beautiful color and composition, quite a bit over sharpened in my opinion.

On photo IMG_4278 in the Ad campaign: Rage challenge (13 comments in total)

Congrats, fabulous image. Could you share with us a little about the production and post techniques?

I am at a loss as to how you might have created the m-blur and flame like effects unless they were completely done in post using image editing SW. Even if they were, I'd appreciate some insight into how you managed to get the flame like effect to form a face. Was it intentional?

Looks like barley (not rice) to me.

On photo Gay Pride in the Pride challenge (1 comment in total)

that's absolutely terrible. It show's how useless these challenges are.

1. Adobe's pricing is too high -- cost is about double, more if you skip versions
2. Having to repeatedly pay to retain access --
3. The need to occasionally connect to the Internet/Cloud
4. Uncertainty over future of Adobe or pricing -- I am certain that it will only increase

I sincerely hope that this will be their undoing.

On article Which mobile platform is best for photographers? (16 comments in total)

You are better off looking at the hardware. 99% of mobile editing apps are bs & useless. You are better off to capture the best image possible, so not much editing is required. So what if there are 20,000 IOS photo app that all do the same thing? We don't download 20,000 apps to edit our images or for that matter even 789!

How about a removable mSD card? This is probably the biggest feature for mobile photography.

This article assumes its readers are stupid.

The new engine apparently does not even support the simplest of Boolean logic like AND OR NOT or quotes, how pathetic.

The new "improved" search engine is terrible. It offers way fewer options to drill down to the actual data you need. The results are less accurate and forces one to spend way more time sifting through useless chaff. Perhaps, this is what dpr wants.

It does appear to be designed to try and point you to the pages that dpr wants you to visit. Good job there. DPR use to be far and away the best manged forum that of which I had the pleasure to be a member. Since the acquisition by Amazon, I have watched the dpr devolve further & further as the site focused on bell & whistles as opposed to content. Your users are not toddlers looking to be spoon fed. We can get that from the manufactures' websites.

Please bring back the old engine, at least as an advanced options. While you are at it add an option to limit searches to our own posts. Now that would be handy.

On photo Solar Moon in the Where I sleep challenge (11 comments in total)

Thx for all the compliments, everyone. This is my first first place and my first top ten result. I'd imagine that some down votes came from people not feeling this picture met the challenge rules, due to its being outside. If it is any cosolation, I have spent close to a 500 nights in this tent

I've learned not to take challenges too seriously, but I must admit, it was great to win.

On article Nikon D4 overview (839 comments in total)
In reply to:

Franco8: With more pixels is it going have more noise over the D3s at high ISO.
I have my doughts. Who cares about pixie count, noise is what degrades the image quality.
Dunno if I should grab a D3s while I can or wait till I see true evidence
That the d4 has improved noise levels.

More pixels, does not mean more noise. MP's have continued to steadily increase since the kodak AP, yet noise levels have continued to drop. I wish people here would get beyond that myth.

On photo Kids playing in Kashgar's old town in the street photography ( colour ) - 1 challenge (1 comment in total)

It's amazing that such a poorly focused image could do so well. Very dynamic and colorful tho. Kashgar is an amazing place.
