Morten you remind me Don McCullin

"The reason I am doing these new landscapes, this new Roman project, is because it’s a form of healing. I’m kind of healing myself. "

"I went to war because I felt I was suited to do it. I was young and ambitious, but the ambition started to fade ..... Things the average man in the street simply wouldn’t understand, because he’s never been there, thank God."

I adore these Hare photographs.

I would like to know did this photographer (do such photographers) give their heart at least partially to the people they photograph or is it just about getting the photo.

Photographer Kevin Carter took his own life after having his heart ripped apart from pulitzer prize photograph he took famine child vulture waiting.

Here's some photographs transformed
A break from the norm
Just a little something to set free
From all that hardcorore ff vs apsc vs m/43 monotony
That's gotten to be a little bit out of control.

Here's some photographs
Smiles laughs giggles soft subtle mix
Happy Happy Happy times
Time to sit back and unwind.

jacketpotato: Sofi if you are reading these comments :

As you dig CCD Panasonic FX150 "I always have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 (2008) on me. It literally lives in my bag and I never leave home without it. "
And
"I’d have art directors telling me, 'this stuff is great, but can you give it to us in higher resolution?' "

Checkout F1.8-F2.4 CCD 1/1.7 sensor 10MP 24mm-72mm Schneider, Tilt OLED screen Samsung EX1 aka TL500.

(I had it 2011 it's rather neat).

Ricoh compacts somehow rendered grungy Black n White I really liked : i had GX8, GX100, Caplio R5.

Fuji Super CCD similar grungy Black n White real charming colors : Porsche designed 4800 I had.

Sofi has most different CCD looks covered : Super CCD Fuji E900, Olympus CCD XZ1, Ricoh CCD GX100 for BnW, Leica approved lens on LX2 LX5 FX150, Canon G2 G6 S40.

Only Schneider lens CCD Samsung Ex1/TL500, Zeiss Lens Sony F707/717, Nikon P1, Pentax Optio 555, Kodak Z1085, Casio QV5700 to complete the set.

On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom (106 comments in total)

Reading glowing endorsements dpreview forumees : Brought C8080 to test against Leica Digilux 2.

C8080 lens below Leica Digilux 2 lens quality.
C8080 zoom noise drove me to distraction.

C8080 went to new home.

Olympus C2040 F1.8 and Olympus C2100UZ I rated far more than C8080.
C2100UZ 38-380 lens quality up there with Leica Digilux 2.
C2040 atmospheric rendering .... dreamy.

On article In praise of shooting monochrome landscapes (335 comments in total)

When there are folk here saying the featured article is over processed , "fake" , hdr, not letting natural landscape shine ...

"bland" photos are an antidote.

Calmness, naturalness, sereneness in blandness ...
Something Dpr would do well to understand.

Share articles featuring monochrome landscapes just as they are alongside sudden impact articles as this.

Made me smile :-))

I deliberately drew attention to "blandness"

Calmness, naturalness, sereneness in blandness ...
Something Dpr would do well to understand instead of just pushing sudden impact photos.

You are clueless as to why I made the comment.

Collectors desire because they have a Void which they don't know how to fill, collecting such items shall never even begin to fill this Void.

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 (216 comments in total)

Sony just release already an Apsc 24-105 F2.8 constant camera.
Easy for you.

You already have 1inch F1.8-F2.8 24-70mm Rx100mk4.
Panasonic have m43 F1.7-F2.8 24-75mm Lx100.

Sure it's gonna be trifle larger than Lx100, gosh will it smoke slow as molasses Leica XVario F6.4 70mm :-)

While you are at it make the lens swivel ala V505 F707/717
