I'm stunned at this news! This has become on of my go-to sites for gear reviews and comparisons and for keeping up with the latest trends. Maybe someone else could but DPReview and make a go of it? (Hey Elon - want another business?)

Basil Fawlty: I have put my money down on this project with the understanding that with any crowdfunding project there is a risk.

Only reason I feel a little more confident with this project is the simple fact that I have been following Michael for several years and have several of his outstanding tutorial courses.

I’ve had some interactions with Michael and feel he’s a straight shooter. Looking forward to getting my hands on these filters.

You lucky duck! I can't wait to get mine. Really looking forward to them.

Wow, that is impressive. Did you do any denoise processing? If so, what program?

aris14: I think I like these Sirui guys.

I have a Sirui Carbon Fiber tri-pod and ball head and have been quite impressed with it. Good value for the price.

Roland Karlsson: I am very confused by the last image with the dramatic sky. The reflection in the lake is different. Totally different. Why did the AI make such an image. Not a very brilliant AI IMHO.

And add mountains to a field of sunflowers? Whats the meaning of that? There are lots of nice images out there, and here is one more, that I have not made. Fun maybe, but what shall you use the image for?

Adding clouds in the blue sky behind the balloons and cloning in yet one more balloon? Depends what your target is. It might be a decoration on an invitation card. Just fine! But as a picture in an album. Fake!

One question here, the clouds and the mountain range, where do they come from? Are the built in to the tool? Or have the photographer taken them?

A thought. Is this a good method to make surrealistic images. E.g. where you use a brick wall as sky, or the lake is burning. Such images are cool, and obviously fake. If such images look realistic, then I like it.

At first glance it looks good, but when. you look at it closer, you're right - the reflected sky is very different than the sky being reflected.

The equivalent aperture (f8 at 24mm) and quickly getting smaller from there is not impressive.
