He's not a small dude.

Nope.

So it looks like you'll need a multiple images taken from slightly different spots, stereo at a minimum.

DPPMetro: It's funny that DPR is criticizing Cincotta, but never acknowledges the rabid cheating, shilling, arbitrary deletions, backscratching, and irregularities that are now pretty much the modus operandi of the challenge section of DPR.

I entered a few challenges but stopped. In one challenge, every single entry EXCEPT the winner had received at least 1 half-star vote! All of them, including the top finishers. That kind of did it for me. The challenges are fun and I believe entering them improved my photography but I don't get over-excited about the results. It's not nearly as rewarding as winning paying gigs.

Najinsky: Just how bad is this Journalism. Did anyone reading this story get even the slightest clue about actually what the infringements are supposed to be. Specifically, what IP rights are being disputed?

On the surface Nikon's claims sound strong. As reported, ASML are acknowledging attempts to negotiate a license fee with Nikon, that seems to indicate that ASML acknowledge the need for license rights exist. But with so few relevant facts, trying to interpret the situation seems a crap shoot at best.

Time to search for better informed sites I guess.

I read the story. I get what the infringements are.

Companies often get into licensing agreements over patents that are in dispute. Patent law is complicated and licensing agreements are often cheaper than lawsuits. It sounds like push came to shove on the difference between the strength of the patent claim and the cost of licensing the patent. Anyone who has been following patent law in the news would recognize this problem from the article. There's little wrong with the article. It's news.

On article Flickr reveals its top 25 photos of 2016 (190 comments in total)

Huh.
Nice shots but all of them are outdoor photography. All but one are landscapes. Is that all there is, in photography?

Perfect for my speedlight addiction.

Somebody deserves a medal for volunteering for pixel-peeping portraits with no retouching! I also think many of these shots are good examples of "just because you can [shoot wide open] doesn't mean you should."

I see the usual purple/green fringing and softness that I've come to expect from a lens shot at wide open. Even in the center there was some softness. These issues do seem to be well-controlled. It remains to be seen if these issues are more severe or less severe than the competition, especially compared to the no-hold-barred Otus.

Spectro: nice, basically what you really need is a powerful strobe that can do high sync and maybe a big space.

abstractface these are beautiful shots and I won't say mine are better. However, my shots HAVE been featured in plenty of places. As Tan68 said, 1/200th is more than adequate if you know how to overpower the ambient light. (Which you apparently don't.) I did a version of #7 on a lark about a week ago and while I won't say my version was better (for one, my model was not nearly as good looking) technically it was tack sharp as they say. So I know of what I speak and you don't.

High sync and a powerful strobe is not necessary AT ALL. I've done shots like these with two speed lights and shutter speed of 1/200th.

HappyVan: Does this D200 pic help you at all?

You went through at least 6 years worth of photos and you cherry-picked a photo with obvious sensor dust spots and diffraction issues. [slow clap] Bravo, troll.

You should really learn how to get rid of those spots. A little more skill and attention to detail would help tremendously.

Your problem, other than being a foam-at-the-mouth troll, is that you are delusional about your ability and accomplishment. It's why you haven't progressed in 10 years.

HappyVan: Hmmm, 27th of 46th is appropriate. Keep trying. I noticed that you averaged 12th out of the last 10 challenges.

You are not that guy. In fact, you are an anonymous nobody troll. Fact.

I have professional photographers come to help assist in some of my photo shoots, so they can learn some of my techniques. You are quite literally not qualified to carry my bags.

Clearly you don't know how to use white balance or how to do color-correction in post. But you do know all about cherry-picking, even though your photos don't give you much to pick from. You use all the classic tactics of a troll. Moving the goal posts is another favorite tactic of yours. And avoiding answering direct questions by deflecting and attacking.

You are a troll. You are trolling. That's what you do.

You are a troll and that alone makes you a coward.

You troll because you can't cut it as a photographer; it's the only way you can get attention, even if it's only negative attention.

Please be sure to enter those in a contest and let everyone know how you did, coward.

You're a cherry-picking troll who couldn't take a decent photo with a $50,000 Hasselblad. You blamed M4/3 when the problem was YOU. You're the classic example of someone who thinks gear makes the photographer.

You troll DPR because you suck as a photographer.

You're not an experienced photographer. You have the equivalent of one year of experience, repeated 12 times.

What makes you think you're qualified to comment on anything related to photography, anything at all? You're an absolutely terrible photographer with a pathological ego. The only reputation and accomplishment you have in the field is that of a well-known troll.

This image also got 18K "likes" on Instagram and I got paid $300 for it.

Volley.
