cosinaphile: looks like a solid and capable choice for shooters wishing to own,, not rent essential portions of the computer experience.
one owns the computer , and one buys electricity in measured amounts to power it , many feel similarly inclined to own their software tools as well , and for the price offered it be a wise expenditure .... and essentially a finite one , according to the users needs , not the dictates of corporate behemoth .

I not going to debate you on whether to subscribe or not anymore than I'm willing to debate over chocolate vs. vanilla. I'm simply "reminding" that the EULA states you are buying a license to use said software.

Peace:)

LOL - you obviously never read the EULA agreement you HAD to agree with in order to use a software product. If you had, you'd realize you're paying for a "license to use" said program.... even if it's a "perpetual license", the company still owns the program. And the main difference between perpetual and subscription is that you never have to worry about upgrades.

Boky: It's all Russians fault!!! Quickly, let's impose more sunctions on Russia!

I believe the comment was meant as sarcasm.

Anyway I did 26 and retired in 05. Was aircraft mechanic on F4, 15 & 16, FB-111 and B-1. Despite all of that, never really got into aircraft photos. I guess carrying my camera around on the flight line just didn't appeal to me. And yeah I know about the Air Shows, got "volunteered" plenty for them :)

But again, great shot.

This is one of the best single burst fireworks photo I’ve seen in a while. Love the capture. It looks like a giant palm tree over a city. Well done and nice post processing. Congrats.

In reply to:

ADMint: Nice photo. I've a photo of it being built or at least still under construction. Had to look online to see if that was the same structure. Next time I go home I'll have to visit the place with camera.

Congrats on the win :)

I'm definitely checking it out. BTW the first time I saw that structure I was visiting the new World Trade Center. However, the Observation deck wasn't open at that time so that's a visit as well.

Thanks.

widgetbox: Am I the only person who think it looks like CGI or at least "processed" in some/many ways. Certainly very pretty.

Yeah that was my thought when I replied to your post.

In reply to:

ADMint: I love this B&W image. Not sure if the figures were included or added (makes no difference to me), but I Love how they help guide your eye throughout the image. They also give it life. Well done.

Perhaps we should stay in the days where photography was pure. Where any kind of manipulation was considered bad taste. Perhaps we should ban the use of Photoshop and stick with straight out of the camera photos. That technology should not be used for creative purposes, nor should creativity enter the realm of photography. If that's the world of photography you want, count me out.

Peace.

On photo .....the ROYAL LOTUS 2017/08/25-NEW YORK..... in the Wild flowers challenge (13 comments in total)

I don't know what rules were and were not followed; nonetheless, this is one beautiful image. Love the pastel colors; and the post processing makes it look like a painting. Really nice image. Hope the OP framed and hung this shot. Very well deserves it.

On photo Royal Airforce Museum London in the Ejection Seat challenge (2 comments in total)

I believe that's a Martin Baker ejection seat. I was an Egress technician in the USAF where I worked Martin Baker seats on the F4. They didn't look like that version though.

Anyway nice image.

In reply to:

JackM: I was going to say well done, but at 1/20 you just got lucky.

Beautiful image.

Anyway haters gonna hate. And luck is having the ability to take advantage of the situation before you... which still requires skill. And if you have to ask, you don't know.

Peace:)
