On challenge Reflections in Glass (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

embie: Hi,
lots of office buildings have kind of mirror glass, but, it is see through, is this allowed ?

Yes. If you can see through it, it's good to go. We must assume that any mirrored office windows are see through for sure.

Cheers
B&M

On challenge Neon Signs (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

catastrophe: What is your definition of a neon sign. I think that it is strictly a sign made of a glass tube or tubes bent into a shape that forms the sign, filled with neon and glows a red/orange colour. It is often extended to tubes filled with other rare gasses which provide other colours. Does this challenge extend the definition to any illuminated sign or building?

You have it right. Gas filed glass tubes bent into a shape that forms the sign.

This image is officially disqualified. For whatever reason, there are problems in disqualifying it. So if it isn't removed, I ask all to not vote on the image.

Thank you

On challenge Angered Subjects (Street Photography) (5 comments in total)

I mentioned below that I would accept animals in reference to :individuals." I'm sorry once again, but I have been put in my place during this challenge that it should, and rightly so, be in reference to people only. I'm very sorry for the confusion.

On challenge Angered Subjects (Street Photography) (5 comments in total)

I must apologize. The challenge was meant to be in regards people being angry. So by saying subjects/individuals, some have taken it also to refer to animals. I can't argue that, so I will have to let it go. For myself, I refer to the person I take a photo of as a subject and mentioned at times as an individual. It just never crossed my mind there might be confusion with this.

In reply to:

tko: Encouraging photographers to make their unknowing subjects angry? What could go wrong?

I'm not encouraging photographers to make their unknown subjects angry. All I'm trying to portray with the challenge is that there must be cases where people are angered at having their photo taken by strangers. I have been myself at times.

Really! Is this necessary? Why don't we just hand our cameras to close friends and ask them to go out and take some photos for us. Part of the joy of being a photographer is to analyze a shot and chose the settings that we like based on our experience.

On article Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range (666 comments in total)

More speed, less dynamic range. OK, I am no expert on all of this techno mumbo jumbo, but really. More speed at the sacrifice of DR? Like I said, I am no expert, but isn't the improvement of DR a worthy conquest in digital photography? To try and come closer to what the eye sees is, to me at least, a worth while goal, not in the other direction. Maybe I'm missing something here. Can someone clarify what they are trying to do?

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (828 comments in total)

I'm glad to see that film cameras are alive and well. I cut my teeth, so to speak, on a Minolta SRT-101 back in the 70's. I miss that camera. I've been trying off and on to find one in decent condition, but so far no luck. Even if I don't use it, it would be nice to display in a cabinet.

In reply to:

Bangers and Mash: This is absolute nonsense. How many photos have we seen of people posing on streets. No cars around mind you. Has anyone reacted in this way about street shots. Perhaps, living in this politically correct society, this is because it is a woman standing on the tracks. Maybe, and I'm just guessing now, if it was a man standing on the tracks, would anything be said. By the way, I think the photo is awesome.

Teila. Thank you. I could not have said it better myself.

loadofcobblers: The silver or black to shoot shy people?

Don, I never thought about it that way. Yes, the silver model does indeed look so much like the older film cameras.

On article Fujifilm X100F Review (783 comments in total)
In reply to:

enossified: Is there something wrong with the test chart results? I was comparing the X100F against the Olympus E-M10 and the Olympus was noticeably sharper at all ISOs, either RAW or JPEG. 50% more pixels and double the sensor area should look a lot sharper?

I was thinking the same. I compared it to my Olympus EM5 and the Oly is better. I was expecting the new X100F to be better IQ wise.

In reply to:

guamy: ...but beware: non of these cameras mentioned on these round up has weather sealing that protect itself from dust and moisture overtime. My canon s100 was wasted due to stuck lense due to dust and canon refused to fix it.

I'm sorry to hear that. I had a Panasonic LX100 which had a lot of dust and hair on the sensor when it arrived. I did replace it, but eventually I sold it because of not wanting any future dust issues like so many others reported. It would be nice if manufacturers would consider making their future model lineup dust and moisture resistant. At least dust resistant.
