  • A cloudy day. F/1.8, 1/40 sec, ISO 100. Something doesn't add up there. How dark can that cloudy day be?
  • Great advice for an experienced professional. But the OP is a rookie. No experience. No name. No contract. It will take quite a sell-job to convince the client that the rookie's artistic vision is ...
  • Based on the halos around the edges of the rocks, I'm guessing either over- sharpening or perhaps a little too much of the clarity slider in Lightroom?
  • The EXIF data on the photos indicates the 56mm lens not the 35mm you mentioned. Either way, it looks like the main issue is lack of light. It looks like these were all taken in fairly dark, shady ...
  • Hipster was the first word I thought of too. Probably the same people that sit at Starbucks pecking at an ancient typewriter rather than using a laptop. While young people in the 60s and 70s had ...
  • You were given really ridiculous advice.
  • Where did you get the idea that the purpose of the photos is documentary?  From a quick glance at the site, it looks like you pay $15 dollars, choose one of the 13 categories you want to enter (in ...
  • Was that shot using an electronic shutter? The fact that it appears to affect only moving objects makes me think of "rolling shutter" distortions caused when photographing moving objects with an ...
  • Since no one has responded... AFAIK, the only downside to using Long Exposure NR is that it doubles the exposure time. E.g. A 2 minute exposure requires an additional 2 minutes to apply the NR ...
  • Just a quick comment about the second photo: This shot is obviously about  symmetry. But it's not quite symmetrical. You were standing just a bit to the left of the bridge center. The slight ...
  • I think practice is required rather than a front camera. Everyone goes through an adaptation period with a new car - learning where it's corners are. But almost no one actually spends a few ...
  • I'm curious. What is the point of having a camera at the top of the windshield and a viewing screen somewhere on the dash? As was mentioned, there are lots of dash cams available that record ...
  • I wear glasses and find bright conditions a real challenge just because I can't get my eyeball right up the EVF to block the light. Wearing a brimmed hat helps quite a bit.
  • "Leading the night was the Twombly "blackboard" painting, Untitled (New York City), 1968, which well exceeded its presale estimate of about $60 million. Covered with his trademark looping white ...
  • Hmmm, Avira Anti-Virus is blocking Paypal as a phishing site. Haven't seen that before. Anybody else have any issues?
  • Replied in Contrast
    I don't think anyone has actually answered the question you asked. Please correct me if I am mistaken, but I took your original question to be about why the foreground has good contrast and ...
