Yes, I should have said, interesting -- for those who have eyes to see.

I haven't been there since the seventies, but if you like lit/history, there is the O.Henry House.

I'm no fan of the Digital Rev videos, but they do one thing very well -- their series on pro photographers using cheap cameras.

Perhaps the OP would be well served to view a few of those.

Portrait / Jack-O-Lantern Portrait

It being the Halloween season...

I just realized I don't have a decent jack-o-lantern picture. The best I have is this hastily done thing with a little P&S from five years or so ago. Anyone have any good pictures? I'm going out looking the next week or so, see what I can scare up, so to speak.

Third Party Manufacturers / Rationale Video -- Switch to Sony from Nikon

Interesting reasons why one pro photographer moved to Sony mirrorless from Nikon...

Makes me wonder how far this will go before Nikon and Canon get some convincing product into the marketplace.

Congratulations on that sweet new FF!!

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your work -- especially when you get that digital enlarger.

So far you seem to be getting away with it, but you don't seem to have a grasp of the CR culture. A couple of friendly suggestions....

You bring up a NIKON product from 35 years ago you want to compare with a possible new Canon lens. That's really not done.

Then you bring up the Rockwell as a source? That's lighter fluid on the flames around here!!

Best of luck to you on that!

A walk in the Adirondacks... 70D & 10-22 EF-S

In fact I have a question regarding this pic: I used a polarizing filter, and I think the contrast between the dark water (due to the polarizer) and the sunlit trees on the bottom makes it look unreal. Do you think it is too much polarization-induced effect? Any way to fix it in post?

And in general, what post processing filters/masks/etc would you apply to this picture?

Since you asked...

I think the composition is wonderful -- it invites the eye in a delightfully colorful way. Two things give it the unreal look. First, the unnatural surface of the water looks like the bottom of a frying pan. No real water is that devoid of detail. Second, the distant trees lack resolution and clarity.

The causes I don't know, and as for fixing in post, I don't think anything would help much.

Still nice to look at though.
