Nice image, Herman. 

 

That camo job shows that Mother Nature is a genius.  :)

Nice shot, Ron.

 

PJ, now you know why I will gladly take the 200-500 over a new cell phone.  :)




#247525 Wahh! Any iPhone x Owners? Sniff Sniff Boo Hoo

PJ, if I have to choose between a new phone and a 200-500 lens, guess what?  I'm not choosing the phone!  :lol:  :P  :lol:

Nice image, Herman.

 

Unfortunately, from what I hear, Nikon still hasn't figured out how to make WiFi work.  The reviews that I've read suggest that it is frustrating to use, regardless of camera.  :)

Nikon Rumours has a review of the D850, by Steve Perry.

Are your palms getting sweaty yet, Art?

 

I would have posted this yesterday, but parking for our Remembrance Day service (sorry, no images this year) is always at a premium, so we left quite early.  :)  :)

Nice case, Jim.  Congrats.  :)




#247215 Wahhhhhhh, Alligator Tears, King Kong Sniffle and T-Rex BooHoos

Only the clinically insane use their phones without a case on so not really an issue.

 

Fully agree.  That said, will the Samsung phone case burn if the phone is used as an emergency fire starter?  :P

Nice shot, Art.

 

Also, thanks for showing how you lit it.  :)

At least our Samsung's can fall from a height of 3 feet without the screen shattering... according to research by insurance companies, the iPhone 10 is the most prone to shattering of all of Apple's iPhones ever manufactured!

 

At least with a Sumsung, you're guaranteed to stay warm during Winter...

 

:P  :P  :P

 

Stay warm with a Samsung?  I guess so.  As long as the phone doesn't self-ignite while it's in your pants pocket!  :lol:  :P  :lol:

Robin, does that duck have relatives in Canada?  Looks familiar, but quite smaller.  ;)




#247116 Graffiti!

Nice shot, Bill. 

 

Like you, I won't condone it, but will happily photograph the good stuff.

 

Art, you were saying something about a book?  :lol:

Nice shot, Herman.  The new camera appears to be working fine.  :)

Very impressive, Herman, even if the camera is hidden somewhere behind that flash.  ;)




#247001 Luminar 2018

I just bought the program a few months ago for full price!

 

Unfortunately, these folks don't have Nik's attitude towards customers.  I originally purchased Silver Efex Pro 2 at full price.  Then Nik offered the rest of the plug-ins at no extra charge.  It might be unreasonable to expect something like that, but surely users like Art deserve a better discount.

 

As a prospective buyer, MacPhun is NOT leaving me with a good impression.  <_<
