  • I also stopped taking the survey early.  I got to the question about what kind of photographer I am.  When I saw that one of the choices was "Thrill Seeking Photography", I realized that I didn't ...
  • Although I got there by slightly different logic, I also came up with a full-frame equivalent of just over 40 megapixels.  So this sounds right to me, Dave. Of course, if the logic by which this ...
  • Absolutely!  AFAIK that's why the abbreviation WYSIWYG never became popular. And, BTW. I followed your advice and didn't quote your entire post.
  • With additional post processing, you can achieve some improvement, even to your existing shots. I modified your second image with a technique called Local Contrast Enhancement.  This is a subset of ...
  • I have discovered that if I don't "perfume" my pixels following the raw development, the result sometimes smells bad.  As in, "your photo stinks!" LOL
  • In the Nikon lineup, the top-of-the-line D4 does NOT have a PASM control dial. Nor did the various iterations of the D3 and D2 before it. The D800-810 series does NOT have a PASM control dial. The ...
  • Perhaps one might pose the infant holding a camera, as if he (she) were taking a photograph.  That would be the ultimate representation of "a newborn photographer".  LOL
  • Replied in Raw or JPEG?
    I thought I read somewhere that the camera histogram and blinkies are referenced from an in-camera jpeg rendering of the image (regardless of whether you are saving Raw+jpeg or Raw only). If true, ...
  • Replied in Me on location
    Oh .... you meant FLARES (not "flairs"). My mistake, entirely.  From reading your many posts over the years, I should have been much more suspicious of your command of the English language.
  • Replied in Me on location
    What are the "flairs", we're supposed to check out?  I don't understand what your are referring to.
  • That (and similar uses of a dedicated AF/ON) is just one example of a number of reasons why the D7100 should not be the "flagship" DX and the D610 is not a "pro" full frame instrument.  Buttons, ...
  • If the question is whether haze effect can be reduced, the answer is, yes.  If the question is whether your approach is the way to do it, I don't know. See this thread in this forum from 8 months ago.
  • Replied in cars too many
    I get your point.  Cropping out the trees doesn't particularly help convey the impression of how small the squirrel is.  Perhaps a good solution would be to crop in really tight and insert a ruler ...
  • I read Thom's blog too and wasn't as encouraged as I thought I'd be.  I want an updated Dx that has Pro build and Pro operating ergonomics.  He kept talking about small and light and features like ...
  • That's much better! However, this is a first for me -- a shaved head but full sideburns are maintained. :-D I'm not sure that Patsym realized that my first posting was tongue-in-cheek.
  • Can't somebody do something about the severe underexposure of his glasses.  You can't even see his eyes which, as everyone knows, are one of the most important features of a good portrait.  ...
  • Replied in huh ?
    Interesting observation -- that closely parallels my observation.  I am not a professional portrait photographer.  But I was wondering if any of you PROs though that this was taken with a lens ...
  • Gary ..... Is this one of those challenges where you must identify all the things in a photo that have been removed, added or modified?  I've only been able to identify the elimination of the tag ...
  • I'd like to apologize to you, Wolfgang (the OP) for partially hijacking your thread and sending it off into different and more technical direction.  In fact, your question had simply to do with ...
  • Thanks, Glen ..... Even though I was well aware that JPEGs are only 8-bit, I hadn't thought of the bit depth issue as being the dominating determinant of file size differences. I somehow thought ...
