Your photo of Maddie is really great! That is an image of a young girl who is close to herself and not posing for the camera. That is such an intimate portrait only a photographer can do. I love it!
Thanks DP team for showing us your photos of the year.

It looks like gen V is a major upgrade over gen IV, and that we have seen in the past related to gen III and gen II too. Sony is doing good when it comes to product development for which the customer is willing to pay for.
But that doesn't mean the previous models are outdated, and Sony is selling them for a while because they are still great.
I own gen III and fully convinced that this is an excellent cam which I will keep for a while, although gen V is considerably more advanced.

Isn't that difference not just what happens in four years in the camera industry? The RIII was released in 2017 and is still an absolute perfect camera for stills photography, while the IV is the most recent derivative is offering more balanced specifications and is looking into video.
It would be a surprise if the IV is not the better cam, but both are at such a high level that it is wrong to talk about better and worse - it is more about improvement and refinement.

... nicely written and extraordinary images - that is really a story! Using a drone gives you so many more options regarding visual story telling especially for landscape photography. Many thanks for such a phantastic article. It reminds in which extraordinary times we are living and that covid is not the only thing we might talk about.

Affinity - such as others - is a piece of software, and most people like to use the product they have started with. That is what happenend with the first word processor software products on a PC too. Hence, the Adobe guys love what they know and used to ... it is so understandable. When I started image processing there were mature versions of Capture One and Adobe available, and soon after Affinity appeared. So, I did not have too much of experience with other products before started using Affinity ... and for me it worked quite well. I like the speed and the integrated approach having RAW processing power and image processing features. The RAW engine is not too limited, but manageing highlights was quite under averaged ... I have to look whether it is now improved. Overall Affinity is - same like other products - a good product, not without flaws but well worth its price and performance.

Many thanks for this interesting software. It sounds a bit like an adjustable tone mapping process which is available in Affinity Photo too. There you have a slider to decide between original image and full HDR/SDR image. CarVac - is it working like this? That is indeed an interesting approach because it helps to rescue images from being too contrast-rich.
