  • Looks fantastic. Unfortunately, it also looks quite a bit tilted. At least the lake gives that impression. Isn't there an electronic gauge in the sd Quattro? And how long did you have to wait for ...
  • Replied in Good timing....
    Thank you Ines and Mark, for this post. The picture is great. More important, I once again visited your web pages. They clearly demonstrate that you have a very good vision and a great technique ...
  • There are not so much trolls in our group, I think. There are more strong characters...
  • Right, this one I forgot.... :-D BTW, depending on one's point of view, I will find myself categorized into one of these groups.
  • We have: The Dreamer The Pedant The Smartass The Intellectual The Sarcast The Fanboy The Naysayer The Know-it-all The Prophet The Do-gooder The Naive The Expert The Non-expert The "I don't get it" ...
  • Replied in My list:
    It is all about technology. It was about the density of transistors on an integrated circuit. Can it be more technological? I think you are right. It is still about the best IQ for photographers ...
  • Replied in My list:
    How can you predict that? From what you have seen so far in pictures? From theoretical considerations? From what you have read about the Foveon design approach? Looking at pictures, I see problems. ...
  • I do believe in these numbers. They can be measured and are real. But only if there is a good contrast in luminance. This can be resolved at the pixel level of the top layer of the Quattro. If the ...
  • I do understand that there are reasons to go into the direction of chroma subsampling. And, honestly, if you don't look at pictures at pixel level, most of the shortcomings of chroma subsampling ...
  • Sent you a PM.
  • I think it is not bad at all. And I think it works better in color. I love BW but in this case, the color adds something to it which is lost in the BW conversion. I like it !
  • Don't you think that from the pixel-peepers point of view, all Quattro settings are worse than the Merrill output? It is either watercolored or noisy. I am surprised that you tried luminance NR. ...
  • Thnx, I think you are right!
  • I used 0.8 Fill Light. More than I typically do but the pricture needed it. I could/should have used some exposure compensation while taking the shot but didn't want to blow the sky.
  • As it turnes out, the German Tornado is a Russian MIG-23. Obviously, a left-over from the German Democratic Republic.
  • Created photo thread Some jets - Out of service
    Some pictures from the Technikmuseum in Speyer, Germany. SD1, 18-35 and 50-500. A Russian MIG 21 A German Tornado The backside of a US F-4 Phantom I don't know what it is, maybe a Sabre ? But the ...
  • Replied in kind of funny
    You are telling us that the quality of your monitor shows you much more information to differentiate between pictures from different cameras. And you post a lot of pictures which your audience ...
  • Reading the posts in this thread reminds me that I seem to be an atypical photographer. I assume, I am too much of a hobby photographer.... (this is not only related to this thread but to a lot ...
  • I think you are right Larry, the earlier pictures are more clean. Full size, there is no real difference, on pixel level the combination of noise reduction, sharpening and contrast makes them look ...
  • Hi Larry, I had a look at your pictures which are well done. I am not a pixel peper but I openend them in original size and 1:1 representation. My first thought was: oops, the typical strange ...
