On photo Annapurna Massiv, Nepal in the mountain panorama challenge (1 comment in total)

Well, the spelling is "massif", but I can't find a way of how to change it. Shame on me.

Valid question. Even the 1.5 is hard to comprehend.

By standing on the Shoulders of Giants: It's hard to appreciate this on (the tiny screen of) my device. Perhaps it looks great on a gallery wall.

The original is 13934x4001. Not good for tiny devices, but I'm sure it won't see no gallery walls, too.

On article Pentax K-1 Mark II: What you need to know (461 comments in total)

Henry49: I'm a Nikon FF user. Previously started in photography using an APS-C Pentax. I switched to Nikon when was launched the D800. I was impressed by the performance of the pixel shift technology on the K-1 having downloaded their sample images (improvement of resolution-color reproduction and almost digital MF feeling). Only issue: you can use only with static objects and shooting with a tripod. A big snag. I think this hand-held pixel shift technology on the Mark II can be the game changer. If it works fine, puts them ahead, otherwise they will continue to lag behind the big names. Very curious to read the first reviews with real images.

Well, pixel shift is great, but doesn't like movement. The dynamic mode makes it possible to shoot hand-held, but there still should not be any movement within the scene. I'm almost sure this new mode cannot be used with shorter exposure times, and it won't always work. You've got to shake it properly. All it takes is a strong coffee or no alcohol for a longer time. I'm happy with the K-1 as it is. It comes down to how successful this dynamic mode works, and maybe the additional f-stop from the afterburner unit is more practical in real life. We'll see.

By standing on the Shoulders of Giants: It’s bland looking.

Yes, you are right. OTOH, this shot was taken late in the evening and it just looked like it does. The good thing about the Arctic is the long evening (if not even the night) and the opportunities it offers for photography in softer light. However, a bit of warm light from the downing sun would have improved this shot.
