Could you please explain precisely what, in these pictures, indicates that this camera is good ?

IMO, similar pictures could have been captured with a smartphone.

You must make friends and influence people with an entrance like that.

Perhaps you missed the link to my blog post. If not, I suggest you have a look at the pictures at 100%. If your smartphone shows that much detail it is a lot better than mine

Your blog has images linked from flickr.  Your flickr account, unfortunately, is not a Pro account, and thus no 100% images are available (max non-pro = 1600px wide, or roughly 1/10th the original 100% resolution).

As far as the critique of the pictures, I tend to agree with nicoboston to a degree.  I'm of the mind that if you post photos, you should welcome the critical eyes of all equally.  Some will have a positive review, some a negative, and some may see a lukewarm result.  There's no need for anyone to sling the "troll" comment simply because someone does not share an opinion.

Just sayin'.

No worries!

It is a pro account but I limit the resolution of pictures people can access. Happy to post the 100% versions of the three here if you would like but since they were "street" themed they are hardly pixel peeping porn! Here's the one of the bag piper (note the grain is added in post)...

As to nico's comment - I didn't call him a troll. Others did that. I noticed he had slated a previous picture of mine, but that's fine, anyone's allowed to hate a photo. But I do wish he had something something more positive or critical than "I could do better with my iphone etc"  I just thought that as C&C goes it was a bit inane... So it deserved an inane response (as set out above)
