    I think expanding the canvas and cloning in sky above the topmost, flat rock on the left, renders the scene more interestingly majestic -- as does increasing color and luminosity contrast. (Quick ...
  • Replied in How would you?
    Rather than dodge and burn, much quicker to use the color picker tool to select the luminosity of the white that you want, and then brush it in.
  • I don't know for sure, but I'd be surprised if they would devote production resources to a camera model that had been superseded, and is selling at about half of list price...
  • There is no fail safe approach to the situations you describe (that I know of). Except to sell only in person, receiving cash, meeting at a public place. Or, if I were you, with your concerns ...
  • Never quite saw the point, in theory or in practice, of receiving critiques from random others. Since the evaluation of photographic artistry is completely subjective I want to see the photos of ...
  • Thanks!
  • For Mac only?
  • It's a fine image, but because the water is so pervasively gray, and is therefore not reflecting the highly saturated cyan/blues in the sky, the processing perhaps looks a bit "off".
  • At least three significant confounding variables they seem unaware of: 1) choices made in the processing of the film; 2) the specific properties and settings of the scanner for film; 3) the ...
  • Yes, there are times when I feel that the combination of 6D + 17-40L is just what's called for. (It's just that those occasions are increasingly infrequent.) BTW: I'm not sure a few extra batteries ...
  • Replied in Sympathize
    I understand where you're coming from. I own two Canon DSLRs (6D, 750D) and decided to try the (relatively) inexpensive mirrorless M10 with the 15-45 mm, collapsible lens.  The combination is ...
  • The SL2 is targeted at the consumer who won't know or care whether or not IS is running continuously in live view. Canon: save a few pennies and omit the choice. You bought the cheapest DSLR they ...
  • Thanks Simon, for the explication --
  • Simon, Thanks for your reply. It raises a few questions. 1. How do you change the color profile in Color Navigator? When I open Color Navigator I can choose a target for calibration, but not, it ...
  • I'd also recommend Topaz Detail. Once you've reduced the noise, you can adjust the "detail" slider to retrieve detail, so you can find an optimal balance between noise and detail for your image.
  • Others may explain in detail, but it doesn't work the way you think it does. All of the RGB values in your file are reinterpreted when you change color spaces.  Hence, the image looks different. By ...
  • You think it's unfortunate that Amazon via DPReview is in the business of generating revenue? If it didn't generate $$ for Amazon it wouldn't exist. After all, it's not a public utility, a ...
  • Save money, buy the 6D. I have one, it's a fantastic camera  (if you don't do action photography), and since the release of the 6D mk 2 the price has come down so it's a relative bargain. The Nikon ...
  • I have a 6D and would very much like to have a flippy rear screen, and the faster focusing in liveview would be nice, but not essential (I don't shoot video), but I'm on the fence because I'm not ...
