DPreview challenge..

Recommended Posts

Anyone that has a remote interest in digital photography knows about DPreview. It is the holy grail of digital photography sites. I've recently entered a few shots in the challenges forum and have had some decent success finishing 5th, 25th and 200 and somethingth. My fourth entry was a winner. It's quite an honor as there is some awesome photographers involved in DPreview.

 

The theme was HDR. Here's a link to the thread.

Well done Dan! I'm starting to play around with HDR myself. Truly an inspirational photo for me.

I have some umbrage with your first sentence, I now have that site saved thank you (Something to do in between arguments here :whistling: )

 

I really like your photo. I find some of the HDR stuff a bit overdone, but I think the monochromatic appearance of your photo really works and doesn't come across as over processed. :clapping:

Just spent some time poking around that site Dan, thanks again. Your photograph had some stiff competition, I'll need to work on my skills, eye and post-processing if I am even going to consider entering a photograph of mine there.

I've been visiting DPreview for at least 8 years now. The discussion forums, which are brand based, are very active. They're a good place to learn about a specific camera brand or model. DPreviews in depth camera reviews and ratings are highly regarded. If you`re thinking about buying a new camera, check out what they have to say about it. Finally, the challenges are quite new there. They`ve only been around for a couple of months or so. It`s fun to enter that favorite shot and see how you fare amongst your peers.

 

I`m happy to hear that you`re enjoying it.

Congratulations Dan! You are now the recognized master of HDR. Thanks for the reminder about DP as I hadn't been there for a while. Once again, great shot, especially since it was probably taken in July, given our summer.

thanks for sharing...Alan

BTW, is the DSC-F717 DSLR?

 

The Sony 717 is not a dslr. It is a high end "prosumer" with full manual controls. It was quite the camera in its day. List price was almost $2000.00 when it first came out. I haven't used it much in the past

year since I bought a dslr, but I'll never get rid of it.

 

Thanks for the comment.

I'm super late with a reply Dan, but that is an amazing photograph. I'm really considering a DSLR for my next trip to the NW...
