It's not the equipment, Kent. I routinely get reasonable quality from my 70D (and 50D and 20D before) and zoom lens. You oversharpened them, badly.

I thought I did, I think I am. If you don't see what I am seeing then I guess I am not. Is there a full size option in flickr that I am missing?

Kent, those two shots don't look like your usual quality. Well oversharpened, I suspect. What am I missing?

Hey Dave, tell me about that bright blue bridge, please! It sort of looks like a bridge to nowhere, on both ends, but also it may be coming out of tunnels on both ends. Hard to tell.

As for RP,...

That is mighty golden! Looks oversaturated. But I don't know the location or the state of the foliage. Looking at the lead engines, looks a bit oversaturated. If you have a whitepoint dropper of...

Well, you may be lost but we need more to "find" you. :) In particular, you need software to resize. If you are unable to tell us what is currently on your computer, hard to help. We can recommend...

Not a fan. I think the shot is trying to do too much. On the one hand, it is a going away scenic in bad light. I think that is a no-go for RP.

But on the other hand, my complaint is different....

I think having a process with a second opinion is both good - it gives some shots a second look and thus, in some sense, gives an extra opportunity to get on - and bad, in that it suggests the...

I think cloudy/common is good phrasing and simply recognizes a tradeeff. It is only the definition of common that can confuse; common is more than just an ES44, it is any engine in an environment...

I agree with the others, but I would also suggest color over B/W. The shot just doesn't have the sort of tonal variation that makes for interesting B/W in my opinion.

I think you are wrong about this. Hard for me to remember, but I think one scrolls through the focus points with the top roller. It seems easy enough. If one has a body with 60+ focus points, on the...

On my 50D the switch is bottom center of the back. On my 70D it is part of the dial on top, left side. Are those both the wrong side? Inquiring minds want to know! You have more...
