  • I can’t speak for the i version but the ATX version is just brilliant. It might be my favourite lens ever. Superb macro lens, great portrait lens and small and light it makes an excellent ...
  • I completely disagree. It was transformative, and a leap to another level of understanding of art.
  • Painting did not die at the end of the 19th century. The 20th century brought Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Post-Modernism, all of which have had an enormous influence on all ...
  • I’ve got a Sirui KX-40 which is very good and doesn’t move no matter what I put on it. Rated for 35kg

    Well I thought it was an excellent image and it works well on the cover of the magazine. I am also sad to see that Lisa has closed her account. i do hope it's not connected to this thread, but it ...
  • You must remember that painting showed people the world when there was no photography, no film, no printed pictures. Paint was exotic, expensive and elitist. Religious iconography showed people the ...
  • I’ve got a laptop with 2.4ghz i7, 16Gb of memory and it runs DXO Deep Prime and GigaPixel at the same time without much trouble
  • Of course, today was a day that I didn't have my camera with me so this is with the phone
  • The wires are good. They are urban infrastructure

    In your opinion. Don’t be so arrogant and patronising. Much more than ‘stray leaves’ is often removed from shots these days.

    Ha, yes. Cloning a dozen things out of an image is also fine, but inserting one thing is evil 🤷‍♂️
  • Replied in Why BIF?
    One of my favourite aspects of it is not Birds per se but the aerodynamics of flight. I find the gliding, swooping, diving and ascending interesting in itself. Mind you, I did try photographing ...
  • 300mm 2.8 has entered the chat
  • Replied in Why BIF?
    100% And anyway, there are millions of fashion shots, portraits, landscapes, cars etc etc etc If your criteria is that you should be shooting things that haven't been shot before you may as well ...
  • Replied in Why Not?
    Wonderful photos. Especially love the last two.
  • Replied in Why BIF?
    1. The thrill of the chase. They are very difficult shots to get, but a shot of a Swift flying 10cm above a river and taking insects from the air is worth a hundred shots of the same bird sitting ...
  • It's still a cool shot, but Nakamura's shot is incredibly moving. This is, for me, not.
  • 1. Don't like EVFs particularly 2. Autofocus not up to D850 for BiF 3. Battery life still barely ok 4. Ergonomics not as good 5. I definitely think the Z6/Z7 were rushed to market. Should have ...
  • Camping this weekend and lots of morons with drones were flying them over people’s tents and invading their privacy. I’d like to see them much more tightly controlled
  • I don’t have answers to your questions but this photo looks extremely staged. Go Nskamura’s Joseph Varon shot is far superior imo
