Hi Olivier,

Yes I think you are right about all of your comments.

The blue cast is a constant problem for me because it seems to run about 50% for and 50% against the heavy blue tint. More...

Re: WHY are your pics stolen....

I think you need to read your own quote, "If the image is not visually copyrighted". The copyright that TE puts below the image does not visually copyright the image. The copyright notice needs to...

Re: Future Pro photo contest at Microsoft will make you mad.

I never claimed that posting on TE would be a route to professional photography, that takes hard work, marketing, persistence and good photos plus a dose of luck. No, I am actively working toward...

Re: 'Going image rate' for US magazine

Compared to rates here in switzerland, I think the rate quoted ($100) is quite low. Rates here for a full-size magazine page start at 465 francs (which is slightly less than $465) for a magazine...

Future Pro photo contest at Microsoft will make you mad.

Microsoft on their Pro Photo website is sponsoring a contest for Future Pro Photographers. The catch is you have to be actively enrolled in a University. I think that this is an affront to anyone...

Re: WHY are your pics stolen....

As far as I know there is no prohibition against adding a copyright notice and a watermark to any image displayed on TE. As a matter of fact, it is a very good practice to do so. If the image is...

Re: Copyright on pictures used for commercial purposes

Regrettably, I have decided to pull most of my pictures. Especially the ones that I would like to commercialize. It seems to me that too often I see people talking about their images turning up...

Re: Wide angle lens

I imagine that you have returned from your trip some time ago, but the goals you state are in conflict. Great lanscapes with wide open views call for a wide angle lens; such as the ones being...

Thanks for the comments. I corrected the wording and I agree and disagree on the castle being too centered. It is too centered to have the correct "art" composition but if if I crop the phot to...

To saturate or not; that is the question!

Tacky, I know! But I find it interesting that quite often I see thwe comment that a photo is over-saturated. And surely this is a valid comment. But I have also noticed that a HUGE number of the...

Re: Burning - Ethical or Unethical?

I really think that the terms should be clarified. Burning (and conversely dodging) are used to darken or lighten an area. In a traditional darkroom you "burn in" an area by allowing it to recieve...

Re: TE sucks for panoramas

Hi Dan,

I think you may be right for "most" panoramas. But it depends heavily on the radial distance being covered and the vertical angle of view. My panoramas generally have very little vertical...

Re: How to resize a photo?

First, every time you save a jpeg you degrade the image. If I open a jpg, edit it and save it, the image degrads. Each time I do this the image degrads further. So, always start with the original...
