On photo NZ wedding in the The wedding. challenge (9 comments in total)

Perfect capture - no doubt the slightly overcast conditions softened the light somewhat. And yes, I love that the trio are all looking down the lens - the eyes have it!!

Badger1952: I would like to try Printique but they do not seem to be Apple Photos compatible - has anyone tried to load images from AP to Printique?

@Bobthearch - did I also say that I am lazy - I process a lot when I am travelling with iPad Pro in LR from Nikon NEF files so I save to Photos. If I use a web based photo book I have to export everything I want to compile into an album..

3dit0r: Firstly, Belvedere is delightful - what a handsome boy.

Secondly, I am ALL for dogs instead of cats as photographic test subjects.

And they don’t eat native wildlife!

Looking at your photos of Belvedere reminds me of the saying about chocolate - chocolate is the answer, who cares what the question is. Did you say you commentary was about cameras/lenses?

Good heavens - has it really been 12 years - most of my travel photos materialise from D800 and D7200, this little baby is always in my backpack for those times I want to be inconspicuous- most recently Kahn el-Kahlili market in Cairo - with a little touching up in Lightroom the RAW images come up a treat. It is usually set to P mode at ISO400 which works in most situations.

AAARGH - so nit picky - I, for one, enjoyed it for what it is - a window into the past - well done!!

Georgescanvas: Sounds like a hospitable town ! Here in Australia, also known as the nanny state capital of the world, authorities are blocking any kind of photographic endeavours near airport perimeters.

Not at Perth Airport!

Or if you live in Perth, Western Australia you can have a custom built viewing "platform"

Richard Poinvil: I've been to Poland for a total of about 50 weeks on various trips. When I went to Auschwitz, the last picture I took there was just outside the gate before going in. I just did not feel right being behind a camera and not being immersed in what the Polish where trying to communicate about what happened there. Even when the reflexive feeling for taking a shot came to me, I was comfortable just letting my eye take it all in and committing it to memory and not to a snapshot that i would look at from time to time.

Richard - like you, I could not bring myself to photograph at either Auschwitz or Birkenau - very moving visit and not photos needed to retain the memory!

You mean vision impaired don't you? - visually impaired suggests a "defective" physiognomy.

eugene1979: Plastic world of Brandon Cunningham has no shadows :-)

If you have been to India, you will know that shadows are optional, given high levels of pollution, cloud cover, etc. #2 has shadow and the others are indoors or in muted light. I can't say that the lack of shadow struck me - I found the soft light in India very forgiving for day time photos

capeminiol: What if you put the wrong item in the wrong pocket?

I can relate to that - have enough trouble remembering which backpack compartment I have put things in!!

The former is king's english - the latter is what people who use feet and inches, gallons and miles choose to call them - same thing, different language - lol.

On article In praise of shooting monochrome landscapes (329 comments in total)

Some years ago - 2013 to be precise - I was photographing in a Quebec City snowstorm and there was no colour so I converted all my images to mono and shared with a Quebec resident whose response was "that is the Quebec that I love". The "portfolio" also allowed me to play with some selective colour accentuation.

Just took my LX3 to India as backup for D800 - very handy when you want to be discrete - processing with DXO Optics Pro works well
