I suppose I should not be surprised that you chose to announce the end of our relationship in such a public and cowardly way. You were never one for subtlety and discretion.
And, so typical of you to blame all the failures on me. As though you contributed nothing to the breakup. But, then, I guess since you contributed so little to the relationship, I should not be surprised.
The truth is, I've known for a long time this wasn't working. If I could have ended things myself, I would have. But as you know, for me this was an arranged marriage. You picked me and I had no say in the matter. For the honor of my family (and honor is something my culture values very highly) I could not leave you.
At first, your clumsy attempts to satisfy me were amusing and not without a certain boyish charm. But, honestly, it quickly became apparent that you were never going to improve. In fact, I soon realized that you actually thought you were good. I know this is hurtful to say, but since you are the one that began this public conversation, I think honesty is justified.
Never once were you able to bring me to my full potential. No, let me be more candid, never, ever did I come remotely close to achieving the heights I was intended for. You would fiddle with my dials and move my joystick, but it was so mechanical and uninspired that I could hardly bear it. Honestly, most of the time I wished you would just stick to the green box and let me do it myself.
And the trips...well, what can I say? Sure, I enjoyed them, but it was as though you thought that simply going someplace new would solve all our problems. All it did was make me long for the relationships that I saw others enjoying. How I wished that could have been us. But you...all you ever did was worry about whether someone else had a newer, prettier model hanging on his shoulder.
You were so obsessed with showing me off that you didn't see how many of your fellow travelers lovingly treated their lowly Rebels with respect and appreciation and how they were rewarded in ways that you and I could never achieve together.
Yes, I saw the world. But, really, I would have traded it in a instant for a quiet little town in the Midwest, with someone who understood me and what I was meant to do.
Now, dear D810, believe me, I wish you no ill. In fact, I actually feel sorry for you. I know people say you are nothing more than an overinflated mass of silicon, but I know better. We are both from established families and, like me, you have not had any say in this relationship.
I would like to wish you a long and happy relationship, but I suspect that won't be the case. In the end, you will be blamed for everything. Just remember this. It is not you...it's him.

nice recovery PBD...very nice.
what's your workflow on something like this?
i shoot sports and it would be nice to improve my "face under the helmet" shadows.
Thats pretty impressive
Hey there Northstar,
It wouldn't work on most images, I stole the good eye and copied and pasted it then did a free transform over to the other side of the face.
I use Hon, both for Snoot and Up light reflector , Very easy to bring them in the long trip.
I love them special for Macro Photography, to control the light on the subject, and let the back ground dark with high shutter speed.
Beautiful pictures of the rose Surapon. I don´t think they sell Honl in Norway, but they sell the Rogue ones, are there any differences?
Dear Friend Mr. Quasimodo .
Thank you, Sir for your good words , that make my days.
I have both---BUT, HON is easy to make flat to keep in the backpack when I travel, Roque id quite a big size to carry on airplane.---Yes, You can Make HonL( Similar ) by use the Black thin card board ( or Thin Black or White Plastic sheet) size 22 CM X 30 CM, and glue the Alum. Foil on another side, And Use Rubber Band , or Velcro for Fastener = Bingo.
PS. I use Roque for Studio light, Just for Control Hair light on the back side of the model---That can Adjust the angle of the light with out interfere to the camera in the front.
A question if anyone has time. Is it possible to program the 1Dx to have four point expansion on the AF in AI Servo, while having only center point (without the expansion) in One Shot? I have my AI Servo programmed on the AF-ON button, and the One Shot on the star button next to it.
I don't think you can do it when you simply switch to One Shot, but you can have the * button to bring up anything, and if you go to the menu and assign a setup to the * button you can do it.
I have case 6 and 4 point expansion on the * button, switch to One shot with one of the two front buttons, spot focus on the other, because I can combine those with the two AF setups on the AF-ON and *.
Is there something going on in Brazil?
