  • That box looks like it was torn apart by dogs who thought there was food inside. Either that or you get very excited when you receive a delivery from B&H.  :-D
  • Presumably the camera was being fooled by the black background surrounding the moon, causing the image to be adjusted so it was too bright. One possibility is that you had the camera in an auto ...
  • The best way to prevent this from happening again is to keep a cap on the lens when you aren't using it. If you don't have an original cap you can buy a cheap generic cap of the right diameter. If ...
  • I generally don't like extremely exaggerated colors. Of course there are times when they're appropriate, but most of the time I prefer more naturalistic colors. I don't know if that's a holdover ...
  • I would expect the damage to be done with a lens mounted, since a lens will focus the laser beam down to a tiny spot on the sensor. Without a lens the beam will probably be too broad to do any ...
  • One way to deal with this is to wear contacts that correct your vision for distance viewing, including any astigmatism you may have. Then you can wear over the counter reading glasses over your ...
  • I suggest that you seriously consider buying a ready-made computer from one of the big manufacturers. When it comes to budget computers it's very unlikely you'll be able to beat their prices by ...
  • I think this may just be a result of the fact that dark parts of a picture will have color noise in them. The zoomed-in image displayed on the back of your camera looks like it has been brightened ...
  • Ouch, that looks pretty bad. One scratch on a lens usually doesn't cause problems, but that looks like lots of scratches covering a significant portion of the front element. Have you tried taking ...
  • Can you use another camera to take a picture of the image displayed on the back of the camera with the green blotches showing?
  • Right. I'm suggesting the use of a smaller aperture (such as f/11 for instance) to get more depth of field.
  • I think you have 3 main problems going on here. First, as Mark B. pointed out, the shutter speed was too slow to freeze the motion of the subjects. Second, it looks like you may not have been ...
  • To me it looks like the first picture is of a TV show or movie being filmed, so the old cars are probably props. My guess is the picture was taken with a cell phone camera.
  • Some flashes have zoom settings that control how broadly the light is spread. At a setting of 35 mm the flash will evenly cover the angle of view captured by a 35 mm lens on a full frame camera, ...
  • People have been getting fooled by photos since photography was invented. That's true even for photos that in retrospect are very obviously fake. If anything it was easier to fool people in the ...
  • You could try putting a translucent white piece of plastic over the tablet to diffuse the light so you won't be able to see the pixels. The plastic needs to be smooth so a texture won't show up in ...
  • I think darkening the sunlit grassy spot a bit prevents it from competing with the figure. I see what you mean about that making the image a bit dull, so I also adjusted the Lights and Shadows a ...
  • It looks like the sails were white, so you could use them to set the white balance when you process the image by clicking the white balance eye dropper on them (although if the sails were actually ...
  • I like the second picture a lot, but I think it suffers from the same problem as the first picture: there are two points in the picture that attract the viewer's attention, so they are in conflict ...
  • You might try darkening that bright spot right in the middle of the picture just a bit because it's somewhat distracting. If I put my finger over that spot I think the picture looks better. But ...
