Re: A Re-Imagined Thing

Oh, it's beautiful. Elegant. Sinuous. I love it. Am I to understand that it doesn't actually look precisely like that? It's more digital magic than real? I'm NOT complaining---it's gorgeous, just wondering if the Thing really is bland but not WOW (now). (OK)

Re: Frostbit Daffodils in Jam Jar, ETTR, Manual Settings

You didn't clip those yellows, that's for sure. Do you use the blinkies or just the histogram or both? By live view do you mean the EVF or the backscreen? We have such cool tricks hiding inside these cameras. Thanks for looking and commenting, Minnie. I used the histogram plus eyeballing on the scr...

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

Great discussion on exposure Chuck, whether the information is new or review, we can all benefit. I've seen some interesting demonstrations advocating why it's better to choose a WB (even if it isn't technically correct) than allow the camera to choose it, and I follow that to an extent: if the WB ...

I think Tony is from China or India. Matt
Yyyep! Probably a mass mailing to anyone on any photo or photo sharing site. We might all get one. I don't think it was intended as an insult to your obvious capability, Piet. ;)

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

Duck, I DO NOT mean to step on your toes, but I saw these questions from Matt and decided I'd essay to answer them . Please dispute me where I am wrong! Duck, What is meant by thirds selection?

Re: come sit on the deck with me

thank you Frank and Matt. Chuck, Matt cracked me up too! Thank you for the idea on the ring frame stock shot, I'll see if I can clean it up a little. In the mean time, this morning I took the sky that Matt liked and tried to composite in some birds that I also got yesterday. (I'm not to sure about ...
