  • Commented on 'Your gagging me?'

    Thanks for your replies. As for being on this site for 3 years now Coleslaw I obviously don't spend as much time on it as yourself, but thank you for enlightening me, i do indeed know now and as you all say the images are picked at random, that to makes a lot of sense now.

    Anyway i have a life to get on with...thanks again .

  • Commented on 'Your gagging me?'

    Posted a comment on a featured e2 photo a couple of days ago which has not appeared on my recent activity page. My comments was honest, not rude or vindictive, I expressed my opinion which was that i could not understand why such a poor image was a featured E2 photo and that i thought the image was very poor, then apologised with a sorry.

    The image made such an impact on me that i cannot remeber who posted it but it was called....I think "Jack Again" and that it was a black and white portrait of some thai guy in big shades.

    Anyway, beacause I have expressed my opinion it would appear that this is not liked by someone here and therefore my comment has not been added or else why does this not appear on my recent activity page.

    If anyone knows the image i am on about then let me know the link and we can see if my comment appears, or if you are a moderator for e photozione or whatever you teccie lot call yourselves, perhaps you could shed some light.

    Gagged or not ?

    Thanks Chris, I may do the 2 month trial on the mag and have a look, but was also wanting to start a course that I can do from home and end up with a recognisable qualification. Would theirs suit?

    Cheers

  • Commented on 'processing digital images'

    Thanks for your replies. I think I am asking an impossible question but would you agree that some of these images are subject to HDR treatment?
    How else would you get the results of perfect ground to sky exposures and such vibrant colours?

  • Commented on 'processing digital images'

    What exactly determines a processed image? There are some stunning images posted on the site every day and some of these are obviously "processed" and by that I mean they are not just subjected to a saturation boost and a tweek to the contrast, but they leap at you. I am in total appreciation of the lengths the creator has gone to, to capture that particular moment, angle, time, location.... you name it, we have all been there...well i have! i think my basic question is how are these images given such life. It would be unfair to name but a few of the contributors to the site( plus there are a few ) but they and you may know who I mean. I really want to expand the after shot experience and would be very grateful for everybodies comments and even suggestions?

  • Commented on 'update on sensor cleaning'

    Thanks everyone, so far seems I am unfortunate or swap out lenses too often! Either that or the contamination is in the lenses.....a whole different ball game I guess!

    Looks like I will investigate with my trusty old blower again!

    Thanks

  • Commented on 'update on sensor cleaning'

    Hi all, is there any one sensor cleaning product that is more popular or in more use currently? I realise there are a million and one products out there but previous posts that I could find all seem quite old now, so suggestions welcome.
    Thanks All

    Cheers everyone, helpful to know and interesting point from BMX Bandit about the haggling, which I guess is something that is not on an option on-line.

    Thanks again.

  • Commented on 'Best place to buy?'

    In the minefield of suppliers and retailers out there, is there a best place to buy from? Obviously considering price and after sales support etc there are going to be good and bad retailers, could do with some feedback and possible pointers?
    I am looking at upgrading from my D70 to the D200 with the addition of a SB800 and battery grip.

    Thanks

    Ok so now I do feel an idiot, nothing like doing your homework before posting eh!?
    Do you accept luncheon vouchers or nectar points??!

  • Commented on 'Favourites List'

    At the risk of appearing a complete idiot and asking for something that already exists, is there not a way of setting up a favourites list?
    There are a number of members who use this site who's work I greatly admire and I would like it that I could be notified when they upload new work.
    Having a favourites list and notification service would allow me to do this easily.
    Don't get me wrong, I love to scan through the reader gallery and see some cracking and diverse work which is what it is all about, just would make things a little easier when time is short.

    So if it does not exist and is not just a priveledge of an e2 membership, how about it??

  • Commented on 'estimate required.'

    Have looked into upgrading my D70 and have been qouted 200 on body only by LCE, so figure around the 250 mark about right on a private sale. I would be interested in one of the SB-800 guns if you sell seperately.

  • Commented on 'Help please'

    Hi Merl, see you have made the leap up, being a fellow nikon d70 user I am intersetd to see what you think as I am toying with the same idea of upgrading. I was going to say are you sure you are shooting in RAW, but that would be daft.I always use pic proj to download, then drag direct into raw shooter essentials. Have recently got a card reader as have always plugged the 70 straight into the PC, this has worked fine in PP so far. Beyond that talk to Nikon?
    Good Luck

  • Commented on 'Who uses a D70s. And what's you opinion?'

    Ditto all of the above. I like the weight of my D70 and the build quality.Am really tempted by the 80 or the 200 though!!

  • Commented on 'nikon d70 photographs'

    I shoot with a D70 and will be looking to jump up to the 80 or 200 so could be the time to buy eh? Guess it's a good way to look at expected quality??

  • Commented on 'Shutter priority - aperture priority - or manual'

    Mmmmmmmmmmm .......is for Manual, but then it's funny that we all have our preferences and then go and jig them on the PC!!So what is best?? For me it's in the taking of the shot and taking control hence 98% in manual.

  • Commented on 'Please help metering on D70s'

    I know your frustrations as I have gone through a similar situation with my D70. I tend to shoot totally on M manual mode now, but stick with it and experiment.I would stick to shooting in RAW as you can always salvage a lot more with a decent bit of software, but if like me you like to "take" a good picture rather than "make" one, then stick with it and shoot everything in sight!

    thanks to all, will probably give both a bash.

  • Commented on 'Prints'

    I would like to print off a few of my ever growing number of shots on my PC taken on my Nikon D70.
    Just what is the best route for the very best quality that will warrant expensive framing.
    I am a bit dubious about the high street pop in type of establishments.
    I will be looking at sizes from the typical 6" x 4" up to A3.

    Thanks
