Yes, like most Fortune 500 corporations.

George Smiley- The spy who came in from the cold. That was my immediate reaction. Good job.

What a joke! It would take at least a year's worth of wedding assignments for the average DPR photographer to buy a Bentley!

Same ( or better! ) shots could have been made with a couple of portable electronic flash units ( Photix Indra 500 ).

LiveFromPhilly: Finally a fast 50! As a street shooter, you can never have too many options at 50mm.

When I shoot street, I shoot at f/4, just like Henri Cartier Bresson.

On photo A Space Fortress in the Urban landscape at night challenge (10 comments in total)

I actually changed my mind on this image. When I viewed it a 100% and started to look at all the detail ( lilypads ) and this being a metaphor for a space ship, it's best as is!

On photo A Space Fortress in the Urban landscape at night challenge (10 comments in total)

Excellent shot! Now comes the however.
The reflection is too bright. It looks like you just flipped the image in Photoshop. Also, if you add slight ripples ( in Photoshop ) to the bottom image, I feel it would add more realism ( even though I know it might not be.)
Right now, it's a bit too busy and the bottom reflection is competing for attention.
So, overall a great shot and just putting in my 2 cents worth ( and that's probably what it's worth to you and 50% of the viewers! )

Kind of feel like I'm looking through a kaleidoscope. Excellent!

If someone else is going there, try a round fish eye just for fun.

On article Hands on with the Hasselblad H6D 50c/100c (267 comments in total)

When I was in the Best Buy store a few days ago, I noticed some magnificent looking prints in the Apple section. Probably 50" X 75". No noise and very sharp. Probably made with a Hasselblad. Actually, I'm not sure you can still buy a digital back for a 4 x 5 camera?

Excellent photo! Everyone is a critic so I'll put in my 2 cents.
I would crop it tighter so that I could better see the exquisite detail!

Really cool! I can't figure out if it's a color or B & W image.

On photo Rusted Trucks in the Random Items - Challenge 2 challenge (6 comments in total)

The rendition is fine but the sharpness is not quite there. Maybe it's a combination of too slow shutter speed, too low aperture and the characteristics of that " do it all " zoom.

Nonetheless, a beautiful shot with great composition!

On article The long, difficult road to Pentax full-frame (617 comments in total)

I've always had a thing for Pentax. Even though I mostly used Nikon, when I tried the fabulous Pentax LX, I had to have one. I still own it!
It was 3/4 the size of a Nikon F2 and silky smooth to use.

Now I'm more or less with Olympus ( EM-1 ) so switching would pose a problem.

Great shot except for that straight, black part on the bottom 1/10 of the image.
