I could have sworn this was a picture of Jasper getting eaten by a frog. ;-) Nice shot!

What's the rough recipe for cooking this up? Don't get me wrong, I like the image very much.

On photo I am an Elephant in the An A to Z of Subjects- Week 5, E challenge (25 comments in total)

I love this portrait. I am not bothered by the things that others have criticized. The slight cropping of the tusk creates edge tension, as does the all-over tight framing. Not really a bad thing in the context of an expressive portrait. At least that's how I feel about it. The PP is strong, but it doesn't distract me from the essence of the picture, which is a great capture of this great creature's characterful face.

Considering the Kowa 8.5 is huge, this much smaller 7.6 mm lens seems to be an interesting option - Pending lens performance test results. this is the kind of lens I have been waiting for for 7 years.

Great shot. Did the egret incessantly scream "Nyah nyah nyah"?

What pier is this?

On article Camera roundups: What to buy and why (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

RStyga: Let's us dispense with the myth that all "professional" photographers know exactly what they want or what it is required. I have seen a fair share of them not having a clue about what gear to buy, not only because they fail to follow the industry's rapid changes (understandable to a certain a extent) but also because they don't even know basic technological terminology (e.g. what is VC/IS/OIS/IS).

There is a significant difference between a person who makes money out of taking photographs, a photographer (in the artistic sense), and one who knows about photographic technology and application. Neither category implies any of the other.

Actually, it comes from Latin and the word "money" has nothing to do with it.

How about more economical and larger capacity ink cartridges that are also environmentally friendlier? Those would cut into profits, so we won't get those (from the OEM makers).

King Penguin: The long slow drawn-out death of the Pentax name has officially they're just a brand, next just a brand in some countries, the rest of the cameras branded Ricoh in core countries, then eventually re-launched as the nostalgic version of the Ricoh camera of the time to pep up it's sales for a few extra years before the new Ricoh model is launched....

They lost the digital race.......which company is next?

Asahi Optical has always made excellent beer goggles. ;-)

Adobe is completely off my list of acceptable companies, joining Bank of America, AT&T and Electronic Arts. Bye-bye!
