  • Commented on High Quality: Motion Blur challenge

    Hi David,
    I realised that the rules should have stated something along the lines of what you mentioned just after the submissions began and the rules became locked. I placed a notice at the very...

  • Commented on High Quality: Motion Blur challenge

    Yes, these images are perfectly fine.

  • Commented on High Quality: Motion Blur challenge

    I understand that a lot of you aren't fond of the 6+ megapixel rule. This is the final challenge in the "High Quality" series, so the rule will be gone as of next week. Whilst brilliant images can...

  • Commented on High Quality: Motion Blur challenge

    Keep in mind that there should at least be a part of the image which doesn't show any motion blur.

  • Commented on High Quality: Portraits challenge

    alex326 & Wildbegonia:
    I apologise for not clarifying what was meant by portrait in the description. Since the challenge is now well into the voting phase, let's assume that a portrait is a photo...

  • Conveniently in a similar price range to modern-day Leicas.

  • "Yevgeny, Berlin is ours and we have the flag up, get the picture!"

    "Wait a second Alexei, I can't find my ISO 200 film."

    "Just do it!!"

  • Commented on More HDR challenge

    Even the in-camera effects usually retain all the EXIF data.

  • Commented on Exploration in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    It's ironic how the kit lens can produce such incredible work when mounted the wrong way. :-)
    Congratulations on a much deserved win!

  • Commented on My human body challenge

    I don't think the problem was that the topic was too difficult; I think it was that most of the entrants simply didn't take the time to properly read and interpret the rules. The sample image you...

  • They don't have to; If they feel that they can start off with a higher end camera then that's their choice. But those kind of cameras are in a very different price range (Sony RX10: ~£700 vs Pentax...

  • Beginners wouldn't see it as a bad camera, nor would they probably need anything more than what a camera like this offers.

    Better sensors don't produce better images unless the person knows how to...

  • I think far too many people are forgetting that this camera's aimed at beginners.
    Yes, the sensor is tiny.
    Yes, the viewfinder is under par in terms of resolution.
    No, the pictures aren't going to...

  • Commented on High Quality: Portraits challenge

    Hi minzaw,
    A higher resolution picture doesn't necessarily result in slower uploads/downloads. The main factor to this is the total file size, which also depends on the JPEG quality the photo was...

  • Or maybe this is a way for Microsoft to creep into the realm of DSLRs.

  • Commented on sunflare challenge

    Sunflare and lensflare are pretty much the same thing; it's basically those coloured shapes you see pointing from the sun when it's in the picture or just outside.

  • Commented on Myall lakes night sky in the Low Light - High ISO challenge

    Congratulations on winning the challenge. This is a lovely photo and a perfect example of what can be achieved by ramping up the ISO speed.

  • Commented on sunflare challenge

    Quite a few of these don't have actual sunflare.....

  • Submitted a challenge entry S for Spider
    Placed 41st in the challenge.
  • Much more dynamic and appealing than yesterday's post..... thank you for sharing this.
