On photo Geometric Labyrinth in the Lines challenge (14 comments in total)
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 (14 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:)

As soon as I saw this article and saw the images I thought to myself they're be lots of haters in here declaring they could do better. They've no clue that sometimes simplicity in itself is an art form. It's the subtlety of things that make it so.

As the saying goes - haters gonna hate.

Really like this idea. Going to have to borrow it one day. Not so sure about the vignette though. Nice image nonetheless. Congrats.

ADMint: Maybe it’s me or I'm, dare I say it... old fashioned, but these bags are starting to look more and more like women purses or fashion statements than regular camera bags. I mean, I get that manufacturers are trying to spruce things up but man. Now rather than talking photography we'll all be talking fashion statements... Oh, how I love that color, and the design... is that Gucci?

Style and color are just as important to me as "practicability and price". That said, I still want a camera bag not a fashion piece.

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.

On photo INFERNO in the Get to Work (Power Tools) challenge (5 comments in total)

Sounds like sour grapes. The host obviously accepted the image, so perhaps you guys should take it up with them. Personally I would find it unfair if the host gave in to the criticisms now and decided to remove it.

Regardless, it is an excellent image and very well processed.

Thank you. I Just played around with the color till I got the saturation I wanted without going too far. Glad you like it.

In reply to:

Dane Maris: I think this review should have considered the Nikkor 24mm 1.4G ED.

It still it would have been nice to see comparisons between the two. Perhaps at a no so distant future?

On photo Road of Many Turns in the The winding road challenge (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

ADMint: This is a beautiful image. The only thing I don't like about it though is that bus; it just looks out of place. Nonetheless great image, and agree with first place.

Normally I'd agree about perspective; but given the overall scope of the image, in this instance, the bus adds nothing, and is, in my opinion, an unnecessary distraction. However, this is a minor critique as I still think it's a great shot. I just wanted to pass my thoughts about the bus.

Peace:)

Really nice image here and I love the view. I've been to Iceland before but never visited Akureyri. Had a chance but missed out. That said, during my visits, I was out of photography at the time, so I never had those photo opportunities. Something I surely regret now, and plan on going back one day just for the photo opportunity.

Anyway that's an impressive view.
