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.

On photo Devon in the The Green Green Grass of Home. challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

mais51: Don't really like the tire marks - but that just me - the photo is great

Given the naturalness of the image posted, I still maintain your critique is unwarranted and ridiculous. As is your notion that you need to re-arrange nature with Photoshop to get a perfect image.

And don’t try to run the Photoshop line by me either; I use it all the time, and perhaps the OP did as well, but there’s no absolute requirement to use it the way you suggest.

The OP posted what they thought the image should be, and obviously most agreed given their first place win. But even if it hadn’t taken first place, it’s their vision, not yours.

At any rate, we’ll agree to disagree agreeably and move on.

Peace-:)

That's not a standard, it's a nit-pic beyond all reasonable expectation. But as you suggest, to each his own.

Were they supposed to ask nature to quickly heal itself before having its photo taken? I mean really??? That's your complaint?

Anyway I love the greenness of this scenery. Very regal.

ADMint: Where was this shot? It's a beautiful photo.

Thanks. Though it could have been shot anywhere, it looks remarkably like an area I was in at Buckroe Beach (Hampton VA) last week. Regardless, beautiful photo. Congrats.
