Yeah, because cranking up the contrast and color saturation is sooooo unique.

No, this is just the typical cr@p posted on DPR every day.

I know I shouldn't feed the trolls but.. this post is so unnecessary and out of line. If you don't like it here, take a hike.

Ok, less contrast and sharpening on this ver.

Better? Thanks for feedback!

Re: Ok, less contrast and sharpening on this ver.

This is a really nice result. Take the troll's opinions with the massive grain of salt they deserve. There will always be morons out there with no job, plenty of time, and nothing better to do than rip on other people's contributions. Most of those trolls don't post any images because the photos they do take are crap and would be subject to a firestorm of criticism. It's so much easier to hide behind the annonymity of the web.

Anyways, my point is, well done. Enjoy your camera.

Re: good image, just a tad oversharpened

I hope you realise that you have just made me £320 poorer!

I have to get an 85mm 1.8g after looking at the photo.

I literally did spontaneously exclaim, "Wow!" Enough said.

Just for kicks...

I clicked on Kevin's profile to see how proper photography should look. His gallery is empty. I'm going to go ahead and assume he's just some blowhard wannabe based on his comments. Nothing in his gallery to outweigh my assessment.

you are posting lots of photos on this forum, we don't mind, but stay aware that you are exposed to criticism which helps to improve skills. If you take every critique as an offense adding "I don't want my photos to look like anyone else's" you should then expect people seeing you as a condescending man.

Facts are that all the photos you posted here since you got the D600 are overcooked, especially the wedding shots which are awfully over sharpened and skins look like almond paste due to the heavy noise reduction filters used. Some people may not notice the difference (you for example) but you would not be able to sell this to any pro studio or distributor. Sorry, but put some glasses on and try again !

Totally agree with your conclusion.

I certainly agree!

BTW Neil: watch your dog all day if you like, but please keep posting such excellence for us to admire.

As a note: so far the posts of D600 shots I have made were all default to camera as received, jpeg, and yet I am VERY impressed. I played with some with a simple editing program called Microsoft Digital Image Pro 10 (now very out of date) and was surprised at how much I could "save" from overexposed (yes, I shot that way and also underexposed just to see what "developed") and from shadow detail.

Can't wait to see what L4 can do with the raw when they develop the codec to read D600.

Great shot, impressing sharpness and detail.
question: Is this straight out of the camera with pushed picture controls?

Kindest regards,

Re: Just for kicks...

forget it Kevin, this forum is for amateurs losing their time to stick together in a virtual family. This is why we get all those WOW and OUTSTANDING answers everytime someone posts a pet picture or a dying tiger in the zoo next door. For now on I will spend maybe 1% of my time I did on this forum, just to check the valuable posts.

I'm not blind and I have posted my own images for folks to check out. But it's ok..to each his own opinion.

Qualifications?

Ok..so what are your qualifications for being a critic? I see one image in your gallery. What else do you have that speaks to your magnificence?

Could you get a similar result with a 50mm 1.4?

I don´t have a full frame and I am trying to understand how far it can go in terms of DOF.

With a 50mm lens on the same camera would the result be too different?
