  • Replied in Yes and No
    For Jazz photography it was a 300mm 2.8. For dance photogrphy my 180 2.8 was the lens of choice. Now my Nikon 24mm TS is my favourite for modern architecture, whilst historic monuments are nicer ...
  • Replied in Super Superzoom
    I  decided that the Z24-200 would make a good combination with my Z7 for hiking in our mountains. This  lens has replaced the 24-70 as my "walk around" lens for travel and just messing around. I ...
  • Replied in One Trick Pony
    Most of his photography seems to rest on a particular overexposed blown out highlights look. I got bored with the beach shots after a while. He has his moments in some of the shots where we see a ...
  • Quite frankly, I have never come across this sort of behaviour in all the years I have followed the DPR and other forums. But you will get a few jerks butting in on any argument on any forum, that ...
  • But I think the take up by Conceptual Artists of the photographic medium have changed the landscape somewhat. Before we had photographers like Kertesz, Bresson, Winogrand, and the New Topographic ...
  • Thanks for this link. The critic confirms what I have often suspected about how photography has evolved from well, "photography" into something more pretentious called "art photography". The show ...
  • Replied in Fantasy
    I have followed the M43 forum since 2014 when I bought an EM5. There is a lot of hostility towards users of other formats on that forum as this link illustrates . A perfectly reasonable comparison ...
  • Replied in Fantasy
    A trip over to the M43 Forum will reveal at least two current threads on the same lines as the OP. " Ive had it with FF cameras " is typical of the insecurity many "small sensor" users have with ...
  • Replied in Feeling down
    Yes, very nice.
  • Replied in Coastal
    Nice shots, I love the seaside "out of season".  New location?
  • Yes, I quess  we were talking about the same thing.
  • But he has a business relationship with them none the less. You can deduct this by visiting the old Olympus UK site.
  • We are confusing two things. Sure some great work is done with Olympus gear and extremely long lenses are manageable on this format. But it seems quite a few photographers in a difficult market ( ...
  • The master of "bad" weather light brings us another great set.
  • If you look at shots 2 and 4 the building appears to be leaning backwards, just as it does when you point the camera with a normal lens upwards to get rid of foreground. and get the keystone effect. ...
  • No, the walls of the church lean inwards. I think they tried the same trick, which fools our eyes, but not the camera.
  • These old monumental cemeteries are often a good source of photographic and in your case artistic inspiration. I must explore ours one day. I often find the "must see" things on trips are not ...
  • Ours are mostly natural; they formed around the last Ice Age, but the cause is the same. It seems the disappearance of forest cover is the cause. I took a look a Providence canyon and was impressed.
  • Reminds me I must get up into the Apennines. I like the middle shot best in this set. You feel you are right in the middle of the waterfall.
  • Replied in The black door
    Perfect framing and geometrical correctness in this shot makes it for me. The only gripe is you have not told us where this lovely corridor is.
