  • Commented on photo Seattle I5 in the Your City - Highways challenge

    1Ds2 wasn't so good with noise in dark areas. Also, the jpeg version of this has a lot of detail compromised. I am using a D800 now and considering a D850. Switching from Canon to the D800 was...

    Alex,
    That link doesn't work for me. Can you check it?

  • Commented on photo Seattle I5 in the Your City - Highways challenge

    Thanks for responding. I actually agree with you! As I mentioned in another post, I did this when HDR processing in Photoshop did not exist. So, what I did was zoom in 800% and pixel-by-pixel I...

    Another complaint about the blending technique. Why? Do you realize that automatic HDR did not exist when I took this photo? What is it that you think is disgusting?

  • Submitted a challenge entry St. Basil and Moon
    Next to St. Basil's Cathedral, a former Orthodox church, is a monument to Minin and Pozharsky who in 1612 formed an all-volunteer army to save Moscow from invaders.  I went there to shoot the moon and decided to sacrifice a great exposure on moon shot for the lighting of the cathedral and monument at night.
