  • Well, Dan, that eye...

    Fresh venue in this lens brings it well...

    There's one subject we miss, maybe later.

    These are very fine, many of them.

  • Androole, that's interesting.

    How would you avoid the image itself vignetting, though?

    May be able to compensate in post, perhaps, as it would not be as severe as some I worked out by better...

  • As you might suspect, these are mainly sketches and an example painting or two from historical artists, but these are very valuable for study -- you can download or browser-peruse quite detailed...

  • Commented on a photo in the Nikon D5600 sample gallery sample gallery

    Wow. That is a great image, Wenmei. In each of several aspects.

    Thanks for sharing...

  • At the same time, there were the submarines off the coast, and the general aggressiveness of attempt to silence America for South Pacific acquisitions. So, a hard point to judge -- especially in a...

  • In some senses the Japanese can teach us well, how complicated truly all of we humans are, especially any who think they are somehow straightforward. There's a great point in Ruth Benedict's book,...

  • Allison, it is great to see these, if it would be useful to also include one or two visible before of the desert outposts that the camps were. There were also photos of families in them, who were...

  • A bit of a smear job (no pun) on the XZ-1, surely.

    I shoot an XZ-2, which has wonderful image quality, and there are many who are very enthusiastic on the XZ-1, some even by comparison.

    The pity...

  • I'm probably falling into the forum trap (drain?), but...

    Why on earth is it that so many don't seem to realize they can _adjust_ the default JPEG colors once to suit their tastes, and then enjoy...

  • Commented on a photo in the Panasonic Lumix G85 sample gallery sample gallery

    Must say, it's very nice to keep seeing 'that girl' again, and with her smile quite returned... ;)

  • Commented on a photo in the Panasonic Lumix G85 sample gallery sample gallery

    Have a look next door, same image with a little correction that could as easily be set for JPEGs in the camera.

    Also, it may just be a white balance problem in the cloudy day, plus that the...

  • Commented on a photo in the Nikon 105mm F1.4E ED real world sample images sample gallery

    Most welcome, and well deserved...

  • I think there is a point here, as much as I appreciate the un-dry enthusiasms of the DP crew these days. Liveliness is worth a lot ;)

    The kind of thing I'd personally like to see less of is the...

  • OTOH grain of pushed-developed Ilford grey-scale film back then led to some very apropos pictures of birds flyng among beach dunes, where the 'sand' extended throughout the image.

    It makes me...

  • I think this is a very important reply to read carefully, Richard. It brings in the extra dimension Rishi has recently articulated: the random quality of light itself, evident in the darker scenes...

  • Commented on a photo in the Nikon 105mm F1.4E ED real world sample images sample gallery

    Dan, you are not getting worse as an artistic photographer.

    This is far from the only example. Cherish that eye ;)

  • Rishi, your points all seem well taken -- yet I think PhotoKhan has a very good request for you as well.

    There's fairness -- if you use Nikon guys for Nikon, Canon guys for Canon would be...

  • You know, I think some of the biggest treats on DPReview are these lens galleries. They get better and better, with each of staff contributing their personalities of talent. Richard's polo shots,...

  • I just read through the Amature Photographer interview with Mr. Yamaki Kazuo, and came away very impressed. It's the clearest statement made as to what his intents in Sigma are and have been. And ...
  • That's as I pretty clearly remember also, Roland - it was discussed many times. My thinking when I read the statement in the interview is that from what he said, Yamaki Kazuo was indicating he had ...
