On photo Wanted ? in the Money makes the world go round challenge (10 comments in total)

I like this picture. There is not much fisheye effect. I notice a bit of barrel distortion but not much for a fisheye. Everything I take with a fisheye looks really distorted which is what I'm looking for when using that sort of lens. Nice job.

"Use the 'Reading mode' switch (top right of every page) to switch between black and white themes. Your choice is remembered."

Not really. The default is now white and I have to log in for your site to remember me. 98% of the time I never had to log in because I don't post much. Now I have to log in. Why not use black as the default? It has worked for me for the last 10 years.

Is it f2.8 equivalent or is it f2.8 equivalent to f4.2 with the 1.5 corp factor? I wish these things would be stated plainly.

On photo Common Kingfishers (2) in the Bird Fight challenge (14 comments in total)

Holy Moly, what a shot. The only thing I don't like about it is the sig in the lower left. My eye keeps going to it and distracts from an otherwise fantastic shot. My eye keeps starting at the upper bird, then goes to the lower bird, then to the signature. I'm stuck in a holding pattern.

The headline should read;
Sigma announces 30mm F1.4 for E-mount and Micro 4/3 and 50-100mm F1.8 Art for APS-C (non-mirrorless)
That would make more sense and clear up some confusion. e mount started as APSC and now is also FF. I guess the flange space difference dictates why the 50-100 is not available to E-mount and the 30 1.4 is not available to APSC mirrored systems. At any rate, thanks to Sigma for being proactive for other systems. I'm going to have to get the 30 1.4.

I think I was on that one. Aren't there several inclines?

Very impressive. I like the fact that you did not lighten the shadows.

On article Extreme made easy: GoPro HERO4 Session review (64 comments in total)

I opted for the Hero4 Silver because of user changeable batteries but I imagine the video quality is the same. So far I've attached it to my car roof rack and my dashboard. The roof rack is better even though it is noisier up there. Maybe I'll pick this little one up and put it on my kite.

The lens on the camera is a Z 16-70 f4. I'm not seeing that lens in the Sony lens line-up.

I have the stand-alone version of Lightroom and don't see an update for my product; only for the CC version. I'm using version 6.2.1.

$1700 for an APSC body? I don't think I'll be going there even though I can afford it.

On photo St Louis, Mo. in the Your City: Winter's Coming challenge (1 comment in total)

Bummer that the Rams are leaving the big hump. Did you know that the Rams started out in Cleveland (my city) and bailed for LA in 45 or 46? It is true. They only had 1 winning season in Cleveland and that was to win the NFL championship. Google "Cleveland Rams". Believe me; I feel your pain with the Browns leaving Cleveland for Baltimore. Oh well.

I like the bridge railing as a major component in the shot. I use that same motif whenever it is appropriate.

On photo Into the snow in the Your City: Winter's Coming challenge (5 comments in total)

It reminds me of one of the final scenes in one of my favorite pictures "The 3rd man". I don't think it was snowing in the scene but you really captured something. Very well done.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review (865 comments in total)

Had no idea that the minimum shutter speed with flash is 1/2000. My NEX6 min with flash is 1/160. Just tried to take a picture of my cat exiting the litter box; the camera was in "A" and I just took the picture (I never use flash but the lighting required it). All I got was a blur and then I looked that the shutter speed was .5 seconds. Thought what would I get if I shoot in "S". 1/2000 of a second. This is really something.

On photo Life is sooo unfair in the capture the emotion challenge (4 comments in total)

I normally don't comment, but that is a great picture. Was it staged? I have 3 pictures of me when I was about 1 years old taken by my father (all staged). I'm sitting in a wash-pan not looking despondent but sort of happy (or sappy). Anyway, the little girl will enjoy this picture when she gets older if not now.
