Al Chione was a huge seller of duplicate slides, mostly from other people's originals. He would give the original photographer a cut of the proceeds, and did not retain the original slides. Although...

I like it Dave. It's long been my contention that the best way to front page exposure is to point your camera into the light. It's also a fast track to rejection, and it's hard to see the dividing...

I agree with your assessment - I was just trying to work with the images as presented. The root of the problem here is that the bridge is a distraction, and takes away from the composition. My...

I don't understand how you can be centered AND observing ROT - they're mutually exclusive. Like Joe said, if you can't envision it in the viewfinder, shoot loose and get dead space out when you crop,...

The last two images you referenced were 16:9 and even more panoramic than 16:9. 16:9 is about the limit for aspect ratio for RP, and I would need a good reason me to use other than a 2:3 or 4:5...
