Derek Dean: I find it interesting that so many folks on DPR feel that increasing the saturation in an image (if that indeed was done) is such a bad thing, as if the only permissible way to present an image is to make it look exactly like it did when the image was taken.

I've always felt that photography was about trying to share a "feeling" that the photographer experienced when the image was taken, and that whatever the photographer decides needs to done in post to help get that feeling across is fine.

I really like this image and feel it does a good job of expressing the idea of "the golden hour".

And don't get me wrong, I enjoy realistic photos as well, but I don't think that's the only way they need to be presented.

Well said. Even though mainly I take realistic photos I don't mind exaggerating few. I don't bother others editing as their taste as long as it is enjoyable as a piece of artwork to my taste.

ms18: As a prime only shooter I found canon APS-C useless only after purchasing it. What canon has to do is provide some dedicated prime lenses for APS-C. I'm really happy with recently released EF=S 24mm STM. What about another 55mm f/1.4 APC lens which can focus faster?

At least now canon make entry level cameras with nice AF so they can be used for wild life which is the only thing canon APS-C are used by Pros any way unless they make APS-C only general primes.

Yes @tkbslc That's my point. Also most canon old lenses are not sharp wide open. But opening wide is very important for smaller sensor. I planned to switch 5d mk iv. But then i wasn't shooting much wildlife or sports So planning to go with Sony because any way i have to buy new lenses. Mirror less are lightweight, Less intimating for people also their focusing on people are far better than DSLR with electronic aids. Even in Sony APS-C is some thing I don't like. Only APS-C camera I will recommend for who use primes in general photography is Fuji X. Yet you can buy Sony fullframe and lenses (may be legacy) for the same price

I wish Sigma make dedicated primes for APS-C sensors.

ms18: Time to dump canon.

My problem with Sony was lens selection now they seems to be looking in to it.

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: I'd like to know how you're going to verify that the entry submitted was actually taken while using a tripod. Let me guess . . . you're going to trust the honesty of the Dpreview member. Ha, ha, ha! Oh that's rich!

And the winning photo was taken with 1/1000 sec shutter.

In reply to:

ms18: Actually in an ILC The body only does not matter. I would love if these reviews include some body lens combos. Again I'm a prime lens person I hate zoom lenses. When all these taken to account most rankings and other's guidance will never fill some one's personal requirement unless every camera uses same Lens mount.

Thank you !!
