I can not believe that I just watched this. It seems that I have too much time to kill too.

On photo Sagrada Familia in the Your City - Interior of a monumental building challenge (17 comments in total)

Fantastic shot! I was there almost ten years ago but not able to see the shot. Can't remember that it was so colorful. Maybe they just painted it in the recent past.

A truly wonderful image!

Ok. High ISO looks rubbish and low ISO is compromised too. What's next: Poor AF in low light?

Beautiful. I also love to use 35mm for portraits. Rishi is a very good photographer. The images he produced are just beautiful. A true inspiration.

On photo Herring Gull sneaks into Puffin Picture in the animal photo bombs challenge (10 comments in total)

"Great Shot!"
"It's supposed to be without the seagull in the frame."
"In that case not so good."

Just joking. My favorite dialog from "The Lone Ranger".

A truly great capture!

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)

Wow. 200 frame RAW buffer. It will take you some time to find the one best shot out of the 7.000 you took during the first half time of your daughters soccer game. ;)

Seriously: This camera and the new 200-500 lens makes me want to dive into bird photography again. We live in amazing times. What a camera! The holy grail for amateur wildlife photographers.

10 years ago I would haven given everything for a compact camera with those specs. Today not so much.

In reply to:

Jerry Pruce: The more pixels the better. But why does it have to be so expensive? If it was around $3000 I'd buy it. And I wish they would make it smaller. Maybe in the next year or two, they'll come out with the 200mp version and the 100mp one will drop in price more to my liking. I think their shooting themselves in the foot by not offering the camera at an affordable price for the masses.

Yeah. iPhone size and $800 and a lot more people would buy it. No idea why it has to be so big and why it must be so expensive. I guess those companies are all gangsters. ;)

Joachim Gerstl: Beautiful images. dpreview finally gave the lens to a photographer. Really beautiful and a good example what this lens can do.

If that's the case: Take your time! Really great portraits - Congrats!

ElviraGrey: The one with the cranes(?) and the mountain layers in the background is incredible. Nice set.

1. It's a spoonbill not a crane.
2. He missed to copy the reflections too.
3. it should be clearly marked as a product of photoshop.

Except that it is only one spoonbill that has been captured in his flight and than copied back into the picture.

The Half Dome looks impressive but it is hardly the top of the world.

So it can carry an apple too. Impressive!

I understand that we all hate to change lenses but this is ridiculous. Next sensor or AF innovation and you have to trow away all your lenses instead of just replacing your camera.
Just to be different is not enough.
