You, me , us reading this post is about the equivalent of the iconic shot of kodak employes taking photos of their plant closing down using their camera phones... If you take a long look in your soul - you'll know that you spend a 10th of what your father spent on magazines.

You probably also have an ipad and all of a sudden you love trees and the planet but don't hesitate to use a full 2-3 sheets of Scott towel to wipe even the tinyest spec of dust...

It's sad, yes, I personally think that the industry will go through a major shutdown of everything and then, 20 years from now, people will be willing to pay 30$ for a magazine just so that they remember how that feels like.

We'll miss it, I know I will.

trust me, show a devastated amusment park and show a full lit one with people in it and you'll see which one wins or makes it further. I'm exagerating but it's really true, all major contests are being won by : shots of people shooting other people, huge natural disasters, disease struck people, into the lives of drug addiction, into the lives of people living in huts without running water on top of mountains etc etc . BTW : the first picture of this post is of an empty swing overlooking the water... no kid jumping for joy there...

I can't wait to pay 5000$ to get this lens ! I'm sure that with the 1000$ zoom the corners in these high-iso shots would of been much different. And look at that center ! Oh and let's not forget sony's usual amazing jpeg engine that has its usual great colours...

On article 10 competitions to keep your photography inspired (24 comments in total)

Hi and thank you for a very informative article! I do want to point out that in most of these competitions judges favor well established(and by that I mean published) photographers. Take the "Travel Photographer of the Year" go through all the past winners (goes back 15 years) and read the Bio's. I'm not saying they don't deserve to be there I'm just saying these people get paid to go all over the world to work on different assignments and in the process they take pictures for their personal pleasure/use etc - hence they come up with portfolios. Myself for example , I go once maybe twice a year on vacation and take pictures while travelling. However, I'm with my girfriend plus am trying to take it all in - yes I'll have great shots but I won't find the time to create themed collections (say contrasts, or cityscapes featuring balconies etc) because if I did , it wouldn't be a vacation anymore it would be a photo trip. Just saying these comps are skewed towards the pros

On article Just posted: Sony Alpha NEX-6 Review (330 comments in total)

All I know that in the comparison section of the review I selected the A900 as one of the four in RAW mode ISO 100, and I could barely notice any differences. That is impressive. Obviously the ergonomics, build quality are not comparable but that definitively shows what a good sensor this piece of equipment has. It can take on some hefty competitors from the big league. Yes the E-mount can be a hassle, yes adapters are required for A mount lenses but hey if you're buying this it's for the portability, I'm guessing most people buying this have maybe 2 lenses maximum (talking 80% of people). People who want top IQ combined with portability this is your product.

Let me demystify what I think of this picture. The couple was edited-in on top of a picture of a lighthouse. The couple was lit by a strobe. Stars were digitally added. The moon as well. PLease vote accordingly. If I am wrong I appologize in advance but I don't see how you have stars on the lighthouse then, and how the light is so strong around the contour of the couple.
