  • I use Paintshop Pro x8 - Monty
  • Andrew - As usual a nice mixed set - The Candy Shoppe stands out for me - Perhaps a crop to the edges of the two outer white frames to get rid of the person on the right - The baseball shots are ...
  • Of course you are wrong - I take both jpeg and raw - When I put my card into a reader and download the results I get both jpeg and raw in my file - If the raw file is not out of camera where does ...
  • Many thanks to all who took the time to reply - Very informative and detailed info - Monty
  • Created discussion thread JPEG vs RAW - SOOC
    With my EM5Mkii I have been noticing that the JPEGs are sharper then the RAW files without any pp - Straight out of the camera the RAW files seem noticeably softer - It is the same with both the ...
  • I treated myself to the Lumix 35-100 2.8 - For what I shoot I could not be happier with this lens and attach a shot of one of my favourite subjects as an example - On my E-M5ii it is just ...
  • Replied in Various, Again
    Andrew as usual a fine job with the various shots - I find the picture of the horse the winner in this round - It is funny but before reading any comments and just on first viewing these shots I ...
  • It has kindly been pointed out that I have erroneously mislabeled the heading on the original post to this thread as shown below- The proper heading is on this post - Wed C&C "No Theme" Thread ...
  • I can't say much that hasn't been said - But the flying bird is very nicely outlined in this shot- Are these Great Blue Herons? Monty
  • Replied in Bondi Beach
    Certainly different and as usual I really don't know how to approach your postings - However this one makes me ponder - What happened to the  guy in the top photo that is missing in the second? ...
  • Replied in Kayak
    Well done - While I prefer the first one showing exactly what the scene is all about the second with the pier reflected is interesting - The second one I think would not have worked without the ...
  • Replied in Looking Out.
    This appears to be taken from some kind of museum - What appeals to me are the 'bars' in all the views in the top row from the round railing on the left to the designs in the other two windows - ...
  • Not too bad from a phone but one can only imagine the possibilities with your 'real' camera equipment- Monty
  • EnRoute from NC - Expected to be home earlier but delays and flight changes means I won't be back at my computer until tomorrow - I only have basic pp so I am attaching a pic I took at a ...

  • Welcome to the Wednesday Comments and Critique (No Theme) thread! We are continuing the great tradition of this C&C thread because we are convinced that looking at and talking about images is vital ...
  • Replied in Open carry
    Different take on a topical subject - Great eye for a pic out of the ordinary - Monty
  • Replied in Future
    Mike - You have hit on what I was trying to convey in my take of the picture - Roel having posted it in context with the others  makes far more sense when viewing now - Monty
  • Replied in Green
    To me shots like this do not have to be perfect - The subject and pose make this shot as you may not come across this creature in this position again and so make it a keeper - Monty
