Noah Placebo: Nothing beats Kodachrome. Nothing.

Quick and to the point. I could have put down here Noah's words, they are stuck in my my head, day in and day out, and this is why i had to simulate the real thing studying 1000s of good and bad output and scans and finally nailing or getting so close, that i can now say this : nothing beats digital K64, nothing ! And digital Ektachrome too. And digital Provia 100F. And digital Tri-X 400 and HP5+

Cannot wait for it ! 2 x Leica Minilux 40mm and 1 Nikon Ti 28 are getting very impatient too .. Although i hope it will not fail me and match or surpass my version of it - a digital Kodachrome off Fuji, Panny and Oly raws on which i worked for years before it came finally right - my Kodachrome 6400 in 2016 ;-)

RickBuddy: This photographer has courage. Too many times the incident photos come from a camera that quickly hits the floor.

Negatif.. Pls see my point 3 above.

In short - kudos to the photographer for reaction, going for what he is, it takes something i guess. This aside .. Few points :

1. You do not need a professional photographer for this image. You need something, it involves determination and decisiveness and .. knowledge that you will not be shot at - subject wanting this photo out ..

2. Please remove "graphical image" from icon - this is NOT a graphical image

3. You should do a portrait of the "bang bang club" guys, then we talk about "in the fire line with the cameras" .. It was film then too

4. This is not such a great image (focus / sharpness, DOF) or it is cropped and all, unless .. we are seeing some processing to protect something ..

5. 9/10 obsessed with photography amateurs - the dreaming photography - would have snapped.. If you tell me that he had the left hand gesture up there and right down with gun - for a second or 2 only, i will tell you where to go ..

Octane: how much is Nik software paying to get featured here for every little update or other minor thing they do?

There are so many really good an interesting software packages related to photography that never even get mentioned here, but Nik software gets in the news her on a regular basis.

+1 ! This whole rat race is getting out of control .. All we need is LR4 and Aperture 4
