breivogel: In addition to being silly, the photo is rotten - not level, too much sky, overexposed. Of course, one can't spend too much time on active train tracks.

I disagree with your assessment of this photograph. It's quite good. I agree with MyReality on this one. 1x.com has some excellent work. I follow several of the featured photographers on 500px.com

No kidding.

Roland Karlsson: Extremely nice colors and a beautiful girl. But ... coming up close I really do not like the overdone make up.

Cosmetic photos usually come with a lot of cosmetics. She is wearing what is called 'chaos mascara'... a style I personally don't like. But apparently it's trendy with 20-somethings.

PHOTOJOE55: A hood and a hat? And yet it's the jacket that ruins this image!

RuthC: This is a great capture of a beautiful girl, but it really deserves a better title than _F0A5334-Edit_small!

Well... I shoot a LOT of photos... so many times my uploads don't get renamed. :D

SRT201: Great shot, just the right DOF and wonderful diffuse Winter lighting. Great overall palette. You also got a real smile out of your model.

In all honesty though, you owe some percentage of your votes to the fact that she is a total stunner! Oh my! :-)

Thanks.... and yes... a lovely model always helps. :-)

This one was really quite good. I expected it to be in the top three for sure.

Rob: I have to say, it seems I've gotten used to seeing high-quality 4K videos at this point (or simply sharp HD resolution videos), and seeing the 5DMKIII's relatively blurry HD resolution is kind of disappointing. Also, it's such a heavy camera and today we have many 4K capable alternatives that are much lighter (much easier to use with a drone) and shoot far better video.

We use 5D3's as crash cams and sometimes for drone shots where we think there is a high risk that there might be a crash involved. Looking at the Miron's footage there could be a few factors a) definitely YouTube compression is at play... you can definitely see it in the mid-low and low tones where YouTube frequently falls apart b) not sure which lens they used, but it may be a factor c) probably should have done some slight sharpening on the final footage.

4K is overkill in most instances... I shoot 4K/6K/8K on a regular basis professionally for clients, including the NBA... and nearly always, with few exceptions, the final output is 1080p. We shoot higher res for various reasons: a) greater resolution for chromakey shoots, b) improved ability to remove shake, c) easier to remove wire rigging, d) the ability to punch in for edit continuity and changeup purposes, e) slightly sharper detail when downscaling from higher res footage to 1080p. There is almost zero 4K content delivery to customers worth talking about. And YouTube's compression is horrible.

Scales USA: Li-on batteries are dangerous, and difficult at best. Larger ones have more energy and are potentially nasty. I'm not happy with IOS 10 and my IPhone 6 plus, so was considering selling it. The hardware is fine, but I just do not like the new OS and having to learn to shut down or bypass some of the features that are a nuisance. Its too bad that Samsung has booted it, I am leert of the Google phone, I'll wait and see.

The changes in iTunes, iMessages, Maps, and Mail are superb.

I think iOS 10 is by far the best OS released to date.

aiwentimotai: As the saying goes, " Love is blind. " For Apple lovers, the purplish tinge on your photos makes them more artistic. Shorter battery life is good as you have to charge your phone more often and thus, you get to excercise your hands and fingers more. The iPhone is made bendable so that it can conform to the contour of our butts, so it would be more comfortable sitting down with the phone in your back pockets. Having to pull out a recording through connecting your iPhone to a computer and then iTunes is more "straightforward" than Android phones that let's you plug a thumb drive into it and dragging and dropping it into the drive. Having Bluetooth and NFC that doesn't allow you to transfer files to other phones is good because it makes your iPhone more secure. Having a closed eco system and proprietary hardware gets you excluded from other commonly available and lower priced hardware, er i mean, it makes you more exclusive. Having no phone jack is good as it halfs the life of your lightning port since you use it both for charging and listening to music, and so it gives you the excuse to buy a new phone sooner. It also encourages you to spend less time listening to music as the compressed music through the wireless earphones doesn't sound too great after a while (and they also help you set a 5 hrs time limit listening through the earpods). All these also helps Apple in their share prices. You also save your ears from damage because of shorter periods on the headphones. No matter what flaws the iPhone has, Apple lovers will happily embrace them because to them, all these are meant for our good. So you see, love is blind.

At the end of the day I don't use Android for one reason only.... data mining by Google. No thanks. My data isn't for sale.

Troj... all iPhones are professionally color-calibrated at the factory. Fact.

I do love how many photographers on here don't even have a gallery. I'd say most do not from what I've seen.

BigBen08: No thanks, my Canon is perfect.

Show me where the extra $1,000 for a Sony lens will make any difference on a paying job.
