happypoppeye: What's the difference between an aeroplane and airplane? ...no, seriously.

hmmm - sounds like a recipe for landing a Mars lander at the wrong velocity :-)

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 (342 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

Karsh of Ottawa - without peer!! Loved his portraits 50 years ago and nothing has changed (other than my getting older!)

On article Erez Marom: On the importance of naming images (107 comments in total)

What about sticking to descriptive titles or captioning - seems to have worked for the great masters - perhaps the more esoteric is suited to the likes of Jackson Pollock's Blue Poles - never did get the reference or inference, but you don't forget it!! Better a title than none - I always feel that there is something lacking in the artist communicating with her/his viewers with a title - Untitled.

madeinxyz: In all fairness, I wish want to point out at a time where so many people were using pirated ADOBE CS software. For anyone who has a clean conscience, good for you, but even you probably knew someone who hadn't had a clean vest.

Another thing: Many companies that I worked for tried not to upgrade their CS for as long as they could, because of course, it costs money. Sometimes, I meet people working in companies that still use CS3. Which is their right, of course.

Adobe has to grow as a company and deliver more products that can enable artists to do even more. Technology is rapidly changing and so are the skills that handle technology. For Adobe it is alpha and omega to be ready to face those changes and expectations. A subscription based fee model allows them to better calculate investments.

I think you missed my point - my point being exactly that which you make. Perhaps you should read my comments again, if they are not too succinct for you.
With respect, I was probably using computers when you were in diapers.

If we buy a car, we expect 3 or 5 year warranty - beyond that, the ongoing cost of repairs and maintenance are on us and there comes a time that the manufacturer calls time on parts and service. So why do we expect lifetime upgrades, free of charge for software??

Dare I say that if you only use it occasionally, then PS or CC is not really the product for you - to use your analogy - you can't have your cake and eat it too!! I held off on CC for some time, but now use the $9.99 (AUD) per month option especially since NX2 and OS10.10 don't talk to one another. Have you considered DxO Optics Pro??

Peter Del: Many good pictures, but I am surprised that dpr have not made a comment on multiple entries.
If there are 1200 entries and you post 1 picture, you stand a 1 in 1200 chance of it being selected, but if you post 25 pictures your chances have unfairly increased to 1 in 48!!!!!!!

Yeah - the real challenge is finding "my best shot"!!

Badger1952: would love to but I cannot be bothered resizing 36Mp images from D800 - tried twice to upload and was told that a 6.8Mb file was too big - so I will sit back and enjoy all the other posts from my fellow shutterbugs :-)

Thanks guys - enjoyed all your replies (lol) - my comment was a little tongue in cheek (Australian!!) and not meant to be taken seriously - I did upload an image that I resized in PS CC - I use DxO and the saved files end up up to 60Mb - I was just being lazy

Common sense, not the law, should prevail - as is pointed out below, the monkey clearly cannot own or have copyright to the images, copyright bellows to Mr Slate. We all know that the law is an ass!!!!

And then there are the ugly Nikon lens caps with Nikon plastered on the front so that you don't have anywhere to stick this thing - anyway you want to tell the world that you are shooting with Nikon optics so why cover it up -- lol!!

I have been told by Nikon that 2.4.5 is not ready to run with OS Mavericks- I have it running on MacBoook Pro running OSX 10.9 but it installs and crashes on macbook Air running 10.9 - is there are work around?

On article Soak in the season with these vivid summer photos (36 comments in total)

Great images, but I can't help but wonder whether the ones with the leaping people have been superimposed - why no splash from jumping out of the water - unless they are reincarnations of Bob Beaman!

On the facade of the Uffizi - "all art was modern once" - but these - hmm, best left in the can! Philistine I may be - but the images don't COMMUNICATE anything to me and hence are worthless.
