Re: Challenge #62:"Patterns of: Frozen; Dead; Lifeless Forms"-Submissions until 01 November 2016

Well, here's something dead with someone live mocking it's tongue hanging out! This was Elizabeth's deer from the youth hunt in 2013. Emma goes with me this year Oct 29/30, so maybe I'll get to submit another. Dusty How unpleasant to see a child mocking death - your words - and with the obvious app...

Re: A57 v A77 Image quality

As I've said before, I really regret selling my Minolta 7D.

Re: Long Exposures

Nice shot but I'm afraid there's no EXIF data, so how long is a long exposure?

Re: How wide is wide enough?

Tony, Thank you for the examples. I thought I would see more distortion at these focal lengths. Sury Sury, the link I provided to Dyxum is really quite informative. If you click on a lens, towards the bottom of the lens description you'll see a link to "Dyxum Forum Sample Images". These a...

Re: How wide is wide enough?

Sury, one of my favourite lens when I used a film SLR was an old Sigma 18mm lens. Equivalent to a 12mm a-mount. I found it entirely useable as I'm sure you'd find a 12-24 lens now. I only used 2 lenses (not strictly true) with film, the 18mm and an ancient Soligor zoom, somewhere in the range 40-150...

Re: How wide is wide enough?

Sury, if you haven't made your mind up yet, why not check out the lenses on http://www.dyxum.com/lenses/results.asp?chbLensType=3
The lens marks out of 5 are much of a muchness and most lenses have entries in the Dyxum sample images so you can judge for yourself......

Is Retouching Acceptable?

David's latest headline. At the end it says "leave a comment" but I don't subscribe to Facebook, Twitter or Google or any other potentially abhorrent forum so I'll comment here. You provide 4 examples. The first one with a modicum of adjustment to a portion of the image, perfectably accept...

Re: Evaluations and Winner Announcement of Challenge #60: “We’re Going Autumnal !”

. Hi Cogito; :) Thank you for your contributions to the challenge. You definitely have an innate love for elaborate colouring in post-production. Your photo shot on the way to Yosemite (#4), reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie ‘Psycho’, the frame could easily have made the background for some o...

Re: London Town

15 years ago eh? Probably worth another visit. Did you go up in the EYE? My guess is no since ANY shot from "up there" is quitr spectacular. Oh lord, I'm going to have to look through my negatives to find my images from the Eye... Hope you enjoyed your visit and find time for another. P.S....

Re: Out of the ordinary - Open to all

Sury, have not seen that sign on "Ice Road Truckers"......

Not what I expected to see in an alley in old Quebec!

Thanks, Sury! Out of your images my favourites are #2 and #4. I personally find it difficult to NOT over-exaggerate the colours... And no, no, no, I'm not suggesting that you've done that! Having said that I did take this in Algonquin - I think there's more than one tree involved! http://g2.img-dpre...

Top left and near-top right provide the autumn colour..... Algonquin in Canada. Taken with my Minolta XM on Fujicolor 100 ASA. No idea of what lens, aperture or shutter speed. http://g4.img-dpreview.com/0A2DBED890D947919CBD991F1BF35825.jpg Again with the Minolta XM. Kew gardens, London. Still no ide...
