In reply to:

Tan68: The image was exported to PS to adjust left slider on levels to 14, if I understand correctly. It is not possible to adjust blackpoint on levels in LR ?

Yes. You can adjust both Black and White points in LR, but the text says the main editing was done in ACR, so maybe that's different?

Seems like something you could do a lot more easily with digital layers and save loads of printing paper.

(unknown member): The music is annoying.

Music is only annoying if you don't like it.
IF you don't like it - Turn it down.

In reply to:

Lee Jay: Can someone explain number 6 to me? I'm having a hard time understanding that one.

Getting hit by a breaking is a little like getting hit by a slow-moving car. It hurts just to look at these because I know what came next.

Yes, a little too much Photoshopping in number 6.

I suspect that many are Photoshop composites, although very well done.
I saw some photos like this taken in the UK by someone who is obviously copying Clark Little's techniques. These were clearly Photoshop composites, since some of the wave angles were impossible in relation to the background

AbrasiveReducer: Great video but it's amazing how this has grown from something that was easier to use than Photoshop, to what it is now.

It's a completely different program, with a different application to PS.

jazzphotog1: Video looks very useful. Physical problem here...must be able to watch the video in 10-15' intervals. Can it be downloaded & saved to my computer (Mac)?

There are lots of YouTube downloader programs available.

I don't use Mac, but here a couple of many:

On article Site Update: notifications (121 comments in total)

Notifications are displayed most recent first.
If they all relate to an ongoing thread it would be more useful to have the oldest displayed first, otherwise you finish up reading the thread backwards, i.e from the bottom up, rather than from the top down.
Please can we have the notifications displayed with the oldest at the top, the same way the forums are displayed?

Artistico: It trolls the web? Really? I thought there was enough trolling just in the DPReview forums for starters. Why would we want anyone else to start trolling for us as well? =P

The word is "trawling" not trolling, read the second sentence of the description.

A Wake Up call to all those that think the "Cloud" is invulnerable to disruption.
How long before this happens to all those "cloud" archives of images that people have uploaded, think are safe, and have no off-line backup for?
The "cloud" unlike it's namesake, is not something that floats around in space, it's just an array of physical hard drives on some server somewhere, and as such, however well protected, is vulnerable to disruption from electrical failure, fire, flood, earthquakes and any number of other external influences.
Those that rely on it entirely for their storage are foolish.

On article Manfrotto 190 Series Carbon Fiber Tripod Review (73 comments in total)

I've been told that a lot of the lower end carbon fiber tripods are actually thin aluminium tubes clad in carbon fiber.
The only company that uses pure carbon for their legs is Gitzo, which is reflected in their prices.
Is that true in this case?

A bit like a car manufacturer saying you can only use "GoodStone" tires when your originals wear out...

On article Canon EOS 70D Review (684 comments in total)

Conclusion - Cons:

"◾HDR mode unavailable if Raw is active (rather than disengaging Raw)"

Is there ANY camera that allows HDR raw shooting? (than than by multiple bracketed exposures).
HDR is an output image (jpg) function.
This can hardly be a "Con" since all cameras behave the same way.

Walsh_uk: Wish it had a fuji sensor then it would be perfect..

For me the lack of a phone is a deal breaker.

Everything that's posted here is someone's opinion, further qualification is unnecessary.

Photomonkey: Sure is satisfying to see such spirited discussions about art. Thought no one cared. ;)

No, it's the imbecile who actually paid that amount.

On article Complete our survey for the chance to win an iPad (73 comments in total)

I agree with Simon65 (below) about question 60.
I left it blank because I don't use any of the options, so I have lied in order to post the result.

The whole thing seems like an extremely long-winded way to post an ad for a photo show.

As long as they keep the "ignore" button.

slncezgsi: What is going to be left from Kodak when the film devision will be gone - and much more import - who will buy it? What is going to happen to those great products like Tri-X, Portra or Ektar?

C'mon Kodak!

Kodak may have image sensors on Mars, but that's a very small market at present.
