    Not necessarily, you can pick up something like a Canon 5d MkII with lenses for under a grand second hand. I'd start pricing up lenses and work out which system works for you in that respect, It's what I ended up doing last time I bought a digital camera. Mirrorless camera are nice and small, but the lens ranges for some of them isn't that great, and what there is can be expensive. Depends how much you can/want to spend on glass. Probably the micro 4/3rds stuff is the best in that regard in price vs range. I ended up buying a Canon 100D second hand. It's tiny for a DSLR, and there's loads of cheap glass out there for it. I mostly have the 24mm f2.8 pancake on it which makes it a really compact package

    I wouldn't normally of commentated. There's a lot of photos I don't like, but as you say Which I absolutely agree with But then you say stuff like this and your arrogance for your stuff to the detriment of others is grating.

    I'll use this one as an example of what I'm talking about. It's someone selling some pretzels that isn't really that interesting. Any interest that could of been there you've killed by pushing contrast to the extreme. The contrast doesn't really boost anything in the photo, and feels as though you haven't thought though why you really doing it, or why you took the photo in the first place. The framing is also bad as you've got someone half hidden by a stack of pretzels. Contrast it to this photo of a pretzel seller by Vivian Maier. She's captured the sadness and desperation of the pretzel seller, which would of been enough for a portrait photo by itself. What she's also managed to do is contrast the presumed poverty of the pretzel seller with the more affluent New Yorkers. The shallow(ish) depth of field also helps to draw the eye in towards the seller.

    *Shrugs* I'm sure you think you're doing something revolutionary, but to be be honest it looks like average street photography. With the motion blur and heavy silhouetting on some photos it looks like a sixth form students take on it at that. A lot of the photos having boring composition and un-interesting subjects where you haven't really captured anything, and have just silhouetted them to try to create interest. Having said that, I do like four of them where you do seem to have captured a moment and the essence of the people you've shot. You probably need to learn what to keep and what to throw away. Also, ease back on the processing. Man with the beard is far too heavily processed though for my tastes

    To be honest I doubt even he knows which are the good ones

    @FishyFish That's really nice, I like that
  7. Yeah. I can only hope they calm it down in series 2 and allow the show to breathe Movie Trek doesn't work over a series.

    What are you trying to do, is there a particular look that you want your photos to have ? I tend to process each image individually (if it's worth doing) and don't use presets

    @Naysonymous Try having a play around with a crop of #1 ? I find the sign distracts from the effect of the image, cropping it out may/may not help ?

    CSI: Barry. Barry Allen is a police scientist who is slow and frequently late, much to the amusement of others.
  11. Pretty much every other spy film released the same year as Spectre - Rogue Nation, Man from Uncle and Spy where better

    @Naysonymous Colour looks fine on that to me. The colours are muted on the tree and building, so the colours on the lights really stand out. The ones I posted are medium format, which can take pushing a lot more than 35mm. I recently pushed a roll of 35mm HP5 to 1600 and it's grainmageddon. I kinda like it as a one off, but wouldn't do it regularly. TMAX 400 or Delta 400 may take pushing two stops at 35mm a bit better. 35mm HP5 pushed to 1600

    @FishyFish That's really good, I love that. Probably my favourite of yours you've posted on here. I've been enjoying shooting with 120 HP5 pushed to 1600
  14. I'm still kinda of enjoying it, but it's Trek in lip service only.
