There is something magical and nostalgic when you go to a trip in your mind and remembering the film photography days. Something about it just triggers pure joy - at least for me.

On article 2017 iPhone Photography Award Winners Announced (185 comments in total)

Yesterday I saw a stunning misty landscape view, I tried to capture the photo using my iPhone 5S but the dynamic range was just too low for it. I then grabbed my friend's iPhone 7 and oh boy that camera was able to capture that moment with all its glory, the dynamic range is just insane.

Albert Drybrae: Critics, critics, critics. Come on guys, he designed and printed the body of a camera. How many of you can do that? Instead of appreciating the man's creativity and and hard work, you criticize the color he made the camera. We all know he didn't 3D print the lens and processor but please appreciate what he did do.

I thought it's a film camera, no?

In reply to:

snowrunner: There are some really nice photos among Flickr's selection. I just wish people would use less post processing. I prefer a more natural look.

If the subject is processed in real life, does it matter?

D200_4me: I was wondering when it would happen...

me as well. Software can emulate partially what their technology does, and consumers don't need such flexibility that their product offer, at least not most of them, and that means less sales.

Smart move, but they should have predicted it a few years back in my opinion.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

I think black more compliments images because the colors pop out better compared to a lighter background. You need to maintain a consistent design of your other websites (connect), but it doesn't mean that the darker layout need to be changed. Giving an option for the user to choose the layout and save it in a cookie is a good experience.

With a light background, the images just lose their definition and that's why I prefer watching images on a dark background. Shadows and rounded corners should be avoided, because it doesn't follow the latest flat design trend, and in my opinion the flat design also helps to emphasize other elements in the page that deserve more attention.

Good luck and thanks for giving us that option.

On photo In the Dark in the Black & White Photo of the Week #21 challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

CptAmerica: not a fan of photos that are more photoshop, than photograph.

I think that some photographers need to understand that we live in a digital age. Photoshop is a tool that photographers can use for post production, like Ansel Adams took his own photos to the lab and "edit" them as well (applying stronger contrast, etc.).

You know that people can edit images in a way that you can never know, some do really professional with Photoshop. So what you are actually saying is that the photo is "good" depends on your ability to detect whether it was done in Photoshop or not. But if you can't detect it, is it any better or worse? Is it better to use photographic accessories to enhance the image, is that OK for the image to look less Photoshopy? And if so, what's the differences, because these are not software "tools", so that's allowed?

I don't understand what's wrong with Photoshop. If Photoshop an app in the camera was it OK. There are many camera settings that affect how the pictures turns out to be, and that's OK, so what's the problem with image settings using Photoshop. And if the percentage matters, how can you measure it?

I think the image looks just gorgeous, it triggers emotion, at least for me, and I just adore it. Amazing image/photo.
