fyngyrz: Instagram doesn't let users post from the desktop. It's pretty useless for anyone using a decent camera until/unless they change that. There are sites out there that support both, and they're going to get my patronage for that very reason.

@lickity split, "huge pain" is a matter of personal perspective, I think. Perfectly legit from yours and I respect that, but for me, the extra 1-2 minutes and minor effort needed to undertake my workaround doesn't remotely qualify as a "huge pain" but rather a "small inconvenience". I think given IG's popularity there won't be a great push from their end to start allowing direct uploading from a desktop or laptop anytime soon, but I could be wrong. But if the principle of it offends you enough, by all means stay away--that's your right of choice. Besides, there are plenty of other platforms such as FB, Flickr, Google+, Viewbug, Redbubble, Fine Art America, Deviant Art, etc., that don't restrict uploading to just mobile devices.

Email your photo to yourself. View message and download image to your phone. Upload to IG. Not convenient, but not *too* inconvenient.

Slapstick Noir: Absolutely marvelous camera! It destroys all them Nikons, Sony's and whatever!

Don't listen to all those arm chair pixel peepers. All they know is complaining about everything.

6DmkII is a superb modern camera with amazing flippy things all over it, so shut ya all!
It's the photographer, not the camera!
What is this "DR" anyway? A horse food additive?
It's the photographer, not the camera!
When in outskirts of Berlin in '45 we didn't even have auto focus, but we still won the war!
It's the photographer, not the camera!
All those spoiled new age sissies and their image quality.
It's the photographer, not the camera!

Peter Bendheim: In the last week in the New York Times, there were two great photographic articles; one on an odyssey through the desolate Australian Outback, and one on leading photographers who were given a poem, the emotions of which they had to translate into personal images. Both were wonderful articles (which you should look at if you can)
.
So, seriously DPR, is the news out there in the industry in such short supply, that the leading digital photography website can only come up with something that looks like a click-baiting Facebook post?

And yes, I do have a sense of humour, but this kind of content is everywhere across the internet. One doesn't need to look very far to find it.

Seriously. My browsing routine is nowadays is this: See vapid clickbait article on PetaPixel. Wait three days. See same rehashed story on DPReview.

KevinG: Hi Perez, a great shot indeed!! I never tire of sunrise or sunset shots. Just wondering if you needed to use split ND's or blending shots to get this. It's great regardless!!

Doctors, too. Million Dollar Baby was pretty good...up until Hillary Swank started talking in the ventilator. It became unwatchable at that point...

mandm: Shooting for 50 years, I'm now a retired pro using a Nikon Df & D750, if I were starting today, I would likely go with Sony full frame and this lens is just one more reason why and Sony will have more lenses to come.

12-24mm @ 565g vs 14-24mm @ 1000g. I think he meant what he said.

pdxtrojan: Cool phenomenon, but that's a rather poorly balanced and composed image.

Okay...

Or the photographer, who could rotate his camera to the right a bit.

DoggoLingo's funny and catchy the same way pig Latin is. In other words, it's neither.

Kudos, NG! Keep the cull going!

"And then it happened."

I had to read the text to figure out what exactly "it" was. Wasn't quite sure just from looking at the photos. :/

In reply to:

alberto_b: Not impressed - I also voted the image in the original challenge -, since it's heavily oversaturated.

You voted for this image twice, once here and again in the original challenge, even though it's oversaturated and you were not impressed?

Rob: Professional sites need to stop mispronouncing bokeh. It has always been "bo-KAY." "Bo-KA" was a mispronunciation by those who were ignorant of the term's origin and somehow it caught on.

You think Sony misprinted 135mm as 100mm five times in their own press release?
