    Huh? He specifically said "if I am not working on my shot." I was clearly working on my shot.
  • Understood, but I still think it's kind of rude. It's like they're prioritizing their desire for a picture over my desire for the best possible shot. And, to be fair, I'm doing the opposite. But I ...

    Thank you, alcelc. It's nice to see that there are SOME rational people around here. Others seem to almost feel as if there is something wrong with taking this seriously!
  • Hmm, I have to wonder, then, why they asked me and not anyone else who was there. Also, it's not the first time this has happened -- I ALWAYS get far more requests when carrying around my DSLR ...
  • I would say that is by definition impolite to interrupt someone who is clearly doing something. I consider myself very polite, and I know that I would never consider doing that. I would look for ...
  • I guess we'll have to agree to disagree a bit, or a lot. Plus, whether or not I was truly working, I was clearly concentrating and serious about what I was doing, especially in that moment. If I ...
  • Hmm, I would think that the tripod, with the 3-way geared head, in and of itself is a pretty strong indication. Not that I expect them to know about tripod heads, but it was clear that I wasn't ...
  • Good response! Yes, I could have done so, and they would probably have replied that by then the sunset will be done and it won't be as nice a picture. Of course, that's exactly why I, too, wanted ...
  • I didn't ask WHY they wanted the picture. I know very well why they wanted it. My question was is it reasonable to not want to be bothered when it was clear that I was doing serious work and in ...
  • Thank you -- obviously I agree!
  • Created discussion thread Annoyance Over Picture Requests
    I'm only posting this here because I found that DPreview has this general discussion forum -- the question is about as non-technical as it gets! So I was out at Liberty State Park in Jersey City ...
  • I probably should, but don't actually know how to find this information! I can obviously find the focal length of the shot, but not what distance it was focused at. Plus, even if I did somehow ...
  • You know what? That might be the best suggestion here so far (no offense to anyone else!). That is, even if I can't figure out what the exact culprit is, I would think that this SHOULD prevent it ...
  • AF-S. I'm not sure what you mean by the second question. As for the focus points, good question. I'm assuming you're referring to the feature in Playback mode when you press up to go through the ...
  • I appreciate the thoughts, but it most certainly WAS on a tripod. Both a Benro tripod and head. And with a three-second delay. No, I would never even attempt that without a tripod! What else? Oh, I ...
  • It was a good Benro tripod. Good thought, but, no, I really don't think that was the issue. And a 3-second delay, by the way.
  • Well, I wouldn't be surprised if it was my error, but what error? That, to me, is the issue. But then again it's also strange that I made that error for that pic but not the others. Did I just ...
  • Created discussion thread Trouble with Blurry Images!
    On two separate occasions now, I have experienced what I can only call a massive failure of my camera's (Nikon D750) focus mechanism. As you'll see, these are both interior shots (I don't think ...
