There are definitely differences between publishing something in print and publishing something online. In the former case, the print run is fixed and when it's done it is done. Once distributed,...

I have recently had issues with the way RP displays on an IPAD. Sometimes, the picture will appear smaller and the caption and photo data will be offset to the right. I attribute it to the ads...

The backlit rejection is clearly a subjective thing. As noted, there are tons of backlit shots on RP.net. Sometimes, backlit MAKES the shot. It is all a matter of how it strikes the viewer, if...

Joe, from a lighting standpoint, I don't see any issues with this photo. In fact, you took it at a time of day when the lighting is pretty nice and much of the subject is well-lit. It's a shot I...

After reading the reference material at the link, what I did not see is how a photographer can assign a copyright to another. Perhaps I missed something, but it would seem to me that if someone...

I'm fine with this picture. As Bob noted, you could do something to brighten up that really dark group of trees at the bottom, but I wouldn't hit it with a hammer. Shadows are not a terrible...

Yes, I think the 3:5 crop works nicely for this image. It shaves off some of the more featureless stuff (grass, blue sky, etc) and saves all of the real interest. Besides, it's a wide scene. The...

I also wonder if this image might benefit from a 3:5 crop. That would shave a bit off the top and bottom, eliminating some of the more featureless areas and leaving all of the more detailed...

Saturation is always a tough call, as it can depend on a number of things, such as whether or not you are using a calibrated display. I am amazed that I got away without using one for many years,...

Another thought with regard to Z cameras. If you want to shoot in low light, get a Z6. I don't think you will be happy with the low-light performance of the higher resolution sensor on the Z7. ...

Overexposed? No. Too bright? That's a matter of opinion, but I think that is where the screener was going. I don't think he's imagining blown out areas. I think he just believes this image is...
