Shunda77: This will be recorded in the history books as one of the reasons the West was lost.
Maybe Google could hire 'Naruto' to replace James Damore as part of increasing diversity, just keep him away from a camera.
Wait... is 'Naruto' a male? if so that may not work out so well, the last thing Google needs right now is a patriarchal primate going apesh!t

Trump is our last best hope on the war against western civilization. Amazing how many people miss this.

Clara May: This beautiful image would not be possible without Slater setting up his camera with the greatest care and skill. How many tries before he got to this result? To say that he does not own the copyright is plain lunacy.

Common sense shows you are right but the world is going crazy.

Albert Valentino: PETA is less about a group of people protecting animals and more about a group of people that hate humans. Fighting on behalf of the animal is simply the vehicle/excuse to lash out at humans. 🙈🙉🙊

Of course what you say makes sense. But Sadly, judges sometimes have their own agenda.

Your story about your former PETA friend is not that uncommon. My 'generalized' comment was to this point. The motives of some of the these PETA people is similar to many that take on a cause in the sense that the cause is just a vehicle to manifest some ambition, usually power. If the cause itself dissolves, they simply find another one to run with.

In the article above, they champion a happy monkey but what is in it for the monkey. Nothing. Did the monkey have fun? Looks like it. Was the monkey harmed? No. So where is the need to destroy the man that put his equipment at risk and ultimately got a picture that brought a smile to many humans face? No harm done. That is, until PETA got involved.

The samples shots of the macro/closeup lens should be filled with closeup shots to see what it can do for this type of genre. But is doesn't ☚ī¸

Will B Milner: Thanks everyone! Yes, this is a composite, this sort of image just isn't possible with current technology.

The foreground is 5 shots focus stacked at f/8-11 | ISO 64 | various shutter speeds. The Milkyway is a stack of 6 x f/4.5 | ISO 800 | 180 seconds taken on a sidereal tracker, giving a total exposure time of 18 mins. Raw corrected in Lightroom, stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and processed in Photoshop

Your hard work really paid off

CaPi: I like what I see her.. I am sure it is a great lense.
I cant help but wonder if I would use an m4/3 for tripod or landscape work.
I would see this system to be highly portable and to have amongts many things the potential for lots of zoom reach when needed.
We all travel differently, I'm sure.

I moved over to m43 late last year and never looked back. It is the most versatile system out there and fits my needs and wants, which are mostly natural photography related, wonderfully. Small, relatively light, weather sealed, long, wide, macro, stabilized.... If one lusts for paper thin bokeh and macho megapixel count, then look elsewhere

Gnostos Agnostos: For full frame camera there is the Tamron 28-300mm but for crop frame camera the 18-400mm is really amazing. Amateurs love zoom lenses and don't won't to spent a lot. I will buy it in the near future when it will be available for a-mount.

Pros love a good zoom lens as well. They are not just for amateurs

I never bought into the 1" sensor but feel bad for those Nikon shooters that did' and invested in a good lens set. How is it that the new kid on the block, Sony, can do so well with this sensor and Nikon cannot. Plus, they are grabbing strong market share with FF.

How the mighty have fallen
