Sin City atmosphere. Very nice.

mosc: I don't know how anything is ever in focus with that shallow a depth of field. I understand sometimes it's dark and you need f2.8 even at high ISO but damn. That's a pretty dramatic cliff of DOF fall-off

Sharp corners, amazing reach. Just seems like overkill is basic intent (and price) but I guess this is never something I'd actually want so I can't understand it's purpose.

T3: DoF is also a function of circle of confusion.

jsevidon: Really great breakthrough in bragging rights. Now all we need is a 43,000 + hour battery to go with it.

@panther fan: your calculation is off by several magnitudes.

maxnimo: Beautiful videos, but the description confuses me. To me it looks like a combination of slow motion and speeded-up motion, with some good image stabilization, so why make it out as something revolutionary?

Try flying a drone/heli for kilometers in moderate wind, speed up the footage and you'll see why "some good image stabilization" will not cut it. Results will be shaky as hell.

Shane Zeppelin: I think it's great to live in a time where you can capture great video and photos on a device that you carry with you all the time. And that same device allows you to share your photos and videos in an instant or even allows you to edit them in seconds. And that same device allows you to send an email, browse the web, check the weather, and even talk to your friends and family.

This commercial isn't about replacing a RED or 1D, it's about being able to instantly capture memories without having to carry a backpack full of gear or even carrying a compact camera with you everywhere you go. Sure, it's MP3 vs Vinyl, but you get to enjoy it right now.

"without having to carry a backpack full of gear". Hmm, the article says otherwise. The ad is misleading (to put it mildly) people into thinking that they can achieve this level of imaging with the phone plus some additional hardware and software. But when these additions cost more (or rather WAY more) than the device advertised, then I do not think this ad is on the fair side. Just my opinion, though.

I'd like to see those perfectly focused full res raw samples.

On photo Lucky Tern -2289 in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (10 comments in total)

Very lucky catch, but that's what photography is partially about. Good PP too. The whole scene is almost studio-like.

How did you manage to get telescope time for HST? :)
Wile I like the winner, this is clearly a class above.

On photo The Tannery of Fez in the North Africa: Non-portraits challenge (3 comments in total)

I visited these tanneries in Fez (and in Marrakesh as well). I never forget the smell these people work in every day. Your photo brings back some nice memories. I also hesitated to enter this challenge with a tannery photo, but after seeing yours I decided to include another one.

On photo Pottery in the North Africa: Non-portraits challenge (1 comment in total)

It would be nice if you included something in the frame to relate the scale to. A human figure maybe. Otherwise good picture.

MargalitIL: I like the parts where the view can be seen through the thin clouds, but unfortunately this is only a small part of the frame. The major part of the frame is covered with rather plain clouds. I'd like to see more details there.
Also, when viewed in full size there is a lot of noise.

I guess there's no one-size-fits-all solution: you want more details in the clouds, others want whiter clouds (less detail). Nevertheless, I hope you like it :-)

Thank you everyone for the votes and kind comments.

This was my favourite from the entire challenge. Not only because I love Lake Bled (been there two times), but because of the mood, the composition... and that figure on the ice sells it completely.

CalBoy87: I like all in this shot except colors. I like to see clouds more white and more vivid colors on the ground, but I guess that is my viewpoint only.

Tried whiter clouds, but then detail was lost, as they're already very close to white.

santamonica812: Good idea for this challenge. I love thick fog/mist, and have spent many happy hours in northern India, happily and patiently waiting for these little breaks in the fog. Thanks for submitting this and for bringing back those pleasant memories. :-)

Given the great distance of the non-white subjects, this is almost an abstract image. Very nice.

The photo was taken in Switzerland in a small village called Hasliberg Reuti above the city of Meiringen. I was 'stationed' on the opposing hill to this house, about 3 km from the house on the photo. I was not planning on taking pictures but I changed my mind after seeing the clouds go by in the valley below.
India and China has indeed some very good locations for cloudy images.

RuthC: This is a beautiful photo, with an interesting story. It is much softer than many we see in DPR challenges where HDR and over-saturated, over-sharpened shots are the norm. I really like it.

Yes, I'm really depressed to see over-sharpened and over-processed images all over the place. Also when a photo has no halo at the edges it is considered soft...
Clouds are not easy to sharpen as they are soft by their very nature.

bettyhilda: Great capture! I like the composition and can't think of any way to improve on this without losing something that works so well now.

Thank you.
