many articles on this site :)
Cheers.

On DxOMark investigates lenses for the Nikon D600 news story (14 comments in total)

Alpha Whiskey Photography: I'm very happy with the 35mm F/2 AF-D and the 50mm F/1.8G on my D600.

http://alphawhiskey.slickpic.com/photoblog/post/PhotoChallengeInLondon

I found that of the 50mm's, including the older F/1.4 AF-D, the F/1.8 was sharper at its widest aperture and sharper at F/1.8 than the others. Hence my choice of the F/1.8. And yes, I really enjoy using the 35mm F/2 as well. :)

Agree. The watermarks are the only thing I see. Major distraction.
