  • Thanks for the test. Just curious why you didn't take one shot that didn't blow out the highlights in the bright patch of the sky on the left?
  • Try resizing the first image in your photostream  so that the width is 1600 rather than 1599. That one pixel may be making a different since 1600 width is a "recognized" Flickr size. Hope this helps..
  • Replied in B&W version
    You have a wonderful interplay of complex shapes here, and I think that a monochrome version really brings that out.
  • Nice shot! My only suggestion would be to eliminate the conspicuous purple chromatic aberration in the upper right hand corner.
  • The Topaz PS plug-in "Lens Effects" will be your friend. Good luck!
  • In my experience with the G7x, f4 at 8.8 focal length produces a very deep depth of field, (although I haven't done the calculations -- just based on what I'm seeing). I'm not disputing the problem ...
  • Yes, I saw your images -- very nice! But if one is pixel peeking I think they would look even better at f4. I think you would have greater leeway for reducing noise while still retaining detail. I ...
  • Your aperture is too small in most of these images. The G7x, in my experience, is best at around f4. Your Flickr photos taken at that aperture, and larger -- f2.8 -- look fine. That's the problem, ...
  • It seems not -- for the G7x such are the compromises that follow I guess from designing such a small zoom lens for a 1" sensor which covers 24-100 mm starting at f1.8. Maybe the A640 is the camera ...
  • No, unfortunately, I haven't found any difference with the macro setting. The suggestion to step back, and use a 35 -- 50 mm focal length, and then crop, is a reasonable workaround, and is one of ...
  • I own the G7x and shoot a lot with it. I wasn't sure what you would find, but you've found what I have: it has quite blurry edges close up (even not very close up), regardless of how much you stop ...
  • Comparing the sizes of the label in the two images, you're much closer with the G7x than the A640.  Also, why didn't you shoot the same orientation, in addition to distance, with each? (in ...
  • Replied in Yellow trees
    For the most accurate color correction you would begin by setting adjusting the WB at three different tonal levels -- for the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows, because, as your comment implies, ...
  • "And depending on whether we're editing during daytime or at night with warmer in-home lighting, the same display may appear warmer or cooler, respectively. "

    You've lost me here. A knowledgeable...

  • I'd generalize and say that what "works" in any context is not necessarily anything one can state at all, in advance. What works is whatever the photographer/artist creates that embodies his or her ...
  • Excellent photos that show a unique way of seeing. Your unique way of seeing can be undermined by listening to advice by other people, who will tell you to see and to photograph the world the way ...
  • @Joseph Black. It is with pleasure that I announce that "A shirt with a knife sharpener installed" has won first prize in the "awe-inspiring surrealistic image" category.

  • No, not absolute contempt for customers -- rather, offering a product that will provide consumers for entry level cameras exactly what will more than satisfy their needs (including the "food mode"...

  • Wonderful images -- thanks for posting. I agree that the G7X is a stellar camera. By the way, I find that the lens correction program Piccure+ does a good job of diminishing the blurriness of the ...
  • Yes, you download and install Photoshop CC on your computer. But the program establishes an internet connection to Adobe, so that if you stop paying it will be disabled.
