About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

This is where bokeh with the angles actually compliments the gems. :D Nice.

It's rather interesting for me to see sites from BBC news, where they don't have the commenting system available. I actually rather like it, compared to other places like Yahoo news, or any U.S. news sites.

Maybe it's just me, but hearing ridiculous opinions gets on my nerves. Hopefully mine wasn't too ridiculous. :P

CeleryBeats: I did something similar a while back! But more with a panning like approach. Bit harder to nail. You can check it on my website if you like

Those are some pretty cool images and effects, with the panning.

I like it!
EDIT: I can't just say this and let it be, seeing as how much negative feedback there is. I, myself, am not into modern "art", with all that paint spatter, squares of color, blends of two colors, etc.

But in this case, I think it's a nice experiment, to play with the blur. I like the contrast it creates between the sharpness of the subjects in the background, and the veil of soft blur in the foreground. I applaud this photographer for trying it out.

The "Thich Quang Duc's self-immolation (1968)" looks very realistic. Great work there.

I confess that I'm not familiar with 11 at all - can someone enlighten me?

@ Paul Amyes, don't you mean the fixer varnish for the positive print peeled off from the Polaroid negative? That stuff stunk too.

If anyone has not seen it yet, see "Carl Sagan - Pale Blue Dot" on youtube. It is inspiring (link below):

Speaking of addicts, if there are any photo addicts who would like to get rid of their drug, I wouldn't mind getting the variety called, "Nikon D800". :D

ptodd: Smartphones can use their accelerometer / gyroscope as a spirit level.

This was meant as a reply to Ron Co, but for some reason I can't seem to get the appropriate button to come up on my mobile device...

That is so crazy how smart that is, to use the accelerometer/gyroscopes to level. Crazy good!

webrunner5: Oh come on. How good of quality do you need for a newspaper spread? And I remember there was life before zoom lenses. That is why people have legs and feet. Plenty of people willing to take their place is they balk about it. Plus like has been said who even reads a newspaper anymore?

I think it may well end up a positive for them. More up close and personal photos and video. Like it or not Smartphones are going to be the death of Canon and Nikon down the road. They will end up like Leica selling Leather covered zebra skin cameras for like 10k a pop to 200 rich dentists.

Good luck getting up close and personal to a wild fire.

sagebrushfire: Honestly I think it's worse to give someone something that's 60%+ painted and it shows, especially in the picture where the baby's foot mysteriously just cuts off and where the little girl looks like an angry swamp monster. It would be better to just use the picture as a slight reference and make a nice looking painting based off it.

The baby's foot which you state is "cut off", looks to just be hidden by the person's black outfit/body.
