Roland Karlsson's recent activity

  • Interesting question to the photographer. How did he manage to get the images without people?

  • Many of the images are also a kind of extreme high key images. Most of the image is pushed up to the bright part. Then there need to be as good exposure of the dark parts. Otherwise there would be...

  • Oops - I have to apologise to dpreview. You can get them bigger by clicking in the upper right corner on the expand icon.

  • Yes! I really also recommend you all to look at his web site or at 500px. Much larger images. Makes a much better impact.

    I have said it before - and I say it again. It is a pity that dpreview...

  • Yes, this very interesting use of HDR is what impress me the most. In most HDR work HDR is used to save an image with too much dynamic range. But here it seems like he can visualise the image and...

  • I think you shall take a look at de Santos web site and at his pages at 500px. It is all kind of subjects. Both nature and man made. And all have the same typical de Santos touch. They are white -...

  • So - you just waved away all photographing of man made objects - like cars, buildings, trains, cities, clothes - just like that. It is only a 'second inspiration'.

    That he used HDR to create...

  • @Nuno - this is not an easy diskussion. Sure, there are old nice lenses that have nice properties that are more esoteric than contrast and sharpness and distortion. We all know that. It is like...

  • Ehhhh ... what the %&%¤%¤# ...

    Have never seen such a thing before.

    Normally water birds do not get wet as they are protected by the clever feather construction plus some fat. But this one sure...

  • Commented on Lee in the Expecting challenge

    OK, missed that. Sometimes you read what you think should be there rather what really is. Sorry.

  • OK - nice to know. It seems though that tele zooms are easier to make than wide angle zooms.

  • @fatdeeman - I did not get the message.

  • Commented on Lee in the Expecting challenge

    hehe .... and it is against DPReview posting rules if you put them direct in the post.

    Nude pictures of pregnat women can be very beautiful, in particular in monochrome IMHO.

    Note to reader - if...

  • Commented on Lee in the Expecting challenge

    BTW - lower hand is probably hiding underwear. OK - I know some find underwear no no to show. But, it is actually clothes.

    Enough of this - it is a very nice photo, in all respects. And if you...

  • This zoom is very short. It might be just as easy to do as a prime. Maybe.

  • Yeah, a 24-35 cober most interesting wide angle lenses (24, 28, 35) so it is sort of optimal if it is just as sharp as any of them. But the idea that only use one lens - the 24 mm and crop if you...

  • If you have a sensor with enough resoluition and lenses to boot, then why not.

    That all said, it sounds a bit handy with a 24-35, even though 24-50 sounds more useful.

  • 24, 28 and 35 it would be. Those are the focal lengths it replaces.
