I second the 150-600 Tamron nomination. I mostly shoot wildlife with it, as I generally don't go for the telemash effect with my train photos.

After seeing the Samsung vs monitor, I would say the I see the yellow version on my laptop, calibrated monitor, and iPhone. Maybe it's time to dump the Samsung. :twisted:

The images look orange on my iPhone and my laptop - I haven't checked on my calibrated monitor, which is usually slightly different. Maybe your monitor has an issue.

I think there's still too much dead space, as originally pointed out. I think a crop like this will stand a better chance.

Agree with Mitch. Also, do not let the suggestion of the ROT in the rejection make you think that conforming to it means an automatic acceptance. The rejection is for composition and balance, not for...

I think you meant digital camera, Greg. I have a D750 with a 24-120 zoom and a 150-600 zoom. I would need to buy a prime lens with the correct size filter adapter for the slide adapter, and the FX...

For me, I would need an FX prime lens. That would add quite a bit to the overall price tag. As I said, I've seen good results from the DSLR method, but a device dedicated to the task works best for...

I know that frustration drove me to say more than I should have a while back, so I took a page from Bob Jordan's book and took a self-imposed exile for 30 days. It turns out that I broke a years-long...

I love my D750, but I seriously doubt that it will serve me for 43 years, even if I live to be 102. My SRT-101 has plenty of battle scars, but it would still be in use if some friends hadn't...

Bob,

I like your scene, but it is significantly darker than the accepted image. I did a quick edit of levels and cut down the orange saturation for this. I suspect that this may be closer to what...

I don't accept that as an excuse anymore. If an image is bad enough to have a killer flaw (PAQ, PIQ, Noise/Grain, Cloudy, and maybe one or two others), the initial screener should detect that flaw...
