On photo "Hole in the Wall" in the Wall challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

wam7: It really is off the beaten trail, here is an excellent youtube video showing exactly where in the world it is and the trail leading to it. https://youtu.be/tm3Mx9p-DsQ

One of the reasons I enjoy these challenges is the ability to see parts of the world that hitherto I probably would have missed.

Thanks for sharing Gordon, great picture.
Regards, Antonio

That video cuts out some of the time it takes to get there. It also shows Sherwood Falls which is a little further down stream - and is more difficult to get to. It very briefly shows the rope you need to hold onto at one point where the trail on the edge of a ravine is only about 10" wide. You have to cross a small river to properly see the falls. Here's a snap of how the falls look: http://gordonpritchard.blogspot.ca/2016/05/the-hidden-falls-near-hole-in-wall-port.html

ADMint: WOW...

This is something out of a fantasy movie. And from a distance it looks like a dragon's eye. And masterful job on post processing. Congrats.

Thanks! It's a 20 minute walk off the highway down an unmarked, difficult to navigate, mountain bike trail - so it's mostly just the locals who know about it.

justmeMN: Whee! A flat black rectangle with two "camera holes" in it. An exciting leak. :-)

Yep, revolutionary. Not sure if the other cell phone makers will be able to beat this. Maybe three cameras?

When will DPR test compare these lenses against each other?

gordonpritchard: Bravo (although this update should make it V 2.0 LOL)

I was thinking in terms of features. And I'd pay. BTW it's 1.5.1

The examples appear to show that the content aware fill is just creating the content by cloning the remaining area (watch the rocky beach foreground) - i.e. copy/paste.

Is it my imagination or is it correct that the dynamic range in the RAW files is not very wide? They seem to have blown highlights and plugged shadows in some of the concert shots.

Roland Karlsson: Nice, but I would not call it creative. It is a very common trick.

I originally thought the photo was going to be disqualified.

tbcass: So far the only one that qualifies. It may win by default.

@tbcass - this is definitely not the only one that qualifies.

In reply to:

oilpiers: I got disqualified for reportedly not using the sample image. I used it, just changed the orientation, which is something you can do in post processing. I was not allowed to respond to the message, so I am posting it here.

The orientation of #16 was changed - or was your change of orientation quite different?

On challenge Post Processing Skill challenge - Moon Surface (8 comments in total)

After seeing the winning images I withdrew mine in quiet protest. Never done that for a challenge before but felt that was the only way to protest how this specific challenge was handled.

Really? "God beams" without an atmosphere and with the "light" coming from the wrong direction?

How does this exsample "bring out the detail of the moon surface"? It's a mess.

So much detail lost in this one.

On challenge Post Processing Skill challenge - Moon Surface (8 comments in total)

Hmmm...let's see, the rule states: "Showcase your post processing skill in bringing out the detail of the moon surface." The winning shot seems to have clearly brought out all the jpeg artifacts that apparently cover the Moon's surface. Amazing.

In reply to:

darngooddesign: It would be great to see a comparison between this and B&W images from a color M. Take the same photos with either camera; it would help illustrate the benefits of a dedicated b&w sensor..

Yes, because looking at the studio shot comparison - the jpeg images look soft and lacked detail compared with the color shot. Not impressive at all.
BTW I looked at the B&W Civil Warish fellow and compared it with the Sony a57 and a77ii (just because that's what I use).
