photofisher: I'm more interested in what UWA prime Vlad is using on his Oly and what he thinks of it.

Good eye! I have indeed been playing around with the 75mm f1.8, the 25mm f1.8, the 8mm f1.8 fisheye, and more recently the 25mm f1.2 (what can I say, I'm like a kid in a candy store after joining DPReview). Overall I'm very impressed with the image quality and overall performance of the system, especially considering the small size. My favorite has been the fisheye. Coming from shooting full frame, I'm just amazed at how wide and fast you can get with a setup that small. On the other hand, I didn't like the 75mm f1.8 as much as I thought I would. I really like the 135mm focal length on FF, but the smaller sensor on the Olympus just doesn't produce that shallow DOF and creamy bokeh that I'm used to with the Canon 135L.

davev8: Vladimir Bobov i like this photo ...the man standing makes it

Thank you! I think it's interesting that no matter how small a human subject is in a composition, we are instinctively drawn to it.

CO Boy: Whenever I try to vote I get the error message that says “There was a problem while recording your vote: invalid request.” Anyone else having that problem?

Yes, we are aware of the voting issue that is affecting our Safari/iOS users (thanks to everyone who reported it). We believe that we know what's causing the issue, and are actively working on a fix. It should be resolved within the next couple of days. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

If it took you 15 shots to get it, you got off easy! Nice work, great use of panning!

In reply to:

boyzo: I use the Lightroom FB plugin to upload images will I get the Hi RES adavntages ??

The LR plugin (both the in-box and Jeffrey Friedl's excellent plugin) has a resize option. I'm not sure what happens if resize is off - I've set it to the maxiumum Facebook dimensions as they progressed (604, then 720, then 960, now 2048). It's a bit annoying that my old photos are stuck at their smaller sizes...

On article Canon EOS 5D Mark III studio samples published (287 comments in total)
In reply to:

russbarnes: Where is this 5DMKIII "low light king" blah blah blah? So much for lower resolution being cleaner - it's obvious the sensor is old tech now and shows nominal to no improvement over the MKII. No comparison to the D800 - it's light years ahead. The only improvement is JPEG noise reduction, whoopee doo, problem is most serious photographers don't use JPEG. MKII owners should be very happy indeed because there's nothing to upgrade for here at that ridiculous premium...in fact I'm expecting the MKII price to start increasing across the board because it looks like a bargain now.

In RAW, at 12800 and up, do you honestly not see a difference?

As a Canon shooter who was somewhat dismayed by the price of the 5d3, I must say I find this news absolutely hilarious!

On article Photo Tip: Left of Center (44 comments in total)

Good advice overall, but the big picture isn't about some rule or even the golden section, but about understanding the elements of visual design and their relationships. As of late, I'm finally breaking free from the rule of thirds. After being told repeatedly to place the subject of interest on the intersections of the thirds, that is how I would compose and crop my images. Now that I'm more confident, I can allow myself to break the rules, which often results in a more natural, less contrived image.

On photo Snow Boarder in the Leave room for movement challenge (5 comments in total)

Great! I know from experience these are tough shots due to natural lack of contrast in the scene.
@klas77: this kind of effect is often done in Photoshop with Radial Blur in Zoom mode.
