    I haven't seen anyone mention here that the max shutter speed on the 6D is 1/4000 and it looks like flash sync is at 1/180th? I didn't know Canon's would even take an exposure at 1/180th. Maybe...

    Hey, I had an idea to make "flash cards" of focal length, aperture, subject distance and DOF (giving 3 and requiring the fourth) to kind of memorize a spectrum of depth of field values that are...

    I saw that you never got feedback on this so I thought I would comment. I know it is hard to second shoot to get great shots, so spend that time trying to learn from the other photographer. Never...

    Most of my best travel and landscape pictures occur around the time of sunrise and sunset. I don't know what the permissions are for this location, but I would say that photographically, without...

    I like things symmetric or obviously not, so, though the perspective distortion works here, I would correct the slight off-horizontal part and also center the door. I would also like to see a...

    I think even the second one is over-processed (of course this is somewhat subjective). Rainbows are exciting and make you want to take pictures, but are hard to get very vibrant in-camera. As...

    I actually like the first picture better as the off-center composition and the darker background helps me focus on your son. In the second example, the camera is too bright and I focus on that. ...

    Since I've got several positive comments here and elsewhere on the Mesa arch shot, I think I should change that to my "official" submission for this one.

  18. Re: B+W filters from maxsaver - critique needed

    Atulmehta, I am not entirely sure what you are asking, but I think you may have the wrong idea about how a UV filter protects the lens. It does not protect the lens from UV, but protects the front...

  21. Re: Basic Lowlight Landscape - Reciprocity Question

    I would go as wide as you can without running into vignetting or corner softness. If your lens is sharp in the corners wide, then vignetting can be fixed in post anyway. You want to get as much light...

    Re: Canon 50mm 1.4 or 50mm 1.2

    I have the 1.4 and really like it. Not sure how much I would appreciate the extra speed of a 1.2. It would be a safer bet to start with the 1.4 and go to the 1.2 if you had to than to go the other...

    I feel good that it is still on-par with the 70-200 f/4 IS which I have. As long as I don't need the extra stop, I got the IQ! I think with the 2.8 II will make the extenders much more attractive,...

    Re: Lens sharpness

    Peter, I agree with a previous poster that you are focused on the seatbelt in the first picture and on the statue in the second. You need a narrower aperture to get the face in focus and the...
