Interesting how quickly this thread derailed.......

Software & Accessories / Re: Adobe Lightroom for iPad Coming Soon

I'm a huge fan of Lightroom, I think it's fantastic. I would hate to see it go solely subscription-based, I was waiting until LR6 to upgrade from 4...... hopefully adobe still has those like me in mind  :-\

Here is the smaller 190XPROB.

I personally use the Manfrotto 190XPROB and think its fantastic for macro work, or any other type of situation where suspending a camera over a (small) object is necessary. It's not horribly expensive either, If you do end up going down the purchase route, I would suggest that one.

Even if I were
1) A professional
2) An Adult

There's no way I would go to Sochi. As aforementioned, I don't have a bulletproof vest  ;)

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 08:20:57 PM »
Basically, he's spinning BS for the benefit of his Nikon subscribers to NAPP which I think is dishonest if not explicitly it is self-deceiving

Obviously he said the things he did to do a bit of damage control, but he explicitly stated that he wasn't being paid (directly, at least) to switch. He added a couple reasons why he switched, which I think is totally fair if not expected. Although I'm sure "because I wanna" was a factor in Kelby switching to Canon, I'm finding it hard to believe that he wouldn't have any other reasons to switch, or that he shouldn't share them with the subjects of his empire. His points were all valid, and didn't sound BS to me. Overall Kelby is a pretty decent human being, and doesn't seem the type to deliberately pull things over people's eyes

EOS Bodies / Re: The Next DSLR Will Be Entry Level [CR3]
« on: January 18, 2014, 05:53:57 PM »
A revamp of the T3 would be nice. The current version is pretty outdated and even if you're someone who knows what he/she's doing (like me) it can be...... difficult at times. which is why I'm saving for the 70D. But in my opinion every manufacturer needs a dirt cheap super entry level camera, as consumers will undoubtedly upgrade to more expensive models as they become unsatisfied with their current camera. So IMO the new entry level camera has a 99.99% chance of being something along the lines of a T4 or 1200D

could be a 14-24mm 2.8???

That would be fantastic, but considering how eagerly anticipated and looked for it is, plus the fact that it would be a (figuratively) big lens, I would guess that there would have been lots of teasers and press invitations beforehand. So probably not.

I can completely relate to all of these, being 14 I'm pretty sure I know one of each.......... there's going to be a biiiig generational gap of photographers in 20 years

By the way, I also have an old Nikkormat EL-2 (I think it was also sold as Nikon) that I like to shoot now and then. How do you like yours?

I love it! Having never really been in much contact with film, I like to bring it out occasionally to play with, or bring along on trip to the botanic gardens.  It was actually handed down to my by my Grandfather, back from when he used it, so that makes it even more special.

That last photo looks like a Ansel Adams frame but I don't blame you for taking it. I would have done the same. :D

Right on! The Ansel Adams photograph taken at Snake River Overlook in the Tetons is one of my all time favorites, so naturally I had to stop by the last time I was out there. It looks a little different nowadays, but it's a really beautiful place.

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

I don't find the color ones to look natural, a bit too yellow here or green there, sometimes overly saturated. The nice thing is that this is easily corrected if you shoot RAW. You can even make variations on the theme with different renderings to suit different moods.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've thought that I may have some color accuracy issues with my laptop, so I should check on fixing that. I do shoot RAW, but until I look into the color issue I'll slightly desaturate the images, and adjust color temp

Hello! I've been a long time browser, sometimes poster. While I've posted some individual sets before, I'd Like to put out what I think represents my best work (in landscapes, anyway). Any and all constructive criticism welcome!
