  • Wisteria by younchin

    Thank you everyone for the comments regarding the exposure, colour temperature and composition elements. The mods are particularly helpful in demonstrating the points made. I downloaded and viewed side by side with the original and can see the improvements.
    I've learnt quite many things from this exercise. Among all that, the background distracting elements has always being big challenge, particularly with this second post, the angle chosen made it a bit harder to exclude a lot of elements. Also, in future, I probably would be more willing using a tripod to make a detailed study first before pressing the button. That may have help from cutting off the top branch.
    Thank you again.

  • The Mausoleum by GillyB

    Beautiful composition, the pale green leaves in the foreground and the proportion of the two sizes make it very picturesque!

    Beautiful shot of a lovely model. I'd also love to see shoot at f/2.8, if still possible.

  • If the Neanderthals had won????

    "could it be a high element of Neanderthal lineage that attracts certain photographers to large white lenses?" Some correlation with white sticks, I think. jas

  • Just received Nikon 50mm f1.8

    Agreed. For the money its a bargain. The only problem is it makes you realise how soft zooms can be :o( my 18-70mm lens pales when compared to the 50mm prime..... ...

  • Posted on: New EC law forces Hasselblad to discontinue XPan camera

    I think this is just another example of pitfalls for a monopoly position: allowing them pricing too high to be out of reach of ordinary forks result in a smaller pool of enthusiasts, lack of competition and complacency that make them even reluntant to redesign with non-lead!

  • Posted on: OpenRAW survey aims to establish a standardised Raw image format for photographers

    Agree with OpenRaw.orgs initiatives and strongly think EPZ should support it, representing end users interests.
    I think it is a very timely issue to be tackled with a standard body, as the digital imaging technology is relative mature particularly in the optical sensors and recording devices and size of storage is less of an issue. As an end user looking for higher qualities in images, most of us may have ended up shooting in raw lots of time. Also, we're on the verge of a booming era for digital imagery it is important to address some of the real issues that OpenRaw.org has raised for wider awareness.
    It is true that we already have many standards for imaging such as jpeg, tiff, etc. But, these standards do not address directly the raw recording. For example, to render in jpeg, my camera will have to do quite a bit of processing from sensors data to jpeg specifications. Common sense tells me that the CPU inside my current camera may not have as high numerical precision when comparing to the CPU in my laptop PC. No wonder we are able to get much better qualities out from shooting RAW, and afterward, do the converting to jpeg or others on a laptop. Raw files also provide higher post-processing flexibilities. These are just some of the main reasons for shooting raw.
    As users of cameras, we all would want to have full control and proprietary over the images recorded from our shooting. We feel it is our right to be able to get to every bit of data recorded by the cameras, either by ourselves (if youre a computer nerd! Grin) or other 3rd parties who will be able to provide tools for us to do so. For that to happen, the camera makers will have to make public the specification of format used in recording to the raw file. What could be better to have a open standard?

  • Posted on: Nikon to axe most of 35mm product range

    Regarding 35mm lenses, does it mean that "ALL the auto-focus lenses are still going to be continued or even upgraded". As all these AF lenses are stll capable of manual focus, I can't see any lost for 35mm users.
