Hi dilbert.
Please could you show us a picture of yours to show us how it should be done, or if you don't have one perhaps a detailed explanation of the technique and processing needed to achieve no blown highlights. Whilst you at doing that the rest of us can take our pictures wih blown highlights and at least have something to show!

Cheers Graham.

I can't believe how many of these images have blown highlights.

This is one of the first ever sunset pictures that I took with a DSLR. Unfortunately it gets converted to sRGB for the web ...

Dull and lifeless.

The French will be so glad to hear you describe their capital city in that way.

This has nothing to do with where an image was taken, it's the depiction of it. That shot has no soul.

A photographer cannot capture what isn't there, so if there is no soul in that photograph then there is no soul in Paris.

By that logic, since there are no orange cars in the image, therefore there are no orange cars in Paris ::)

The image says far more about the ability of the photographer than it does about Paris.

Phil.

On a monster road trip this summer, we stopped by Yellowstone and experienced one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever had:

What, you mean I have no soul?!?! OMG, how will I live without having a soul! Let me find a bridge to jump off!

Can't we just enjoy some nice sunsets without getting into flaming insults and cheap shots? Is this all we have?

PS:  @Dilbert    Please let me know when and where so I can prove that my 7D has not reached the end of its life :)

Chill out gentlemen......
You are all missing the most important aspect of the picture.... He took it from the middle of a busy street in Paris and did not get run over :)

Wow, that's really pathetic. Is that the best you have?

Well why don't you show me how it is done? After all, you've been shooting for 40 years so after that much time behind a camera, every click of your button must be gold.

Doesn't matter how long someone shoots, no one ever makes great photography with every click. Check your PMs.
